Our favorite sometimes-country star Kelly Clarkson has been making her way around the US this year to promote her new CD Stronger. At each stop, Kelly has been doing a “Fan Request” song by picking from requests on twitter tagged with the hashtag #kcrequests. The shows have been following a pattern with each stop alternating between one of Kelly’s own songs and a cover song. Last night Kelly was in Austin, TX and claimed she had a lot of Miranda Lambert and Pistol Annies requests. So, Kelly covered one of her favorites – the Pistol Annies “Hell On Heels.” As usual, Kelly once again proves she can sing pretty much anything! Check out the video below and let us know what you think!

 

Video Picks Of The Week: December 30, 2011

Jason Aldean & Kelly Clarkson

Hello friends…

We hope that you all had a great holiday!

We are returning to our regularly scheduled programming with our “Video Picks of the Week.”

Music Video

This week’s music video is the Pistol Annie‘s hit first single, “Hell on Heels.” The Annies sure were a surprise this year, but what an awesome surprise they were. “Hell on Heels” is one of my favorite songs of the year and Miranda Lambert, Angaleena Presley, and Ashley Monroe’s voices blend so well together. They are the perfect country trio.

Live Performance

This week’s live performance pick is Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson performing their cross-over mega hit “Don’t You Wanna Stay” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Don’t You Wanna Stay” was definitely one of the biggest and best songs of 2011 as well as one of my favorites. Aldean and Clarkson made great duet partners, and the song earned them a nomination for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” at the upcoming 54th Grammy Awards.

Cover Song

Taylor Swift is pretty much unstoppable. She had another huge year and wrapped up her widely successful “Speak Now World Tour.” As you probably know, Swift performed a cover song by a hometown artist in most cities along the tour run. When she stopped in Philly, she did a mash-up of Pink’s “Who Knew” and TLC’s “Unpretty.” It was one of my favorites from the whole tour. What was your favorite? Thank-you to Taylor’s fan for sharing the concert videos.

Have a happy and safe New Year!

Rolling Stone – “Best of 2011″ Lists

Pistol Annies

Rolling Stone editors have published their annual “Best of ” lists, including their favorite albums and singles of 2011. It is always noteworthy and an impressive feat to get recognition from the iconic publication. Check out which country artists made the lists!

Country favorite, Miranda Lambert, has had a year for the books both professionally and personally. She experienced career milestones and great success, as well as married her best friend and the other half of country’s most adored couple, Blake Shelton. She also brought us the current hottest trio in music with the Pistol Annies, which is made up of Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley in addition to Lambert. And now, Lambert and the Annies are getting some acknowledgment from Rolling Stone.

Lambert’s album, Four The Record, is number 31 on the “50 Best Albums” list and the Pistol Annies’ album, Hell on Heels, holds the number 29 spot. Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” also was chosen as number 26 on the “50 Best Singles” list. What a way to end the year. Congratulations to Lambert, Monroe, and Presley! There surely will be more big things for them in 2012. Be ready!

The other country star to make the Rolling Stone lists is Eric Church. He had an impressive year of his own with his first number one album, Chief, as well as a “Best Country Album” nomination for the upcoming 54th Grammy Awards. Rolling Stone named Chief the 19th “Best Album of 2011″ and chose his song, “Springsteen,”  as number 30 on the “Best Singles” list. Congratulations to Eric! I am sure he will see even more success in 2012 as well.
