Tyler Hubbard: This Was How He Rolled

For Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard, one of the best Christmas gifts his dad ever gave him was the art of keeping expectations low. Seriously. That’s a real gift. Hubbard’s father Roy, who died in February 2007, used to tell him not to expect much for Christmas. “Dad would always act like, ‘You’re not gonna... Read more »

The Best and Worst of Reba’s Holidays

When Reba McEntire reflects — on Christmas, New Year’s Eve or anything else, for that matter — I listen. So during a recent radio interview, when she talked about the best parts and then some of the not-so-great parts of the upcoming holiday season, I took notes. The Good: “When I was growing up in...

Do Celebrities Wait in Concert Lines Like the Rest of Us?

When I see a celebrity at a concert, I always wonder the same things: How’d they get their tickets? Did they wait in front of their computer until the very second they went on sale and then wait in that torturous virtual queue? Or did they call someone … who called someone who called someone?...

Will Cole Swindell Sing About Farmers, Preachers and Teachers?

“Three Wooden Crosses,” the Randy Travis hit from 2002, is kind of my benchmark for a story song. Not just because there’s a beginning, a middle and an end, but because there’s a twist.

Beyond the Basics at American Country Countdown Awards

It took me a while to figure out what was happening Monday night (Dec. 15) on the American Country Countdown Awards. Every time someone won, they were already onstage. What a cool coincidence, right? But what that meant was that no one was apparently caught off guard in one of those I-really-didn’t-think-I’d-win moments. The winners... Read more »


Nashville‘s Villain May Not Be All Bad

There is no Nashville this week. I mean, there’s Nashville. But there’s no Nashville, the TV series.. So to bide some time, let’s think about how far Jeff Fordham has come in the season and a half that we’ve known him. I think his first episode was back in October 2013, during season two. That...
