Mesfin Fekadu, Ap Music Writer Updated 8:07 am PDT, Sunday, April 7, 2019 FILE - In this Feb. 10, 2019 file photo, Kacey Musgraves, winner of the awards for best country album for "Golden Hour", best country song for "Space Cowboy", best country solo performance for "Butterflies" and album of the year for "Golden Hour" poses in the press room at the 61st annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Musgraves made history when she won the 2019 Grammy for album of the year, but there’s one award she won’t win: entertainer of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards. That’s because no women are nominated for the show’s top award Sunday, April 7. Instead, men make up the nominees exclusively with Chris Stapleton, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean.(Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File) less FILE - In this Feb. 10, 2019 file photo, Kacey Musgraves, winner of the awards for best country album for "Golden … [Read more...] about Reba McEntire: Female country stars being overlooked at ACMs

Kelly Clarkson brought the house down at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington D.C. when she sang a rendition of "Fancy" by Reba McEntire, who she paid tribute to as a "really rad grandma." McEntire was honored that evening along with Cher, Philip Glass, Wayne Shorter and Hamilton's creators, and Clarkson became a little emotional as she paid tribute to her famous family member. "I've been a fan of Reba since I was a little girl," the American Idol alumna said. "Her voice has always felt nostalgic for me. Even as an adult, there's something about her tone and her storytelling that just feels like home. Sometimes when we meet our heroes, it doesn't always pan out how you hope. But meeting Reba, being friends with her and eventually becoming family has been one of the highlights of my life, truly." Speaking on a more personal level, Clarkson then started to tear up as she continued to praise her husband's stepmother. Jimmy Fallon and The Roots join "The Voice" coaches Kelly Clarkson, … [Read more...] about Kelly Clarkson Thanks ‘Really Rad Grandma’ Reba at Kennedy Center Honors

The short version: There are an awful lot of good new shows out there on cable, network, and streaming TV, if you know where to find them. You could easily spend the entire holiday week bingeing fine series — Amazon’s “Homecoming,” … [Read more...] about The marathons: They’re going, and going, and going . . .
To see how Reba McEntire became a queen of country music you need to go back to Chockie, Oklahoma, and the lessons learned on her family's ranch. "When we were little, we were working," McEntire told "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell. "Daddy would come in the house and say 'I need a driver while he was putting out hay to cattle.' He said, 'just stay off the rocks. And don't hit a tree.'" By her teens, she was running barrels in the rodeo, but her real gift was always her voice. "My gift from God was singing and daddy would say, 'Get back in there and practice your singing.' And I was like, 'How do you practice singing?' I just would sing. It just came out naturally," she said. Her father, a three-time world champion steer roper, told her once that what he enjoyed about it was competing – it was the "getting there" not the winning – that he loved. "And that's a lot like me when I would just live from award show to award show. I just loved it. I … [Read more...] about Reba McEntire reflects on the tragedies and the triumphs of her 40-year career
