The Band Perry’s Music Featured In Glee

The Fox series, Glee, is preparing to say goodbye to one of their own.  Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson, passed away in July.  Thursday night’s emotional tribute to the late star will feature The Band Perry‘s hit single, If I Die Young.

Carrie Underwood is preparing for her role as Maria Von Trapp in the live staging of The Sound of Music.  Julie Andrews, who played the character in the classic film, has given Carrie her seal of approval.  That makes Carrie very happy and she says she’d love to meet Julie someday, “Well, of course, at some point I would love to meet her, just because she’s somebody that I grew up watching and listening to, and my mom and I would always watch The Sound of Music together every time it was on TV. So that always holds really special memories for me”.  Carrie says she will not try to be Julie Andrews.  The December 5th broadcast is based on the original musical, not the film, “I think that the most important thing is to not…’cause we’re doing the musical version, not the movie version, and there are a few differences. So I think it might be more important for me to not, like, try to go too much in the route of Julie Andrews, ’cause no one can touch her. I am not her, I will never be her. She holds such an iconic place in so many people’s hearts, and I think it’s really important for me to kind of get into the whole musical space versus the movie space, which she was so wonderful in”.

The first list of performers for the CMA’s was announced yesterday.  That list includes, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban.  Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will host country music’s biggest night for the sixth straight year, on November 6th.

Luke Bryan is on the cover of the latest issue of People Country. Luke is so much fun onstage I can only imagine how fun he is at home! According to  Luke’s wife,  Caroline, yes he is!  She tells the magazine she has ” tons of films of him in the kitchen dancing around in a silly outfit”.  Go behind the scenes of Luke’s cover shoot here.
