By Andrea Dresdale

Credit: Ash NewellThe Academy of Country Music Awards, which air Sunday night on CBS, will feature some rock and pop elements as well.

Stevie Nicks will make a special guest appearance on the show, singing with “Need You Now” group Lady Antebellum on their song “Golden.” The two acts have also recorded a duet version of the tune, which is now available digitally.

In addition, Shakira will pop up on the show to duet with her fellow Voice coach, Blake Shelton, on “Medicine,” their duet from her new self-titled album. Speaking of reality show judges, American Idol’s Keith Urban will also be performing on the telecast.

Meanwhile, Sheryl Crow, who released her first country album this past year, will duet with country star Dierks Bentley on a song called “I Hold On.” Sheryl is actually nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year at the ceremony.

Taylor Swift, who straddles the worlds of pop and country, is nominated for the evening’s most prestigious award, Entertainer of the Year. If she wins in that category, it’ll be her third time, and she’ll make history: no woman has ever won that honor three times. She and Carrie Underwood …read more

Stevie Nicks to Perform on Academy of Country Awards Telecast Next Month

By Andrea Dresdale

Credit: Frank Micelotta/PictureGroupThe annual Academy of Country Music Awards telecast is usually pretty open about welcoming artists from genres other than country, so it’s no surprise to hear that Stevie Nicks has joined the lineup for this year’s show, which will air live from Las Vegas April 6 on CBS.

Stevie will sing with Lady Antebellum during the telecast, which will also include live performances from, among others, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, The Band Perry, and Florida Georgia Line. Blake is also co-hosting the show with country star Luke Bryan.

Stevie Nicks joining Lady A for the performance makes a lot of sense. After all, the Fleetwood Mac frontwoman appeared on CMT Crossroads with the group last year, and the two acts have stayed in touch and remained friends since then. In fact, Stevie has been spoiling Eisele [EYES-lee], the baby daughter of Lady A’s Hillary Scott, by sending her gifts of fabulous baby clothes.

“She’s definitely taken her wardrobe up a few notches than what she had originally,” Hillary told ABC News Radio last year.

Stevie Nicks Wants to Write Music for "Game of Thrones"

By Andrea Dresdale

Credit: Kristin BurnsNow that Stevie Nicks has appeared in the show American Horror Story: Coven, she’s got her eye on another popular fantasy TV series: Game of Thrones. Stevie doesn’t want to appear in the sex-and-violence-filled HBO drama, however: she’d just like to provide it with some tunes.

Speaking to Britain’s Radio Times, Stevie says of the series, which she first discovered when she was bedridden with pneumonia, “I would love to write some music for the show. I’ve written a bunch of poetry about it — one for each of the characters.” The Fleetwood Mac frontwoman adds, “I’m always looking for that kind of inspiration.”

For those who haven’t watched it, Game of Thrones is based on the epic, sprawling series of fantasy novels called, collectively, A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin. It concerns the struggle for power among a number of feuding families in the fictional land of Westeros, a quasi-medieval place where sorcery and dragons exist. The show’s fourth season will premiere April 6.

Asked why she’s drawn to Game of Thrones, Stevie explains, “The guy who wrote these stories …read more
