Kellie Pickler’s Drummer, Gregg Lohman, Seriously Injured in Car Accident


Kellie Pickler’s drummer, Gregg Lohman, was seriously injured in a car accident involving four cars on Interstate 65 near Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday. He is currently in ICU at Louisville Hospital. According to Nashville TV station WKRN, he is in serious but stable condition.

Kellie shared this statement on her Facebook & Twitter pages:

“@kelliepickler: Yesterday, my drummer Gregg Lohman was in a horrific car accident and is currently in ICU. Gregg is not just my drummer, he is family. I believe in miracles and the power of prayer, so it would mean the world to me, my band, and Gregg’s family if you would please keep him in your prayers. Thank y’all so much. -Pickler”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Gregg, his family, Kellie, and the band/crew. We hope Gregg makes a full recovery and will be back behind his drums soon.

A Look Back at AMAs Fashion


This Sunday marks the 40th Anniversary of the American Music Awards, and when we think of decades past, we think of one thing — crazy fashion choices! So, in anticipation of this year’s big show, we decided to do a little fashion policing of our own (sorry Joan), because though the awards are really about the music, the thing that seems to get the most lasting buzz is the red carpet do’s and don’t’s!  Below are our staff’s picks for country music’s fashionistas and fashion faux pas in AMA history!

Kellie Pickler Signs With Black River Entertainment

Kellie Pickler.

Kellie Pickler has finally found a new home! The country music sweetheart was just announced this morning as the newest addition to the artist roster at Black River Entertainment. The label is already home to Craig Morgan, Due West, Glen Templeton, and Sarah Darling.

Gordon Kerr, CEO of Black River Entertainment, was pretty excited about the announcement. He shares:

“What’s not to love about Kellie? She’s real, she adores her fans, she’s rooted in and committed to country music and she’s genuine.  How can you ask for more than that?”

Kellie added exactly why she chose the label for her new home. She left Sony Music Nashville earlier this year.

“In looking for a label partner, I was really drawn to the Black River family because they hold similar values that I do.  From our initial meeting, it was clear to me how much the entire team respects the artists’ musical vision, and I’m really looking forward to getting back into the studio to record and release new music to country radio.”

Kellie released her latest album “100 Proof” earlier this year. Only two singles were sent to radio from the album – lead off single “Tough” followed by the title track. “100 Proof” was produced by Miranda Lambert producer Frank Liddell and shows off the real country side of the North Carolina native. Check out the picture of the signing below:
