Well, we had my summary of 2012 in country music, and after
querying it on Twitter, apparently people would like my take on what’s in store
for the bright new year. I’m going to predict things at random. Mostly they’re
educated guesses, but we all need a few totally off-the-wall predictions,
- Hillary Scott’s baby will be a boy. I have no
idea what is telling me this, but something is.
- Another country star will get pregnant. I think
Carrie and Miranda (who have often been asked about kids) are more set for
2014/15, but a country star somewhere is bound to get pregnant.
- As for Taylor Swift relationship drama, I think
after a couple of months the relationship with Harry will be over (although
judging by her most recent tweet, “…’til you put me down.” It may already
be), and she will have another two more relationships before the year is out,
with a couple of other people she’s romantically linked with in the media but
it doesn’t come to anything. Taylor has learned that relationships = publicity
so I think her record label will be onto her to keep in the public eye in this
- Kellie Pickler’s 2012 album ‘100 Proof’ wasn’t
very well promoted by her label, who she then split from last year, but now she
has signed with Black River Entertainment I think she will release a brand new
single, totally out of left field and blow everyone away.
- Kristian Bush will release an EP of acoustic
sessions and a few songs he’s been working on, whilst Jennifer is off on
maternity leave with her baby. It just makes sense and I really want it to
