The Daily Mail claims Taylor Swift was recently performing in Detroit when she honored the late Aretha Franklin with a moment of silence. She told fans; ”’Last week we lost an irreplaceable force. Aretha Franklin did so much for music, she did so much for women’s rights, she did so much for civil rights. She was one of those people where no matter what you said, no matter what glowing positive thing you said about her, it would be an understatement. Words could never, ever describe how many things she did in her life that made our world a better place. And this is her home. I would like it if we could have a moment of silence so that every single one of us could reflect on our love and respect for her and everything that she did in her life. So if we could please cut the lights, we’ll have a moment of silence for Aretha. We love you, Aretha.”
Jason Aldean tells Petersen that he plans his tour schedule around hunting season. “I actually plan my touring and concerts a lot of times around hunting season. Fall is a great time for it, too. We’ve been traveling all year and playing shows, so it’s nice to decompress a little bit, look back at the year and reflect a little bit. The lifestyle we have is so fast-paced, crazy and hectic, so when I have a chance to get in a treestand it helps keep me sane. The peace and quiet do a lot of good. And every time a big buck walks out I get a feeling of adrenaline, every time.”
Old Dominion’s Matthew Ramsey tells SongwriterUniverse that he has an art degree. “I was always drawn to art and painting and drawing, all through school. I was in bands, and then I would find excuses to spend the rest of my day in the art room in high school. When it came time to go to college, I decided that art might be something I could do, but of course, I was playing in bands and writing songs the whole time. And then when it came graduation time, I decided that I needed to put all my focus into one of those things in order to be good at one of them. So in the end, I chose music.”
