Jerrod Niemann is sporting some new ink on his left forearm these days in honor of his own musical hero. But it’s not the usual tributes to guys like Waylon Jennings or Merle Haggard that Niemann is giving a shout-out to — it’s honky-tonk legend Lefty Frizzell.
If Sunny Sweeney seems to be glowing a little more than normal in the recent weeks, it’s because she’s still beaming from becoming a happily married woman. Sweeney and her new husband, Jeff Hellmer, tied the knot on 11/11/11 in Las Vegas in a very intimate ceremony.
Kenny Chesney returns to the top of the country singles charts this week with his latest hit, ‘Reality.’ The tune marks Chesney’s 23rd career chart-topper and the fourth from his current album, ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey.’ Previous No. 1 hits from that album include ‘The Boys of Fall,’ ‘Somewhere With You’ and ‘Live a Little.’
Thompson Square‘s Keifer and Shawna Thompson are the latest country stars to use their celebrity status to do good for those in need. The husband and wife duo have joined forces with ChildFund International for the remainder of their 2012 tour dates in order to help bring awareness to the global child development and protection agency, which helps the world’s deprived, excluded and vulnerable children survive.
Kip Moore‘s fans just can’t seem to get enough of his latest Top 20 single, ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck.’ Well, they better get ready for even more tunes from the charming newcomer, as his debut album ‘Up All Night’ is being released on Tuesday, April 24.
After a successful surgery for his battle with stage IV colon cancer in December, Wade Hayes is finally on the right side of recovery.

Keith Urban‘s ‘You Gonna Fly’ is in its second week atop the country singles chart. The tune, which was penned by the LoCash Cowboys, as well as country rocker Jaren Johnston, topped both Billboard and Mediabase last week after only 19 weeks on the chart. This week, it spends its second consecutive week at No. 1 on both charts. The victory marks the first time in years that a country song — and Urban — have held down the No. 1 position for multiple weeks on all charts.
When Keith Urban says thank you to his team for their never-ending rallying and support of his career, he goes all out, every time.

Tuesday afternoon (Feb. 28), Nashville’s BMI lobby was packed with the friends, family, industry peers and fellow co-writers of Eric Church, as they all had the same goal in mind: to pour a cold cocktail and celebrate one of country music’s hottest stars for his first ever No. 1 single, ‘Drink in My Hand.’
