It's a brand new week, and to help you stay up to date, we're helping you sift through the latest news from Hollywood. Since it's the new year, and there's definitely a lot going on. From new DIY shows to one-on-one interview with big time stars, we have a jam-packed show for you this week.
Country star Travis Tritt, who has sold millions of albums and was part of the country music resurgence in the 1990s, chatted with our Sonia Isabelle about his first new album in years.
The New Album: 'Set In Stone'
Tritt released his new single "Smoking A Bar," and fans can finally enjoy once again the singer's unmistakable voice. Isabelle asked why he waited for fourteen years before releasing new music. Tritt said:
"It wasn't because I was lazy. I made a conscious choice about 13 years ago that I wanted to focus on the live performance part of what I do."
But two years ago, things started shifting for Tritt:
"I hired a new manager and he started talking to me: 'you've had a great career but I still think you've got a lot of great music left in you."
Isabelle then asked if Tritt would describe this album as "classic outlaw Travis music." And Tritt replied:
"That's the only way I know how to describe it. It's going to be a Travis Tritt album."
And not performing live has been very difficult for Tritt:
"I've been like a caged animal. As soon as you're gonna open that cage up, we're gonna run."
Travis Tritt's new album "Set In Stone" is available everywhere now!
We're taking you through the best movies the summer has to offer.
To kick things off, we talked to star of the upcoming movie Triumph, RJ Mitte. RJ plays a character with cerebral palsy who, despite his condition, is determined to compete in his high school's wrestling team.
RJ gave us more insight on the importance of this character and the movie, which is based off a true story:
"Anytime I can represent the CP community in a project, I'm always down to do so. Um, but being able to represent, um, a real person's dream and belief and goal is just as amazing. And I'm so lucky for that"
Look for Triumph playing now in theaters.
Also new to theaters is action thriller Wrath of Man. The movie stars Jason Statham who plays a truck driver with a mysterious past. Statham is joined onstage with co-stars Josh Hartnett, Holt McCallany, and Rocci WIlliams.
For all our scary movie lovers, Chris Rock's and Samuel L. Jackson's new movie has got you covered. Spiral tells the story of a detective and his rookie partner taking charge in a murder investigation. It hits theaters May 14.
It doesn't slow down after these months with The Suicide Squad releasing on August 6. Joel Kinnaman said:
"It's gonna be incredible, it's so silly and ridiculous and gory and, uh, just really really funny and well crafted but in a very laid back way."
