When it comes to the Super Bowl, Jason Aldean admits he doesn’t have a dog in the fight between Seattle and New England because he’s more of a college ball fan.  He tells Radio.com, “You know, when it comes to the NFL, I’ve never been over-the-top on any team.  I keep up with the (Atlanta) Falcons, because I’m from Georgia, and the Titans, (after) moving to Tennessee.  I’m not really a diehard one way or the other for any team, but those are kind of the two teams that I really watch.”

 

Jason prefers to spend his time watching his beloved Georgia Bulldogs play football on Saturdays, but he says, “I would like to see the Falcons win a Super Bowl at some point, just the fact that they’re from Georgia.”

 

While Jason won’t be cheering for any particular team this Sunday, he might be at the game since he’ll be in Phoenix on the 31st to play “The Night Before” concert with Florida Georgia Line and Dierks Bentley at US Airways Center.

 

Lady Antebellum Share Their Favorite Football Watching Foods

The Super Bowl is this Sunday, and when it comes to football watching foods, Hillary, Charles and Dave of Lady Antebellum definitely have their favorites. “Honestly, chips and salsa, salsa or cheese dip or something. That’s like what I always go for,” says Hillary.  “I could eat that every meal. No joke.”

 

Dave prefers something a little more hearty like a big ole burger soaked in Dale’s sauce.  Charles says his favorite football refreshment is, “Cold beer! A couple of little finger foods, but without cold beer, it’s not football watching.”

 

Chances are they’ll all be enjoying some of their favorite football foods this Sunday when the Seattle Seahawks take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX.

Carrie Underwood has recorded a special version of her Sunday Night Football theme song, “Waiting All Day on Sunday Night” for the Super Bowl.  The special version, “Waiting All Day for a Super Bowl Fight,” will open NBC’s Super Bowl XLIX broadcast this Sunday, February 1st, before the Seattle Seahawks take on the New England Patriots.  Besides new lyrics, the special opening theme song video will also include a special set design.

 

“I’m so honored to again be a part of the Super Bowl, this time joining NBC Sports in helping kick everything off!  I can’t wait to watch the game!,” says Carrie.

 

Because she is expecting her first child in the next couple of months, Carrie has said she will probably be watching the game from the comfort of her own home with some friends.

Eric Church Feels Confident Rather Than Vindicated by Success, Including Latest #1 Song

Eric Church’s latest single, “Talladega” has claimed the #1 spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase country songs charts this week.  For a guy who toiled for several years to build a grassroots fan base and took several years before experiencing the incredible success he’s enjoying now, it might seem like vindication, but Eric says, “I think the me a few years ago would have told you vindication, but there’s a maturity thing that I think happens.”

 

Eric isn’t exactly sure when that maturity happened, but now he feels more confident than vindicated.  “There’s very few things in my life I feel like I know what I’m doing, and at least right now, when it comes to making albums and touring and putting on a show and playing a show I feel confident in that,” says Eric. “So I would have told you vindication a long time ago, but I think now it’s just part of the journey.”

 

One word he wouldn’t use to describe selling out venues, winning awards, scoring platinum album and #1 singles is victory.  Eric says, “Victory is probably the wrong word because we’re not there.  I don’t think the finish line’s there.  But I think now it’s just about getting involved in the experience of what the music is, what it means to me and being able to impart that to the crowd.”

 

Eric is continuing The Outsiders World Tour, and on February 8th he will perform on the GRAMMY Awards, where he is nominated for three awards, including Country Album of the Year.  The Grammy Awards will air live from Los Angeles on CBS.

Kenny Chesney Scrambles to Open More Seats When Two Nashville Shows Sell Out Instantly

As soon as tickets for Kenny Chesney’s two Nashville shows, which will open The Big Revival Tour, went on sale, they were gone.  Pre-sale demand was so high when he only had one show planned on March 26th, that they decided to add a second show on March 27th, before tickets for either show went on sale to the general public.

 

“To do back-to-back nights in Nashville, that’s always a good thing… It’s too cold for a stadium show, so that’s the next best thing!” says Kenny.  “Sometimes it seems like Nashville lands where it lands… and it doesn’t stand out. We don’t get to play Nashville very often, and after the inspiration and creativity that went into making this record, I wanted to kick-off The Big Revival Tour in the place the music came together.”

 

Even after both Nashville shows sold out almost instantly on Friday, Kenny’s tour promoters and management tried to figure out how to open up even more seats in the venue.  With a caveat that some of the seats would have obstructed views, they were able to make a few more seats available for die-hard fans who would do anything just to be at the show.
