It's now official. Sugarland will bring their highly-successful 2010 The Incredible Machine Tour to INTRUST Bank Arena Saturday, October 8. The stop on the tour had been listed on the group's webpage and on the tour tracking site www.pollstar.com for months. Ticket prices and the on sale date have not been announced yet. The Incredible Machine Tour was one of Pollstar’s Top 50 North American Tours of 2010 and has been described as “stunning,” “fantastically fun” and “not one to be missed.”
LADY ANTEBELLUM’s hit, “Need You Now,” has become the #1 most downloaded Country song of all time this week, surpassing BIG MACHINE star TAYLOR SWIFT’s “Love Story” to claim the title. The track is from their triple-Platinum album of the same title. The trio will headline the second night of Country Stampede, Friday June 24th in Manhattan Kansas. Ticket info is at KFDI.com.
Country music has a new undisputed #1 song this week with Zac Brown Band’s “Colder Weather.” The song tops both the Billboard Country Chart and the Mediabase Soundscan Country Chart for the week. Thompson Square slid to #2 on both charts with “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” and Darius Rucker is poised to hit #1 with his new song “This” sitting in the #3 slot and moving up pretty quickly.
Ashley Judd is airing her famous family’s dirty laundry and it has her mom and sister, Noami and Wynonna Judd “fighting mad” according to a family insider. In a shocking tell-all memoir, Ashley tells of being left with caregivers who used drugs and of being sexually assaulted by an older man, all while her mother, Naomi, was transforming herself into a country legend. Ashley writes, “ Naomi Judd created an origin myth for the Judds that did not match my reality.” A Judd family insider is quoted as saying, "These ugly family accusations should be discussed in private within the family, not printed and sold to the public to make a quick buck."
Ashley Judd was invited but declined to be a part of a reality series about The Judds that debuts this Sunday night at 8pm on the Oprah Winfrey Network. That, according to a family friend, was the nail in the coffin when it came to reestablishing a relationship with her mother and sister. The insider says that the three have been mostly estranged for years with very little contact. The Judds reality series will follow Naomi and Wynonna on their final concert tour. The teaser video for the show hints that Naomi has been keeping a painful secret from Wynonna that she is finally ready to reveal.
"It's like a drug. I cannot stop!" Josh Kelley says about writing country music. Josh says he wrote his first country song two-and-a-half years ago called 'Gone Like That' and was trying to get Keith Urban to record it. But that didn’t pan out, “I wanted a big cut. I promised my wife [actress Katherine Heigl] I'd buy a beach house ... I gotta make some cash here!" While the song wasn’t cut by Keith, Josh Kelley has included it on his new album “Georgia Clay.” Josh will play a special benefit concert for KFDI and the Kansas Humane Society on April 27th. Ticket info is online at kfdi.com. After our concert, Josh goes back on the road opening for Miranda Lambert and later this year, for Taylor Swift.
Here is the video to Josh's hit song "Georgia Clay."
