There are always big parties when a country star scores a No.1 single, but Jason Aldean and his team blew the doors off of Nashville's City Winery when they celebrated three No.1's, "Burnin' It Down," "Just Gettin' Started," and "Tonight Looks Good on You." Jason and his record label team along with the songwriters on all three hits, their publishing companies and a score of other industry VIPs floated from room to room as each song was given its own recognition and celebration.

It would have been enough just to make a movie about Dolly Parton's childhood, but we have just learned that Jennifer Nettles will star as Dolly's mother, Avie Lee Parton, in the film Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors. Jennifer recently starred as Roxie Hart in the musical Chicago, her Broadway debut. The movie is not about Dolly's whole life, but instead covers incidents that occurred in the Parton family around the time the country star was just 9 years old.

If you don't like Kip Moore, he's perfectly fine with that. In fact, that's what one of his new tracks, "That's Alright With Me" is about. Moore makes no apologies for who he is, and the rockin' song is proof.  "That's Alright With Me" is a country-rock anthem that tells everyone that Moore is Moore: What you see is what you get, and he's not going to change for anyone. It's a theme the artist also explores in Wild Ones' lead single, "I'm to Blame."

If you're feeling blue today, perhaps the Band Perry's new single, "Live Forever," can help you start feeling a little yellow? The trio Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry, known for their high-energy, raucous and entertaining sets, debuted the brand-new tune on Good Morning America .Fans were encouraged to wear yellow!

Shane Nicholson's new album Hell Breaks Loose is out and one of the tracks has made it to the chart, 2nd hand man which is the standout track. Stereo 974 playing tracks from the album, his best in a long while. Many of these songs are about self-discovery and new horizons.'' According to Shane.

Don Henley has put down a new album, we are looking forward to Cass Country! Don shares studio time with Martina McBride, Mick Jagger, Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Lucinda Williams, Trisha Yearwood and - of course - Dolly, who duets with Don on 'When I Stop Dreaming' the third single from Henley's first full-blown country record.

Reba McEntire has announced the release of new single 'Until They Don't Love You' just days after news of her split with husband of 26 years, Narvel Blackstock. The title is sure to get reactions, as will lines like "Don't know what you want 'til you need it", "Don't know that it's love until it's leaving", and the kicker in the chorus: "Sometimes you don't love somebody until they don't love you." "The song is the second single lifted from Love Somebody, following "Going out like that"

Luke Bryan's fifth studio album, Kill the Lights, is one of the most-anticipated projects of 2015. Bryan got his start in country music as a songwriter, and though his recent albums have focused more on songs from outside writers, he took a stronger hand in the songwriting for Kill the Lights.

Trisha Yearwood has sold more than 12 million albums throughout the course of her career, and is a platinum-selling and multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM Award-winning recording artist. Her chart-topping hits include "She's In Love With The Boy," "XXX's and OOO's (An American Girl)," and "How Do I Live." Trisha Yearwood  will take off the Voice of Music Award at the 53rd annual Country Music Awards, to be held on Monday, November 2nd, 2015 at the Omni Nashville Hotel.

Have a great week!

For the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones' classic "I Can't Get No (Satisfaction)," the rock band has announced that Rascal Flatts will open their July 4 show at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The new project comes on the heels of Campbell's 2013 album, Never Regret, which was his second album for his former label, , and included the record breaking song "Outta My Head," which stayed on the charts for one full year.
