Glance at Chris Janson’s impressive resume so far: one platinum single and a hot new song rocketing up the charts. A much-anticipated second album that he co-wrote from start to finish. And, to top it off, crazy harmonica skills and a riveting stage style that makes you wonder if he’s the love child of Loretta Lynn and Mick Jagger.
So why in the world does Janson describe himself as just an ordinary, everyday kind of guy?
“I pride myself in trying to be that,” says the 31-year-old artist, “because I’ve really never known any different … I’ve »

The Killers: Wonderful Wonderful

Happy birthday, Faith Hill!
On Thursday, the country star turned 50—and to wish her a happy birthday, husband Tim McGraw posted the sweetest note on social media to celebrate the milestone.
“Happy birthday to the most beautiful girl in the world,” McGraw wrote on Instagram along with a photo of Hill.
“You are the most remarkable person that has ever been in my life….Our daughters could not have a better role model,” he added. “I am truly in love with you more every day.”

Happy birthday, Faith Hill! The gorgeous country singer turned the big 5-0 today, which is a little hard to believe considering she looks almost the exact same as she did when she started in the industry in 1993 at just 26-years-old. Perhaps the secret to her youthful appearance is simply her lack of care when it comes to aging. "I'm Ok with having lines," Hill told New Beauty earlier this year. "I want people to know I've smiled a lot." Or, it could be the fact that she's just really, really happy...and for good reason! Hill has been happily married to Tim McGraw for 21 years, and they have three daughters together, Audrey, Maggie and »

Tim McGraw is warming our darn hearts!
Country legend Faith Hill turned 50 on Thursday, and to celebrate the milestone, McGraw took to Instagram with one of the sweetest birthday messages of all time.
"Happy birthday to the most beautiful girl in the world," McGraw wrote. "You are the most remarkable person that has ever been in my life....Our daughters could not have a better role model =."
"I am truly in love with you more everyday," he continued. Can't wait to see what 'the rest of our life' has in store for us."
If someone could just recite those words to us verbatim on our birthdays, that would be incredible, 'cause it's unlikely better ones will ever be written.
Of course, Hill's big day comes after McGraw celebrated his own 5-0 this past May -- and she had her own words of love »
If you thought Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" music video was insane, just wait until you see this behind-the-scenes clip. While the video itself is full of hidden references, one of the most mind-boggling parts has to be when the singer revives all of her old selves. Even though we thought we had found every last one of them, it turns out we were sadly mistaken. In this new video, Swift gives us an inside look at how she brought that majestic "Taylor Mountain" to life while also giving us a glimpse at a few old-school personas we might have missed, including two "Tim McGraw" Taylors. Catch all the action above. »
