Categories: Performances, Videos, Country,

Since I’m admittedly not a huge country music fan, I really didn’t know that much about Sugarland other than the song they did for Good Morning America. Then I heard Jennifer Nettles’ performance of “Stay” at this year’s Grammys and was absolutely wowed. Her voice and delivery gave me chills. So when I heard the duo recently covered Kings of Leon‘s “Sex on Fire,” I just had to watch. It was not a disappointment. ... …

The January 18 ceremony - titled “We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial” - boasts a lineup that most people would have to pay big bucks for.

The Hot Concert Tours of 2008

Clearly the economic woes have not been felt by all. In 2009, Madonna earned over $280 million in ticket sales worldwide. (That’s enough to pay several divorce settlements.) The success of the Sticky & Sweet tour made the singer the best solo draw of all time. (She beat the previous record set by herself in 2006.) The 50-year-old also became the top concert attraction in North America this year. Here are the Top Ten North …

Has the Britney Spears hype already died down? Just one week after debuting at #1, the pop princess has already been dethroned. Unfortunately, Circus wasn’t topped by a new entry.

(Circus fell 60% from last week’s 505,000 achievement.) Beyonce’s release came in third during this …

Taylor Swift Creates Her Own Behind the Scenes Video

You change your mind like a girl changes clothes. What does a country superstar do when she’s not performing on stage? Well, Taylor Swift’s apparently just like any other 18-year-old. When she’s not being dumped over the phone, she’s talking to cats, fighting with her brother or lip-synching to someone else’s music. (In this case, Swift is mouthing the words to Katy Perry’s “Hot N Cold.”) ...
