Johnny Cash's new album 'Out Among the Stars' -- EW talks to the country icon's son about unearthing the lost recordings

johnny-cash-among-the-stars.jpg

On March 25, Legacy Recordings will release Out Among the Stars, a “lost” album by Johnny Cash which the singer recorded for Columbia Records in 1984.

So how on earth do you lose an album by a bona fide country icon? Well, it helped that back in the early ‘80s, Cash was not exactly flavor of the month, C&W-wise. “Johnny Cash did not quite fit,” says John Carter Cash, the producer son of Johnny and June Carter Cash. Cash recorded the tracks with producer Billy Sherrill who at the time was the A&R chief at CBS Records Nashville, but even his imprimatur couldn’t get the collection released at the time. “I think he made the record which was correct for Johnny Cash,” says John Carter. “However, Columbia didn’t know what to do with it so this record was literally shelved.”

Watch Taylor Swift's cat-party ACM 'For Your Consideration' video

Taylor-Swift-ACM-clip.jpg

Taylor Swift may have painted the world red in last year’s “For Your Consideration” video for the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACMs) but this year, the singer and her Big Machine label boss Scott Borchetta opted for a sillier approach.

The tongue-in-cheek clip opens with Borchetta realizing that the only thing he has yet to check off on the “Taylor To-Do List” of world domination is create a for-your-consideration ACM video. Borchetta quickly calls Taylor but before he can get a word in, Swift puts him on hold to take care of more pressing matters like painting her nails and pampering her famous kitty-cat, Meredith.

Garth Brooks announces 2014 World Tour plans on 'GMA'

Garth Brooks went on Good Morning America to promote his new box set, Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences, when he decided to add a little something extra: He revealed that he’s heading out on a world tour in 2014.

“You know what, since it’s you and since we’ve had a history forever, let’s announce it. We’re going on a world tour in 2014,” Brooks told Robin Roberts. “I can’t believe I just did that, but you are a doll.”

Now that his youngest daughter is a senior in high school, Brooks says he’s ready to hit the road once again. “All my babies are fine with it. Ms. Yearwood is fine with it.  So now I get to do what I love to do, which is play music.  I get to be with the person I want to be with, which is Ms. Yearwood.”

Watch Carrie Underwood fall on stage and literally miss one note -- VIDEO

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

Kelly Clarkson is the ultimate wedding singer in new 'Tie It Up' video

kelly-clarkson-tie-it-up.jpg

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 goes country on new single, 'Tie It Up': Hear it here!

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.

Watch her performance after the jump:
