Jason Aldean has released the first three tour dates for 2013. He'll play Sanford Stadium in Athens, GA in April with supporting artists Luke Bryan, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett, be the first country artist to play Fenway Park in Boston, adding Miranda Lambert, and will also play Wrigley Field in Chicago, taking Kelly Clarkson with him for that show. About his lifestyle, Jason says “In this business, we obviously travel a lot. You know, you turn into sort of a journeyman. You kind of have that lifestyle, so I think in my case I’ve always been drawn to songs that I could relate to and things that kind of describe what it is that I do.” Keep an eye on his website for more concert dates.

When Jason Aldean jet-setted around the country last Thursday, announcing concerts in Boston, Chicago and Athens, he saved the Athens stop for last. He had some help in making that concert announcement – Georgia Bulldog coach Mark Richt.

Want to see some of the show Jason played? Here’s that video…

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are working with writers, putting together the script for the 46th Annual CMA Awards show on November 3rd. Where do they get ideas for material? According to Carrie, “Well there’s always new songs, new artists up for nominations, new things that they have political issues and this is an election year and we’re right before the election, so I’m sure we’ll be touching on that.”
Miranda Lambert is up for the CMA Album of the Year award again this year, and she's excited for the recognition her "baby" is getting. She knew she wanted to do something different for her 4th studio album, but wasn't quite sure what that was: “I mean, honestly, we had a list of songs in the studio that kind of just picked what we want as we went, because I didn’t want to say, ‘Okay, these are the, you know, 12 songs we’re recording or 15 songs we’re recording, and that’s that.’ Whatever the mood was that day, I wanted to be able to be open-minded and fluid, and I definitely think it sounds like that.” 
Reba's new show, "Malibu Country," debuts on November 2nd and she's rounding up some country pals to be part of it with her. Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson have both already said they'll guest-star, and yes, there will be lots of music on the show. 
Taylor Swift's new album, "Red," is out today and she's playing "VJ for a Day" on CMT, playing her favorite music videos. Don't be surprised if she plays other artists' videos, but one she'll definitely play is "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" because she had such fun making that one. “It’s very quirky. My band is the quirkiest part of it. When I showed them the costumes they had to wear, they were so mad —but then they owned it and they got really into it and excited, but at first it was just like—utter horror.” Check out the horror here... 
Taylor Swift is on Good Morning America, Hunter Hayes is on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and Blake Shelton is on The Voice tonight.
