Yesterday’s Super Bowl gave Americans across the country reason to party, but longtime country star Randy Travis carried the festivities on until very early this morning, apparently. Travis was arrested at 1:30 a.m. Monday morning in Sanger, Texas because police noticed his odd behavior and arrested him on a charge of suspicion of public intoxication.
As season two of ‘The Voice‘ gets ready to hit airwaves, one of the show’s celeb judges, Blake Shelton, is taking his season one pick on the road with him for his Well Lit and Amplified Tour. He invited season one finalist Dia Frampton to join the caravan as a supporting act alongside Justin Moore.
The new issue of Rolling Stone has just been revealed, and fronting the rock and pop culture mag is none other than Blake Shelton, joined by his fellow celebrity judges from NBC’s smash entertainment show ‘The Voice.’ In jeans and a black button-up, Shelton is a mixture of dapper and Nashville outlaw, with his outdoorsman, barbed wire and deer track tattoo exposed just below his rolled cuff.

After spending three full weeks on vocal rest to recover from surgery to remove a polyp from his vocal cord, Keith Urban is back and ready to take the stage (and the mic) again. The ‘You’ll Think of Me’ singer will be performing live for the first time since his vocal absence on Feb. 3 at the Grand Ole Opry. In retrospect, he says 21 days of complete silence proved to be quite the challenge — both physically and emotionally — as he tried to recover and also not slip up and speak.

Appearing on the ‘Today’ show this morning because of their new film ‘Joyful Noise,’ Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah took the descriptor “cross-genre” just one step further.

We just thought it’d be rap stuff,” and then she jumped right into a rap with Latifah beat-boxing at her side.

Traveling from San Diego, Calif. to Fort Wayne, Ind., a private plane carrying seven of her band members and her tour manager crashed in a fatal instant, killing everyone.
