Keith Urban has second successful run on HSN

Keith Urban launched his second line of guitars on the lifestyle retailer HSN over the weekend, and it was another massive success, selling over 22,000 of his limited edition “Light the Fuse” and “Phoenix” URBAN guitar packages in one day. The first line of guitars Keith sold on HSN sold over 20,000 in their first day of sales, which means his second line is already a bigger success.

The “Light The Fuse” guitar collection features two versions of the “Light The Fuse” guitar — all wood electric or acoustic-electric — and comes in five flame maple burst color patterns – Brazilian, Ebony, Brazilian Blonde, Cherry Red and Teal Burst. The guitar comes packaged with a powerful 15 watt amplifier, an extra set of comfort coated strings, a carrying case, signature guitar picks and a double-lesson DVD featuring Keith personally walking you through one-on-one lessons.

The first line of Keith Urban guitars offered by HSN sold out and it looks like the second line is on the way to doing the same thing.

Sara Evans is ready to share new music with her fans.

Sara announced on Monday that her seventh studio album, "Slow Me Down," will be released on March 4 and will feature great collaborations, including duets with Vince Gill and Gavin DeGraw.

"Making Slow Me Down has been a truly amazing experience," said Evans. "I had the chance to co-write with some of my favorite writers, work with Mark (Bright) and some truly incredible musicians - and now hearing what we created gives me such an incredible sense of pride. Having Isaac (Slade), Gavin (DeGraw), and Vince (Gill) sing with me, was an amazing experience and they took those songs to another level. I honestly have never been more excited to have everyone hear one of my albums. I cannot wait to share it with everyone."

The Band Perry song to be featured in sad Glee episode

Fans of the Fox show "Glee" have been waiting several months for the special tribute to Cory Monteith, who passed away in July after a public battle with addiction. This is the week that the special will air and now we know that one country band will have a song featured in the episode.

The Band Perry's signature song If I Die Young will be performed by Naya Rivera, who plays Santana on the series. 

The band mentioned the honor on Twitter: 

'If I Die Young' is a celebration of life. Honored to be part of the Oct 10 episode of @gleeonfox. Please watch & share your thoughts.

The song is indeed fitting and I'm sure this won't be the last time we hear the song used in such a sad circumstance. 

The special episode will air Thursday, October 10.
