Self-proclaimed "awkward dude" Scotty McCreery has already written a wedding song for his fiancee

No Comments

By Music News Group

Triple TigersIt’s a pretty exciting time to be Scotty McCreery. The American Idol winner has the fastest-moving, highest-charting song of his career so far with “Five More Minutes,” which he wrote about the passing of his grandfather.

There’s also a wedding in the works: Scotty proposed to longtime girlfriend Gabi Dugal last September, during a hike in the North Carolina mountains they called home.

“I knew what I wanted to do,” Scotty says of popping the question. “I am not smooth by any means. I’m an awkward dude! So I think she had a pretty good idea that something was about to happen. It’s a twenty minute hike usually, and Gabi says that I got her there in five to ten minutes, because my heart was just pounding and I was rushing.”

“But it went off without a hitch,” he continues, “and I flew her family in. Some of her family lives in North Carolina, but her sister lives in Oklahoma. She didn’t know that was happening. She lost it, then. It was a special day.”

So, would Scotty ever consider crafting a song for the couple’s ceremony?

“Man, I’ve already written it!” he tells ABC Radio. “I’ve already got this song. I wrote it for Gabi, probably the week before I knew we were getting engaged. And it’s gonna make the record, and who knows? I might sing it for her at the wedding. I’m trying to decide. It’s a pretty important song to me.”

Scotty’s new album — which includes both “Five More Minutes” and the song he wrote for Gabi — comes out March 16. It’s titled Seasons Change.

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

Universal(LOS ANGELES) — Fifty Shades Freed, the third and final film in the racy Fifty Shades franchise, didn’t do as well during its opening weekend as its predecessor, Fifty Shades Darker, but its estimated $38.8 million take in the U.S. was good enough to take the top slot this weekend. Darker, did $46.6 million in its first weekend.

Overseas, Fifty Shades Freed pulled in $98.1 million. With Freed‘s worldwide opening-weekend take, the franchise, based on E.L. James’ erotic novels, now has earned more than $1 billion at the box office.

A decidedly different kind of literary adaptation took second place this weekend, as Peter Rabbit, Sony’s CGI-animated revamp of Beatrix Potter’s tale of a mischievous bunny, took second place with an estimated $25 million in the U.S.

The 15:17 to Paris, Clint Eastwood’s true-life tale of three Americans who thwarted a terrorist attack, starring the actual individuals involved, pulled in an estimated $12.6 million domestically, and $5.3 overseas.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, in its eighth week, continued to perform well, earning an estimated $9.8 million in the U.S., pushing its domestic earnings to date to more than $365 million. Internationally, the movie earned an estimated $7.5 million over the weekend, pushing its overseas earnings above $516 million and its total worldwide earnings to date to $880 million.

The Greatest Showman had a $6.4 million weekend in the U.S., good enough for fifth place. The movie now has earned more than $145 million in the U.S.

Here are the top 10 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated weekend gross ticket sales:

1. Fifty Shades Freed, $38.8 million
2. Peter Rabbit, $25 million
3. The 15:17 to Paris, $12.6 million
4. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, $9.8 million
5. The Greatest Showman, $6.4 million
6. Maze Runner: The Death Cure, $6 million

"Groundhog Day" celebrates 25th anniversary

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

Columbia Pictures/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Twenty-five years ago today, the Bill Murray film Groundhog Day hit theaters, and went on to become an enduring classic that redefined the way we think about the holiday.

In the 1993 movie, Murray plays self-absorbed TV weatherman Phil Connors, who travels to Punxsutawney, PA to report on Groundhog Day and winds up re-living the same day uncountable times, in the process transforming into a better man. It went on to become a classic, regarded by many as one of the prime examples of a smart, existential comedy.

Groundhog Day was directed by the late Harold Ramis and co-starred Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott and Stephen Tobolowsky.

It’s not clear in the film how many times Phil repeats Groundhog Day, but there are many theories. Tobolowsky, who plays annoying insurance salesman Ned Ryerson, told ABC Radio on the movie’s 20th anniversary, “I counted nine days, other people have said it took 100 days, some people have said it took years.”

Tobolowsky noted that Ramis was a Buddhist “and he said the idea in his head was that in Buddhism, for human spirit to elevate to a higher level of consciousness, takes 10,000 years.”

Danny Rubin, who co-wrote Groundhog Day with Ramis, said of the question: “The studio really felt that it should only last about two weeks…because that’s how long it takes to solve a modern-day problem…on a sitcom. I had thought at least more than one lifetime, and they were afraid people’s heads would explode.”

Groundhog Day was adapted into a theatrical musical that had its world premiere at The Old Vic in London in summer 2016. On April 17 of the next year, the production opened at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway.
Many of the movie’s stars attended the show, with Murray famously showing up two nights in a row in August, mirroring the movie’s plot of re-living the same day.

The Broadway show ended September 17, 2017, after 176 performances.
