Blake Shelton visited with media in Nashville- he chatted with Bobby Bones and celebrated his five number one's at a party hosted by BMI.
The singer has noticeably become thinner in appearance, to which he addresses with America's Morning Show with Blair Garner. The radio host calls Shelton out on his slimmed down frame. As always the performer cracked a few jokes but then became real that the divorce took a toll on the singer.
Kellie Pickler’s new reality series will debut Nov. 5 on CMT. The former “American Idol” contestant and “Dancing with the Stars” champion is making her return to TV. Her new show, I Love Kellie Pickler, will focus on how she balances relationships, her music, and life in general and will star both her and her songwriter husband, Kyle Jacobs.
Pickler’s friend, Ryan Seacrest, is the executive producer for the new show
“I’ve been offered reality shows since Idol. With Ryan, it just felt right. We’ve been talking about it for years and just have never made it a priority,” the country star told Rolling Stone Country.
Pickler’s bubbly personality and southern charm will be displayed throughout the show and fans can look forward to lots of comedic moments thrown into her day to day life.
“We laugh so much,” Pickler says. “We have Redneck Supper Club dinner parties at our house and grill out. I was a huge fan of Lucille Ball and her funny shenanigans with Ethel that poor Ricky would have to get her out of. We want to play off that type of comedy — lighthearted but natural situations that I get into — and marry that with a Friends-type feel.”
Pickler admits to having slight anxiety about doing a reality show, but she felt like this show was the right choice for her life direction and she's excited to let fans in on her day to day life.
MULTI-PLATINUM singer/ songwriter Kip Moore is heading into rehearsals for his 2015 WILD ONES TOUR, following a raucous summer out on the road as part of the stacked 2015 SOUNDS OF SUMMER tour lineup with Dierks Bentley, playing venues across the country as well as some of the biggest festivals this year. Rolling Stone commended that “Kip Moore stuck to what he what he does best, performing his brand of U2-meets-Bob Seger raspy country-rock,” while Village Voice remarked “[Moore] is the definition of laid-back country cool... tracks from Wild Ones went over beautifully with the crowd.”
Following curtain call on his summer gig with Bentley, Moore changed gears and headed to New York City yesterday (9/21) to tape an intimate stripped-down performance as part of Front and Center’s CMA Songwriters Series, set to air in early 2016 on Public Televison. Moore was joined on stage by renowned songwriters Brett James and Jaren Johnston, where their set included tracks taken from Moore’s new album WILD ONES. Moore’s much anticipated sophomore album continues to garner critical praise with The Guardian recently declaring WILD ONES as “an impressively singular release from Music Row...unlike anything else in country music at the moment, and it pulses with energy and strong rock melodies.”
A performer that Washington Post declares “is a natural when he’s on stage,” Moore is now gearing up to kick off his headlining 2015 WILD ONES on 10/8. Fans will have the opportunity to experience WILD ONES, that Taste of Country deems is “tailored for his live show and the thousands of die-hard fans that pack theaters several times each week to see him,” firsthand.
