Kellie Pickler, Wynonna trading boots for “Dancing” shoes?
This comes courtesy of TMZ.com, which also reports that Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and Sean Lowe from The Bachelor are also among the contestants.
True or false? We won’t know for sure until the lineup is officially announced Tuesday (Feb. 26) on Good Morning America.
But it makes sense, right? ABC now has that Nashville show on, and ABC hosts Dancing with the Stars, so why not hit Dancing with a little more twang than usual?
Brad Paisley pumps up the pumps in Haiti
You might remember back in December when Brad Paisley and his actress wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley (now playing the “other woman” on ABC’s Nashville) announced they’re trying to build 100 clean water stations in Haiti.
Looks like that effort is well under way.
Brad posted several pics on his Twitter feed over the weekend (Feb. 24), including a super-cute one of him and a bunch of kids in front of a new water purification system.
“Thanks to [charity] #LiveBeyond, these kids can drink clean water,” Brad posted.
“We are just getting started,” Brad wrote.
Carrie hints that a concert DVD may be coming up
And now, you might be able to watch Opry member Carrie Underwood in concert again and again and again….
Carrie tells reporters that she has been keeping video footage of concerts and other public appearances, so a concert DVD is a real possibility.
“I think that would be really great,” Carrie said. “There’s no concrete plans to do anything with it, but it’s always nice to have that stuff in your back pocket, ‘cause stuff always comes up where people need more footage or need concert footage or whatever.”
OK, but what about a concert DVD???
“It’s definitely, I guess, always on the table for us to do something like that,” Carrie said.
Watch Carrie’s performance of Randy Travis’ “I Told You So” live on the Opry stage – let that hold you over until DVD release day:
