Big Machine Records Head Will Mentor “American Idol” Hopefuls

Scott-Borchett

The man who mentors Taylor Swift will do the same for “American Idol” contestants. Big Machine Records CEO and president Scott Borchetta will serve as mentor for the next season of “Idol.” The “Idol” winner will be signed to Big Machine.

Borchetta’s role has been “re-imagined and stepped up,” as he’ll be with the contestants through the live shows, and has already taken part in the season. Borchetta joined Idol during the Hollywood Week segment of the show, taking a first look at the contestants who he will be advising during the competition.

Its current roster includes Swift, Florida Georgia Line, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, The Band Perry and Brantley Gilbert. Borchetta will mentor while returning judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. pick the next crop of promising performers when American Idol returns on Jan. 8.

Lady Antebellum Gives Fans the Ultimate Experience with Carnival Live Concert

Lady A

Country Music Tattle Tale set sail with Carnival Cruise Lines last week on their biggest and newest ship in their fleet, Carnival Breeze, to welcome country music superstars Lady Antebellum to their Carnival Live Concert Series.

The Carnival Live Concert Series allows guests to indulge in all of the amenities, fun and excitement of a Carnival Cruise with the added benefit to purchase tickets to see some of their favorite artists in a small and intimate theater setting. The Lady Antebellum show proved to be the ultimate experience for fans of all ages. Lady Antbellum turned the 1,349-seat Ovation Theater on board the Carnival Breeze into one of their big stage arena shows belting out both new and old hits. They also serenaded the audience with their version of Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton’s song, “Islands in the Stream.”

Taking advantage of the small and intimate theater Charles Kelly found himself in the middle of hundreds of fans giving high fives and taking selfies.   He also found a cute young lady who he knew just had to meet Hillary. The young fan found herself on stage jumping up and down all while giving Hillary hugs.

This was our second Carnival Live concert, Martina McBride performed earlier this year, and I just have to say…..if you see that one of your favorite artists will be performing with Carnival run to book your tickets now!  Arena and stadium concerts are great but there is nothing better than seeing your favorite artist in a small, intimate setting where you feel as if they are singing directly to you. The Carnival Live Concert series can give you this experience.

Here is how you can get on board a Carnival Cruise for a Carnival Live Concert.

It’s really that easy!

Tickets to the shows cost between $35 and $60 per guest (depending on the band), and VIP tickets are $125–250 per guest. As a VIP, you’ll get some of the best seats to the show, a laminated commemorative VIP pass… plus an exclusive meet-and-greet with the band, including an opportunity for a photo.

There’s no will-call line to wait in, either — tickets will be delivered to your stateroom during your cruise. Seat selections are not assigned, and seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
