MUSIC NEWS

On "Kimmel," Brad Paisley Performs with Demi Lovato, Reve...

Wednesday, 5:00 AM

Mark Horton/WireImageBrad Paisley made some news on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night.

First, he give Kimmel a full-throated endorsement of the chat show host's run for Vice President of the United States -- even wearing a campaign t-shirt to prove his loyalty. 

Paisley also sang a song poking fun of the North Carolina bathroom controversy set to Tammy Wynette's classic "Stand By Your Man." Sample: "Sit by your man/Why is this such a big deal/Just hike up your dress and take a stand!"

Paisley confirmed that he and Carrie Underwood will host November's Country Music Awards, which would bring their total number of team-ups to 11 -- two shy of Vince Gill's hosting record of 13. "Vince Gill is going to be furious at this news," Kimmel quipped. 

Finally, Brad closed out the show by performing "Without a Fight," his new duet with Demi Lovato. The country star said Demi cut her teeth "singing Billy Gilman at a rodeo in Texas," and it took just "four days" from the time they spoke about collaborating, to the song being cut.

David Nail Turns Trouble in His Marriage into a Tribute t...

Wednesday, 5:00 AM

MCA NashvilleWith his current single “Night’s on Fire” threatening to go top 15 any day, David Nail is enjoying being a new dad to nearly-six-month-old twins and preparing for the release of his new album, Fighter. But the Missouri native remembers a time when things weren’t nearly as good for him and his wife Catherine.

“When I met my wife and I proposed to her, I really naively thought, 'Okay, I know all there is to know about [her], and three or four years into our marriage, we hit a really rough spot,” he reveals. “There were so many moments where I would come home from the road and be like, 'Is this the Sunday morning her car's not in the driveway?'”

Ultimately, it was the way Catherine handled that situation that inspired David to write the title track for his new record.

“Not only was it always in the driveway, but she would literally be in the living room like, 'Hey! We're dealing with this. Head on! I'm here. We're in this for the long haul.' You know, 'We're gonna fight for this!'” he recalls. “So that's what the song is about. It's like, 'I thought I knew everything there was to know about you, but I never knew I had a fighter.'”

To tide fans over until his new project comes out, David recently released his new EP Uncovered, which features his take on four songs by artists ranging from Elvis to Adele to Phil Collins, plus a remake of a track from his first album. His fourth studio effort, Fighter, is due July 15.

Tuesday, 6:00 PM

NBC/David LaChapelleNot only will Blake Shelton be rubbing elbows with some majors stars, he’ll also be rubbing noses -- red noses, that is- - for NBC’s The Red Nose Day Special this Thursday. Blake and legend Elton John will provide the music for the event, along with David Letterman’s longtime bandleader Paul Shaffer.

Red Nose Day was created a quarter-century ago in the United Kingdom, to raise money and awareness for kids in need both at home and around the world. More than 65 celebrities are set to take part in the show, including Julie Roberts, Celine Dion, Connie Britton, Ashton Kutcher, Ellen DeGeneres and Kobe Bryant, just to name a few. You’ll also be able to see the cast of The Walking Dead in a whole new light, as they star in a comedy sketch.

The two-hour special kicks off Thursday night at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
