When Garth Brooks' music does go digital soon, it's a good chance he will break Elvis Presley's record for albums sold. The USA Today speculates that he'll likely become the best-selling solo act in history almost immediately — even before he releases his first comeback single. Garth's digital music will be offered only through www.garthbrooks.com. He said at the recent Nashville press conference, "People are going to mistake (what I'm doing) for giving it away, but I'm not."
Kristian Bush made his solo debut at the Grand Ole Opry on Friday night. Bush stepped up to the microphone and took the opportunity to introduce his voice and new material to the live audience saying, "I feel so grateful, to the Opry for inviting me, to the audience who heard me use my voice, and to my brother for joining me in both writing this song and performing it on such a hallowed stage. It was an amazing experience, like a roller coaster I want to get back on."
Tim McGraw has explained his actions, where it appeared he slapped a fan in Atlanta last week after she grabbed his jeans almost making him fall off stage. He told Canada's ET, "Sometimes things can lose context and perspective. I reacted in an instinctive, defensive way from my perspective of what was going on. I think it was an unfortunate situation I think all the way around. But it happened, it happened in a split second, it was pure instinctive reaction, I think you just got to move on. It is one of those things that happen, nobody feels good about it, but there’s nothing that could be done about it. You are in that position, you are out there, you are vulnerable, things happen and sometimes you react. There’s nothing to be said about it."
