Just push play?


Gazette staff
Considering Aerosmith hadn’t recorded a studio album in 11 years before Music from Another Dimension! was unleashed last week, introducing the band to the iTunes generation made smart marketing sense. Therefore, Oklahoma’s own reigning country queen, Carrie Underwood, was called upon to duet with Steven Tyler on the power ballad “Can’t Stop Loving You.”

Friends in high places


Gazette staff
Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is known for some of cinema’s all-time finest tough-guy films — Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull — so when he ventures outside his crime-minded comfort zone, it raises eyebrows. (And have you seen his eyebrows?) News of him potentially directing a television special starring Yukon’s favorite son Garth Brooks would have CFN doing just that, but we got our brows waxed and plucked so thin, they barely move. Anyhow, according to The Las Vegas Sun, Brooks just wrapped up a three-year stint performing in Sin City, and real-estate mogul Steve Wynn says Marty “said he’d love to” shoot it for all of America’s eyeballs.

Country it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
It’s Pure Country as George Strait performs at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno. Opening is none other than fellow superstar Martina McBride, who, in OKG7’s humble opinion based on the accompanying photographic evidence, is far more fetching. Tickets are $72.50-$92.50. Call 800-745-3000 or visit
