Tim McGraw ended Carrie Underwood’s four-year-winning streak for the top prize at the 2016 CMT Music Awards with his music video for “Humble and Kind” — which features footage provided by Oprah Winfrey — while stars from outside the country music world performed onstage, including Pharrell, Cheap Trick and Pitbull. McGraw thanked Winfrey, Tyler Perry, video director Wes Edwards and others onstage Wednesday night at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. “When we make a footprint as an artist, there’s a lot of people involved in making that footprint. And we do it because we hope to move you, we hope that we make a little bit of an impact in your life, and you care a little bit about what we do,” McGraw said onstage. “Thank y’all for caring a little bit about what we do, because we care a whole lot about y’all.” “Humble and Kind” was inspired by McGraw’s daughter’s … [Read more...] about CMTA Awards 2016: Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood win big; Pharrell performs with country act Little Big Town
Adele isn’t just a powerhouse vocalist — she can rap too! The Grammy winner showed off her skills when she joined James Corden for his latest installment of Carpool Karaoke on Wednesday’s “The Late Late Show.” Corden filmed the segment with Adele in London over the holidays, and while the two belted out some of her greatest hits including “Hello” and “Someone Like You,” they also treated fans to some unlikely covers. STEVE WONDER MAKES JAMES CORDEN CRY DURING CARPOOL KARAOKE “I heard a rumor, which may be surprising to some fans, that you’re quite the rapper,” the host told her. “I’m not that talented on me own,” she protested, before launching into a flawless rendition of Nicki Minaj’s verse from Kanye West’s “Monster.” Minaj caught wind of Adele’s cover and took to social media to praise the star soon … [Read more...] about Adele covers Nicki Minaj, Spice Girls during Carpool Karaoke with James Corden
Angelina gets three covers this week, Britney gets one and - hold your breath - Michelle Obama graces Us Weekly with her hubby and the headline “Why Barack Does the potential future First Lady seem too poised and classy for our weekly newsstand fix? Nah, she shops at Target. She’s just like us! Tori Spelling’s frequently maligned mother, Candy, has given each of Tori’s kids a $2 million trust fund, says Star. The investment is also known as a $2 million so-you-won’t-have-to-do-reality-TV fund. Life & Style has pix of Jennifer Garner accidentally locking her 2-year-old, Violet, in the car. “Thankfully, through a cracked-open window, Jen was able to coach Violet on how to unlock the car,” says the mag. If this was the Spears family, that kid would have lunged for the gas pedal and steered straight for the nearest photographer. Katie Holmes reportedly sent Nicole Kidman a gift basket filled with expensive … [Read more...] about Michelle Obama makes the tabloids
With a repeat of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater Thursday, we opted to give you more from the side stages instead. Of those side stage shows, here's which ones we'd write home about and which ones we'd forgo. Tegan and Sara at the Miller Lite OasisWhile many finding themselves standing in front of the Miller Lite Oasis Thursday night likely spent their day frying in the sun or punching the clock, Tegan Quin of sister duo Tegan and Sara had a very refreshing afternoon.She told the crowd she took in not only the Milwaukee Art Museum but also the Milwaukee Public Museum — plus an IMAX movie surrounded by kids and a stroll along the river.The chill, introspective itinerary is no surprise given her veteran band's chill, introspective tunes. It amounted to a more thoughtful, emotionally complex set compared with many of this year's headliners on Summerfest's largest grounds stage (ahem, Steve Aoki), and inevitably, … [Read more...] about Best and worst of Summerfest Day 8: Wisconsin acts and festival veterans pack punches
The best of the celebrity mags Cute is the word this week! Us Weekly features gooey Reese and Jake and their "Love Story" on the cover. But OK one-ups Us on the adorability scale, with a cover of Shiloh and Suri , who appear to be walking down a sidewalk side by side. (As far as I know, these two have never done lunch, so I suspect there's some Photoshopping involved. But I guess you never know in Hollywood. It could have been the Power Playdate of the Year.) The cover claims both of these almost-2-year-olds are getting ready to be big sisters. Wait - did Tom-Kat make an announcement while I was engrossed in Britney's "How I Met Your Mother" appearance? Here's what the mags are talking about this week ... Britney is getting rave reviews for her guest appearance on the CBS sitcom. She was professional, polite, talented ... completely unlike what everyone was expecting. Life & Style go "Home with Nicole and Joel ." Well, not really "home," since they weren't actually … [Read more...] about Shiloh and Suri: Power playdate?
Radio Dial Almost everyone would agree, for instance, on WABC and WMCA of the late '60s, Scott Shannon's original Z100 of the mid-'80s, WCBS-FM of the '90s, the first WKTU, the early hip-hop Hot-97 and Frankie Crocker's first WBLS. Couldn't omit the early WNEW-FM, and certainly not the WNEW-AM of William B. Williams. But others are equally worthy, and while time must pass to confirm a lineup's durability, it seems likely that a few years from now, many of today's teens will say the same thing about the current WHTZ (Z100, 100.3 FM). For one thing, it just plain has a lot of listeners - more than 2.5 million a week. It's currently the No. 2 overall station in New York, trailing only WLTW (106.7 FM). It's a strong No. 1 among its target audience of 18- to 34-year-olds. In the morning, Elvis Duran's Morning Zoo is a close No. 2 behind WINS (1010 AM), and a runaway No. 1 among 18-34s. "One day we're going to think of Elvis and the Zoo as one of the all-time best New York … [Read more...] about Z100 has the hear-marks of a classic
Sustaining a pop career is like storming Normandy Beach on D-Day - all by yourself. Every time an artist releases some music, they're besieged by the industry's equivalent to heavily armed soldiers (i.e. unsympathetic radio programmers, fickle consumers and cutthroat competing artists), all firing bullets that could end their career at any moment. Never is this peril greater than in the fall. That's when the heaviest guns come out (i.e., the most starry competition), making the potential for failure that much more common - and public. Autumn '07 has its own bloody battles in store. 50 Cent and Kanye West will go mano-a-mano on an already loaded day (Tuesday, Sept. 11), releasing their respective third CDs to create a punishing game of compare-and-contrast. Alicia Keys will face the daunting task of topping her excellent first two CDs with a third (out Oct. 23), while Nicole Scherzinger kicks off a potentially ruinous trend for the culture at large by becoming the first … [Read more...] about Battle of the bands
Some of the biggest names in popular music will swing through metro Phoenix this spring, from the Used to Pentatonix. For those about to rock, you've got Slipknot at Ak-Chin Pavilion. And for those about to drink, well, Eric Church and Jake Owen are heading to Florence for the four-day rager that is Country Thunder 2016. Here's a look at those and other big shows. We'll be back with critic's picks.There's a reason this one sold out so ridiculously fast. The Killers are way too big to play the Marquee Theatre and they don't tour so much these days, although they have been working on their first release in four years with producers Flood and Alan Moulder. It's been 13 years since Brandon Flowers and his bandmates hit the mainstream with a triple-platinum breakthrough hit called "Mr. Brightside." Subsequent calling cards include the triple-platinum "Somebody Told Me" and three platinum singles, "All These Things That I've Done," "When You Were … [Read more...] about Big spring concerts playing Phoenix: Rihanna!
