Taylor Swift recently shared some time with Ina Garten as the celebrity chef invited the star to her New York home in the Hamptons to teach her to cook Swift's favorite recipes of hers: fish and a Pavlova, and to sip whiskey sours. Swift told Food Magazine, "I've never had a whiskey sour. Hey, [mom]. Come over here. We're day-drinking!" Taylor and the famous chef also have a lot in common in that they have the same pet peeve: people who don't eat. Swift said, "I'll cook for these boys, and they'll be like, 'I'm on a diet,' I'm like, 'I can't hang out with you.'"
Tim McGraw was handpicked to be the cover star of the upcoming July/Aug double issue of Men’s Health. The special summer issue is available for download now and will be on newsstands nationwide on June 24. Inside, McGraw reveals why he finally gave up on his partying ways, "When your wife tells you it's gone too far, that's a big wake-up call. That and realizing you're gonna lose everything you have. Not monetarily, not career-wise, but family-wise. "It got to the point where my kids were getting older, and it was way past the point that they noticed it. And I noticed that they noticed. That's enough to straighten you out. I drank too much. I partied too much. And did other things too much… chemically. No needles or that kind of stuff, but … use your imagination."
Casey James shared some new music with fans during CMA Fest a few weeks back and managed to give back as well. During his hectic week, he took time to play for children at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and get up close and personal with those dedicated fans. James told Taste Of Country, "It came about last year through essentially me and my manager sitting down and saying, ‘Is there something that I can do?’ because I’m a big fan of charity. This felt better to me than a lot of the things we looked at. And then when we started interacting with the folks here … I mean they really helped make this happen and they were like that last year as well so I was excited about working with them."
