Keith Urban Wishes His Rolling Stones Guest Performance Had Lasted Longer

Image Courtesy Capitol NashvilleKeith Urban got the chance to perform with The Rolling Stones in Los Angeles last year, but he didn't get as long onstage with the rock legends as he would have liked. The song Stones frontman Mick Jagger picked for Keith to play with them, "Respectable," was less than three minutes long.

Keith tells The Canadian Press, "It's like, bummer, I wish we could have chosen 'Sympathy for the Devil' or something that's a little bit longer."

No matter how long the performance ended up being, Keith will always treasure the memory of playing with one of the most iconic bands in music history.

"It was really fun playing with him," Keith says. "I just loved it."

Keith will ring in 2015 with a New Year's Eve performance at Niagara Falls for Canadian television.

Madonna's Manager Denies Leaked Track Is About Lady Gaga

Cliff Lipson/CBSThe British tabloid The Sun claimed last August to have seen the lyrics of an unreleased Madonna song, "Two Steps Behind," which it claimed was a takedown of Lady Gaga.  Now that the song is one of the Madonna tracks that have leaked online, the Queen of Pop's manager, Guy Oseary, has taken to Twitter to deny the song is about Mother Monster.

The Sun quoted lyrics -- which turned out to be correct -- that included the lines, “You’re a pretty girl, I’ll give you that. But stealing my recipe, it’s an ugly look/Did you study me hard enough? You’re never gonna be, you’re just a wannabe me...In your fantasy, you can try it all. But you can’t be me/You can walk the walk, even talk the talk. But you’ll always be two steps behind me.”

In response to a question from a fan about whether or not "Two Steps Behind" refers to Gaga, Oseary writes, "that song is NOT about gaga or anyone in particular," adding, "the song is an unfinished demo she had no intention of finishing or releasing along with many others..."  Oseary said in another tweet, "She has NO ill will towards gaga. It's nonsense She was listening to the Tony Bennett duet album last week and appreciating it."

Oseary also responded via Twitter to an editor at Billboard regarding the leak of the songs, saying, "we are working hard to solve this crime.. feels extremely violated to have her unfinished work stolen and released."

Lastly, Oseary said he couldn't answer any questions about an upcoming tour -- at least, not yet -- but revealed that a video for "Living for Love," the first single from Madonna's new album, Rebel Heart, will premiere the first week of February.

Maroon 5 Guitarist Says Playing New Year's Eve in Las Vegas Is a "No-Brainer" 

: Lisette M. Azar/CBSIn both 2012 and 2013, Maroon 5 rang in the New Year with two shows in Las Vegas, and 2014 is no different: Adam Levine and the band will welcome 2015 by performing at Mandalay Bay in Sin City December 30 and 31.  Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine calls the band's annual Vegas gigs "a no-brainer."

"I love playing on New Year's," James tells ABC News Radio, saying the tradition dates back to his pre-Maroon 5 days, when he was just a struggling musician. "I've always played on New Year's, ever since I started doing gigs back in Nebraska playing cocktail jazz [and] background music.  So I love playing on New Year's, and Vegas is the ultimate New Year's destination."

"It's a no-brainer: we always have a great time, invite our friends down.  It's gonna be a really fun night," he adds.

The Vegas gigs will also serve as a bit of a warm-up for the band's huge 2015 tour, which kicks off in February.  James says in addition to coming up with a setlist, the band is working hard to create a dazzling visual experience as well.

"We've been working with an amazing set designer -- a guy named Roy Bennett who's done some amazing work with Lady Gaga and Nine Inch Nails -- and come up with some really cool stuff," he tells ABC News Radio.  "I don't want to reveal too much, but I think it's gonna look better than any tour that we've done so far."  

The tour, in support of Maroon 5's current album V, begins February 16 in Dallas, Texas, with opening act MAGIC!

Christina Perri to Prepare for 2015 by Writing Her Annual "Letter to the Universe" Today 

Yu Tsai/Atlantic RecordsMost people make their New Year's Resolutions on December 31, and it's pretty much an informal thing, but Christina Perri takes a much more serious approach to the process.  The "Thousand Years" singer writes everything down in a special document, and she does it every year on the same day: December 29.

"I always write a letter to the universe.  I've done now it for the past five years," she tells ABC News Radio about her year-end ritual. "I make a list of intentions and goals and dreams and things, and, I kind of, y'know, work towards them all year."

"I guess they're like resolutions but not necessarily quitting things, just more like what I really hope to achieve and stuff like that," she adds.

Christina explains, "I only do it on December 29th every year.  I'm very superstitious, so on the 29th I'll sit and I'll look at my list for 2014 and I'll see what happened and what didn't and I'll probably roll over some things into 2015 and make up all brand-new ones.  But that has to happen for me on the 29th."  

So that means today, Christina will be busy writing her letter to the universe...and probably thinking about what's in store for her in 2015.  Having spent most of 2014 on tour in support of her album Head or Heart, she has no plans to slow down.  She tells ABC News Radio she plans to tour Brazil, the Philippines, Southeast Asia, Australia and more, adding, "If I'm lucky, I'll get to tour the whole world next year."

Alt-J Drummer Thom Green Says Band "Didn't Aim to Be Successful"

Image Courtesy of Gabriel GreenAlt-J broke through in their native U.K. with their 2012 debut album, An Awesome Wave. The record was awarded one of the U.K.'s most prestigious music honors, the Mercury Prize.

In 2014, Alt-J rode that awesome wave to the U.S. with their sophomore album, This Is All Yours, which debuted at number four on the Billboard 200, miles ahead of An Awesome Wave's peak position of 80.

"Over here [in the U.S.], number four as well -- top five -- for a band like us, it's pretty amazing," Alt-J drummer Thom Green tells ABC News Radio.

In addition to the impressive chart position, This Is All Yours gave Alt-J their first Grammy nomination. The record is up for Best Alternative Album, vying with albums from Jack White, Arcade Fire, Cage the Elephant and St. Vincent.

As honored as he is by all the accolades This Is All Yours is receiving, Green tells ABC Radio that the goal of Alt-J was never to garner critical attention or win awards.

"We didn't aim to be a successful band," he says. "Even though it happening is incredible -- we're very, very fortunate -- we never really prepared for that, and I suppose we are still kind of getting use to the fact that there's other things outside of just writing music that come with being in a successful band. We're happy for that, but, like I said, we never actually wanted that."

There is one status symbol of American music success that Green is looking forward to is playing New York City's Madison Square Garden. Alt-J will be headlining MSG on March 30 with support from Phantogram.

"You know people talk about breaking America, to me, that's what it is," Green says of headlining MSG. "If we sell it out, then that's incredible. For me, that means we are established in America."

Hunter Hayes Unplugs from the Road to Make New Music This Holiday Break

Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleHunter Hayes is trying to keep his calendar clear as possible this holiday season, but he is making a little music during his break from the road.

"I just wanna chill," Hunter tells ABC News Radio. "I just got a little bit of time to be creative in my little studio at home. Got some writers that are coming out to hang."

Staying in one place takes some effort on Hunter's part since he is used to the rhythm of being on tour.

He explains with a laugh, "I'm always wanting to be on the road, so for me to be away from that for a minute, make me miss it even more, is probably a good thing even though I don't want to admit that."

Hunter plays the first of two fundraiser shows for Nashville's Alive Hospice Friday, January 2 at the Bluebird Café.

Josh Turner Invites Fans to "Lay Low" Wherever They Are

Image Courtesy MCA NashvilleThe days after Christmas are a great time to kick back and relax, and Josh Turner's brand-new single, "Lay Low," is a perfect soundtrack for those lazy days leading up to 2015. Josh has been playing the song in his concerts for a few months now, and he's been getting a great response from fans.

Josh has pictured his fans incorporating "Lay Low" into their own lives ever since he recorded it.

He tells ABC News Radio, "If I had to guess, I would probably say that they would definitely be using that riding down the road just kind of thinking about getting away and turning the phone off and doing what the song says, you know."

At its heart, "Lay Low" is a love song and can be used to set a romantic mood no matter where you are.

"Even if you just stay home sometimes, honestly, with the one you love, I think you can lay low doing that, too," Josh says. "You don't have to go to the proverbial cabin in the woods."

"Lay Low" is the lead single from Josh's new studio album, due out in 2015.

Dierks Bentley had his biggest year ever on the road with the Riser tour. He headlined arenas and amphitheaters on a large scale for the first time thanks to his monster hit, "Drunk on a Plane." Dierks' album, Riser, also produced the #1 single, "I Hold On," and earned him CMA and Grammy honors in the respective country album categories.

Newcomers Maddie & Tae became the first female duo to score a #1 hit in eight years this year with "Girl in a Country Song." The anthem took country's male acts to task for casting women in a silent, nameless, supporting roles in their hit songs.

Newcomer Sam Hunt burst onto the scene with his hip-hop influenced debut album, Montevallo. Led by the #1 hit, "Leave the Night On," the project bowed at #1 on Billboard's Country Album chart and #3 on the overall Billboard 200 tally. He's currently headlining his Lipstick Graffiti tour.

The Year in Urban 2014 -- Rihanna Goes Nude, J. Cole Goes #1 & Other Stories of Note

Eric McCandless/CBSRihanna Goes Nude…All Year Long -- It seemed Rihanna was determined to wear as less and less as the year progressed. In January,  she showed off her goods in a topless spread in Vogue Brasil, and then again in March, when she graced the cover of French magazine Lui, in which she exposed her breasts while wearing pink bikini bottoms, a gold body chain and a bucket hat. In May, she earned the #11 position for Maxim's annual Hot 100 list and a month later, she became the talk of this year's Council of Fashion Designers Awards with her barely-there gown. After having her Rogue by Rihanna ad banned in England for being too sexy, she engaged in a Twitter spat with TLC's T-Boz, who reportedly called Ri Ri out for not being classy. In fact, Rihanna's not-so-work-friendly images later prompted Instagram to threaten to shut down her account if she continued to post such racy photos. But that didn't stop a hyper-sexual Rihanna from continuing to show off her body -- she posed provocatively in the November issue of Esquire UK., in photos shot by famed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth

J. Cole Earns Huge Sales Start -- The rapper's 2014 Forest Hills Drive has landed at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 375,000 "equivalent copies" -- the magazine's combined way of measuring actual album sales and accounting for on-demand streaming and digital track sales.  This is Cole's third number-one album and the highest -elling of his his career -- his last effort, 2013's Born Sinner, debuted at number two and sold 297,000 copies its first week, but that was before Billboard started accounting for streaming.  That means Cole has achieved the highest sales start for a hip-hop album this year, surpassing Rick RossMastermind, which sold 179,000 units, and Eminem’s Shady XV, which sold 130,000, both in their first weeks. The sum is also the fifth-largest sales week for an album in 2014.

Dr Dre’s Business Moves -- The already-very-rich Dr Dre became even wealthier in May when Beats by Dre headphones, a company he co-founded with Jimmy Iovine, was bought by Apple for $3.2 billion dollars. As a result, the hitmaker and business mogul raked in $620 million before taxes, according to Forbes, putting Dre atop its annual list of the world’s highest-paid musicians of 2014.

Kanye West, Kim Kardashian Land Vogue Cover -- After venting his frustrations with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour earlier this year, Kanye and his wife Kim scored the cover of the April 2014 issue, in which they were referred to as #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple. Their daughter North also made her magazine debut in an intimate family portrait.

OutKast’s Reunion Tour -- The rap duo kicked off their reunion tour with a headlining show at New York City's Governors Ball Music Festival his spring, marking their first New York appearance in more than a decade. The pair later announced plans to play more than 40 festivals throughout the spring and summer to celebrate their 20th anniversary.

Bobby Schmurder Moves Hip-Hop -- The man who had everybody from Chris Brown to Rihanna doing the Shmoney Dance released his debut project, Shmurda She Wrote EP, a five-track project that included the club anthem “Hot Ni**a” and the new single “Bobby Bitch,” as well as contributions from Rowdy Rebel and Ty Real.

Wu-Tang Clan Announces Million-Dollar Album -- The Wu found an innovative way to sell their album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, when  RZA announced the group wanted to release only one copy. “We’re about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music,” RZA said. “We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king.” The idea lead to Bone Thugs announcing their reunion album would be available at auction, starting at $1 million.

Tyga Invests in Rolling Papers -- The rapper announced that he'd invested $5 million in Shine Papers, a company that makes papers out of 24-karat gold. “Why burn regular paper when you can burn 24-karat gold?” Tyga said in a statement.
