Stagecoach Rocks

INDIO—The definition of country music in 2019 is hard to pinpoint-a perfect example of this evolution was last weekend's Stagecoach Festival, April 26-28, at the Polo Grounds which was the most eclectic Stagecoach ever. Rock stars, superstar DJs and Billy Ray Cyrus playing a hip-hop tune, our notion of what country music is, has changed before our eyes. The headliners were...

Kacey Musgraves Huge Grammy Award Winner

LOS ANGELES—Believe it or not, awards season is starting to wind down. On Sunday, February 10, the 61st annual Grammy Awards were handed out at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Kendrick Lamar Leads Grammy Nominees

HOLLYWOOD—I’m so annoyed with the Recording Academy expanding the list of contenders for Album, Record and Song of the Year from five nominees to eight. I honestly think it’s the stupidest thing in the world. It was done to diversify the list of nominees, but that can be done by diversifying the Recording Academy’s membership.
