At a concert in Texas on Thursday night, Carrie Underwood proved the combination of 5-inch stilettos and a long flowy shirt is dangerous if you’re a singer who stomps for emphasis. Watch her hit the floor in the video below and, well, you can read the headline. Equally impressive: how she handled it afterward on Twitter. Here’s hoping she can feel her toes now (and appreciate how funny it is that she was performing “Undo It” at the time). READ FULL STORY

In a knock-down, drag-out, musical battle royale between Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, who would win?
The answer, obviously, is Kelly Clarkson.
Okay, so maybe Kelly’s wedding reception-ready single “Tie It Up” isn’t going to generate sales as huge as “Roar” or “Applause.” But all the same, the song is bouncy, twangy, and earwormy enough to guarantee a place of honor at plenty of upcoming marriage celebrations. And its cute new video, which splices footage of wedding singer Kelly — flashing her own gorgeous engagement ring — with clips of normal people’s nuptials, is pure feel-good fun. (Yes, a few gay couples get featured; yes, in a perfect world, this wouldn’t be unusual enough to earn a special mention.)
Kelly Clarkson’s dabbled in country before — remember her 2010 duet with Jason Aldean? — but her latest single, the let’s-get-married come-on “Tie It Up,” isn’t dabbling. It’s straight-up country, with a straight-up blues-country beat.
Clarkson sent out the single’s cover art online and then debuted the song at CMA Fest, reportedly telling the audience, “I’ve been nervous all day because I wanted to be good for you!” She shouldn’t have worried: “Tie It Up” is feisty genre fun, while still making room for the typical Clarkson wail. It’s a vision of commitment that’s worth committing to.

Tiny versions of Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran flirt in their new video for 'Everything Has Changed': Watch it here
It’s the classic love story: Boy meets girl on a school bus, boy loses girl, the ’60s happens, girl has boy’s baby, girl dies of AIDS.
Oh, wait — sorry, that’s Forrest Gump. Taylor Swift’s new video for the Ed Sheeran-featuring “Everything Has Changed” video is similar but much more gentle than that, featuring what appears to be child versions of Swift and Sheeran flirting, playing guitar, and getting fake tattoos (Sheeran!) at their quaint little public school in the countryside.
And at the end, viewers finally to get to glimpse the real Swift and Sheeran. See it for yourself below:
Add “building a local fan base” to the list of Things They Do Bigger in Texas.
The Randy Rogers Band may not be as widely known outside their native state as many Nashville-based stars are, but they’re so huge within it that their last two albums debuted at the no. 1 spot on iTunes’ country chart, and at no. 3 and no. 2 respectively on the Billboard US Country chart.
The quintet returns April 30 with their sixth studio album, Trouble, tomorrow (fans who preorder it here get an autographed disc as well as a digital copy), and you can hear the song exclusively here: READ FULL STORY
One year after she pledged to bring teenage leukemia survivor Kevin McGuire to the ACM Awards, Taylor Swift has finally had a chance to make good on her promise. (Kevin couldn’t attend the 2012 ceremony due to a chemo-induced fever, though Swift did give him a heartfelt shout-out in her Entertainer of the Year acceptance speech.) McGuire and his family attended the show in Las Vegas yesterday, after enjoying a private pre-telecast meeting with Swift. No word on whether the singer and her “date” planned their complementary outfits, though. READ FULL STORY
