Jason Isbell Breaks Silence On Divorce From Amanda Shires

Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Jason Isbell recently spoke publicly for the first time about his divorce from Amanda Shires.

Two months after filing for divorce from his wife, Isbell said told the "Broken Record Podcast," "I think I'm just going to try and be honest in all the ways that I legally can. There's certain things we've agreed not to talk about. But I think I can still manage to tell people who I am and what the truth is from my perspective."

"It's one of those things where not everything that ends was a failure, you know? I think we did a lot of really beautiful things together and I have really fond memories of all of that, and I don't regret any of it, even the hard stuff," he added. "The time will come when the wounds aren't still fresh, the time will come when I'm able to take all this and put it into my work in a way that is honest and true, but makes sense for me."

Isbell married singer-songwriter and violinist Amanda Shires, with whom he had worked on and off for a decade, in February 2013. Their wedding came two days after they finished work on Isbell's solo album, Southeastern. The couple has a daughter.

In February, the news was broken that Isbell had filed for divorce from Shires.

John Fogerty Reacts To Being Pulled From Australian Country Music Festival

John Fogerty Reacts To Being Pulled From Australian Country Music Festival

John Fogerty reacted with surprise to being pulled from an upcoming Australian country music festival.

Country Fest Queensland announced earlier this week that the Creedence Clearwater Revival co-founder had been dropped from its 2024 lineup due to "unforeseen circumstances."

"I was ready to celebrate with you all for my one and only show this year in Australia when the Country Fest Queensland blindsided me yesterday by canceling my appearance," Fogerty wrote on Instagram. "It was posted that I would not be appearing due to unforeseen circumstances. Well, I can tell you, my friends, I was not the reason for the 'unforeseen circumstances.'"

The singer, songwriter and guitarist says he was "ready to come down there and excited to celebrate getting my songs back with all of you."

Country Fest Queensland said in a subsequent statement that negotiations with Fogerty's team "did not reach a final outcome" and ceased on Friday, February 23.

"The matter is now subject to court proceedings in the Supreme Court of Queensland, and is due to be heard in mid March," the statement continued. "Until such time as the proceedings are dealt with, we do not intend to comment further."

Fogerty also shared a video dedicated to his Australian fans in which he plays an acoustic rendition of CCR's "Bad Moon Rising."

"It's a big disappointment what's going on right now," he says in the clip. "Sometimes things get complicated, beyond my grasp anyway."

Reba McEntire Denies 'Clickbait' Rumor She's Leaving 'The Voice'

Reba McEntire has denied the rumor that she is leaving "The Voice," describing the reports as "clickbait."

The sexagenarian country singer, who joined NBC's reality music show as a coach last May, replacing Blake Shelton, is set to continue in that role for the upcoming second season.

But reports have been circulating for a few months that McEntire is "unhappy" as "The Voice" coach and planning to leave the show.

Reba cut short the rumors in a message posted on X, formerly Twitter.

"Please do not click on any articles that say I am leaving The Voice. This is not true," she wrote.

She added, "These are fake websites to lure people in with clickbait where they claim I have a company to sell weight loss gummy products. This is false. I do not sell or promote any type of gummy product."

Emmy auditioned for "American Idol" and impressed judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan with her powerful song "Skinny."

"Growing up, I sang music my entire life," she said as she introduced herself. "I just love writing. I'm 24 years old. Songwriter, I love music. I don't really sing out as much anymore, but growing up I sang on the road with. my grandma's a country singer."

"Who's your grandmother?" Bryan asked. "Loretta Lynn," Emmy replied.

Emmy then gave the judges a tour of the country legend's ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

"My family grew up here, my mom grew up here. This is my meemaw's house," she said. "She's one of the biggest country music singers of all time, but to me she's just my grandma, and growing up on the bus and all that was very normal to me."

All three judges gave Emmy a "yes" vote and she will continue to the next round.

Emmy later said, "I was thinking about my grandma, but I was also like, 'Emmy, she's with you, and now it's your turn.' I think I'm more like her now than whenever I was trying to be like her. I'm really excited."

Tom Petty Tribute Album To Feature Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson & More Country Stars

A new Tom Petty tribute album, titled Petty Country, which is set to arrive later this year on BMLG, will feature Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson and several other country stars.

Chris Stapleton, Marty Stuart, Margo Price, and former Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench are among the other acts that will feature on the upcoming tribute album.

"Petty's southern roots shined through across his songwriting and storytelling," said Dierk Bentley, whose cover of "American Girl" for the tribute album arrived last week. "He might not have ever been considered as country but you can't go into a bar in Nashville without hearing this song. It is one of the greatest songs in a life's work of great American songs."

"I'm convinced the second verse of this song is some of the best singing in the history of any rock or country band because his voice, there's so much angst," Bentley said about picking "American Girl." "You know, it's just his voice has that kind of brokenness to it to begin with, so it's just so, just the emotion behind his voice is just unparalleled."

Petty died at age 66 after an accidental overdose of prescribed medicines on Oct. 2, 2017.

Kenny Chesney Shares 'Thinkin' Bout' From Upcoming Album

Kenny Chesney recently shared another song from his upcoming Album, Born.

The fifteen-song album is set to come out on March 29.

Chesney spoke at length about the latest release from the album, titled, "Thinkin' Bout."

"The hardest part of letting go is actually letting go. All that chemistry, all that intimacy, all that doesn't need to be said is such a big thing... Whatever's wrong, obviously it's not gonna change," Chesney said. "But it gets late, you get thinking - and next thing you know, you're tumbling back into something that just can't be."

"I love this song, because it gets into that space where you're thinking about knowing you shouldn't do this, shouldn't think about that person, and that's when maybe the letting go can really start to happen no matter how good it feels or how much you make each other laugh," he added.

"Take Her Home," the lead track, and "Just To Say We Did" are the two other songs from Born that Chesney has already shared.

Fans who purchase tickets to Chesney's current Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour will receive an email with a link to buy the special Born Tour Edition with three extra live tracks.
