By Brian Mansfield Time was, you couldn't be a country singer if you didn't have a cowboy hat. These days, though, the most reliable route to a Nashville record deal seems to be through a reality show. It also helps if you're a cute blonde. Carrie Underwood walked off the American Idol set and straight into a Nashville studio; Kellie Pickler and Kristy Lee Cook followed. Miranda Lambert came from Nashville Star, Julianne Hough from Dancing With the Stars. Crossover act Jessica Simpson...

By Anne Neville The young woman on the phone sounds thoughtful, introspective, with a slight twang in her pleasant alto voice that becomes more noticeable when she mentions her roots as "just a normal girl from Texas." In fact, Jessica Simpson sounds nothing like the confused "Is this chicken or fish?" ditz from the reality show "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica" or the "I know, buffaloes don't have wings!" scatterbrain from the Pizza Hut commercials.

But the 62-year-old musician is also an unequaled singer-songwriter with a Southern drawl-soaked soprano and a flair for the down-home turn of phrase. Parton has penned more than two dozen No. 1 hits during her five-decade career; standouts for the 2006 Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts honoree include...

By Scott D. Pierce Deseret News BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Once he's done hosting ABC's "High School Musical: Get in the Picture," Nick Lachey might have a career ahead of him as a spokesman for the Utah Travel Council.

And while show-biz types who don't live in Utah are prone to...
