Brooke Eden Was Raised for the Spotlight

Shares Childhood Music Memories on CMT’s Next Women of Country Live 

Brooke Eden began cutting her teeth in honky-tonks at an age when most were still going on play dates with pals.
Growing up, the Florida native loved singing with her dad’s country band (he was the drummer). At age five, she started playing honky-tonks with them and her love for the stage took hold.
By age 13, she’d opened for country legends Brooks & Dunn.
Eden told CMT’s Next Women of Country Live that she grew up on “straight-up country,” but found pop radio at age 14. Later in college, the “Diamonds” singer discovered Etta James and then Adele — and her sound was born.
After graduating from the University of Florida, she headed straight to Nashville, where worked and sang at Tootsie’s and eventually snagged a record deal with Broken Bow Records.
Hard work and determination pay off, and Eden is a shining example that truly does sparkle like a diamond.
  

Miranda Lambert and Love + War Take Texas

It's Pinktoberfest in Lindale

You know what sounds good after a day of shopping?
Palo Duro Popcorn — deep fried pickled jalapeños — and then a Trailboss T-Bone and a smooth glass of Woodford Reserve bourbon.
And now that Miranda Lambert’s new Pink Pistol location is opening right by the new Love + War barbeque and music joint, the Cannery in Lindale, Texas is about to become a one-stop shopping/eating/drinking/two-stepping kind of place.
This flagship, hometown Pink Pistol is set to be Lambert’s biggest one yet, with more Miranda-ized merchandise and plenty of other Texas must-haves. The store will also have the legendary old fashioned soda fountain, three photo booths and a big screen slideshow.
Grand opening Pinktoberfest festivities will start on October 22nd at 10:00 am, and fans are encouraged to come dressed in pink.
Performances, wine tastings, dog adoptions, a habanero-pepper eating contest and a chili cook off will be happening throughout the day, and country singer/songwriter Charlie Robison will be performing in the evening.
  

Martina McBride: “We Were So Green”

What It Feels Like to be Reckless 

Earlier this year, Martina McBride released her Reckless album.
But long before that, she’d been living up to its name.
In a recent radio interview, McBride revealed that she’s done some things in her life that could be considered reckless (Although probably not as senseless and jumping all the fences and abandoning all the rules and crashing like a fool, like the song says).
“I grew up in a tiny, little town of about 180 people in Kansas,” McBride said. “There was certainly nobody around me who wanted to do what I wanted to do. So I had nobody to look to for advice on how to make it in the music business.”
She married her husband — sound engineer John McBride — in 1988, and they moved to Nashville the next year.
“My husband and I were newlyweds. We’d been married for about a year. We just picked up everything and moved to Nashville and didn’t know a soul here and just got towork. We were so green,” she admits.
They had no idea what they were doing, and no plan to fall back on.
“I look back on that now and it felt so right at the time and it obviously was right, but I look back on it and think, ‘How crazy was that?’
“It was just a reckless desire to be in this business and to try to make it happen,” she said.

 

  

Blake Shelton: Four Years Later

Looking Back at Highlights From Country Aircheck Interview 
 
In the September issue of industry publication Country Aircheck, there is a special section devoted to looking back at a decade of some of the best interviews the magazine has done.
Like the one from December 2012 with Blake Shelton.
“More than anything I worry about losing my spot in country music because that is easily the most important thing in the world to me when it comes to my career,” Shelton said. “And when it comes to my personal life, even.”
That was four years ago, right after he’d joined The Voice and two and a half years before he and Miranda Lambert divorced.
“God dang it, country music is my heart,” he said.
“That’s always the thing that has been in the back of my mind. Am I spending too much time with television?
“But the CMAs this year shook me up a little bit with the entertainer award,” he said of being named the Country Music Association’s 2012 entertainer of the year.


  

Cam Marries Adam Weaver in California

Best Wishes to the Newlyweds 
 
Over the weekend, Cam and Adam Weaver were married in Joshua Tree, California.
According to People magazine, Saturday’s (Sept. 24) ceremony was intimate, with about 140 guests and a Mexican-inspired theme.

 Cam, Adam Weaver 
Congratulations from all of us here at RaiderCountry.net !
 
When I talked to Cam this summer at the CMT Music Awards, she told me that when she was growing up in California, both she and her sister were committed to finding guys just like their father.
“My dad will get home from work, and he and my mom will go out on the patio and sit next to each other and drink a beer and just agree with each other,” she said. “It’s so cute. They’re really adorable. That’s all I want. I got rocking chairs for me and Adam. And we’ll go out on those chairs and have a drink, just like my mom and dad do.”
Cam’s dress for the big day was a Jenny Packham gown, and while her processional song was a mariachi band playing “Bésame Mucho,” her first dance with her new husband was Miranda Lambert’s “Oklahoma Sky.”
“It’s just one of the most beautiful songs. It has such an atmosphere to it. It just pulls you in and both of us loved it,” she told People.
The couple will be honeymooning in Tokyo and Bali.


  

Kenny Chesney to Receive BMI President’s Award

Kenny Chesney will receive the BMI President’s Award at the 64th annual BMI Country Awards on Nov. 1 at the organization’s Nashville headquarters.
The honor is presented to songwriters who have distinctly and profoundly influenced the entertainment industry with their music. Past recipients include Toni Braxton, Brooks & Dunn, Gloria & Emilio Estefan, Adam Levine, Willie Nelson, P!nk and Pitbull.
Since he signed his first record contract with Capricorn Records 23 years ago, Chesney has accumulated 28 No. 1s and has sold more than 30 million albums. His next studio collection, Cosmic Hallelujah, lands Oct. 28.
Along with Chesney’s President’s Award, the BMI awards for country songwriter, song and publisher of the year will be revealed during the invitation-only event. The night will also honor the songwriters and publishers of 2016’s 50 most-performed songs.
