Ed Sheeran Releases Music Video For 'Perfect'

(Radio.com) Ed Sheeran has released the music video for his current single "Perfect." The clip was shot on location in Austria and follows a script Sheeran wrote. In the video, which was directed by Jason Koeing, Sheeran falls in love on the ski slopes and actress Zoey Deutch plays his love interest.

Writing scripts has appealed to Sheeran for some time now: In March, he confessed that he'd like to write, direct and star in his own British indie in the vein of Four Weddings and a Funeral or Notting Hill.

"I am in talks with one filmmaker that I really f—— love and we are going to slowly but surely put something together," he said. "I would want to cast all unknowns. I want to have low-budget, indie, British-made film."

In the video for "Perfect," fans can enjoy gorgeous shots of the Austrian peaks and a love story. It's a bit unnerving to see accident-prone Sheeran on a pair of skis, though. Watch the video here.

Drake Performs New Song And Promises New Music Is Coming Soon

(Radio.com) Drake recently performed a brand new song in Auckland, New Zealand and fans were there to capture the moment on video. While he didn't announce the name of the song, the beginning is slow and sultry and the lyrics address the immortality of stardom and the celebration of pop music.

"Please don't stand at my grave and cry/ Though I'm not there," he crooned. "They made it so I can never really die, no/ "Please don't stand at my grave and cry. Though pop champagne, scream my words."

The performer's last proper album, Views, came out in April 2016 and he released his More Life playlist in March 2016. While he was onstage in Auckland, Drake confirmed that there was new material on the way, though he didn't say when. "When I landed at the airport, here, there was a kid working there and the first thing he said was, 'Hey, great to have you here man. You know, when are you dropping some new s—?' You know, That's love to me. I really do appreciate that," Drizzy told the crowd. "Just know I'm always working for you. I'm never sitting around wasting my time. So I got s— coming for you, don't worry." Watch a snippet of the new song here.

Taylor Swift Debuts 'New Year's Day' Live On Television

(Radio.com) Taylor Swift made her first live television appearance of the year Thursday night, Nov. 9 during Scandal. She played "New Year's Day," from her highly anticipated album, Reputation, just hours before it's official release.

The pop star sat at a piano in her Rhode Island home and delivered the intimate love song to a room full of girlfriends. The choir of voices joined her for the chorus and the bridge.

"Don't read the last page/ But I stay when it's hard or it's wrong or we're making mistakes/ I want your midnights/ But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day," she sang. Read more here.

Sugarland Spark Reunion Speculation

(Radio.com) Sugarland has been on hiatus since 2012, but a mysterious post on the duo's social media pages indicates that a reunion may be in the works. The duo's hiatus began five years ago with Jennifer Nettles' maternity leave, but since then, both she's released two solo albums.

Kristian Bush also released a solo album, and more recently, produced Lindsay Ell's latest album The Project. Kristian indicated in an interview with The Boot earlier this year that he was ready to get Sugarland back in the game whenever Jennifer was ready, but Jennifer seemed less anxious in a statement from her label around that same time.

Then on Wednesday night (Nov. 8), the duo posted a picture of themselves on their social media accounts, simply captioned, 'Still the Same," hinting at the possibility that the beloved duo is back at work together. Check out the post here.

Garth Brooks Admits To Lip-Synced CMA Performance

(Radio.com) Country music's Entertainer of the Year needed a little extra support during last week's CMA Awards show. Garth Brooks has admitted to lip-syncing his performance of "Ask Me How I Know," a song from his latest album, Gunslinger.

Brooks had good reason 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.

Still, it was a tough call for the country music legend wanting to make the most of the moment. "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." Read more here.

Celine Dion and Steve Aoki Team For 'My Heart Will Go On' Remix

(Radio.com) An unlikely pair banded together to raise over $1 million for Omnia Nightclub's Las Vegas Victims Fund. Steve Aoki and Celine Dion delivered a surprise performance/remix of her classic "My Heart Will Go On."

Aoki has been remixing the Dion classic for years, according to NME, but this time the two Vegas residents teamed up in person. The money raised helps families of victims from the Route 91 Harvest Festival on October 1.

Check out fan footage of the performance of "My Heart Will Go On" here.

Madonna Shares Surprise Late-Night Cover

(Radio.com) Between albums, Madonna has tried her hand at stand-up comedy, imitated Kim Kardashian and struggled to get her UPS packages delivered. (For what it's worth, she's also announced major philanthropic plans in Malawi and celebrated Noel Gallagher's 50th birthday.)

The Queen of Pop is almost certainly plotting her next reinvention, but with all this downtime she's managed to have a little fun. Earlier this Madonna tweeted a cover of Elliott Smith's "Between the Bars" while everyone in her house was asleep.

"Between the Bars…………strumming my favorite song when everyone else is asleep. Eliot Smith #prayer #lullaby #love," she wrote.

Wearing glasses and a striped shirt, Madonna strummed the guitar and delivered some soft, tender vocals. It's safe to say she did her "favorite song" justice. Watch the video here.

Country Stars Read Mean Tweets On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

(Radio.com) Jimmy Kimmel's "Mean Tweets" segment gives celebrities the chance to laugh about nasty remarks written about them on Twitter. Last night, country stars confronted their trolls by reading the mean, often illogical things haters wrote on social media.

"I want to throw Blake Shelton off a highway overpass by his legs and watch him get obliterated by a Peterbilt pulling a big stupid house," Blake Shelton read. Darius Rucker, Lady Antebellum, Cassadee Pope, Chris Stapleton and others also played along.

"Dude from Florida Georgia Line looks like Clayton Kershaw if he gave up on baseball and started making s—– music," the FGL guys read aloud. Little Big Town also had some Twitter ugliness to share:

"Little Big Town sounds like they threw a bunch of cats in a bag and beat them around with a tennis racquet," they read. Watch the hilarious segment here.

James Corden And 'Stranger Things' Kids Form Motown Cover Band

(Radio.com) Stranger Things season 2 has captivated audiences as much as the debut season last year. To celebrate the show, James Corden invited stars Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo and Noah Schnapp on The Late Late Show for a crazy sketch about their imaginary musical pasts.

In Corden's recollection, he and the four guys made a Motown cover band called the Upside-Downs before they were famous. "People thought it was weird that James hung out with us because he was an adult, but we actually went to school with him. He was held back a couple of years, but we're in the same grade," Wolfhard explained.

"The boys and I, we have so much in common. We love playing video games, we all like taking naps, most importantly, we all love Motown," Corden said. "We sold out a retirement home for old folks and we killed. We killed, literally."

After the Behind The-Music-style clip, the Upside Downs appeared on Corden's main stage to perform a medley of hits by the Temptations, the Jackson 5 and the Four Tops. Watch the clip here.

Country Artists Call for Unity and Strength at 51st Annual CMA Awards

(Radio.com) The 51st Country Music Awards (CMAs) aired live last night (Nov. 8), and many of the artists who spoke or performed had passionate messages of unity and strength for their audience.

Co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kicked off the show by telling jokes about President Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, other country singers and the Country Music Association. But they also addressed more serious matters that have affected the nation, including the Las Vegas country festival massacre and called for fans to unify and heal.

"This has been a year marked by tragedy impacting countless lives, including so many in our country music family," Underwood said. "So tonight, we're gonna do what families do — come together, pray together, cry together and sing together, too."

To honor the 58 people that were killed and the nearly 500 injured at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on October 1, Underwood sang "Softly and Tenderly," while photos of the murdered victims were displayed onscreen.

The hosts also addressed the victims of the Sutherland Springs, Texas church shooting and those affected by hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. "The best way to honor our fans is to play our music loud and proud," said Paisley. "Our music lifts people up."

"We are a family," Garth Brooks said after winning entertainer of the year for the second year in a row, "The most important thing other than God himself are you -- the people that allow us to be in the greatest music ever -- country music." Read more here.

A$AP Ferg Releases 'Trap and a Dream' Video Featuring Meek Mill

(Radio.com) A$AP Ferg has shared the official music video for his track "Trap and a Dream," featuring Meek Mill. The clip finds both rappers hanging out on a city street on a stylish white sports car as they trade rhymes.

"Meek is my brother and will forever have my support, especially in these tough times," Ferg said in a press statement, also sending out a link to the petition for Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf to look into Meek Mill's current incarceration.

Ferg ends the clip with a quote from Moliere, "The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it," followed by the hashtag, #FreeMeek. Check out the clip, which contains explicit language, here.

Blake Shelton Talks New Album 'Texoma Shore'

(Radio.com) Blake Shelton recently released his 11th studio album, Texoma Shore, and the 11 tracks are a return to the singer's roots with vivid storylines and country instrumentation.

Ahead of the album's release, Shelton made six songs available for fans and the generous gesture rewarded him. As a result, he accomplished a feat no other country artist has ever done when each song debuted on the charts, making him the only artist to have six songs on the Mediabase chart at one time in Country Aircheck's history.

'At the end of the day, I make music so that it can be heard," Shelton explains. 'It's amazing that so many songs from a brand new album have been embraced so early. I'm proud of this record and the work that went into making it, and I'm proud that already it means something to my fans. Thanks to country radio for the support."

While current single "I'll Name the Dogs" is climbing the charts, there's another song that Shelton says he hopes will be released as a single. "Why Me" is the second song he recorded for the album and the Oklahoma native says it's as country as it gets.

''Why Me' to me meets every country standard criteria for a just a great song," he says. "It's a great message; it speaks to guys being guys and, at the end of the day, as tough as it is [for a] man sometimes to talk about his feelings and be open about it, it's great to have a song like 'Why Me' that can kind of say it for somebody."

It is evident that girlfriend Gwen Stefani inspired some of the music on the album, including the sexy "Turnin' Me On," which Shelton started writing by himself on his bus in Baton Rouge.

'I was up there alone and I had my guitar, started playing a little melody that I was hearing in my head and next thing you know I started writing a song. I wrote a verse, then I wrote a chorus, then I realized it was going somewhere and I felt good about it," he recalls. "Like I always [have] in the last couple of years I called up my friend Jessi Alexander and said, 'Man, I think I'm onto something and I need somebody way better than me to try to bring this thing home.' She and I and Josh Osborne ended up writing this song, I'm super proud of it - and it's not hard to figure out who this song is about." Read more here.

Netflix's 'Bright' Unveils Soundtrack Details

(Radio.com) Netflix will unveil its new original series Bright, which stars Will Smith on Dec. 22. Today details of the soundtrack, which will be released on Dec. 15, were revealed, and it's filled with big names.

Bastille, Portugal. The Man, Alt-J and Sam Hunt all contribute tracks, but perhaps it's the collaborations that are most intriguing. Especially Neil Young and DRAM who team for the track "Campfire."

The collection of tracks was put together by Atlantic Records and David Ayer, the creative minds behind the massively successful soundtrack for Suicide Squad.

"Set in an alternate present-day, Bright follows two cops from very different backgrounds," reads an official series synopsis. "Ward, a human (Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a deadly, thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything." Check out the full tracklisting for the Bright soundtrack here.

Faith Hill Photo-Bombs Miranda Lambert

(Radio.com) It's a good week for country music stars. With the country music industry posted up in Nashville for a series of events leading up to the CMAs, you can't toss a cowboy hat in town without hitting a singer, songwriter or label executive.

Such was the case at this week's (Nov. 7) BMI Country Awards, where Keith Urban received the BMI Champion Award for his work supporting up and coming songwriters and musicians.

Among those in attendance was Miranda Lambert, who was there with friend and fellow singer-songwriter, Natalie Hemby. The two were having their picture taken by Lambert's boyfriend, Anderson East, when they were photo-bombed by someone else at the event.

The photo-bomber in question was none less than country music legend, Faith Hill. "Ummmmm last night at the BMI awards," Lambert captioned the photo on Instagram. "Best photo bomb ever! Me and (Natalie Hamby) freaked out." See the cute photo here.

Nick Jonas Gets Dramatic With Craigslist 'Missed Connections'

(Radio.com) Nick Jonas recently had some fun doing dramatic readings of a Craigslist Missed Connections posts for W Magazine and the clip can be seen online.

For those uninitiated, missed connections posts are personal ads that give strangers who may have encountered each other in public the chance to reconnect online.

A highlight of the funny video is a haiku-like poetic snippet titled Subway Station: "You got off. I got on. You: Brunette. Tight jeans. Great legs. Me: Blue cap. Glasses. I want you." Check out the fun clip here.
