The musical inspired by A&E's hit reality series "Duck Dynasty" is closing on May 17 due to poor ticket sales just one month after the Broadway production opened at the Crown Theater inside Las Vegas' Rio All-Suite Hotel on April 15.
Centered on the best-selling book The Duck Commander Family by "Duck Dynasty" stars Willie and Korie Robertson, "The Duck Commander Musical: How Faith, Family and Ducks Built A Dynasty" tells the rags-to-riches story of the famed Robertson family, which also includes Phil and Si Robertson of West Monroe, Louisiana. Despite heavy discounts on each performance, the production is closing down early after weak ticket sales, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
"The Duck Commander Musical" boasts a contemporary score that blends country music with rock, pop, and gospel. Furthermore, the 90-minute show at the 680-seat Crown Theater features a multimedia set, bringing the backwoods of West Monroe to Las Vegas with cutting-edge technology. The production was originally scheduled to run through June. more >>
Prior to the premiere of the documentary "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" on HBO, the documentary's director Brett Morgen revealed that a new Kurt Cobain album will be released later this year. Morgen said in an interview that the new album will not be what people will expect.
He told The Huffington Post "will feel like you're kind of hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia, Washington as he fiddles about. It's going to really surprise people."
The new album is said to be a compilation of songs from a recently discovered stash of previously recorded music that Morgen reportedly found in Cobain's storage facility. He discovered 107 cassettes with 200 hours of recorded music which has not been heard before. Morgen apparently had full access to Cobain's personal life while he was working on the documentary and he was able to "sift through boxes of home videos and cassettes." more >>

Outspoken Christian and rapper, Lecrae, says his ascent to the top of mainstream music charts like the Billboard 200 and being recognized with Grammy awards for his work has little to do with his talent and more to do with God's plan for his life.
"I don't have [the talent or crossover appeal]," said Lecrae in a recent interview with Christian rap site Rapzilla about his friend Kendrick Lamar's critically-acclaimed album "To Pimp A Butterfly".
"I don't accredit any of this to just my capability or talent. I think God is doing something far beyond my comprehension. So I don't understand it. I don't try to make a science out of it," added the rapper whose latest album "Anomaly" became his first number one album on the Billboard 200 last summer. more >>
