When we watched Jake Owen propose to now fiancee Lacey Buchanan spontaneously at a show in Vero Beach, Fla., the one little missing detail was the ring. Since Owen made a bit of a spur-of-the-moment decision to seal the deal with Buchanan in front of his hometown audience on April 7, he hadn’t quite had the time to go out and pick out the perfect rock. Now that he and his bride to be have had a few days to let the excitement settle and make some decisions, Owen is opening up and dishing on the details of the ring.

Taylor Swift Is ‘Very Nice’ But Just a Friend, Harry Styles Says

It’s a swing and a miss again for Taylor Swift fans and media outlets who want to see the starlet latched on to a star. Harry Styles, member of the 5-piece British-Irish boy band One Direction, did in fact meet Miss Swift stateside, but though he even describes her as “nice,” it looks like diehard fans are going to have to throw the line back into the water and wait for another bite. No wedding bells (or even dating bells) here, guys.

Carrie Underwood took the April/May 2012 cover of Vegas magazine, and this week she’s staring back at us from the front of Billboard’s April 21 issue.

Taylor Swift Still Hard at Work on New Album

At the end of last year, we reported that Taylor Swift was getting to work writing for her 2012 record, a follow-up to her massively successful ‘Speak Now.’ The October 2010 release grew into the international phenomenon that was her Speak Now World Tour, sparking a series of sold out shows and all-star collaborations. And while we haven’t heard much in the past few months as far as album details, like a title or a release date, Swift did take to Twitter Wednesday night (April 11) to post a photo of her in a pair of headphones playing guitar in the studio.

Ashton Kutcher to Justin Moore: ‘Know When to Fold ‘Em Brother’

Yep, it’s still going on. If you’ve missed out on the ongoing mini-drama that is Ashton Kutcher and Justin Moore (with a touch of Miranda Lambert thrown in for kicks), allow us to summarize for you. At the ACM Awards on April 1, Kutcher got onstage to present Lambert with an award wearing an over-the-top red Western jacket and cowboy hat. He sang an unimpressive few bars of George Strait‘s ‘I Cross My Heart,’ which was a delight to the crowd, but not so much to a few country stars.

Justin Moore Stands by His Ashton Kutcher Rant, Calls Appearance ‘Distasteful’

This week, country stars Justin Moore and Miranda Lambert tweeted their disapproval for Ashton Kutcher’s dress and performance at last weekend’s ACM Awards. And while Lambert primarily mentioned that she thought Kutcher may have been poking fun rather than coming at the country genre in sincerity, Moore was quite a bit more candid with his thoughts, ending with, “I don’t care for people making a mockery of the way country artists’ dress.”
