NASHVILLE (AP) -- Ty Herndon describes himself as "an out, proud and happy gay man." Herndon tells People magazine he realized he has an incredible story that could possibly help someone's child or grandchild not to go through as much suffering as he has. Herndon, who's 51, says he came out to close family when he was 20. He was married twice and now has a longtime male partner, Matt. Herndon says both he and his partner are practicing Christians and he believes, "We get to choose who we love, and that includes God, and he loves us back." Herndon says the country music business has been more accepting of homosexuality and points to Kacey Musgraves winning the CMA award for song of the year for "Follow Your Arrow" as proof.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Interpol plan to perform in Boston tonight after they were snowed in for two days in western New York.

CHICAGO (AP) -- Echosmith sing about wishing they were like the cool kids. Now they have to deal with jokes that they ARE the cool kids. Singer Sydney Sierota (sih-ROH'-tah) says the song "Cool Kids" is about the desire to fit in, and that's true no matter how much success you get. She says she still feels inadequate, but becoming a cool kid is a process and what makes you cool is being yourself. Her brother, bassist Noah Sierota, says their recent appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" made him think maybe they are cool after all. He says he can't even watch it because it's "too trippy" for him.
