This year's Stagecoach festival, which closed out on Sunday (5/1), will find a home in the history books on two points. Organizers are expected to announce record attendance levels, and the festival was likely the largest impromptu celebration site in the nation on Sunday night following the Obama announcement of the death of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. Country crooner Josh Turner has carved out a generous slice of concert work this summer as he continues to support last year's "Everything is Fine." Carrie Underwood, who's getting ready to launch a co-headlining trek with Keith Urban, has started to announce dates for her own North American outing. The new Eagles album, "Long Road Out of Eden," sold more than 711,000 copies during its first week of release, enough to easily top The Billboard 200 album chart. Country singer Brad Paisley melded his nimble guitar playing with a visually striking electronic backdrop and a deft sense of humor during his show Friday (5/5) at the Phoenix area's Glendale Arena.

Though 2006 has only just begun, it's not to soon to speculate that Josh Turner's "Your Man" might turn out to be the best mainstream country album of the year. From playing the Grand Ole Opry to Christian television's "Hour of Power," Josh Turner has exposed as many folks as possible to his debut album, "Long Black Train," without overexposing himself.
