Yesterday, America didn’t have to watch Mitt Romney get inaugurated. Anyone who’s anyone in politics gathered in Washington D.C. to see President Barack Obama swear an oath to preserve, protect and defend our rights. James Taylor, Kelly Clarkson and Beyoncé got the chance to serenade the entire country with their vocals. But, as it turns out, one of them wasn’t actually singing live.

It’s been a slow week for the music industry, but still, we at BeatCrave managed to scrape up some worthy news from the depths of the internet. This week, Chris Brown is in the news again, not for his collaboration with ex-girlfriend Rihanna, but for stealing a woman’s phone. Adele also made headlines, and history, on the Billboard 200; and President Obama sang a tune at a recent fundraiser. All that and more, below.

Funny how time slips away when you have a front row seat to an all-country setlist Monday night at the White House. And that’s precisely how Barrack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama spent their Monday night, paying tribute to country music. There were performances from country stars Dierks Bentley, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson and even Lyle Lovett flooding through the East Room. There has been no mention of red paper cups or sparks flying, however. Take that, modern country!

Apparently, indie songwriters are some of the nations brightest new historians.
Conceived by songwriters Christian Kiefer, Matthew Gerken and Jefferson Pitcher, “Of Great and Mortal Men: 43 Songs for 43 U.s Presidents” is one of the most compelling indie projects in recent memory. Three discs of epic presidential history seems like a strange idea, but just wait ’til you hear it before you pass judgment! With more than 40 guest artists from all corners of the indie-rock world, it couldn’t get much sweeter, could it?
Yes, actually, it can.
