Country Stars Honor Vegas Victims At CMT's Artists of the Year Ceremony

(Radio.com) On Wednesday evening (Oct. 18), the 2017 CMT Artists of the Year was held at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The night honored Chris Stapleton, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan but also served as an evening of hope for country fans and those affected by the devastating events over the past few months.

Following the shooting at Route 91 Harvest Festival earlier this month, the event took on a different, more unified tone. Instead of giving awards to artists and recruiting musicians to deliver speeches, organizers strived to help celebrate and uplift the human spirit by filling the program with heartfelt messages from country artists.

"We've been tested beyond our worst nightmares the past few months. Heartbroken doesn't even begin to explain how some of us feel," said Aldean, who was onstage when the shooting in Las Vegas began. "But we have proven time and again in this country that we have the power to overcome anything that threatens our way of life or our freedom. We dedicate this night to you and to everyone who's experienced loss or tragedy in the past few months. We will get through this together."

Aldean closed the 2017 CMT Artists of the Year with a powerful cover of Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down" alongside Stapleton, Urban and Little Big Town. Aldean previously played the song on Saturday Night Live but it was just as powerful the second time, providing a poignant end to a heartfelt night of music. Read more here.

Niall Horan Talks Debut Album 'Flicker'

(Radio.com) Even after selling 70 million records as a member of One Direction, all eyes are on Niall Horan's next move. His first album Flicker arrives today as millions of fans stand by to witness his solo debut.

For inspiration, Niall drew upon vAmerican classic rockers Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles. In a new Apple Music documentary, the latter's Don Henley makes an appearance to vouch for Horan's potential.

Contributing songwriting to the One Direction catalog was an early path to finding his voice, but now Horan has the spotlight to himself. The boy band was a launch pad for bigger, more personal ambitions.

"There was a lot of 1D stuff I wrote that was along the lines of Fleetwood [Mac], stuff like that, and I hear myself in them songs now sometimes," Horan said in May. "But this time it's just completely me, so I get to do what I want when I want, really."

"I've been listening to a lot of early 80's stuff lately and been inspired by that heavy bass and the funky guitar sound," Horan says of the album's current single "Slow Hands." "It's another flavor to my album that I'm excited to share." Read more here.
