Country Music News in a Flash: Little Paisley’s First Step, Craig Morgan Leaves Broken Bow Records, and Underwood Makes Idol Proud

Brad Paisley may have won the first Grammy award of his career on Sunday night, honoring his instrumental “Throttleneck.” But Brad had more important things to celebrate: He’d just witnessed his son, William Huckleberry Paisley, taking his very first steps! “Fatherhood is amazing,” he told Access Carrie UnderwoodHollywood on the red carpet. “He’s basically walking as of [Saturday]. It’s the Otis Campbell of ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ walk: Every day it’s different.” Little Paisley will celebrate his first birthday February 22nd and certainly will have many more milestones to come!

Craig Morgan Has chosen to leave Broken Bow Records, although the reason is not yet clear. Craig first signed with Broken Bow in 2000 and has since produced hits like “Redneck Yacht Club”, “International Harvester” and “Little Bit Of Life”.

Carrie Underwood‘s Grammy performance seemed to cause a spike in record sales pushing her to sales of “Some Hearts” to6.26 million after she sang her hit “Before He Cheats” on the nationally televised awards ceremony. This makes her the top selling American Idol to date! Carrie is currently touring with Keith Urban on the “Love Pain and the Whole Crazy Carnival Ride” tour.

That’s it for today’s news, but keep in touch… there’s always more where this came from!
