Dan + Shay are on a roll, to say the least.
The newest faces on the country scene – the super-talented (and really easy on the eyes) Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney – met and started writing songs together just 16 months ago. You wouldn't know it from their already impressive catalog, though: the prolific pair has written more than 90 songs, and one, "19 You + Me," is already a bonafide hit single. Meanwhile, Dan + Shay's debut album, Where It All Began, hit stores this week, and the pair might just take home the ACM award for vocal duo of the year this Sunday. Whew!

Sheryl Crow may say she's feeling lonely, but from the looks of her new video, the feeling won't last for long.
In "Callin' Me When I'm Lonely," the singer/songwriter is in fine form, jamming with her band in a live performance while working a slinky leather vest and matching pants (yep, she's 52).

For a long time now, Sunday nights have forced avid TV viewers to make difficult decisions. Do you DVR Mad Men or watch it live? Is it better to record True Blood or True Detective?
On April 6, fans will face another tough choice in the battle of must-see TV: the ACM Awards or Game of Thrones? This year, the country music awards show will air at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, hitting screens directly opposite the fourth season premiere of HBO's hit fantasy series.

Kellie Pickler has a confession: She hasn't really had the chance to put the 'sin' in Sin City.
"I've never been able to go to Vegas and be a tourist," she tells PEOPLE. "Every time I go, I never get to go and play. I hope to get to do that soon – just go and watch a show."
Hopefully that'll be the case this weekend, when the songstress attends the ACM Awards with husband Kyle Jacobs, who's nominated for single record of the year for producing Lee Brice's "I Drive Your Truck." "I'm a huge fan of the song," she shares. "I remember Kyle playing it for me when he first found that song for Lee, and I was like, 'This is going to be a big song.' So I'll definitely be in his corner [on Sunday]."

More than any other genre save rap, country music artists love working together. Whether through touring together, writing songs for each other, or even throwing a pal a verse or two, no group is closer than country's new gang of Georgia boys.
