Life in the fast Laine – “I’ll tell you a little story,” Cindy says today, sitting on a picnic bench in her front yard, her long black hair shining in the sunlight just like her son’s. She recalls a group challenge when Laine had to pair up with other contestants. He was in agony about asking others to sing with him. “Mama,” he told Cindy, “I don’t know what to do.” “And my heart just broke for him, because I had to watch him go up to all these people and listen to everybody telling him no,” she says now. “I wanted to go and say, ‘Hey.

I know it sounds like such a cliché thing that famous people say, but believe me when I say I don’t care about being famous. I don’t. I really enjoy my life. I feel really blessed. I recently turned 37 and I told myself I was going to say yes to things I normally say no to. And it was because of someone passing away in my life. I’ve got to seize the day. You know that you have to step outside your comfort zone because you only have your comfort zone for so long. – Read more at Ad Age

Carrie Underwood Is Ready to Drive the CMA Awards Bus – In a recent radio interview, Underwood shared her vision for the upcoming Country Music Association Awards. She’ll be hosting the show with co-hosts Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton. “I feel like the three of us love what we do so much,” Underwood said, “and we love country music and it means something — I feel like — to have us up there on that stage kind of driving the bus for the evening and setting the tone.” She added that she wants to be respectful of the country genre and of this awards show. “Because it’s so important to us, and (will) shine a lot on what I think is the backbone of country music: that’s the females that have come before all of us and will come in the future. – Read more at CMT.com
