Sony/Arista recording family band, The Henningsens added one more to the tree. A husband.
The 23 year old front runner, Clara wed hubby, Jacob Calloway on her family farm in Illinois, last Sat.
“It just felt right to get married in the house that built me, the farm where I grew up,”
The two met some 2 years ago during a family trip to the Gulf Coast.
“A mutual friend introduced us one night when we were all hanging out on the beach,” said Henningsen. “I had my guitar and they asked me to play some music, so I sang the song my dad and I wrote for The Band Perry, ‘All Your Life.’ Later Jacob told me that the friend that introduced us kind of nudged him and said, ‘Dude, she’s totally singing right to you!’ I admit, I kind of was! So that became our song.”
Speaking of Beautiful Americans, Look for the Henningsens debut EP to be released, 5/28!

Blake Shelton Ft. The Pistol Annies “The Boys ‘Round Here” Official Vid!
Blake Shelton’s, “The Boys ‘Round Here,” is an absolute smash. And the video is equally as awesome.
Take some lush countryside, throw in a couple of good ‘ole boys, some cute country girls, a Lil Jon look alike, and of course, a couple of ice cold beers and you’ve got the recipe for success. No surprise here, Trey Fanjoy’s responsible for this one.
And if you’re Team Blake, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to catch a couple cameo’s from Raelynn.
Needless to say we like what we see. And Hear. Keep it comin’ man.
Not sure what’s in the water with singles we these days, but we like it!
Case and point: Brett Eldredge.
This guy has been MIA from the airwaves for quit some time. Which is a total shame. Especially after his top 40 debut single, “Raymond.” Which would have surely taken the likes of Shelton or Nichols to the top of the charts.
Fortunately, as of late, he’s back and better than ever.
His current single, “Don’t Ya” is fun, catchy and a perfect song to kick off the summer. The video is equally cute and a great little partner to a great single.
We’re hopin’ this one puts Eldredge back on the map. Way to go Warner, this one’s a homerun.
The Pistol Annies, a venture that kicked off with an edge and an element of surprise has… hit round two.
What will take it’s mark as the start of a revolution; edgy country chicks with attitude, followed in close range by the likes of artists like Kacey Musgraves and Annie’s themselves, Lambert and Monroe, has taken a melancholy mid-tempo turn.
And while that is not to say we disliked the album, we simply could have used one or two more upbeat, fun tunes that have made the girls infamous. And a bit more whit.
The album, though worth a listen for good songs, great production, and killer harmonies, is lacking the quirk and sparkle that once reeled us in.
And considering the fact that the single has already gotten a significant more airplay then it’s formers… it’s a little light.
With that being said, the theme is relevant and the songs ring true - only merely over done by the trio themselves - With the combined clout and star power, however, ‘Annie Up’ is bound to soar on up the charts and is sure to have working class woman raising a glass or six.
Stand out tracks include “Don’t Talk About Him Tina” and “Damn Thing”
Fresh on the heels of their number one hit, “Downtown” Lady A have released their 4th studio album - Appropriately named “Golden”
4th time’s a charm, in our book… because, for a while there, they had us shaking our heads. The group came barreling out into fame some 5 years ago with a killer debut album, and some great singles - stuff that was deep and fun and relevant and quality. But Somewhere between Owning the Night and Needing Us Now, they rode the hit train to blah city and almost lost us lost completely.
Without dwelling on the past completely… they’re back! The trio have somehow managed to come full circle with the second coming to their debut. A truly Golden, first time, good time, young love, plain old awesome record that evokes all the youth and spirit of a 20 something on the verge of freedom.
Most of the tracks range from mid-tempo ballad-esque reminiscent of early 2000’s Tim Mcgraw, calling up fond memories and old flames. And though that’s not what radio calls for here and now, it makes for a much better product.
Props to our man, Paul Worley, who had a hand in some great song selection.
Stand out track include “Goodbye Town,” “It Ain’t Pretty,” and “Get to Me”
