Josh Turner is cheering on his soundalike 'American Idol' contestant Scotty McCreery. Scotty seemed stuck on Josh’s hit song 'Your Man' during the audition process. Scotty does remind Josh of himself, but not for the reason you might think. "Back when I was that age, I wanted to sing nothing but Randy Travis songs. But it took that for me to figure out who I was," Josh says. "I think he's farther along at that age than I was."The 33-year old has nothing but praise for the aspiring country star. "Scotty seems to be a smart guy, and he's got his head on straight," he adds, "and he seems like he's got a great heart."
Carrie Underwood will get to see how Ottawa Canada really feels about her this summer. After the news that her husband, professional hockey player Mike Fisher, would be traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators, many in the Canadian town blamed Carrie. But now, the country superstar is returning to the Canadian capital to headline a star-packed music festival. She will star in the Ottawa Capital Hoedown, August 11 - 13, a three day music festival that will also star Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert, Sara Evans, Billy Currington, Easton Corbin and Justin Moore.
Many country stars are moving to new record labels these days. The latest is Montgomery Gentry, who have signed with Average Joe's Entertainment after leaving Columbia Records after 11 years. "We couldn't be happier," Eddie Montgomery says. Troy Gentry adds, "We love the team they have in place and the passion and excitement that they bring." A new Montgomery Gentry single is expected by summer time.
While Ronnie Dunn’s Bleed Red is making an impact on country radio, his former singing partner, Kix Brooks, is taking a break from music and trying his hand in movies. Kix has just finished playing a small role in the upcoming movie, 'Thriftstore Cowboy.' But now he is preparing to start filming another movie in which he plays the leading man. Kix says he will play a cop who ends up in jail in a movie called 'The Last Ride.’ "I guess I didn't screw ['Thriftstore Cowboy'] up too bad or they wouldn't have offered me the role in 'The Last Ride," he quips.
Set your DVR for this Saturday night if you aren’t going to be home. Because you won’t want to miss the hour long Rascal Flatts special on ABC. Rascal Flatts have added extra star power to their 'Nothing Like This’ TV Special with an appearance by Justin Bieber.
The concert special will feature a never-before-seen clip of the Flatts' collaboration with Justin on the new song, 'That Should Be Me.' Incidentally, it was during the taping of the video that Gary LeVox famously cut off a lock of Justin's hair to donate to charity. The bidding war earned more than $40,000 on eBay, with the money going to the animal rescue foundation The Gentle Barn. The show airs Saturday night, March 12 at 7:00 PM CT on ABC.
