Tim McGraw is teaming up with a famous Hollywood movie director but it's not for his latest acting role. McGraw will team with Moneyball director Bennett Miller for the next installment of the live-stream music series American Express Unstaged. The September 16 show – which will originate from New York's Hammerstein Ballroom – is taking inspiration from from an iconic television special, the Elvis comeback special from 1968. The Unstaged concert, presented in partnership with Vevo and YouTube, will stream at amexunstaged.com September 16 at 9PM ET. (Photo credit: www.bigmachinerecords.com )

Little Big Town has announced their upcoming "The Pain Killer Tour" – which will kick off on November 8 in Youngstown, Ohio. The group also unveiled the album cover of Pain Killer, their upcoming sixth studio release, on the band’s Instagram page.  Pain Killer is set for release October 21 and features current hit single, "Day Drinking." "The Pain Killer Tour" will feature special guests Brett Eldredge and Brothers Osborne and will hit over 13 cities nationwide, wrapping in Rockford, Illinois on December 13.

Martina McBride’s "Everlasting Tour" has already played sold-out shows across the country this year and will continue through the fall with 40 additional dates — seven of which have already sold-out. Backed by an 11-piece band — including trumpet, tenor sax, baritone sax and trombone and a trio of back-up singers — Martina's live show brings the iconic sounds of the '50s and '60s from her 'Everlasting' album alive.

Garth Brooks has beaten his personal record for tickets sold in Atlanta. The record was previously set at the Omni, March 13th -17th, 1996, with 81,902 paid tickets. Garth has now surpassed that number and is still selling. Garth is now the only artist to ever sell seven consecutive shows at the Philips Arena. The previous record was held by Elvis Presley, with four shows.

Kenny Chesney played to over 40,000 fans on Saturday at his Flora-Bama show on the beach. Fans came as far away as Oregon, Ohio, South Carolina, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Arizona to hear Chesney play his only concert of 2014. Chesney’s 32-song set lasted two and a half hours. Mixing old favorites with some new songs. Filmed by Shaun Silva for a TV special this fall, Kenny and band took the tailgate vibe of his shows and distilled it. Bikinis, shorts, tank tops, sunburns and ball caps, the dress code was casual and the mood was great. (Photo Credit: www.newstinder.com )

Brad Paisley has been leaking songs from his new album, Moonshine in the Trunk, via Twitter for the past couple of weeks and he took it to a new level as he made a trip to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida Saturday to launch a new song from a historic launch pad. Paisley stood on the surface of Launch Pad 39B, where a Saturn V rocket once launched three American astronauts to the moon, as he sent out a tweet to leak, "American Flag on the Moon." He tweeted, "I’m at @NASA's Apollo launch pad in FL! Leaking my new song, American Flag on the Moon." and included a link to the song.

Brad Paisley tells Billboard magazine this week that his upcoming album Moonshine In The Trunk, has a bit of everything on it and will hold its own against todays kind of country music. He says, "It’ll fit in. It feels like modern honky tonk music to me. There’s a lot of alcohol and a lot of talking about the weekend and a lot of celebrating what is right in life in spite of whatever is going wrong. That’s kind of what honky tonk music always was. That will never die. That’s who we are as a format. It’s just new ways to say it." (Photo Content:  www.billboard.com )

Luke Bryan welcomes Brantley Gilbert on the bill for his show at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia Friday night, and fans at the concert are in for a special treat from the two Georgia boys.  The Philadelphia show is just the latest stadium date on Luke's That's My Kind of Night tour. Though the show has some similarities to his regular arena shows, Luke tries to make the most of playing such large venues.  Lee Brice and Cole Swindell are also on the bill for Luke's big show in Philadelphia.

Kenny Chesney is primed and ready to entertain his fans at the Flora-Bama Lounge on the Gulf Coast this Saturday. He hasn't been on stage with his band in almost a year, so Kenny plans to keep the show loose and just have fun with it all, and there will be no set list.  While the Flora-Bama show is free, fans have to have wristbands to get into the show. Those passes were all claimed very quickly after becoming available online a few weeks back.  Of note, show organizers are asking fans without wristbands to stay away from the Flora-Bama this weekend. The show will be taped for a TV special, so fans who can't make it can look forward to seeing highlights at a later date.

Even more country stars have poured ice-cold water on themselves as the challenge to raise awareness of ALS sweeps the nation. Florida Georgia Line got in on the act at their Wednesday night show in Missouri. Video of FGL taking the challenge was posted online Thursday morning, and they called out none other than Garth Brooks to accept the ice bucket challenge.  Keith Urban took the challenge then called out Eric ChurchTim McGraw and John Mayer to douse themselves with water next.  Justin MooreLuke Bryan and Lee Brice are among the other stars dousing themselves with cold water this week.

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.
