Taylor Swift Reveals Another Serpentine Teaser Ahead of New Music

(Radio.com) After abruptly scrubbing her social media presence last week, country turned pop idol Taylor Swift has returned with her second cryptic teaser video in two days.

Much like the first clip, this second video is another grainy video of what appears to be a snake. Given the pronounced scales visible in this visual, a case could be made that it's even a dragon akin to the ones seen in HBO sensation, Game of Thrones.

Rumors have been swirling about the meaning behind the serpentine teasers, with fans theorizing that Swift is responding to online insults over the recent past calling the star a "snake." Most notably, a shady tweet from Kim Kardashian during the fallout of Kanye West's song "Famous," from the Life of Pablo album.

If other rumors are to be believed, Swift's new single, allegedly titled "Timeless," is due to arrive this Friday, August 25. Watch the video here.

Thomas Rhett Explains His Daughters' Names

(Radio.com) Thomas Rhett is the proud father of two daughters, Willa Gray who he and his wife, Lauren, adopted from Uganda in May and Ada James, who Lauren gave birth to on Aug. 12.

In an interview with his label, Big Machine, Rhett discusses the inspiration for their names. "Willa came from my mom's dad, his name is Willard, which translated means innately brave," Rhett tells his record label, Big Machine. "We felt like Willa was a beautiful girl name and also I think we thought it represented her story you have to be strong to survive what she went through. And then Gray is short for Lauren's brother Grayson and we really love Grayson's personality and we love him so much. We just thought Willa and Gray [fit] really nice together. We're a huge double name family if you haven't known."

Meanwhile, his newborn's name came about slightly differently. While the name does resemble some family lineage it also came to mind in a dream his wife had. "Ada James, James comes from my uncle, my dad's brother his name is James Elias," Rhett shares. "So James is her middle name and Ada, Lauren said that she had a dream and she kept hearing the name Ada in the dream. And that is why we went with Ada. Pretty random but really cool."

(Radio.com) Lindsay Ell has much to celebrate this summer. Not only is she on one of the biggest country tours with headliner Brad Paisley but the guitarist and songwriter just released her debut album The Project.

Helmed by producer Kristian Bush of Sugarland fame, the country singer told Keleigh Nealon in an interview for Radio.com that the album was exactly the type of record she wanted to make since she was a little girl. She credits Bush with helping her find her identity as a musician and songwriter for her first major release saying, "I'm so proud of the music we made."

As to why the title was simply kept The Project, Ell said, "It felt like it's been a big science project." The album's first single "Waiting on You" was actually a starting point in the studio for the release. Ell says, "It's been an amazing process to write The Project from beginning to end and 'Waiting on You' was really the song'the first time that Kristian heard it he said, 'This is where we start.'"

Now that she's made her first record in Music City, she's so proud to be a part of the community of woman creating music in Nashville. "There's so many talented female artist and musicians in Nashville right now. I'm so happy that I can help spotlight some of them on my record by cutting some songs from them as well as being a female musician," she said. "It always surprises me why there aren't more females playing instruments, especially leading bands playing instruments. Even if you look across the format there's not a lot of women playing lead instruments. And so I'm happy I can help lead that movement and be like, 'You know what, girls can play guitar too,' or play whatever instrument you want to play." Read more here.
