The good-time country boys have revealed that they’ll be performing a free show in downtown Nashville to commemorate the unveiling of the Tennessee Titans’ new uniforms, the team’s first new look in almost 20 years.

The free event is set for 7 p.m. on April 4 at Broadway and First Avenue, which is just a hop, skip and a jump from Florida Georgia Line's restaurant, FGL House (via Tennessean).

While the duo was initially asked to drop by for a brief acoustic performance, the band came up with a different plan.

"We were like, 'If we're going to play Nashville, we need to do it right. Let's rock this thing,’" Brian Kelley told the newspaper. "We're just jacked. Nashville is a bull’s-eye for everyone to come to right now. Anytime we can represent the city and the Titans, we're stepping our game up. We're just thankful."

FGL shared the news on Twitter, with Kelly making sure fans know to expect a full-blown show: “We’re bringing pyro.”

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea Comes Clean About the Horrors of Addiction in New Essay

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 12:43 PM PST

By Scott T. Sterling

Flea knows all about drug addiction.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist has opened up about his battles with drugs in a bracing new essay penned for Time magazine.

Related: Flea Compares Music Education Funding Cuts to 'Child Abuse'

“I've been around substance abuse since the day I was born,” Flea shared in the piece. “All the adults in my life regularly numbed themselves to ease their troubles, and alcohol or drugs were everywhere, always. I started smoking weed when I was eleven, and then proceeded to snort, shoot, pop, smoke, drop and dragon chase my way through my teens and twenties.”

Flea goes on to detail the ravages of living with addiction, and how it took becoming a father to finally give him the strength to get clean and sober.

“I didn't get clean through rehab or a 12-step program. I believe wholeheartedly in organizations like AA, but that was not my path,” the bassist revealed. “What worked for me was learning that the best way to grow is to consciously experience the hard times. I had a burning desire for good health and love, and found that I had to go through periods of suffering to get there. That realization was not easy, but it freed me up to have faith in myself.”

Flea then turns his attention to the growing culture of addiction that’s afflicting America, placing blame squarely on the shoulders of the medical and pharmaceutical industry.

“Many who are suffering today were introduced to drugs through their healthcare providers. When I was a kid, my doctor would give me a butterscotch candy after a checkup. Now, they're handing out scripts. It's hard to beat temptation when the person supplying you has a fancy job and credentials and it's usually bad advice not to trust them.”

He details his own experience with prescription drugs after breaking his arm snowboarding.

“My doctor put me back together perfectly, and thanks to him I can still play bass with all my heart,” Flea wrote. “But he also gave me two-month supply of Oxycontin. The bottle said to take four each day. I was high as hell when I took those things. It not only quelled my physical pain, but all my emotions as well. I only took one a day, but I was not present for my kids, my creative spirit went into decline and I became depressed. I stopped taking them after a month, but I could have easily gotten another refill.”

Sports Illustrated Model Challenges Beauty Standards With Side-by-Side Weight Looks

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 12:05 PM PST

By Kayla Jardine/Joe Cingrana

This woman is serving up some serious inspiration for people all over the world.

At a size 16, Hunter McGrady is happier than she ever was at a size double zero.

The model posted ‘before and after’ photos on Instagram of her two drastically different weights to help remind others to be proud of the body they have.

She wrote, “The girl above was a very sad, shy, unhealthy, scared girl who would have been mortified at the thought of being bigger because all I ever knew was that looking one certain way was beautiful.”

Hunter continually challenges beauty standards, even appearing nude in Sports Illustrated with words like ‘worthy’ and ‘fearless’ written across her body.

Instagram Photo

She continued: “I won't stand for a world that keeps women down and tells us we can't love ourselves. Today I challenge you to be bold, be fearless, tell yourself you love yourself, tell yourself it's going to be a good day”

Instagram Photo

In another post on Instagram showing her slender self at the age of 15, McGrady explained how she was told to lose inches off of her hips to be a model, “which would have put me at a size 00. I would desperately work out for hours and eat few calories per day, HOPING I could fit the bill. It wasn’t until 18 years old, 3 years of insecurities brought on because I thought I wasn’t good enough, that I wouldn’t measure up! I realized that my body was not built to be that thin.”

Instagram Photo

Just last week, the model shared her "In Her Own Words" Project photo taken by photographer Taylor Ballantyne for Sports Illustrated with the caption “I am WORTHY, I am FEARLESS, I have CONFIDENCE, I am BOUNDLESS, I am RESILIENT, I am POWERFUL, I am ALL ME. I am no longer bound by the chains that society has put on me to fit a certain mold that has been so confining and brainwashing.”

Kelly Clarkson Shows Love to Fellow ‘Voice’ Coaches in New Video

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 11:10 AM PST

By Scott T. Sterling

Kelly Clarkson makes her big debut as a coach on the 14th season of NBC’s The Voice tonight (Feb. 26).

The show has shared an engaging new behind-the-scenes video featuring Clarkson’s first day on the job as she gears up for the new season.

Related: 'The Voice' Stars Channel Vintage Vegas in Throwback Promo

In the clip, Clarkson shows love for her fellow judges, starting with Blake Shelton. Shelton makes the mistake of calling Clarkson out as a newbie on The Voice, with the “Since U Been Gone” singer reminding him that she mentored his team all the way back on the show’s second season (much to the delight of Adam Levine and Alicia Keys).

It’s clear that Clarkson and Shelton will be the source of some serious fireworks this season, with the clip capturing the two playfully bickering on set.

“We’re close enough to where I can really mess with him,” Clarkson says.

She goes on to share that she’s toured with Levine in the past, and even dishes that if she was into women, her woman of choice would be Alicia Keys, calling her “walking zen.”

Clarkson’s infectious energy and genuine love of music permeates the video, which sets the stage for tonight’s season premiere of The Voice on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Shinedown Talk New Music & First Albums They Bought [Pt. 1]

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 11:00 AM PST

By Maura O’Malley

Earlier this month, Shinedown announced a co-headlining spring tour with In This Moment and Five Finger Death Punch. But they've been up to a whole lot more than plotting their next tour. The band recently brought fans on set to film a new music video on February 24th and are therefore seemingly gearing up to release new music.

The band had previously set a Spring 2018 goal for the Threat to Survival follow-up, and while a release date has yet to be named, we had the chance to sit down with the band to talk about writing new music.

"This is the only time we've ever written while we were still touring an album cycle," says Zach Myers. "Eric was writing a song almost a day."

Below, hear more about the band's new music and watch them reminisce on the first albums they ever bought, from Dr. Dre to Aerosmith.

Shinedown will hit the road beginning March 23 in Deadwood, SD, with In This Moment co-headlining in March & April and Five Finger Death Punch along for the ride in May.

But we don't want you to wait that long to see more of the band. Check back soon for part two of our EXCLUSIVE three-part interview with the guys!

Chris Cornell Sings Johnny Cash’s ‘You Never Knew My Mind’

It’s the sound of two music legends coming together even though neither of them are still with us.

Related: Artists Announced for New Johnny Cash Album

A newly released recording of Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell taking on Johnny Cash’s “You Never Knew My Mind” is as heartbreaking and beautiful as expected.

Cornell’s emotional reading is part of a new collection, Johnny Cash: Forever Words, which sets a recently discovered cache of Cash's unknown poetry, lyrics, and letters, to music by an all-star array of contemporary artists.

"I met Chris backstage in the early 1990s when my father performed a show in Seattle," says John Carter Cash in a prepared statement. "Chris told me then that he had been a fan of my father even when most of his friends listened to hard rock. When I was conceiving this album years later, I reached out to him and he was excited and honored to be involved. Chris connected deeply with my father's words, and his finished version of ‘You Never Knew My Mind’ tied his own life experience to my father's on an honest level."

Other artists featured on the album include Ruston Kelly & Kacey Musgraves, Rosanne Cash, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Kris Kristofferson & Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, John Mellencamp, Carlene Carter, Elvis Costello, The Jayhawks and more.

Johnny Cash: Forever Words is set for release April 6 on Legacy Recordings.

Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui Blasts Marco Rubio Over Bible Tweet

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 09:19 AM PST

By Scott T. Sterling

Lauren Jauregui is not having it.

The Fifth Harmony singer is outraged at Florida senator Marco Rubio after he posted Bible verses in the wake of the tragic shooting at the Parkland high school.

Related: Lauren Jauregui Stands Up for LGBTQ Community: 'You Are Perfectly You'

“How do you sleep at night knowing how much of a hypocrite you are? You do know God's "commands" right? To honor human life is a huge one,” Jauregui said on Twitter in direct response to Rubio’s tweet containing the Bible verse Genesis 22:18. “To not bare false witness is another. Remember this God you claim is all seeing and all knowing. They've been with you every second at every secret engagement and phone calls you've had towards the demise of democracy in MY home state of Florida.

“You and your arrogant ignorance insult the very God who's name you hollow in vain. (Which breaks another one of those commands btw) the Jesus I read about would've walked into your office and told you himself how appalling it was to watch you stand idly by while the murder of children and innocent citizens continued so you could be a wealthier pig. And I know this because the spirit speaks through me regularly. Go read again if u wanna quote.”

The singer capped off her tweet-storm with a link to a video featuring a Parkland father confronting Rubio at last week’s CNN town hall event that followed the shooting.

“I don't think he'd be brave enough to respond you,” shared one Jauregui fan after her series of tweets.

“Of course not, Marco Rubio is a coward in every sense of the world,” the singer replied.

Adopted Daughter Surprises Stepdad With Emotional Name Change

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 09:06 AM PST

By Rebecca Zamer/Joe Cingrana

David Trevino was brought to tears when his 11-year-old adopted daughter Haleigh secretly changed her last name to be the same as his.

Haleigh and her mother Angel decided to legally change the name on her birth certificate and when they got it in the mail they couldn’t wait to break the news to David. Haleigh and Angel gave him a letter to read as an early birthday present, which explained just how much he means to her.

Fighting through tears, David read the entire note, which in part reads:

“Happy birthday and happy Valentine’s Day — you stole her heart from day one, but today she stole your last name forever!”

Angel tells Radio.com that David has been an amazing role model for her daughter Haleigh over the years, riding horses and cheering her on in sports, and there’s nothing in this world that he wouldn’t do for his daughter. And, although hitting a snag while attempting to make the name chance a surprise, she says everything worked out in the end.

“We started the process in November but we hit a bump in the road that caused us to think we were not going to be able to proceed. I took it upon myself to call the number on the letter we received with the denial and asked what had happened. The fix was so simple and did not require my husband’s signature — and on February 1st the new birth certificate was in the mail!”

Harrison explained to Radio.com why they chose “Redbone” as the jingle for Charity Joy’s cookie sales.

“It's one song out of many that we love to sing whenever it comes on the radio, so when we found the instrumental, I ask my daughter to pick out her favorite cookies, and I would write some lyrics and added her favorites into the song as a parody,” he said. “It didn't take us long to come up with the song, we sat down one day while my wife was preparing dinner and put it together. We never expected it to go viral, we just wanted to share the video with our friends and family to let them know it's cookie season.”

The Facebook video has been shared 97,771 times with 3.9 million views, and going viral has been a boon for cookie sales. Harrison says that at last check, Charity Joy is 450 boxes away from reaching 5000 boxes sold.

Kacey Musgraves Reveals Inspiration Behind ‘Space Cowboy’

Posted: 26 Feb 2018 08:29 AM PST

By Annie Reuter

Kacey Musgraves dropped two new songs on Friday (February 23), ahead of her forthcoming album Golden Hour, and now the country singer is explaining the story behind “Space Cowboy.”

Related: Kacey Musgraves Releases First Tracks From 'Golden Hour'

“One day I was out at the barn watching this stallion charging powerfully from one end of the arena to the other, bucking and galloping at full speed all alone,” she writes on Instagram. “Though I was ‘safe’ on the other side of the arena wall, it kinda scared me when he came flying toward me..barely stopping in time. My riding teacher saw him coming at me and yelled at me to move away. I said ‘I'm fine! The gate is closed!’ to which she said, ‘Girl – when they wanna go they will go…there ain't no point in even shuttin' the gate.’ It really made a mark on me when she said that and I wrote it down. SPACE COWBOY came a couple days after with @shanemcanally + @lukerobert ✨Make peace with what doesn't belong. You'll find something better.”

Instagram Photo

The song vividly comes to life in picturesque lyrics of the great frontier, cowboys and old Western films as Musgraves uses the cowboy metaphor for a relationship that has come to an end.

"Sunsets fade and love does too / Yeah, we had our day in the sun / When a horse wants to run ain't no sense in closing the gate / So you can have your space, cowboy," she sings on the chorus.

Musgraves is currently performing the track while on The Breakers Tour with Little Big Town.

“I really enjoy [Erik] Killmonger’s character,  just off the simple fact that he was a villain but he came with some real [talk],” Lamar told the BBC. “He was a villain, but he was loved and misunderstood. So if I could, I'd play a Killmonger for sure.”

Lamar curated and contributed to the soundtrack for the current film, which also features SZA, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and SOB x RBE.

With Black Panther‘s blockbuster success, a sequel seems certain. Perhaps Kendrick will get his wish.

Over the weekend, Trainor teased her next single, “No Excuses,” from that yet-untitled record. It’s been two years since Trainor released Thank You, and, in a new Instagram post, she promised the world that her best music is yet to come.

In a handwritten note, Meghan took fans back to the period shortly after her GRAMMY win for Best New Artist. What transpired was a period of physical, creative and emotional renewal.

“After winning a GRAMMY, releasing my second album and going on my third tour, I thought I’d be on top of the world — but I was wrong, it was exactly the opposite,” she wrote. “I endured a severe vocal chord hemorrhage and was forced to have surgery and to cancel all of my remaining concerts and commitments at the end of 2016…It was the darkest place I’ve ever experienced, and I was unsure if I’d ever come out of it…but I DID!”

Despite the setbacks and challenges, Meghan managed to find love and refocus her musical efforts on her new album. The lead single “No Excuses” drops Thursday morning and she explained to her followers what that title means.

"There are NO EXCUSES, I'm gonna choose happiness..and I can't wait to show you what I've learned/created for this third album. It's my best work yet,” she wrote.

Will Someone Pay $54,000 for Drake’s Journal from His ‘Degrassi’ Days?

Sixteen years ago, Aubrey Drake Graham was an actor on a Canadian teen soap, but he had dreams of being a rapper. Today he’s rap’s biggest commercial force with streaming records, hit albums and $1 million in cash to give to strangers.

If you wonder how Drake made the jump from point A to point B (or in his parlance, from the bottom to here) a notebook purported to be Drake’s Degrassi diary is available for purchase for a cool $54,000. The memorabilia site Moments in Time reportedly discovered the document in a furniture factory once owned by Drake’s grandfather.

The journal includes lyrics like the “10 Mack Commandments,” a riff on The Notorious B.I.G.’s “10 Crack Commandments”: “Show up for your date kinda late/ If she say be there 6/ then be there 8.”

“To my knowledge, there haven't been any lyrics from Drake on sale,” Moments in Time’s Gary Zimet told Radio.com. “The fact that there's so many of them in the notebook, it's such a rare find.”

"It is first come first serve, I don't know how long it'll take to sell,” he continued. “I'm hoping that Drake will buy it."

If real — and it sure seems to be — Drake’s notebook gives fans a glimpse of the future star in his early hustle — cashing checks from the Canadian Television Network and dreaming of Biggie Smalls. Check out scans of the document here.

Over the weekend, he dropped “Most Wanted” and a minute-long snippet from a second track titled”Interested.”

“Most Wanted,” produced by EarlThePearll, features syncopated beats, galactic keyboards and lyrics about fame: “Hip hop’s most wanted/ I’m in a ghost, haunted/ Took a break, now I’m back ’cause that’s what they wanted.”

Yachty first teased the song on Twitter and let fans know the song won’t be on his upcoming album.

“Interested,” which will be included on Lil Boat 2, features creative beats and Auto-Tune vocals. Yachty shared the song snippet from the studio last night (Feb. 25), and the Instagram clip features him rapping and dancing along to the track.

Lil Boat 2 will be released on March 9.

Jack Antonoff has produced hits for some of pop’s biggest female stars. At the 2018 GRAMMY Awards, he earned nods for his collaborations with Lorde (Melodrama) and Taylor Swift (“I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”). He’s also worked with P!nk, Sara Bareilles, St. Vincent and more artists with pop appeal and unique musical points-of-view. If Lana Del Rey’s Instagram story is any indication, she may be next on Jack’s list of collaborators.
