He took on a defiant tone that resonated with the 7,000 fans in attendance, Nola.com reported. 

“I'll be damned if I'm going to let anyone scare me,” Aldean told the crowd, which gathered in Champions Square.

As if to emphasize the point, Aldrean sang the late Tom Petty's “I Won't Back Down,” which energized the crowd into a sing-along of defiance, Nola.com reported.

Aldean said proceeds from the sale of his cover of the song will be donated to aid victims of the Las Vegas shooting.

Aldean admitted to the crowd that “It’s been a crazy few weeks,” explaining how he thought it would be tough to play an outdoor venue after he and his band members were forced to flee the stage at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Oct. 1 as shots rained down from a hotel window.

But “the craziest thing is,” he said, was that playing music “is where we're the most comfortable.”

Children were present when the two filmed the video at Douglas County High School last month, according to WSB.

A district official told the news station the stars had permission to film at the school for the MTV horror series “Scream,” not to shoot the rap video.

“I can’t believe they did that at school,” parent Francis Glass told WSB.

Glass said she thought Palmer, who has starred in stage, television and movie productions such as “Akeelah and the Bee,” always carried herself with class. 

“And this is not class,” Glass said. “Oh no. That's trashy.”

The video has been viewed more than 6 million times.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, he said he had replaced drinking with smoking marijuana.

“I put it where drinking used to go, and the quality of life has gone up considerably. Drinking is a [expletive] con. How much is enough? Every time I drank, I was looking for some sort of regulated amount. It always feels wrong for me. I always feel like I went overboard. I said, 'Two, now it’s three, now we’re at four?’” he said at the time.

Mayer maintained that he “never had a serious issue with it” but wanted to take a break. “There’s never an amount that felt like I was succeeding at life. It always felt wrong.”

Harry Connick Jr.'s wife Jill Goodacre opens up about battle with breast cancer

Jill Goodacre’s life changed forever five years ago when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

According to People, the wife of multi-platinum recording artist Harry Connick Jr. learned of her diagnosis during an annual mammogram. She said that because her breasts are dense, she was ordered by doctors to have a sonogram. After the sonogram, doctors noticed something and ordered a biopsy. She was later diagnosed with stage 1 invasive ductal carcinoma and underwent a lumpectomy, followed by radiation.

“I was scared I was going to lose her, absolutely,” Connick Jr. said, according to E! News. “I wasn’t going to let her see that, but I was. I know from losing my mom that the worst can happen. She’s my best friend, and I really don’t know what I would do without her.”

Connick Jr.’s mother died of ovarian cancer when he was 13.

Since the lumpectomy and radiation treatments, Goodacre has been on Tamoxifen, an estrogen modulator pill that helps prevent the development of hormone receptor-positive breast cancers.

As she approaches the five-year mark, Goodacre said she is looking forward to stopping the Tamoxifen, which has a side effect of weight gain and is something the former Victoria’s Secret model struggled with.

She is also looking forward to opening up about her journey, something she has kept secret for years.

“It wasn’t like we were superstitious, like if we said something about being in the clear we’d somehow jinx it,” she said. “But we wanted to be well on the other side of things before we told everybody. The doctors all say that after the five-year mark, things look optimistic, so we’re starting to feel pretty good.”

The Atlanta rapper said his first solo album in five years will arrive in early 2018.

“This is the fourth time I’ve made ‘Flockaveli II,’” he said in a statement. “I lost the original version when I lost my hard drives, and then I lost two more after that. With this version of the album, I just did it.”

The Gucci Mane protégé recorded 42 tracks for the album, but pared it down to 19. Other producers featured include Lex Leuger, Supa Mario and C Notes.

“An album is supposed to be personal. People want to hear me,” Waka said. “There was a whole bunch of frustration and anger making this album, but I want people to know the same as ‘Flockaveli II.’ Better delivery, better flow. This is a Waka Flocka album.”

Earlier this year, the MC, legally known as Juaquin James Malphurs,was acquitted of gun charges stemming from a 2014 arrest at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Easybeats songwriter, AC/DC producer George Young dead at 70

George Young, an Australian songwriter who co-wrote the 1965 hit “Friday on My Mind” for the Easybeats and later was a producer for AC/DC, has died, The Guardian reported. He was 70.

>> Read more trending news

Young’s death was reported on Facebook by the music publishing company Alberts, which has both the Easybeats and AC/DC in its musical catalog.

Young was the brother of AC/DC’s Angus and Malcolm Young. 

With the Easybeats, he and fellow band member Harry Vanda produced songs like “Yesterday’s Hero” and “Love Is in the Air” for John Paul Young and “Evie” for Stevie Wright.

George Young played bass with his younger brothers during the early years of AC/DC, and then produced several of the band’s more successful releases, including “High Voltage,” “T.N.T.,” “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap,” “Let There Be Rock,” and “Powerage,” The Guardian reported.

“Without his help and guidance, there would not have been an AC/DC,” the band wrote on its website. “As a musician, songwriter, producer, adviser and much, much more, you could not ask for a more dedicated and professional man.”

Young was born in Scotland in 1946 and migrated to Australia with his family as a teenager, The Guardian reported. The Easybeats formed after Young met Vanda in Sydney.

The Easybeats broke up in 1969. Young and Vanda were inducted into the inaugural Aria hall of fame in 1988; the Easybeats were inducted in 2005.
