Taylor Swift Shares Live Performance Of 'Cornelia Street'

Taylor Swift has shared the live performance of the song, "Cornelia Street," originally filmed as part of the "City of Lover" live T.V. concert that premiered earlier this year.

Performed and filmed earlier this year at the L'Olympia Bruno Coquatrix in Paris, the rendition is now available for listening on the official YouTube channel of the 30-year-old superstar.

The concert also included fan-favorites from her most recent album, Lover, including "The Man," "Me!" and "You Need to Calm Down." The set, in its entirety, made its premiere on Hulu and Disney+ on May 17, and "Cornelia Street" is the first to receive a release outside of the exclusive streaming platforms.

Meanwhile, Swift has postponed "Lover Fest," the singer's 6th concert tour and first music festival tour until 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Eric Church Drops New Single 'Stick That In Your Country Song'

Country star Eric Church dropped a new single, "Stick That in Your Country Song," on Thursday (June 25) and followed it up with a lyric video for the track on Friday.

A press release that announced the release of the single described it as "a social commentary on the state of the world ... a rallying cry for cities from Detroit to Baltimore and people from young military veterans to school teachers."

Davis Naish and Jeffrey Steele co-wrote the song, which outlines social issues impacting people in cities like Detroit and Baltimore. It also deals with underpaid teachers and the status of veterans back from combat.

Church had earlier teased the new release in a video sent directly to members of his Church Choir fan community.

"I wanted you guys to hear from me first that a new single is about to hit the world," he shared. "It's gonna be the tip of the spear for what's coming after, and it's a big spear. I believe it's the best we've ever been in our career."

"Stick That in Your Country Song" will be part of Church's upcoming album, which is yet to be titled. His previous record was Desperate Man, released in 2018.

Kelly Clarkson Shares Cover Of TLC's 'Unpretty'

Kelly Clarkson performed a cover version of TLC's 1999 hit "Unpretty" during her daytime talk show on Wednesday (June 24).

Clarkson, who appeared casual with no makeup, was joined by her band members with each of them singing and playing from their respective homes.

"Unpretty," speaks about why one needs to appreciate the inner beauty instead of looking at external appearance.

"You can buy your hair if it won't grow/ You can fix your nose if he says so/ You can buy all the make-up/ That M.A.C. can make, but if/ You can't look inside you/ Find out who am I to/ Be in the position that make me feel/ So damn unpretty," she sang in the chorus.

Clarkson, who recently filed for a divorce from husband and manager Brandon Blackstock, has been sharing new episodes of "The Kelly Clarkson Show" from quarantine.

She had earlier shared covers of Maria Carey's "Vanishing," Madonna's "Like a Prayer", and Rosemary Clooney's "You'll Never Know."
