Taylor Swift has broken yet another record. Tickets for Swift's May 30 show at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China completely sold out in only one minute, becoming the fastest ticket sellout in Chinese history. Taylor's show in Shanghai is the first date on the Asian leg of her "Red Tour," which will also travel to cities in Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore in June. All seven dates on the tour have sold out in record speeds. Swift's "Red Tour" made stops at sold-out stadiums and arenas across North America, Australia, and New Zealand through much of 2013, and also wrapped a run of sold-out shows in London and Berlin earlier this year.

Last night, Lady Antebellum took the stage with Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks to perform their song "Golden" during the ACM Awards. Now, fans can own and listen to their special collaboration together as a version of the song they recorded has just been released on iTunes. "Golden" left a lasting impression on Stevie Nicks, and she couldn't turn down the opportunity to work with Lady A on the song. For Stevie, "Golden" is one of Lady A's defining songs, much like the iconic tune "Landslide" was for Fleetwood Mac. Stevie said, "it's just that spectacular."

It's been over 2 years since Miranda Lambert's last album, Four the Record, was released, leaving everyone itching to hear new music from her. Now, with her fifth studio album, Platinum, set to be released on June 3, Miranda's fans will soon get the chance to hear that new music. And there's a good reason for the gap in between the release of Lambert's last record and her new one. Miranda says she didn't want to rush it at all. And by not rushing her next project, Lambert gave herself time make sure everything on the record was just right.

Jake Owen's English bulldog Merle has been the singer's trusty sidekick since he brought him home four years ago. But now with Jake's growing family, Merle is learning to live with a few adjustments. Owen tells People Country, "Merle doesn't get to ride shotgun anymore, but he's still my main man." Merle may be taking a backseat to Jake's family, but Owen reveals that the dog actually helped him know that his wife Lacey was the one. Jake says, "I could tell a lot about the girl by how much interest she took in Merle. If you don't care anything about my dog, then you really can't care that much about me. My wife fell in love with him the minute she met him, and he loves her. He follows her everywhere." (Photo Credit:
