A Conversation With The Oak Ridge Boys' Richard Sterban
The Oak Ridge Boys have been around in one form or another since the 1940's, so it might surprise you to know that they're just now releasing their first live record, Boys' Night Out. As the album becomes available today, BFTV spoke with bassist Richard Sterban - who's been with the group since 1972 - about what made 2014 the right time to put out a live disc and the Oaks' enduring popularity.

"It just feels like the timing is right," Richard explained. "We'd been wanting to do a live album for several years. Our fans have been requesting a live album for a long time. We've been wanting to...

'The Voice' Recap: Season 6 Playoffs, Night 2
After narrowing down Team Blake last Tuesday, The Voice is putting two more teams on the chopping block Monday. It's Team Shakira and Team Adam who are being narrowed down from five members to three, with their coach having to decide which two artists are going home.

Shakira's squad begins the night, with country singer Kristen Merlin batting leadoff after being montaged for last parts of the season. We're finally getting a good look at what Kristen can do with Carrie Underwood's "Two Black Cadillacs." Her take on the song certainly has enough power behind it, including one crazy note in t...

Brett Davern Returns To Win 2014 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race
Brett Davern has definitely left his mark on the auto racing world. After a surprising second-place finish last year, Brett returned to put our jaws on the floor again as he was named champion of the 2014 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race. While he proved on Saturday that he has as much racing talent as he does acting talent, BFTV was on hand to document Brett's climb to the top. We also checked back in with Cole Hauser, Rutledge Wood and Tricia Helfer to talk about how they fared behind the wheel.

Brett represents everything that's fantastic about the Pro/Celebrity Race. In 2013, he came in and r...

'The Good Wife' Review: 'A Material World'
With Will Gardner's death addressed and Finn Polmar officially added to the team, The Good Wife is picking up where Season 5 left off before its crushing revelation, with legal wrangling and personal complications. "A Material World" is not the show's most perfectly put together episode, but this one will definitely leave you wondering.

The episode opens with Diane and Alicia having drinks after Will's funeral. Soon, they're more than slightly inebriated and riffing on not only the ceremony, but their professional futures. Diane suggests that the two firms merge and become one again, which...

Adam Ferrara Returns In Season 6 Of 'Nurse Jackie'
That Jackie Peyton is one lucky gal.

The always hilarious, permanently awesome Adam Ferrara is now a series regular in Season 6 of Nurse Jackie, which kicks off tonight at 9 PM ET/PT on Showtime. He was recurring last season as NYPD officer Frank Verelli, who was determined to romance Jackie (award-winner Edie Falco).

In the new season, Frank and Jackie are still together - but Frank has no idea that Jackie has fallen off the wagon and is once again dealing with her addiction.

Adam is currently hard at work shooting new episodes of Top Gear for History, alongside co-hosts Rutledge Wood a...

Rutledge Wood, Sam Witwer Set For 2014 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race
By the time you're reading this, the 2014 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race will be just hours away. At yesterday's practice and qualifying day, BFTV finally caught up with our friend and defending champion Rutledge Wood - who by virtue of his victory now starts in the Pro category - and newcomer to the field, but not to our audience, Sam Witwer. Here's what Rut and Sam had to tell us about their plans for handling this race and their future projects.

Rutledge is being a little, shall we say, cautious about his chances. "I think the only way that we'll have a shot is if we steal the keys to Al Uns...

Doreen Taylor Pays Tribute With 'Colors Of The USA'
Doreen Taylor has done it again. Since we interviewed her about the release of her album Magic in 2012, she's been steadily working her way up in the country music world. Recently, she was tapped by the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) to write an anthem for them, and that track, "Colors of the USA," is out now. We caught up with Doreen to discuss this newest accomplishment in her career, and her plans for 2014.

"Unbeknownst to me, they were already searching for something like this," said Doreen, who was approached to create the track as we head toward the 100th anniversary ...

'Suits' Recap: 'No Way Out'
Another brilliant season of Suits comes to a close, and we get all verklempt about not being able to enjoy and disassemble and be moved by such a great show every week. And while the show didn't deliver the ultimate bullet that it could have, it still does a fine job - perhaps the more appropriate job - of pushing all its main characters forward into a new world.

Harvey's still in a brooding mood after the events of last week, which this episode follows almost immediately on the heels of. As he and Donna drink to Mike's change of heart (after Harvey calls Donna out on not being entirely be...
