Carrie Underwood warned her Twitter followers that she was planning a sneak attack late last night (March 2), but she didn’t share the details right away. It left us wondering what exactly the ‘Good Girl’ singer had on her mind.
Reba McEntire was the subject of Friday night’s (March 2) NBC documentary series ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ As the star of the show, McEntire was given the opportunity to trace her ancestral roots back several centuries in America and England and chart her familial course. The fire-haired singer did discover things that pained her greatly, such as the fact that one of her great grandfathers was a slave owner while another was an indentured servant himself.
Miranda Lambert has a more active role on this season of ‘The Voice.’ While she supported her husband, coach Blake Shelton, last season and performed with his finalist Dia Frampton on air, this season, she’s more deeply involved as an advisor to Shelton’s team.
There’s raging speculation over which artists will fill the two vacant mentor positions on the ‘X Factor‘ panel. Heavyweight pop divas like Mariah Carey and Beyonce have seen their names tossed into the ring. Another emerging contender for one of the coveted slots? LeAnn Rimes – and with good reason. ‘X Factor’ could use a dose of country, stat.
Keith Urban hits the desert sand in his video for ‘For You.’ The song appears in the upcoming action flick ‘Act of Valor,’ which tells the story of Navy SEALS. This clip features Urban and his band performing in the baking hot heat of the sun, spliced with images from the film.
Neal McCoy will release his new album ‘XII’ on March 6 after a five-year hiatus. The album, produced by country couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, is McCoy’s 12th studio effort.

Dierks Bentley‘s got a generous heart and a pointed interest in supporting our troops and their families, especially those in need. The country singer gifted a military family who needed a little help with a $50,000 donation on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Wednesday, and he was met with a hug from a uniformed officer and his wife, who shed tears of joy over Bentley’s financial contribution on their behalf.
What does a incredibly successful country superstar do to celebrate his good fortunes, which include notching his eighth No. 1 hit (‘Tattoos on This Town’), releasing one of the best-selling albums of the past two years (‘My Kinda Party’) and embarking on a sold-out tour? Well, fulfilling a dream like purchasing a nice chunk of property is great way to enjoy the fruits of your labor and that’s just what Jason Aldean did.
Looking resplendent in a black and gold strapless gown, Carrie Underwood welcomed her duet partner, Tony Bennett, to the 2012 Grammy Awards stage with quite an intro. She called him “the best new artist of all time,” since he continues to reach a new generation of fans year after year with his music.
Congrats to the Civil Wars for picking up the Best Country Duo/Group Performance award at the 2012 Grammy Awards. The pair nabbed the trophy for their debut album, ‘Barton Hollow.’ While the Civil Wars, and their music, are obviously quality enough to earn them a Grammy and the national attention that comes along with it, it was frontman John Paul White’s acceptance speech that will be vividly remembered.
Alison Krauss and Union Station accepted the 2012 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album for ‘Paper Airplane.’ This particular award was not televised on CBS — the actual prime time broadcast begins at 8PM ET.

The bulk of the awards are handed out during the online stream, so this segment is more about the awards than the performances.
