Flying Swift Shot Down

Posted on 25 December 2009 by Bill West

Swift Rumor Won't Fly

Swift Rumor Won't Fly

Taylor Swift is so hot right now any sort of rumor can spread like wildfire. Latest being that she was in talks to play the lead in a new film version of “SuperGirl.”

Apparently there was a previous “SuperGirl” film that flopped in the early 80′s from the makers of the Christopher Reeve “Superman” movies.

The Swift rumor not only sent the Country Music world buzzing… but also the Taylor tween fans… and the SUPER HERO Fanboys. Reading their comments they seem to want a more buff girl (think she could get some workout tips from her werewolf boyfriend)?

Seems the whole argument is all for not… Our sources say they haven’t heard anything… and this source says DC insiders say it aint so.     But the buzz factor – along with the new extended “Valentines Day” trailer featuring Swift – show us there is definitely a future in film is she wants it.     More likely scenario:   a musical or romance chick flick.   A big screen musical could also help drive radio play despite programmers that may question her level of overexposure.

Prediction: she will land a lead before 2010 year end.    She’s bigger than Country or Pop radio.

Is Carrie Underwood Engaged?

Posted on 21 December 2009 by editor

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher

Look what the Ottawa Sun says:

Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood are engaged to be married, a source has confirmed this morning.

The blogosphere has been alive and buzzing since Sunday with rumours the celebrity couple have become engaged. The rumours began spreading after a friend of Underwood’s family congratulated the former American Idol and the Senators centre on their upcoming marriage on his Twitter page last night.

This morning, a source close to the couple confirmed to the Ottawa Sun that Fisher popped the question and Underwood has accepted the proposal.

Underwood, who makes her home in Nashville, was in Ottawa through the weekend and was on hand for the club’s 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild Saturday at Scotiabank Place. It’s not known if she will also be at tonight’s game against the Boston Bruins.

Neither Underwood nor Fisher has made any public confirmation as yet.

The couple has been dating for approximately a year. They have kept their relationship largely out of the media — quite an accomplishment for one of Nashville’s hottest stars and one of the NHL’s most eligible bachelors — but had recently begun speaking in public about their love affair.

Chesney Year In Rewind 2009

Posted on 17 December 2009 by editor


Chesney's Second Greatest Hits CD Is a best seller

Chesney's Second Greatest Hits CD Is a best seller

When Kenny Chesney wrapped his Sun City Carnival Tour in September, he had played 15 major NFL stadiums – including a 5 minute sell-out in Boston, a 4th straight Philly sell-out, a seats-added sell-out in Detroit and a rained-out/made up play in Dallas – and once again sold in excess of 1.1 million tickets. It was a whirlwind year for a high energy artist, marking eight straight years of selling over a million tickets and soundtracking life for people between the coasts.

And people respond year after year, because they know Kenny Chesney knows: how they feel, who they are and the way their lives really look. With each of his solo projects since 2002′s No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems yielding several #1s and all being multi- or close to multiplatinum – and his introspective songwriter projects Be As You Are: Songs From An Old Blue Chair and Lucky Old Sun hovering at the million copy mark – it’s amazing to see Chesney’s Greatest Hits, Vol. II hitting gold for sales of over 500,000. The Hits package also includes his recent # 1 single, “Out Last Night,” and the Dave Matthews duet, “I’m Alive.”

“I guess we do greatest hits projects so people can have all the hits in one place,” Chesney says with a laugh. “Because between the radio and the albums sold, I know the fans know these songs! It’s nice to have it all in one place… and to have the chance to take the Dave Matthews song (“I’m Alive” from Lucky Old Sun) and give it a proper commercial home, because that’s just magic, and it gave people the chance to hear it on the radio.

“That first greatest hits, it kept selling and selling and is still selling, so the thing, about these kinda records that I’ve learned is you don’t measure their success in the first year, you measure how long people keep buying it! I hope they’re gonna keep buying this one for a long, long time ’cause I want this music to remind them of all the great things they’ve lived with us.”

To that end, Rolling Stone finds Chesney on their – as Bob Dylan would say – “Back Pages” on the charts they’ve published to recognize the biggest successes of the past decade. Though their rankings are measured in dollars – always putting Chesney with his fan-friendly prices at a significant disadvantage – the singer/songwriter from Luttrell, Tennessee finds himself as the #3 biggest touring act of the decade behind Dave Matthews and Celine Dion — and ahead of the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Madonna and more.

“These songs work best when we sing them with people,” Chesney says of the honor. “So I like to get out there and sing ‘em for and with my friends… and that’s meant a lot of miles, a lot of days gone and a whole lotta love.

“It’s funny, though, how all these magazines measure in money… rather than the people who come and buy the tickets, cause to me, that’s the only thing that matters! Those fans who show up every night, who stand there in the sun, occasionally the rain and always with the biggest smiles on their faces… To me, it’s not about where I rank, but knowing the chunks of their lives those fans have shared with me. Now that’s what this whole crazy rides about!”

    Easton Corbin Album

    Posted on 06 December 2009 by Bill West


    Easton Corbin's New Album

    Easton Corbin's New Album

    You’re going to start hearing a new song on the radio that sounds a lot like a new George Strait tune called “A Little More Country Than That.” It’s slowly creeping into the mainstream playlists and it should keep building through the holidays to be a January hit. But it’s NOT George Strait. Instead, it’s another young gun out of Mercury Records Nashville named Easton Corbin.

    Update:  THE OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE HAS BEEN UPPED TO MARCH 2ND. Right around the time the label will be pushing for number one oh his first single.

    Mercury Records is also the home of a similar sounding Billy Currington and Sugarland.
