Country music veteran Martina McBride, 11 albums deep into her career, says she's starting over. She's representing this through her latest album, Eleven . "I'm definitely surrounding myself with new energy and new ideas, and thinking outside the box musically and professionally," says McBride. One element of her reboot over was recording Eleven on a different label, Republic Nashville, after her long, successful run with RCA Records. "I was there for 18 years, and this was the first opportunity I had to pursue another record label," McBride says.

Once a superstar, always a superstar. In the hearts of true fans, anyway. Kenny Rogers gave a shamelessly cavalier performance at the Valley Forge Music Fair Tuesday night. He played for an hour - no encore. He showed scenes from his costume cowboy telemovies while singing "The Gambler. " He sang a "very sexy" song called "Morning Desire. " (You could tell it was sexy because of the colored light coming from the disco ball that spun over Rogers' head.) He sang Bill Withers' "Lean On Me" and Robert Johnson's "Sweet Home Chicago.

Country music is usually about the basics: hearth and home, kin and flag. Turns out it can also be about the weeping daughter of a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania. (What word rhymes with Santorum?) Last week, country singer Martina McBride released the single "For These Times" from her album Wake Up Laughing, with a verse inspired by Sarah Maria Santorum, Rick's 9-year-old daughter. On election night 2006, the Republican Santorum, you may remember, was defeated by Democrat Bob Casey Jr. Sarah Maria, then 8, clutched a doll and cried inconsolably.

Sassy, singing/songwriting East Texan Kacey Musgraves might seem like an overnight sensation from the splash that 2013's Same Trailer Different Park and its heated singles "Blowin' Smoke" and "Follow Your Arrow" made. In reality, Musgraves, now 27, has been at the country game since childhood, penned songs for Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride, and had just enough cheek to pull off a party at the Trocadero on Saturday and sell the place out. Saucy in a short, fringed dress and verbal demeanor (even her sweetest lyrics don't shy from smartly allegorical looks at weed and sex)

In the end, as we knew it would, last week's American Idol came down to Hot Pants, Newsboy Cap and Sideburns, also known as Haley Scarnato, Phil Stacey and Chris Richardson. It was the Latin extravaganza starring La Lopez herself, and all eight remaining contestants distinguished themselves by being utterly indistinguishable, more adept at their sartorial style than song styling. Scarnato, 24, of San Antonio, Texas, her heroes "Celine Dion, my mom" in that order, was booted off the stage.

The headline from American Idol last week was, of course, the big buh-buhya for Sanjaya. Oh, Mr. Malakar, we hardly knew ye. Well, we knew ye couldn't hardly sing. And we knew ye kept the curling irons of the A.I. hairdressers set on "high. " But nobody knew exactly what it was that kept you in the running for so long. Or why last week - country music week - your pixie magic finally fizzled. All anyone can say for certain is that the 17-year-old Malakar's anemic rendition of Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About" proved to be his last straw.

Country music used to be a tradition-bound genre that kept its elder statesmen close at hand, even as the twangy old coots eased into their dotage. But a youth movement has been afoot for over a generation, as fresh faces with pop appeal push aside wrinkly legends lucky to be honored in name but rarely heard on the radio. George Strait, 61, is the exception that proves the rule. On Friday night, the almost-ageless wonder made the sold-out Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia a stop on his "The Cowboy Rides Away" tour, a victory lap which is purported to be his last.

Christina Davidson and Frank Tucci, both recently widowed after the unexpected deaths of their spouses, always wanted to have a big wedding for their second try at love.

They exchanged vows onstage live at the 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas in front of millions. Country music stars Martina McBride and Pat Monahan serenaded the two.

NO ONE can grouse that the 53rd annual Grammy Awards was "out of touch" with the marketplace. Most winners scoring big at last night's Los Angeles to-do were among last year's biggest disc and download sellers - including the creamy country harmonizers Lady Antebellum (scoring five Grammys - including song and record of the year), hip-hop comeback star Eminem (three Grammys, including best Rap Album), dance pop phenomenon Lady Gaga (with two) and the ever reliable Jay-Z (two). But there were a couple of "leftfield" shockers.
