Jason Aldean says you won't see his daughters at his concerts anytime soon. Their dad's fame and all of the attention he gets is relatively new to them and it can be a bit intimidating, says Jason. At last year's CMA Music Festival when Jason and his family arrived the fan frenzy spooked his daughters. "As soon as we pulled up in the parking lot, people started coming from everywhere, crowding around our car and trying to get autographs," says Jason. It's exciting for them but it's also a little scary." To minimize the stress on his daughters, Jason says they generally only accompany him when he's in or near Nashville, so he can get them home quickly if needed.
Sugarland is trying to find the victims and relatives of those who died in the Indiana State Fair tragedy. The duo has posted an appeal on their website asking for help to contactthose who were injured and the families of those killed in the stage collapse last Saturday. Sugarland is making plans to hold a private memorial for the victims in Indiana as they move on with their tour. The duo played their first show since the collapse last week in New Mexico. Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush explained their decision to return to work less than a week after the incident, saying they were deeply affected by the horrific scene as well, and hope that by being together and working together they'll be able to help each other through their own healing process.
Blake Shelton is sharing some of the things he likes most about Miranda Lambert in the new Cosmopolitan Magazine. Blake was asked what makes a guy think a girl is really a keeper, and the first sign, according to Blake, is they make a guy want to be their best friend. Says Blake, "As a man, you want a woman who makes you want to be buddies with her as much as you want to be romantic with her because you like her that much." Blake also thinks a woman who sticks to her guns is sexy. He says, "What I love about my wife is that she knows what she likes, and she never makes apologies for it." He called that kind of confidence very attractive." For more of Blake's dating advice, pick up the September issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale now.
Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley are Pistol Annies, and their debut album comes out Tuesday (August 23rd.) The trio’s 10-song debut album, Hell on Heels, started one night when Miranda and her best friends and writing partners were just hanging out at Miranda’s house and it now stands to become one of this summer’s top, not-to-be-missed, way-cool album experiences. Since Blake was also there at the time they made him a Pistol Andy because he co-wrote the track “Family Feud” with the trio.
Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride and Darius Rucker will be a part of the 2011 MDA Labor Day Telethon. They won't be live on the telethon. All three taped their performances at the Grand Ole Opry in June. There are a couple of big changes coming to the MDA telethon this year. First, Jerry Lewis was "fired" as the host (although rumors have been out in the past couple of days that he may be reinstated) and the telethon will be drastically shorter. It will be a 6 hour event that will air from 6pm to midnight on Sunday September 4th, over the Labor Day weekend.
