Since finding success in country music, Jason Aldean and his family are now enjoying life on a farm just outside of Nashville, and it's the perfect place for his newly acquired "Big Green Tractor." Jason admits that the barn on his property has a bit more of a party atmosphere than most barns in Tennessee:
"The barn has been transformed into a night club now. I got my bar in and all the liquor in there and... [I] don't have it completely finished. I gotta get, you know, a pool table and a card table for some poker and, you know, some stuff like that. But for the most part it's cool. I got music, TV, beer and liquor, so we're good."
Country fans are in for a treat with these four amazing new talents to add to the country roster. Jason Sturgeon, Laura Bell Bundy, Brantley Gilbert, and The Band Perry have already made an impact in 2010 for country music. All having singles played on radio, a few even climbing the charts, and ALL have GREAT new videos to add to Yallwire!!
Jason Sturgeon sings about “Simple Life” because Jason is from a small town in Indiana. Sturgeon grew up in a family of coal miners, oilmen and farmers who literally made their living off the land, and still do to this day. He is currently on a radio tour and has made stops this year at CRS & ACM’s in Vegas. Just ask him about the penny slots at 4am.:)
Laura Bell Bundy is far from new to the spotlight. Spending years on Broadway for hits like Hairspray and Legally Blonde this blonde bombshell is cracking us all up with her hilarious interviewing antics! “Giddy On Up” is her hit off her album Achin' and Shakin,’ and which is a clever double disc album. Achin’ is a collection of slow and sultry country songs and Shakin’ is a group of sassy songs that are equal parts humor, confidence and attitude. She truly is one of a kind.
Brantley Gilbert from Jefferson, Georgia is not only making his debut into country but probably into MANY females’ hearts. One of the newest videos added to Yallwire “Kickin it In the Sticks” is of course country, but has some sexy rockin’ roll edge. Gilbert is currently on tour through the southern states.
The Band Perry is composed of siblings Kimberly Perry, Reid Perry, and Neil Perry. They currently released “Hip to My Heart,” which debuted at #52 and is STILL climbing! Making a major impact at radio fans can only expect more from this country family. Yallwire currently published the video “Hip to My Heart”, and we have a feeling this one will be on top of the Yallwirevideo chart VERY soon.
Faith Hill, who was a guest judge on the finale of this season's Project Runway, is not only interested in just judging fashion; she has her eyes set on designing fashion, with the idea of making clothes for working moms like her. She tells UK's The Press Association, "If the right opportunity presents itself, I can guarantee you it would be my passion, and I would put my heart and soul into making it the best it could possibly be. I would design for the women I know and their kids ...busy moms with great style."
Faith says she felt a bit of a bond with the designers on the show. She reveals,"I have always paid close attention to detail in my work, and I understand and relate to big dreams and hard work. Fortunately, those things served me well while focusing on each designer. It was actually quite natural for me." Hill adds, "When it came down to the final three, they all had to be at the top of their game. A combination of tailoring, creativity, work ethic, the use of fabric, originality all played a part in the decision for the top spot. I was honored to be a part of such an important show. We were making the decision that could change the lives of these designers." So what about Project Runway host Heidi Klum? Faith says admiringly, "Heidi is a pro. She was a great joy to be around."
