New Music: Carrie Underwood - 'Little Toy Guns'

 photo 49260f09-8ad6-49b1-9a51-dd2c83d697a3.png

Country superstar Carrie Underwood takes on the power of words and the emotional damage that they can cause on "Little Toy Guns", the second of the two brand new songs featured on her recently-released 'Greatest Hits: Decade #1' album.

Written by Underwood with Chris DeStefano and Hillary Lindsey, the song just further reaffirms why she is the top spawn of 'American Idol' and why she remains the top female vocalist in any genre of music. We can only hope the second decade, is just as rewarding. Listen beneath:

As 'The Voice' begins to wrap up its latest cycle, coach Blake Shelton is upping the promotion for his latest single, "Lonely Tonight" featuring Ashley Monroe, by performing it on the latest episode of the reality competition and 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'.

The single is lifted from his latest studio album, 'Bringing Back the Sunshine', and stands as the highlight of an otherwise disappointing set. Watch both of their performances beneath:

Video: K. Michelle - 'Something About The Night'

R&B songstress K. Michelle pays homage to legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday in the 1920s-themed music video for "Something About the Night", one of the songs featured on her stellar sophomore album 'Anybody Want To Buy A Heart?'.

The video, which was directed by Child Basquiat, also seems to pull from Holiday's real life as it showcases the singer dealing with alcohol addiction (Holiday was addicted to heroine) and allows Michelle to show off her abilities (or lack thereof) as an actress. Watch it beneath:

Taylor Swift Crowned As Billboard's Woman Of The Year

Taylor Swift : Billboard Woman of the Year 2014 photo taylor-swift-billboard-magazine-woman-of-the-year-issue-december-2014_2.jpg

Capping off a super successful year, Taylor Swift graces the cover of December 13th issue of Billboard magazine as their Woman of the Year, where she dishes on taking a big risky move by switching genres and how some doubted that she could do it successful.

"Everyone, in and out of the music business, kept telling me that my opinion and my viewpoint was naive and overly optimistic -- even my own label," says Swift, recalling the run-up to 1989's October release in the vast living room of her penthouse loft in downtown Manhattan. "But when we got those first-day numbers in, all of a sudden, I didn't look so naive anymore."

No offense, but it is a lot easier to switch to the pop genre when you have been making pop music the entire time and simply labeling it as country. Nonetheless, she looks beautiful here.

As motherhood approaches, country superstar Carrie Underwood has announced that a baby boy is not the only thing that she will be giving birth to in the spring as she has teamed up with DICK’S Sporting Goods for the birth of a new fitness line.

'CALIA by Carrie Underwood', a fitness lifestyle apparel brand, will launch exclusively at DICK’S Sporting Goods stores nationwide and online beginning March 2015, and is designed for today’s woman who embraces an active lifestyle and demands more versatility.

“It has been such a rewarding experience working with DICK’S Sporting Goods on all aspects of the design process for CALIA, from choosing fabrics to making sure the look, feel and fit is right for active women,” said Underwood. “The inspiration for this line came from my desire to have clothes that seamlessly take me from workouts, to errands, to rehearsals and beyond. As someone who is passionate about health and fitness, I’m excited to offer women a wardrobe that will move with them and encourage them to stay the path of leading an active lifestyle.”
