The Band Perry rocked the stage last night during the American Idol finale.
The trio was joined by Top 5 finalist and country girl, Janelle Arthur, to sing their current single, “Done.” They lit up the stage with electrifying energy, fun, and even some head banging. The Band Perry sure does know how to do a performance! And Janelle fit right in.
If you missed the performance, check out the video below. It was one of my favorites of the night!
“Done” is TBP’s second single off of their new album, Pioneer! I’ve probably mentioned how much I love the album, but I’ll say it again. A must buy for your country music list!
Keith Urban was pulling double duty on American Idol tonight. Our country judge took the stage during the finale to perform his new single, “Little Bit Of Everything” and he sounded great! Check out the video below to watch the performance.
Urban joined the Idol panel this season, and while there have been rumors that the show is cleaning house, there is no official word yet on Urban’s status.
People.com reported that at a press conference on Wednesday, the country superstar stated that he wanted to return as a judge next year:
“I would. I mean, I literally enjoy coming to work every day, and that’s a rarity.”
We would love to see KU back at the judges’ table for Season 13! We hope Idol leaves the decision up to him. While Randy Jackson and Nicki Minaj will not be returning to the panel, there is no official word yet on Mariah Carey.
Although “Cruise” is already a bona fide hit, the guys of Florida Georgia Line are ready to ride the wave even further, with the release of the “Cruise” Remix, featuring Grammy-Winner Nelly. The country duo and hip hop star recently joined forced in the California desert to film a video full of fast cars, women and slick moves. We’ve got your first look before the video hits VEVO on Monday, May 13th.
It’s no secret that Blake Shelton is a modern-day Renaissance man. He’s a singer, host, Voice-coach, professional tweeting entertainer extraordinaire. However, he’s adding a new role to his repertoire: minister.
Now now, pick up your jaw from the floor. Blake isn’t dumping Miranda for a monastery or anything crazy. However, he will be officiating the wedding between his pals, Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock.
Although they have yet to nail down a date, Clarkson revealed to “Entertainment Tonight”‘s Nancy O’Dell that the nuptials will take place this October with Blake at the altar. Although some would be worried about entrusting their wedding to Shelton, Clarkson has the utmost trust in her bud’s poise. Plus, she’s admits, she’ll already be married. “Well, you’re technically already married when the ceremony happens. So it’s not like it’s gonna be null and void or anything ’cause it’s Blake.”
Clarkson also revealed that she already has a dress, and that she isn’t the only superstar Blake will be marrying! Watch the interview below!
It’s no secret that we here at Keepin’ It Country love Lee Brice. It’s also no secret that we LOVE “I Drive Your Truck.” In fact, the song makes us swoon, cry, squeal, sigh…You get the picture. It’s actually quite embarrassing to know us. However, if you thought the song couldn’t possibly get any better, you were wrong. Lee has just released an acoustic video for the song, and we’ve got one word: wow.
Listen below and let us know what you think. Hint, you’re going to think it’s amazing.
Once upon a time, Kelly Clarkson won a little show called American Idol. And then she did a ton of awesomely impressive stuff. However, she may have topped it all today. Backed by the United States Marine Band, KC did America proud, taking to the steps of the Capitol to perform “America (My Country ‘Tis of Thee)” at the Inauguration of President Barack Obama. Who knew the song had so many verses?!
After the performance, Clarkson jokingly tweeted, “Wow ….I was incredibly nervous and cold ha! I just wanna officially thank President Obama for opening for me haha! Just kidding :)”
Check out Kelly’s stirring performance below…I don’t know about you, but this song never sounded so good in my elementary school home room.
In support of his forthcoming album, We Got A Lot To Drink About, country artist Phoenix Stone released his music video for “100 Proof Moonshine.” The song is the first single off his new album, which will be released next year.
Stone teamed up with Ole Smoky Moonshine to help promote the single. “…A few months ago, I was in the Smoky Mountains, and stumbled upon this store that sold moonshine. I love having moonshine parties, and having friends over at the house, just having fun. Then, the song came along, so now we are in a partnership with them. We’re going to take some moonshine out on the road with us on a radio tour.”
Little Big Town‘s “Pontoon,” a playful ode to mmmmmotorboating, has certainly been the undeniable country hit of the summer. With its infectious hook, cheery beat and playful lyrics, the song certainly has a ton of appeal…including with celebs! With appearances by everyone from Carrie Underwood to Luke Bryan to Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker and Hunter Hayes, this fun video certainly celebrates 2012′s summer anthem.
