Following a historic turn on the 49th Annual CMA Awards—where Stapleton became the first artist to win Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the same awards – Traveller became the first album to re-enter the Billboard 200 all-genre album chart at No. 1, where is stayed for two straight weeks. The album went on to win multiple Grammy and ACM Awards and was the #1 selling Country album of 2016 and the fourth-highest selling album of 2016 across all genres. Most recently, Stapleton was nominated for three awards at the 52nd Annual ACM Awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year (“Tennessee Whiskey”) and Video of the Year (“Fire Away”).

Get More details here.

Dustin Lynch is taking over the country music scene and will be headlining Saturday, August 19 at the Allen County Fair. The stats don’t lie. With three consecutive No. 1s, two Top 5 albums, platinum-level sales and back-to back summers on one of the biggest tours in country music, Dustin has been on a steady path toward superstardom. But now with the release of “Seein’ Red,” the Broken Bow recording artist is shifting into high gear.

The show will open with Neal McCoy who’s sold over 6 million records during his historic career in country music. Number one singles include Wink, You Gotta Love That, as well as the popular The Shake and Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On.

Tickets for the Dustin Lynch with Neal McCoy concert go on sale Friday, February 24th at 9:00 am at www.allencofair.com. Box office sales at the fairgrounds and by telephone begin on Tuesday, March 7th at 9:00 am . Ticket prices are $40 for grandstand and bleachers, $50 for the party pit, and $100 for the VIP party pit directly in front of the stage. Prices include service charges, but do not include a gate admission ticket to the Fair, which is required. VISA, Discover, and MasterCard are accepted. 

The first single from Lynch’s current album, “Seein’ Red” is a fist-pumping blast of intensity full of flirtatious heat and tangled-up passion, and the next step in the Tennessee native’s evolution. He’s already been to the top of the charts with traditional country (“Cowboys and Angels”), party-rockers (“Where It’s At (Yep, Yep),” “Hell of a Night”) and simmering romance (“Mind Reader”), now he’s adding raw, animal attraction to the mix. Lynch is building on what he knows and keeping his eyes on the ultimate prize. If “Seein’ Red” is any indication, he won’t have to wait long. “I want to be the ACM and CMA entertainer of the year. … For me now, it’s all about trying to outdo myself.” 

Neal McCoy has released fifteen studio albums on various labels, and has released 34 singles to country radio. He has been on 15 USO Tours around the world and continues to say it’s one of the achievements he’s most proud of. The two-time Entertainer of the Year will provide his customary high energy performance for concert fans to enjoy.

More about the show: 

Inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, TORUK – The First Flight transports you to the world of Pandora in a visually stunning live setting. Experience a storytelling odyssey through a new world of imagination, discovery, and possibility. 

 

Through a riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and “makes the bond” between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination. 

 

This live immersive experience also bears the distinct signature of directors and multimedia innovators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon. It is a living ode to the Na’vi’s symbiotic coexistence with nature and their belief in the basic interconnectedness of all living things. 

 

Narrated by a “Na’vi Storyteller” and populated by unforgettable characters, TORUK – The First Flight is a mythical tale set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film AVATAR, and before any humans ever set foot on Pandora. 

 

When a natural catastrophe threatens to destroy the sacred Tree of Souls, Ralu and Entu, two Omatikaya boys on the brink of adulthood, fearlessly decide to take matters into their own hands. Upon learning that Toruk can help them save the Tree of Souls, they set out, together with their newfound 

friend Tsyal, on a quest high up in the Floating Mountains to find the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Prophecy is fulfilled when a pure soul rises among the clans to ride Toruk for the first time and save the Na’vi from a terrible fate.

Was there a hidden political message in Lady Gaga's Super Bowl performance?

Lady Gaga’s Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show performance had everything: glitz, drones, killer choreography, star power and possibly, a hidden political message you may have missed.

>> Read more trending stories 

>> For complete coverage of Super Bowl 2017, click here    Prior to Sunday’s big game, Gaga said in a press conference that the only statements she planned on making during her halftime show were the ones she has been true to throughout her career.

“I believe in a passion for inclusion. I believe in the spirit of equality and the spirit of this country as one of love, and compassion, and kindness,” Gaga said. “My performance will uphold those philosophies.”

When the performance rolled around, several news outlets reported the singer stayed clear of politics during the show and social media users applauded her for leaving politics out of it.

It was Gaga’s decision to include “This Land Is Your Land” after opening with Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America.” 

According to the Washington Post, the song was originally considered a “sarcastic protest song” by legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie, who grew up during the Great Depression.

Ironically, the song came about in the late 1930s as a retort to Berlin’s “God Bless America,” which played so often on the radio that it irritated Guthrie, because it seemed to ignore the uneven distribution of wealth in America at the time.

According to NPR, Guthrie originally (and sarcastically) called the song "God Blessed America for Me" before renaming it "This Land Is Your Land." 

The original words to the song included this verse:

There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me. The sign was painted, said 'Private Property.' But on the backside, it didn't say nothing.  This land was made for you and me.

And this one:

One bright sunny morning in the shadow of the steeple, by the relief office I saw my people. As they stood hungry, I stood there wondering if God blessed America for me.

Here’s the 1944 recording, which includes the former verse:

According to NPR, Guthrie’s daughter, Nora, suspected the latter verse was left out of the original recording because of  the government’s “strong-armed reaction to such divisive art” during the early ‘50s.

But the version of “This Land is Your Land” Americans know so well doesn’t contain any of these verses.

And Gaga didn’t sing either last night.

But it’s possible her decision to sing “This Land is Your Land” carried a political message in response to President Donald Trump’s recent executive actions, including a travel ban on citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries and a border wall with Mexico.

Super Bowl: 3 reasons why Lady Gaga's halftime performance will make history

Gaga is just one of those artists you can’t NOT care about.

She’s always changing, always expressing herself through fashion and performance. And she never hesitates to break the status quo. Because of who she is, who she loves and how she communicates with the world, her life — as the public sees it — has become pure art. 

All of this was made even more obvious through her half-time performance at Super Bowl 51. If you missed it, you missed out, but thanks to the NFL, you can redeem yourself.

WOW. Amazing.@ladygaga's #PepsiHalftime Show!#SB51 https://t.co/z9vCKRBKkC— NFL (@NFL) February 6, 2017

With nothing bad to say about her 13 minutes at the Super Bowl, the better question is: What did I love the most?

1. Her tummy

No, seriously. She has a pooch. I know, I know. She’s not overweight, or even sloppy. So why am I mentioning her stomach at all? Because we’re living in a day where young girls and grown women compare themselves to the body types of Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner and Beyonce every single day. The “Born This Way” babe showed her imperfect-says-society tummy tonight, and not only did I think it was important, I thought it was empowering.

2. She was winded

Sounds like I’m hating, but trust, I’m not. She BLEW, okay? Like she really sang with all her might — and with little help. She jumped off a roof and danced like a maniac but still managed to fit in an angelic “Hi Mom, Hi Dad” during her flawless and passionate piano solo of “Million Reasons.” She proved she’s a real person. 

3. The crowd of lights

The technology during the show had my eyes glued to the screen. I mean, a third of her lighting was from actual people holding lights and executing choreography with their hands and arms. Her performance was inclusive of so many people, not just her little monsters. She never leaves anyone out. 

This performance will go down as one of the best Super Bowl halftime performances ever.
