Today's Country Tidbits

Artists on tour spend a lot of time at truck stops. Yesterday, Miranda Lambert found a dog wandering around and no one knew who he belonged to. She made a new friend and is semi-threatening to give him to Blake Shelton as a touring partner. Doubt that'll happen - Miranda has a very soft spot in her heart for stray dogs.

Taylor Swift, who's in Japan for a concert there Wednesday, has picked up a couple of nominations in the Kids Choice Awards. She's up for Favorite Female Singer and Favorite Song for "You Belong With Me." The award show will air live on Nickelodeon March 27th.

Valentine’s Day – Taylor Swift’s first big-screen appearance – had an opening weekend box office of 67 million…did you go see it?

Carrie Underwood is in Hawaii, filming her role in the movie "Soul Surfer." Poor thing, she's missing out on all the cold and snow in the southeast!

It just wasn't Emmett's day at the dog show yesterday. Garth Brooks' Greyhound, Emmett, showed at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show, but didn't win a single ribbon. Today, we'll see if Vince Gill's Welsh Springer Spaniel, Manny, can do better.

Kellie Pickler is on the Ellen Degeneres show today as part of Ellen's Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras celebration. No, that doesn't mean Kellie is fat!

Brad Paisley will be on Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow night.
