McCurdy sings for Generation Love

Tuesday, April 12, 2011 – Jennette McCurdy, star of Nickelodeon's iCarly, released a single, Generation Love, to country radio Monday.

McCurdy has engaged in a multi-week cross country mall tour, Generation Love For St. Jude, raising money for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. McCurdy has made it her personal mission to raise $100,000 for St. Jude.

"When I visited St. Jude a few months back, I was so impressed to find out how above and beyond they go to provide care for the children treated at the facility," said McCurdy. "The hospital pays for the patient's family's travel and lodging expenses, and most importantly, St Jude doesn't turn any child away, regardless of the situation at hand."

The song was produced by Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and is available for purchase at digital retailers. The single will appear on McCurdy's debut country album in stores this fall.

Except, they headed to East Nashville more precisely where the rep is that the cooler country cats are hanging.... »»»
Concert Review: Hard Working Americans more than live up to moniker – Hard Working Americans is a generic enough sounding term, conveying that you're part of the lunch bucket crowd.

That's because they or in most cases, their other... »»»
