Miranda Lambert's 7th Annual Cause for the Paws Event Rai...

Friday, 2:00 PM

Image Courtesy Becky Fluke/SonyMusicMiranda Lambert's 7th Annual Cause for the Paws event raised more than $600,000 to help rescue dogs in need of forever homes. The event took place in Las Vegas in conjunction with Miranda's performance at the Route 91 Harvest Festival earlier this month. A VIP experience complete with a live and silent auction helped to boost proceeds.

Miranda says, "Getting to do what I love and help the cause that’s closest to my heart, and do it in Vegas; it doesn’t get any better.  With the money raised, I am looking forward to seeing lots of dogs find loving forever homes through adoption.”

The money raised will benefit Miranda's Mutt Nation Foundation and their ongoing projects, including the building of the Redemption Ranch, a new owned-and-operated shelter in Miranda's hometown of Tishomingo, OK opening November 22.

Reba Explains How Little Big Town's New Album, "Pain Kill...

Friday, 10:00 AM

Image Courtesy Starstruck EntertainmentReba is working with two of her closest friends, Tony Brown and James Stroud, to produce her upcoming studio album, but a new release from one of country's hottest acts has her thinking it's time to rock the boat and work with totally different people on future projects.

Reba says, "I did hear the new Little Big Town album. Yes.  So, yeah, now I’m considering it, yeah. I would love to kinda see what somebody else could do with me."

Little Big Town's just-released album, Pain Killer, really pushes the envelope when it comes to loud guitars and gritty song lyrics. Since Reba hasn't released an album since 2010, she wanted to work with familiar people on her next album.

Reba says, "It's comfortable, and it may be time for me to step out of comfort and go try some new stuff."

Look for Reba's new album to come out next year.

Reba's Father, Clark McEntire, Passes Away

Friday, 9:55 AM

Image Courtesy CMACondolences to Reba on the passing of her father, Clark McEntire. He died Thursday night in Coalgate, OK.

Reba posted the news on her Facebook page saying, "He had been in the nursing home for a while and we’re very thankful he is not suffering anymore. He was a born and bred cowboy through and through. He had been sick for 5 years. It makes total sense to me, he always told us kids never to run your horse to the barn. He was just taking his time to go on home."

Clark McEntire was born in Oklahoma on November 30, 1927 and went on to win the Rodeo World Championships in 1957, 1958 and 1961. He was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1979. He went on to play a major role in encouraging Reba to pursue a singing career when he told her she should sing the national anthem at the 1974 National Finals Rodeo. It was at that performance that recording artist Red Steagall discovered Reba.
