Fans showed excitement for Craig Campbell‘s upcoming album by moving his new single ‘Outta My Head’ past Chris Cagle‘s ‘Let There Be Cowgirls’ to another day on the Taste of Country Showdown. The competition gets tougher today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio. The ‘Family Man’ singer will square off against one of the hottest new groups in country music.
Dixie Chick Emily Robison is resting today after giving birth to her fourth child, a girl, this morning. The singer delivered Violet Isabel Strayer at 3:01AM. A note at the trio’s page on Facebook says both baby and mom are doing well, and father Martin Strayer is happier than ever.
Brett Eldredge is a country newcomer with more talent than fame, but the latter may catch up to him after his new single ‘Don’t Ya’ finishes its radio run. The Illinois born-and-raised singer does all of the little things right on this tightly-produced cut from a long-promised debut album. We’re never blown away by his soulful voice, but we’re made aware of what he’s capable of by the end of a first or second listen.
You don’t need a late afternoon cup of coffee to get you through a long work day. Just turn up Lucas Hoge’s new song, ‘Do What Makes You Feel Good.’ The ready-made smile surfs along a funky Caribbean guitar riff, providing a three minute-long (and some change) vacation.
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.
Craig Campbell tries on a more contemporary sound with his new single ‘Outta My Head,’ a song about getting over a lover who won’t leave you alone even though she hasn’t called in quite some time. By leaning away from traditional, the singer aims to please more fans than his last two singles — the edgy ‘Fish’ and a middle finger to bill collectors called ‘When I Get It’ — but the result is a nondescript, mid-tempo country song that could have been recorded by anyone at any time.
Canadian country trio High Valley put a scare into Alan Jackson fans yesterday, but their song ‘Love You for a Long Time’ fell just short, losing to ‘You Go Your Way’ by 10 percentage points. Phone voting on Taste of Country Nights radio helped put the superstar into the driver’s seat once again. Today, he’ll face another feisty newcomer in Jason Cassidy.
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. That’s two months to find the perfect dress, the perfect shoes or the perfect jacket. We’ve found the most adventurous outfits from previous CMA Awards and paired them side by side, just begging for your opinion. You get to play country music fashion police with your vote!
Fans responded passionately to Alan Jackson‘s new single, ‘You Go Your Way,’ yesterday and last night in the Taste of Country Nights Showdown. The song easily ousted ‘Ex-Old Man’ by Kristen Kelly, meaning the country legend will move on to face a new challenger. Today, that’s another act new to American country music fans.
Happy birthday to Shania Twain today, August 28! The singer has offered cutting-edge country music and fashion in the 18 years since releasing ‘The Woman With Me’ in 1995. While this wasn’t her debut album, its success (over 12 million copies sold in the U.S. alone) changed the landscape of country music forever.
Thomas Rhett joined a select group of artists with songs in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame on Monday when ‘Beer With Jesus’ became a five-time winner. The song will now be retired, meaning today’s Showdown will feature two new artists. Remember, you can also vote tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio, our syndicated radio show available on air and online.
Darius Rucker takes a simple story of two lovers who defy odds and skeptics and places it gently on a cloud in the stratosphere — a place few others can reach. ‘True Believers’ begins as a mild and unremarkable pop-country song before clever production and Rucker’s unforgettable voice find one soaring in the euphoria.
