Country outlaw Shooter Jennings and one-time ‘American Idol’ contestant Bucky Covington make an odd marriage, but on ‘Drinking Side of Country,’ their voices and styles compliment each other like bar stool buddies telling the same story. They may be too similar, in fact, as it’s difficult to tell who’s who during parts of the rowdy rolling cut from Covington’s upcoming album.
This morning’s shooting in a Colorado movie theater casts a heavy cloud over a weekend many fans of the new Batman movie ‘Dark Knight Rises’ had been looking forward to for months. The sadness extends well beyond the Denver, Colo. suburb, as men and women across America — including country stars — are voicing thoughts and prayers for the families affected. When you experience tragedy in your personal life, which song or songs help you heal?
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.
How did country newcomer RaeLynn celebrate after signing with Republic Nashville? “I’m gonna go eat some wings for sure, that’s my plan tonight,” the ‘The Voice’ singer told us — with her usual playful sass — following the news. “I like honey-barbecue wings … yeah, duh. My local B2W. .”
The season finale of ABC’s ‘Duets’ is tonight (July 19), with Sugarland’sJennifer Nettles landing both of her singers inside the Top 3. John Glosson and J Rome will square off against Kelly Clarkson‘s singer Jason Furol, and then viewers will decide the winner. Who do you think should win ‘Duets’?
Two of country music’s outlaws square off on today’s Taste of Country Showdown. The battle will end with an assault of phone call voting on Taste of Country Nights radio on Thursday night. You can vote now for either returning champion Eric Church and his song ‘Creepin’,’ or challenger Brantley Gilbert‘s new single ‘Kick It in the Sticks.’
One of the songs fans of the FARM will be talking about after listening to their new self-titled debut album is track No. 4, ‘Be Grateful.’ It’s a song about appreciating what you have, rather than complaining about what you don’t. Nick Hoffman, Damien Horne and Krista Marie prove they’re doing just that in this new video, premiering exclusively on Taste of Country.
July 2012 is loaded with new songs for your radio. Tim McGraw and Eric Church released new cuts early, and Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert have kept the momentum going as we pass mid-month. It’s a popular time of year to release new music, as artists prepare to drop new albums in time for the Christmas shopping season.
Tight harmonies, vivid lyrics and skilled instrumentalists are enough to make a decent country music album, but it takes a talented producer to make it great. ‘The FARM’ is a fun 43 minute wall of sound, but there’s a polish on the record that’s difficult to penetrate.
There is a new Showdown champion! After almost record voting yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio, Eric Church‘s new single ‘Creepin” kinged Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ by an almost two-to-one margin. The fourth single from Church’s ‘Chief’ album seems poised to be another big song for the North Carolina-born country star. It could even become his third straight No. 1 hit.
Kitty Wells did almost as much for country music as the guitar and fiddle. The Queen of Country died on Monday at the age of 92 after complications from a recent stroke. Wells was not only a major hitmaker in the ’50s and ’60s, but she was the first female country singer with a voice that the mostly male-dominated industry stepped aside and respected.
