Billy Currington is having a moment right now — he’s scored seven consecutive number one singles, and his latest hit, ‘Love Done Gone,’ is well on its way to making it eight. Clearly, people can’t get enough of hearing him on the radio.
After letting personal problems derail his career for most of the aughts, Ty Herndon made a triumphant return with 2007′s ‘Right About Now,’ and he’s kept going strong since.
Herndon’s comeback, which continued with 2010′s ‘Journey On,’ should only gain momentum in the coming months because his plans include the completion of his seventh studio album, as well as another collection of Christmas favorites.
It’s been a few years since Craig Morgan fans were treated to a new album, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been busy — in fact, in between working on his next record, he’s been hard at work raising money for charity.
Who’s the hottest new country act of the year? With one single to their name, a debut album still two weeks away from store shelves, and Miranda Lambert in the lineup, the answer just might be Pistol Annies.
The red-hot trio — consisting of Lambert, Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe — recently sat down with Taste of Country to dish a little about their first album, ‘Hell on Heels,’ and discuss the balance between solo songwriting and life as a group.
Between the two of them, the husband-and-wife duo Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have sold over 80 million albums and notched almost 30 number one singles on the country charts. What does that kind of success buy you?
With his first two albums, 2006′s ‘Sinners Like Me’ and 2009′s ‘Carolina,’ Eric Church enjoyed steadily, albeit modestly, increasing success — so you can imagine that a few industry eyebrows were raised when his latest release, ‘Chief,’ debuted at number one.
To celebrate Church’s first chart-topper, Billboard devoted a recent feature to analyzing his sales spike — and interviewing industry insiders who shared their theories about how it happened.
By the time she was 14, LeAnn Rimes had already recorded four albums — and the fourth, 1996′s ‘Blue,’ sold more than six million copies in the United States alone.
Rimes has come a long way since those early days — she’s now a 28-year-old married woman with 15 studio albums under her belt. And for her latest studio set, ‘Lady and Gentlemen,’ she took a brand new approach.
U2 leads the list, with a nearly $175 million gross, with the top five rounded out by Roger Waters ($114 million), Bon Jovi ($107 million), Lady Gaga ($72 million), and Usher ($70 million). And the year’s biggest country tours? Kenny Chesney (No. 9, $25 million) and the George Strait/Reba pairing (number 15, $17.5 million).
Ahoy, country fans! If you’ve got some vacation time on the calendar, $1,000 to burn, and a hankering for the high seas, Blake Shelton is offering you the chance to be part of something special.
Next October, Shelton — along with other artists who have yet to be announced — will set sail on the Norwegian Jewel for a seven-day sojourn. During the cruise, passengers will be treated to the usual amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, and port stops in places like San Juan, Tortola, and Nassau, along with unique access to country music royalty.
