Today's country tidbits...

How does Brad Paisley say goodbye to his fans at the end of a tour? By showing exactly why he won't ever be on Dancing With the Stars, as he has previously promised. Check out the video Brad and his crew did to cap the tour. Not exactly country music, and not exactly the Rockettes!

Ramping up to the CMA Awards show, country artists are all over your tv.

Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift are on the Ellen show today.

Jack Ingram is on the Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Monday night.

Also Monday night, Carrie Underwood will be on The Late Show With David Letterman. Then Tuesday morning, watch her on Good Morning America. Her new cd, "Play On," streets on Tuesday, so she's working it and the CMA Awards shows next week.

Reba hits the air on two shows Tuesday the 3rd - Live with Regis And Kelly, where she'll sing "Pink Guitar" and then Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where she'll sing "I Want A Cowboy."

Brad Paisley will be on The Late Show With David Letterman this coming Tuesday night, and on Good Morning America the following Tuesday morning. He'll be joined by Carrie Underwood for the GMA appearance, and they'll be doing a live, free outdoor concert in Nashville.

And don't forget - Saturday, November 7th, Taylor Swift is hosting and performing on Saturday Night Live.

Then on Sunday evening, watch Kellie Pickler on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition as she helps re-build an Ohio home. She'll sing during the reveal part of the show.

Robin Roberts is the host for a show which should win the award for Longest Title Ever for a Television Special: "In the Spotlight With Robin Roberts: Bright Lights, Big Stars, All Access Nashville." It features interviews with Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Vince Gill, Roseanne Cash and Loretta Lynn. That show will air before the CMA Awards on November 11th. And in case you didn't know this, Robin Roberts is a big country music fan. Before her tv career, she was on the air at a country radio station.

And on CMT tomorrow night, you can watch Brooks and Dunn squirm just a little bit. Kix and Ronnie recorded their "CMT Invitation Only: Brooks & Dunn" right after they announced that they were going separate ways, so you know questions about that decision are bound to be part of the show.

Larry the Cable Guy's Hula-Palooza Christmas Luau tv special will include musical performances from Billy Currington and the Zac Brown Band. The 90-minute variety show airs November 20th on CMT.

Taylor Swift still isn't saying it's a relationship, but she is gushing over teen heartthrob Taylor Lautner. They've recently been seen together around LA, and the musical Taylor says, "We're really close...and ah...yep." The two met on a movie set, filming "Valentine's Day" which stars Julia Roberts, Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper. It'll be released February 10, 2010.

Wanna see the video for Taylor Swift's "15?" Here is is.

Would you rather try your hand at making a video? Mark Wills' song, "Crazy White Boy," is not only a fun song, it's spawned a fun contest. Check out Mark telling you how your video for his song could be your ticket to fame!
