Chris Stapleton surprises fans at Madison Square Garden during Pink concert

No Comments

ABC/Mark Levine Chris Stapleton surprised the crowd at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night, showing up to sing his new duet “Love Me Anyway” during Pink’s concert.

The pop star started the intimate ballad onstage in a flood of spotlights with only a piano and a couple string players. Later, the audience erupted in applause as the CMA Male Vocalist of the Year walked on to harmonize with her.

After the song was over, Pink hugged Chris and fell to the floor in mock worship as he exited.

“One of my absolute favorite songwriters, favorite voice, and person. Chris Stapleton,” Pink wrote on Instagram following the performance. “What an absolute honor to share a stage with you my friend.”

You’ll find “Love Me Anyway” on Pink’s new Hurts 2B Human album. You can check out fan video of the Madison Square Garden performance on YouTube now.

Jimmie Allen gives it his "Best Shot" with a magic wand in new "Make Me Want To" video

No Comments

Broken BowJimmie Allen’s new video for “Make Me Want To” starts with an elderly woman giving him a magic wand to repay an act of kindness. From there, the unpredictable plot only thickens in the clip designed to show off the singer’s “quirky side.”

“I’m a huge fan of Disney, Harry Potter and The Notebook,” Jimmie tells CMT. “I wanted to create a video that showcased my love for all three.”  

Along the way, the “Best Shot” hitmaker magically changes his living situation and his wheels, and even finds love in a juice bar.

And Jimmie warns there’s more on the way.

“Enjoy Chapter 1!” he teases. “This is the first of a five-part music video collection.”

“Thanks to everyone for going on this journey with me and stay tuned for more!” he adds.

“Make Me Want To” is the second single from Jimmie’s Mercury Lane album. You can check out the new video on YouTube now.

No Comments

Capitol NashvilleCarrie Underwood’s not the only one taking advantage of her tricked-out mobile gym on the Cry Pretty Tour: her husband, former hockey player Mike Fisher is using it to work out, too.

The “Southbound” singer shared a photo of the two getting their fitness on in the gym-on-wheels on Wednesday, adding the caption, “Better together!”

She also included the hashtag #StayThePath, which appears to be written on the trailer’s floor. In the picture, Carrie’s on the ground combining a plank with some arm and back work, while Mike’s standing in the background doing some dumbbell curls.

In addition to plenty of free weights, a treadmill, and an elliptical machine, the mobile gym is also trimmed in pink neon, one of the signature colors of Carrie’s Cry Pretty album and tour.

Right now, Carrie, Maddie & Tae, and Runaway June are in the middle of a run in Mike’s native Canada. They’ll play Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on Friday, before heading for Winnipeg, Manitoba on Sunday.
