Taylor Swift was wrapping up a concert trip in Japan when it was announced that she won four Teen Choice Awards. She appeared in a pre-taped segment to accept her surfboard trophies. Here's a list of the country winners:
Rascal Flatts knew they had something special when they heard the demo for the song, "Why Wait." Jay DeMarcus says, "I kept going back to that one because it's such a unique melody and such a unique feel for us." The song is the first single from their upcoming album, Nothing Like This, and their first for Big Machine Records.
Jewel and cowboy hubby Ty Murray are spending the summer traveling across America on motorcycles. This would pose a real packing challenge for most women, but she's got it covered. She says, "I've lived out of a suitcase my entire life, and for a girl, I really don't pack a lot ... All I brought are a couple pairs of pants, a couple little sundresses and motorcycle gear, and that's it!"
