Rolling Stone Country reports: ""Are we in this together, Nashville?" Jack White asked the crowd at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena at the start of a sprawling, surprise-filled concert. The show, part of White's tour in support of new album Lazaretto, was a homecoming for the guitarist, who further reinforced his love of his adopted city by enlisting Country Music Hall of Famer Loretta Lynn and Nashville local picker William Tyler as his opening acts."

Sam Smith Settles with Tom Petty

Rolling Stone reports: "Over the weekend, The Sun reported that Sam Smith had quietly and amicably settled a copyright dispute with Tom Petty over the likeness between Smith's three-time Grammy-nominated "Stay With Me" and Petty's Full Moon Fever hit "I Won't Back Down," co-written with ELO's Jeff Lynne. In a statement to Rolling Stone, Smith's reps have confirmed that "Stay With Me" is now co-credited to Petty and Lynne, adding that while there are undeniable "similarities" between the two singles, it was a "complete coincidence.""

Ryan Adams Splits with Mandy Moore

Rolling Stone reports: "Ryan Adams' 2014 self-titled album was one of the more downcast, melancholic LPs in the singer-songwriter's vast catalog. While much of Ryan Adams' moodier tone was likely the result of his struggle with the debilitating Ménière's disease and the death of his grandmother, this too perhaps informed his latest album: Ryan Adams and Mandy Moore announced they are divorcing after nearly six years of marriage. Us Weekly confirms that the unlikely couple – he a prolific rocker, she a former pop star – are splitting up."
