Jason Aldean returns to a sound his longtime fans are familiar with on “Lights Come On,” the first single from his next studio album. There’s not a whiff of R&B influence to be found on this straightforward country rocker. It’s a song built for his live show.
Carrie Underwood’s "Church Bells" tastes like sweet revenge and adds to her growing body count of no good men. The singer’s fictional story of a poor girl named Jenny quickly takes a dark turn, and the singer celebrates her antagonist’s inevitable fate.
The 2016 ACM Awards are right around the corner, and you know what that means — it's time for Taste of Country readers and staff to square off and predict the winners in one of the biggest country competitions of the year.
Reba McEntire really is the hardest working woman in country music. The legend grew up in a rancher's household, meaning she often got more done before sunrise than some do in a week. There were some jobs that weren't for the squeamish ... OK, there's one job in particular that will make a city boy squirm, but during this episode of 'You Think You Know Country?' you'll see how holding a bucket led to holding several CMA and ACM Awards.
High Valley have scored a nice Showdown victory with their new single, but wow, are they going to have their hands full today and over the weekend. The sibling duo will square off against Kenny Chesney in a new challenge.
Kenny Chesney says “Noise” is his first song with real social importance, and the timing couldn’t be better. Without being political, he takes on politics. Without sounding like a luddite, he challenges technology. Without smelling curmudgeonly, he recalls how things once were.
Eric Paslay just released a music video for his latest single, "High Class," and it's a whole lot of fun! That video — along with Logan Brill's "Shuteye" — is now up for votes in our poll, but will either make the Top 10 Countdown?
Reba McEntire orchestrated a blowout in her Round 1 matchup for top vocalist in country music. The legend took over 90 percent of the vote against Mickey Guyton, setting up a Round 2 pairing against a female vocalist with an enormous voting fan base.
Luke Bryan fans are lovin' the superstar's latest single "Huntin' and Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day" to the tune of a big Showdown win over Kelsea Ballerini over the weekend. The latest single from Kill the Lights nabbed nearly 60 percent of the Showdown vote to set up a battle with another country boy that doesn't care for the letter "G."
Luke Bryan does his best Alabama impersonation with "Huntin' and Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day," the fourth single from Kill the Lights. Sonically the song is a throwback to the mid-80s — think Cajun hideaways and couples turtle-dovin' on Mason Dixon nights.
With three straight Showdown wins Martina McBride's first single in years is proving it has hit potential. Fans have come from every city and state to vote for "Reckless," the title-track from a new album set for release later this year. The biographical song topped Jake Owen's latest over the weekend, setting up a battle with a hot new country group.
