Danielle Bradbery Opens Up About Her New Life as a Country Star

Being a huge fan of NBC’s The Voice made me extremely excited to interview it’s latest country winner, Danielle Bradbery. The 17 year old Heart of Dixie Singer is not only cute as a button but ridiculously talented! She filled me in on her tour with Brad Paisley, her upcoming writing venture and even her boyrfriend – sorry boys! I was very impressed with her free spirit and willingness to open up. I honestly can’t wait to see how her career develops in the next few years. Mark my words, this girl is going to be a star!

Johnny Depp Plays Guitar Onstage with Willie Nelson

Shut the front door! Johnny Depp – yes, the famed actor – jumped on stage to play lead guitar with Willie Nelson!

Willie was playing a set for the South for Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas, when “John” was introduced to the crowd. Johnny, disguised as John in a fashionable fedora and button down vest, played along side Willie to “On The Road Again,” one of the country singer’s most famous songs.

Apparently Johnny Depp wasn’t the only special guest during the song. ABC affiliate KUVE in Austin reported via Facebook  that Willie’s son, Lukas Nelson, was also playing during the set.

This isn’t the first time Johnny Depp has crashed concerts by playing his guitar. He’s played with Alice Cooper and an amazing 30 second solo with Aerosmith. I do think, however, that his duet with Willie is the best. I may be a bit bias.

Carrie Underwood Attends New York Fashion Week

Carrie Underwood has made her fashion week debut! The country trend setter was spotted in New York City over the weekend attending the Rebecca Minkoff and Peter Som shows for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

Carrie, pictured in a pink Ted Baker dress, is no stranger to fashion so it’s a bit surprising that this is her first time attending the big event, but she has a good reason. She told the AP she doesn’t get a lot of time to attend the shows despite her love for fashion. “I just thought I’d come in for the day and go along for the ride,” she says.

The singer also found time to chat with E! News about one of her favorite designers, Rebecca Minkoff. In the video below she gushes over the feminine style of Minkoff’s designs.

Carrie Underwood Releases Behind The Scenes Video of Nail Polish Collection

Can we take a moment and just say how stunning Carrie Underwood looks in this new behind the scenes video? The singer  is certainly one of Nashville’s biggest fashionistas, so it comes as no surprise that Carrie would lend her name to a fashion related line. Carrie now has a collection of nail polishes from Nicole by OPI.

Carrie shared the behind the scenes video from her recent Nicole by OPI photo shoot and talks about her tour. “As far as my nails, I just like being dramatic on stage and having fun, and doing something that I might not do in my everyday life,” she says.  “It’s all about, for me, playing a character.”

The bright, sultry, and glamorous collection has 14 different shades in fun names like American Apple Pie and Backstage Pass. Other names are a nod to her songs – Some Hearts and Goodbye Shoes – and one, Love My Pups, is a personal touch. The collection is now available at nicolebyopi.com and in stores.

Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw win at the People’s Choice Awards

After 700 million votes, the people have spoken. And their country choices for the 2014 People’s Choice Awards are Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift.

Swift beat out several other deserving country artists including Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, The Band Perry and Lady Antebellum, to pick up her fifth People’s Choice Award for Favorite Country Artist.

McGraw snagged the Country Music Icon award over Alan Jackson, George Straight and Toby Keith. This award comes 10 years after McGraw won his first People’s Choice Awards for Favorite Country Artist award back in 2004.

It was a big night for McGraw and Swift, but Blake Shelton actually scored most nominations for a country artist with three. He eventually lost in all categories. However, the Voice did pick up the award for Favorite Competition TV Show, so technically he got a win there.

And it sounds like Danielle couldn’t be happier with her new gig. “This has been an incredible year — I never thought I would have a record deal so quickly and appear in campaigns for SKECHERS.”

President of SKECHERS, Michael Greenberg, even likened Bradbery to a country superstar who also had the same endorsement with the shoe retailer. ““With a Top 20 hit under her belt, she’s clearly talented and definitely one to watch.
