1. This Canadian girl went on to be one of the most commercially successful artists of all time.

2. She’s won 5 Grammy Awards

5. At the age of 22 her parents were killed in a car accident and she had to support her siblings by performing at a nearby resort.

Can you guess who this is?

It’s Shania Twain!

 

It doesn’t matter how big of a celebrity you might become, every star still freaks out when they meet another artist they truly admire.

Dierks Bentley recently shared with  Rolling Stone Magazine some of his biggest ‘fan girl’ moments when meeting his Country Music idols.

One story we couldn’t help but die of laughter from was the time he met Allison Krauss and Dolly Parton while working in the studio.

“Alison Krauss is probably my Number One. She came into the studio to sing on my first record. Dolly Parton was there, too. My dog Jake ran up to Dolly Parton and he put his nose up her skirt. We were like, ‘Oh my God, don’t do that.’ I didn’t know Dolly and she said, ‘Watch out there little doggie, don’t start something you can’t finish.'”
Now that’s the classic quick-witted Dolly we all have grown to love. But if there’s anyone who could put a silly old dog in it’s place, that would be Dolly Parton.

He’s the “King of Country Music,’ but how well do you know George Strait? We scoured the web and put together 10 things you never knew about this Country Music icon.

Diapers. Not fun.

A recently pregnant Carrie Underwood is prepping for motherhood and among the tasks she needs to be ready for is diaper changing. Watch her take the diaper challenge on America’s Morning Show.

Don’t worry Carrie, we’re not sure where the “front” is either. We’re rooting for you!

Carrie also recently released her newest single “Something In The Water” off her upcoming greatest hits album

 

Some ladies like a clean cut man, other’s like a little fuzz to keep them warm. In this interview Tim McGraw talks about growing gray, why he won’t do “Just For Men,” and the real reason why Faith Hill likes his grizzly beard.
Beard or no beard, Tim is undeniably one of the hottest male Country Music artists of all time.

What do you ladies think? Should he keep the fuzz?

 

So is who this little girl sitting atop a John Deere tractor in the cutest baby blue and white dress?

It’s none other than “Walk The Line” star Reese Witherspoon.

Reese – who grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana – wrote: ‘Because what Southern girl doesn’t love a John Deere tractor.. #TBT’

You can tell from the photo that her smile hasn’t changed a bit, and with a grin like that it’s no wonder this little beauty went on to conquer the film industry and win the coveted Oscar.

Get your tissues ready. We’ve compiled our top favorite moments when Country artists surprise their fans.

1. Taylor Swift (Surprise #1) – The Grammy winner surprised leukemia patient Jordan Nickerson in his room at Boston’s Children’s Hospital with a very special song.

2. Taylor Swift (Surprise #2) – Lowering herself to her knees to be at eye-level with the sweet fan, Swift was totally taken with fan Tripp Stratton as she gave him a goodie-bag full of all the things a fan would love.

3. Miranda Lambert – She wiped away tears as she sang “Over You” to a 7-year-old fan with cancer. Lambert held hands with the young girl in the front row, and couldn’t hold back tears as the crowd finished the song for her.

4. When WGNA found out how much the music of Luke Bryan affects four-year-old Riley, they got Luke on the phone to talk to him.

5. Brett Eldrege – Imagine belting our your favorite Brett Eldrege song in your car while putting on mascara, and then he pops out of nowhere to sing it with you. Well that’s exactly what happened in this video.

Sometimes I sneak up on people! Ha!
