Chris Stapleton Comes Up Big For Second Straight Week

11/17/2015 11:08am EST
Chris Stapleton Makes It Two Weeks Atop The Billboard 200   
Chris Stapleton sure came up – big time. After reentering the Billboard 200 with his critically lauded debut Traveller at number one, Stapleton keeps the top spot warm. Why is this surprising this week? There were several new albums, but none of them had the support to unseat the country singer/songwriter. Interestingly, Stapleton still had a big impact, to the tune of 124,000 units (78% of those were sales).

The newbies also couldn’t take the runner-up spot, with Eric Church’s surprise effort Mr. Misunderstood improving from #3 to #2 despite losing support. Still, with a modest 65,000 uni...

Cee Lo Green Retains Soulfulness And Eccentric Personality On ‘H
What’s the best way for an embattled musician to heal? Release new music. That’s exactly what the once beloved, eccentric Cee Lo Green does on his latest studio album, Heart Blanche. Excluding his 2012 holiday effort, Heart Blanche marks Cee Lo’s first new studio album in five years. A lot has changed since he shocked the world with breakout hit “F**k You,” so can Cee Lo keep it going on Heart Blanche? For the most part, the answer is a resounding yes.

Following the soul-sampling intro, Green is clearly on autopilot. Pop/rock infused opener “Est. 1980s” finds the eclectic musician singing...

12 Celebrities On Santa's 2014 Naughty List
Every year Santa Claus makes a list (and checks it twice) to find out who's been naughty and who's been nice throughout the year, and to help the big man out we've compiled a list of a dozen folks who we think should be expecting a big, fat lump of coal in their stockings this year.

Sure, not every musician sticks to the formula on this list (cough* Justin Bieber), but regardless, all ten performances are definitely ‘something’ if nothing else.

1) Pentatonix featuring Tori Kelly, “Winter Wonderland/ Don’t Worry Be Happy” (That's Christmas To Me, 2014)

Pharrell: 'Happy' Was Originally A Cee Lo Green Song

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though! This year,  I find myself...

That message is clear in the cover art for the photo, which features all four...
