One more win and she’s in. Lauren Alaina is on the verge of having a second song enter the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame. Her new one, ‘Eighteen Inches,’ mopped up ‘Let There Be Cowgirls’ by Chris Cagle yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio. If the third single from ‘Wildflower’ can top the new song from Toby Keith, it will join ‘Georgia Peaches’ in the Hall.
Make it three in a row for Lauren Alaina and her new single ‘Eighteen Inches.’ After another day of heavy voting online and via the telephone on Taste of Country Nights radio, the song narrowly ousted Jana Kramer‘s hit ‘Why Ya Wanna.’ Now it’s up to fans of the Carrie Underwood co-written ballad to step up once again, if they want to best a man that’s been turning out hits for over a decade.
Toby Keith has found a fast racecar, and he’s not getting out of it until it falls apart. ‘I Like Girls That Drink Beer’ is his 12th booze-fueled single in 20 years, including three recent ones in a row. The man sings what he knows, and it works… mostly.
After discussing his latest album, ‘Hard 2 Love,’ and the emotional toll being a touring artist can take on relationships, Lee Brice had a minute — literally, one minute — to talk about the truly important things in life.
Yesterday, news that country’s own superstar Brad Paisley is being considered as a judge on ‘American Idol‘ spread quickly. The ‘Celebrity’ singer hasn’t commented on the rumors, and executives at Fox are staying quiet as well. Do you think Brad Paisley would make a good judge on the hit reality television show?
The four singles released from Luke Bryan‘s ‘Tailgates and Tanlines’ album provide an accurate script for a story about the life of a bachelor. It’s a life that can be a little wild and crazy, but mostly it’s filled with heartache, confusion and regret. ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ provides the regret.
Jason Aldean is a perfect three-for-three in Taste of Country Showdowns. Last night his new song ‘Take a Little Ride’ took care of Sara Evans‘ new single ‘Anywhere.’ The laid-back lead single from his upcoming album will need plenty of support online this afternoon, and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio to topple a fourth challenger. Remember, five wins in a row gets a song to the Showdown Hall of Fame.
Yesterday’s Showdown was the most voted on ever! Fans of Brantley Gilbert and Eric Church displayed their loyalty, casting votes until the last seconds of the contest on Taste of Country Nights radio. In the end, Gilbert’s ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ won with just over 60 percent of the vote, meaning the soon-to-be hit song will take on another challenger. Today, it’s a good friend of the ‘Halfway to Heaven’ famer.
The summer heatwave comes a with a splash of country music before the days grow shorter and the kids return to school. The new country music releases for August 2012 are no exception. While July had so many country superstars with new country music releases that it was difficult to decide where to spend your money, August has just four that look promising.
Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Grunderson of Love and Theft may not get invited to any country celebrity hunts after their performance in the latest ‘Love and Theft TV’ episode. Watch both men in camoflauge and hunter’s orange try to hunt down a mythical beast known as Sasquirrel in this Taste of Country exclusive premiere video.
Jason Aldean‘s next album seems poised to pick up where ‘My Kinda Party’ left off. The singer’s first single doesn’t deviate from the style or themes the Macon, Ga. native has built a career on. With ‘Take a Little Ride’ Aldean buys into the theory that if it ain’t broke…
The Mavericks couldn’t have timed their reunion more perfectly. The ’90s hitmakers bring their familiar sound back to country radio with ‘Born to Be Blue,’ a track from their new ‘Suited Up and Ready’ EP. Too often, getting the old band back together produces tired rewrites of a classic sound. The Mavericks have managed to keep their signature style without alienating younger fans.
