Many rock stars graced the main stage on Day 2 of Las Vegas’s Life Is Beautiful festival, but Saturday’s biggest sensation was a real rock ‘n’ roll animal: lovable Australian shepherd Cocoa, the mascot and official fifth member of California reggae band Stick Figure.
2 Chainz wasn’t going to let a little thing like a broken leg slow him down when he played Las Vegas’s Life Is Beautiful festival on Friday.
Lee Ann Womack, one of the most distinctive and decorated vocalists in modern music, is set to release her latest album, "The Lonely, the Lonesome & the" Gone Oct. 27. The set taps deeply into the country, soul, gospel, and blues of her native East Texas, resulting in an audacious, personal, and sharp-edged work of art.
The Voice top four finalist Jeffery Austin stood out on Season 9 for his plaintive balladry, but his new single, “Bulletproof,” is unexpectedly effervescent. The synth-driven track, mixed by Peter Mokran (Christina Aguilera, Toni Braxton, Prince, Flaming Lips) and co-written/produced by Sayers Club music director Nick Rosen (Bruno Mars, Macy Gray, Feist), still addresses Austin’s go-to topics of heartbreak and loss — but its uptempo chorus gives off an ‘80s vibe a la Bleachers or Carly Rae Jepsen, and the song showcases entirely new facets of the crooner’s vocals.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis may be working separately for the time being — Macklemore’s solo album, Gemini, just came out, and Lewis is busying himself with production projects (he produced/co-wrote Kesha’s comeback single, “Praying”) and his own music — but the two are still best buddies, as evidenced by their adorable rapport while record shopping at Denver’s Wax Trax store. It’s a bond they’ve shared since meeting on Myspace in 2006, after which Lewis became the rapper’s photographer and, later, his artistic partner. “We had nothing in common at that time,” admits Macklemore (real name: Ben Haggerty) with a laugh.
With a music festival to help inaugurate, rock band X Ambassadors is heading back to Ithaca, New York, where its members grew up. The band sat down recently to discuss the festival, the evolution of their sound, and how they plan to do Ithaca proud this weekend.
For those of you who are unaware, Tuesday, Sept. 19 is the 16th annual National Talk Like a Pirate Day. Maybe it’s even cooler — because Santa Claus is awesome and all, but he’s not as awesome as Captain Jack Sparrow, is he? Only two stylish, A-list wenches like these could come up with a trend like Pirate Chic.
The Life Is Beautiful festival is three days of music, art, food, and ideas. This year, Yahoo Music will be live-streaming many of the performances. Here’s our schedule.

Yahoo Music is excited to premiere a sneak peek at the episode, where Osbourne reflects on the day she first met her future husband.
Making a name for oneself in Nashville is a daunting task for any artist — Music City is notorious for being the tip-top pinnacle for sonic talent — but few musicians have worked harder than Kip Moore at maintaining success. The singer received massive critical acclaim for his 2012 debut Up All Night, but his follow-up, 2014’s Wild Ones, threw his career for a loop. Despite underperforming by label standards, the record raged as something of a cult phenomenon, attracting a growing fan base despite its lackluster stats on paper.
Prophets of Rage – the supergroup featuring members of Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill – are poised to release their eponymous debut album on September 15. Based on what fans have heard already (the band played a blistering rendition of their socio-political single “Living on the 110” on The Tonight Show September 11), the set is certain to go down in history as a classic, no-holds-barred resistance statement for the Trump era.

In "Queen in 3-D," Queen's Brian May writes candidly about singer Freddie Mercury’s struggles with the media, comparing his experience to the very different experience of current Queen frontman Adam Lambert, who is able to live in the spotlight as an openly gay man in a way that Mercury sadly never could.
A bombshell interview between Dr. Phil and Sinead O'Connor is shedding light on the singer's lifelong battles with depression, suicide attempts and other severe mental issues that led to her online breakdown earlier this year.
