Kenny Chesney has revealed the track listing for his new album, The Big Revival, set for release on September 23. The project includes 11 tracks, including Chesney’s latest single, “American Kids,” a collaboration with Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski called “Don’t It,” and “Wild Child,” which features Grace Potter.

“There’s so much more to country than trucks, creek beds and cut-offs,” Chesney said. “That stuff is fun, but when you look at how people really dig in and work, the things they face every day, you wanna remind ’em how hardcore they really are, show ’em that and also show ’em that you know there’s more to ’em than people might think.” Continue Reading

Trisha Yearwood is nearly as well known for her cooking as she is her singing. On her Food Network show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, she shows off some of her favorite recipes, including healthy meals for her family. She graces the cover of the new issue of Woman’s Day to discuss how she and husband Garth Brooks manage a healthy routine with their busy schedule and raising three daughters.

“First of all, we’re musicians, so there’s no ‘routine,’” she told the magazine. “All those years of three girls and their activities? Even with only one still at home, there are a million things going on every night. Taylor and August are in college now, but they live nearby, and if I send out a text that says, ‘Hey, it’s veggie night,’ they’ll show up. They know it means I’m roasting all their favorite vegetables and probably serving a meat loaf, too.” Continue Reading
