The members of Little Big Town say they may have to "go bus-to-bus" for trick-or-treating tomorrow because they will be in Austin opening for Carrie Underwood. The group is not letting the fact that they'll be working on Halloween spoil their fun. Kimberly Schlapman says she has ordered a duck suit for her daughter Daisy. Phillip Sweet reveals he is going as the "Big Bad Wolf," his wife will dress like "Bo Peep" and their little girl, Penelope, will probably be a little lamb. Karen Fairchild says she and husband Jimi Westbrook haven't chosen their outfits yet, but they may throw a party around the buses and get Carrie to dress up with them. [via AristoMedia]

If you're Taylor Swift, celebrating Halloween without being recognized can be a very difficult task, no matter how great the costume. However, that didn't keep her from trying last year. Taylor explains how she successfully pulled it off: "My best friend and I really wanted to go trick-or-treating because it was our senior year, and everybody goes to this one neighborhood in my hometown. But you know, she's always kind of like, 'You know, Taylor, we can't ever go anywhere with you because it always turns into like a weird frenzy or whatever.' And so what we decided to do was we dressed up like Chewbaccas, like full-on fur suits, like movie quality Chewbacca outfits, and walked around and trick-or-treated and nobody knew it was us and it was the funniest thing." Taylor fans will be excited to know she has just released her new song, "You're Not Sorry," on iTunes. Earlier this week, she got to hold the finished CD for her sophomore album, Fearless, in her hands! It will land in stores November 11.

Two-time Dancing With the Stars champ Julianne Hough's ailment that sent her to the emergency room following last week's show was more than a stomach ache. According to TMZ, she will have minor surgery to remove an ovarian cyst and also have her appendix taken out at the same time (unrelated to the cyst). On her website, Hough does not mention the cyst, but reveals that she suffers from endometriosis, a painful condition caused by the growth of the tissue lining the uterus in other parts of the abdomen. It is found in 5-10 percent of women of reproductive age around the world. Julianne shares that after consulting with her doctor, surgery was recommended. As of press time, there are no details on whether she will remain on the show this season.

Toby Keith tells People magazine that Republican Presidential candidate John McCain's Vice Presidential running mate, Sarah Palin, seduced him into switching his allegiance from the Democratic Party. He claims, "They've run me out of the [Democratic Party]. They don't represent anything I stand for anymore. But there are just as many sickos on the right. That's why I'm not registering Republican. But I don't see things right and left, I see them right and wrong." As for Palin, Toby's a big fan of the VP nominee. He says, "I think she is the best thing in politics at that level I've ever seen. I hate politicians, and she's as far from one as you can get. She's a mother, she's a human being. And I can sympathize with her. She went from being an unknown governor to being on the cover of every magazine." [via AristoMedia]
