For 11 seasons, ‘American Idol’ has ignored country music when it comes to the judges panel. But with Steven Tyler announcing his ‘Idol’ departure on Thursday, it’s time to make things right. Stars like Blake Shelton and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland have proven that Nashville has artists capable of shining on a nationally-televised stage. Which country artist do you think would be the perfect fit to replace Tyler on ‘American Idol?’
Easton Corbin fans gave country superstar Tim McGraw a fight on last night’s Showdown, but ‘Lovin’ You Is Fun’ came up a few votes short, meaning ‘Truck Yeah’ is the new champion. Tonight, McGraw’s rock-country hit from his upcoming album will face off against another song that will bring a wide grin to the countriest of country boys. Vote for either ‘Truck Yeah’ or Craig Morgan‘s ‘Corn Star’ here, and then listen to the battle tonight at 10PM on Taste of Country Nights.
Country newcomers Parmalee come from the North Carolina rock scene, and it shows on ‘Musta Had a Good Time,’ their debut single on Stoney Creek Records. The loud and rowdy track relies on a screaming guitar lick and rock n’ roll riffs, which stand out like Marilyn Manson would at a Scotty McCreery show.
Kellie Pickler was in the stands watching Luke Bryan sing the National Anthem on Tuesday night, but she wasn’t aware of the ‘Drunk on You’ singer’s use of “key words” which helped him get through the song. She says she understands what Bryan was going through at the All-Star Game, and the anxiety that comes with singing in front of millions of television viewers, and can’t understand the criticism.
Happy birthday to the Band Perry‘s Kimberly Perry today (July 12)! To ring in the singer’s 29th birthday, we’re celebrating the her exquisite fashion sense.

Carrie Underwood has won five straight Showdowns, meaning her song ‘Blown Away’ will become just the fourth song ever retired to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.

Viewers were quick to call out Luke Bryan for appearing to check his left hand at moments during his performance of the National Anthem at the MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City, Mo. on Tuesday night. Now, the singer has come clean, admitting to have written “key words” down to ensure he did his best.
Jason Clucas has his brother to thank for winning the Toby Keith flyaway to Las Vegas. The Peabody, Mass. native says he wouldn’t have gotten into country music without his bro’s influence. That led him to Toby Keith, who he is a huge fan of, then to Taste of Country — and now, to Sin City to watch the singer play at the Red Rock Casino on August 11.
Luke Bryan and Kellie Pickler did country music proud last night, singing the National Anthem and ‘God Bless America’ at the MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City, Mo. It’s difficult to argue each singer’s performances were anything but spectacular, but some are wondering if the ‘Drunk on You’ singer might have had some help. What do you think Bryan was peeking at while he sang?
Carrie Underwood needs just one more win and her new song ‘Blown Away’ will be retired to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame. Last night, the superstar beat up on the debut single from Kristen Kelly, earning 85 percent of the votes counted by the Taste of Country Nights team. To reach enshrinement, however, she’ll have to win a handicap match against a hot new trio called the FARM.
Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are celebrating their second wedding anniversary today, July 10, 2012. The couple snuck away to a plantation in Georgia for the July ceremony back in 2010. They had to fit the date around both the hockey star’s NHL schedule, and the country queen’s touring schedule — that’s no easy task.
Much like the storm that rips through her song ‘Blown Away,’ Carrie Underwood is unstoppable. The singer built an early lead during yesterday’s Showdown against Hunter Hayes‘ hit ‘Wanted,’ and after both songs faced off on Taste of Country Nights, she was crowned champion once again. Her new single needs two more wins to be immortalized in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.
