Nick Jonas And Shania Twain Christmas Song

(Radio.com) (Radio.com) Nick Jonas and Shania Twain have joined forces for "Say All You Want For Christmas," a new holiday song that's all about giving and receiving. The mid-paced track is slow and sensuous, starting with a spare piano line and gradually building with strings and vocals:

"Spread all of your emotions on the table/ And let me see your heart upon your sleeve/ …I wanna know exactly what you need/ Say all you want for Christmas is me."

Jonas and Twain's voices harmonize beautifully throughout the love song, especially on the chorus: "I'm gonna love you like/ like it's always Christmas Eve/ And I'm gonna sacrifice the selfish part of me/ And when we're all alone and I hold you close/ Everything I need/ Say all you want for Christmas is me."

Taylor Swift Shares Heartfelt And Poignant Letter To Fans

(Radio.com) (Radio.com) While the world is eagerly taking in the 15 songs spread across Taylor Swift's new Reputation album, the singer has shared a heartfelt and poignant letter to fans in physical copies of the release.

In the letter, Swift talks about dealing with modern life, where a deluge of curated information shapes our perceptions of ourselves and each other. "We think we know someone, but the truth is that we only know the version of them they have chosen to show us," Swift's letter begins. "We know our friend in a certain light, but we don't know them the way their lover does. Just the way their lover will never know them the same way that you do as their friend. Their mother knows them differently than their roommate, who knows them differently than their colleague. Their secret admirer looks at them and sees an elaborate sunset of brilliant color and dimension and spirit and pricelessness."

"And yet, a stranger will pass that same person and see a faceless member of the crowd, nothing more. We may hear rumors about a person and believe those things to be true. We may one day meet that person and feel foolish for believing baseless gossip. This is the first generation that will be able to look back on their entire life story documented in pictures on the internet, and together we will all discover the after-effects of that."

Swift continues the letter by addressing social media directly, and looks ahead at how it's proliferation will affect people in the future: "This is the first generation that will be able to look back on their entire life story documented in pictures on the internet, and together we will all discover the after-effects of that," she shared. "Ultimately, we post photos online to curate what strangers think of us. But then we wake up, look in the mirror at our faces and see the cracks and scars and blemishes, and cringe. We hope someday we'll meet someone who will see that same morning face and instead see their future, their partner, their forever. Someone who will still choose us even when they see all of the sides of the story, all the angles of the kaleidoscope that is you." See the full letter here.

Anderson East Offended By Garth Brooks' CMAs Lip-Sync

(Radio.com) (Radio.com) Country music fans were shocked and surprised when Garth Brooks lip-synced his performance at this year's CMA Awards. Brooks explained his decision to use a prerecorded live track: the country legend was sick, and in the middle of a strenuous string of concerts on tour.

"We're in the middle of 12 shows in 10 days. Not 10 shows in 12 days, 12 shows in 10 days," he revealed. "We made a game-time call on whether to sing to a track or lip-sync," Brooks said in the press room after the show (via People). "And we decided to lip-sync it. My voice just isn't going anywhere, and we wanted to represent country music the best we can."

Last week, singer-songwriter (and Miranda Lambert's boyfriend) Anderson East expressed strong feelings about Brooks' augmented performance, going so far as to say that he's offended by it.

"I keep a lot of my opinions to myself and respect anyone making music but as a person who tries to put on the best and most honest show I can night after night… this truly offends me," East tweeted. "I was told country music is three chords and the truth."

East's comment has generated a slew of responses from both supporters and critics of his comments. Read some here.

"Being biracial and being in country music is actually kinda hard," he admits in a new interview with Nightline. "I get talked down on so much in country music because of my look and I just really want to change that."

"I just want to change stereotypes. You can't be scared to be different. I honestly love the old school sound, because I feel like I'm an old soul when it comes to that stuff, but I'm mixed in with new school." Read more here.

Jason Aldean Relives Las Vegas Shooting In New Interview

(Radio.com) (Radio.com) Jason Aldean was on stage performing on October 1 at Route 91 Harvest in Las Vegas when a man opened fire, killing 58 people and injuring more than 500. In an interview with Today, which aired on Tuesday morning (Nov. 14), the singer recalled the confusion he and his band felt as the bullets started to fly.

"We wear in-ear monitors when we're onstage. And really, all you can hear is the music and maybe your guys that can talk to you on microphones that are on side-stage," Aldean explained. "So when it first happened, I thought a speaker had blown, is what I thought. It just sounded like a crackling something. And so, I'm kind of looking around like, 'What is that?', trying to figure out what it is. Then it stopped, so I was like, 'They must have got it fixed,' and so I kept doing my thing."

Moments later, he heard the sound again and Aldean said he was aggravated that the problem wasn't fixed. Then he realized something was very wrong. "When I turned and looked, my guitar player had run behind me and was telling me to move, like, 'Let's go,'" Aldean said. "My security guy was running onstage, telling me to run." Read more here.

Taylor Swift Makes Emotional Surprise 'Fallon' Appearance

(Radio.com) (Radio.com) Taylor Swift made an unscheduled appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday night (Nov. 13). Fallon's first day back after a week off to grieve his mother's death was an emotional one and Swift helped spread the healing.

At the start of the show, Fallon told a touching story from his childhood, in which his mother squeezed his hand three times to say I love you. So, when Swift performed the poignant "New Year's Day" which coincidentally featured the lyric, "Squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi," Fallon and his staff got a little emotional.

Tonight Show writer and producer Mike DiCenzo shared some background about Swift's last-minute performance and thanked the singer for her thoughtfulness.

"She was not scheduled to do our show today," he wrote on Twitter. "But we wanted something special for this first show back, so we asked her on a complete whim, since she had been in town doing SNL. She said yes with zero hesitation."

Referring to the line in the song about hand-squeezing, he added, "I nearly gasped. Tears. I think everyone in the audience started sobbing. I could see Jimmy silhouetted at his desk dabbing his eyes with a tissue. We all lost it. It was a beautiful coincidence in a beautiful performance."

Later in the song, Swift sang another line that struck a chord: "Hold on to your memories, they will hold on to you."

"That hug between Jimmy and Taylor after the song was 100 percent real emotion," he said. "Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something beautiful for Jimmy and our show today, and we're forever grateful." DiCenzo tweeted.

Kendrick Lamar Shares Thoughts On Mumble Rap

(Radio.com) (Radio.com) The generation divide in hip-hop continues to rage, with traditional purists of the genre locked in perpetual battle with a new school of rap, currently represented by the wave of "mumble" rappers including Lil Yachty, Future, 21 Savage, Migos and Lil Uzi Vert.

Kendrick Lamar has shared his thoughts on the mumble rap phenomenon during a new interview with Forbes as part of their annual "30 Under 30" issue. "The responsibility … this is how I think is how you stay sane and stay focused in the essence of music, is to never forget the root where I come from, as far as hip-hop, and knowing my forefathers and the people that laid the groundwork for me to be here," Lamar said when asked about what comes with the mantle of being among (if not) the best rapper alive. "I always keep that in the back of my mind. Never take it for advantage, and misuse it.

"But also, at the same time I want to evolve. You know? I want hip-hop to continue to evolve," Lamar continued. "That's why I can't shun a lot of the artists that may not be a Kendrick Lamar. But this is what I tell them every time I see them … be yourself and do what you do but also know who laid down the groundwork. Don't go on your interviews and dis them and say you don't like them and you don't care for them. That's your opinion, that's cool but you have to respect them. So talking down on the folks that inspired us to do this, it'd never be right." Read more here.
