Willie Nelson gave his fans a major scare over the weekend when he canceled his Saturday night gig. Reports quickly surfaced that he was hospitalized because he was having trouble breathing, but fear not! The iconic country singer is back on the road again and he’s as fit as a fiddle.
After 15 years of wedded bliss — and two mega-sized country music careers between them — Tim McGraw and Faith Hill know a thing or two about maintaining a successful marriage. Of course, that doesn’t mean that the King and Queen of country music don’t have their hangups with each other. Recently, McGraw and Hill dished their marriage secrets… and their pet peeves about their partner.
When Scotty McCreery took the stage to open for Brad Paisley in Bethel, N.Y. over the weekend, he must not have paid close enough attention to the width of the walkway into the crowd. Either that, or maybe he was rocking out so hard during the final tune of his set that he lost his balance, because he accidentally tumbled off the stage mid-song.
Blake Shelton has a tendency to act like life is all fun and games, but the sometimes-sensitive country star knows when to be serious, too. Recently, he turned off his typically controversial Twitter persona to help raise support for Harlie Bryant, a six-year-old little girl who is suffering from brain cancer.
America has been a nation of heavy hearts since a gunman opened fire on a movie theater during a midnight showing of ‘The Dark Night Rises.’ In light of the unspeakable tragedy, Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw had an emotional stopover in Denver when they played the Sports Authority Field on Saturday night (July 21).
Craig Morgan is more than just a country singer. Although he’s a mega-talented star, Morgan also served in the U.S. Army for 10 years, worked as a police officer and served a short stint as a Walmart employee.

Our hearts go out to Jake Owen, who lost his dear godmother, Pearl, on Tuesday (July 10). Owen may not talk about her much in interviews, but if you look closely, you can spot a tattoo of Pearl’s name on the country star’s left wrist.
Rascal Flatts have been on top of the country music scene and regularly churning out hits for more than a decade now. With platinum-selling records and thousands of miles on the road, we couldn’t imagine that the Flatts would call it quits anytime soon.
We’ve posted plenty of photos of country stars’ adorable pets, but Joe Don Rooney’s sweet brindle bulldog might win the prize for the cutest puppy ever.
