The new single from Kix Brooks‘ first solo album since 1989 is a tribute to his wife, Barbara. In a video exclusive to Taste of Country, the singer explains the song, which is featured on ‘New to This Town,’ which will be released next Tuesday (Sept. 11). Fans can listen to the entire album right now at Amazon.
Alan Jackson has become the latest artist to have a song inducted into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame. By topping Darius Rucker‘s ‘True Believers’ on Monday, ‘You Go Your Way’ is retired, meaning two new songs square off today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights, a nationally syndicated radio show hosted by Jeremy Robinson.
Alan Jackson has cruised through four straight Showdowns, but to get to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame, he’s going to have to top another country superstar in Darius Rucker. The legend’s new song ‘You Go Your Way’ is hot right now, with online and phone call votes leaning heavily his way. But Rucker might be hotter.
High Valley‘s tight harmonies and bluegrass influenced pop-country sound will be new to American audiences, but the sibling trio proves that their success in Canada wasn’t just a fluke. ‘Love You for a Long Time,’ the debut single on Eaglemont Entertainment, is a professional recording one usually doesn’t find from a baby act. This group is clearly a seasoned — but still exciting — voice to keep an eye on.
The No. 1 song on the Taste of County Top 40 for September 2012 is one that was recently named the song of the summer by readers. It’s been one of the top sellers in the genre since it was released as a single last spring, and it finally topped out at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. There was no question which song was worthy this month. The rest of the group were fighting for No. 2.
Dustin Lynch may have moved to Nashville to chase his dreams, but home is still where his heart is. The 27-year-old says he learned to write at the famous Bluebird Cafe, but learned to dream along the back roads and open country of Tullahoma, Tenn.
Earlier this month, we released a survey intended to gauge which country star — or stars — were having the best summer. You were allowed to vote on the top song, top album and top tour of the summer, in addition to seven other categories that described the vacation months from your perspective. The results are in, and the big winner is overwhelmingly Kenny Chesney.
Taste of Country Nights host Jeremy Robinson is from Texas, so you’d think he’d have known last night’s Lyrical Pursuit song. The winning contestant thought so too, and wasn’t afraid to call him out on a nationally syndicated radio show.
Alan Jackson fans stepped up in a big way on Thursday, pushing the country music legend’s new single to another day on the Showdown. ‘You Go Your Way’ ousted newcomer Jason Cassidy, although it was close until the phone voting from Taste of Country Nights radio began. That makes three in a row for Jackson.
Trace Adkins says he wasn’t trying to make a political statement when he performed his new song, ‘Tough People Do,’ at the Republican National Convention earlier this week. The singer says the tube — referred to as a red, white and blue anthem of strength and courage at his website — is meant to remind Americans that the solution to fix this country is within all of us, regardless of political affiliation.
Next Wednesday (Sept. 5), the nominees for the 2012 CMA Awards will be announced. That leaves stars less than two months to plan for the Nov. 3 broadcast.
