5th Album Is A Charm For Breaking Benjamin

7/2/2015 8:56am EDT
Breaking Benjamin Becomes The Latest Musicians To Score First No
2015 must be the year of chart dreams realized – at least for some artists. Not everybody can boast of the chart glory (looking at you Ciara). For Breaking Benjamin, a band on their fifth album, reaching the penthouse on the Billboard 200 had eluded them four times before. Finally, the fifth time proved to be charm and Dark Before Dawn earned the band their first #1 album. The numbers are rock solid, as Dark Before Dawn shows no darkness whatsoever with 141,000 units, most of which were album sales. BB is certainly doing its thing – kudos boys, kudos.

Being the jam-packed week it was...

Review: Kacey Musgraves Nails It On Sophomore Album 'Pageant Bea
Today’s country music is not your father or mother’s country music – that’s an understatement. That said, that’s pretty much across the board of all music, where the changes have been drastic, yet are ultimately are part of a continuous circle that’s generational. That said Grammy-winning country singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves is a traditionalist in a time where being a traditionalist should totally be uncool – have you heard the phrase “Bro country” thrown around? While she should be totally lame, on her sophomore album Pageant Beauty, Musgraves nails it as her throwback sensibility i...

Kacey Musgraves' Stick-On Panties Came Off At CMA Awards
Country singer Kacey Musgrave narrowly avoided an embarrasing wardrobe malfunction at the CMA Awards on Wednesday. Prior to going on stage with Loretta Lynn, she lost her underwear.

The singer, who won "Song of the Year," told reporters in the pressroom: "And just so ya'll know, right before I sang, my panties came off."

Musgraves, who teased her brown hair high circa the 1970s, wore a sequined minidress with sheer side paneling. She wore stick-on panties that refused to stick on.

"They were the stick-on kind, I mean, just look at this dress. They were stuck on, and then they weren't stu...

The Best & Worst Dressed At The CMT Music Awards
Country singers and other stars flocked to Nashville, Tennesse, on Wednesday to celebrate the 2014 CMT Music Awards.

LeAnn Rimes was one of the stand out celebrities on the red carpet. She wore a flowing white dress with a thigh-high split and a plunging neckline.

Carrie Underwood, who won "Video of the Year," looked lovely in a floral patterned gown with a keyhole cutout. Miranda Lambert ("Female Video of the Year") also dazzled in a sequined mini dress that was cinched at the waist with a silver belt.

We were less impressed with "Breakthrough Video of the Year" winner Cassadee Pope, wh...

Lupita Nyong'o
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

We're just as surprised as you are that fashion star Lupita Nyong'o got a spot on the fails. After being one of the best-dressed women during awards season, Lupita wore this bizarre outfit to the Met Gala. It would have been a sexy brown outfit without that green netting on, too. Shame. Check out Lupita and the rest of this week's fails:

2014 Grammy Awards Reactions: The Triumphs And Fails
Another year and another Grammys ceremony has come and passed. As always, there were moments that thrilled while others made me curse under my breath. Luckily, as a music journalist, this guy has learned how to think like the Recording Academy, hence the accuracy of many of my picks this year. Still, even being correct, you have to wonder what the Academy is thinking sometimes. Yes, I’m specifically referencing the fact that Kendrick Lamar was shut out – ridiculous! But here goes nothing examining the awards given.

The Best & Worst Dressed At The 2014 Grammy Awards
The Grammy Awards are music's biggest event of the year, and stars flooded the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, showing off their sexy (and not-so-sexy) looks on the red carpet.

Actress Paula Patton took a risk by wearing a zebra print dress featuring two lion heads growling at her neckline. Robin Thicke's wife got a lot of attention for the dress - but not in a good way. She tops our list of the worst dressed at the 56th annual event.

Pharrell Williams also made quite a statement by showing up in a giant hat, which many compared to the Arby's logo.

But it wasn't all bad. Stars i...

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards Broadcast takes place on Sunday, January 26th.

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

12/9/2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
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...

Review: Kacey Musgraves 'Same Trailer Different Park' - Nothing Revolutionary In Major Label Debut

7/25/2013 9:50pm EDT
Kacey Musgraves – Same Trailer Different Park
If there's someone that Kacey Musgraves ends up channeling it is Taylor Swift. That’s not a compliment. She appears to shoot for Miranda Lambert but ends up as a wannabe-Taylor Swift in all the worst ways. This album, Same Trailer Different Park, is supposed to be well reviewed and all that, but lord knows what all those other reviewers were thinking. This is easily one of the most boring albums of the year with some of the worst pseudo-intellectual lyrics.

Musgraves was a contestant on “Nashville Star” a country version of “American Idol” and placed seventh. It’s not a knock against “Nash...
