DARIUS RUCKER brought in LADY ANTEBELLUM to sing on his next album. They join Darius on a cover of "Wagon Wheel" by OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW. No word on a release date for the new album. (--Here's Darius and Lady Antebellum performing a live version of it last Friday at the Grand Ole Opry. And actually, "Wagon Wheel" was an unfinished 1973 demo by BOB DYLAN, before Old Crow Medicine Show finished it in 2004.)
PISTOL ANNIES have dropped a video for their song "Takin' Pills". I like it . . . but mostly because they're wearing shorts and skirts and they're hot.
For some reason, KEITH URBAN decided to torture the crowd at Country Fest in Wisconsin . . . by performing a cover of the CARLY RAE JEPSEN song "Call Me Maybe". (--Enjoy. Or don't.)
