Jake Owen: 5 things you learn playing Madison Square Garden for the first time

On Saturday night, country singer Jake Owen made his Madison Square Garden debut as an opener for Jason Aldean’s sold-out show in New York City. “The way I start my show, I come up in an elevator and appear on the top of our set,” he tells EW. “The minute my eyes are over the edge where I could see, I went, ‘Whoa, this is Madison Square Garden.’ You just realize it’ll be really neat to be able to tell my daughter that I just had, and my grandkids, that I was a piece of that building’s history along with names that I admire greatly like Springsteen, Billy Joel, Elton John, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra. For a guy like me that started playing guitar on a bar stool at a little crappy bar in Tallahassee, Florida full of drunk college kids, it’s a pretty big leap.”

Little Big Town's 'Pontoon' cover ropes in a parade of country stars -- VIDEO

You’re not the only one who can’t get Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” out of your head. The country quartet has released a video of fellow stars — including Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, and Miranda Lambert’s Pistol Annies — singing along to the song, which has been on the charts 15 weeks and counting. The takeaway: We’d like to hear Wynonna Judd and Sara Evans cover the song for real. We’re off to watch another video of Luke Bryan dancing. And okay, we’re not the only ones who get that “motorboatin'” imagery in our head (thanks, Scott Wolf and cousin Josh Wolf). READ FULL STORY

CMT Music Awards: Best and worst of the broadcast

The actual winners were announced last night at the CMT Music Awards. But here are a few more honors from the telecast that you should feel free to weigh in on:

Best Overall Performance Willie Nelson assembled an all-star crew to help him sing the hilarious “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.” The ponytailed veteran was joined by Darius Rucker, Toby Keith, Zac Brown, and Jamey Johnson, all of whom looked delighted to be sharing the stage with the legendary toker.

(Honorable Mention Little Big Town, who always sound fantastic, delivered a fun rendition of their summer single “Pontoon.” On a night when A-listers like Kenny Chesney, the Zac Brown Band, and Luke Bryan delivered competent but forgettable performances, theirs might legitimately have earned the quartet a few new listeners. Also, props to Kellie Pickler for her “Motorboatin'” introduction.) READ FULL STORY
