It’s hard not to wonder if ‘More Life’ was chosen as a single from Randy Travis‘ ‘Anniversary Collection‘ album to allow the singer a chance to respond to his recent brush with infamy. The introspective ballad finds Travis asking for forgiveness from those he has hurt. Is this another case of art birthed from real life?
Country newcomer Tyler Farr is having fun watching his debut single ‘Hot Mess‘ climb the country charts. The laid-back song about a girl that has it all together on the surface has found a place in the hearts of fans nationwide, and now the singer has released a new acoustic version of the song — with video. Watch Farr sing along in this clip, which is a Taste of Country exclusive premiere.
No matter what the outcome of ‘The Voice’ season finale on Tuesday night, Jermaine Paul has left a strong impression on the show’s coaches — and perhaps more importantly, television viewers at home. The longtime Alicia Keys backup singer made his case to be crowned champion with three superb performances, including a duet of ‘Soul Man’ with Blake Shelton.
Years before moving to Nashville, singer-songwriter Ayla Brown was a star on the Boston College women’s basketball team. They called her “Downtown” Ayla Brown for her impeccable ability to shoot the three-pointer. Now, she’s only able to play pick-up games between songwriting sessions and performances, and she’s regularly underestimated.
The arrival of Jessica Simpson’s baby has transcended the pop world. Even country stars are taking notice of the fact that Simpson has finally given birth. On Wednesday, Reba McEntire congratulated 31-year-old pop singer, who put out a country album in 2008 (though her twang career was short-lived).
The normally polite and proper country music community is beginning to take sides in the drama between Eric Church and Blake Shelton. Jimmy Wayne posted a long letter to fans at his Facebook page defending both Shelton and reality television shows like ‘The Voice’ and ‘American Idol.’

Country artist, actor, father, cologne pitchman … McGraw wears many hats, figuratively and literally. To celebrate his big day, we’ve put together a gallery of all pf the best hats the ‘Back When’ singer has put on his head over the last decade. He’s proven to be quite a man of fashion!
In addition to releasing her highly-anticipated studio album ‘Blown Away’ on Tuesday, Carrie Underwood announced a whopping 57 scheduled shows on her upcoming 2012 Blown Away Tour. Hunter Hayes will open dates across the country and Canada, with $1 from each ticket sold at North America shows benefiting Red Cross disaster relief.
Do you need evidence that Carrie Underwood is still just a small town girl from Checotah, Okla.? Check out her Twitter page. The singer was one of the last holdouts to join, but now says she appreciates being able to jostle with her fans and followers. She doesn’t stalk anyone — most of the 26 people she follows, she knows — and hasn’t become addicted to the social media site just yet. Her favorite part? Watching her number of followers get bigger and bigger… and bigger.
It’s a little early to call any album the best anything of 2012, but it’s no stretch to say Kip Moore‘s debut is the best by a new country artist this year, so far. ‘Up All Night’ introduces the gypsy from south Georgia as an inspiring storyteller, a talented lyricist and a gritty, well-traveled vocalist.
Lee Brice‘s new album ‘Hard 2 Love’ feels like a half thank you note, half apology to his soon-to-be wife and their son. Not all of the 13 cuts were written by the ‘A Woman Like You’ singer, but put into the context of what is going on in his life, many come across as extremely personal love letters.
There is no shortage of excuses to have a good time this weekend.
