Kelleigh Bannen‘s scorn is anything but manufactured on her debut single ‘Sorry on the Rocks.’ The country newcomer — who signed to EMI Nashville barely two months ago — introduces herself to country music fans as a strong female artist willing to take no mistreatment.
Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw and Eric Church all make strong debuts on the Top 40 Country Songs list for August, but none of their singles were good enough to take down a song that ranked No. 2 on the July 2012 list. Aldean comes closest, with ‘Take a Little Ride’ making a Top 5 debut this month.
Lauren Alaina becomes the first artist with two songs in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame after her new single ‘Eighteen Inches’ topped Toby Keith’s ‘I Like Girls That Drink Beer’ on Tuesday. Her fans once again proved they’re amongst the most passionate in country music. Today, and tonight, on Taste of Country Nights, two new challengers will battle.
Carrie Underwood‘s videos have been much celebrated by fans and the country music industry in the six years since she released her first clip for ‘Jesus Take the Wheel.’ The new video for ‘Blown Away‘ may be her most dramatic yet, but is it the best? What is your favorite Carrie Underwood video?
Rachel Holder’s new single ‘In Your Arms’ is a showcase for a singer who’s skilled vocally, but in need of life experience to carry such a majestic and cathartic love ballad. She’ll draw comparisons to Martina McBride and Shania Twain, but the 19-year-old doesn’t own the fragility of love like a more experienced singer might.
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.
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.
For Love and Theft, it’s addition by subtraction. The loss of a record label and a band member resulted in a project that is tighter and more accessible than anything on the group’s 2009 debut album. The best songs on ‘Love and Theft‘ are those that tell simple stories and those that rely on simple melodies. That’s most of the album.
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.
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?
