Rick Diamond/Getty Images for CRSTrent Harmon’s latest single, “There’s A Girl,” is officially his first top 20 song...but he doesn't want to stop here.

“Looking back, I didn’t even really know what top 20 meant." he says.

“Top 20 was actually a goal for me whenever we started radio tour on June the 15th, 2016," he adds. "That day, I remember joking about, ‘Well, you know what, if we can get a song in the top 20 I’ll be happy.’  And now, you get that and it’s like, 'I’m not exactly happy.  I’m grateful, but now I want a little more!"

The American Idol champ is currently working on his debut album, which he hopes to release sometime later this year.

BMLGThe guys of Rascal Flatts say they're feeling a little nostalgic these days. But as they look back on a stellar career, it's also apparent the three of them are pretty stoked about the future, too -- especially when it comes to their new album.

Back to Us, the group's 10th studio album, is due May 19, and frontman Gary LeVox says the band has "really been fired up" about the project.

"I think it’s the quality of the music that we’ve been able to get our hands on and it’s really, really fun and they’re incredible songs," he explains. "We’re thankful to be able to put some music and a voice to it. And it’s been really, really exciting."

In keeping with Gary's comments about the incredible songs, Joe Don Rooney is quick to point to the first single from the album, "Yours If You Want It," whose video was just released last week.

"That song was written, like, two years ago and we just got it pitched to us this past summer and it’s just awesome," says Joe Don. "Uptempo and fun, great lyric on that song...So we took it in and recorded it and out of seven songs recorded so far, that’s the one that just went to the top."

Back To Us can be pre-ordered now, with a chance to get an autographed copy at www.RascalFlatts.com

Craig Wayne Boyd, season seven winner of NBC’s The Voice, has signed with Copperline Music Group and Reviver Entertainment Group to release new music later this summer. Reviver is also home to chart-topping duo Locash.

ABC/Image Group LAOnline music series and Nashville-based Skyville Live celebrated the musical power of women Monday night in a live webcast featuring collaborations with Cam, rising star Lindsay Ell, rocker Melissa Etheridge, guitar player extraordinaire Orianthi and Def Jam recording artist Troi Irons.

Melissa kicked the show off with a fiery performance of her debut single “Bring Me Some Water” before having Cam join her for a show-stopping duet of her hit “Come to My Window.” Melissa was quick to point out how special the song is, noting that the only other artist who ever sang it with her was Dolly Parton, on an episode of CMT’s Crossroads.
