Dove Cameron shares the video for ‘Breakfast’

Dove Cameron has shared her new music video “Breakfast,” directed by Lauren Dunn.  The video for “Breakfast” paints a picture of what the world would look like if gender roles were reversed and men experienced what many women face daily.

Said Cameron of the video: “I was feeling incredibly disillusioned watching the recent SCOTUS ruling and I couldn’t wrap my head around making a music video at a time when I felt so desolate. With this video, I want to show the disturbing contrast between stylized femininity and masculine power and the gender stereotypes that plague our social commentary. I want the audience to notice how strange it is to watch the roles be reversed and it was important to highlight how ingrained these roles really are in our nervous systems. This is a video to remind us that ‘how it’s always been’ should never be a reason for desensitization or upholding broken systems. Hopefully by re-contextualizing these familiar scenes, this video will encourage people to vote for a world where we leave gender discrimination as a thing of the past and stop bringing the past into the present.”

“Breakfast” is the follow up to Dove’s RIAA-certified gold pop song “Boyfriend,” which has over 349 million streams worldwide to date, peaking at No. 2 on Top 40 radio and No. 10 on the Spotify US chart since its release.

Noah Cyrus collaborates with Death Cab For Cutie frontman Benjamin Gibbard on ‘Every Beginning Ends’

Noah Cyrus has teamed up with Death Cab For Cutie frontman Benjamin Gibbard on her latest single, “Every Beginning Ends,” accompanied by a video directed by Lance Bangs (which you can view here). “Every Beginning Ends” will be included on Cyrus’ upcoming debut studio album, The Hardest Part, due out on Sept. 16.  To pre-order, head here.

Cyrus says of the collaboration with Gibbard: “I’ve always been such a huge fan, so it was pretty daunting to get in the room with him, but once we got to work it all came very naturally. We talked about past relationships, failed relationships, our parents’ relationships and relationships that have lasted forever. He told me his dad has a saying: ‘you have to wake up and choose to love someone every day,’ and it sparked this conversational song about the twilight of a relationship and the reluctance to admit that something has run its course. I relate to that in many ways, not only with me, but also just with my parents’ relationship. Writing about that gave me more understanding.”

Cyrus will also launch her first North American headlining tour, beginning Oct. 4 in Phoenix, AZ.  For ticket info, head here.

Hardy says he's “excited to see the impact” of “Wait in the Truck” as the song sees impressive early success

After Hardy dropped his much-buzzed-about duet with Lainey Wilson, “Wait in the Truck,” on Friday, the song saw an immediate impact at country radio — and the singer hopped on social media to express his excitement.

“Country radio, you guys are freaking incredible,” Hardy said in his video message.

“I'm very, very excited about the song. I'm just excited to see the run it's gonna have, to see the impact it's gonna have on people's lives,” the singer continued.

“Wait in the Truck” grapples with themes of murder and domestic violence, with Hardy playing the role of a guy who runs into a girl — Lainey — on the side of a road after she's been beat up. He finds the man who hurt her, kills him and eventually goes to jail — but still, he doesn't regret changing the girl's life for the better.

“[I'm] excited for the song to give people a platform to maybe speak out about stuff that might be going on in their own homes,” Hardy said when he first released the song.

Fans will get their chance to see Hardy sing “Wait in the Truck” live when he hits the road this December for his four-date Wall to Wall Tour.

Walker Hayes still texts his late father about his biggest career successes

Walker Hayes might be known as the good-timing “Fancy Like” guy, but fans of the artist's deeper cuts already know that his song catalog is full of tear-jerking ballads, too.

For example, Country Stuff (The Album) includes a searing track called “Briefcase,” which Walker wrote about his complicated, loving relationship with his dad.

The song's lyrics remember how his father sold real estate and was often too busy to spend time with the family. Once Walker grew up and became a father himself, he gained new perspective on the sacrifices his dad had to make to provide for his kids.

“He died right before this hit the rocket ship,” Walker explains in an interview on Southern Living‘s Biscuits & Jam podcast. “And it's been perplexing to me this year. Honestly, I still text him. I texted his number from the Grammys, and said, You know, I'm nominated for a Grammy.”

Though he never lived to see his son's biggest musical successes, Walker says that his dad was an instrumental part of his early days in music.

“My first gig was at the yacht club on Mobile Bay. The only reason I played that show is because he booked it. He called me and said, You're already signed up to play,' and he didn't ask me, he didn't ask if I wanted to, he didn't say practice,' he said, You're playing on Friday,'” Walker remembers.

“I played that gig and it truly changed my life, and he is the reason,” he added.

Garth Brooks says his music “takes on a whole different world” when he plays in Ireland

Garth Brooks is ending his Stadium Tour in style next month, heading over to Dublin for five sold-out nights at the city's Croke Park.

It's been more than two decades since Garth played in Ireland, but he says he still remembers how playing in the country elevates his live show.

“No matter how much you know or don't know about Garth Brooks, you go to Ireland, you see what they do over there, it's a whole new chapter,” the singer said in a recent installment of his Facebook Live series, Inside Studio G.

“People think they know who we are, they think they know the music. It takes on a whole different world when you hit Ireland,” he continued. “It's something to behold.”

The singer says he's particularly excited for fans who've seen him in other cities, who are now planning to make a trip to Ireland to catch one of his Croke Park shows. “Because get ready: You're about to see what I saw for the first time, and cried like a baby the whole time,” he recounted.

Though this string of shows concludes his Stadium Tour dates for the year, Garth added that he's hopeful he'll get to return sooner rather than later, saying he'd like it to be “one of many trips” he'll make to Ireland to perform in the future.

Eric Church describes his “love-hate relationship” with the term “outlaw” in first 'They Called Us Outlaws' trailer

Upcoming docuseries They Called Us Outlaws previewed its first trailer this week, and it offers a glimpse into the impressive array of country star guests sharing their insights into the outlaw country movement.

Among those is Eric Church, who reflects on the term “outlaw country” in an interview in the trailer.

“I have a love-hate relationship with the term outlaw,'” Eric explains. “The connotation of that is that you're outside the law. And the real artists, the real songwriters, I don't think they ever knew what the rules and laws were. They just did what they did.”

At the forefront of the outlaw movement were artists like Waylon Jennings, Billy Joe Shaver, Kris Kristofferson and many more. Some of the mainstays of the movement and their descendants appear in the docuseries, plus modern-day outlaw-leaning stars like Miranda Lambert, Tyler Childers and Margo Price.

U.S. Department of Justice finishes privilege review of Mar-a-Lago documents

The U.S. Justice Department has finished its privilege review of the documents seized from former President Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago.  The disclosure that the review is complete was made in a court filing Monday regarding a request from Trump’s lawyers for the appointment of an outside expert known as a special master to review the seized documents.

The Justice Department wrote in its Monday filing that the privilege review team has “identified a limited set of materials that potentially contain attorney-client privileged information” and has “completed its review of those materials.”  The DOJ also said it is “in the process of following the procedures set forth in paragraph 84 of the search warrant affidavit to address potential privilege disputes, if any.”

The filing came after U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon on Saturday indicated in a ruling that she would potentially grant Trump’s request for the special master, and gave the Justice Department until Tuesday to present its arguments. Cannon had also asked the Justice Department for an update on its review of the documents seized, and a more detailed listing of the documents in the trove.

NASA scrubs launch of Artemis I after engine issues emerge at takeoff

NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) and the Orion capsule, which were slated to launch as ‘Artemis I’ on a test flight to the moon, was scrubbed on Monday when engine troubles thwarted the much-anticipated liftoff.

Engineers detected an issue with one of the fuel lines as the rocket was being loaded with propellant. A liquid hydrogen line used to cool the rocket’s core-stage engines malfunctioned partway through the launch countdown, and the test flight was eventually called off after troubleshooting efforts failed. The SLS rocket’s four core-stage engines need to be cooled to cryogenic temperatures prior to launch to avoid shocking the system with ultracold fuel when ignited.

Artemis mission manager at NASA Headquarters Mike Sarafin said in a news briefing on Monday that the agency may try the launch again as early as Friday, if deemed safe to do so.  NASA Administrator Bill Nelson added that the agency will not go through with the test until the vehicle is ready: “When you’re dealing in a high-risk business — and spaceflight is risky — that’s what you do. You buy down that risk. You make it as safe as possible.”

NASA officials said the rocket and spacecraft are currently “in a stable, safe condition,” adding that engineers will continue to gather data from the vehicle on the launch pad. The agency is expected to hold another briefing Tuesday to discuss initial findings from the investigation.

Dierks Bentley's got a new venue for Seven Peaks, and it's making the festival feel all shiny and new

Dierks Bentley is headed back to Colorado for the 2022 installment of his Seven Peaks festival this Labor Day weekend, but there will be a big difference between this year and the last time Seven Peaks hit the stage: It's a brand-new location.

“It's about 30 minutes down the road from the previous location in Buena Vista. So, there's gonna be little surprises for all of us, you know?” Dierks says.

The singer doesn't mind being kept on his toes. On the contrary, he says preserving the newness is a key part of longevity in the music business.

“Although I've played this venue probably six or seven times, I want to walk out there — one of the reasons why I don't soundcheck is I want to walk out there feeling the joy and wonder of, Whoa, look at this place,'” Dierks explains.

“That feeling, you can't fake that,” he continues. “People can tell when you're just, you know, going through the motions. But when you really walk out there and you're like, This is so cool, wow,' — that's kind of a neat thing.”

Dierks is always chasing that first-time feeling, and not just in his show venues — he tries to find it in his song releases, too. That's why he's so excited about his new single, “Gold.”

“Gold' almost feels like a first single off my first-ever record in some way,” he explains. “And this festival, even though we've done it for a few years now, it's going to feel like a brand-new festival because it's a brand-new location. So it's all kind of new to us again, which is a great feeling.”

Seven Peaks Festival is set for September 3-5.
