Carrie Underwood Entertains And Enlightens At The Acoustic Cafe – Carrie also shared some insight in how she chooses her rather eclectic collaborators, and said being open to try new things is the most important part of teaming up. “I’m really up for anything. I love the opportunity to do something unexpected, which is why the Aerosmith thing and working with Steven Tyler and doing the thing with Tony Bennett and people like that,” she said. “It kind of just has to happen. It has to be the right time and the right song and the right person and it just all has to work. So many people do so many duets albums now that I might be on another duet album coming up.” While the singer wouldn’t say who her new duet partner was, she did give this hint: “They were on the CMAs.” – Read more at CBS Local

Scotty McCreery Interview with Wzra Tv @ The Grove

Phillip Phillips Interview with Wzra Tv @ The Grove LA

‘X Factor’s’ Tate Stevens talks about life on top – Sounds like no one was as surprised as Tate Stevens to learn last week — on live TV, no less — that viewer votes put him at No. 1 among 13 acts on Fox’s “The X Factor.” No. 1! “Crazy!” the country singer from Raymore told us in a quick backstage phone interview from L.A. on Monday. “I really just wanted to make it to the next week, so to be voted No. 1 was just awesome. It speaks volumes for the country music fans out there.” We’d wondered about that. Was Stevens polling so well because he has made a lot of fans? Or because he’s the only country act in a field of pop acts? – Read more at Kansas

The Voice Top 12 Channel their Secret Agents

Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera & Adam Levine Unleashed

Tony Lucca on Life After ‘The Voice’ and His New Christina Aguilera-Inspired Song – “Adam says, day one: ‘Don’t invest too much in winning. You’ve all won, you’re here, you’re on TV, you’re getting exposure — this is just the beginning of your careers now,’” Lucca said before performing at Highline Ballroom in New York. “The fact that he went on to sign me is a testament.” Due to conflicting schedules, Lucca and his former coach haven’t hashed out album details yet, but he can foresee how the musical relationship will resume later this year. “We’ve both voiced interest in sitting down to write together, and he certainly knows the value of a good duet or a featured vocalist track,” he explained. “It’s his competitive nature that I’m excited about harnessing. Then, of course, when it’s time to unleash the marketing strategy, that’s where he’ll really kick in. He’s gonna be shameless about it.” Following the creative arc he explored while on The Voice, Lucca envisions his new music as “The Black Keys meets a male Adele,” staying away from Top 40 sounds and closer to adult alternative tastes. One song may feature fellow former Mickey Mouse Club member, Justin Timberlake. “After I signed with Adam, I hit him up right away,” Lucca said. “We’re different genres stylistically as artists, but as musicians and as a producer, he’s done just about every kind of thing out there. It would definitely have his Midas touch on it; he’s not afraid to take risks either. Anyone who can declare they’re bringing sexy back is about as ballsy as someone who can profess to the world that he has the moves like Jagger.”  DELUSIONAL – Read more at The Hollywood Reporter

    Video:  World Vision USA

    “Introducing our host for the True Spirit of Christmas trip to Kenya this year… American Idol winner Kris Allen! Check out this intro video and join us this holiday season to see how items from the Gift Catalog really do change lives!”

  • Li Wright

    Jennifer’s line of clothing is nothing spectacular.  I hope SHE didn’t design it, because the line is frumpy and the colors are dull.

  • girlygirltoo

    Got to love the shot of the cow with a red bow around its neck. I’m still not exactly clear what Kris will be doing during his trip to Kenya, but I know World Vision USA is a very cool charity, so I’m looking forward to hearing more about this.

    From my twitter feed, it looks like One Direction’s album might be available to download on iTunes now? At least on the East Coast? I’m sure that MJ will put up a thread with a link for downloading, if indeed this is the case :)

    Trespassing is #9  in iTunes Best Pop Albums of 2012:

  • lovetheusa1776

    Wonderful – Trespassing is an outstanding piece of work, and the vocals are brilliant.  It deserves the highest praise.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Yes, just checked it out.  “Little Things” is very pretty, as well as “Kiss You.”  Like “I Would,” too.

    When David Cook shows up in Kansas City, MO next Tuesday to be the guest at their 125th Annual Celebration, he’s gonna have a busy schedule. That same day, the Blue Springs Board of Education has invited him to be honored at a ceremony where the access drive at his former elementary school will be named after him. 

    It’s kinda sorta cool – David made an official visit to Thomas Ultican Elementary in 2008 on his Idol Home Visit, to bring some flowers to Mrs. Gentry, who was his music teacher there, and speak to her class. This time, the school wants to give something to him.

  • Karen C

    I’m sooo glad they are doing this for him, it’s really an honor along with the Chamber of Commerce thing that night. 

    I like the part about his busy schedule, also :) 

  • mmb

    I don’t think that is any sort of a “ranking” by iTunes. It’s just a list/promotion. But very nice, and appropriate, to include Trespassing on any list of the years best albums. It was already on many lists of best albums for first half of 2012 and has been well-reviewed. And it really is a terrific album

    P2 is also at Z on Elvis Duran this am. Guess he is doing a NTC radio swing today

  • HKfan

    I brought the physical copy of 1D’s new cd today here in HK (legitimate!!!) so it must be available on US itunes.

    wish I could stay awake for the livestream of Adams SA concert tonight, unfortunately he’s due to come on at 3am my time……can’t do that on a school night!

  • tripp_ncwy

    It will probably be similar to last year’s trip to Sri Lanka

    The host will post a blog & videos during the trip.

    I am always so impressed with how Scotty handles being interviewed.  The interviewer was not really ready with great questions but Scotty handled himself well.  Saw some videos of Scotty performing at the Grove and he did a great job on his two songs Santa Claus is Back In Town and Christmas in Heaven.  The crowd looked huge.
