Time Magazine has named Carrie Underwood to the “TIME 100,” its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Carrie is in there with everyone from Vladimir Putin to the Pope. Each of the 100 has an guest write up explaining why the person is included on the list. ”Not only has she earned her place [in Country music], she’s raised the bar: a prolific songwriter, a trend-setter, and an OPRY member. But it’s her decency as a person that is so impressive,” shared BRAD PAISLEY, who is a guest writer for CARRIE’s profile in the issue.

This report from Newser- A few weeks after some newly-returned vets sang patriotic Toby Keith songs at a Colorado Springs bar’s karaoke night in 2012, the bar owner found herself slapped with a $21,000 fine for not having permission to play the songs in her bar. LeShawn Carey registered the Carey-On Saloon with two of the three performing rights organizations that enforce copyright laws—ASCAP and SESAC—but not the third, BMI. She got in trouble for seven of the karaoke songs, five of them Keith’s; the country star is repped by BMI.Tags: karaoke, toby keith
