- Reba McEntire heads the 2011 list of inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame. The versatile singer-actress-all-around-likable-lady will be inducted into modern artist category. Other inductees are Jean Shepard (veterans era artist category) and Bobby Braddock (songwriters category).

- Band-curated festivals are the new in thing. A day after the Roots announced the lineup for their annual picnic in Philadelphia, Wilco announced the lineup for its second Solid Sound festival, June 24-26 in North Adams, Mass. In addition to the obvious headliners, performers include The Levon Helm Band, Thurston Moore, Syl Johnson & the Sweet Divines, Liam Finn, the Handsome Family, Sic Alps and more.

- Rapper Lupe Fiasco's long-delayed new album "Lasers" will finally see the light of day. Just don't look for a glowing endorsement from Lupe himself.
