After the success of Reba McEntire‘s first sitcom, “Reba,” it should come as no surprise that the superstar’s sophomore situation comedy project has already taken off and made huge strides!

“Malibu Country” premiered on Friday night in the 8:30pm time slot on ABC and drew in 8.9 million viewers. Reba’s new show is about a Nashville-stationed country singer (cleverly named Reba) who finds out her husband has been cheating on her. As a result, she picks up her life and moves herself and her children to Southern California in an attempt to start over. “Malibu Country” also stars Lily Tomlin and Sara Rue. Plus, rumor has it we will be seeing Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson making cameos soon enough!

Tune in on Friday night at 8:30pm to check out ABC’s next biggest hit show!

Calling All Kelly Clarkson Country Critics!

kelly_clarkson_country_music_awards_2

If you are a frequent visitor of this website, you know that the staff here recognizes, appreciates, and, well, flat out loves us some Kelly Clarkson. We have always embraced her as a country music stepchild and, now, country music itself has made it more official and has clearly adopted her into their family. However, it seems that some country music fans out there are struggling with the genre’s “newcomer.” We would love to say we understand the conundrum, but we don’t. Maybe it is because we know Kelly’s relationship with country music isn’t nearly as new as people may believe. In fact, to us, it was only a matter of time before pop-rock, man bashing Kelly turned the corner and embraced her musical roots. So, for all of you nay-sayers out there, we have compiled a Top 10 list to show you just why Kelly Clarkson going country makes perfect sense.

Blake Shelton To Tape Christmas Special with Special Guests in Los Angeles

Blake Shelton

Earlier this week, we told you that Blake Shelton was offering one lucky fan an exclusive opportunity to fly to Los Angeles to attend a private television taping with Mr. Shelton himself. We’ve learned that Blake will be joined by Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire and his mom, Dorothy Shackleford, at this taping, which just may get attendees into the holiday spirit a little early this year. The special will air on NBC (Date TBA), and is entitled “Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas Special.”

Expect to hear songs from Blake’s Holiday album, Cheers, It’s Christmas, which features all those lovely ladies. They technically may all not be Blake’s family, but we have to laugh, as he’s enlisted his wife, his mom, and his manager’s step-mom and girlfriend. I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty dang “family” to me!

The Queen of country music is retiring from hosting the Academy of Country Music Awards. After a report surfaced earlier today, ACM CEO Bob Romero decided to put the rumors to rest and confirm that Reba McEntire will not return to co-host the award show next year. However, Blake Shelton will once again return – with something up his sleeve.

Bob shares:

“Reba has hosted the ACM Awards a record 14 times since 1986, and we fully understand and support her decision to focus her energies on her new television project, We’ve known about this for a while and have something very special planned with Blake returning—he’s got something big up his sleeve!—that we’ll be announcing soon. Stay tuned!”

Taylor Swift Removes Capital Hoedown Date From Site

Although several of the artists that comprised the star-studded lineup for this year’s Capital Hoedown backed out last week, the festival is still looking to move ahead.

However, although not confirmed, they may just have to do that without the performance of Taylor Swift after the Ottawa date was removed from her official website. Although the Hoedown site still lists Swift as appearing, it also lists several other artists that have backed out, including Brad Paisley, Reba McEntire, Ronnie Dunn, The Band Perry and Terri Clark.

Yesterday, Hoedown founder Denis Benoit stated that changes to the artist lineup will be announced shortly. In addition, he was quoted saying, “We can assure everyone that there will be favourable additions to the line-up that fans will be pleased with.”

The statement also made clear that the show will now take place at an undisclosed venue that will be announced soon, but Benoit assures it is a large private site only minutes away from the original location. Last week, the City of Ottawa cancelled its agreement with Hoedown to host the event at Walter Baker Park due to a payment that was never made to the City.

Ticketholders who are no longer interested will be able to receive refunds starting June 19th.

Stay tuned as we will let fans know the new venue and changes to the lineup as they are made available to us.
