Taylor Swift likes to give her fans clues about her upcoming music and has done just that before the release and announcement of her last few albums. Well, it appears to be that time again as on Monday, Swift uploaded a very short video to Instagram along with the message, "So, here's your first clue..." The video shows Taylor pushing an elevator button reading '18' six times. So 18 is the magic number for details to come on Swift's very own timeline.

Frankie Ballard is preparing for his first headlining run on his very own "Light "Em Up Tour" as part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch with Skype tour that taps today’s hottest emerging artists.

Ballard has opened for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and longtime idol Bob Seger.

Rice is also poised to make his late-night national TV debut on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday. As part of the NRA Country promotion, fans can check out an exclusive behind-the-scenes video clip of Rice in a off-road adventure at While there, fans can register to win the ultimate "Americaning Prize Package" including: an autographed Ignite The Night CD, T-Shirt, beach towel, sunglasses, trucker hat, water bottle, and koozies.

Keith Urban welcomed his fellow American Idol judges Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr., to his hometown of Nashville Sunday and Monday to tape the show's Music City audition round.  Though they had little free time, Keith was full of suggestions about which Nashville hotspots Jennifer and Harry might want to check out. His recommendations included Robert's Western World on Lower Broadway and Pinewood Social, a restaurant with a bowling alley and private karaoke rooms. Keith also wanted them to check out the Country Music Hall of Fame, but he was mostly thankful the weather was pretty while his pals were in town.  Highlights from the Nashville auditions will be shown on the next season of American Idol, premiering next year.
