Meek Mill Appeals His Controversial Probation Violation Sentence

(Radio.com) On November 6, A judge sentenced Meek Mill to two to four years in prison for a probation violation, leading hip-hop artists and activists to protest in the streets of Philadelphia. The probation stems from a 2008 arrest for drugs and guns for which Meek served time.

Meek is now appealing the sentence and requesting "the recusal of Judge Brinkley from considering and ruling on that motion and from any further adjudicatory role in this case." According to Meek's complaint, the judge ignored the advice of his probation officer and the rapper has "responded well" and "actively participated in an effort towards behavioral change."

"Judge Brinkley has repeatedly offered inappropriate personal and professional advice to the defendant," Mill's attorney Brian Mcmonagle told Billboard. Read more here.

Country Stars Celebrate Military Service at Stars and Strings Concert

(Radio.com) On November 15th, CBS Radio rose the curtain (or flag, rather) on the third annual Stars and Strings concert, which allowed the Chicago Theater to transform into equal parts country concert, podcast, storyteller series, and MTV unplugged, in a stripped-down, acoustic concert celebrating our nation's military heroes and their families.

The evening was the playlist of our dreams. A live, acoustic shuffle of ballads and classics, heartbreakers and soul-renewers that breath life and compassion into us. Proceeds from the show went to Folds of Honor, which provides educational support to the spouses and children of our fallen and injured soldiers. Every seat in the house was donned with a white bandana and a small American flag. Rather than the customary red curtain, a larger than life American flag hung center stage pre-show. At 7:30 p.m. Drew Walker welcomed us into the night and Jim Cornelison, voice of the Chicago Blackhawks, delivered the National Anthem.

Country rock renegade Lindsay Ell kicked off the performance (and her first show at the Chicago Theater). Ell beamed, 'For a blonde girl who likes to write songs and play guitar, it's a dream to hear [my] music on the radio, so thank you CBS and US99!"

Kelsea Ballerini, Chris Young, and Brad Paisley then took over hosting duties of what now felt like a jam session atop a country porch on a warm summer night. Kelsea reminisces about going to Brad's shows growing up, while Brad forgets a verse and goes to the crowd to remind him. As this is Ballerini's last show before getting married, she 'unapologetically' showcases her broad vocal range. Chris recounts experiencing how music goes 'around the world and back again' while playing a show in Iraq, and accidentally calling his sister a former Marine, rather than a retired Marine.

Tame Impala Stream New Music With 'Currents B-Sides & Remixes' EP

(Radio.com) Tame Impala have shared new music via the Currents B-Sides & Remixes EP. The five-track release features three new songs, one new remix and a previously issued Soulwax remix of "Let it Happen."

Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker talked about the EP's opening track, "List Of People (To Try And Forget About)," with Zane Lowe, saying that it was written during sessions for the band's 2012 album, Lonerism.

"I guess one of the reasons it didn't end up on (2015 release Currents) is because it was started on so early and I was so over it by the time I was finishing the album," Parker said. "But by the time I got to finish it I was really satisfied with it as a song, and as a chunk of my creativity and emotion and stuff."

The new EP comes as part of an expanded edition of Currents, which is due to debut this Friday, Nov. 17. Stream it here.

(Radio.com) When Macklemore said he wanted to give back, he really meant it. Seattle rapper Travis Thompson, discovered through a residency program started by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, made his debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night (Nov. 15).

"Ryan Lewis and I helped launch The Residency so that young aspiring hip-hop artists in Seattle have a chance to pursue their passions in music," Macklemore told Billboard. "Travis was a standout in the first year of the program, came back in a leadership role the next year, and it's been incredible to watch him grow as an artist over the last three years."

Thompson went on to collaborate with Macklemore on the song "Corner Store" from his latest album, Gemini, and is on the road as part of the current tour. It's the song they performed together on Fallon. Watch the performance here.

Lady Antebellum Appreciate The Sacrifice Of Military Service

(Radio.com) For country music stars Lady Antebellum, the military hits close to home as two of the members have family who decided to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country and enlist.

In an interview with Radio.com at US99's Stars and Strings Concert in Chicago, Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood explain the effect the military has had on their families.

"My brother-in-law Robertson, he's in the military right now," Kelley explains. "He feels like [he has] such a purpose right now. He decided not to go to college and joined the military. I'm so proud of him. He's not sure where he's going to get stationed yet. He just got through boot camp. It's such a sacrifice thinking about when he comes back and we get to catch up. I say, 'What is it like?' and I could just see the pride on his face. It's definitely a sacrifice I don't know if I could make."

Haywood, meanwhile, has a cousin in the Navy and admits that the time away from home is the ultimate sacrifice for families. "I think the families sacrifice so much. My cousin's in the Navy. He's been to Japan and Hawaii for years," Haywood explains. "He comes home once a year, twice a year at most. His wife and three kids hardly ever get to see him. It's a big honor for us to be here and to celebrate the families that are supporting to all those who serve. That's a huge sacrifice to be away." Read more here.
