Carrie Underwood lights up the CMA Festival line up... Kip Moore to rev up the crowd at the NASCAR Coke Zero 400... and Jake Owen releases his first single off his upcoming album.
FOX News Radio Entertainment Correspondent, Michelle Pollino has the scoop on the Country music stars making headlines this week:
I'm Michelle Pollino.
It's hard to believe it's been a decade since she sang her heart out and won American Idol, but Carrie Underwood is celebrating the event by performing during the nightly concerts at the CMA Festival in Nashville. This comes on the heels of her Grand Ole Opry performance a week earlier. It was in May of 2005 that she won Idol and followed that by playing her inaugural CMA Fest less than a month later.
Kip Moore will get audiences fired up by performing an hour-long pre-race concert before the 57th annual Coke Zero 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Daytona International Speedway. This summer, Moore joins Dierks Bentley's 2015 Sounds of Summer Tour.
It's not about the beach, but it definitely sounds like a summer fun song. "Real Life" is the latest from Jake Owen. The song is this first single off of Owen's upcoming new album. He's also out on tour this summer, spending it with country superstar Kenny Chesney, on Chesney's The Big Revival Tour.
That's FOX Country, on FOX News Radio.
