Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert Turn Down Las Vegas Gig

Blake Shelton  & Miranda Lambert

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have turned down a $1 million gig in Las Vegas. According to TMZ, the couple was offered one million smackers to play a weekend at Caesar’s Palace. Blake and Miranda countered with $1.25 million, and Caesar thought that was too steep a price to pay.

If the couple had said yes, they would’ve joined the likes of Garth, Shania, and Tim & Faith in the Las Vegas lights.

Keith Urban & Song Writers Celebrate “We Were Us” Success

Yesterday, Keith Urban and “We Were Us” writers Jimmy Robbins, Jon Nite, and Nicolle Galyon gathered with friends and family at a posh bar in Nashville to celebrate the tune hitting number 1 on the charts. This was the first #1 song for Nicolle and Jon, and it almost didn’t happen. It turns out two massive super stars like Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert performing a duet doesn’t make chart success a sure thing.

It turns out there’s a lot involved in getting a song to the top…Not just writing and performing. Lots of promotions, lots of hard work, and a plan. For Nicolle Galyon, she is grateful to God because she knows that this was indeed his master plan.

“My first plane ride was when I was thirteen to Nashville for Fan Fair,” she said, and one of the first performers she saw on that trip was a young and unknown Keith Urban performing in the aisles of Tower Records. “I’ve never forgotten it because I’ve never heard anyone play guitar like that, and I’ve never heard anyone talk like that.” For her, it’s come full circle to be standing next to him with her first number one song plaque in her hand.

From the moment Keith heard “We Were Us,” he had only pictured Miranda Lambert performing it with him. In fact, if it wouldn’t have all come together, the song may not have ever made the radio waves. Unfortunately, Miranda couldn’t attend the party, but she sent her well-wishes via video.

The party topped off with a performance of “We Were Us” with all the writers and Keith playing a part.

From the first informal ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium in the mid-’60s to today’s star-studded LIVE telecast viewed by millions, generations of country’s biggest superstars have graced the Academy of Country Music Awards stage.  Now, in anticipation of the 50th ACM Awards telecast next spring, the Academy has opened its archive for the first time ever to reveal candid, never-before-seen photographs and memorabilia capturing some of the greatest moments in the history of country music. Rich with backstage and performance photographs, compelling behind-the-scenes stories, and firsthand accounts from country legends and contemporary artists, This Is Country: A Backstage Pass to the Academy of Country Music Awards (Insight Editions / $50.00 / September 2014) offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the past, present, and evolution of the Academy.

“It’s an incredible honor to help tell the story of the Academy as well as the stories of the amazing artists and people behind the scenes who have built it over the last 50 years,” said Lee.  “To flip through the pages and watch the show evolve from a Southern California banquet to a network television powerhouse is a sight to behold.”

“It’s been a wonderful experience working with the Academy and Lisa Lee,” said Robbie Schmidt, Insight Editions’ acquisitions editor. “The ACM has an incredibly rich history and we’re excited to offer country music fans this intimate look behind the scenes. A special thank you to the iconic artists whose participation and support made this book possible.”

All of the Academy’s proceeds from sales of the book will go to ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music, dedicated to improving lives through the power of music.  Through partnerships with artists and strong ties in the music industry, ACM Lifting Lives develops and funds music-related therapy and education programs, and serves members of the community who face unexpected hardships through its Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund. Through generous donations and the support of artists and fans, ACM Lifting Lives is able to fund everything from disaster relief and helping communities in need, to music education in schools and music camps for those with disabilities, to supporting programs that use music therapy as a means to help our veterans and wounded warriors, while providing grants to help them ease back into life.  For more details on the book or for more information on ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music, please visit www.ACMcountry.com or www.ACMLiftingLives.org.
