Carrie Underwood Gives Us the ‘See You Again’ Mashup We’ve Been Waiting For!

This is the best thing I have ever seen in my life! Carrie Underwood rapping?! I never thought I would see the day but I am glad that I did just witness that masterpiece! Clearly she isn’t the greatest rapper of all time but how can you not love the effort?

I do have one thing to say, Carrie can sing! Damn Carrie is easily one of the best voices out there, she can sing the roof off of anything!

Carrie Underwood Slays At The CMT Awards!

So I am pretty sure that Carrie Underwood is an angel, like almost 100 percent sure. She is just absolutely perfect, and I don’t throw that perfect word around too much. She is smart, talented, and absolutely stunning! My god I wish I could be her just for a day!

Last night she showed up at the CMT Awards, her first awards show since her baby was born and she slayed the red carpet. Look at her. She just gave birth and damn she looks incredible! Of course her hot hockey husband was on her arm too, nothing like a hot man for an accessory. She also took home the three awards that she was nominated for, and performed.

Carrie is back and I am ready to hear her new music. Who says you can’t be a mom and be absolutely fabulous as well?

Also I love her layered haircut, it is perfect.

Carrie Underwood Shares First Photo Of Her Son!

Tiny hands and tiny feet…God has blessed us with an amazing gift! Isaiah Michael Fisher – born February 27.

Looks like Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher welcomed a beautiful baby boy into this world about four days ago! Everyone was wondering when she would give birth and of course she did it in a more private way than others! She didn’t tell the media, just went and had her child, then shared a little glimpse of the baby when she was ready.

I bet Carrie is an incredible mom, already singing perfect lullabies to the baby. Carrie is an angel, yup I said it!

Congrats to the beautiful couple on their beautiful baby boy!

Carrie Underwood Donates Guitar To Benefit Officer and His K9

A dog may be man’s best friend, but Carrie Underwood may just be a dog’s best friend. The country star has donated an autographed guitar to help pay the medical bills for a K-9 officer in her hometown of Checotah, Oklahoma.

According to the Muskogee Phoenix, Underwood gave the signed guitar in support of Gino, a track, apprehension and narcotics detection dog in the McIntosh County Sheriff’s Department. In December, Gino went to the vet for a simple ear surgery and teeth cleaning when his pre-op blood work revealed he had heart worms from a mosquito bite that summer.

“We’ve been going to vets for months, and we’ll be done with treatment in May,” says Gino’s police partner and owner, Kevin Branscum. “Treatment includes pills and injections. We started a pill which he has to take for 30 days, and he has 120 pills to take.”

Other than the pill regimen, Gino also has to have three medical injections starting in March. Branscum says he’s already spent over $4,000 to care for the police dog. Since Gino is privately owned, the sheriff’s department can’t help with his increasing medical bills. But as the community of Checotah has learned his story, they have rallied around Gino and Branscum to provide support. And that includes their most famous resident.

When Underwood heard Gino and Branscum’s story, she sprang into action to help the ailing pup. The “Something in the Water” singer donated two guitars — one specifically for Gino’s medical bills and one for the Eufaula Fire Department to help raise even more funds.

“I’m grateful,” says Branscum, who’s been teamed up with Gino since 2012. “There’s really no words for it. It’s awesome. Being that she’s from around here makes it even that much more special. I was definitely surprised.”

Branscum may have been surprised, but for anyone who knows Underwood, this is just another example of her love and advocacy for the animal kingdom. In 2011, she funded the establishment of an animal shelter in her hometown, and last January, she posted a hilarious Vine video about getting poop on her shoulder while volunteering.

Alright so I know that the article posted above is longer than the normal ones I post on then write about but I thought that it was pretty important. Let’s just take a minute to not only commend Carrie Underwood for her helping out the officer and his dog, but also thank that officer and dog. A lot of people hate cops lately, and I understand that there are some that probably use their power for evil rather than good. Some cops are good, some are bad, just like everything. So I want to thank the officer for doing what he does, and thank his dog for doing what he does as well.

Let’s be real right now though, I think that Carrie Underwood is an angel. I mean she is easily one of the most adorable celebrities in the world. She can sing her ass off, she donates to charity, oh and she is never really in the media. The only time I can really think about her being in tabloids was when Chace Crawford broke up with her via text, I bet he is regretting that now!

Big kudos to Carrie though for using her celebrity for good. She is a huge animal lover as most of her fans know and she decided to help an animal in need, just such an incredible heart.

Good for you Carrie, it is truly amazing how you have never forgot anything about your hometown. Here’s to hoping that this pup can feel better soon too!

Grammys 2015 – Complete Nominations List

As many people know, the Grammy’s are the biggest night in music and they are being held tonight! I personally can’t wait to watch the red carpet and see some of the catastrophes. I believe that Katy Perry will have something weird on, just a weird prediction. Taylor Swift will wear either a dark blue or a white, and then Justin Bieber will not even be there. Some of my predictions.

Last year I put together a list of who I wanted to win, who I thought was going to win, and who actually won. So right now I will pot all of the nominations, and predict who will win verse who I want to win! The bold will be who I think will win, and the italics will be who I want to win. Last year I did terrible, here’s to hoping I do better this year!

I also didn’t post every category because I know nothing about Latin music, contemporary music, or anything like that, sorry guys.

Album of the Year:
Beyonce: Beyonce
Pharrell: Girl
Ed Sheeran: X
Beck: Morning Phase
Sam Smith: In the Lonely Hour

I love Ed, I think that Ed deserves to win every single award that he is up for but the Grammy’s really love Pharrell. So my pick would be for Ed but I think that Pharrell will win for some strange reason.

Record of the Year:
Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX, “Fancy”
Sia, “Chandelier”
Sam Smith, “Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)”
Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off”
Meghan Trainor, “All About That Bass”

I have a weird soft spot for Meghan Trainor, I truly believe that she is incredible talented. I think that her sophomore album will probably show more of that than her most recent one. She can sing and will blow people’s minds one day. Sia will probably win though because her voice is insane and “Chandelier” is a really incredible song. So if either win I will be extremely happy.

Song of the Year
Meghan Trainor – “All About That Bass”
Sia – “Chandelier”
Taylor Swift – “Shake It Off”
Sam Smith – “Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)”
Hozier – “Take Me to Church”

Hozier will most likely not win, I am aware of that but his voice is absolutely insane. I love ‘Take Me To Church” so much I would listen to that and “Uptown Funk” on repeat for days. I am giving this one to Sia though. Honestly, I don’t care who wins this category because I like them all, I just hope Sam Smith doesn’t take it home, can’t stand him.

Best New Artist
Bastille
Iggy Azalea
Brandy Clark
HAIM
Sam Smith

Can’t lie I am not a huge Iggy fan of Iggy’s music but she deserves to win. She has dealt with people hating on her for absolutely no reason other than the fact she is a white, female rapper from Australia. I must say that I do like her during interviews so she seems fun.

Best Pop Vocal Album
Coldplay, Ghost Stories
Miley Cyrus, Bangerz
Ariana Grande, My Everything
Katy Perry, Prism
Ed Sheeran, x
Sam Smith, In the Lonely Hour

Alright, so I love Bangerz, I think that album was off the chain weird and incredible. Some of Miley’s songs were so heartfelt and incredible, can’t get it enough of it. Do I think the Miley has all the votes to win it? No, probably not, but she was nominated so that is awesome. I think that Sam Smith is going to win because everyone is obsessed with him, I personally hope he fades out after this Grammy hooplah ends.

Best Pop Solo Performance
John Legend, “All of Me (Live Version)”
Sia, “Chandelier”
Sam Smith, “Stay With Me”
Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off”
Pharrell Williams, “Happy”

John Legend deserves this award, the end.

Best Pop Duo/Group Performance
Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX, “Fancy”
Coldplay, “A Sky Full of Stars”
A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, “Say Something”
Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj, “Bang Bang”
Katy Perry feat. Juicy J, “Dark Horse”

I feel like this is going to Iggy’s year to win all the awards, unless she is against Sam Smith then he will win over her. I will say that “Say Something” deserves this Grammy. That song is the saddest song in the world. I could be in the best mood, hear it and then start to cry. That is what music is about right? It is supposed to move you to your core. So I am really rooting that A Great Big World will pull this one off!

Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Cheek to Cheek
Annie Lennox, Nostalgia
Barry Manilow, Night Songs
Johnny Mathis, Sending You a Little Christmas
Barbra Streisand, Partners

I an completely educated in this department. I know Babs is incredible so she will probably win but I love Annie Lennox’s voice, so I am hoping that she wins!

Best Country Album:
Dierks Bentley, Riser
Eric Church, The Outsiders
Lee Ann Womack, The Way I’m Living
Brandy Clark, 12 Stories
Miranda Lambert, Platinum

If Miranda doesn’t win this category I am going to start a riot. Just be prepared for that.

Best Country Solo Performance
Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown”
Hunter Hayes, “Invisible”
Miranda Lambert, “Automatic”
Carrie Underwood, “Something in the Water”
Keith Urban, “Cop Car”

Carrie Underwood deserves this award, she could out sing everyone in this category but my only worry is people against religion. You know she is a very religious woman, the song is extremely religious, I feel like a lot of people would shy away because apparently its controversial. Miranda, you got this one in the bag…I would kind of love Eric Church to win though, I love his music. Honestly, whoever wins this I would be happy!

Best Country Duo/Group Performance
The Band Perry, “Gentle On My Mind”
Miranda Lambert with Carrie Underwood, “Somethin’ Bad”
Little Big Town, “Day Drinking”
Tim McGraw feat. Faith Hill, “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s”
Keith Urban feat. Eric Church, “Raise ‘Em Up”

Miranda and Carrie better win, or again I am going to riot.

Best Country Song
Kenny Chesney, “American Kids”
Miranda Lambert, “Automatic”
Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown”
Glen Campbell, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”
Tim McGraw feat. Faith Hill, “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s”

So I really love the Eric Church song “Give Me Back My Hometown” I feel like a lot of people can relate to it. Tim McGraw is basically a country king so I think that he will take this one home.

Best Urban Contemporary Album:
Jhene Aiko, Sail Out
Beyonce, Beyonce
Chris Brown, X
Mali Music, Mail Is
Pharrell Williams, G I R L

I am saying Pharrell will take this one home. Anyone could win other than Chris Brown. Remember that time Chris Brown beat Rihanna before the Grammy’s then wasn’t allowed there for like three years? Yeah, I do too, fuck Chris Brown.

Best R&B Performance
Beyonce feat. JAY Z, “Drunk in Love”
Chris Brown feat. Usher & Rick Ross, “New Flame”
Jennifer Hudson feat. R. Kelly, “It’s Your World”
Ledisi, “Like This”
Usher, “Good Kisser”

I hated this song but I don’t like any other songs nominated. I mean I guess I hate this song the least out of all of them. I would love to see Usher win but “Good Kisser” was a truly horrible song.

Best Rock Song
Paramore, “Ain’t It Fun”
Beck, “Blue Moon”
The Black Keys, “Fever”
Ryan Adams, “Gimme Something Good”
Jack White, “Lazaretto”

Paramore deserves this! They are a band that went from having a generally small following to being one of the biggest bands in the world. Hayley Williams is perfect, and this song was everywhere. Good luck Paramore!

Best Rap Album
Eminem, The Marshall Mathers LP 2
Childish Gambino, Because the Internet
Iggy Azalea, The New Classic
Common, Nobody’s Smiling
Schoolboy Q, Oxymoron
Wiz Khalifa, Black Hollywood

I would say Eminem deserves to win this but his new music is absolutely horrible, terrible, no good music. Childish Gambino has a very different way about him so I respect his originality. Iggy will win this though and everyone is going to lose their minds.

Best Rap Solo Performance
Childish Gambino – “3005″
Drake – “0 to 100/The Catch Up”
Eminem – “Rap God”
Kendrick Lamar “i”
Lecrae – “All I Need Is You”

I love Kendrick Lamar, I am all in with him on this one.

Best Rap/Sung Collaboration
Common Featuring Jhené Aiko, “Blak Majik”
Eminem feat. Rihanna, “The Monster
I Love Makonnen feat. Drake, “Tuesday”
Schoolboy Q feat. BJ The Chicago Kid, “Studio”
Kanye West & Charlie Wilson, “Bound 2″

Eminem and Rihanna is always gold, Common could win it though, I could see him winning this. If Bound 2 wins I am going to die laughing though. Go Ri though, Rihanna is my girl!

Best Rap Song
Nicki Minaj, “Anaconda”
Kanye West & Charlie Wilson, “Bound 2″
Kendrick Lamar, “I”
Wiz Khalifa, “We Dem Boyz”
Drake – “0 to 100/The Catch Up”

I am rooting for Nicki Minaj just because that song is so weird and bizarre, I like weird and bizarre. Kendrick should win though, I really hope that he does.

Carrie Underwood & Husband Mike Fischer Announce They Are Expecting!

Photo: Carrie Underwood announces her pregnancy with the help of her two dogs: http://onair.rs/1w1gnuM

I am about to sound like a real serious stalker at the moment but I am extremely happy for this couple! Is it weird to say that I have been waiting for this for a while? Probably but I just don’t care! Today on Instagram, Carrie posted this photo of her and her pups announcing that her and her husband of four years Mike Fischer would he expecting a little one of their own. How perfect is this? I mean just look at the adorable little t-shirts that they are wearing!

Truth be told I know that I said that Kelly Clarkson’s child was going to be American royalty but let’s be real. When Carrie has this baby, it will be like Prince George except in the country world. Of  course it probably means that there won’t be any new music any time soon which is a bummer, but hey, she has good reason!

I don’t often get excited about celebrity babies just because let’s be real, being pregnant is kind of boring. Yes you are creating a life which is extremely cool but you can’t do anything fun! No trampolines, no alcohol, and no sushi, just craziness! Maybe she can still record music though? Yeah I am still on that subject in case you were wondering.

Anyway, congrats to the happy couple and I wish them nothing but happiness in the nine months, or however long to come! Thanks for being one of my favorite celebrity couples and being adorable!

Miranda Lambert & Carrie Underwood Drop Music Video For ‘Something Bad’!

I think that we can all agree that this song is going to be a summer anthem for all the females out there who love country music. For the past year or so men have been conquering the country music scene and now it is the ladies turn again! How can you not love this song? It is so simple, so catchy, so good, that simple.

This music video is pretty bad ass too, just Miranda and Carrie causing trouble and robbing banks. They both look really hot here too right? I mean they can both be my woman crush Wednesday and it is only Saturday.

This song will be on repeat for the next month and I will watch the music video daily.

What do you think about the song and video?

Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood Perform ‘Something Bad’ At CMT Awards

Image

Right now in country music it seems like men are at the top of it while women just kind of pop in and out. With big male names like Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and Luke Bryan just to name a few, it seems like not many women have been able to get to the top of the charts. That is just as of right now, not in the past but if last nights CMT Awards proved anything, it was that women were going to take back the country throne.

Last night two country powerhouses Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood took the stage to perform their newest duet ‘Something Bad’ and won the night. In my personal opinion it was the absolute best performance of the night and it seems like the two of them actually get along. This isn’t like the show Nashville, nope, it is a friendship not a rivalry.

With these two incredible voices this song is bound to blow up and potentially be one of the best songs of the summer, just my opinion I guess.

In case you haven’t heard the song the lyric video is posted below!

Ryan Seacrest is begging people to watch American Idol again!

Image

“I will say this to those who have watched the show throughout the years and maybe didn’t watch last year: I ask them to come back and give it another shot this year,” Seacrest told The Hollywood Reporter Friday on the red carpet at the Z100 Jingle Ball 2013 concert at Madison Square Garden. “The judges are so fun, and they are having such a good time, and they get along with each other so well that I think you will see your old American Idol back on the air.”

Please everyone watch American Idol so Ryan Seacrest can keep his job! He is going to be homeless if we don’t watch American Idol! Dude, give it up, please just hang up the microphone. Well, I like his radio show, can’t lie about that but the whole American Idol thing, give it up. That show has become just another punch line even though it is one of the most successful music shows ever. I think it actually is the most successful since it brought out mega stars like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson, and Phillip Phillips just to name a few of the successful people from the show. No one cares about it anymore though, people would rather watch The Voice than watch American Idol, it is a sad truth.

After the fiasco last year with Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and the dog Randy Jackson, it was a hot ass mess. It was just awkward to watch and that was why no one did. They really think that bringing back J.Lo is going to save this program? J.Lo is the biggest wannabe there is! I feel like she always uses how she is different because she is a Latina artist, bitch you aren’t any different. You are Jenny from the block and that is the biggest hit you will ever have, please stop trying.

So no Ryan Seacrest I will not give your American Idol another shot! I can’t do it! The tackiness of this show has hurt me for far too long! Not even the beautiful Keith Urban can make me watch it again! I am sorry to let you down. I will watch you on the Rockin New Years Eve special though!

Carrie couldn’t carry The Sound of Music

Image

Let’s be real, last night most people were watching The Sound of Music remake, not X-Factor, Glee or Grey’s Anatomy. This was going to be a live thing with Carrie Underwood and Vampire Bill. Honestly, I love the original so seeing this done a different way was very interesting. Obviously Carrie Underwood doesn’t hold a candle to Julie Andrews, let’s be real right now. Julie Andrews is a fucking legend and so is Carrie Underwood in her own right, she just isn’t an actress. I will say that Carrie did hold her own as an actress!

One thing that I hated was how out of order all of the songs were, I realize they couldn’t do half of the shit that was done in the movie because it was all on a stage rather than an actual set. The kids were awesome, the Von Trapp boys were still gay as ever which was perfect casting! Then came Vampire Bill. Vampire Bill was still Vampire Bill in this movie, same voice, same stone face, same all that bullshit. Vampire Bill should not have been the lead male, mistake!

All and all though I would give it a solid B, the singing was great, the acting was alright, and the casting was pretty good. I just wish they didn’t make shit so out of order!

Rant over.
