FOX News Radio Entertainment Correspondent, Michelle Pollino has the scoop on the Country music stars making headlines this week:
I’m Michelle Pollino.
One of the biggest performers on the country music circuit today, Jason Aldean, was shut out of the CMA’s this year. Last week in a Facebook post, his father called the awards a farce. This week, the Georgia native told Rolling Stone Country, he was disappointed, adding he doesn’t think anybody else out there is doing the kind of touring numbers that he’s doing.
Lady Antebellum’s guitarist Dave Haywood and his wife Kelli became new parents to Cash Van Haywood, born on Sunday in Nashville. The baby’s name is based on Kelli’s maiden name — Cashiola and Dave’s fathers’ name, which is Van. The Grammy-winning band’s new album, “747,” comes out on September 30th.
Glen Campbell’s final recording, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” is featured in “I’ll Be Me,” a new documentary about the singers’ struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.
(Urban) “Growing up across the world, Glen Campbell showed me what country music was.”
(Swift) “Glen Campbell has been making music history for decades.”
The film’s out in late October, but the record hits stores September 30th.
