This is just one of seven tracks that Underwood co-wrote for Play On, and it is her fifth co-written single to top the charts. “Temporary Home” reflects deep and emotional moments that occur in life, but the message is one that Carrie has always seen as uplifting, as she says, “It’s hopeful, and each person in each story, in each different place in their life, knows that things are going to be okay.”
The video for "Temporary Home" has topped the countdown for the fifth consecutive week
Carrie is also on the cover of the April issue of Allure magazine which is on newsstands now.
Country Super Star Couple Tim McGraw & Faith Hill will be releasing a long awaited duet album.
"It's just a matter of time," says country music mega-star Tim McGraw in a phone interview to advance his North American tour that kicked off in Vancouver on Thursday night.The Couple has already recorded a few hit songs together such as Let's Make Love, I Need You and It's Your Love, which was their first collaboration and was awarded the 1997 ACM Award for Song of the Year.
The duo has also Co-Headlined Two Tours, the second — dubbed Soul2Soul II, which occured through 2006 and 2007 — and was the highest-grossing country-music tour of all time.
Tim was asked what was holding up the duet album. "You know, (it's) labels and all these things," he says. "Once we clear the woods a little bit, we'll (record an album), for sure."

“I’m looking forward to this event and helping bring attention to the global water crisis,” said Bentley. “The run/walks that are happening on the same day across the world are a great reminder that we are all connected and that we are all responsible for helping each other. I’ve always loved playing in Minneapolis... lots of country music fans there, and I’m excited to be part of this historic event.”
Funds raised from the events will benefit Global Water Challenge, a coalition of non profit organizations working to bring clean, safe drinking water to millions of people worldwide. This includes innovative projects that provide clean drinking water to communities in Haiti, Central America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Southeast Asia.

Hey everyone, Pickler here. I want to thank you all for being such special fans and let you know that I’ve decided to make some changes to my website and fan club. We’re moving to a new website home in April. The site you see there will be familiar, but have more content and be easier to use.
Part of the website changes will give you greater access to music, photos, videos, and message boards. I have felt for awhile that everyone should have access to these features without having to pay for it as a Fan Club member. So, as part of the website changes, we’re closing the Official Fan Club. I’m really excited about this new direction and that everyone can afford to be part of it!

Brad Paisley celebrated the success of two of his recent No. 1 hits, Welcome to the Future and American Saturday Night, at an industry party at Nucci's Italian Ice & Gelato in Franklin, TN., on Monday, March 22nd.
Ironically Brad chose the unusual location because "Italian Ice" is mentioned in American Saturday Night and Brad wished to have a connection with one of the songs. In addition, it's also a favorite spot for Brad & his wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley, who attended the celebration.
Before the celebration, Paisley told reporters that the two songs have a common bond. "These songs are pieces of my life and it's interesting that both are observations about the world," Brad explained. "They are similar in the sense that they are larger than personal relationship songs."
Brad also talked about his upcoming H2O World Tour presented by Chevy which will kick off this May opening in Virgina Beach. "We were talking abut the upcoming summer tour," Brad noted. "The idea was having 'Water' as the next single from the album and we wanted to have it peaking by summertime. And I think my agent said, 'Why don’t you call it the H2O Tour?'"
A portion of the tour proceeds will benefit Hope Through Healing Hands, which aims to provide clean drinking water for countries around the world.
"If there's one thing about Oprah," Chesney said, "it's the way she makes you feel so comfortable and so understood. I've done her show three times, I think, and every time, you work harder than you realize - cause you just want to be as good as she is - and you open up more than you knew you could...and sometimes you even find out things about yourself. Or at least, I do."
"So, when we started talking about where to take this movie...to bring people into what it was, how it came together, what it means to me...," Chesney said. "I figured this movie came out of a whole bunch of dreams I've had over the years; where would be the dream place to show people what we've been doing? And really, there's only one place: 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' And just like jamming with my idols onstage, or playing the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Ga. or selling out Gillette Stadium all those years ago, if you're willing to dream it, it can happen."
Without giving away the secret about the "surprise", Kenny took a field team from Oprah with him to the Florida Keys for a special afternoon, according to his publicist. In regards to the surprise, "when the producer's put the question to me, it took me back," said Chesney "In some ways, obviously, I have the means to do whatever I'd truly want to do, but sometimes that means stopping and looking around. With our schedule that's not always as easy as you'd think. Sometimes, too, people will do things for Oprah, they might not do for the rest of us."
Although Kenny is not doing a headlining tour, he has been diligently working on several tasks such as his next album, writing a preface to ESPN's Mike & Mike's new book Rules for Sports & Life, as well as about a dozen performances this summer. We are also enjoying Chesney's current single Ain't Back Yet as it is played nationwide on the radio and steadily climbing the country charts and also serves as the closing theme for his "Kenny Chesney Summer in 3-D" Movie which will be released April 21st.
