Legendary Nashville Songwriter Shane McAnally Made the Parenting Move of the Century After His Daughter Cut Her Own Hair
I will never forget the day that I let my next door neighbor play "beauty shop" with real scissors. I was five and she was seven, so she had to know what she was doing, right? So, so wrong. My mother nearly killed me when saw that not only was my long, gorgeous brown hair gone, it was hacked off.
That was the first time I was ever grounded. And, last, if I recall. My school pictures from that year are the only reminder of my stupidity.
A similar situation just happened to songwriter Shane McAnally, who has written and produced for the likes of Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson, Sam Hunt, Kenny Chesney, Reba McEntire, Jake Owen, Luke Bryan, The Band Perry, Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert.
His sweet daughter, just took scissors to her own head. And he retaliated with the best punishment ever.
"SHE CUT HER HAIR," he wrote on Instagram. "Luckily, you can barely tell. But...to insure she never does that again, we told her a few dolls, ponies, scepters, crowns, and princess dresses had to be put away for a bit."
And he made an appropriately dramatic video of her doing it.
"Please note: this is about 1/20th of the stuff she has," he adds. "And, really, how is she ever gonna learn of the severity of cutting your own hair. Please notice her brother's assistance and then his hand pulling the suitcase away at the end. This is her Meryl Streep Oscar winning performance, btw. And she will get this all back in a week."
As Ariana Grande plots her career and her personal journey following the horrific attack that killed 22 people outside of her Manchester, England concert, one dad in Georgia has a few things to say to her. (Things that I'm so glad someone finally said out loud.)
I will say-- if you would've asked me in 2002, who would end up a big-time mogul and consistently creating between Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore, I'm not sure I would've said Jessica Simpson.

A couple of weeks ago, Carrie Underwood called up the Nashville Predators before a home playoff game and asked to sing the National Anthem. Since then, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood have been asked to sing. This series of events caused the Preds' "regular" National Anthem singer, Dennis K. Morgan, to reach out to the media and air his disdain for these decisions.
If you missed ABC's remake of the classic "Dirty Dancing," you only missed the opportunity to see what happens when you try to reinvent an eternal classic by adding a Pussycat Doll into the mix. Of course, the Internet had a lot to say about one of the saddest primetime made-for-TV movies ever.
I've always said I'm glad social media didn't exist when I was in middle school. I would've had more terrible YouTube videos out there than one could ever imagine.
6 Pretty Hilarious Things Jessica Simpson Said on "CBS Sunday Morning" (Before That Interview with Ellen)
If you don't watch "CBS Sunday Morning," you're missing out on one of the most enlightening and endearing shows on TV. Like a lot of things I do on Sunday, I religiously watch this show. Last week, Jessica Simpson was interviewed and I didn't think much of it, until I saw that super weird interview on "The Ellen Show."
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has played some incredible roles over the years. From his years as a cocky tough guy in the squared circle, to a guy that is racing to Witch Mountain (Which mountain? THAT mountain!).
