Trace Adkins says he knows how to stimulate the economy. He says, "I think the best way to stimulate the economy is for somebody to go out and buy my CD because I'm gonna take that money and give it to....Dillard's." Trace Adkins shops at Dillards? "I don't go to Dillard's, but everybody, every woman in my life does. If that money comes to me it's gonna go directly back into the economy either at Dillard's or Saks or somewhere like that. You know, I'm just trying to do my part." “I’m Proud To Be Here” Trace’s latest CD came out on Tuesday amidst all of the news about the debt ceiling vote.
Blake Shelton was smiling at us from the cover of this Sunday’s issue of PARADE Magazine. Blake opened up about why he took so long to pop the question to Miranda Lambert. Blake had been married before and says his 2006 divorce was rough on him, “It was the worst experience of my life. Nothing was worth risking that again. I wanted to be really sure this time, and I wanted Miranda to be really sure.” Miranda was quoted in the article saying she knew Blake had reasons for delaying the proposal but decided not to push him to get married again. Miranda tells PARADE. “When I finally told myself I’m just going to love him and see what happens, that’s when he bought the ring.”
Keith Urban will bring the Get Closer tour to Wichita next Tuesday night. Ever wonder what life on the road is like for a country superstar? In a recent interview for The Tennessean, a Nashville newspaper, Keith said he usually finishes playing at 11pm and stays up till around 2am before heading to bed. Then it’s up around 10am for a workout. When he’s not on the road or he makes his frequent visits home to Nashville to see his family, he is up at 6am with his daughters. That turns his body clock around. He says he would rather not miss those morning hours with his girls.

Scotty’s video was shot entirely in Los Angeles, but Scotty says they actually found alittle country spot I the heart of the big city in an area called Angels Point. “We found this park that had a little country feel to it and it all worked out,” he says. “If I hadn’t told you that, you would think we would have shot that in North Carolina. The music video has a summertime barbecue feel, like a July Fourth party with fireworks and hot dogs and families.”
