We don't know what's prettier - this song or its accompanying clip!
Check out the just-released music video for the Kings of Leon track, Back Down South (above)!
We love the simple, nostalgic atmosphere this video creates!
Kind of makes you want to go back to your hometown and party with your high school friends!
What do U think?? Do U like the latest from Kings of Leon??
Looks like Kings of Leon fans WON'T have to wait until November to see the band perform on tour!
Last we heard about it, Kings of Leons' touring company announced that the tour would be postponed until November 2011 so that Nathan Followill would have time to recover from surgery.
Guess he's made a speedy recovery, because the band has confirmed their summer 2011 tour with Band of Horses, AND they've already announced dates via press release.
Check out the full list of tour dates AFTER THE JUMP!

Thank goodness. This was getting really old.
After a lot of haterade was spewed on both sides, the Kings of Leon have publicly accepted Glee creator Ryan Murphy's apology over his part in their bitter feud.
To recap, KOL wouldn't let Glee use their music, RM called them "self-centered a-—s," Drummer Nathan Followill followed that up with some homophobic remarks on Twitter, he apologized for them, RM accepted it and apologized back and now we're here.
In an interview the guys had with Rolling Stone, frontman Caleb Followill admitted they hold "no grudges" against the show or Ryan and have moved on from it. He added:
"I’ll just be glad when I can check my Google alerts and don’t have to read anything about us and Glee. That’ll be a wonderful feeling."
We're ready to move on too! Here's hoping we never have to talk about this ever again!

Wow. There's a lot about them we don't really know. We imagine you don't know that much either.
Now, we do.
Today, the Kings of Leon released the first trailer for their new documentary, Talihina Sky: The Story Of Kings Of Leon. The film is being prepared to be show at the Tribeca Film Festival and is said to be a chronicle the band's entire career from start to now.
Check out the trailer (above).
For a while, it had been well known that there was bad blood between Glee creator Ryan Murphy and Kings of Leon.
Then back in February, Gwyneth Paltrow mediated a truce between Ryan and the band via text messages.
Now, it looks like Murphy has taken further measures to bury the hatchet with the band by publicly apologizing to them:
“I didn’t speak with as much clarity as I would have liked. Who am I to say ‘F**k you?’ That’s not what I meant. I completely understand when artists don’t want a show or another artist to interpret their songs. In fact, I respect it. It’s their personal work and I’d feel the same way. We get turned down all the time and I don’t fight it or even go back after a rejection.”
“I’ve never felt that if you don’t give Glee your music, there’s something diabolical about you. To the contrary: I support artists and what they choose to do…I think Kings of Leon are cool as shit. The Foo Fighters are brilliant. We’d love to do one if their songs, if they were ever interested. But if it’s not their thing, then OK. I personally wish them luck and will still listen to their music."
We certainly give Ryan credit for making such a strong effort to make peace with Kings of Leon.
Hopefully everything will be cool between them from here on out…and who knows? MAYBE one day Kings of Leon will let Glee perform some of their music! Maybe…
Do U think Ryan Murphy made the right move by apologizing publicly to Kings of Leon? Do U think they'll EVER allow him to use their songs On Glee?

Another HIGHlight of the evening!

We're still reeling! It was amazing!!!
Back in September, we heard the news that Kings Of Leon's lead singer Caleb Followill had gotten engaged to gorgeous Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge.
Now, the two have begun planning their wedding, which sources say will take place in California in early May.
Thus far, expected attendees for the event include the other members of Kings of Leon, Maroon 5's Adam Levine and GF Anne Vyalitsyna, and other Victoria's Secret models including Chanel Iman, and Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley with BF Jason Statham.
Sounds very exciting! We'll look forward to hearing more as the wedding approaches!
