Kip Moore, Vince Gill & Pam Tillis appearing on Nashville

Kip Moore.

ABC’s hit new series “Nashville” is really pumping up its country music cred. After already having country stars Chris Young and Brantley Gilbert have cameo performances on previous episodes, producers announced that Kip Moore, the legendary Vince Gill, and Pam Tillis will be part of the February 27th episode.  The episode follows the birthday of character Deacon, who is played by Charles Esten.

Kip, who is a fan of the show, shares on why he hopes fans don’t think the real Nashville isn’t as dramatic:

”I don’t think that everybody believes that’s exactly how Nashville is. Tell people to lighten up a little bit. It’s TV. You gotta put the drama in there, and you gotta do stuff entertaining for people.”

Check out the preview for “Dear Brother” below. Who do you want to see appear on the show next?

ce987f89d1bb9987f09a06ea5d026c2f

Just a little over an hour ago, 98 WSIX premiered Kelly Clarkson and Vince Gill‘s new duet “Don’t Rush.” Kelly took to Twitter to share her excitement over her new country song:

Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson): No, I’m totally not in my car waiting to hear my song Don’t Rush played 4 the 1st time on 97.9 in Nashville ….that would be embarrassing:)
Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson): Thank you @98WSIX for playing my new song Don’t Rush!! I sat in my car, in front of my house, just so I could hear it ha! I owe y’all!!

How cute is she?

If you didn’t already think Kelly was getting in tune with her country side – here’s your proof! Kelly has previously had country hit duets with a re-recording of her hit “Because of You” with fellow singer and good friend Reba McEntire, along with the smash “Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Jason Aldean. Kelly also recorded a country version of her single “Mr. Know It All” for country radio.

“Don’t Rush” is off her upcoming Greatest Hits – Chapter 1 album due out next month. Kelly is also nominated in the CMA Female Vocalist of The Year category for this week’s CMA Awards.

The song has somewhat of an older, but sexy country feel. Listen below to hear your first listen of “Don’t Rush”(Or if you’re like us, this is your 10+ listen because you can’t get enough of it…)

We just have one wish left: Make a country album, Kelly!

Kelly’s team has confirmed that the single will be available for purchase on iTunes starting tomorrow. What do you think? Let us know below!

VIDEO: Kelly Clarkson Takes Us to Church with a Vince Gill Cover

It’s no secret to the world that Kelly Clarkson can sing absolutely anything. It’s also no secret to the world that Kelly Clarkson absolutely ROCKS when she dips her toes into country music. Although we’re holding out hope that she eventually dips way more than her toes, for the time being, we’ll take what we can get.

On Saturday, September 15th, KC took the stage in her new permanent hometown of Nashville to blow the roof off the Bridgestone arena. (Trust us, we were there.) Performing in the Capital of Music City, it was a shock to no one when she opted to cover a country song.

Dedicating the song to her guitarist’s deceased uncle, Clarkson literally took Bridgestone to church with a powerful rendition of Vince Gill‘s “Go Rest High on That Mountain.”

Vince Gill.

Just a few days after performing at CRS for the Universal Music Group’s luncheon at the Ryman; it looks like he really has left his label home of over 23 years. The announcement was made by Vince himself:

“For the first time in 30 years, I don’t have a record deal. Don’t know that I want one. I’m just grateful for where I’ve been, and you’ve been a big part of where I’ve been and where I’m going. To my MCA family, it was really a sweet ride the last 23 years, and I appreciate everything you do.”

Rising country artist Marlee Scott has announced plans to release a brand-new single this month. “Train Wreck,” which features guest vocals from the legendary Vince Gill, will be sent to radio January 23rd and will be available for purchase on iTunes on January 24th. The song, a co-write by Nashville songwriting veterans Marcus Hummon, Jedd Hughes, and Sarah Buxton, is the second single from Marlee’s upcoming album due out in the Spring. In addition to the country second single, a dance remix of “Train Wreck” will also be released late January.

Marlee has been hard at work on her debut U.S. album with producer David Kalmunsky, who produced the lead single “Beautiful Maybe” from the album.

“Train Wreck grabbed me right out of the gate the first time I heard it,” says Marlee.  “The Country/Rock groove and Bluegrass down-home Country chorus had me dancing around my condo!  It brings such a fun tongue-in-cheek outlook on what it’s like to fall for the wrong person, but you just can’t seem to get enough.  I love making people smile and chuckle and want to sing along, and ‘Train Wreck’ seems to do it every time.”

On working with Marlee on the single, and how he loves Canadian music, Vince said:

“Canada has had a great history of some of the best music I have ever heard.  My wish for Marlee is to be part of that rich history.”

Marlee filmed the music video for the single in December with director Roman White (Blake Shelton‘s “Hillbilly Bone,” Taylor Swift‘s “Fifteen,” Lady Antebellum‘s “Hello World”). She’s currently on a Canadian and American radio station tour promoting the new single. In 2011, she visited over 100 radio stations and still had time to make some major appearances along the way.
