Swift, Paisley, Lambert, Aldean play iHeartRadio fest

Monday, July 9, 2012 – Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert and Jason Aldean will play the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas in late September.

The artists also will join a line-up featuring Aerosmith, Rihanna, Usher, Bon Jovi, Lil Wayne, Green Day, Swedish House Mafia, No Doubt, Pitbull, Deadmau5, Enrique Iglesias, Linkin Park, Pink, Mary J. Blige, Calvin Harris and Shakira.

"There' s nothing more amazing than the sound of a screaming crowd," said Swift in a video on the festival's web site. "Unfortunately last year I couldn't be a part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival because I was on tour. It was one of those things where I saw everyone Tweeting about, I saw everybody talking about streaming it live on the internet , and I just saw how exciting and amazing it was. I just thought next year, I'm saving the date. I'm going to be there. The idea that you could bring so many formats and genres of music together and have everybody appreciating it, it highlights the differences between musical acts and makes that a cool thing...Every night is a different feeling."

Tickets go on sale at 1p.m. eastern on Saturday, July 14.

The opener,"Tattoos and Tequila," breaks it down into tattoos to remember, and tequila to forget. Within its booze for every ...
CD review - Rearview Town If you liked Jason Aldean's three previous number one albums, you'll like "Rearview Town." He sticks to the winning formula that has brought him past success. The 15 tracks are mainly juiced up, muscular numbers with scorching guitar. Ironically, amid the torrid tempos and high volume that dominate the collection, the ballads are the standouts, especially with the duet with the Miranda Lambert on "Drowns The Whiskey." Instead of whiskey drowning a memory, the inverse ...
CD review - Old Boots, New Dirt Arguing whether or not Jason Aldean's kinda (country) party is, in fact, anything remotely related to true country music is pointless. Aldean is so entrenched in the mainstream country marketplace now, we just need to accept him as he is, the same way we reluctantly accept Taylor Swift as "country." It's mighty tempting to subtitle a review of Aldean's new "Old Boots, New Dirt" release as 'Pickup Trucks & Pickup Lines,' as Aldean spends a little ...
