“Let’s funk it up,” Eric Church called out near the halfway point of his concert in Omaha, Nebraska, on Friday night, the first of two shows he’ll perform in the city to launch his 2019 Double Down Tour. The band followed his lead, kicking off an especially greasy version of “Hangin’ Around,” a track off […]

Kanye West recently hosted a second Sunday Service, the rapper’s “inspirational jam session” that features a choir delivering gospel renditions of West songs. West sat on a stool in the middle of the performers for the majority of the session, but at the 36-minute mark of the above video (via Vulture), the rapper joined the […]

This week, Post Malone returned to Number One on the Hot 100. He got there with “Sunflower,” a light, breezy collaboration with Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee. It’s not a huge surprise that this song topped the charts. “Sunflower” was recorded for the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse soundtrack, a movie that to date has made about $150 […]

In the summer of 2017, around the time that Buzzfeed News reported that the R&B singer was supposedly holding women in his […]

Cody Johnson is certain his time has come. The former prison guard and rodeo rider from Huntsville, Texas (pop. 38,000), has earned his chance at country music stardom the hard way, racking up streams and building a fan base as a true-blue independent for more than a decade. Now, with the release of Ain’t Nothin’ […]

It was 25 years ago when Billie Joe Armstrong first made his guitar sound like “dookie.” Now, he’s ready to (excuse the pun) dump his formula for the perfect gut-busting sound all over guitarists worldwide. Armstrong teamed up with effects company Jim Dunlop on a new guitar pedal for its MXR brand that sports the […]
