Hank Williams Jr. Returns To 'Monday Night Football'

(Radio.com) Controversial country singer Hank Williams Jr. made his return to Monday Night Football last week (Sept. 11) with a new version of the show's theme song with Jason Derulo and Florida Georgia Line.

The three acts performed an updated version of "All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night" before a game between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings.

It was Williams' first appearance opening the show in six years, after the singer was pulled from the intro in 2011 for making incendiary comments. "We all grew up watching Monday Night Football, and it's surreal to join Jason Derulo and Hank Williams Jr. on this new version that gives a nod back but also a step forward," said Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelly.

"It's truly momentous to be featured in the Monday Night Football anthem for the upcoming season," chimed Derulo. "I feel the opening song sets the tone and energizes the fans before kickoff, and this year I'm putting my swag on it." Check out a fan capture of the opening sequence here.

Tim McGraw Explains How Working Out Changed His Life

(Radio.com) Tim McGraw is in better shape than all of us. Well, most of us, anyway. The country superstar and husband to fellow country superstar Faith Hill takes fitness very seriously, so much so that the outrageously ripped singer has teamed up with Snap Fitness to develop a line of specialty health clubs, TRU MAV.

While McGraw spends at least a couple of hours every day working out, he explains that staying in shape is about a lot more than being hot. "It's not necessarily about how you look, it's about accomplishing something," he explains in a new interview with Entrepreneur.

"Ten years ago when I really started trying to get myself in good shape, I noticed it raised the bar on everything that I did it: my career, my family life, my alertness. It changed my whole attitude about everything that I do. Finding good habits turned into better habits and finding better habits turned into really, really, really great habits. I think it's made my career stronger and certainly has given me more longevity."

McGraw has even roped his band into staying fit with group workouts on the road. Read about that here.

Midland Explain Their Unlikely Bruno Mars Connection

(Radio.com) Midland is bringing a traditional sound to country radio thanks to their debut single, "Drinkin' Problem," so it comes across as a bit of surprise to learn that bassist Cameron Duddy is also an award-winning music director, most notably having just received several MTV Video Music Awards for co-directing Bruno Mars' "24K Magic" video. How did this collaboration come about?

"I met Bruno when I was in my early 20s," Cameron recalls in a statement from the trio's label. "My wife took his first publicity photos, and I met him then."

"He's a very loyal person, so he kept me on his team and was kind of the first person to ever take a chance on me for directing - which is something that I've wanted to do my whole life, just like playing music," he shares. Read more here.

Sam Smith Talks Weight Loss And Upcoming Tour

(Radio.com) Sam Smith is ready to get back out on tour. "I just want to go out on stage every night and crush it," he admitted in an exclusive interview with Radio.com, plus he thinks he's already nailed down a rough set list while making his new album.

Also on his 'to do' list for touring – a healthier and more relaxed lifestyle this time while out on the road. The slimmed down and fit singer opened up as to why he feels it's important to maintain his trim physique and admitted that he of course has his weaknesses too.

"I love cheese, it's impossible. I'm always going to struggle with it," Smith says. "It's mainly about being healthy and being ready for touring. Last time when I was making my first record, it was tougher when I was heavier. It's healthy, I'm happy."

And just how will he spending his time when he's not out on stage? He spoke of these plans while promoting his new single "Too Good At Goodbyes."

"I've drank all the drinks now, there's no more drinks to drink at the moment," he joked. "I'm trying to clear my body and my mind and I'm going to be a granny on tour. That's my aim this time. Candles and hot water and Sex and the City." Read more here.

Blake Shelton's New Song 'I'll Name the Dogs' Sounds Like a Proposal

(Radio.com) Blake Shelton has released his new track "I'll Name the Dogs." The lyrics of the song could easily be read as a proposal to girlfriend Gwen Stefani. "I'm talkin' you and me with the same street name. Same last name, same everything," Shelton sings.

As if that doesn't get the point across, Shelton continues the sweet talking, even telling the subject of the song, "You name the babies." "You find the spot and I'll find the money/ You be the pretty and I'll be the funny/ You plant the flowers, I'll plant the kisses/ Baby let's get right down to business/ I'll hang the pictures/ you hang the stars. You pick the paint, I'll pick a guitar/ Sing you a song out there with the crickets and frogs/ You name the babies and I'll name the dogs, yeah."

Apparently, Stefani doesn't mind because she made the single artwork her profile photo and posted about the song with handclap emojis. The song's wedding themed music video will certainly do nothing to quell the rumors of an impending engagement. Check out Blake's latest here.

Katy Perry Shares Throwback Photo From 'Wannabe' Days

(Radio.com) Katy Perry has been on top of the pop world since her breakthrough album One of the Boys in 2008--but she started at the bottom. The always good-humored "Roar" singer shared a throwback photo from her teenage years in the studio, toiling and tinkering on an album.

"13 year old me. Wannabe popstar," Katy wrote. Her timeline places the photo somewhere around 1997--and the fashion speaks for itself. Perry rocked some low-rise jeans with a Dalmatian patterned belt, and her blonde hair was coiffed in a 'do reminiscent of "The Rachel" from Friends. She accessorized the look with record studio earphones and a simple black timepiece--the effect is adorably gawky.

Katy was primed for a major fashion evolution in the coming decades: It's hard to believe the photo was taken 20 years ago. See the throwback snap for yourself here.

The Beatles drummer told the BBC that although he didn't vote, he would've supported Brexit if he did. "The people voted and, you know, they have to get on with it," Starr explained in the BBC interview (via SPIN). "Suddenly it's like, 'Oh well, we don't like that vote.' What do you mean you don't like that vote? You had the vote, this is what won, let's get on with it.

When pressed on if he would have supported Brexit with his own vote, Starr made it clear that the move has his full support. "I would've voted for Brexit. Yeah, I would've voted to get out," he insisted. "But don't tell Bob Geldof," he joked in reference to the Irish singer and activist who has been very vocal in his opposition towards Brexit.

"I think it's a great move," Starr added. "I think, you know, to be in control of your own country is a good move." Watch a clip from Ringo Starr's interview with the BBC here.
