See, this is where I disagree with Faith Hill. She toldPeople magazine the rumors of her divorce are perplexing. But what she needs to realize is that no one will ever believe you can be good-looking, successful and blissfully happy. People tend to think it's just not natural.
So after one of her recent shows at the Venetian in Las Vegas with her husband Tim McGraw, Hill told the magazine the divorce stories floating around out there were completely untrue.
"[Rumors] seem to be running like crazy right now for some reason," Hill said. "It's perplexing. I don't know why 'happy' can't be a story."
On top of all that insistence that their marriage was super solid, Hill and McGraw reportedly held hands during the interview.
"We've been married 17 years, and since the first week we were married, those things were out," McGraw added. "We don't even think about it. The only time we ever think about it is [when we] worry about the kids. But they've been around it, too, so they laugh it off."
Hill had divorced her first husband of six years -- music publishing executive Daniel Hill -- before she really got to know McGraw when she joined his Spontaneous Combustion tour in 1996. (She'd met McGraw briefly backstage at the annual Country Radio Seminar in Nashville in 1994 when they were part of the New Faces showcase with Toby Keith, Clay Walker and others.) And I remember Hill telling Larry King during an interview years ago that she knew McGraw was the one when they took the stage together.
"It's always been magic from the first time that we performed together onstage," she told King. "We fell in love on that tour and sang together night after night, and it was just beautiful."
Since Carrie Underwood is just 16 days away from her live television broadcast of The Sound of Music, she opened up her diary (of sorts) for the new country special issue of People magazine.
One of the first photos Underwood shared was of her "homework." In this case, it was going to seeCinderella on Broadway.
"I went to go see Cinderella for research (and fun)! I love my homework! We had a blast," she said.
I'm guessing she'll probably have the show's "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?" and "In My Own Little Corner" stuck in her head for months. Rodgers & Hammerstein could really write some catchy tunes.
She also showed off the sunset view from her Manhattan high-rise balcony and a selfie she took at some kind of festival in the city. Then came the parts that Underwood admits are not a few of her favorite things.
"Maria (von Trapp) loves playing guitar, but Carrie doesn't love practicing," she captioned a photo someone snapped of her playing an acoustic guitar. Referring to the black cross-strap shoes and calico circle skirt she wears in the production, she wrote, "I have ... ahem ... GET ... to wear these lovely shoes and skirt over my jeans for the dance scenes. It helps me get used to dancing with a dress on ... and it's totally making a major fashion statement."
I'd give you the links to buy them both, but trust me, this isn't a style worth stealing. No offense to Rodgers, Hammerstein or Underwood.
One of the last photos is of Underwood looking exhausted on a couch.
"All tuckered out after a long day of rehearsals," she writes.
It will all be worth it once the show airs live Dec. 5 on NBC.
George Strait will be joined by a superstar lineup for his final concert taking place June 7, 2014, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The announcement was made Tuesday (Nov. 19).
Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Dunn, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack are scheduled to perform three songs each at the 100,000-seat venue near Dallas. Asleep at the Wheel will open the show.
Tickets for the concert will go on sale Dec. 6 at 10 a.m. CT and can be purchased via Strait's official website.
Strait last year announced plans to retire from touring. He resumes his Cowboy Rides Away tour on Jan. 9 in Bossier City, La. However, he will continue to record for MCA Records and is expected to perform select dates after the tour is completed.
Although Strait's tour will include dates on May 23 at LSU's Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La., and May 31 at Gillette Stadium near Boston, the Arlington show will be the only one with such extensive star power. When the dates for his 2014 tour were revealed in September, it was announced that select shows would feature individual appearances by Aldean, Church, Crow, Dunn, Gill, Lambert, McBride, Womack, Merle Haggard, Little Big Town and Chris Young.
Strait, who was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006, was named entertainer of the year at the recent CMA Awards in Nashville.
His current single, "I Got a Car," is the third release from his 40th album, Love Is Everything. The song was written by Tony Douglas and Keith Gattis.
Motherhood. That is definitely something Kelly Clarkson is going to be thankful for next week -- and every Thanksgiving from now on. She's going to have a baby, she announced Tuesday evening (Nov. 19).
"I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)," she tweeted.
The father is Clarkson's husband Brandon Blackstock, whom she married on Oct. 20 in Walland, Tenn. Remember the details? She wore a Temperley gown, a Swarovski crystal and mother-of-pearl headpiece, her 4.24-carat flawless diamond ring, and she carried sunflowers? Blackstock wore a nice-looking suit, plus the white gold ring Clarkson designed for him. According to People magazine, the ring has six sapphires around it to represent six special things in their lives. Maybe now they'll add a seventh sapphire.
Blackstock is Blake Shelton's manager and the stepson of Reba McEntire. He has two children, Savannah, 12, and Seth, 8, from his previous marriage.
Lately, Clarkson had been dropping serious hints that a baby was on her mind. She told People, "We want to have more children. That's the best part. It's a new chapter in my life."
And when she was on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last week, Clarkson acknowledged she and Blackstock were working on it.
"Practice makes perfect!" she said. "We're trying, trying, trying ... like rabbits. We are not announcing anything right now! We're not, no."
If Clarkson was 100 percent sure of the pregnancy last week, it must have been so difficult for her to keep the good news to herself. But she did admit to Leno that for the first time, she was genuinely into the idea of having a baby. Or more.
"I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five," she said.
