Florida Georgia Line Captures Their First No. 1 Spot On Billboard 200

October 23rd, 2014 8:33am EDT
Florida Georgia Line Captures Their First No. 1 Spot On Billboar
For a third week, country rules the top spot of the Billboard 200. Last week it was Jason Aldean’s Old Boots, New Dirt (who settles for #2 this week). This week’s honors go to Florida Georgia Line who sells a strong 197,000 copies of Anything Goes. Anything Goes is the sole album to sell more than 100,000 copies this week and outpaced the second place album by more than 100,000 copies. Guess Tyler and Brian have something to celebrate – as if they weren’t celebrating already.

Even though the numbers continue to stink, there are plenty of new albums being dropped by many notable artis...

Bob Seger Announces New Tour And Album
Bob Seger will be hitting the road with a new album for the first time since 2006 to promote "Ride Out."

Bob Seger
Bob Seger's stolen guitar has been recovered by police following a break-in at the rocker's home last summer.

The Against the Wind hitmaker's Michigan home was burgled in August 2011, and the thieves made off with several of Seger's most prized possessions, including the 1978 Gibson Les Paul featured on the cover of his Greatest Hits album.

They also stole sneakers autographed by sports legend Shaquille O'Neal and a Rolex watch.

On Tuesday cops made a breakthrough in the case and arrested Andrew D. Thompson, who allegedly snagged the items after a party thrown by Seger's teenage daughter...

'American Idol' Recap: The Contestants (& Judges) Disappoint On Movie Night

April 14th, 2011 8:10am EDT
American Idol
I just couldn’t wait to see how they did.

For once, I’m not talking about the contestants. Last night it was the judges’ performance that had me most anxious for the show to begin. After Pia’s exit, they’d been taking a ton of flak from myself and endless other ‘ American Idol’ recappers saying it was finally time for them to toughen up.

And this was the perfect night to test. After weeks and weeks of solid performances all down the line, last night we got our first really consistently bad night from the contestants. A night that totally blew out my restrictive theme theory – because last...

Hall & Oates
When you're a music snob, you have a reputation to uphold. As such, you can't afford to be caught with God awful crappy discs in your collection, or can you? Suddenly, before you know it, you reach an age where you just don't care anymore - think one of your embarrassing aunts dancing to the YMCA at a wedding, looking like a fool, but having the time of her life. The following are some artists that even if you're an indie rocker with impeccable taste, there comes a time where you have to start admitting these guys are good.

AARP Tour: Bands That Shouldn't Be Touring Anymore

Steely Dan
Sometimes it seems like a band just doesn't know when to quit. Just imagine how many times you've heard some classic rock DJ try to pawn off front row tickets to Steely Dan, or how many advertisements you've seen for a free REO Speedwagon show at the naval base followed by fireworks and the Glen Hill retirement community brass band. While I'll admit that the willingness of these groups to play every major outdoor amphitheater each summer showcases their tenacity, it doesn't exactly work wonders for their dignity. After a while, playing to half-empty audiences of drunken suburbanites has to ...

15 Memorable Music Scenes On Film

October 16th, 2007 10:08am EDT
William Shakespeare
As a film junkie and music geek I always look forward to seeing what songs directors will put in certain scenes to create the right mood. Finding the perfect song isn't always easy. The song has to fit that key moment or it could ruin the movie.

Following is a list of songs that have really made a movie scene stand out. I'm sure you will notice two things about me: I love chick flicks and 80's movies. This wasn't an easy task. I found over 50 songs and cut the list down to 15 with a few honorable mentions.

British singer James Morrison Brings His Music To The U.S. March 13; Check Out The First Single

James Morrison
Not only is England's James Morrison the owner of the most charismatic and rootsy soul voice to emerge in recent years, but his songs pack an emotional depth that lets you know they're coming from someplace - and someone - very real. He's got style and substance; honesty and passion, and a debut so strong that he won't be Undiscovered for long.

"I don't wanna be misunderstood," sings James Morrison. "I've got to take this chance and make it into something good."

There's a sense of urgency the 22-year-old U.K. singer/songwriter brings to the music on his debut Interscope Records al...
