Is Tim McGraw Breaking Up the Dancehall Doctors? Tim wrote on his Facebook page about "recent changes" in his backup band. It's pretty clearly that one, or several members, are history. He wrote: "As some of you might know, there have been some recent changes in my band. Change can be hard, and it's not something you come to lightly. I couldn't be more proud of the music we've created together over the years, and I'll treasure the memories. I know you will join me in wishing everyone only the best in their future endeavors." Nothing official out of Tim's spokesperson. We expect more clarification this week.
Kenny Chesney continues to dominate, as his latest album 'Hemingway's Whiskey' has been certified platinum by the RIAA, commemorating one million copies sold. This is the country superstar's 10th album to go platinum. To boot, his single 'You and Tequila' featuring Grace Potter was certified gold for 500,000 digital downloads.
Apparently Toby Keith didn't want to record his song "Made In America." Toby says he wrote the song a year and a half ago but said that he wanted to put it on the back burner and not include it on his new album he was afraid he would be accused of only recording too many songs about America, "I've got 'Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue', 'American Soldier' . . . American Ride' . . . a lot of America songs. If I did 'em all, that's all I'd record." He caved to pressure from his team, though. He says, "I was in the booth singing the scratch vocal, and everyone was going, 'God, what a smash. That is awesome, pal!' Everyone was high-fiving and carrying on. "I wasn't about to pop everyone's bubble and say, 'I ain't putting it on the album.' So I said, 'Alright, y'all win'."
Jason Aldean can relate to hard times and money problems. “We’re both pretty frugal,” Aldean said in an interview with a Charlotte NC newspaper that during the early days of his marriage, he was always broke. He said he and his wife were just hoping to make enough to pay off their bills. He said that it's still hard to get used to having money and knowing he has a house that is paid for. "Something as simple as that was a huge deal for us. We wanted to be smart.” Jason says without help he would have not made it. “I had a lot of people helping me out,” Aldean says. “People like Rascal Flatts and (Tim) McGraw that gave me a chance to play in front of their fans to help me establish myself. It’s cool to be in a situation where you can do that for another artist.”
