Patsy Cline
Late singer Patsy Cline is set to be honored with a special exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee.

The collection will open on August 24th and run through 2013.

Museum director Kyle Young says, "Patsy Cline is an American music icon and perhaps the most accessible artist in country music history. Though s...

Ashton Kutcher Still Defending Himself After Country Music Awards Appearance

April 7th, 2012 5:00pm EDT
Ashton Kucther
Ongoing criticism about his appearance at the Academy of Country Music Awards last Sunday has prompted actor Ashton Kutcher to defend himself again.

The star's cowboy clothing and a Capella rendition of George Strait's "I Cross My Heart" onstage at the Las Vegas ceremony had many stars questioning his motives, with many of country's elite suggesting he shouldn't have been at the event at all.

Others, like Miranda Lambert, who received an award from Kutcher, suggested he was actually mocking the genre.

The actor took to Twitter.com earlier this week to respond to remarks Lambert made, sta...

Unexpected, Untimely And Shocking Deaths In Music

July 1st, 2009 11:15am EDT
Shocking music deaths
Heart attacks. Plane crashes. Car crashes. Drug overdoses. Murder. Over the years, these have become some of the most common causes of the often shocking deaths in the music industry. On a lighter note, some might argue that even ham sandwiches have been involved.

Regardless of the cause, take a look back at these musical icons that have left us way, way, way too soon - yet have left us with legacies that will live on forever. The majority of these deaths, in addition to being sudden and shocking, were in some way either ironic or just completely messed up. Rock on...

25 Surprise Celebrity Deaths That Rocked Us All

April 7th, 2009 9:10am EDT
Natasha Richardson
Actress Natasha Richardson's unexpected death in a skiing accident late last month stunned and saddened the public. The usually overzealous media even seemed to tread lightly, gently reporting a story it never expected to tell. For a culture that values and admires celebrity, the death of vibrant public figures with potential yet to fulfill serves as a harsh reminder that despite glamour, talent and seemingly charmed lives, all of us are mortal. Whether on screens big or small, over the radio airwaves or in bright vivid color on canvas, the sudden passing of an entertainer can feel like the...

Writer's Viewpoint: Disputing An Iconic Song List

January 30th, 2009 2:14pm EST
Beatles
It takes a cataclysmic event to derail Overrated/Underrated from its usual Friday spot. Currently the Oscars have been serving as that disruptive force, but this week interruption comes from the most unlikely source: a sports columnist from the Kansas City Star.

This is because Joe Posnanski has suggested on his blog that we stop voting artists into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame and shift our focus to Hall-Worthy songs. Songs he deems "Iconic". His criterion for including a song on the ballot is that it be "A song that represents a set of beliefs or a way of life. So, I see these s...

A Man's Point Of View: Top 10 Songs Sung By Women In The Rock Era

April 1st, 2008 12:21pm EDT
Janis Joplin
To clarify what the "Rock Era" means, there will be no Etta James, Billie Holiday, or Patsy Cline on this list. Basically, it contains the most moving and powerful songs with female vocalists from the 1960s to the present. Now, before you go calling us guys sexist, it's just a simple fact that men, on average, have less female-centered albums in their collections. Try an informal poll of your own, and you're likely to have the same results.

Why, you may ask? Sometimes it's because dudes don't want to have their man card revoked for owning a Lilith Fair compilation. But there is a...

'Girl In A Coma' Currently On Tour In Europe With 'Morrissey' Takes Time To Talk

February 18th, 2008 9:59am EST
Girl in a Coma
Starpulse recently caught up with the up-and-coming band Girl in a Coma as they opened for Morrissey in Europe. Hailing from San Antonio, GIAC is Nina Diaz on vocals and guitar, sister Phanie Diaz on drums, and Jenn Alva on bass guitar. These girls in a coma took over as the opening act for the remainder of Morrissey's U.S. tour last fall and the entire European leg after that. This coveted gig is only a dream for most bands.

The Girls describe their sound as "melodic punk." That just about nails it. With the opening track "Clumsy Sky" - a song that starts off hushed, then builds ...

Chaka Khan: 'Funk This' In Stores September 25

Chaka Khan
Say the name "Chaka" and most folks in the know instantly think of a woman who has made an indelible and lasting impression on the music scene of the past three decades. First, as the lead singer of the massively successful R&B, funk and pop band Rufus, then as a solo artist in her own right who has influenced an entire generation of female vocalists (think Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Ledisi, Maysa among others). Like Aretha, like Joni, like Tina, a first name will do. For there's only one Chaka, woman of fire, possessed of a powerhouse, unforgettably distinctive trademark vocal style who ...
