Eric Palsay's self-titled debut album is in stores now, and he's celebrating by turning over the strings to a new guitar. Enter here for your chance to win this autographed acoustic from the 'Friday Night' hitmaker.
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.
Country music shined at the 2014 Grammys, with nine of Nashville's top singers taking the stage to sing and play guitar. Collaborations and solo performances from artists like Keith Urban, Blake Shelton and Hunter Hayes were among the night's best, but what was the best moment?
Jennifer Nettles' new solo album is a round peg too big for country music’s square hole. Actually, ‘That Girl’ is sort of a zig-zaggy shaped object that doesn’t fit neatly within any genre’s stingy requirements. Jazz, blues, country, big band, Broadway, classic rock … Nettles dabbles.
Tim McGraw marries traditional country stylings to contemporary innovations in his new single ‘Lookin’ for That Girl.’ The scream of a pedal steel keeps the track safely on the country side of the radio, while his use of auto-tune points forward toward what could be the genre’s future.
There’s a timeless quality to Rascal Flatts’ love songs, like their latest ‘Rewind.’ It’s a song that could appear on any of the group’s eight previous studio albums. Gary, Jay and Joe Don have a signature sound, and they’ve remained loyal to it for almost 15 years.
2013 was a really good year for country music videos, with more than one turning into mini-movies. The plot was thick during Carrie Underwood’s Two Black Cadillacs’ and Tim McGraw’s ‘Highway Don’t Care,’ two of the 10 nominees in the Best Video category. Take a look at all nominees and decide who should win this Taste of Country award.
There's an art to giving a great interview, and not every country star has mastered it. In fact, most fall somewhere between guarded and nervous when they pick up the phone or agree to talk about their lives and music face-to-face. That holds a singer back, but it's an obstacle that can be overcome, as Brantley Gilbert has proven.
