New Film For Taylor?
New Film For Taylor?

There are rumors that Taylor Swift has been offered a role in an upcoming spy film, The Secret Service.  The film will also star, Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson.

The Henningsens spent the summer on the road with Brad Paisley for the Beat This Summer Tour.  It’s been a great learning experience for the trio but it’s also been a chance to see some really cool places.  Brian says, ““It’s taken us a lot of places that we haven’t ever been before. We’ve also seen the backside of a lot of stadiums, and that’s kind of what you do when you’re on tour — and hopefully, you get some sightseeing in. I was able to go to a Civil War battlefield in Manassas Junction and snuck out of the camp one day and went and saw the Saratoga, New York, race track, of Carly Simon ‘You’re So Vain’ fame. So, yeah, and I mean, we were out in the mountains, got to see Denver and the Rockies and Salt Lake. It’s all beautiful”.  You can see the Henningsens perform at the Arcola Broomcorn Festival on Sunday.

Jo Dee Messina mentioned a few weeks ago that she was in talks to join the cast of Dancing with the Stars.  Apparently that didn’t work out.  The new cast was announced today and Jo Dee is not on the list.

DVR alert! Kenny Chesney will be profiled on CBS Sunday Morning, Sunday (9/8).  Kenny invited cameras backstage for the final weekend of his No Shoes Nation Tour last month. They also followed him as he visited Boston Marathon bombing victims at Boston Medical Center.
