COUNTRY DIRT: STORIES, TRUTHS, FACTS, AND SNIPPETS

JENNIFER NETTLES nailed her performance of “I Want You to Want Me” with CHEAP TRICK during their “CMT Crossroads” taping.  The episode airs March 24th, but you can check out the clip at CMT.com.

KIP MOORE credits his “awful” living space with helping him write “Running for You”.  Quote, “[I] was living in a room with no TVs, no couches, no nothing, just guitar amps and guitars.  It made me stay in that strange place mentally and I remember picking up the guitar and coming up with that melody.”

ERIC CHURCH is not giving up his fight against ticket scalpers.  He canceled orders for 2,700 tickets that scalpers bought to his show at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater in August.

KENNY ROGERS has postponed his show in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the second time.  He was originally supposed to perform there on January 28th, but health issues forced him to move it to April 7th.  And now THAT’S been pushed back to July 14th.  It’s unclear why, but Kenny’s 77 years old, so it could be that he just hasn’t recovered yet.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD explains what drew her to record “Heartbeat”.  Quote, “There’s something that seemed real and conversational about it.  It’s not this over-romanticized, fairytale kind of thing.  It’s like a real conversation . . . [very] tangible and realistic.”

MIRANDA LAMBERT brought ASHLEY MONROE on stage at her show in London and they performed the James Taylor classic “You’ve Got a Friend”.  ((WE WILL SHARE THE VIDEO HERE IN LINK))
