ToC Encore: Country Music Can’t Win at the Super Bowl

Why isn't a country superstar performing during halftime of the Super Bowl? It's a fair question, and one country fans have asked every year since Shania Twain took the stage in 2003. Surely there are stars big enough to draw the nation's interest, right? Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes argues that fans of Nashville's biggest names should actually be grateful for this missed opportunity.

Florida Georgia Line (Feat. Luke Bryan), ‘This Is How We Roll’ [Listen]

Florida Georgia Line stick to familiar themes, but deliver their most original lyric yet on ‘This Is How We Roll,’ a collaboration with Luke Bryan. The rhymes that flow from Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley’s lips are like sugar from a shaker. An especially clever second verse will be what everyone is talking about.

The Wild Feathers, ‘Got It Wrong’ [Listen]

Like loose change when you’re desperate for money for a pack of cigarettes, the Wild Feathers are a pleasant surprise found between the folds of the country and rock genres. Their new song ‘Got It Wrong’ is dirtier than music produced by the slick Nashville machine, but still familiar for those looking for just a little respite from the same old, same old.

ToC Encore: Why Country Women Will Win Big at the Grammys

Sorry, Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw. The big winners at the 2014 Grammys are going to be women. This may not bother the 'Doin' What She Likes' singer, as his wife Miranda Lambert scored multiple nominations and is always a favorite to take home the hardware.

ToC Encore: Trace Adkins’ Rehab Trip Spotlights Country Music’s Drinking Problem

Earlier this week, Trace Adkins announced a second stint in an alcohol rehabilitation facility. He fell off the wagon during a cruise he was set to headline.
