The former lead star of hit show Nashville sits down with James Gilmore before her sold out show at London's Royal Festival Hall
When you look at the rise of country music culture globally, you can easily give credit to Clare Bowen and her team on the hit show ‘Nashville’ for enabling country artists to sell out venues in most cities around the world.
On her trip to London, UK, the former lead star of the hit show experienced this for herself, as she sold out the 3,000-capacity Royal Festival Hall with her solo headline show… a feat previously only within reach of acts who would be stadium selling performers in the US.
She’s not the only one feeling the benefit of her own successes - Thomas Rhett is on course to sell out the 5,000-capacity Eventim Apollo when he arrives in London this November, and Kacey Musgraves is due to sell out the 12,500-capacity Wembley Arena too.
And that’s not to mention global pop sensation Taylor Swift,…
Putin's oppressive grip tightens in Russia.
Boris Nemtsov, 55, the outspoken leader of the Russian opposition, was killed earlier this year on the 27th of February in the evening, by four shots to the back by a gunman in a passing car while walking near the Kremlin. This was just two days before he was due to appear at an opposition rally in Moscow. This caused outrage within Nemtsov supporters, with many of the more cynical ones, declaring their suspicion of the involvement of the Russian President, Vladimir Putin. This is because the killing had taken place in an area of high security near the Kremlin, which would not have been possible without official involvement. Alexei Navalny, another prominent opposition figure, accused Russia’s “political leadership” for the death of Nemtsov. In addition to that, Nemtsov’s daughter Zhanna, told CNN, “Russia has crossed the line after this murder and people will be frightened to express ideas contrary…
The offspring of Celebrities compete for their chosen charities.
On its third series of ‘Big Star’s Little Star’, Stephen Mulhern once again hosts the family entertainment show. The content of the programme is light-hearted and the best combination of what children will enjoy and parents alike. It is a downward spiral from ‘Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’ but still has enough enjoyment for all the family. Sometimes you get to even find out secrets like when Olympian Denise Lewis came on the show with her son; he was asked “What would mummy like to keep a secret?” and he replied “she doesn’t like daddy”. Awkward and very scandalous for the mainstream viewers out there. Presenter Joe Swash brings son Harry, Olympian Sharon Davies brings son Finley and Duncan Bannatyne brings granddaughter Ava, competing to win money for their chosen charity.
Even if a pair lose they still get to give their charity £1000, although I don’t think Bannatyne needs…
