wyclef-jean-nashville-star-tv-show.jpg

HA!

Well, not for realsiez, but iconic musician Wyclef Jean IS guest starring on ABC's steamy new drama Nashville as the head of a record label!

The political music man tweeted a pic from the set, along with the caption:

"On the With thé hotest cast on T V #Nashville @SamPalladio @clarembee @JonathanJackson Rya kihlstedt"

Ooo we wonder if Wyclef's character will offer a producing deal to old-news country music superstar Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton)!

Or perhaps he will succumb to country-pop starlet Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) seductive talents?!

Sh*t's gonna get cray cray, ya'll!

Not bad for an indie band, right??

Mumford & Sons just released Babel, their sophomore album — and it has grabbed the biggest debut of any album this year in the U.S.

How big? Try 600,000 units sold in its first week, becoming the rock quartet's first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart!

Oh and it's the first No. 1 for its record label, Glassnote Records.

But wait, there's more:

It also had the biggest sales week for a rock album since

American Idol Kris Allen Has 'Split' With Record Label

Another one bites the dust.

Following American Idol winners like David Cook and Lee DeWyze, Kris Allen has "split" with RCA Records.

We're not sure whose idea it was to part ways, but the singer's last album didn't do nearly as well as his first. His sophomore effort sold 15,622 in the first week of release, while his self-titled debut sold over 80,000 copies the first week.

Either way, it doesn't sound like he's too bummed and said in a statement:

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersOne DirectionVMAS

One Direction Lawsuit Settled Name

Directioners can now breathe easy!

It seems as though the Brit boyband One Direction won’t be changing their name anytime soon!

We previously reported on how the chart-topping Brit group had been caught up in a $1 million lawsuit from another group with the same name!

After 1D’s record label decided to countersue back in June, it looks as though a resolution has finally been reached!

One Direction will continue to use their name, while the US-based group will be changing its name to Uncharted Shores.

Phew!

Now that that’s over with, the What Makes You Beautiful crooners can get back to prepping for their very first VMA performance on Thursday!

SO to garner more listeners, stations are independently playing songs off the singer's sophomore album that have NOT been approved as "official" singles by Adele's record label, Columbia Records.

Fast and peppy track I'll Be Waiting is now 21's fifth single enjoying massive airplay, but it is NOT a song Columbia ever planned to promote.

Lisa Sonkin, Columbia VP of triple A and public radio promotion recently stated:
