    Little Big Town welcomes pop to its country world

    Preakness infield party still raucous, but tamer than years past
    There were still drunken 20-somethings. Still crowds making a ruckus. And people throwing up after one too many beers. But this year — unlike at recent Preakness Stakes when infield crowds gained a reputation for debauchery and rowdy stunts like...
  • Dramatic win caps off well-attended Preakness

    Dramatic win caps off well-attended Preakness
    The largest crowd in Preakness Stakes history watched the thrilling victory of a horse that's now on a Triple Crown hunt, jammed to pop band Maroon 5 and basked under a Saturday sky whose only clouds were the wispy letters of an advertisement sprayed from...

    The best part of a Song of the Summer candidate is just how low the stakes can be. French Montana, a B or C-list New York rapper whose best work can be found on free mixtapes, is an MC with a mush-mouth delivery and an unremarkable persona. Yet here he...

    Trae the Truth's voice provides the low-end on 'Gettin' Paid'
    Posting this for any rap fans unfamiliar with Trae, a hometown hero from Houston, Texas. His voice, a gravelly but melodic bass (at least I think; haven't taken a music theory class since, well, ever), often commands whatever track he jumps on. He raps...
