The Tennessee native just released a new song “Selfish.” Timberlake shared the meaning behind the song ABC news reports, “We were talking about the song itself and just breaking down the idea that you just don’t hear that from men often, that they would express an emotion that makes them vulnerable,” Justin stated. “And then growing up the way I grew up, you’re taught not to do that.”

While fans were hoping for a NSYNC tour announcement this year, Timberlake announced a world tour starting this spring.

Anne Wilson unveils the music video for her debut Country single, “Rain In The Rearview” exclusively on CMT/Paramount Times Square billboards. The music video comes just days after Wilson was revealed as a member of the coveted 2024 CMT Next Women of Country class.

The video begins with Wilson driving in her car as rain begins to pour before the imagery takes a poignant turn, finding Wilson standing strong in the pouring rain – a powerful symbol of finding strength in the midst of challenges. The video comes to a close as Wilson drives into the unknown, taking a bold leap towards brighter days ahead.

“​​The three versions of me and the perspectives of all three were so accurate to how my life has been,” Wilson shares with CMT. “We all go through different seasons and sometimes need the reminder that we can leave our past behind us.”
