Luke Bryan isn't the only country superstar to take the ALS ice bucket challenge this week as on Tuesday Blake Shelton took the challenge along with Carson Daly from the Hollywood set of NBC's The Voice. After dumping water on each other, Shelton challenged Pharrell Williams, Gwen Stefani and his buddy Adam Levine, who happened to be there and did the challenge right away, then challenging his friend actor Robert Downey Jr. to take the challenge. Since the challenge began just a few weeks ago, it has raised more than 2 million dollars for the national ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) Association. (Photo Credit:  www.tasteofcountry.com )

The Third Annual Eric Church Band "Put a Club in My Hand" Golf Tournament was held August 4 at Gaylord Springs Golf Links. The event raised $112,864 for MusiCares, the charitable arm of The Recording Academy which provides a safety net of assistance for those in the music industry to help with medical, financial and personal emergencies. The funds for the donation were raised through 160 registered golfers, more than 45 generous partners and a silent auction featuring items from artists including Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Easton Corbin, Florida Georgia Line, Colt Ford, Taylor Swift, and The Cadillac Three, as well as the Nashville Predators and multiple NFL, MLB, and NBA franchises.

Taylor Swift confirmed during a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday that she’ll be performing at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards on August 24.  Swift was a promotion machine Wednesday night.  In addition to making the VMA announcement, the 24-year-old singer also plugged her August 18 Yahoo! worldwide live stream event. Swift told Fallon, “There could be one announcement or there could be multiple announcements.” It's most likely details about her brand-new album, or perhaps of the first single from that album. The live stream begins at 5 p.m. Eastern time.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's youngest daughter Audrey McGraw – who is just 12-yeard-old - may just be the next superstar in the family as a video has been circulating around the web of the youngest McGraw singing the Dixie Chicks' "Traveling Soldier" and this girl can sing. The performance was an impromptu one before one of Tim's concerts last month in Arkansas.
