It’s amazing how quickly things can change in life. For underrated country musician Chris Stapleton, he went from unknown to hot commodity thanks to unexpected victories at the Country Music Association Awards. After his album, Traveller debuted at #14 earlier in 2015, this week, Stapleton finds himself at #1 on the Billboard 200. Crazy right? Furthermore, Stapleton made more than a dent on the charts this week, impacting to the tune of 177,000 units, with 86% of those being sales.

So with Stapleton receiving his just due, it also confirms that this week wasn’t a power week in new release...

5 Seconds Of Summer Bests Carrie Underwood

5 Seconds Of Summer Bests Carrie Underwood For No. 1 On Billboar
On the Billboard 200 this week, it was youth that prevailed in a race for the number one spot. In the end, Aussie band 5 Seconds of Summer scored atop the Billboard 200 for a second consecutive time with Sounds Good Feels Good. While Sounds Good Feels Good was unable to top the numbers put up by their 2014 self-titled debut album, the 192,000 units easily trumped the more modest numbers put up by Pentatonix’s chart-topping album last week. Of those 192,000 units, 93% were pure sales.

As disappointing as it may be for the once unstoppable Carrie Underwood to be beat for the top spot, Unde...

Pentatonix Takes The No. 1 Spot On Billboard

Pentatonix Edges Demi Lovato For No. 1 On The Billboard 200
It was a close fight on the Billboard 200 this week – a slugfest – but a cappella darlings Pentatonix came out on top, barely. The self-titled Pentatonix moved 98,000 units, with 90% of those being pure sales. Demi Lovato also moved 98,000 units, though only 79% of those units were pure sales. Neither album ‘blew it out of the park’ with both missing the magical 100,000 units/copies mark, but the numbers are respectable given the current poor sales climate for music.

Examining the sales another way, both Pentatonix and Demi Lovato outperformed new releases by Machine Gun Kelly and The G...

Carrie Underwood Keeps The Stories Captivating On 'Storyteller'
After a three-year hiatus, country sensation Carrie Underwood is back with her fifth studio album, Storyteller. Lots can change in the music industry in the span of three years, hence making it seem like it’s been a lifetime since one of American Idol’s hottest commodities that actually transcended the show released a new album. Despite the break, Underwood proves that her ‘vacation’ didn’t affect her pipes in the least.

Storyteller kicks off with a bang with “Renegade Runaway,” a fierce, driving country-pop record with the intensity of a rock song. Perhaps it’s the aggressive guitars tha...

“I knew that I weighed more than I had ever weighed before,” she revealed to People Magazine.

“But then as soon as you start making little tweaks, people immediately go, ‘You look so great!’ Then you start wondering, ‘How bad did I look before?’ Then it’s like, ‘Well, I guess I should keep on going.’ Then you start eating less," she divulged.

50 Songs To Celebrate The 4th Of July

Ah, the wonderful country that is the United States of America – sigh? What better way to celebrate the great USA than through song? Music moves, and these 50 songs – one for each state – should ‘move’ you. Well, maybe not all of them ‘move’ and maybe not even all are celebratory, but these 50 songs should tickle your fancy and potentially beef up your playlist. There’s also plenty of diversity here – veteran artists, obscurer lesser known artists and a variety of genres. So, here goes nothing!!!

But first, how about a little “Fifty Nifty United States”… “From 13 original colonies!”


Did A Local News Station Forget Carrie Underwood's Name?

6/30/2015 2:12pm EDT
Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood is "Someone Famous." Technically, it's true, right? But you probably wouldn't want to phrase it that way. According to Yahoo, someone did- Carrie's husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, appeared on a local NBC station after signing a major new contract (two years, $8.8 million. Very snazzy).

But the description that ran under Mike's image was not as snazzy. The description read "Is Married To Someone Famous," which (again) is technically true, but a little on the bizarre side.

Luckily, both Mike and "Someone Famous" don't take themselves too seriously- they both cracked up ...

These Artists Aren't Afraid To Show Their Faith

Carrie Underwood notched her seventeenth Billboard Music Award this month with her song, “Something In The Water,” taking home the honors of ‘Best Christian Song.’ Despite criticisms of her Christian lyrical-nature, Underwood won’t give in to those spreading hate.

“I’m not the first person to sing about God, Jesus, faith [or] any of that, and I won’t be the last. And it won’t be the last for me, either,” she told Glamour Magazine back in 2012.

10 Of The Biggest Hits From 'American Idol' Contestants
Say it ain’t so! The popular singing competition, ‘American Idol,’ will be ending after its 15th season in 2016, and honestly, it’s a little hard to believe. Since its inception in 2002, American Idol has been a staple in not only reality shows, but pop music as a whole, and it’s just not going to be the same once it’s gone.

This is no time for sadness, though -- it isn’t gone just yet. So, in the meantime, we should celebrate some of the biggest hits that have spawned from the show’s contestants. There’s been a lot of them, and they’re all fantastic for a ton of different reasons.

New mom Carrie Underwood shared a selfie with her Instagram followers on Wednesday and nearly broke the internet.

Once again, the internet has misused a term (like the countless times wardrobe malfunction has been used incorrectly) by calling the shot a bikini photo and teasing us all with the prospect that maybe we'll be seeing the singer flaunting her near-perfect bod in a two-piece just two months after giving birth to son Isaiah.

But that wasn't so. Technically the 32-year-old singer is in a bikini -- although all you can see is her head and the straps of said swimwear going behind he...

J. Cole Debuts Big On Billboard 200

J. Cole Forest Hills Drive
For J. Cole, the number one spot is a familiar one. For the third time in his career, J. Cole sits atop the Billboard 200. This time, he earns the largest sales of his career as 2014 Forest Hills Drive sold a robust 354,000 copies. Translated to the Billboard 200’s new formula of ‘units’, J. Cole’s latest impacted 375,000. Even more remarkable about J. Cole’s numbers is the lack of a single to drive album sales – “Apparently” was issued upon the album’s release as a single. Initially, the album was forecasted to sell more than 300,000 copies.

So with the debut of J. Cole, Taylor Swif...
