Today's Country Tidbits

Well, we knew she could sing, but who knew she was so proper? Taylor Swift has landed at #5 on the list of the 10 Best-Mannered People of 2011. The list was compiled by the National League of Junior Cotillions, and the rest of the top five are Kate Middleton, Justin Bieber, Paula Abdul and Aaron Rogers. Kim Kardashian was named the "Most Ill-Mannered Person" of the year.

While Lady Antebellum was busy owning the night Sunday night - the last night of this leg of their tour - Josh Kelley and Edens Edge were planning a pranking. Check it out...

Ever wonder if the stars have special Christmas traditions they observe with their kids? Faith Hill shares one of hers: “They make reindeer food the night before Christmas. We make it with oatmeal and glitter so the reindeer will be fed, and they also can see our house because the glitter will shine up through the stars. So, the reindeer come down and land in the front yard, sometimes on the roof, depending on where we are, and each time it’s amazing, they have left one of their bells behind off of the reindeer sled. Isn’t that remarkable? So, that’s one tradition.”

Darius Rucker will spend the early months of 2012 working on a new album and touring with Lady Antebellum, but he'll take time out to perform his annual fund-raiser for the Medical University of South Carolina Children's Hospital. This year, he'll offer up a night of Sinatra on February 13th, which is a Monday night. Tickets will set you back from $50 to $250.

Congratulations to Zac Brown Band on having the #1 song again this week with "Keep Me In Mind."

The tweet of the day is from Blake Shelton: "Holiday Help... by Blake Shelton Hate being asked to do the dishes after Christmas dinner? Drop some of moms fine china.. Hello football!!"
