Is This the Real Reason Taylor Swift Has So Many Great Friends?

Image Group LA/ABCModel Karlie Kloss is a key member of Taylor Swift's squad, and is featured prominently in her epic new video for "Bad Blood."  But why is Karlie so tight with Taylor...and for that matter, how does Taylor manage to attract all these supremely talented, attractive and famous women into her inner circle?  According to Karlie, it's all about the food.

In an interview with Glamour Paris, Karlie is asked the question, "What is the best thing about being friends with Taylor Swift?"  Her answer?  "Taylor is an incredible friend.  She's fiercely loyal, and she's an incredible chef as well. So, that's probably the best part!"

Karlie recently told The Hollywood Reporter that she thinks the "Bad Blood" video -- which also features Cindy Crawford, Lena Dunham, Ellen Pompeo, Mariska Hargitay, Selena Gomez, Jessica Alba, Hailee Steinfeld and more -- should be turned into "a full-length feature film, premiering next year at [the] Cannes [Film Festival]."

Dolly Parton, Other Country Stars Salute Glen Campbell's "Rhinestone Cowboy" on Song's 40th Birthday

Image Courtesy of Webster PRGlen Campbell's smash hit "Rhinestone Cowboy" was released 40 years ago this week.  To celebrate the single's milestone birthday, Dolly Parton and a number of other country stars were filmed singing the tune for a video that's been posted at People.com.

Other artists featured in the clip include Tim McGraw, Clint Black, Darius Rucker and Sara Evans.

In 1975, "Rhinestone Cowboy" reached #1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Country charts, becoming the first single to accomplish that since Jimmy Dean's "Big Bad John" did it in 1961.

A deluxe, 40th anniversary edition of Campbell's Rhinestone Cowboy album was released this past March.

The Script's Newly Launched Tour Is All About "Getting Back to the Music" 

Simon EmmettLast night in Boston, The Script kicked off the North American leg of their world tour in support of their latest album No Sound Without Silence.  The tour will feature the band doing a more scaled-down version of the massive shows they've been doing in Europe, which the band thinks will be "really, really special."

"We’re actually going back to more when we first started," lead singer Danny O'Donoghue tells ABC Radio. "So we’ve stripped down a lot of the production. We’re really going, not...back to basics, but we’ve had the kind of massive, massive light show of Europe, and I think coming over here, it’s a small tour, but also I think it’s just getting back to the music, getting back to being a band again."

"I think it’s a really cool way for our fans to catch us as well," he adds. "It’s not that intimate when you’re playing Shea Stadium or you’re playing these places with Paul McCartney or whatever."  The Script have opened for the former Beatle legend several times, most famously in 2009 at New York's Citi Field.

"Playing these places now, they’ll literally be able to see the whites of our eyes," says Danny. "And I think it’s gonna be something really, really special for our fan base here in America." 

Keeping their fans happy is job number one for the Irish group: Script fans are intensely loyal and refer to themselves as "the Script Family."  Danny says many of them have been following the band for years, and the band doesn't take that for granted.

"They’ve watched us grow, we’ve seen them grow too. A lot of the fans, maybe they were 18 or 19 when they first started liking The Script and now they have kids and now some of them are married and some of them are -- they’re growing," he says. "I'm not, I don’t have kids, I’m not married yet, but everybody knows we value our fans more than, I believe, any other band. You know, we really do."

In addition to spending time with fans after every show, The Script is making sure the set list on this tour is full of hits like "Breakeven" and "Hall of Fame," as well as songs from the new album, like "Superheroes" and the new single "No Good in Goodbye."

"We don’t like bands that just go out and do the new album and kind of forget about everything else," guitarist Mark Sheehan tells ABC Radio. "It’s not like we get to be in America all the time so I think for us we’re gonna pepper some of the older songs in there as well and just kind of give a musical journey, so to speak, into the new material, so everybody can just hear them all, really, against each other."

You might think when a band like The Script goes on the road, the list of backstage demands include a massive amount of alcohol.  While they will own up to drinking vodka before the show, drummer Glen Power says it's just "to warm up the belly and get the blood going."  Other than that, Glen says, they keep it simple: all they ask for is "some beers...some healthy food and bits of salad and stuff."

Meanwhile, The Script joined many music stars last week -- including Hozier -- in tweeting their approval of the fact that their home country of Ireland voted in favor of marriage equality.

"We’re so proud of Ireland," says Danny. "A lot of people think because it’s a small island, it’s not progressive. But I think we prove every single time how open-minded as a country we actually are." "And independent, " Mark adds. "Because it used to be years ago that the people were joined by the church, where it’s not that way anymore. Which I think is a good thing."

The Script's tour wraps up June 7 in St. Louis, Missouri.  Then, after a date in Mexico, they'll head back to Europe for festival appearances and one very special gig: a headlining show at Croke Park in their hometown of Dublin, where they'll play for 82,000 people.

Brian Setzer's Tour with George Thorogood and the Destroyers Kicks Off Tonight

Image Courtesy of Brian SetzerMusic fan who loves that old-time rock 'n' roll likely will want to check out the new joint tour featuring former Stray Cats frontman Brian Setzer and George Thorogood and the Destroyers, which kicks off tonight, May 27, in Red Bank, New Jersey.  The 18-date trek will make its way across North America over the next few weeks, winding down with a June 20 concert in Saratoga, California.

Setzer, who toured with Thorogood and his band back in the late '80s, tells ABC Radio that the bill "works because our crowds overlap.  You know, the blues and roots and rockabilly thing seems to work together."

Brian says he's excited about the trek because it will give him the chance to introduce more fans to songs from his latest solo album, 2014's Rockabilly Riot! All Original.

"Part of the problem now with making records is you make a record and it just goes by and it's over," he explains.  "A lot of the big idea behind touring with George was [so] I could get out there and play these new songs."

As you'd expect, the album features songs inspired by classic late-'50s rock 'n' roll, but with some modern elements added in.

"I've always liked to mix the old with the new stuff," says Setzer.  "There's a lot of songs in here I don't think that would have been written in the rockabilly style of the '50s.  They just didn't play those kind of chords with it yet, you know?  It was too soon."

As for what his fans can expect to hear during the tour, Brian says that, in addition to selections from Rockabilly Riot!, he's planning to play Stray Cats classics like "Runaway Boys," "Rock This Town" and "Stray Cat Strut"; older solo gems such as "Ignition"; and covers of Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls of Fire" and Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues."  Among the Rockabilly Riot! songs he intends to perform is lead single "Let's Shake," which is his favorite track from the record.

Setzer also tells ABC Radio that he's hoping to convince Thorogood to join him on stage.

"I gotta corner George," says Brian.  "He doesn't like to jam, so I gotta corner him out and say, 'Come on! We gotta have some common ground here.'"

Setzer currently has no other shows lined up past the joint tour with Thorogood, although he tells ABC Radio that he may head to Japan later in the year for some solo shows.  He's also planning to mount a 2015 edition of his annual holiday tour with his Brian Setzer Orchestra, which he expects will kick off in the middle of November.  In addition, Brian has been working on a new recording project in Nashville about which he's expecting to announce details soon.

Here are all of the dates on Setzer's tour with George Thorogood and the Destroyers:

5/27 -- Red Bank, NJ, Count Basie Theatre
5/29 -- New York, NY, Beacon Theatre
5/30 -- Canandaigua, NY, CMAC

The Who Releasing Second in a Series of Vinyl Singles Box Sets in August

PRNewsFoto/Universal Music EnterprisesAs part of The Who's ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations, a second installment in a series of vinyl box sets featuring replicas of the band's early singles will be released on August 14.  The Reaction Singles 1966 collection contains five seven-inch discs -- four singles and a five-track EP -- originally issued on Robert Stigwood's U.K. label Reaction Records.

Each disc in the box set is pressed on heavyweight vinyl and housed in paper sleeves.  The records are packaged in a "lid-and-tray" box, and the collection also includes a booklet featuring liner notes by Who biographer Mark Blake.

The Who's Reaction releases came out after the band parted ways with producer Shel Talmy and the Brunswick Records label.  Among the singles included in the new box set are two that feature "Substitute" as an A-side, and, respectively, the songs "Circles" (renamed "Instant Party" for legal reasons) and an instrumental titled "Waltz for a Pig" on the B-side.  Interestingly, the latter tune wasn't recorded by The Who at all, but rather by The Graham Bond Organization -- a band Stigwood was managing at the time -- although it was credited to The Who Orchestra.

Also included in the vinyl compilation are the singles "I'm a Boy" and "Happy Jack," each featuring obscure B-sides, and the Ready Steady Who EP.  The EP contains various lesser-known tunes by the band, including the group's covers of the Batman theme, Jan and Dean's "Bucket T" and The Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann."

The Reaction Singles 1966 box set follows the April release of The Brunswick Singles 1965–1966 collection.  Two additional vinyl singles box sets, focusing respectively on recordings issued by the Track and Polydor labels, also are due out before the end of 2015.

Here is the track list for The Reaction Singles 1966 box set:

"Substitute" b/w "Circles," aka "Instant Party"
"Substitute" b/w "Waltz for a Pig" (B-side credited to The Who Orchestra)
"I'm a Boy" b/w "In the City"
Ready Steady Who EP: "Disguises" and "Circles" b/w "Batman," "Bucket T" and "Barbara Ann"
"Happy Jack" b/w "I've Been Away"

Canaan Smith Is Just as Romantic as He Seems Singing the Hit Song, "Love You Like That"

Mercury NashvilleCanaan Smith is closing in on the top 10 with his debut hit "Love You Like That," and it turns out Canaan is just as romantic with his wife, Christy, as the song would lead you to believe.

He says, "I have no problem buying her flowers and stuff like that, but I’d rather show her I love her just with taking her out on a cool date somewhere, being creative like that."

Christy is the inspiration for a lot of Canaan's songs, but he says, "I don’t get cheesy with it, you know what I’m saying? I try to make sure I’m coming home as the man that she needs.”

"Love You Like That" is the lead single from Canaan's debut album, Bronco, due out June 23.

John Legend & Chrissy Teigen "Want a Lot of Kids"

ABC/Rick PowellChrissy Teigen and John Legend have posed for a sensual new spread in DuJour magazine, which sees the model posing nude while frolicking in the ocean. In the accompanying article, we get a sense that the couple are finally ready for the next step: babies. 

The singer's wife reveals that they're open to starting a family.  "We want a lot of kids," she revealed in the mag. "I would love to have three or four of my own, and then adopt a few. So basically I'll be pregnant the rest of my life."

Unlike most women, Teigen admits she's actually looking forward to having a changing pregnancy body. "You look at Kim [Kardashian] and see how women's bodies just become so beautiful," she said. "[The thought] of getting boobs thrills me. And John looooves pregnant women, so..."

Teigen added of motherhood, "I feel like sometimes when people give birth, they give birth to a tiny part of their brain. Whatever they thought they would be goes out the window and they kind of lose their minds."

While she didn't say when she'd like to get pregnant, Teigen already has a social media rule ready for motherhood. "I am 1,000 percent not going to have an Instagram account for my baby. It will not have a hashtag. If I have a hashtag for my baby, just kill me," she joked.

Matchbox Twenty Planning "Something Big" for 20th Anniversary of Debut

Randall SlavinRight now, Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas is all about his upcoming solo album, The Great Unknown, his summer tour and his brand-new single, "Trust You."  But he hasn't forgot about the band: in fact, he says they're planning to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album in a major way.

"We never really stop. We obviously want to do something big for the 20th anniversary of our first record," Rob tells Entertainment Weekly.  That 1996 disc, titled Yourself or Someone Like You, spun off the hits "3am," "Push," "Real World," and "Back 2 Good," and has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.

"We plan to always keep making music and keep touring, just right now it’s impossible -- it really takes a lot of effort to do two projects at one time," Rob says of his future with the band.  Speaking about his current solo projects, he says, "Once this gets floating then I’ll feel a little safer to start talking about what that’s going to be. But there’s definitely going to be something on the horizon, especially for the 20th anniversary."

Rob's solo tour kicks off June 11.  So far, The Great Unknown doesn't have a release date.

Jake Owen Captures Vibrant, Live Sound on New Single, "Real Life"

RCA NashvilleJake Owen captured a vibrant sound on his new single, "Real Life," that makes it feel like the listener is dropping in on a jam session with Jake and his band. What you hear on the track is exactly what Jake sang in the studio when they recorded it.

"We just left it as is," Jake tells ABC Radio. "I think that's pretty cool. It adds, like, a live factor to it. "

Taking that approach in the studio fits in with the look at small-town life Jake sings about in "Real Life." No matter where you grew up, Jake thinks listeners will be able to find themselves in the lyrics of "Real Life." The song definitely struck a chord with Jake as he's faced several changes in the past few years.

He explains, "I've been dealing with a lot of real life circumstances lately: my father's sickness, fatherhood, getting married. These are the things I wanted to sing about, and I know my fans can relate."

"Real Life" is now available at iTunes.

Las Vegas Police Not Investigating Cause of B.B. King's Death

Credit: Kevin WestenbergDespite a number of local media reports to the contrary, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says it's not investigating the death of blues legend B.B. King as a possible homicide.  According to a statement issued by Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, the police department will not move forward with such an investigation "until such time as the Clark County Coroner determines Mr. King's death to be from other than natural causes."

The news comes after two of King's daughters accused the late guitar great's business manager and his personal assistant of contributing to his death, and called for a formal investigation to be launched.  In affidavits filed in Nevada on Sunday, Karen Williams and Patty King both say they believe their father was "poisoned" by the administration of foreign substances to induce his premature death, pointing the finger at King's business manager, LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson.  A lawyer for King's estate strongly denies the allegations in published reports Monday.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says it won't comment further about the matter of King's death "unless the Coroner advises that some form of criminality is associated with [it]."

In a statement obtained by ABC News, Brent Bryson, an attorney for Toney, said the allegations are "baseless and unfounded and are unsupported in reality."

The statement notes that King was monitored on a 24-hour basis by certified nursing assistants; was visited regularly by registered nurses; and was "evaluated by no less than three (3) independent doctors in the days before his death."

The statement features quotes from doctors including King's primary care physician, Dr. Darin Brimhall, who said prior to the musician's death, "...there is no action being taken to hasten the demise of Mr. King and every effort is being made to make Mr. King comfortable and supply him with his regular medication and nourishment."
