The Real Jennette McCurdy Far From iCarly’s Sam

Jennette McCurdy has not let the narcissistic character she plays on iCarly bring her down in real life. Thank God. That’s just her being Sam. But I much prefer the real McCurdy who you can get a glimpse of in this making-of video for her debut country video, “Not That Far Away.” It’s been a year and a half since I first wrote about the young star launching a country career after all those episodes of iCarly on Nickelodeon. And it’s been 10 years since McCurdy got her first taste of Nashville’s charms when she played Faith Hill’s daughter in the video for “The Way You Love Me.”McCurdy’s video debuts on Saturday (Aug. 14) and was directed by Roman White, the man behind “Fifteen,” “You Belong With Me,” “Before He Cheats,” “Last Name,” “Just a Dream,” “So Small,” “Hillbilly Bone” and many more. So I think it’s safe to say, this video will be huge.

Faith Hill Lands on Nashville Lifestyles’ Hot List

Nashville Lifestyles magazine has just issued their Hot List for 2010 and it has a little bit of everything, from iPads and cars to art and celebs. But the one I agree with the most? Faith Hill. Because, well, duh. Look at her. She’s nice to look at, for sure, but she’s also on the list because of what she did this summer when she hosted the Nashville Rising benefit concert with her husband, Tim McGraw. But the magazine also cites her always-classy and never-trashy styles to prove that “some things really do get better with age.” Another hottie on the list? Heather Ann Heatherly, from Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Nashville’s lower Broadway. She’s apparently been behind that bar for 15 years and will be missed when she moves to California. But like Brooks & Dunn say, you can take the girl out of the honky-tonk but you can’t take the honky-tonk out of the girl.
