Following the final performance on October 1st, Bush has penned a long letter on her official site to thank fans and share what the Before the Dawn concert series meant to her (via Pitchfork). Kate Bush Makes Spectacular Return to the Stage “It was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life.

For Grammy-winning Christian rocker Mac Powell, country music wasn’t just a creative itch that needed scratching. Third Day Photos “Two years ago, I made my first [country] record and a lot of people thought, ‘He’s got it out of his system now,'” Powell tells Rolling Stone Country , “but all that did was make me want to do it even more.” And thus was born Southpaw , the singer’s follow up to his 2012 self-titled country debut. The 12-song set, released October 14th, includes co-writes with country hitmakers Darius Rucker, Kristian Bush and Travis Tritt. It’s arguably a natural transition for the bearded, long-haired Alabama native with a penchant for musical storytelling. Yet certainly not a permanent one
Put on your headphones before checking out this trailer for ” The Gambler ,” because it’s got a red band for a reason. This remake of the 1974 crime classic stars Mark Wahlberg as a college professor with a bad gambling habit. (Hey, you’ve gotta pay off those school loans somehow – those degrees don’t come cheap.) In this trailer, Jim is getting a stern dressing down from a loan shark played by John Goodman .

It’s been more than three decades since John Schneider and Tom Wopat were just’a good ol’ boys, never meaning no harm. But the Dukes of Hazzard co-stars are still very much a team. On October 28th, the pair will release Home for Christmas , an 18-track holiday album that mixes seasonal standards like “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Silver Bells” with humorous, left-field tracks like “Johnny, It’s Cold Outside,” a bromantic reinterpretation of Frank Loesser’s “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Wopat, who wrote all the lyrics to “Johnny, It’s Cold Outside,” shares the microphone with Schneider on the bulk of the tracks, although each actor sings a pair of solo tunes, too. The Dukes of Hazzard Schneider and Wopat have long histories as vocalists.
