Taylor Swift is a role model to millions of young fans — some of them sick, some of them not. And though she can’t meet every request, she always takes notice of heartfelt stories, like that of cancer patient Kevin McGuire, whom she invited to be her date at an awards show. Now, it’s 10-year-old Swiftie Mackenzie who is hoping to grab the ‘Love Story’ singers attention — and her story might just be the most touching of all.
If it takes a strong woman to age gracefully, then LeAnn Rimes is on par to grow older with the best of them. The country star turns 30 years old today, August 28, 2012, and while the big 3-0 puts some celebs into a tailspin, Rimes says that she is ecstatic to leave her 20s behind.

At 80 years old, Loretta Lynn is one country music legend who has only continued to perfect her sound and her style throughout the years — and she’s still going strong. Although she admits that modern country music is more like the old school pop music she’s used to, she likes the recent sound, and she’s quick to tip her well-worn cowgirl hat to new artists.
In a recent interview, the normally fun-loving country star Blake Shelton got a little subdued when he revealed that although coaching on ‘The Voice‘ has opened a few doors for him, it has come at a cost.

Kiddie beauty shows are already controversial, what with the poofy gowns and layers of makeup, but one mom may have taken pageant-crazy to the extreme on a recent episode of the TLC series ‘Toddlers & Tiaras.’ In fact, Lindsay Jackson might actually lose custody of her 6-year-old daughter, Maddy, thanks in part to a Dolly Parton costume, which included padding the little girl’s behind and chest to ‘enhance’ her lady parts to be more like the country singer’s notorious bust and rear.
