It’s not like superstars end up on road trips with supermodels, is it?
Well, yeah, if you’re Taylor Swift that happens, or at least it did this week. Taylor posted a pic on Twitter Wednesday (March 5th) of herself and Karlie Kloss, a Victoria’s Secret supermodel she met during a TV taping last year.
"California here we come...right back where we started from...ROAD TRIP,"Taylor captioned a pic of the two on a giant Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park sign.
Keith Urban‘s love of fashion is helping him expand his name even further than country music and ‘American Idol.’ His admiration for “cool, interesting t-shirts” has inspired the Australian to start his very own T-shirt line! Urban’s personal style isn’t that of the traditional country singer — he is usually seen in a hip and casual shirt paired with a jacket and denim jeans. Now, he wants to help fans build their cool T-shirt collection, too.
“I’ve always loved cool, interesting t-shirts and wanted to share that passion,” the star explains on his new line’s website. “But only if I could do it in a fun, collaborative way — with social impact that can make a difference.”
So that’s just what he did. The ‘Cop Car’ singer partnered with Industrial Revolution II, a “socially responsible garment” manufacturer, as well as Raphael Mazzucco, a Canadian photographer/artist for his new hip shirt collection.

Call it hip-hop . . . call it R&B . . . or, heck, you might even call it country, but to Billy Currington, it's just really good music!!
“I don’t know what you would actually call these songs,” Billy tells in an interview this week as he prepares to embark on his We Are Tonight Tour with supporting acts Brett Eldredge and Chase Rice. “All I know is that I have over 20 songs recorded with [songwriter/producer] Shy Carter. I can’t wait to finish up that project with him and get some of those songs out there so the world can hear them.”

Danielle Bradbery is heading back to school! Starting March 2nd, the country darling will be headlining the Music In Our Schools National Bus Tour, spotlighting the importance of keeping music in high schools. The tour will focus on the benefits of music to students and school communities. Bradbery will address students at each school and perform songs off her self-titled debut record, including the Top 15 hit ‘The Heart of Dixie.’ Bradbery, 17, is the youngest contestant to win NBC’s ‘The Voice’ and knows a thing or two about how important music education and music teachers are for teenagers and communities.
“This is a great way to reach kids my age and show them that the skills they learn in music can help them to be successful in life,” says the newcomer. “Through music, I’ve learned the value of persistence and working hard to make my dreams come true, and I look forward to sharing that with students and others during the tour.”
For the tour, Bradbery has teamed up with Disney Performing Arts and the Give a Note Foundation, part of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), which works to ensure that all children have access to high-quality music education.
