Luke Bryan canceled his scheduled appearance at the CMT Artists of the Year after the death of his brother-in-law, Ben Lee Cheshire, who passed away Saturday -- at the age of 46. Cheshire was the husband of Bryan's late sister Kelly, who also died suddenly in 2007 -- at the age of 39. Bryan's only brother was killed in a car accident years earlier.
Carrie Underwood performed in New York's Times Square as part of U2's World AIDS Day awareness event and was joined onstage by U2 guitarist the Edge to sing, "Change" -- before launching into her latest, "Something in the Water."
Pretty Little Liars' Lucy Hale's first album -- Road Between, hit early in 2014. So, it's time for the singer to hit the road for her first headlining tour...a dream come true for the artist. Songwriter Josh Dorr will open. Lucy's single, "Lie a Little Better" is climbing the country charts.
