Eric Church had plenty to sing about Wednesday morning, when he became top nominee for this year's Academy of Country Music Awards.
In all, the singer-songwriter, whose 2011 album Chief contained the hit singles "Homeboy" and "Drink in My Hand," received seven nods, including song and single of the year for "Springsteen." He was followed by Hunter Hayes with six, and Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert with five each, including entertainer of the year.

It may have been a tribute to Bruce Springsteen but Katy Perry seemed to be the main attraction for some at Friday's MusiCares Person of the Year tribute at the Los Angeles Convention Center before Sunday's Grammy Awards.
The singer, who arrived at the charity event which raises money for musicians in need sans beau John Mayer, was interrupted by two young fans who asked to take a picture with her as she was talking to director J.J. Abrams. But that wasn't all: the pop star, who later hung out with Elton John, was approached by even more fans in the lobby at the show.

As a child of the '80s, I was exposed to Bruce Springsteen with Born in the U.S.A. But as I went to college, I became more educated in his music, and it led me on a hell of a journey.
He's writing about experience and real life. "Darkness on the Edge of Town" spoke to me: It was gritty, real and raw. And the escapism in a song like "Thunder Road" – everybody should want that sense of freedom sometimes. Seeing Bruce in concert, I'm always amazed at what the crowd gives and what Bruce gives.
It's a gang and it's a mentality, like, "We get it. We belong." It's a religious experience. Bruce heard my song "Springsteen," and I got a great note from him, saying he was a big fan. It just blew me away. The note is locked up. So if my house burns down, I know it's safe somewhere.

I'm not loving the new J.Lo single "Dance Again," but this James Brown-sampling Jam from '05 – the funkiest thing she's ever done – is still righteous.
"This Time" by Melanie Fiona
This banger kicks off The MF Life – the stellar second set from this R&B singer – with a boom.

Following their closing performance at Sunday night's Grammy Awards, Sir Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen made their way to the Foo Fighters' after-party at Fig & Olive Melrose Place. No sooner did they get there than Johnny Depp arrived and grabbed a glass of wine and a seat in the lounge, cordially greeting friends and fans.
At one point, McCartney approached Depp and mimicked his signature Pirates of the Caribbean Captain Jack Sparrow walk – which resulted in lots of laughter. Depp then joined the former Beatle and his wife for dinner; McCartney, a vegetarian, stuck to dishes like the spaghetti Mediterraneano and vegetarian paella. By the end of the evening, fast friends McCartney, Springsteen and Depp were seen discussing the night's big awards and all the winners.
