In Today's Nashville Stew Report, Brad Paisley reveals the first song he ever sang and more details about the new album; some ironic observations by John Rich; Zac Brown stays at the top; plus Chris Young The Judds latest projects
Brad Paisley has released more info about his brand-new album, ‘This is Country Music,’ due out on May 24. In an interview for Billboard Magazine, Brad reveals that the album will include a recording of the first song he ever sang at age 9, called “Life’s A Railway To Heaven.” The updated version is sung with Sheryl Crow and Marty Stuart on backup. There are other major collaborations on the album, such as ‘Remind Me,’ featuring Carrie Underwood; ‘Don’t Drink the Water,’ featuring Blake Shelton; ‘Love Her Like She’s Leaving,’ featuring Don Henley; and ‘Eastwood’ featuring Clint Eastwood on whistling.
John Rich was on the Brian & Kellie morning show Monday talking about his time on Celebrity Apprentice. According to John it's pretty ironic that he is considered the normal one on the cast this season. He calls his fellow contestant Gary Busey "nuts" and says Donald Trump will be singling Gary out this next Sunday night. As far as the antics of the others on the men's team, John says he isn't interested in getting involved in the behaviors others are exhibiting in and out of the boardroom, saying he is really only interested in raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and nothing more. You can hear the entire interview here.
Zac Brown may just have to treat himself to a new stocking cap to celebrate this one. His current single, Colder Weather, is #1 for another week. This is the second consecutive week the Georgia-based band has locked up the top of the chart with their third single from their ‘You Get What You Give’ album.
CHRIS YOUNG is preparing to make his second visit to entertain U.S. TROOPS overseas. Chris is part of the “STARS FOR STRIPES,” tour that sends country artists over to Iraq and Kuwait. Chris is calling his leg of the tour, the “PIECE OF HOME,” tour , performing to service men and women from APRIL 13th through APRIL 21st. Chris will not only perform full shows on major bases, he also plans to venture out and perform in various remote FOB’s (FORWARD OPERATING BASES), in more remote locations, where troops seldom see entertainment.
The Judds reality series kicked off over the weekend on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The duo showed fans just how difficult it was to get back on their tour buses and embark on their final tour together last year. The reality series shows both Wynonna and Naomi working out differences with the help of a life coach traveling with them. There are some very funny moments, mostly thanks to Naomi, who seems just a little less uptight about the whole thing than Wynonna. The next new episode of “THE JUDDS” airs on OWN, Sunday night APRIL 17th. Reruns of this past weekend’s two episode debut can be seen again on OWN this Friday.
