Keith Urban

Prosecutors have dropped their case against an 18-year-old man accused of raping a 17-year-old girl at a Keith Urban concert outside Boston in July.

The Sun-Chronicle reports the case against Sean Murphy was ended after “extensive” conversations with the girl, who agreed to the decision. Murphy’s lawyers have said the encounter in the lawn area of the venue was consensual. Police say both Murphy and the girl were drinking. Authorities dealt with almost 50 alcohol-related illnesses involving underaged drinkers at the concert.

Lee Ann Womack Goes Back To Roots With New Album

Lee Ann Womack

Lee Ann Womack is finally making the music she wants to make. Lee Ann’s new album is a collection of country covers called “The Way I’m Livin’.”

Lee Ann tells the Associated Press for years she was pressured to produce hits, but once she fulfilled her contract with MCA Nashville, she let out a sigh of relief. She says she had all kinds of music she wanted to make, including with collaborators like roots musician Buddy Miller, but didn’t feel she could do that until now.  Lee Ann says she wanted to create the kind of music she heard on country radio growing up. She put a lot of what she calls “hardcore country music” into the record.

“The Way I’m Livin'” is available NOW!

Dierks Bentley

“I’m still coming down from the high of such an unbelievable last run of shows on the summer leg of this tour,” said Bentley. “The fans in Cincy, Cleveland and Indianapolis were ready to close out their summer in a big way. Then we got back to Nashville, and I was totally blown away by the outpouring of support we got for this year’s ‘Miles & Music.’ This little event we started nine years ago has taken on a life of its own. I feel like I’m just a small part of this thing. It has really become about country music fans and bikers coming together to help our community and those kids. It’s incredible.”

Joining Dierks in the cause were tourmates Jon Pardi and Chris Young.  Kip Moore and Randy Houser also made appearances to entertain the massive crowd.  The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and the crowd was loud, singing along with all the hits from the artists including “Beer Money,” “Boots On,” “Awe Naw,” and of course all of Dierks’ hits.
