Carrie Underwood on Opry, Women in Country, and… Mudvayne – A: Which acts do you have your eye on? C: I do love Lauren Alaina. I know a lot of people are into Kacey Musgraves and her writing style.

I would want to try to do what they do [with their voices]. They were my teachers. – Read more at Glam.com

A source close to Drag Race notes that the episode was shot back in June — well before a media firestorm erupted last month over Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments in a GQ interview. The incendiary quotes, which included him likening being gay to bestiality, led to Robertson’s brief suspension from the show. Because the challenge is an “integral” element of the premiere, the source added, editing it out is not an option. – Read more at TV Line
