BBR Music GroupIf you’ve never heard Joe Nichols do his version of “Baby Got Back,” you’ll get your chance on July 28.

The concert-favorite is one of twelve tracks on his ninth studio album, Never Gets Old. While Joe’s been delivering his live take on Sir-Mix-A-Lot‘s bootylicious 1992 rap hit on stage, this is the first time he’s recorded it, with an assist from comedian Darren Knight.

Rick Diamond/Getty Images for Country Music Hall of Fame and MuseumDressed in a head-to-toe, gold, bell-bottomed pantsuit, Shania Twain was especially contemplative as she spoke about her new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Tuesday evening.

Nervous and excited, Shania remembered the late Norro Wilson — the producer who recently passed away who helped create her first album — and pondered how far she’d come, and what she’d missed in her absence.

“What I longed for a lot was just getting reacquainted — reunited, I guess is a better word — with my largest group of supporters, …read more

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images via ABCThere’s no stopping Sam Hunt’s hit “Body Like a Back Road.” This week, the tune marks its twentieth week atop Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart… and that makes history.

Sam will have to make it to 25 weeks to break the overall record, though. Florida Georgia Line set that one in 2012-13, when “Cruise” spent 24 weeks in the top …read more
