A Pop of Country

The 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards

April 6, 7 p.m. on CBS

With household names like Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Blake Shelton, country music has clearly blurred lines between popular and country music. All three are up for major accolades at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. Or perhaps Carrie Underwood will bring home the Female Vocalist of the Year trophy? We’ll be rooting for Darius Rucker (up for two awards) after having just watched the Grammy winner and Grand Ole Opry star perform live at Gilley’s for the Slam Dunk Cancer event put on by Southlake’s own Bill Webb. 

On The Hot Seat

Game of Thrones

Premieres April 6, 9 p.m. on HBO

Dubbed as “The Sopranos in Middle-Earth” by executive producer David Benioff, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is back for its fourth season. Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning series is an epic story of treachery and nobility. Emmy winner Peter Dinklage returns as Tyrion Lannister, the shrewd and calculating youngest child of the House of Lannister of Casterly Rock. Set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos at the end of a decade-long summer, it kind of reminds us of the sweltering month that was August 2011.

Kiss and Tell All

Face the Music: A Life Exposed

By Paul Stanley 

Along with big names like Nirvana, Linda Ronstadt and Peter Gabriel, KISS makes its way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame April 10 as part of the 2014 induction class. Always prepared for a promotional opportunity, KISS co-founder Paul Stanley also drops his biography,Face the Music,” this month. Better known as “Starchild,” Stanley reveals compelling personal revelations and gritty war stories that will surprise even the most steadfast member of the KISS army. Raw and confessional, Stanley offers candid insights into his personal relationships and the turbulent dynamics with his bandmates over the past four decades. No one comes out unscathed — including Stanley himself.

Dances with Football

Draft Day

In theaters April 11

After months of round-the-clock NFL attention, even the biggest fans need a break. Unfortunately, this sentiment is not carried forth by “The League” or Hollywood. Sure, Kevin Costner gave us “Field of Dreams” and “Bull Durham,” but to channel our inner Ron Washington, all we can say is, “This movie ain’t the way baseball go.” Remember, Costner also gave us “The Bodyguard” and “Water World,” and this thinly veiled, league-sanctioned attempt to keep football omnipresent comes complete with a Roger Goodell cameo. In the film, Costner plays the role of Sonny Weaver, Jr., general manager of the Cleveland Browns. Need we say more?
