Luke Bryan's Farm Tour

Luke will bring his fourth-annual “Farm Tour” 2012 through several southern states, including his home state of Georgia, performing eight concerts in the month of October. 

The shows will open with a couple of his best buddies the “Peach Pickers,” Dallas Davidson and Rhett Akins, as well as singer/songwriters Chancie Neal and Cole Swindell.

Luke says:  "The Farm Tour is NOT cancelled. It has come to our attention that there have been fake Luke Bryan Facebook profiles and Farm Tour pages advertising that the Farm Tour has been cancelled, and/or that Jason Aldean will be joining Luke on some Farm Tour dates. These rumors are false."

Carrie Underwood Loves Her Fans

kiss CARRIE UNDERWOOD made the night -- and maybe life -- of a 12-year-old fan at a LOUISVILLE concert. 

The young boy, CHASE, held a sign that read "Will you be my first kiss?" and was invited onstage for the big moment, which UNDERWOOD noted would no doubt be recorded and posted to YOUTUBE -- and it was.  

"So how are we going to do this?" UNDERWOOD asked. But first warned the fan that her hockey-playing husband MIKE FISHER was in the house and "might be looking for ya later."

Not shy, CHASE answered "Lip to lip."

Following the lip lock, UNDERWOOD promised that that was "the only time that's gonna happen."

Luck Or Something Like It

Grammy Award-winning music legend Kenny Rogers will embark on a busy fall season with the release of his autobiography, LUCK OR SOMETHING LIKE IT, on October 2nd, 2012.

For more than half a century, Rogers has been a fixture on the international music scene, recording some of the most revered music around the world.  Now for the first time, this entertainment icon details his fascinating lifelong journey and incredible rise to fame with his memoir, LUCK OR SOMETHING LIKE IT (William Morrow; Hardcover; $27.99).  Exploring the struggles of his long road, his story begins simply:  growing up in Depression-era Texas, living in the projects, surviving in poverty, and listening to his mother, who always had just the right piece of wisdom.  Rogers recounts his early years and musical career, sharing stories about the friendships that have meant the most to him, from Dottie West to Lionel Richie to Dolly Parton, and how through it all, he continues to make music with the passion that has defined him from the start.

During release week, Rogers will appear on Good Morning America, The View, The Colbert Report, CBS This Morning, Piers Morgan Tonight, Anderson Live, Fox News, Canada AM and others, in addition to NPR’s Morning Edition, The Diane Rehm Show, The Leonard Lopate Show, SiriusXM and numerous syndicated radio interviews.  Rogers will also appear on a seven-city book tour beginning on October 2nd.  Full details are listed below on where he’ll be appearing and meeting his fans in person.

Kenny Rogers, a beloved, universally known icon of American entertainment, has thrived as a groundbreaking recording artist and consummate showman for more than half a century with his unique storytelling ability and soulful voice.  He has recorded more than 65 albums which have sold more than 120 million units worldwide, ranking him #8 on the R.I.A.A.’s list of Top Selling Male Artists of all time, and has played to millions of fans around the world.  Against all odds, Rogers has charted a record within each of the last seven decades.  A three-time Grammy winner, he is the singer of 24 #1 songs and has received countless honors for his music and charity work, including eighteen American Music Awards, eleven People’s Choice Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards, five Country Music Association Awards and the Horatio Alger Award.  Rogers’ critically acclaimed album, The Love of God, was released in 2011 and became his 21st Top 10 Country album.  He is currently working on a new studio album for Warner Bros. Records with producer Dann Huff.

Taylor Swift Feels "Red"

When she chose Red as the title of her new album she says it was inspired by all of the emotions that went into the songs she wrote for the project.
“I wrote a song called, "Red,‟ thinking about what that means to me, and all the different emotions that are written about on this album. They're all pretty much about the kind of tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi toxic relationships that I've experienced in the last two years. All those emotions spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that; in my mind all of those emotions are red. There's nothing in between, there's nothing Beige about any those feelings.  So, I called the record, Red.”  

Taylor says, “It was crazy because it was really simple.”  Red, featuring her #1 hit song, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” will be available October 22nd.

Be listening to country radio to preview a new song a week from it, starting today.  The songs will also be introduced by Swift on Monday of each week by way of ABC's Good Morning America and available for purchase exclusively on iTunes that night at 12:01 a.m. ET.
