Garth Brooks was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on February 7, 1962. He signed with Capitol Records and released his self-titled first album in 1989. Ok that's a start but if you got all your alerts today with other sites wishing him Happy Birthday, read all the biography's on Garth you well know his successful history. I can write what other's have, tell you about all his records, his accomplishments and so forth but that is not what his birthday is for me. When I heard Garth's first self-titled album in 1989 I knew this would be a country "love affair"... Read more

The Country Throwdown Tour is gearing up for another run in 2012. Opening day will be held May 18th at Jones Park in Gulfport, MS.

He recorded his debut album while starring in the American Idols Live! Tour, which Pollstar ranked as one of the nation’s Top 15... Read more

Apparently Rascal Flatts are a little tired of all these darn Australians - we're looking at you Keith Urban - and Canadians coming over here and touring their little foreign hearts out because the boys have decided to launch the very non-foreign-sounding The American Band Tour brought to you by equally home-grown-sounding Farmers Insurance. The tour will begin this summer and will feature opening acts Little Big Town, Eli Young Band, and Edens Edge. Check out the press release below for more info and tour dates.... As one of the hottest touring acts in any genre, Country music supergroup Rascal... Read more

Remember when you had to actually wait for the Super Bowl to be able to watch the funny videos? Well wake up, people, it's 2012 and thanks to the power of YouTube, you don't have to sit through a boring old football game just to catch all the fun.

Sigh. Casey James has given the world its first glimpse of his new album, Casey James, (via USA Today) which will hit stores March 20th. Let's just say that it's a good thing Casey's one hot dude because his album cover is a big ol' dud. Oh well, let's hope they spent the money they saved on cover art and poured it all into making one awesome album! Read more
