Toby Keith is being accused of refusing to sign a guitar to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. His road manager is calling the accusation "just stupid." The story first came out last week that Toby wouldn't sign the guitar backstage at a concert in Nebraska after it was auctioned off as part of a fundraiser. Supposedly, Toby's management knew about the auction, but when the guitar was presented to the star he refused to autograph it. His road manager said they had no such request. "For them to think that Toby would disregard a great charity like St. Jude when he has his own foundation that supports and has the same goals is just stupid."

One million. That is how many tickets the ‘Brothers of the Sun’ Tour, with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, has officially sold. The tour is the highest-grossing of 2012 so far. “I’m so grateful to all of the fans that have made this tour such an amazing success and a nonstop party night after night,” Chesney said. “Being out on the road with Tim has been incredible and we still have a lot of songs left to sing this summer.”
Garth Brooks has been added to the line-up for a televsion special saluting teachers. "Teachers Rock" will air on CBS next Friday, August 17th. Carrie Underwood and (ironically) Dierks Bentley are the other country stars performing to honor America’s teachers. Hmmm....Dierks will be in Wichita at Hartman Arena that night, so we know the special was taped in advance. Teachers Rock airs Friday, August 17 at 7 central on CBS.
The third-season premiere of "The Voice" is only a few weeks away, and the show is going to be making some changes this time. While the four coaches -- including Blake Shelton, will each return to the famous red swivel seats, they will have fewer people to keep track of. The producers believe there were too many contestants and it was hard to fall in love with any of them. That may be why the winners of the first two seasons have not transformed their appearance on the show into success off the show, unlike the show's talent-search competitor, "American Idol." Season three of "The Voice" premieres Monday, Sept. 10, at 8:00 PM ET on NBC.
