ABC/Image Group LA Sugarland wowed the audience at this week’s Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, as they reunited to do classics like “Baby Girl,” “All I Wanna Do” and “Stuck Like Glue,” at Wednesday’s Big Machine luncheon.

Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush also played their current single, “Still the Same,” which is the first taste of their new album that’s coming sometime this year.

The two head into the studio to work on the record later this month, and Jennifer expects your first chance to hear more new music will likely be on the road. The Georgia native also assures fans they’ll get to hear the Sugarland tunes they know and love.

“Obviously all the hits that you have enjoyed from Sugarland over the years,” she says, revealing what she and Kristian will play. “And then we’re in the writing process right now and about to go into the studio and so we’ll be playing all the new stuff too. All the hits that you love and all the new stuff that you can dance to.”

Sugarland’s Still the Same Tour kicks off May 4 in Durant, Oklahoma.

"Nashville" recap: "Beneath Still Waters"

No Comments

By Music News Group

CMTOn Thursday night’s new episode of Nashville on CMT, Daphne continues to voice her dislike for Jessie Caine, as the romance progresses between Jessie and Daphne’s stepfather, Deacon Claybourne.

When Deacon invites Jessie over for dinner with her son, it seems Daphne and Jessie will remain at an impasse, until Jessie has an emotional one-on-one talk with the teen. Once Jessie reassures her she’s not out to replace Rayna or take her dad from her, Daphne apologizes, and the two seem to have healed their relationship.

Alannah seems to be a hit with fans of the supergroup formed by Gunnar Scott, Will Lexington and Avery Barkley. While Will is far from sold on the idea of giving the female singer a larger role in the all-male band, Gunnar continues to pursue his romantic inclinations toward her. When Will and Avery find out Gunnar slept with her, they both agree it’s a recipe for trouble. Meanwhile, Jessie’s ex, Brad Maitland, shows up to try to poach Alannah from the band, just to cause trouble for Deacon, the head of their label.

Scarlett O’Connor turns out to see Gunnar’s performance with his new love interest, though Scarlett herself seems to have moved on as well, as she grows increasingly interested in a veteran she meets at the equine retreat.

Find out what happens next on the final season of Nashville, Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on CMT.

"Scandal" recap: "Army of One"

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

ABC/Eric McCandless(NEW YORK) — On the Scandal episode “Army of One,” Liv confronts Mellie about making Jake her new chief-of-staff. Mellie tells Liv it’s not about Jake, it’s about Liv killing President Rashad.

Although Liv tries to defend her actions and insists Mellie change her mind, Mellie stands firm and tells Liv she has to go. Liv reluctantly leaves.

Quinn sees the news report that Liv is out. However, Eli is skeptical and tells Quinn they cannot go after Liv until they know she is no longer in command.

At the White House, Jake shows President Mellie where he runs his covert operations. During his briefing, the place loses its power. Jake knows Liv is behind the outage and calls her. She tells him that she is still in “command.”

Vice President Cyrus meets with Mellie and tells her he’s upset she brought in Jake to replace Liv. Cyrus explains that Jake is just as bad as Liv, but Mellie refuses to fire Jake and sends Cyrus away.

Jake, meanwhile, is being manipulated by Liv. Liv tries to sabotage Jake by leaking the affair that Jake’s wife is having with another man to the press, somehow making it seem like Jake participated in espionage.

Liv later visits Cyrus and tries to enlist him to help her get rid of Jake. But instead, Cyrus comes up with his own plan to try to exonerate Jake in the media. Liv is upset that she’s been played.

Cyrus then visits Liv at home to show her a classified document, which would allow her to take down Mellie. At first, Liv doesn’t take the bait. But she later agrees. Visiting Mellie at her doctor’s appointment, Liv tells Mellie that she is not resigning from her position as chief of staff, but instead calling for Mellie to step down as president – by using the classified information that Cyrus gave to her.

Quinn, who still under Eli’s protection, asks him to let her leave if she promises to spare Liv’s life and not seek revenge against Liv. Eli agrees.

With baby in tow, Quinn leaves, but instead of disappearing, she goes to Liv’s home to confront her. Liv tries to defend her actions to Quinn, but Quinn isn’t buying it. Liv warn Quinn that B613 snipers are guarding her and to be careful brandishing her gun at Liv. However, Quinn doesn’t believe her, until a shot flies through the window. Quinn and the baby are safe, but Liv gets shot in the arm. Quinn runs out.

Liv heads to her father’s house to get patched up. He gives her some fatherly advice.

At the White House, Mellie tells Jake she is going to resign. A few moments later, Liv holds a press conference where — instead of throwing Mellie under the bus, she decides to resign.

At the gladiators’ office, the team watches Liv resign. During this time, Quinn, who they believed was dead, shows up with the baby.
