Julie Roberts has one of the more captivating country voices of the last 10 years. At times on her new album 'Good Wine and Bad Decisions,' she pulls you in like a blue-eyed, blonde-haired Venus flytrap. The painful songs are every bit as satisfying as the more sensual moments.
Tyler Farr finds love with his new single 'Whiskey in My Water.' It's the fourth from the 'Redneck Crazy' album, a collection that just hit stores last month. While he takes chances elsewhere on the project, this ballad plays it safe with a familiar storyline.
As 2013 comes to a close, the question has to be asked: Who in country music had the best year? Taste of Country has compiled a list of 16 candidates, split them into two groups and thrown open the voting booths. Now, it's up to you to decide: Who was the hottest country star of 2013?
Five former or current 'American Idol' stars and three former or current singers on NBC's 'The Voice' made last week's Top 10 video countdown. With over 30 videos to choose from, fans of reality stars have worked hardest to make sure their favorites make the grade. Last week also found a new video at No. 1, after four straight weeks of dominance by one country newcomer. Can Danielle Bradbery hold on for a second straight week?
Chase Rice's new EP comes dripping with testosterone. The first six songs (of seven if you purchase a physical copy) are loud, rowdy party anthems that feature the star as the next to merge hip-hop and country music. Colt Ford makes a guest appearance on one particularly rowdy cut called 'Party Up.'
Willie Nelson's scratchy tenor and familiar guitar are the two constants on his new album of duets called 'To All the Girls.' The project is an enormous collection of female talent -- mostly country, but some not, most well-known, but a few still relatively unheard of. There's a pleasing variety, yet none steer too far from what Nelson has released in the last half-decade.
George Strait's new single 'I Got a Car' is another easy love story, just as he's done dozens of times before. It's a circle-of-life adventure revolving around a car, presumably the same car in each verse. Expect nothing out of the ordinary from this track from the 'Love Is Everything' album.
Cassadee Pope's debut album 'Frame by Frame' is a young woman's record. She refers to "boys" and "girls" and sings of things like her parents' divorce and falling in love in the front seat of an old car. The production straddles both pop and country, using phasers and Gwen Stefani-inspired stomps alongside fiddle and acoustic guitar. It's a mix that will be unique on country radio.
Justin Moore's big country voice shines during the final choruses of 'Lettin' the Night Roll,' the second single from 'Off the Beaten Path.' His loyal fans will recognize the performance, and fans of country music will recognize the story he tells.
'Crickets' is a fine way to describe Joe Nichols' new album. The singer aims for a relax-on-the-riverbank vibe with many of the mid-tempo cuts on this project. The album begins and ends with crickets ( literally), and in between it offers a fairly level ride.
