More names are being announced for the upcoming 21st season of Dancing with the Stars kicking off September 14th. Of course, you can’t have a new cast without a member of a boy band and this time it’s Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys in addition to Steve Irwin’s daughter, 17-year-old Bindi Irwin who was the first to be officially named to the cast earlier this week. According to rumor, Chaka Khan, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Paula Deen might be dancing for the coveted mirror ball trophy, even though we know Paula has turned down DWTS in the past.

Speaking of stars turning down Dancing with the Stars, E! Online has a list of celebrities who declined to cha cha including Demi Moore, Caitlyn Jenner, Lindsay Lohan, Tim Allen and Facebook’s own Mark Zuckerberg.

How did Frankie Ballard learn to rock the stage? He did it with lots of practice… and by sitting in the audience and paying close attention to everything. He says it’s the paying attention part, but I think it was practice. See, we had him at our Sportsman’s Expo event a few years ago and he was playing on stage when our events gal realized ‘Fetch and Fish’ was kicking off in a few… She stopped the poor guy on stage mid performance with a bunch a black labs to send the audience to see swimming dogs. Of course, Frankie is a class act, so he rolled with the punches and got right back to singing!

Remember me telling you about Fox’s Urban Cowboy series a few months ago? Yeah, it’s an adaptation of the original and they’ve added Jim Belushi to the cast… because you know he’s a homerun! Plus, when I think about cowboys, Jim Belushi is totally the first person who comes to mind… not!

I don’t know if you’ve seen Carrie Underwood’s new video for Smoke Break, but she’s SMOKING HOT… By now, you’ve already pushed play on the video, right? Who knew short shorts and knee boots could be so flash?
