"Rose Garden" Singer Lynn Anderson Dead at Age 67

CMA/Donn JonesCountry singer Lynn Anderson, best known for her 1970 Grammy-winning crossover hit "Rose Garden," died of a heart attack Thursday night at Nashville's Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  She was 67 and had been hospitalized for pneumonia following a trip to Italy.

Anderson was born September 26, 1947, in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and raised in California.  Her parents were songwriters Casey and Liz Anderson, and Liz wrote the Merle Haggard hits "(My Friends Are Gonna Be) Strangers" and "I'm a Lonesome Fugitive."

In 1966, Lynn released her debut single, a duet with Jerry Lane called "For Better or for Worse."  It failed to chart, but she scored her first top-5 country hit, "If I Kiss You (Will You Go Away)," the following year.  Anderson went on to appear on ABC's The Lawrence Welk Show as a regular in 1967 and 1968.

With the release of her first #1 country hit, the Joe South-penned "Rose Garden," Anderson became a crossover star as the song hit #3 on the pop chart.  She also won a Grammy Award for the song, in addition to being named the Female Vocalist of the Year at the 1971 CMA Awards.  In addition, Lynn took the Female Vocalist of the Year honors at the ACM Awards in 1967 and 1970.

Anderson went on to chart nearly 60 more country hits and had her own CBS television special in 1977. Her career began to fade by the early '80s, and Anderson scored her final top 10 country hit in 1983 with the Gary Morris duet "You're Welcome to Tonight."  She released albums sporadically in recent years with her most recent project, Bridges, coming out just last month.

Anderson also faced multiple arrests for DUI in recent years, including a September 2014 arrest in Nashville.  She is survived by her father, three children and four grandchildren.

Several stars have shared their thoughts on Lynn Anderson's contribution to country music:

Reba: "I am a huge fan of Lynn’s.  She was always so nice to me. She did so much for the females in country music.  Always continuing to pave the road for those to follow. I loved her music and her love for horses. 'Rose Garden' was a song I sang in high school in our Kiowa Cowboys High School band. She will be missed."

Duane Allen of The Oak Ridge Boys: "It was a pleasure to record with Lynn.  I remember the first time we saw her at the Utah State Fair.  We were playing the small stage and we finished early enough to see her on the main stage.  She owned Utah that night.  She didn't stop until she won everybody's hearts including mine. She sang her way to heaven."

K. Michelle Cancels Joint Tour with Azealia Banks

Image Courtesy JimmyFontaine/AtlanticK. Michelle and Azealia Banks have officially called off their joint tour, just a couple months before it was scheduled to begin.

Azealia announced the bad news via Twitter and briefly explained why their highly anticipated trek was canceled. "I just got an email from @kmichelle team and she is unfortunately unavailable this fall so she is canceling our tour," Banks tweeted.

So it is with a broken heart, I have to postpone the tour with me and @AzealiaBanks at this time." She adds: "There is absolutely no drama between me and Azealia. We have a mutual respect for each other as women and artists. I can't wait to get in the studio with her and for you all to hear what she's been working on. Secondly, it wasn't low ticket sales."

Report: Missy Elliott Will Be a Mentor on "The Voice" Season Nine

Atlantic Records

Missy Elliott is coming to The Voice. The rapper will reportedly appear on season nine of the NBC singing competition series as a mentor to Pharrell Williams' team, a source tells Us Weekly

The pairing shouldn't come as too big of a surprise, though, especially since the twohave been working on Missy's upcoming album, her first since 2005's The Cookbook. Pharrell, who is executive producing the set, recently posted a Twitter photo of himself alongside the female emcee.

In addition, the source adds that pop singer Selena Gomez will serve as Gwen Stefan's mentor, rock legend John Fogerty will help out Adam Levine’s team, and country star Brad Paisley will be the mentor for Blake Shelton’s contestants.

The mentors appear on the show during the battle rounds, right after blind auditions. The new season of The Voice returns on September 21, at 8 p.m. ET.

Meek Mill Slams Drake in New Diss Track, "Wanna Know" 

Image Courtesy Warner Bros. RecordsIt may have taken Meek Mill nearly a week to respond, but the rapper has finally issued a retaliation song called "Wanna Know," which takes aim at his new nemesis Drake, who recently unleashed two scathing tracks targeting Meek, "Charged Up" and "Back to Back."

As expected Meek continued to bash Drizzy for allegedly hiring a ghostwriter named Quentin Miller to write his rhymes, but he also gave everyone a history lesson on Drake's previous beefs, including his fight with Chris Brown: "When that s*** went down with Chris, you wrote a check," Meek raps over the Jahlil Beats and Swizz Beatz production.

After alluding to Drake’s breakup with Rihanna, Meek then points out Drake's his brawl with Diddy at a nightclub last year -- "Puffy almost caught a domestic when he smacked that b****" -- and brought up the unconfirmed rumor that Drake was urinated on by T.I.’s friend at the Takers premiere.

Meek even hints that he's just getting warmed up: "Real ni**** back in style / This s*** is lit / This that Ja Rule s*** and 50 Cent."

Although Meek referred to Drake as a "buttercup" and compared him to the infamous Milli Vanilli, the Toronto rapper doesn't seem too concerned. Soon after the track was released, Drake posted a picture of himself laughing on Instagram and then later reminded everyone about his OVO Festival this weekend.

Carly Rae Jepsen Releases Electro-Pop Tune, "Warm Blood"

Matthew Welch Carly Rae Jepsen wasn’t lying when she said her new album would be heavily ‘80s influenced. She debuted the latest track from the upcoming Emotion, and it’s pure ‘80s-style synthpop.

The song, called “Warm Blood,” features Carly’s breathy vocals over a danceable electronic beat.

She sings, “Warm blood feels good, I can’t control it anymore/ Sweet one, you should stop me there but I keep on talking/ I would throw in the towel for you, boy/ Cause you lift me up and catch me when I’m falling for you.”

So far, Carly’s released five songs from her second album, including “I Really Like You,” “Run Away with Me,” “Your Type,” and the title track. Emotion arrives August 21.

In an interview with The New York Times, Carly says she was initially recording a folkier pop album, but she ditched that in favor of a more electronic sound. She says she wants to continue to push boundaries with her music.

“I want to go even weirder on the next album,” she says. “My desire now is to see how far I can stretch pop.”

Gigi Hadid & Martha Hunt Defend Taylor Swift After Indie Singer's Twitter Diss

Jason Merritt/Getty Images via ABCSorry, haters. There’s no “Bad Blood” between Taylor Swift and her besties. Taylor’s model pals Gigi Hadid and Martha Hunt came to the singer’s defense recently after indie singer Edward Droste tweeted a less-than-flattering tabloid article about the star.

The article claims Taylor is a controlling friend and has a list of demands before any of her pals join her on stage. It even says that Gigi was “talking trash behind Taylor’s back.”

Edward, a member of the band Grizzly Bear, posted a picture of the tabloid item and wrote, “Obsessed that people are catching on.”

Gigi and Martha quickly chimed in to set the record straight. “lol that's the biggest load of bs. ‘Swift insider’ HA you wish you knew,” Gigi tweeted in response to Edward’s post. “Stop trying to create drama where there is none.”

Martha added, “Bull****. The day I met her I was impressed how open of a heart she had and she has remained that way since. Don't knock her.”

Final Three Led Zeppelin Reissues Hit Stores Today; Jimmy Page Says Project Was "Right Thing to Do" for Fans

Atlantic Records/Swan SongToday marks the culmination of the Led Zeppelin reissue campaign, as remastered and expanded versions of the band's final three studio albums -- 1976's Presence, 1979's In Through the Out Door and 1982's Coda -- get their release.  Guitarist Jimmy Page oversaw the project, and says it was done out of respect for the band's fans and their desire to have as much material as possible from the British rock legends.

"There's such in affection for Led Zeppelin music within the audience, it could only be the right thing to do to put out a real authoritative package," Page tells ABC Radio.  "And here we are at the end of it."

As with the previously six Led Zeppelin reissues, the deluxe editions of Presence, In Through the Out Door and Coda all come with "companion audio" discs featuring previously unreleased recordings.  Page says that because these extra tracks are now available, there's "double the amount of [Led Zeppelin] studio information and studio material that there was in the first place."

Page says another important aspect of the campaign is that the recordings were remastered for all available formats, including high-quality vinyl and high-res digital audio.

"The last time that Led Zeppelin music was remastered it was for the advent of CDs over 20 years ago," he explains.  "I wanted to really approach every way that you could listen to it outside of MP3 [and] let it be available for people who want to hear it…with all the distance in it and the depth and the 3D picture of the mixing, etc, etc."

Speaking about some of the highlights of the individual albums being reissued today, Page points out that the deluxe Presence includes an interesting unreleased instrumental called "Pod" that centers on a piano part played by John Paul Jones.

"It's really quite beautiful, but you can see why it didn't sort of make its way onto the album," he says, noting that it didn't fit in since most of the music on Presence was "guitar driven."

Interestingly, Page recalls that the band's follow-up to Presence, In Through the Out Door, ended up being a keyboard-driven album because Jones had brought several songs that he'd written on the keys.

Led Zeppelin's swan song, Coda, was a collection of unreleased tracks that spanned the band's career and originally was released after the group had broken up in the wake of drummer John Bonham's death.  The new deluxe editions of Coda include two full discs of unreleased companion audio.  A couple of these tracks come from sessions that Page and Robert Plant did in 1972 in India with a group of local musicians dubbed the Bombay Symphony Orchestra.  One of the songs was a version of "Friends," a tune that first appeared on 1970's Led Zeppelin III

"When I wrote ['Friends'] I was thinking of Indian music at the time, and the structure in it was very similar, to me, to Indian music," Page tells ABC Radio.  "And I wanted to try that out with core musicians and see just how possible it would be to pull it off.  Well, I managed to do it."

The album's first single is "Forbidden Nights," which is one of two songs written by Costello that appear on Introducing Darlene Love.  The record also features two tracks penned by Springsteen and three written by Van Zandt.  In addition, Love recorded a version of the 1966 Ike & Tina Turner hit "River Deep, Mountain High," a tune co-written and originally produced by Phil Spector.

Love was one of the main voices of Spector's Wall of Sound hits, including her solo holiday classic "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)" and The Crystals' "He's a Rebel" and "He's Sure the Boy I Love."  She also was a member of the vocal group The Blossoms, and she was among most in-demand studio backing singers during the 1960s and early '70s.  In 2011, Darlene was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and her career was showcased in the Oscar-winning 2013 documentary, Twenty Feet from Stardom.

Here is the complete track list of Introducing Darlene Love, including the artists who wrote each song:

David Gilmour Premieres Animated Video for New Single, "Rattle That Lock"

PRNewsFoto/Columbia RecordsAn official video for David Gilmour's latest solo single, "Rattle That Lock," the title track to his upcoming studio album, has premiered on the longtime Pink Floyd singer/guitarist's official website and YouTube channel.  The animated clip was created by Alasdair Brotherston and Jock Mooney of the London-based Trunk Animation studio and features scenes inspired by John Milton's Paradise Lost.

The ominous, graphically striking video depicts Satan's fall from the Kingdom of Heaven and his journey through the realms of Pandemonium, Purgatory and Chaos before he inevitably brings corruption to the Earth.  The theme of the clip reflects the lyrics of "Rattle That Lock," which were written by Gilmour's wife, Polly Samson, and were inspired by Book II of Paradise Lost.

A team of 12 animators and artists was assembled to work on the hand-drawn video, which took more than three months to complete. 

The Rattle That Lock album will be released on September 18.  Gilmour has announced a series of 2016 North American tour dates in support of the record that runs from a March 24 show in Los Angeles through an April 12 concert in New York City.

Eric Church Opens Nashville's New Ascend Amphitheater with First of Two Acoustic Shows

EB Media PREric Church opened Nashville's brand-new Ascend Amphitheater Thursday night with a sold-out acoustic show. According to The Tennessean, Eric kicked off the show by playing "Smoke a Little Smoke" and "Talladega" alone on his guitar. An onstage bar gave band members a place to hang out until Eric called them up to join him throughout the night.

Since the show was acoustic, the audience often was louder than Eric's singing, and that came in handy when Eric messed up the words to some of his more obscure songs.

Eric closed out the night with a brand-new song, "Three Year Olds," inspired by his oldest son, Boone. Before playing the song, Eric told a story about Boone throwing a fishing rod and a tackle box into the water during a fishing trip. He told the crowd, "I am 38 years old and I did not know a fishing pole would sink faster than a tackle box. I also learned a garbage can is a good place to hide truck keys.”

The lyrics to "Three Year Olds" includes the lines, "Say I love you all day long/When you’re wrong you should just say so/I learned that from a three year old.”

Eric will wrap up his two-night stand at Nashville's Ascend Amphitheater with another sold-out acoustic show Friday night.
