Call them country music’s young guns, a new generation of stars who are bound not only by chart-topping talent but by friendship.
Chances are you’ve heard one of their songs on the radio recently and they’ll be hard to miss Sunday during the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas after dominating nominations.
The group swirls around a nucleus of Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, fast friends whose positive energy draws in others like moths to a flame.
“I think it’s cool because it just kind of started all the sudden,” Lambert said. “The new generation is starting to really show what we’re about and it’s cool that we’re really fond of each other genuinely. It’s really not about competition with us. We’re all happy for each other.”
The group includes Scott’s bandmates, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, and Lambert’s boyfriend, Blake Shelton. Scott has been friends with Taylor Swift since country’s golden girl was 14. Lambert and Carrie Underwood are buds, too.
Add in Luke Bryan, David Nail and Ashley Monroe and you’ve got a regular posse. So far the friendship has spawned hit songs and a lot of fresh ideas.
“Everybody’s just kind of working for each other and pulling for each other,” Shelton said. “That helps a lot. This business is so competitive. When somebody is doing real good and has your back that’s one thing, but when everybody’s doing real good, kind of shoving each other along, it makes it that much stronger a force.”

Before the release of their latest album, Save Me, San Francisco, Train went on a three-year hiatus. While many groups have trouble getting back on the horse after spending time apart, the San Francisco-based band hasn’t missed a beat, and their current single, “Hey, Soul Sister,” sits at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. It’s the most successful song of their long career (which has also included the smash hits “Meet Virginia” and “Drops of Jupiter”), and it earned them a #MusicMonday shout-out a few weeks ago from Orianthi.
Train have always had a healthy country influence in their sound, but Save Me, San Francisco has a tremendous amount of twang and heartbreak. So it makes sense that frontman Pat Monahan has been spinning one of country music’s biggest divas at the moment.
“The song I’m into right now is Miranda Lambert’s ‘The House That Built Me,’ ” Monahan told MTV News on the set of Train’s new video, which is being directed by former Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz. “I just think it’s a really amazing song and a super-great record. If she wants to do a ‘Crossroads’ with us, call me up!”
“The House That Built Me” comes from Lambert’s latest album, Revolution and is not only steadily climbing up the Billboard Country Songs chart but also up the Hot 100. The track was written by Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin, who between them have written hits for Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride and Bonnie Raitt.
Perhaps Monahan is trying to expand his horizons through collaboration, as he is already working with INXS on an album that will re-imagine that band’s classic hits with new singers, a roster that also includes Rob Thomas and the Killers’ Brandon Flowers.
