In the song and music video just released, dozens of artists come together for a mashup of John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads," Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" and Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You." "When I first heard about it, it was hard to wrap my mind around it," Miranda admitted. "How many people are on three songs? How long is it? It's not very long of time to fit a lot of things »
The video for the all-star "Forever Country" mash-up opens on a green field, panning to sun-dappled woods and a glimpse of Nashville's Honky Tonk strip before Brad Paisley appears in a roadside café, singing the words of a classic: "Almost heaven, West Virginia…" For Paisley, one of the 30 acts lending talent to "Forever Country," the project was personal. "'Take Me Home Country Roads' is my state anthem," Paisley tells People of the John Denver tune that was blended with Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" and Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" for the new song »

One Direction left the pop-music world the same way they entered it: clutching each other on an X Factor U.K. finale, hoping for an encouraging word from career dad Simon Cowell. The difference: In that moment, broadcast mid-December, 1D were in control of what would happen next. After five years and five albums, they chose to pull the plug on the world’s biggest boy band, at least for now. Last year was pretty dramatic for the lads. They released Made in the A.M., their first album without Zayn Malik, and one many Directioners assume is their last. In their final public performances, de facto heartthrob Harry Styles stepped back, while the outgoing bro bunch — Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson — found their own ways of standing out.
