Kelly Clarkson Apologizes to International Fans

Kelly Clarkson Christmas

As you likely have heard, newlyweds Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock are expecting their first child together, which was announced weeks after their recent marriage. Kelly has revealed in recent interviews, as well as through social media, that the pregnancy has not been easy on her body thus far, and that she has been experiencing her fair share of related sickness.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Kelly apologized to her fans for being “incredibly ill” and hoped that she would be feeling back to normal soon. Kelly tweeted “I’m so sorry 2 all my fans overseas 4 not doing promo 4 my Xmas album. I have been incredibly ill w/pregnancy. Hopefully it gets better soon.”

EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Platinum-Selling, Grammy-Nominated Artist Jo Dee Messina

Jo Dee Messina

Country megastar and two-time Grammy Award nominee, Jo Dee Messina, has been named the Academy of Country Music Awards’ Top New Female Vocalist; Billboard Magazine’s Most Played Country Female Artist of the Year; Boston Music Awards’ Outstanding Country Act, Outstanding Female Vocalist, and Act of the Year; and the Country Music Association Awards’ Horizon Award recipient. She has been atop Billboard’s Country Music Chart and in the Top 15 of Billboard’s 200. She has platinum albums and gold albums and has experienced a myriad of successes. And while she has been seemingly quiet on the radio as of late, she never really said Bye Bye or even took any Downtime. We were unbelievably lucky to catch up with one of country music’s sensations to find out what she has been up to, when we can expect new music, and to chat about her time on the road – both musically and on foot. During our conversation, she convinced us I’m Alright, made it clear that she could handle anything, so Bring On the Rain, and, when the sun came back out, she made sure we knew that, in certain situations, My Give a Damn’s Busted. All in all, we found out that one of our favorite artists is on her way to a comeback with a vengeance and is ready to give the Peace Sign to naysayers!

First thing’s first – let’s clear up some rumors! Jo Dee never went away. In fact, she did quite the opposite; she has been touring, as well as making records for her fans. And while the songs she recorded on her former label may have ended up on shelves, you might be interested to find out that Jo Dee actually was first to record a song called Put Me In the Ground, which is more identifiable as The Band Perry‘s smash hit, Better Dig Two. When Jo Dee’s label failed to believe in the potential of Put Me In the Ground, it became mutually clear for Jo Dee and her label that it was time to part ways. (Oh, and Jo Dee is incredibly excited that the song has been successful for The Band Perry because she loves the song and she loves The Band Perry.)

Celebs Tweet the Darnedest Things!

It’s been an active week in the Twitterverse, and at the center of the activity lie some of your favorite country artists. Let’s cut to the chase and laugh together at the best of the best that we caught over the last seven days.

When life imitates art, and art involves driving without hands, you end up in the predicament Luke Bryan ended up in this week. Luke Bryan tweeted “@LukeBryanOnline: Before y’all get out of your truck. Make sure you put it in park. Trust me.”

Some very solid words of advice from Luke. Perhaps he, too, had his hands up while rocking in his truck…

I just saw Runner Runner and had some pleasant Justin Timberlake inspired dreams soon thereafter. Apparently I’m not the only one, based on Jennifer Nettles‘ recent tweet – “@JenniferNettles: I had a dream last night that my baby sleeping beside me yelled out ‘Ladieeees and Gentlemen: Justin Timberlaaaaaake’. ??? @jtimberlake

Not only is Justin Timberlake taking over the the music and acting world, he is taking over the dream world too. Hey, there are much worse people for your baby to introduce to you in your slumber.

Having 100,000 Twitter followers is a big deal. So, it should come as no surprise that some musicians will go through great lengths to encourage their fans to help them hit that landmark number. See Terri Clark who recently tweeted “@TerriClarkMusic: Ok so the first person to get me 100k twitter followers, gets my first born. Best hurry. My Ovaries=californiaraisinsdoingthebackstroke”

Perhaps an interesting offer, but if the kid pops out singing the way his/her mom does, it might be worth your while…

If you frequent the gym, you know there is always that character who flexes in the mirror and not-so-discretely checks himself out. Sunny Sweeney was lucky enough to spot that guy during her recent workout. Sunny tweeted “@GettinSweeney: The grunting slaps-his-stomach-in-the-mirror guy is in the gym. Yay! No.” Not long after Sunny tweeted, calling out the narcissistic gym-goer, she followed it up with “I also saw someone I knew in the gym. I hope he doesn’t think my last tweet was about him. Bahaha!!!”

Sir who Sunny knew in the gym, rest assure she was not mocking you. However, if you do, in fact, grunt and slap your stomach in the mirror, WE ARE mocking you.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: CMChat’s One to Watch — Abbi Scott

abbi scott.

Abbi Scott is an Indiana teenager who is in her senior year of high school and looking forward to graduation (much like all other high school seniors!). However, Abbi is not your typical high school senior. While Abbi has her face in textbooks, she has her sights set on music, and there is no stopping this country girl from making her dreams come true! Abbi describes herself as “a true country girl, living on twenty-five acres, and . . . in love with the outdoors.” Abbi has been compared to Miranda Lambert, Gretchen Wilson, and Kelly Clarkson, and values these music industry phenoms’ strong work ethic and ability to maintain a sense of humor.

Sarah Darling’s Dream Comes True

Before landing a record deal, country up and comer, Sarah Darling, waited tables in Nashville. Sarah waited on country megastars, including Alan Jackson. At that time, Sarah could only dream of sharing a stage with the likes of Mr. Jackson.

Recently, the former waitress was able to live out this dream as she opened for Alan Jackson during three shows. Sarah took to Twitter to express her excitement, calling the experience “beyond amazing.”  Sarah also tweeted “I was blessed to have been on tour with one of the most humble and gracious men in the  music business this weekend. What an unforgettable experience. Thank you Alan!”

Sarah Darling Meets Her Musical Hero

Sarah+Darling+promo1

Country music starlet Sarah Darling attended the premiere of “For the Love of Music…The Story of Nashville” during the Nashville Film Festival and just so happened to run in to one of her most-admired musical heroes, Joy Williams of The Civil Wars.

Darling posed for a photo with the GRAMMY Award-winning artist and then she tweeted “I met Joy from @thecivilwars last night! My favorite singer ever!”

The experience was an “honor,” Darling says, and adds that her big-screen debut in the film, which showcased one of her performances at the historic Grand Ole Opry, certainly was too. “To be featured in the film alongside so many talented artists in this town was truly humbling for me. I’m glad I could play a part in showcasing such an amazing city.”

Darling also commented on the film’s anticipated premiere in Tuesday’s issue of The Tennessean. “I couldn’t be more excited, because the doors are wide open for all kinds of musicians [here in Nashville],” she says. “If you have a passion for music, you should be here.”

Celebrating the success of her latest single, “Home To Me,” which has sold over 100,000 downloads and climbing, Darling is currently out with Scotty McCreery on tour as part of his Weekend Roadtrip Tour.
