TAYLOR SWIFT'S SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS HACKED
Threatened With Nude Photo Leak
Taylor Swift Fires Back at Her Hackers
NASHVILLE, TENN January 27, 2015 - Pshhh, what nudes? Taylor Swift's social media accounts were hijacked on Tuesday, Jan. 27, by so-called elite hackers who threatened to release nude photos of the pop superstar in exchange for bitcoins. Swift, however, retorted that there were no naked pics and told the offenders to "have fun" finding any.
The story began early Tuesday when several updates were tweeted from Swift's accounts, instructing her 50 million-plus fans to follow two specific members of the Lizard Squad, @lizzard and @veriuser. The Lizard Squad is a group of hackers who claimed they were behind North Korea's Internet shutdown amidst the Sony leak scandal. Over the holidays, the same group apparently took down the entire PlayStation and Xbox Live gaming networks. They were also reportedly responsible for Monday evening's temporary Facebook and Instagram issues.
Someone from Swift's team promptly deleted the tweets, but the hackers claimed that they had access to nude photos of the 1989 hitmaker (via The Verge). The accounts @lizzard and @veruser were suspended by Twitter as of Tuesday afternoon. Swift, 25, meanwhile, took to her Tumblr to address the hacking. "My twitter got hacked but don't worry," she wrote to fans. "Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new passwords. Never a dull moment." After her account was unlocked, Swift responded to the intrusion with several lighthearted tweets.
@taylorswift13 - Cause the hackers gonna hack, hack, hack, hack, hack...
@taylorswift13 - I'd like to acknowledge the MVP of the day, @yelyahwilliams, for being the first to text me about the hack this morning. #FriendshipGoals
@taylorswift13 - PS any hackers saying they have 'nudes'? Psssh you'd love that wouldn't you! Have fun photoshopping cause you got NOTHING.

'SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE' GOES A LITTLE BIT COUNTRY
With "The Voice" judge Blake Shelton hosting "Saturday Night Live," it's no surprise the show dipped into the country side of things with the music video "Wishin' Boot." The rather ridiculous song tells the tale of a mystical, beat-up cowboy boot that offers help to those in need — like Ady Bryant's hooker in jail for killing a john. Also, slap a big mustache on Shelton and he looks a heck of a lot like Nick Offerman. WATCH VIDEO:
GARTH BOSTON BROOKS SELLS MORE TICKETS IN BOSTON THEN BONO, U2 OR THE WHO
NASHVILLE, TENN January 26, 2015 - Bono thinks he’s a rock god because he can headline four TD Garden gigs. OK, he is a rock god. But these days country trumps rock, and nobody — not U2 or The Who or Foo Fighters — will sell more tickets in Boston in 2015 than Garth Brooks.
After 17 years away, Brooks began an epic four-night, six-show stand at the Garden Thursday night. Artists away for two decades can be forgotten, but Brooks remains the genre’s best-selling artist and absence has only made his fans’ achy breaky hearts — oops, sorry, wrong ’90s country king — grow fonder. The 52-year-old Oklahoman practically invented modern country, and Thursday night he reminded a packed Garden how he did it. He also brought wife Trisha Yearwood along for help — she dropped in a few of her hits mid-set.
Modern country can be lame and tame and completely cornball. The cliche about a music built on cliches is that the songs have the emotional depth of Hallmark cards. That’s not fair to Hallmark cards. A Hallmark card is over in a second; a Brook’s ballad goes on for four minutes. And last night he slogged knee-deep through noxious cheese on “The Beaches of Cheyenne,” “Unanswered Prayers” and “If Tomorrow Never Comes.”
But Brooks’ legendary energy elevates flat songs — he managed to turn “Two of a Kind, Workin’ on a Full House” from bore to barn-burner. And when he twists a cliche, crams it between a hot fiddle and guitar solo, and adds a huge hook, suddenly his songs fuel an arena rock roadhouse party. Belting out hits with his band flying behind him, Brooks stomped through pop country gold nugget “Papa Loved Mama,” cajun-spiced “Callin’ Baton Rouge” and Aerosmith’s “Fever” (not a nod to Boston, he’s done it a hundred times).
And he had so much damn fun doing it. The man’s played the glorious, incomparable “Friends In Low Places” at every show since 1990 and he still loves it, maybe because everybody still loves it. Oh, c’mon, you know you do. UPCOMING DATES: Garth & Trisha in Buffalo, NY March 5-6-7-8, Denver March 18-19-20-21-22 and 24.

SHANIA TWAIN UNVEILS NEW CD/DVD PACKAGE
STILL THE ONE LIVE FROM VEGAS IS FIRST ALBUM SINCE 2004
NASHVILLE, TENN January 28, 2015 - Shania Twain has announced a new live album and DVD package, Shania: Still the One Live From Vegas, to be released on March 3. Her first album since 2004’s Greatest Hits, the project follows Twain’s two-year run of shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, which wrapped up in December. There the legendary singer staged a return to live performance, working her hits into a lavish production featuring a 13-piece band, dancers, trained horses, a flying motorcycle and plenty of Vegas flash.
Shania: Still the One Live From Vegas captures the entire Las Vegas show, plus over an hour of behind-the-scenes footage uncovering Twain’s planning, design and rehearsal process leading up to her return to the stage.
“This show has been my labor of love for over three years,” Twain said in a press release. “It has meant so much to me and was such a privilege to live out my visions on that stage, and it is so exciting to now get to share the whole experience with the fans all over the world!”
Twain’s last studio album was 2002’s Up!, and a new studio effort has been in the works since 2011. During a break from her Las Vegas shows in 2013, Twain revealed she was still working on the new project. Still the One Live From Vegas will be available exclusively at Walmart. SHANIATWAIN.COM
OFFICER'S DASHCAM RECORDS EPIC FOOTAGE OF HIM JAMMING
TO TAYLOR SWIFT'S "SHAKE IT OFF"
NASHVILLE, TENN January 22, 2015 - Last Friday, the Dover Police Department released the above video of one of their officers singing along to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” The magic moment happened to be captured by the officer’s car dashcam. With all the (well-deserved) bad headlines about cops, we thought it just wouldn’t be right unless we posted this up, too. Besides, how could we not?
“While reviewing dashcam footage, we come across some interesting sights to say the least,” remarked the police department, via Facebook. “We decided we would share some with you…We hope you enjoy this…and Taylor Swift, if you’re watching…we’re sorry.”
TAYLOR SWIFT IS LOVING IT!
The officer was later identified as an Officer Davis, and it seems he’s quite the Swiftie. Taylor has even tweeted her approval:

MEGHAN TRAINOR REPLACES TAYLOR SWIFT AT NUMBER ONE ON BILLBOARD 200 CHART
NASHVILLE, TENN January 22, 2015 - These past several months have been great for Meghan Trainor. Besides releasing the Grammy-nominated “All About That Bass,” Ms. Trainor has also debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart, replacing Taylor Swift who held the top spot for several weeks. Meghan Trainor’s debut album has received wide variety of positive and negative reviews. USA Today gave Title a mixed review, but noted Trainor’s strengths.
“Trainor is at her most appealing when she doesn’t try to be sly or subversive. Her yearning soprano is a perfect match for guest John Legend’s silky voice and presence on ‘Like I’m Going to Lose You.’ Alone again on ‘Close Your Eyes,’ Trainor sings, ‘I know I’m beautiful’— and doesn’t ask for any male affirmation. It’s enough, for once, that she believes in herself.”
Meghan Trainor may want to tell her critics that her single, “Lips Are Movin,” is her second straight top five hit on Billboard‘s Hot 100. Not bad for a singer some folks love to criticize. But how long will Trainor keep Taylor Swift out of the number one spot? Trainor sold about twice as many albums this past week as Taylor Swift, but Swift just released her new single “Style,” and it has received excellent reviews. FDRMX believes “Style” will be another number one hit.

TAYLOR SWIFT GIVES FAN $1,989 CHECK FOR STUDENT LOANS
NASHVILLE, TENN January 14, 2015 - Not all of Taylor Swift’s friends stand next to her at the Grammys! The pop star, 25, has cultivated a rich network of devoted fans and pals on tumblr, where she frequently responds to fan videos and posts. One such friend is Rebekah Bortniker, whose profile, thatcheshirecatsmile, is a virtual shrine to Swift, her cats, and her style. It all started when Bortniker posted a video of the former country star and her celebrity pals to the theme song of Friends. To repay her follower, Swift sent Bortniker a giant box of personalized presents.
The devoted tumblr blogger posted a video of her opening up the gifts, as well as photos of each individual item. First she opened Swift’s handwritten card, dated Sunday, Jan. 11. “Hi you. I was thinking about you today, and how you have been there cheering me on in the most thoughtful and creative ways,” Swift wrote. “I love the video you made of me and my friends, and your text posts always crack me up or make me think. I got out my paints for the first time in a while today and made you something I really really really really hope you like it. I’m not a good painter but I think you’re so beautiful and positive, even though you’re dealing with the stress life brings, so I wanted to make you something.”
Bortniker, who goes by Beks, then opened a polaroid of Swift painting, the actual artwork she made for her, a necklace of Swift’s with the tag “Was mine, now yours,” and most moving of all, a check for $1,989. The tag for the check read, “Rebekah, now you’re $1989 closer to paying off those student loans.” An emotional Bortniker openly cried as her mom filmed the touching reaction.

NASHVILLE SAYS GOODBYE TO LITTLE JIMMY DICKENS
"May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose"_Little Jimmy
Gutiar and boots were on display at Little Jimmy Dickens celebration of life service at the Opry House. Thurs. Jan. 8, 2015, in Nashville, TN.
"His 94-year journey has ended," Paisley said haltingly, his voice cracking. "But we'll take it from here, little buddy."
NASHVILLE, TENN January 9, 2014 - The country music community gathered in Nashville on Thursday to say goodbye to legendary performer Little Jimmy Dickens, and not surprisingly, the focus was on his size: His huge smile and big laugh. His great heart. His enormous sense of humor. His larger-than-life stage personality.
In fact if anything became abundantly clear during the two-hour funeral at the Grand Ole Opry House where Dickens had performed countless times, it was this: His height – all 4 feet 11 inches – was the only thing about Little Jimmy Dickens that was small. Longtime friend and fishing buddy Brad Paisley presided over the public celebration of Dickens's life, and he set the tone at the start.
"There are a few things I know you're not going to hear about Little Jimmy today," Paisley said after placing Dickens's guitar on the stage. "You won't hear somebody say: 'I wish he hadn't taken himself so seriously. I wish he'd made more friends. I wish he'd taken more chances. I wish he'd enjoyed his life more. I wish he'd found true love. I wish he'd treated people better. I wish he was taller.' "
The line drew applause among the several hundred friends, family members, and fans who had gathered. "I don't think any of us wished he was taller," Paisley added. "He was exactly the size he needed to be. And I, for one, don't want to live in a world of Big Jim Dickens."
The Country Music Hall of Famer last performed on the Opry stage on Dec. 20, a day after his 94th birthday. After suffering a stroke on Christmas Day, he died from cardiac arrest in a Nashville hospital on Jan. 2.
Carrie Underwood performed a tribute to Little Jimmy Dickens at his funeral in Nashville Thursday.
Among the country luminaries who came to mourn their friend were Carrie Underwood, Vince Gill, Bill Anderson, Ricky Skaggs, Lee Greenwood, Marty Stuart, Opry legends Jean Howard and Jeannie Seely and Nashville cast members Charles Esten, Sam Palladio and Chaley Rose.
Solemn salute: Dickens' remembrance service concluded with a teary Brad Paisley leading Gill, Underwood, Steve Wariner, Connie Smith, and The Old Crow Medicine Show with a rendition of Will the Circle Be Unbroken.
As the service neared its end, Underwood joined fellow Opry member Gill for a duet of Gill's anthem "Go Rest High on That Mountain." Gill performed on a guitar he now owns that once belonged to Jabbo Arrington, an original member of Dickens's band. God Speed little buddy.
