A memorial service for Mindy McCready's life partner, David Wilson, was held January 19 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. E! News notes that the country singer and the nine-month-old son she had with Wilson, Zayne, did not attend.
A friend of Wilson's tells E! News, "She might have wanted to deal with it in her own way." The source adds, "I think she wanted something more private with her family in Heber Springs."
Wilson, who was 34, died January 13 after authorities responded to his Heber Springs home on a report of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Zac Brown Band Is Headed To Daytona!
Zac Brown Band has signed on to perform the Daytona 500 Budweiser Pre-Race show at the Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, February 24. The race will broadcast live that afternoon at 12 p.m. CSTon Fox, and Zac Brown Band member Clay Cook has been tapped to sing the national anthem at the big event.
Zac Brown Band is just the latest big-name act to play the pre-race concert at the Daytona 500, following the likes of Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Bon Joviand Kelly Clarkson.
Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman make a point to be with each other as much as possible, but sometimes their relationship happens virtually when they're on opposite sides of the globe. That's exactly what happened Sunday when Keith got to their house in Sydney, Australia and turned on the TV to see his wife walk the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles.
"I got to see what she was wearing," Keith tells Sydney's Daily Telegraph. "I hit pause on one shot and stood there staring at her...and started crying. I hated the fact she was there without me, on her own."
Keith and Nicole were reunited Monday in Sydney, but they didn't have much downtime. Keith's Australian tour continues Thursday in Sydney.
Did Bradley Cooper shoot Taylor Down?
Now that Taylor Swift's unattached, all eyes are on who she'll date next...and apparently, it won't beBradley Cooper.
Speaking to Extra, the Oscar-nominated star of Silver Linings Playbook dismissed a recent report that he turned down a chance to get together with Taylor. The reportclaimed that Cooper's Silver Linings Playbook star, Jennifer Lawrence, approached him on Taylor's behalf to see if he'd be interested, but he said no. Why? Because, claimed the report, Cooper feels Taylor's too young for him, and he didn't want to get involved with a "serial dater."But Cooper called B.S. on the whole report, telling Extra, "Crazy, never met her, that's not even true at all… that's completely made up." Cooper was obviously familiar with the story, because he added, "Somebody said that she talked to Jen? Yeah, not true." Here's video of Bradley putting the kabash on the rumor.
Luke Bryan Is Ready For Spring Break....Part 5
Luke Bryan has collected the tracks from his four Spring Break EPs for his new album,Spring Break…Here to Party, due out March 5. The set also includes two new songs, and Luke loves being able to deliver these fun and sometimes racier songs to his fans.
"We kind of write 'em with college kids and Spring Break and that whole party theme in mind," Luke says. "I think it's fun to put out songs that, you know, just to get some new music out there for fans and more opportunities for them to have a different type of music from me."
Luke is also set to play his annual concerts at Spinnaker's Beach Club in Panama City, Florida, March 12 and 13. Last year, more than 40,000 fans flocked to the beachfront shows each day. Luke will also play a show on his Dirt Road Diaries tour at the Amphitheatre at the Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama, on March 14.
