Taylor Swift won multiple awards Saturday at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles. Taylor won best musical collaboration, for "Everything Has Changed," featuring Ed Sheeran. Her followers, collectively known as "Swifties," were named the "fiercest fans." The 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards aired as a TV special on Sunday night.
ERIC CHURCH is still fighting against the scummy ticket scalpers who are trying to rip off his fans. He CANCELLED the orders for 902 tickets that were bought illegally to his September 16th show in Minneapolis . . . and he put them back on sale to the public the same day. He issued this statement: "A lot of acts just want to sell as many tickets as they can and they don't care who they sell them to. "I want my fans to be the ones who buy tickets to my shows, and I want scalpers to back off. I can't stop ticket scalpers completely, but I can definitely make it harder for them." Eric's not stopping there, either. He plans to closely scrutinize ALL ticket orders for his "The Outsiders" World Tour. So if you're planning to see him this year, do not buy your tickets from brokers or scalpers.
BRANTLEY GILBERT'S massive guns are shrinking as we speak. He had to stop lifting weights because he's suffering from an umbilical hernia. He said, quote, "I've got four tears in my stomach." Despite that, he's kind of in denial about it. He adds, quote, "I think I legitimately got it from singing." (Umbilical hernia happens when part of the intestine bulges through the muscle. It comes from chronic straining, like, you know, lifting weights.) (Photo Credit: www.pinterest.com)
I'm sure there are plenty of country stars who DON'T hunt or fish . . . but I swear COLE SWINDELL is the first one to admit he's not into either. It came up when he was asked if he's been hanging with LUKE BRYAN on their current tour. He said, quote, "[Luke's] a huge hunter and fisher and I grew up playing more sports. Heck, when I'm off I use my free time to just hang and maybe go to a game or watch sports. I'm just more of a sports guy. "It's funny, you sing country music and people think you're a huge hunter and fisher, but I just never really got into it."
