Miranda Lambert's new album 'Platinum' will be available on June 3 and, with 16 tracks, there's a lot to know about the new studio project. Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes has managed to cram it all into one, 30-second-long, video cheat sheet.
The Eli Young Band set out to make their best album ever, and many fans will agree they succeeded. ’10,000 Towns’ is a very even project, with no letdowns or skip-ahead tracks and the best moments spread throughout.
The Band Perry’s ‘Chainsaw’ finds singer Kimberly Perry playing the role of unstable ex-girlfriend. Until now she’d mostly kept a lid on her crazy, only giving glimpses in songs like ‘Better Dig Two’ and ‘Done.’ There’s nothing stable about a girl swinging around a Stihl, however.
Like so many country stars, Billy Currington remembers expecting his first St. Jude visit to be depressing -- they are treating sick kids after all, he figured. If there's one lesson to remember from Taste of Country's two-day webathon, however, it's that that couldn't be further from the truth.
Jay, Joe Don and Gary of Rascal Flatts have stepped up to help the kids at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. During a two-day Taste of Country webathon, fans can bid on this autographed electric guitar, with all proceeds going to St. Jude.
The Swon Brothers were familiar with the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital long before competing on 'The Voice' or signing a country record deal. Zach and Colton Swon say their mom has been a longtime supporter of the children's hospital. Still, visiting there for the first time was much different than what they expected.
The sonic differences between ‘Riser’ and Dierks Bentley’s five previous studio albums (excluding ‘Up on the Ridge’) are subtle, but important. The Arizona-raised singer drops the rumbling, rambling, Bakersfield-inspired licks that made up many of his biggest hits and adds great lyrical depth.
Turning a personal tragedy into a hit record is tricky, and not just for all the normal reasons that it's difficult to make a song into a hit. Artists who write a great personal song may be hesitant to record it for months or years. Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes considers three powerful songs and three artists who dealt with the personal tragedies that inspired them in very different ways.
Cole Swindell doesn't just want you to listen to his album -- the singer wants you to live it, and he's offering a prize pack to one Taste of Country reader to ensure the 'Cole Swindell' experience is complete.
Fans of Justin Moore will really dig JJ Lawhorn and his new song 'Good Ol' Boys Like Us.' The two singers share a producer (Jeremy Stover discovered Lawhorn on YouTube) and -- at least on this song -- share a talent for revealing a country boy's soft side.
Kix Brooks made his acting debut earlier this year, and now fans have a chance to bring him home. Enter here to win one of 10 signed copies of both the DVD and CD soundtrack to ‘Ambush at Dark Canyon.’
