TAYLOR SWIFT GETS GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATION FOR A SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR
Looks like Taylor Swift is heading to the Golden Globes again, but it won't be for her acting -- at least, not yet.
Taylor has, for the second year in a row, got a nomination for best original song.
It's for the song "Sweeter Than Fiction," which she wrote with Jack Antonoff, one of the guys in pop band fun.
The song was used in a documentary called One Chance, about a British opera singer who found fame on a TV singing contest.
Last year, Taylor got her first Golden Globe nomination, in the same category, for her song "Safe & Sound," which was used in The Hunger Games.
The Golden Globes take place Jan. 12 in L.A.
NEW BABY HAS LADY ANTEBELLUM SPLITTING INTO GIRLS' AND GUYS' BUSES ON THE ROAD
Lady Antebellum is splitting up, into two different tour buses, anyway.
Hillary Scott now has a six-month-old daughter, Eisele (EYEZ-lee), so she's getting her own bus and leaving Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood to fend for themselves.
The two-bus tour launches next month.
And Charles jokes to People magazine that the refrigerators on the two buses will look a lot different.
Charles says the girls bus fridge will have formula and baby food. The guys' bus fridge? "Doritos, whiskey and bourbon."
GRETCHEN WILSON GETS NAKED IN LAS VEGAS -- SORT OF
Yes, Gretchen Wilson was naked in Las Vegas, and thousands and thousands of people saw it.
OK, she on the cover of Las Vegas magazine. And it's not really clear if she was naked. The Redneck Woman's shoulders are bare and a guitar is covering the rest of her.
You can also start catching a fully clothed Gretchen on GAC starting at noon (ET) today (Dec. 13) on the network's Christmas edition of "Great American Playlist."
Gretchen will be chatting about her new Christmas album, Christmas in My Heart, and all the Yuletide traditions at her place. Like, maybe, muddin' in front of the Nativity scene?
SCOTTY MCCREERY IS ALL SHOOK UP ABOUT HIS FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG
'Tis the season that most country artists stay at home. But not Scotty McCreery, who has been out most of the month on a Christmas tour. He has one more date for this year, a radio station bash Wednesday (Dec. 18) in Tulsa, Okla.
So what's Scotty's favorite Christmas song?
He tells us: "My favorite Christmas song comes from my favorite Christmas album, and that's Elvis' Christmas album. I was an Elvis fanatic growing up. It was 'Blue Christmas.' When I was making my album, I knew I was going to put at least one Elvis song on there, so it came down to just deciding that nobody was going to sing 'Blue Christmas' like Elvis Presley, so we did 'Santa Claus is Back in Town.' But 'Blue Christmas' is definitely my favorite."
Scotty's Christmas album, Christmas with Scotty McCreery, is out now.
BITS & PIECES: KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, RAY PRICE AND MORE
Kris Kristofferson will receive a lifetime achievement award from the Grammys folks next month in L.A. He's in high cotton: The Beatles will be among the others getting the same award that week.
Ray Price left a Texas hospital yesterday (Dec. 11) to go die at home. His wife said in a statement that Ray is ending all aggressive treatments for pancreatic cancer. His wife adds that Ray is not in severe pain.
Kelly Clarkson's Cautionary Christmas Tale TV special -- with Blake Shelton, Reba and Trisha Yearwood -- did OK in the ratings Wednesday night (Dec. 11). It got about five million viewers, slightly edging out the winter finale episode of ABC's Nashville.
