Dierks Bentley recently sat down with Larry King for an interview on Larry King Now. During the interview, King asked Bentley if he was aware of any criticism towards Blake Shelton for drifting away from country music and becoming a mainstream television personality. Dierks responded by saying that he hasn't heard of any criticism towards his fellow country star and wouldn't buy into it even if he had heard of it. And Bentley doesn't see Shelton's role on NBC's The Voice as a bad thing at all. Bentley knows Shelton personally and says that both he and Blake are country to the core.

The Doobie Brothers recently gave a surprise performance at Sony Music Nashville's Annual Boat Show during CRS week, but as it turns out the hit rock band has even more in store for Music City. The group will be teaming up with some of country music's biggest stars on an album of all-new recordings of the Doobie Brothers' biggest hits. Some of the artists to be included on the project are Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Zac Brown Band, Sara Evans, Chris Young, Jerrod Niemann and Love and Theft, with even more to be announced. The album has come together over the last few months with artists picking their favorite Doobie Brothers songs and recording them the group. The forthcoming album is slated for a release later this year on the Sony Music Nashville label.

Keith Urban recently revealed that he'll be headlining the first U.S. iTunes Festival at South By South West on March 15 in Austin, Texas. Keith made the announcement from inside a car after he left the American Idol Results show and posted the video online. The iTunes Festival will take place on March 11-15 and will also feature a performance by Willie Nelson.

There's been a lot of talk about WHY male artists have been dominating the country charts. KACEY MUSGRAVES would like to move the topic from discussion to action.  She says, quote, "I hope the female stigma will disappear.  It's absolutely dumb.  There are a lot of females out there making good music and it's such a fight for them to get heard.  It's nuts.  Naturally it's going to be a more male-dominated scene, I think, but it shouldn't be so hard to cut through."
