    13-Year-Old German Boy Delivers Insane Elvis Tribute On ‘The Voice’

    13-Year-Old Karel Zingt from Germany delivered an insane performance of Elvis Presley‘s rocking hit single Jailhouse Rock” on The Voice Kids in Germany.

    Dressed up like an old school greaser, Karel resembles The King both musically and in appearance. The 13-year-old rocker utterly floored the judges earning a unanimous hit from all three big red buttons.

    The audience, along with the coaches, cheered on Karel as well as joined in on his display of some of Elvis’ signature dance moves. His German accent adds an interesting touch to the performance of the internationally treasured classic.

    Jailhouse Rock was released in 1957 and was Presley’s first major hit reaching No.1 on both the U.S. Billboard’s Hot 100 chart as well as the UK Singles chart, while also dipping into the top ten in Australia, Belgium, and Finland.

    Jailhouse Rock has transcended both time and language barriers making it one of the most revered songs of all time. You can watch Karel’s rockstar performance in the video below and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments!

    Glen Campbell’s Final Performance Of ‘Gentle On My Mind’ Is Absolutely Heartbreaking

    After a six-year long battle with Alzheimer’s disease, Glen Campbell passed away at age 81 early yesterday morning (August 8). Following his 2011 diagnosis of the devastating disease, the great country singer organized his Goodbye Tour to properly bid his fans farewell before the disease rendered him unable to perform.

    At the end of the tour, Glen made his historical final live performance at Uptown Theatre in Napa, California on November 30, 2012. And what better song to make his last than his iconic “Gentle on My Mind?”

    Stumbling at the beginning of the performance, Glen powered through in an inspirational show of mental strength and pure talent. The legendary singer brought his talented daughter Ashley Campbell along on tour with him, the beautiful blonde seen gazing lovingly at her father throughout his performance.

    “That was a really difficult day,” Glen’s wife Kim said according to Taste of Country. “It was difficult leading up to the show, it was really stressful and difficult. That night was really, really, really hard, and we just knew this was it. We were going home for the Christmas break, and that we were not gonna add more shows after that.”

    The great country singer died of complications from Alzheimer’s disease while living in a full-time care facility in Nashville, Tennessee.

    You can watch his final performance below.

    Carrie Underwood’s Dancing Steals The Show In ‘The Fighter’ Music Video With Keith Urban

    In February 2016, Keith Urban took to social media with Carrie Underwood to announce that they officially released their duet “The Fighter” as a single.

    Here we are from the set, it looks a bit like a boxing ring, although Carrie and I get along pretty well,” he said in the video. Seeing as the title of the song is “The Fighter,” it makes a lot of sense that the video is set in a boxing ring type of setting.

    The video goes back and forth between footage of Urban and Underwood performing the call-and-answer-styled song together in the boxing ring filled with lights and a blonde, beanie-clad woman dancing in the street.

    She’s not the only person dancing in this video, though! Miss Underwood, who dons a super cute torn sweater, shows off some of her spontaneous dance skills, making us green with envy that she is dancing alongside the hunky Keith Urban!

    After Years Of Hard Work, Ronnie Dunn Celebrates Monumental Achievement

    You all know Ronnie Dunn as one half of what is arguably the most successful country music duo ever…Brooks & Dunn. Made up of Dunn and his good friend Kix Brooks, Brooks & Dunn scored 20 number one hits and saw 19 more make it into the Top Ten.

    After 20 years of performing together, the duo eventually parted ways in 2010 so Dunn and Brooks could focus on their solo projects. Since then, Brooks has released two solo records, while Dunn has released three.

    Brooks & Dunn’s separation didn’t last for long. A few years back, they reunited in order to perform with Reba McEntire in Las Vegas. That residency has been renewed time and time again, with some dates already scheduled for 2018.

    Although they have their residency, the duo has refrained from doing a full-scale tour together. This has given both Dunn and Brooks the time to focus not only on their music, but some of their other projects as well.

    Only Dunn’s most devoted fans know that he is so much more than just a singer and songwriter. Even those who don’t actively follow him can take a glance at his social media accounts and quickly learn that he has a passion and talent for photography.

    Posted by Ronnie Dunn on Sunday, August 27, 2017

    Dunn has been working on his photography skills for years now, ever since Brooks & Dunn decided to part ways. As he explained during an interview with One Country, he picked up photography after the duo disbanded because he felt like he needed something to do:

    When I kind of left the Brooks and Dunn thing, I just didn’t have anything to do with my hands, so I needed something creative to do. I’m a terrible carpenter, so I got a camera and had a place in Santa Fe, and the sunsets out there are —The house was located in a spot which just literally like, you owned the sunset. I would go out and play with that, and then I just kept getting more into it and more into it. Next thing you know I’m trying to catch lightning, storms going across the river, people screaming at me, ‘Get in the house.’ Now it’s really fun, really fun.”

    Since then, Dunn has travelled all over the country and has captured some breathtaking shots in the process. Fans were particularly impressed with the striking images he snapped during rodeo events.

    How NOT to use your head !We're still at Cheyenne Frontier Days. Fabulous hospitality, all volunteer staff treated us to front and center photo op spots.I caught this one Sunday. RD

    Posted by Ronnie Dunn on Tuesday, July 25, 2017

    Now, Dunn’s rodeo photography is being recognized to an even higher degree. As he proudly announced on Brooks & Dunn’s Facebook page, 12 photos from one of his rodeo shoots were selected for display in a exhibit at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum.

    Dunn wrote that he was “blown away” to hear about this achievement. He revealed that the exhibit will be open for a full year, from February 2018-February 2019. More details will be revealed in an official press release at a later date.

    In addition to all of that, Dunn also shared that one of his photos, titled “Sea of Hats,” will be featured in the February/March edition of Cowboys & Indians magazine. Look in the post below to see that photo, as well as a few others that will be included in his museum exhibit.

    ….very proud to announce that 12 photos from my first official Lensmen Project rodeo shoot were chosen by and…

    Waylon Jennings’ Silly Song Prompts Flirty Conversation With Wife Jessi Colter

    Country music has seen its fair share of power couples over the years, one being Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter. Since both were pioneers in the outlaw movement, the two have come to be regarded as the King and Queen of outlaw country, and rightfully so.

    Jennings and Colter married in 1969 and had one child together, a son they named Waylon Albright “Shooter” Jennings. They remained married until Jennings’ death in 2002.

    The two often worked together, which further cemented their status as a power couple in country music. They recorded duets, both contributed to the widely successful Wanted! The Outlaws compilation album, and Jennings even produced some of Colter’s records.

    The two often travelled with one another, and because of this, they ended up appearing on a number of TV shows together. One of those shows was Cowboy Jack Clement’s TV show, on which Jennings decided to perform one of his more humorous songs, titled “Waymore’s Blues.”

    As Jennings later explained after he sang, the first part of the song is about the late country singer Jimmie Rodgers. That part of the song probably makes the most logical sense, but it gets more ridiculous as it continues. At one point, Jennings resorts to spelling out words, including the word “dog” three times.

    Colter was right by her husband’s side as he sang, and could be seen smiling and laughing throughout the song. Once he wrapped things up, he told her that he sang “Waymore’s Blues” as a joke to author and songwriter Shel Silverstein because he thought it didn’t make any sense.

    Is that right?” Colter questioned while shooting him a flirtatious smile.

    It’s truth,” Jennings responded playfully.

    That sparked a bunch of banter between the couple, as Colter asked her husband about the song.You didn’t think it made any sense when you wrote it?” she asked him.

    It don’t make any sense,” he admitted. “It does, but it don’t. I had to really dig to get a story out of it.”

    Clearly amused, Colter responded, saying, “Honey that’s not the way you do it. You don’t say that it has a concept after you’ve finished it.”

    Taking a puff of his cigarette, Jennings realized he had been defeated.”It was a good song alright,” he said.

    You can watch the couple’s full conversation in the clip below. If you need something to make you smile, this video should do the trick. They were so cute together!

    Jason Aldean Shows What ‘Real Life’ Is Like With A Newborn Baby

    For the past month, Brittany and Jason Aldean have been enjoying spending time with their newest bundle of joy, baby Memphis Aldean Williams. He was born on December 1, 2017 at 1:29pm weighing 9lbs, 5oz. Brittany described it as “the happiest day of my life.”

    https://www.instagram.com/p/BcL_NFThloA/?taken-by=brittanyaldean

    Since Memphis’ birth, Brittany has shared many photos of her life as a new mom, with several extremely adorable photos of Memphis. Jason has noticed that his wife of almost three years only posts super cute photos of their son, but he wants the world to know the truth!

    [Brittany] is always posting pics of Memphis that are good, but this is actually the stuff she doesn’t post. #reallife #hangry,” he captioned a photo of their son crying.

    The hashtag “#hangry” that Jason used in the post is a term used when you are so hungry, you are angry, and Memphis definitely looks “hangry” in this photo! Hundreds of fans commented on the photo saying they “feel his pain” as they are parents as well!

    Jason is also dad to Keeley (14) and Kendyl (10), his daughters from his previous marriage.

    Justin Timberlake & Matt Morris Stun With Heart-Wrenching ‘Hallelujah’ Duet

    In what can only be described as an intense musical connection between two phenomenal artists, Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris shattered hearts with a surreal duet of “Hallelujah” at the 2010 Hope for Haiti telethon event.

    The two artists enchanted the audience, intertwining their vocals eloquently throughout the entire performance. The pair took a heart-wrenching approach to the song, emotion pouring through each of them as they delivered the powerful lyrics.

    The event followed the massive earthquake that devastated Haiti back in 2010, sending over $20 million in supplies after the disaster. Their rendition of the song went on to become the most downloaded song from the event, shooting straight to No.1 on iTunes as well as No.13 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

    Timberlake met Morris when he was just 10 years old and credits the singer-songwriter as the reason for his impressive vocal riff.

    You can listen to their rendition of “Hallelujah” below.

    Rare: Live Footage Of 14-Year-Old Hank Williams Jr. Singing “Your Cheatin’ Heart”

    Ten years after the passing of his father, a 14-year-old boy follows his fathers footsteps and takes the stage at the Grand Ole Opry.

    This rare footage is a glimpse into Hank Williams Jr.‘s early beginnings and shows just how much talent he inherited from his legendary father. The early years for the singer were filled with performances of him singing his father’s hits and imitating the same style. It wasn’t until years later that the talented artist would come into his own style and voice.

    During an Opry performance in 1963, Ed Sullivan introduced him by name and notated his relation to the late Hank Williams. “Let’s have a fine welcome for this youngster!” he shouted.

    Not missing a beat, the teenager starts right in singing “Your Cheatin’ Heart” with incredible vocal precision and tone. He truly is a gifted singer and proves that in every way during this show.

    The song was recorded by Hank Williams in September 1952, but was not released until shortly after his untimely death in 1953. The year after Hank Jr. performed the hit song on the Opry stage, his recording was used in a biopic about his father’s life.

    Although Hank Jr.’s career began covering his father’s songs, he made himself a legend with hits like “Country Boys Can Survive,” “Family Tradition,” “All My Rowdy Friends,” “Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound,” and “Just Call Me Hank,” to name a few.

    It’s always so awesome to see your favorite singers at the very beginning of their career and see just how far they’ve come. There’s one thing Hank Jr. still has from when he was 14 – talent!

    Watch the video clip below for a glimpse into Hank Jr. and his early start as a country music star!

    If Ronnie Dunn’s Hot Song Was Whiskey, We’d “Be A Damn Drunk”

    Ronnie Dunn, most widely known for his performance and popularity in the country duo Brooks and Dunn, recently released a single that has had fans screaming for more!

    Dunn’s collaboration not only involved his right-hand man, Kix Brooks but also included Rascal Flatts band member Jay DeMarcus. This talented trio worked tirelessly to bring this powerful number to life and capture the essence of great country music. 

    The song’s powerful chorus comes to a heart-stopping close with lyrics like “I love the way you always go and mess me up; if you were a whiskey, girl, I’d be a damn drunk.”

    In addition to the single’s mesmerizing lyrics, the southern ranch location in which they filmed the video gives a whole new meaning to the word beautiful! The spacious fields, country mountains, and cliche Southern property with wooden horse stalls create a perfect backdrop for this song.

    We all feel that our expectations for Dunn’s hit have definitely been reached, if not surpassed!  Want to decide for yourself? Go ahead and check it out below!
