Scotty McCreery’s ‘Five More Minutes’ Inspires Hallmark Christmas Movie

Scotty McCreery’s 2018 Billboard Country Airplay chart-topper “Five More Minutes” will soon get the Hallmark television movie treatment. The song has inspired a movie by the same title, which will air Nov. 20 at 10 p.m. ET on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.

In the movie, which stars Nikki DeLoach and David Haydn-Jones, a woman’s holiday wish is answered in unexpected ways when her late grandfather’s journal is discovered, revealing a previously untold romance.

Though McCreery will not appear in the movie, he does serve as an executive producer on the project.

McCreery wrote “Five More Minutes” alongside Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell, and the song was one of three consecutive No. 1 Country Airplay hits from McCreery’s 2018 album Seasons Change.

“It’s [about] my grandaddy. That’s my story, but I think people relate to every part of the song,” McCreery told Billboard of “Five More Minutes” in 2018.

In that same interview, McCreery also recalled a key moment when he realized the song stood a good chance of becoming a hit. “We sang [‘Five More’] live at the Grand Ole Opry, and kinda debuted it for the fans in [June] 2016, and I’ve never had a standing ovation at the Opry like that, period. Somebody said the other day, ‘The Opry crowd, they wanna sit. They don’t wanna stand up.’ Opry put it on their YouTube channel — we didn’t know they were gonna do it, and I woke up the next morning and I’m the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter and Facebook. I was like, ‘Crap, what did I do last night?’ Trying to jog my memory. Then I saw it was that video, and I was like, ‘Dang!’ It was getting shared like hotcakes. We had a good indication that it was gonna work [as a single].”

McCreery recently earned his fourth consecutive Country Airplay No. 1 hit with “You Time,” a single from his latest album Same Truck, which was released last month.

McCreery isn’t the only country artist involved with a holiday film this year: Reba McEntire teamed with Lifetime for the holiday movie Christmas in Tune, which she stars in alongside John Schneider.

Taylor Swift Declares ‘It’s Red Season,’ Previews ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ in New Video

We’re less than a month away from the release of Red (Taylor’s Version), and Taylor Swift is here to announce: “It’s Red Season.”

In Swift’s first Instagram Reel video, it’s all Red everything. Swift wears a red ballgown with ruby earrings, a red manicure and a custom Red ring, and shows off her rows and rows of red shoes and clothing. “It’s Red Season,” reads an all-caps message across the video.

Swift ends the clip on a red box with a red bow. What’s in the box? Swifties will likely have to wait until Nov. 12 to find out.

“21 days til November 12 and I *promise* it’s worth the wait,” Swift captioned the video.

In June, the 31-year-old singer/songwriter announced Red (Taylor’s Version) will be the second re-recorded album from her series of six, following Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in April. The re-recorded 30-track version of Red will feature nine bonus tracks, including collaborations with Phoebe Bridgers, Ed Sheeran and Chris Stapleton. Swift additionally shared that the album will be coming in vinyl in her first-ever TikTok post.

Red (Taylor’s Version) will be released on Nov. 12 via Republic Records.

First Stream Latin: New Music From Sebastian Yatra, Paloma Mami, Adriel Favela & More

First Stream Latin is a compilation of the best new Latin songs, albums and videos recommended by the Billboard Latin editors. Check out this week’s picks below.

Sebastian Yatra, “Tacones Rojos” (UMG Recordings)

Sebastian Yatra’s new single “Tacones Rojos” is an upbeat pop-dance love song that starts off with electric guitar riffs followed by his plush and charming voice. “The song was inspired by morning rays of light that enter through your window and can totally take you to a new and happy inspiring place,” Yatra said in a statement on writing the lyrics alongside Manuel Lorente (the song was co-produced by Manuel Larra, Juanjo Monserrat, and Pablo Ross). Above all else, this feel-good song is an ode the happiness that comes from finding that special someone who will light up your world: “My piece of sunshine/the girl of my eyes,” he chants in the chorus. — INGRID FAJARDO

Paloma Mami, “Cosas de la Vida” (Sony Music Latin)

Latin Grammy best new artist nominee Paloma Mami bares it all in her new single “Cosas De La Vida.” Muting the more rhythmic side of her sonority, the new track is a slowed-down pop tune powered by a sparse drum beat that finds the Chilean-American singer-songwriter wondering if she’ll find her way back to her soulmate. Written by Mami and Gilberto Figueroa “Roa,” “Cosas De La Vida” is the first single off her upcoming album, which will follow her 2021 debut LP Sueños de Dali. — GRISELDA FLORES

Adriel Favela, “Lágrimas de Miel” (UMG Recordings)

Ever since returning to music, Adriel Favela has presented a refreshingly mature sound, evidenced on “Lágrimas de Miel,” which features a melancholic sierreña melody and is the third single off of his upcoming album Cosas del Diablo. The Mexican singer-songwriter is vulnerable and heartbroken on the song — which Favela co-produced with Trooko and Danny Felix and co-wrote with Brandon Reyes — while the simple yet conceptual music video brings the whirlwind emotions to life. — JESSICA ROIZ 

Gloria Trevi, “Ensayando Cómo Pedirte Perdón” (UMG Recordings)

Gloria Trevi has a knack for creating anthems and her latest song is no exception. Written by Trevi and Mexican singer-songwriter Leonel García, “Ensayando Cómo Pedirte Perdón” is a striking ballad on forgiveness, which, as ever, Trevi delivers with her resounding and powerful vocals. “I hope that this song can help people reconcile and put together the broken pieces that were a result of this pandemic,” Trevi said about the song. “From now on, I hope that it becomes a song that helps someone ask for forgiveness even when it’s hard to put into words.” — G.F.

Llane & Boza, “Puñales” (Warner Music Mexico)

Llane and Boza, two former Billboard Latin Artists on the Rise, have joined forces for their new collaboration “Puñales.” The Colombian artist and Panamanian newcomer blend their signature sounds, bringing to life a mid-tempo urban-pop track fused with lots of Caribbean flavors. “Puñales,” which loosely translates to fist, tells the story of a person who refuses to believe that their relationship has ended and prefers to live in a lie. — J.R. 

La Santa Cecilia, Quiero Verte Feliz (Rebeleon Ent./Virgin Music U.S. Latin)

From cumbia to norteña to son jarocho, folk and beyond, La Santa Cecilia’s eight-song set is music for the soul. As lead singer La Marisoul puts it in “Estrellita,” “I sing for the soul of the people and to cure my own heart.” A must-listen from beginning to end, featuring cant-miss collabs with Lila Downs and Luis Enrique, the L.A.-based group takes their audience on a roller coaster of emotions singing about falling in and out of love, acceptance and celebrating life. The tracks are set to rich, wide-ranging arrangements that will instantly make any listener want to get up, dance and shake off any bad energy. — G.F.

Kris Floyd, La Última Vez Que Me Viste (NEON16/Interscope Records)

After penning songs for artists such as J Balvin and Selena Gomez, Kris Floyd released his own debut EP, La Última Vez Que Me Viste. On the nine-track set, the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter puts all his cards on the table, flaunting the ease at which he can tap into R&B ballads (“¿Cuando Vienes?”), sultry perreos (“Ser Ella”), hard-hitting reggaeton (“Ser Libre”) and his specialty of trap, best heard on “Xkittlez,” the only collab on the album featuring Arcangel. “I want people to know a little more about how I my mind works,” Floyd said in a statement. “The opportunity to continue contributing art and to continue expressing myself through music is very valuable to me.” –– J.R.

Ally Brooke “Mi Musica” (AMSI Entertainment)

For her first solo, all-Spanish single, Ally Brooke taps into the reggaeton realm with “Mi Musica,” marking a new direction for the former Fifth Harmony member. “This song is purely from my heart, and it is as ‘me’ as it gets,” the Mexican-American artist said in a statement. “I am proud to say I helped to write this song that means so much to me. The message of ‘Mi Musica’ is that I am nothing without my family, dear friends and fans. I have everything because I have them, and to them, I dedicate this song.” Co-written by Brooke, Yofred, Azzi and King Mora, Brooke’s first Spanish single is a preview of her upcoming first-ever Spanish-language album, which will also be her debut album as a solo artist.

Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Scream’-Inspired Halloween Nails Are Scary Good

Megan Thee Stallion continues to be in the Halloween spirit. On Friday (Oct. 22), the “Thot Shit” rapper took to Instagram to share her newest set of spooky nails.

“Spooky $et,” the rapper captioned the post of her nails, which features several versions of Ghostface from Scream — one face is bejeweled, while the others are sparkly, starry-eyed and bloody. Along with the images of her decked-out nails, Megan posed in a Ghostface mask and oversize Venom T-shirt, using a knife as a prop to complete the scary look.

Finishing off the rapper’s photo set was a screen grab from the 2000 Scream spoof Scary Movie, where “Ghostface” is on the phone telling the person on the other end of the receiver that he’s “just chillin’, killin’.”

The Scream-themed nails are the latest addition to Megan’s Halloween beauty streak. Earlier in the month, the Billboard Hot 100 hitmaker rocked Venom, X-Ray, vampire’s teeth and eyeball nails.

Keeping up with the Halloween theme, the rapper also dressed up as a she-devil to tell her Hotties on Thursday that she’ll be releasing a compilation of freestyles and unreleased songs on Oct. 29 called Something for Thee Hotties: From Thee Archives. “My gift to my hotties 10/29…freestyles y’all been asking for plus a few unreleased songs from my archives to hold y’all over for the rest of the year,” she wrote on Instagram, along with a cheeky devil emoji.

The Nike BE-DO-WIN Goes Stealthy In “Off-Noir”

The result of a recent visit to the archive, the Nike BE-DO-WIN is set to launch in a stealthy “Black/Off-Noir/Multi-Color” style soon.

Inspired by an original outdoors-ready shoe from the 1980s, the silhouette indulges in a synthetic leather build reminiscent of footwear historically associated with indigenous peoples. The sole unit underfoot deviates from the upper in that it boasts a highly-textured makeup, all while delivering comfortable cushioning for all-day wear. Furthermore, rubber nubs (which resemble those on past Nike React-cushioned options) deliver reliable traction whether off-road or in the city. Lastly, the model’s name is embroidered on the heel, a detail that introduces hits of purple and dark red to the mix.

This BE-DO-WIN hits Nike.com November 4th. While you wait to secure your pair, enjoy official images of the shoes ahead.

Rod Stewart & Son Facing Trial After Plea Deal on Battery Charge Falls Through

A plea deal between British rock icon Rod Stewart and Florida prosecutors fell through Friday (Oct. 22), meaning he and his adult son are again scheduled to stand trial on charges they battered a security guard during a New Year’s Eve bash nearly two years ago.

Neither Rod Stewart nor his son, Sean, were present when Judge August Bonavita announced that a hearing in which a deal was expected to be finalized had been canceled. The pair are now scheduled to stand trial on misdemeanor battery charges on Jan. 25.

This is at least the second time a deal has fallen through in the case, which has also been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. The Stewarts face a maximum penalty of a year in jail, although such a lengthy term would be unlikely.

Prosecutors declined comment. Defense attorney Guy Fronstin did not immediately respond to calls and emails.

Polo G Is Eligible for Best New Artist at 2022 Grammys, Morgan Wallen Is Not

Polo G is eligible for a 2022 Grammy nomination for best new artist, vying for one of the eight nomination slots against such front-runners as Olivia Rodrigo, The Kid LAROI, Gabby Barrett, Saweetie, BLACKPINK and Måneskin.

The best new artist eligibility for Polo G, whose Hall of Fame entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in June, was not considered a sure thing. His two previous albums, Die a Legend and The Goat, had also made the top 10 on the Billboard 200. But the Grammy screening committee, which makes the final determination in such matters, decided that his continued growth in this eligibility year (Sept. 1, 2020 to Sept. 30, 2021) met the category’s key benchmark for eligibility: “This category recognizes an artist whose eligibility-year release(s) achieved a breakthrough into the public consciousness and notably impacted the musical landscape.”

The committee further decided that his previous two albums did not achieve such prominence as to render him ineligible. The rules state “The screening committee will be charged with determining whether the artist had attained a breakthrough or prominence prior to the eligibility year. Such a determination would result in disqualification.”

Polo G wasn’t the only rapper who’s been building for a few years to be ruled eligible. Youngboy Never Broke Again and Moneybagg Yo, both of whom released their first albums in 2018, are also on the list of 463 artists who are eligible for best new artist at the 64th annual Grammy Awards. First-round voting opened Friday (Oct. 22) and ends Nov. 5.

Some pop artists who have been building for a while are also eligible. Ava Max, whose “Sweet but Psycho” made the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in June 2019, is eligible, as is Surfaces, whose “Sunday Best” was first released in 2019, though it only became a hit in 2020.

Morgan Wallen — whose sophomore album, Dangerous: The Double Album, topped the Billboard 200 for 10 weeks but who became mired in controversy over his use of the N-word — is not on the eligibility list. While the controversy surely didn’t help his case here, the committee may have simply decided his prominence prior to this eligibility year was too great: His “Whiskey Glasses” topped the 2019 Country Airplay Songs year-end tally, and “Chasin’ You” claimed the top spot in 2020.

Other notable artists who are missing from the list include Bo Burnham (who was vying to become the first comedian to receive a best new artist nod since Robin Williams 42 years ago), 24kGoldn, Flo Milli, Don Toliver, Clairo, Conan Gray and Snoh Aalegra.

Several buzzy, new-ish artists were not eligible to compete for best new artist this year because they have received previous Grammy nominations as performers. These include GIVĒON, Jack Harlow, Mickey Guyton and Kali Uchis.

The eligibility list includes numerous artists who have been nominated in equivalent categories at other awards shows, including Jimmie Allen and HARDY, who like Gabby Barrett, are new artist of the year contenders at the upcoming CMA Awards; Coi Leray, Latto and Pooh Shiesty, who were nominated for best new artist at the 2021 BET Awards; Yung Bleu (who won) and Blxst, Leray and Morray, who were all nominated for, best new hip hop artist at the BET Hip Hop Awards; and Arlo Parks (who won) and Celeste, who was nominated for, breakthrough artist at the Brit Awards.

Several K-pop acts are on the eligibility list. In addition to BLACKPINK, they include Tomorrow x Together, Monsta X and Twice.

Other buzzy artists who are on the eligibility list include Tate McRae, Walker Hayes, Glass Animals, Anitta, Ashe, Baby Keem, Madison Beer, Rina Sawayama, Julien Baker, Girl in Red, Breland, 42 Dugg, G Herbo, Japanese Breakfast, Jxdn, LANY, Duncan Laurence, Kiana Ledé, Lil Tecca, Masked Wolf, Niko Moon, NLE Choppa, Queen Naija, Pa Salieu, Elvie Shane, Tai Verdes and Rod Wave.

Finneas, the brother of the 2019 winner Billie Eilish, and Ryan Hurd, the husband of 2016 nominee Maren Morris, are both on this year’s entry list. Finneas has won eight Grammys for his work with Eilish but not as a performer. Per the Grammy rules: “Not eligible: Any artist with a previous Grammy nomination as a performer.”

This year’s 463 eligible best new artist contenders is the most in eight years. There were 670 eligible artists in 2013 — the most in the history of the category. There have been just three other years in which there were 450 or more eligible artists: 1997-99.

It’s striking that the number of best new artist contenders rose this year, because the number of contenders in the three other Big Four categories dropped. There are 1,172 eligible record of the year candidates (down from 1,463 last year); 1,163 song of the year candidates (down from 1,443); and 837 album of the year contenders (down from 1,225).

The nominations for the 64th annual Grammy Awards will be announced Nov. 23. Final-round voting runs from Dec. 6 to Jan. 5. The awards will be presented at Staples Center on Jan. 31, 2022.

Multi-Colored Knits Cover The Nike Space Hippie 04

With over a year in the books, the Space Hippie footwear series has grown expansively in colorway options, with few as prolific as the 04 model. Originally launching exclusively for women, the Space Hippie 04 has since been offered in ample amounts of unisex offerings, making it the most accessible of the original four. Now, it surfaces in a classic “Multi-Color” look as a variety of colored yarns make up the knit upper, with thick orange cables fortifying its structure. The external heel strap is color-matched as is the warped embroidered lettering. This new release harkens back to the original four with the soft blue Crater Foam sole that features the Grind bits blasted into the matter.

The question now remains: will Nike expand on the Space Hippie series and introduce an 05 model and beyond? See the official images ahead and should you wish to cop these sustainability-focused lifestyle shoes, get them now via the shopping links ahead for $130.

First Country: Lady A, Joy Oladokun, The Cadillac Three & More

First Country is a compilation of the best new country songs, videos and albums that dropped this week.

Lady A feat. Darius Rucker, Thomas Rhett and Carly Pearce, “Friends Don’t Let Friends”

As country artists are currently churning out several collaborations, trio Lady A offers another one that gives heartbreak an uptempo soundtrack with the help of Darius Rucker, Thomas Rhett and Carly Pearce. “If you’re gonna make a bad decision/ you shouldn’t make it on your own,” they sing in this rowdy, joyous singalong that culminates in lush harmonies and impromptu banter.

Jenny Tolman, “I Know Some Cowboys”

With her previous release, There Goes The Neighborhood, Tolman’s songs like “High Class White Trash” proved she’s capable of infusing her music with in-your-face humor and witty lyrics that have become increasingly rare in country music. Today, Tolman releases “I Know Some Cowboys,” the lead track from her upcoming album Married in A Honky-Tonk, out on Old Sol Records. The ‘90s country-inspired track is a fiddle and steel-fueled warning to her lover that he better “two-step up,” because she’s met plenty of chivalrous cowboys from Amarillo to Odessa. Tolman penned the track with her fiancé and producer Dave Brainard along with Billy Whyte.

Additionally, Tolman released the ballad “Lonely in the Lone Star,” a song she was asked to perform at the funeral of Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, who was among the 13 U.S. soldiers killed during an August bombing at the Kabul airport.

MacKenzie Porter, “Heaven Heard Me”

Porter has earned three No. 1 hits in her native Canada and she’s currently in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart thanks to her collaboration with Dustin Lynch, “Thinking ‘Bout You.” Now, on her latest solo release the Big Loud Records artist is thanking heaven for finding true love. This glossy confection swirls with gratitude as bright piano and guitar wrap around Porter’s exuberant vocals. Porter wrote the track, produced by Joey Moi, with Dave Cohen and Steven Lee Olsen.

Abby Anderson, “Bad Posture”

While Anderson is known for her 2018 release “Make Him Wait,” a wholesome tale about waiting for the right one to come along, the newly-independent artist is now delving deeper into past pain and coming out stronger. “I’d shrink myself to make you feel taller,” Anderson sings, backed by angsty, sparse piano in this cathartic, bare-bones confessional as she recalls the ways an ex made her feel small and insignificant. But she emerges triumphant by the first chorus as her moody vocal rendering swells into an airy upper register revealing both joy and relief as she sings, “I used to have bad posture/ but since you’ve been gone I stand up straight.”

Anderson co-wrote the track alongside Anna Vaus with production from Marshall Altman. She released independently via Stem.

Joy Oladokun feat. Jason Isbell, “I Can’t Make You Love Me” (Spotify Singles)

Oladokun’s velvety voice is backed by spacious percussion on this cover of Bonnie Raitt’s 1991 classic, which was released as part of the Spotify Singles series. Here, Isbell’s vibrant guitar work answers Oladokun’s more subdued — but every bit as potent — vocal interpretation of the lyrics. On Oct. 23, Oladokun will open for Isbell at the Ryman Auditorium and next year will launch her first headlining tour.

Wade Bowen, “When Love Comes Around”

“Gotta dance when the band’s downtown/ gotta get lost to get found/ gotta love when love comes around,” sings Texas mainstay Bowen on this joyous love song, bolstered by jangly mandolins, guitars, banjos and uplifting percussion. Two decades into his music career, Bowen’s music retains a newcomer’s energetic fervor, melded with his signature blend of sounds from across the wide spectrum of Texas music.

The track, which Bowen wrote with Heather Morgan and Eric Paslay, is from Bowen’s upcoming Paul Moak-produced EP Where Phones Don’t Work out Nov. 19 via Thirty Tigers.

The Cadillac Three, “Devil’s Lettuce” (video)

“Gettin’ higher than heaven on the devil’s lettuce,” sings Jaren Johnston, Neil Mason and Kelby Ray on this celebration of all things 4/20-related. The track, which salutes a “puff puff pass” as a perfect way to unwind after a long day, gets an added punch from the newly-released animated video helmed by Shane Pielocik. The clip also nods to some of the trio’s good buddies: Brent Cobb and Brothers Osborne.

Jon Langston, “When You’re Lonely”

On his latest musical outing, Langston wises up to a partner’s habit of keeping them in an on-again, off-again relationship. “It happens every time, make up your damn mind, you know we can’t be just friends,” sings the 32 Bridge Entertainment/EMI Records Nashville artist. Langston penned the track, which has an extra edge thanks to his slightly gritty vocal, alongside Jody Stevens.

Kassi Ashton, “Heavyweight”

Since her debut, Ashton has been known for writing biting, tell-it-like-it-is songs, and this latest release is a worthy addition to that mission. “Heavyweight,” which Ashton wrote with Luke Laird and Hillary Lindsey, reverberates with swagger as her vocal swerves from soft and sultry to full-throated confidence while giving a steely-eyed dare to her lover to be forthright with her about his intentions to end the relationship: “I can handle your hardest shot/ give me what you got/ I’ve seen way worse than you.”

The Rolling Stones share previously unreleased track ‘Come To The Ball’

The Rolling Stones have shared a previously unreleased track called ‘Come To The Ball’ – you can listen to it below.

READ MORE: Revisit our 2018 video interview with late Rolling Stones legend Charlie Watts

The track appears on the band’s new deluxe reissue of their 1981 album ‘Tattoo You’, which was released today (October 22). The newly remastered and expanded 40th anniversary reissue includes nine extra songs as part of a ‘Lost & Found: Rarities’ disc, recorded during the same era as the original 11-track album.

‘Come To The Ball’ was co-written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards; it was produced with Jimmy Miller, best known for producing classic Stones albums ‘Beggars Banquet’, ‘Let It Bleed’, ‘Sticky Fingers’, and ‘Exile On Main St.’.

You can listen to the track below.

Among the other archived tracks is ‘Living In The Heart Of Love’, a quintessential Stones rock work-out; a “killer version” of ‘Shame, Shame, Shame’, first recorded in 1963 by one of the band’s blues heroes, Jimmy Reed; their reading of Dobie Gray’s ‘Drift Away’; their cover of The Chi-Lites’ ‘Troubles A’ Comin’; and a reggae-tinged version of Start Me Up’.

The 40th anniversary edition of ‘Tattoo You’ – originally released on August 24, 1981 – also comes with ‘Still Life: Wembley Stadium 1982’, a 26-track live album from the band’s London show in June of that year on the ‘Tattoo You’ tour.

The Wembley show includes covers of the Temptations’ ‘Just My Imagination’, Eddie Cochran’s ‘Twenty Flight Rock’, the Miracles’ ‘Going To A Go Go’ and more. It also features early live airings for tracks from the then-new ‘Tattoo You’, such as ‘Start Me Up’, ‘Neighbours’, ‘Little T&A’ and ‘Hang Fire’.

The Rolling Stones are currently in the US on their ‘No Filter’ tour which will next stop in Minneapolis on October 24. It’s their first time out on the road since the passing of drummer Charlie Watts.

In a recent interview, Jagger described the late sticksman as “the heartbeat for the band, and also a very steady personality”.

“He was not to be perturbed. He was a very reliable person, wasn’t a diva – that’s the last thing you want in a drummer,” the frontman continued.

“I miss Charlie because he had a great sense of humour and we also were… outside of the band, we used to hang out quite a lot and have interesting times. We liked sports, we’d go to football, we’d go to cricket games, and we had other interests apart from music.”

You can see the Stones’ remaining ‘No Filter’ US tour dates below.

OCTOBER 2021
24 – Minneapolis, U.S. Bank Stadium
29 – Tampa, Raymond James Stadium

NOVEMBER
2 – Dallas, Cotton Bowl Stadium
6 – Las Vegas, Allegiant Stadium
11 – Atlanta, Mercedes-Benz Stadium
