Taylor Swift Tops Non-Legal Age List 
Billboard magazine has Taylor Swift at the top of their “21 under 21” list.  The magazine says Taylor has the "potential to rule pop culture" over the next year.  The 20-year-old also had the auditorium at her former high school recently named after her.  She did donate $75,000 to renovate it.  That kid, you gotta love her.  Woof!
 
Brad Paisley Gives Kids and Corvette Lovers Their Wish
Brad Paisley loves to help children who are sick.  He’s been doing it a while.  Now he’s joined with the Kids Wish Network to raise money by giving away Corvettes.  According to The Boot one of the cars is a classically restored 1967 427 Corvette Roadster. The other car is a brand new, one-of-a-kind 2010 Brad Paisley Hero Edition Corvette ZR1, authenticated with the superstar's autograph and accented by tiny, hand-painted red music notes on the car's hood.
Tickets to enter the Corvette Dream Giveaway are just $10 and can be purchased by visiting Kids Wish Network. The lucky winner will be announced January 15, 2011.
 
Hope Alan Jackson Likes Vegemite Sandwiches
I hear they’re popular in the land down under.  AJ is heading to Australia for his first tour there and he’s taking Miranda Lambert for an opening act.  It won’t be till next spring but tix go on sale October 8.  You know there’s a lot of wild animals down there AJ.  You might need a good dog to protect you.  Woof.
 
Some People Just Can’t Wait For New Taylor Swift
And you don’t have to.  It’s pretty much the norm now, 3 weeks before her October 25 release of Speak Now iTunes will start releasing one single per week.  Release dates, like 8-tracks cassettes and LP’s, are becoming a thing of the past.  Pretty soon you’ll be able to get it before they write it. 
 
Loretta Lynn Honored for 50 Years In The Biz
All kinds of country music stars either showed up or had video tributes to Loretta Lynn last Friday night as she celebrated 50 years in the country music business.  It took place at her Coal Miner’s Daughter Museum in Tennessee.  Loretta Lynn, coal and Tennessee…it don’t get no more country than that.  Woof.
