Randy Houser, or his alter ego, joined the lineup of acts performing with Dierks Bentley‘s other musical endeavor, Hot Country Knights, during Country Radio Seminar on Wednesday night at a honky tonk bar in downtown Nashville. In addition to Randy, Dierks recruited such friends as Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley, Miranda Lambert and Kip Moore to join him on stage.
Randy sang Tracy Byrd hits “Watermelon Crawl” and “Too Cold at Home.” Charles Kelley, AKA “Ronnie Buns,” wowed the crowd with “My Maria,” while Miranda Lambert, or “Shelby Shelton,” took on Shania Twain‘s “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under.”
Maddie & Tae‘s new video for their single, “Fly,” features a very personal, private part of Maddie Marlow‘s life, her journal. Maddie has been faithful about recording the duo’s experiences in this journal, and she says that, to her, it’s the most meaningful part of the clip.
“Fly” is the followup to Maddie & Tae’s chart-topping debut single, “Girl In A Country Song.” The duo will celebrate the hit with a Number One party in Nashville this afternoon!
Brett Eldredge has gone skydiving and swam with sharks, but just don’t ask him to get in an elevator. The singer says he already suffers from claustrophobia, and an experience on his radio tour a couple years ago put him over the edge.
Brett is sitting in the Top Five on the country charts with “Mean To Me.”
He will be hitting the road with headliner Darius Rucker in May.

The debut single from Suffer in Peace, “A Guy Walks Into a Bar,” is a Top 20 hit on the charts.

Jason played to a sold-out crowd at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Saturday, February 21st. He surprised the crowd by bringing out Alabama frontman Randy Owen for a duet on “My Home’s In Alabama.”
Rascal Flatts paid a visit to Miramonte Elementary School in Los Angeles on Wednesday to announce a CMA Foundation grant of $150,000 to national not-for-profit Little Kids Rock. The trio spent time with the children at the school and played music, surprising them with a delivery of musical instruments.
Miramonte Elementary School is one of nearly 1,300 public schools across the country supported by Little Kids Rock, which donates teacher training, instruments, and educational resources to public school districts facing budget cuts and elimination of music programs.
Rascal Flatts was in Los Angeles to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night where they sang their new single, “Riot.”
