Tim McGraw Opens up about his daughter's debut  2014-09-20

A while back a video appeared from the progeny of Tim McGraw & Faith Hill. Audrey, their 12-year-old daughter, performed an acoustic set before one of her dad's shows in Texas.  

Above Yahoo Music asked Tim McGraw during his promo for the latest album Sundown Heaven Town, about his youngest daughter's debut.

"Audrey's probably the one who really takes singing the most serious and really wants to be a singer," he related. "[When she] asked if she could come to my pre-show and sing, I was shocked. She'd never done anything outside of her comfort zone like that. And of course I'd let her do that. [But] we're very private too, so we've always protected our kids and tried to keep them out of photographs and all kind of things like that."

"So it took a minute to adjust to, it but I thought at the end of the day, if that's what she wants to do and she really wants to do it, I don't want to stop her from doing it," McGraw says.

Keith Urban releases teaser & to debut new music video  2014-09-22
Four-time CMA nominee Keith Urban, will debut the new video for his latest single “Somewhere In My Car” this coming Thursday, September 25th exclusively at www.people.com/keithurban. The 9:00AM EST debut, followed by its posting on VEVO, will be preceded by the September 24th exclusive premiere of the behind the scenes making of the video on Entertainment Tonight at 7:30 p.m. on CBS in New York City and Los Angeles (check local listings elsewhere) and at www.etonline.com. Go to http://smarturl.it/simcteaser to view the 15-second teaser for “Somewhere In My Car” on Instagram.

The video, directed by John Urbano, who also directed Urban’s last video for the platinum-selling single “Cop Car”, is being touted as Urban’s most risqué to date, a provocative must-see. Shot in Cincinnati during his recently completed “Raise ‘Em Up” Summer Tour, the video features Urban ‘firing’ through the song’s powerful guitar riffs and solos, as well as the acting debuts of models Jehane Paris from Miami and Rodrigo Calazans, originally from Brazil.

“The story (of “Somewhere In My Car”) is what I would call melancholy,” said Urban. So for me, the video had to be centered around the present and the past, but focused on the intoxicating emotion of ‘those nights’. John (Urbano) captured it brilliantly.”

“When Keith asked me to direct the video my head started swimming with ideas because the song is so cinematic. I wanted to make a music video where the imagery and song writing felt like they were created at the same time. From the beginning we both wanted this video to be hot with the concept being about how this guy goes mildly crazy thinking about his past relationship. In his mind he’s ‘somewhere in his car’, where he’s having multiple flashbacks that build emotionally with each chorus.”

Earlier this month Urban received FOUR CMA nominations including Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of The Year, Album of The Year, for his record-breaking, chart-topping album FUSE and Musical Event of The Year for his duet with Miranda Lambert for “We Were Us”. Urban’s year has also been highlighted by:

· The sales of two platinum selling singles (“We Were Us” and “Cop Car”)

· Collaborations with John Mayer, Eric Church, Steven Tyler, Lambert and more.

· The headlining of the first ever U.S. iTunes Festival

· A record breaking guitar line sold through HSN

· His 5th Annual All For The Hall concert (which has raised $2.5 million to date)

· Two major International Tours

· His collaboration with Wenner Media for the launch of Rolling Stone Country

· His renewal as the only Country artist to ever judge American Idol (3rd Season)

Trisha Yearwood to release her next studio album  2014-09-23
Grammy, CMA and ACM Award-winning vocalist Trisha Yearwood has announced that her 12th studio album, PrizeFighter: Hit after Hit, will be available on November 17th. Available for pre-order now on GhostTunes (http://smarturl.it/trishaghosttunes), Yearwood’s new album will feature the first new material from the powerhouse vocalist in seven years, including her new single “PrizeFighter.” In addition to six new songs, the album will feature ten hits, including her #1 hits “She’s in Love With the Boy,” “XXX’s and OOO’s,” and “How Do I Live.”

After the release of her multiplatinum debut album in 1991, Trisha became one of the highest-selling female artists in Country music history. In creating the new album, Trisha offered insight into the recording process, how she chose just ten songs from her impressive career list of nine #1’s and twenty Top Ten hits, and what it was like to work with Kelly Clarkson:

“This album was about bringing together the songs that show what I’m all about. These are the classic songs people fell in love with and the new songs that show “what’s next.” When you come to the shows, it’s a mix of favorites with a few new ones that people are coming to hear and sing along with.”

Of working with Kelly Clarkson on “PrizeFighter” Trisha added, “She is the real deal. ‘PrizeFighter’ was a strong song, and I was proud of the vocal, but when she came in and sang on it, it just took it to another level. She elevated it.”

Digitally, PrizeFighter will only be available on GhostTunes, a full-service online music platform. It is available now for pre-order here: http://smarturl.it/trishaghosttunes. Fans that order now will get instant grat tracks of Trisha’s current single “PrizeFighter” as well as “She’s In Love With the Boy” and “How Do I Live.” Trisha is currently on the Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood, which will return to Atlanta next weekend.
