Carrie Underwood Shares New Single 'She Doesn't Know'

Carrie Underwood Shares New Single 'She Doesn't Know'

Carrie Underwood recently released "She Don't Know," another song from her upcoming 12-track ninth studio album, Denim & Rhinestones, which is due to arrive on June 10.

In the new song, which she co-wrote with David Garcia and Hilary Lindsey, Underwood calls out the "other woman" and a cheating husband.

"She smiles at me all pretty / Walkin' up to me down aisle five I wave and I smile back / And I can feel her eyes on me / She's checking me out in the checkout line / Cabernet in a paper bag," Underwood sings in the first verse.

"What she don't know is I know what she's been up to/ I bet she thinks she got me played for a fool/ But the joke's on her, in that bed she's lyin' in/ What she don't know, she don't know/ She can have him, she can have him," she sings in the chorus.

Underwood previously released "Ghost Story" along with a music video, "Crazy Angels" and the title track of her upcoming album.

Denim & Rhinestones is Underwood's first country album since releasing Cry Pretty in 2018. Since then, the singer has released several singles and collaborations, including the award-winning "If I Didn't Love You" with Jason Aldean, and shared her holiday album and gospel album.

Kelly Clarkson performed a cover of Joni Mitchell's "River" during the "Kellyoke" segment of "The Kelly Clarkson Show" on Friday, May 20.

"I wish I had a river/I could skate away on," Clarkson crooned, "I'm so hard to handle/I'm selfish and I'm sad/I've gone and lost the best baby/That I ever had."

"River" is a song from Mitchell's 1971 album Blue. Clarkson's latest rendition is one of the countless covers of the song by other prominent artists, including Barry Manilow, Sarah McLachlan, James Taylor, Sam Smith, Judy Collins and Ellie Goulding.

Zac Brown Band's John Driskell Hopkins Diagnosed With ALS

Zac Brown Band's John Driskell Hopkins Diagnosed With ALS

Zac Brown Band bassist and songwriter John Driskell Hopkins has been diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).

Hopkins revealed the news to his fans on YouTube along with his band on Friday, May 20.

"I have tough news to share and my brothers and sister have gathered to support me," he shared in the clip featuring his bandmates, as well as tourmate Caroline Jones. "Over the past several years, I've noticed some balance issues and some stiffness in my hands. After careful analysis by some of the country's top neurologists, I have been diagnosed with ALS."

"Because my symptoms have been slow-progressing from the start, we believe they will continue to be slow progressing going forward. God willing, I plan to be rocking with these amazing people for many years to come," he added.

According to the Mayo Clinic, ALS is a progressive nervous system disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, causing loss of muscle control. ALS is often called Lou Gehrig's disease, after the baseball player who was diagnosed with it.

ALS often begins with muscle twitching and weakness in a limb, or slurred speech. Eventually, ALS affects control of the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe. There is no cure for this fatal disease.

Hopkins also founded the Hop On A Cure foundation to help fund research a cure for ALS. The group encouraged their fans to help "Hop On A Cure" by texting Hop to 345-345 or by visiting http://hoponacure.org.

The Country Music Hall Of Fame has announced that Jerry Lee Lewis, Keith Whitley and Joe Galante will be the 2022 inductees.

The members-elect will be honored during a Medallion Ceremony at the Museum in October, with heartfelt testimonials and once-in-a-lifetime musical tributes.

Rock & roll pioneer Jerry Lee Lewis will be inducted in the Veteran category, while neo-traditionalist Keith Whitley, who helped define country music's new traditionalist resurgence of the 1980s, will join the Hall in the Modern category.

Joe Galante, one of country music's most successful record executives, will become a member in the Nonperforming category.

Jerry Lee Lewis, who began as an explosive rock & roll performer, later became a major country star, with a distinctive and dynamic style as a singer and pianist. Between 1968 and 1981, he had thirty-four Top Twenty country hits.

Influential singer Whitley recorded a dozen Top Twenty solo country singles in five years. His career was cut tragically short at age thirty-four.

RaeLynn Shares Two New Songs 'I Love My Hometown,' 'If God Took Days Off'

RaeLynn Shares Two New Songs 'I Love My Hometown,' 'If God Took Days Off'

Country star RaeLynn recently released two new songs, "I Love My Hometown" and "If God Took Days Off."

"I Love My Hometown," which is an anthem for RaeLynn's hometown of Baytown, Texas, is certain to be loved by those who have pride for their upbringing.

RaeLynn co-wrote "I Love My Hometown" with Corey Crowder, Brian Kelley and Canaan Smith. Crowder produced the track.

"You don't get this in the city / Like you do out in the sticks / You can't get this kind of pretty / 'Bout as real as real can get / Cause we put the good in the good people / We put a ring on the one we love / Always country coming through the speakers / all the roads all filled with trucks / I love my hometown / holdin' it down in my hometown / hometown, holding it down in my hometown," she sings in the chorus of "I Love My Hometown."

"If God Took Days Off," produced by Ben Stennis and Crowder, speaks about how one experiences God's love through another person. The track, written by RaeLynn, Taylor Phillips, Stennis and Cole Taylor, sees the singer wondering what her life would be like if God had taken a few days away from arranging things just as they should be.

"If God took days off, I'd be lost but not in your eyes / This kiss wouldn't get me high / I never would have ever found heaven tonight," RaeLynn sings.

"Y'ALL READY FOR TWO NEW SONGS? This Friday! Cause your girl ain't done singing about hometowns and Jesus," she had teased on social media ahead of the release.

"New year, new tour, new MUSIC! Hope y'all love these new songs as much as I love singing them," RaeLynn announced on Instagram.

"This music is a continuation of where my heart is," she added in a statement on Friday. "I will always love singing about my hometown and good ole Jesus! These songs are super special and only the beginning of what's to come."

Ingrid Andress Releases Personal New Single 'Seeing Someone Else'

Ingrid Andress Releases Personal New Single 'Seeing Someone Else'

Ingrid Andress recently released a new song, "Seeing Someone Else," the second track from her upcoming sophomore album.

Andress co-produced the track with longtime collaborator Sam Ellis. The song, which Andress co-wrote with Derrick Southerland and Jesse Frasure, narrates the story of an individual who's outgrown her existing romantic relationship. Despite still being in love, she knows deep down that staying would be a detriment to both herself and eventually, him.

"I think you're seeing someone else/ I think you're seeing who I used to be/ I bet you wish I was the girl that you met/ Out at a bar, makin' a mess, still 23/ And if you're honest with yourself/ You know you're hanging on the history, yeah, yeah/ You say you're still in love/ But it's so obvious when you look at me/ I think you're seeing someone else/ Woah, woah, yeah/ Woah, woah," the lyrics go.

"We all grow and change, but not everyone wants us to. Some people want to keep you exactly where you are for as long as possible, even if it's hurting you. Sometimes you don't even realize it's happening," Andress wrote on Instagram, introducing the track to fans.

She added, "But then one day you wake up and decide the person they want you to be isn't you anymore, so you pack your sh-t and break free from their grip. I hope this song makes you feel as liberated as I felt when writing it."

"Getting to work with the team to create my own cereal is one of the coolest things I've ever gotten to do," Brown admits. "You can ask my family, but we truly are a big cereal household, and I'm excited for my fans to be able to try it and get to share breakfast with me, too."

Fans can buy a box of Kane Krunch at Wegmans Food Markets or shipped to their homes from Brown's website.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of cereal will benefit Brown's charitable activities, including supporting the United States armed forces, youth and affordable housing initiatives.

"Kane Brown has been a star on the stage for years but now will be a star at the breakfast table," said PLBSE President and CEO Ty Ballou. "Working with Kane and his team on this project to bring the Kane Brown brand to retail has been great, and we continue to be able to support our partners' philanthropic initiatives as well - so it truly is a win-win-win."

Wynonna Judd To Continue Tour In Honor Of Late Mother

Wynonna Judd has announced that she will continue her Fall Tour in honor of late mother, Naomi Judd, who together made The Judds.

Naomi Judd's other daughter Ashley Judd revealed last week that the legendary country music star died of a self-inflicted firearm wound on April 30, just one day before her scheduled induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame along with her other daughter.

Wynonna made the announcement from the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville during "Naomi Judd: A River of Time Celebration," her mother's public memorial service held on Sunday.

"I will continue to sing," she told the crowd of cheering fans. "I made a decision and I decided to share it on national television," Wynonna announced. "After a lot of thought, I am gonna have to honor her and do this tour. I'm just gonna have to. Because that's what you would want."

"Bono once told me, 'Give them what [the fans] want - not what you want,'" an emotionally broken Wynonna continued. "So tonight, as we close I say, 'the show must go on.' As hard as it may be. And we will show up together. You will carry me, as you carried me for 38 years once again because I honestly didn't think I could do it."

Wynonna will perform the Judds' greatest hits during 10 concert dates scheduled as a part of the duo's 2022 Final Tour with Martina McBride.
