Country Fans Rush to Pick Up Miranda Lambert's Latest "Vice"

Tuesday, 6:00 PM

Image credit: Becky FlukeThanks to Miranda Lambert, lots of country fans are picking up a new “Vice.” Seven days after its release, Miranda’s new single sits at number one on Billboard’s Digital Country Songs tally, with 65,000 people downloading the tune in the three-and-a-half days before the chart closed for the week.

That’s enough to instantly make “Vice” a top-20 hit on the traditional airplay charts. It currently sits at number 18, making it the fastest-rising song of Miranda’s career. Previously, 2014’s ACM-and-CMA-winning Song of the Year “Automatic” held that record.

Big #1 Record: Steven Tyler Tops Country Chart with Debut...

Tuesday, 2:13 PM

Dot RecordsAerosmith frontman Steven Tyler's foray into country music has gotten off to a great start, as his twangy debut solo record, We're All Somebody from Somewhere, has bowed at #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. According to Nielsen Music, the album sold 17,000 copies during its first week of release, which also was good enough for a #19 debut on the Billboard 200 chart.

Tyler recorded We're All Somebody from Somewhere in Nashville, co-produced the album, and co-wrote most of the songs with various collaborators. Three singles have been released from the album so far -- "Love Is Your Name," "Red, White & You," and the title track.

In early July, the 68-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer launched a North American solo tour in support of the album called the …Out on the Limb trek, which is mapped out through a September 13 show in Toronto.

After his solo tour winds down, Tyler will rejoin Aerosmith for a series of concerts, including a September 17 appearance at the Kaaboo Festival in Del Mar, California, and a run of fall Latin American dates.

Chris Janson Joins Brad Paisley in His Efforts to Help Fl...

Tuesday, 2:00 PM

Warner Music NashvilleAt his concert last weekend at Peck Fest in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, Chris Janson decided to donate all the profits from the sale of his merchandise to help the flood-ravaged state.

“It’s the right thing to do,” the “Holdin’ Her” hitmaker said. “I’ve played many nights here in West Virginia and the people have always treated me and my family so nice. It’s like a second home to me.”

Chris isn’t the only country star who’s pitched in to help after the state was hit hard by flooding about a month ago. Both Billy Ray Cyrus and Brad Paisley participated in a telethon to raise money, and at last check, Brad was closing in on $700,000 of his $1 million goal to help his home state through his GoFundMe account.

Parmalee Brings the Opry to NYC: Even in Manhattan, "Thes...

Tuesday, 10:00 AM

BBR Music Group With signature hits like “Carolina,” “Close Your Eyes” and “Already Callin’ You Mine,” the guys in Parmalee aren’t exactly newcomers anymore. But lead singer Matt Thomas admits there are some things that will always give him a case of the butterflies.

“I mean the Opry is the only show we will probably always be nervous before we get on stage… It's so cool and so surreal,” he says, having played the historic venue not too long ago.

Tonight, Parmalee has the honor of kicking off the Opry’s Circle in the City concert series in New York’s Bryant Park. Even in Manhattan, Matt and bass player Barry Knox agree -- country fans all over America have a lot in common.

“I think the fans are the same,” Matt reflects. “There are country music fans walking all through these streets."

“It is amazing to go around the country,” Barry interjects, “and…  you have a certain outlook on a city… and all these country people just show up! It's crazy. It's awesome!”  

You can bet Parmalee’s emotional new single “Roots” will be part of their Tuesday-night set. If you’re not lucky enough to be in the Big Apple for the show, you can watch it at 8:30 p.m. ET on the Opry’s Facebook page.
