Adam Graham The Detroit News Published 10:27 p.m. UTC Jul 18, 2018 Ronnie Dunn was in Cancun, sitting inside a hot tub at Reba McEntire's home, reflecting. It was 2014, four years after he'd called it quits with Kix Brooks, with whom he'd spent 20 years as part of Brooks & Dunn, the hugely successful country music duo that racked up 20 No. 1 country hits. Since splitting with Brooks, he'd released two solo albums but hadn't found the same success he had with his partner, and he was OK with that. He was 61 years old and it had been a hell of a ride. He had a glass of wine in his hand and not a care in the world. The sun was going down, both over the horizon and on Dunn's career. He turned to Narvel Blackstock, McEntire's husband and manager at the time, and told him what was on his mind. "I said, 'Narvel, I don't care if I ever sing again, man,'" says Dunn, on the phone last week from his Nashville home. "I said, 'I'm over it. I did it. I lived … [Read more...] about Brooks & Dunn slow down for Faster Horses

All’s fair in love and reality competitions. Apparently, just because Kelly Clarkson is the inaugural winner of Fox’s American Idol doesn’t mean she’s going to pass up an opportunity with another hit reality singing competition. PHOTOS: TV's Priciest Primetime Shows for Advertisers According to The New York Post’s sources close to the show, Clarkson will be joining NBC’s The Voice as coach Blake Shelton’s guest mentor in an episode airing in March or April. The two singers are both managed by Reba McIntyre’s husband Narvel Blackstock’s company, Starstruck Entertainment. McIntyre previously appeared as a guest mentor for Shelton on the first season.

Charlie Askew sings Genesis' "Mama" Say goodbye to Vegas, boys, and hello to Hollywood! For real this time -- not that NORAD-like structure in the seemingly always-overcast Northridge, Calif. No, this was it. The Top 20 and last stop until America decides the touring 10. Still, some of us found ourselves asking, where’s the sizzle? This was Sin City, after all. Why such doom and gloom in the guys’ song choices? Did someone’s grandparent die? Were they all unceremoniously dumped by their significant others in the same week? Are they feeling lonely? Homesick? Not knowing if they want the world to see them because they don’t think that they’d understand? No matter what the reason, the result was the male equivalent of VH1 Divas circa 1998. As for what the final five will look like on Thursday night, your guess is as good as ours. But for now, a recap of Wednesday’s 10 performers. Elijah Liu -- “Stay” (Rihanna): Nicki Minaj’s hands-down … [Read more...] about ‘American Idol’ Recap: Soaring Ballads and Near Meltdowns Highlight Top 10 Guys’ Round
