KXII-TV reports Travis and his fiancee', Mary Davis, showed up to the Four Rivers Outreach fundraising banquet in Denison, Texas, on Thursday.

LADY GAGA CUTS BACK TO KEEP HAPPY

ISTANBUL (AP) -- Lady Gaga is one of the top pop stars in the world, and for a while, she was miserable. She says during the making of her "ARTPOP" record, she had a difficult schedule that left her tired all the time and unable to be creative. She says she respects her former management, but they were focused on making as much money as possible and that's not where her heart is. Lady Gaga also had to deal with the pain in her hip that led to surgery and what she calls "the pain of fame." She says money makes people crazy and she saw that in the people around her. Now, she says she's in a "very happy time" in her life and more sober than she's ever been.

"THE VOICE" STARTS A NEW SEASON WITH PHARRELL WILLIAMS AND GWEN STEFANI

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The way Blake Shelton tells it, Pharrell (fah-REL') Williams is a diabolical nice guy. Shelton says Williams is friendly and thoughtful and he uses that to get into contestants' heads on "The Voice." Shelton says that makes them choose Williams as a coach instead of Shelton. Gwen Stefani says she's been shocked before, but that was before she worked with Adam Levine on "The Voice."

QUEEN AND MICHAEL JACKSON TRACK TO BE RELEASED

LONDON (AP) -- A long-lost track featuring Queen and Michael Jackson will finally see the light of day. Queen singer Freddie Mercury wrote "There Must Be More To Life Than This" during the 1981 "Hot Space" sessions. The band recorded a backing track, and Mercury recorded with Jackson at his home, but the track was never finished. Queen revisited it during the 1984 "The Works" sessions but again didn't finish it. Mercury did his own version for his "Mr. Bad Guy" solo record in 1985. Producer William Orbit has mixed the track, and it will be included in the "Queen Forever" album. It comes out November 10 and also features two other previously unreleased Queen songs.
