• KELLEIGH BANNEN SHOWS OFF A BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT HER FIRST MUSIC VIDEO! (AUDIO & VIDEO)

    Kelleigh Bannen recently shot the video in Nashville for her debut single, “Sorry on the Rocks,” her first video! The clip is more a piece surrounding the beautiful singer-songwriter, but it has quite the story behind it. “There was this really sweet actor who played my bad boyfriend,” says Kelleigh. “First, they had us do a photo shoot in the morning, so there were photos in the house of us like cuddling or looking like a couple.”

    Kelleigh said it was a bit uncomfortable trying to get cozy with a man who wasn’t her husband. “I’m married. I’ve been married for a while, so it was funny just holding hands with someone else that wasn’t Jeff [Grossman]. I kept getting real embarrassed about it, but he was really great and so sweet, and his wife was there too, so it wasn’t weird. But it was like, ‘Oh, that’s new. I haven’t been holding hands with anyone other than Jeff in a long time.’”

    “Sorry on the Rocks” is available NOW on iTunes.

    Check out the Behind-the-Scenes look at Kelleigh and the crew making the video for “Sorry on the Rocks” below!

  • LADY ANTEBELLUM ARE SET TO RELEASE THEIR CHRISTMAS ALBUM ON MONDAY. (AUDIO)

    Lady Antebellum are ready to release their much-anticipated Christmas album, On This Winter’s Night, Monday (October 22nd). The trio, who co-produced the album with Paul Worley, wrote the title track and arranged two other tracks – “The First Noel” and “Silent Night (Lord of My Life).”

    Lady A’s Charles Kelley says his perfect “winter’s night” would be to have his family all together. “As you get a little older and everybody has their jobs and then families and kids, it definitely becomes a harder and harder thing to get everybody together at once,” says Charles. “I think that’s one thing that I kind of yearn for is a time to get all the family together at one time…it would be pretty special to have everybody in the room and almost kind of get back to where we were as kids — all waking up at Christmas morning and walking down and having that tradition.”

    The 12-song collection also features such classics as “A Holly Jolly Christmas,” “Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home),” “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “This Christmas,” “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “Blue Christmas” and “Silver Bells.”

    Lady A are set to perform during the ABC-TV special, CMA Country Christmas, when it tapes Saturday, November 3rd at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

    “The perfect winter’s night for me would be just all the family together. As you get a little older harder thing to get everybody together at once…I think that’s one thing that I kind of yearn for is a time to get all the family together at one time. We always have about half of them, and it’s all a matter of just getting everybody down at the same time. But it would be pretty special to have everybody in the room and almost kind of get back to where we were as kids, you know, all waking up at Christmas morning and walking down and having that tradition.”

  • LUKE BRYAN HEADLINES HUGE STREET PARTY IN NASHVILLE. (AUDIO)

    Luke Bryan headlined the fifth annual Capitol Street Party on Wednesday night (October 17th), playing a free concert for the massive crowd gathered on Lower Broadway in Nashville. Luke surprised the audience with an appearance by pal Dierks Bentley, and the pair covered Brooks & Dunn’s “My Next Broken Heart.” Luke also performed numerous hits, including “Rain is a Good Thing,” “Do I,” “All My Friends Say,” “Drunk on You,” “I Don’t Want This Night to End” and “Country Girl (Shake It For Me).”

    Labelmates Kelleigh Bannen and Jon Pardi roped in some new fans as they kicked off the night with their own spectacular performances. Different reports have the crowd estimated at between 20-25,000 people strong, taking up nearly three city blocks, rooftops and restaurants. Seen in the crowd were Kip Moore (“Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” “Beer Money”) and Dustin Lynch (“Cowboys & Angels”).

    Confetti cannons and a huge fireworks display lighting up the night signaled the end to the show…and just in time, too, since a huge storm, featuring gusty winds, rain and possible threat of tornados, blew in town after the show was over.

    AUDIO: Prior to Wednesday night’s Capitol Street Party, Luke Bryan said he’s thrilled to be able to make music in Nashville.

    Luke Bryan (headlining street party) OC: …it’s fun. :19
    “I moved to Nashville, rode [the] 4-40 loop looking at the skyline years ago and dreamed of making a difference in this town. To be in the heart of it bringing music to Music City and making it a fun experience for tourists and people in Nashville, that are always like, ‘We want more country shows in Nashville,’ so it’s fun.”
