Before Loretta Lynn cut her first record, “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl,” in 1960, she split her time cleaning houses and taking care of her four young kids. But soon after her clear Kentucky voice hit country radio with songs of strong — and often wronged — women, the 28-year-old singer songwriter found herself on show circuit away from family most weeks.
“It was rough,” Lynn, now 84, tells People of her early days on the road. “I was working clubs, and I was doing like three and four shows a night. And I hadn’t been in the business but two years before I got pregnant, »
Fans finally have their first extended preview for the final season of Girls.
In a 40-second teaser that HBO released Tuesday, Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) and Co. are seen trying to finally get it right.
The teaser opens with Hannah sitting on a stoop as Marnie (Allison Williams) and ex-husband/current bandmate Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) drive up to give her a lift. Co-showrunner Jenni Konner told The Hollywood Reporter after the fifth season finale that while Desi and Marnie are no longer together romantically, he'll continue to be part of her life professionally, "like The White Stripes."

Image Source: Getty / C Flanigan If you haven't heard of Maren Morris yet, now is the perfect time to get schooled. The 26-year-old country singer has landed on the charts thanks to her upbeat anthem, "My Church," and her debut album Hero was released to rave reviews and earned her five Cma Award nominations this year. She has a soulful, pop-infused sound, and her cool-girl swagger will make you wish she was your Bff - you know, the one with a sugary Southern drawl and superhot classic car who's never met a whiskey shot she didn't like. Here are eight things you should know about Maren before her impending country takeover. Yes, she's from the South. Maren hails from Dallas, TX, and currently resides in Nashville. She's taken!

If Jim Jarmusch were a type of music, which one would he be? Over the course of three decades as a filmmaker, he’s worked with a wide variety of musicians: John Lurie, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Joe Strummer, Tom Waits, Neil Young, Jack White and Meg White, Gza and RZA, and on and on. His own band, SQÜRL, plays droning avant-garde noise rock in a vaguely Boris vein. One musical genre Jarmusch decidedly does not embody, however, is punk—his sensibility is far too laid-back to express that sort of raw power. So while it’s not surprising that he’s chosen to make a documentary about Iggy Pop And The Stooges (Iggy having previously played small roles in Dead Man and Coffee And Cigarettes), viewers making the same demand as Gimme Danger’s title will likely be disappointed. Considering how cheerfully its subject courted controversy, this is a chummy »

As of Friday, October 21, Battlefield 1 is officially out in the wild for all platforms, introducing players to a visceral account of The Great War. To celebrate the occasion, EA and developer Dice have lifted the lid on the shooter’s spectacular launch trailer, and you can get a taste of that explosive action up above.
Much like the first reveal trailer, you’ll hear the blaring chords of “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes in the background – albeit a remixed version – and though many gameplay clips often integrate music that doesn’t necessarily mesh with the on-screen visuals, this combination works remarkably well.

The ripples extended far past the shores of Lake Wobegon when Garrison Keillor recorded his final episode of A Prairie Home Companion on July 1. In 2015, announcing his decision to step down, Keillor, 74, marked mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile as his successor.
Though Thile, 35, was a frequent guest on the show, he initially struck some as an odd choice. Thile rose to prominence with indie-bluegrass group Nickel Creek and has made a name for himself both with his own alt-leaning bluegrass group The Punch Brothers and as a highly-sought after collaborator for other instrumentalists like double bassist Edgar Meyer and cellist Yo-Yo Ma. »

The White Stripes broke up years ago, but faux siblings Jack White and Meg White are banding together to blast Donald Trump for his campaign’s unauthorized use of the band’s hit “Seven Nation Army” in a campaign video.

The White Stripes and Donald Trump definitely aren’t in harmony with each other. The duo lashed out on Tuesday over what they called the “illegal” use of the group’s 2003 hit “Seven Nation Army” in a pro-Trump video. A statement posted to the Twitter account of frontman Jack White’s Third Man Records said that the group was “disgusted” by the use of the song.

Getting a surprise from a friend is always nice, but it’s probably especially delightful when your friend is famously quirky French film director Michel Gondry. Gondry—whose most recent film, Microbe & Gasoline, debuted back in July—apparently was feeling especially whimsical in the shower the other day, and so he set up his camera and decided to make a music video for the recently unearthed White Stripes song “City Lights”:
According to a press release from White Stripes frontman Jack White, the video was made completely independently by Gondry without asking permission from the band first. They clearly weren’t mad about it, though—who would be?—and they’re now sharing this cute gesture of friendship and fandom with the public. Gondry, of course, has worked with The White Stripes before, most notably directing their famous Lego-based video for “Fell In Love With A Girl.”

Aside from creating one of the best sci-fi films of the 21st century so far, Michel Gondry is perhaps best known for his wildly inventive music videos, and one band that seems to bring the best out of him is The White Stripes. While they don’t technically have a new album on the way, Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 was recently released, and one of the songs was the newly unearthed “City Lights,” written back during the Get Behind Me Satan Days.
As any great director friend should do, Gondry went ahead on his own and shot a music video for it, which features some playful, steamy action in the shower (although, perhaps not the kind you are thinking). Check out the video and album below, along with a message from Third Man Records and Gondry’s other White Stripes videos.

Michel Gondry’s latest film “Microbe and Gasoline,” about two friends who embark on a road trip across France in a vehicle they built themselves, premiered at last year’s New York Film Festival before being released in limited release this past July. It received mostly positive reviews from critics who praised Gondry’s restraint in contrast to his usual fantastical whimsy. Now, Gondry has returned with another directorial effort, only this time it’s a music video for the now-defunct modern blues group The White Stripes.

Jack White, one half of the White Stripes, recently shared a previously unreleased White Stripes track entitled “City Lights,” which will appear on his career-spanning new compilation album “Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016.” Gondry apparently whipped up a music video for the song “as a gift,” according to a press release, »

Shaun Eddleston reviews week 7 of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic…
This week’s episode of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic brought the final matches in round 2 of the tournament. After last week’s exciting matchups (read my review here), week 7 of the Cwc showed off six men who are all considered to be seriously viable options to advance to the final and take home the rather stylish trophy that was revealed over the weekend.
As Swann made his way to the ring, it was clear that the crowd was 100% behind him, with absolutely everyone was singing and dancing along to his entrance music, which sounds like the soundtrack to all the best »

It’s fun to root for imperfect people that run amok in an imperfect world. Flaws are what makes characters on-screen appear human, and yet, the greater and more abundant the flaws, the more villainous they are usually perceived. You can’t have a strong hero without an equally matched villain. Thankfully, the DC Comics’ universe is populated by the most colorful and deliciously evil around (sorry Marvel).
Amanda Waller is one of those great villains in a film chock full with hitmen, gangsters, and other villains known as “meta-humans.” As a government operative, she wants to protect the public, but does so at a cost. She manipulates evil to defeat even greater threats through a group nicknamed the “Suicide Squad.” She’s the puppet master pulling the strings of these imprisoned villains while offering reduced sentences for their services. It may sound like a sweet deal, but it is »

Where no turntable has gone before… Jack White has just made history, and not for his music, but by launching the Icaraus Craft — the first “space-proof” turntable — into space. As Uproxx reports, the high-tech, ultra-durable turntable was attached to a high-altitude balloon that was launched into the stratosphere just outside Marsing, Idaho.
