We shared the internet buzz with you yesterday, but this morning Good Morning America made the official cast announcement for ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.

Country stars, Kellie Pickler and Wynonna Judd, will in fact be participating this season!

The always adorable and fun, Pickler, will be paired with Derek Hough, the brother of another country sweetheart, Julianne Hough. Pickler is the first past American Idol contestant to compete on the show.

Meanwhile, vocal powerhouse and 5-time Grammy winner, Judd, will be partnered with Tony Dovolani.

It should be an entertaining season for country music fans. Both pairs are a great match, and I can’t wait to watch!

Country stars react to Mindy McCready’s suicide

Mindy McCready.

It’s been a tragic twenty-four hours for the country music community after learning about the passing of singer Mindy McCready. The “Ten Thousand Angels” artist was found dead from an apparent suicide last night in Arkansas. Mindy was 37 years old and leaves behind a six year old and a nine-year old son.

See what some of country’s brightest stars had to share about the sad news:

Oak Ridge Boys: We sang “Farther Along” last night in honor of Mindy McCready. One day we will know!!!!!

John Rich: Very sad to hear about Mindy McCready. When I was in Lonestar she was our label mate and we were friends. A tragic end to a talented life.

Jana Kramer: So sad to hear about the loss of Mindy. What an insanely talented woman.

Michelle Wright: As you may know Mindy McCready has passed on. She was a young promising country music artist in the mid ’90′s but faced a number of challenges and I’m so sad that she lost the battle with addiction and mental illness which can also cause depression. I’ve been sober now for several years and I know how hard it can be sometimes. RIP Mindy.

Jimmy Wayne: RIP @mindymccready We met 14 years ago @ Acuff & Rose. Who’d thought 14 years later on this day…. #why

Jason Blaine: Sad to hear about the passing of Mindy McCready. Thoughts & prayers for her young children. Tragic situation.

Carrie Underwood: I grew up listening to Mindy McCready… so sad for her family tonight. Many prayers are going out to them…

Wynonna Judd has been forced to postpone her upcoming Canadian tour dates due to her husband’s serious motorcycle accident. Michael Scott “Cactus,” Moser, who works as her drummer, and Wynonna were on their own bikes in Deadwood, South Dakota on Saturday night when Cactus collided with an oncoming vehicle. He was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The accident occurred before her show in Deadwood. Wynonna was not involved in the accident.

“The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I. Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side.”

The pair were married this past June in Tennessee. Her upcoming Canadian dates scheduled for this week will be postponed until further notice. We here at Keepin’ it Country wish Cactus a speedy recovery and hope to see them both on tour again soon!
