Kip Moore‘s first gold single almost never happened. The singer — whose debut album ‘Up All Night’ is in stores April 24 — explains that he and songwriter Dan Couch were finished writing for the day, but pulled out the guitars again to write ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck.’ Hear him tell the whole entertaining story in the video below, which is brought to you exclusively by Taste of Country.
Newcomer Greg Bates makes it look much too easy in his debut song ‘Did It for the Girl.’ The tune is country music, stripped of pomp and circumstance. His sweet molasses voice doesn’t hide behind any trumped up studio tricks or vocal effects. While the sound isn’t quite the same, his style is similar to the man he sings about during the second verse.
One of the most recognizable faces in television history has died. Dick Clark, whose credits include ‘American Bandstand,’ ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ and executive producer lines on shows like the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, passed away on Wednesday morning at the age of 82.
Any country artist that can invent a sound never before heard on country radio deserves a round of applause. In the age of repetition and imitation, Little Big Town releases ‘Pontoon,’ a song that has no siblings.
A new wife, a new baby, a new record label … add it all up and you’ll find a new Randy Houser on his debut single for Stoney Creek Records. ‘How Country Feels’ drops the Delta Blues-soaked guitar riffs in favor of a sound more palatable to the fan of middle-of-the-road country music.
Over the last decade, once reliable country superstars like Clint Black, Travis Tritt and Shania Twain have all but vanished. Sure, they may pop up on reality television or record an occasional duet, but with each passing year, fans are left hungry for new music from these former icons.
Lee Brice is releasing a new song to iTunes each week before the April 24 release of his new album ‘Hard 2 Love.’ In addition to the Top 5 single ‘A Woman Like You,’ a doleful ballad called ‘I Drive Your Truck’ is now available for purchase.
What a baby face Jason Aldean had when he debuted with ‘Hicktown’ in 2005! Other than the clean-shaven cheeks and a few less necklaces, not much has changed in the Georgia born country singer’s look. His style is similar, and he still sports the same earrings seven years later. It’s a look that works for Aldean, so why change it? Holding onto a little more stubble is probably a good move. It gives his face a farm-worn look.
Seventeen-year-old spitfire RaeLynn gave viewers another reason to watch ‘The Voice‘ with one eye following her every move. After learning she was safe during Tuesday night’s results show, the Team Blake member mouthed the words ‘Oh s–t!’ Fortunately, it wasn’t picked up by NBC’s microphones.
The men of Rascal Flatts have talked about how they took a step back and reassessed everything they were before returning to the studio to record ‘Changed’ in 2011. The result is a project that shows wholesale changes weren’t necessary, but ‘Tweaked’ would have made a lousy album title.
Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw didn’t need help selling tickets for the Brothers of the Sun Tour, but whatever seats were still available may have just been scooped up by fans anxious to see the two country superstars sing ‘Feel Like a Rock Star’ together this summer. The rest of America will have to settle for the radio edit, which is vintage Kenny Chesney.
