Last night, I went to a benefit concert called, “All For The Hall,” which was put together by Vince Gill and Keith Urban to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame. Reba was there, and Brett Eldredge, Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack, Ronnie Milsap, Deana Carter, David Nail, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Brantley Gilbert (who, I’m sorry, gives me intense douche chills). It was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to, and all the performances were killer (except for Brantley’s, mostly because I was distracted by his gratuitous wallet chains), but the best moment happened, as it usually does, when Carrie Underwood walked out on stage. “I will not be doing this song any justice, but I’m doing it anyway,” she
said lied, before belting out a shockingly beautiful cover of Dolly Parton’s classic, “I Will Always Love You,” backed by Vince and Keith. I posted on Instagram last night that I was stuck permanently in the swooooon position after witnessing this performance, and it’s true. I woke up still swooning. Caution: watching this video might cause you to swoon uncontrollably too. But man, so worth it. [Popdust]
Sorry Carrie Underwood, but if the Von Trapp family had their way, you would not have been singing from the mountain tops.

The family says they wanted Anne Hathaway to portray Maria, especially after her Oscar-winning turn in “Les Miserables”. So what happened? Read more on Celebuzz…

I woke up this morning, still riding the high from all the yodeling and merriment, curtains chopped up and all, when I signed onto Twitter and discovered a slew of haters all up in Carrie’s grill. Keep reading »
TODAY IS MY CHRISTMAS.
Two of my all-time favorite things, Carrie Underwood and “The Sound of Music,” are colliding tonight for a live performance on NBC, where my homegirl will be playing the ever-flawless Maria von Trapp. So, naturally my entire day today will consist of hardcore fangirling.
Let this be a warning: If anyone tries to reach me from approximately 8 to 11:30 p.m, you will be unsuccessful, because I will be happily live tweeting through every yodel, every song and every one of Captain von Trapp’s whistles. Join me! Keep reading »
I think everyone who writes about body image has a blind spot or a subject that makes them feel a bit hypocritical. After all, most of us haven’t gotten the whole “Love your body exactly as it is 100 percent of the time no matter what” thing down yet, and although we might have a great understanding of all the concepts, and can easily explain them to others, we haven’t quite internalized them for ourselves.
