He boosted morning drive across ALL demos and went from 10th to 4th in Men 13-49 in one book! We could not be happier."

The guys spent most of last year on the road with Jason Aldean, and prior to that they toured with Luke Bryan. Brian Kelley says, “We’re excited. It’s something we’ve been working toward for a long time and asking for it. We’re very thankful for the opportunities from all the artists that we got to open up for. We’ve learned so much and feel ready to take on a full year of headlining.”

The Anything Goes Tour will run through June with a European tour and some festival dates thrown into the mix. You can see a complete list of Florida Georgia Line’s tour dates here.

LeAnn Rimes catches flak after making rape joke

Oops. Looks like LeAnn Rimes might want to think very clearly before speaking in the future. 

Or she could always drag her publicist around with her to help her choose the right words to speak before saying them out loud. 

The singer is facing some pretty harsh criticism after making a recent joke about rape. 

See, LeAnn and her hubby sat down with Joan Rivers for the comedian's web series In Bed With Joan. During the discussion, talk turned to LeAnn and how she lost her virginity. That would be about the time most people might change the subject, but LeAnn answered. 

And that's where she got into trouble. 

"I was in Monte Carlo and I was 15?" LeAnn answered. "I know, it's kind of a bulls--- story. I was 16. There you go."

"Was it nice? Was it bad? Was he nice?" Rivers pressed.

"Well, he was my boyfriend for like three and a half years," Rimes explained. "He was fine. I think I raped him. I think that's how it happened."

Rape is definitely not a good subject to joke about, so you can imagine the backlash that LeAnn's been getting. So far, however, LeAnn hasn't commented on the subject.

NINEBALL RADIO INKS A DEAL FOR SYNDICATION OF THE BILLY MADISON SHOW

Nineball Radio Networks LLC, an independent creator and clearance house for terrestrial radio programming and services, has signed on to handle national syndication for The Billy Madison Show, now available nationwide Monday through Friday mornings.

The Billy Madison Show is currently heard on KISS-FM (KISS ROCKS), in San Antonio, TX and WHPT-FM (THE BONE), in Tampa, FL. The Billy Madison Show commands a number one market share in all male demos in both markets. According to Nineball Radio Networks' President/ CEO Stefan Jones, "a show with such chemistry is rare, especially with the support of such a great company like Cox Media Group. Billy is a true professional who preps relentlessly and continually creates a show that is like nothing else being offered in Rock syndication. He left Tulsa number one, he took KISS-FM from 16th to number one and he is number one at WHPT-FM in Tampa. I think the numbers speak for themselves. We are excited to be a part of it."

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.
