LADY ANTEBELLUM BARTENDER BLUES
Lady Antebellum return to the show with the video for Bartender - first single from their sixth album 747.
It was written by group members Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley, and Hillary Scott with Rodney Clawson, and co-produced with Nathan Chapman.
The video was directed by Shane Drake and co-stars model Kate Upton and Veep/Arrested Development actor, Tony Hale.
Lady Antebellum debuted the song during the American Idol season 13 finale on May 21, 2014.
Two days later they performed the song on Good Morning America, Late Show with David Letterman and 2014 CMT Music Awards on June 4, 2014.
The band headlines CMC Rocks Queensland at Ipswich from March 13-15 and also play Rod Laver Arena on March 17 with former Sugarland singer Kristian Bush and Maddie & Tae.
They previously opened for expat Australasian superstar Keith Urban on April 9, 2011.
JACKSON TAYLOR & THE SINNERS
Texan roots country singer Jackson Taylor & the Sinners show how two make the most of a Texan BBQ in their video for No Place To Go from their 14 th album Crazy Again .
They showcase a river, pick-up truck, caterpillar and even a Billy Joe Shaver T-shirt.
Jackson is one of 11 children born in a labour camp in Moody, Texas .
His lost highway took him from the Lone Star state to Las Vegas back to Texas where he now hangs his hat.
Jackson 's passion for roots country was passed down by his dad who took him to see and hear country greats like Waylon, Willie, and Billy Joe Shaver perform.
His adolescence was spent bouncing from one migrant labour town to another, finally settling in a small farming town in Washington State .
After graduating high school, he moved back to Texas but left to try to make it in Nashville .
There, Jackson found work as a songwriter but after a couple of tough frustrating years he discovered Nashville was not home.
From New York City to Los Angeles , Jackson found his rightful home, ironically right back where his life began - in Texas .
Billy Joe Shaver says “ Jackson 's songs are so real and honest, you know straight off he's been there and done that. He writes and sings like he lives, great songs that I believe will live forever."

RODNEY CROWELL PAINTS A TARPAPER SKY
Emmylou's third ex-husband Paul Kennerley - brother-in-law of Aussie TV host Kerri-Anne, produced her revered concept album The Ballad of Sally Rose in 1985.
Harris's soul brother Vince Gill, who first toured here with Albert Lee, also played with Crowell in the Cherry Bombs .
Rodney, married to Rosanne Cash from 1979-1992, toured here two decades after Cash, now 59, who later wed fellow singer-songwriter John Leventhal.
The latter day Tennessean wed singer Claudia Church in 1988 and poached Hughes from Patty Loveless's band about a decade ago.
BOBBIE CRYNER HONOURS PATSY CLINE
That was long before Trisha wed Oklahoma superstar Garth Brooks and sang on Australian country king Lee Kernaghan's eighth album The New Bush.
Cryner later sued her former producer and publisher Carl Jackson for total ownership of Real Live Woman and other songs.
Bobbie, real name Phyllis Cryner Maffett, recorded during the early and mid-1990s, first for Epic and then MCA.
Her highest-charting song You'd Think He'd Know Me Better peaked at #56 in 1996.
Other chart songs were Daddy Laid the Blues on Me, He Feels Guilty and You Could Steal Me.
She also wrote evocative tune Nobody Love, Nobody Gets Hurt - title track of Suzy Bogguss's eighth album in 1998 and Lee Ann Womack's Stronger Than I Am.
Bobbie appeared in 1995 film Something to Talk About starring Julia Roberts, Dennis Quaid, and Robert Duvall and released another album True Grit.

LEE ANN WOMACK 20 YEARS AND TWO HUSBANDS AGO
Womack, daughter of a small town Texan DJ, won a Grammy with Willie Nelson for their 2002 duet, Mendocino County Line .
In October 2010 during her solo recording hiatus Womack sang Liars Lie on the soundtrack of Tim McGraw-Gwyneth Paltrow movie Country Strong.
Lee Ann played a sheriff - Chief Deputy Claire Wades in a small East Texas town in another movie Noble Things.
The six time CMA Award winner's new album features songs by Chris Knight, Mindy Smith, Buddy Miller, Mando Saenz, Hayes Carll, Neil Young, Bruce Robison and late Roger Miller.
Womack chose roots covers including Carll's tune Chances Are that we featured on Nu Country TV.
It's a far cry from her arrival at Belmont University in Nashville where she met and wed singer-songwriter Sellers in 1990.
They divorced in 1996 - five years after they had a daughter Aubrie Lee.
Womack gave birth to her second daughter, Annalise Liddell, in January 1999 after marrying Liddell.
