Love and Theft‘s new album hits stores on Tuesday and features their Top 10 hit ‘Angel Eyes,’ as well as a new song called ‘Amen.’ The slow and sexy, pop/R&B influenced country track might be the cut fans of the band’s are howling about after picking up the disc or downloading it from iTunes. You can hear it below in this Taste of Country exclusive premiere.
Yesterday’s Showdown was the most voted on ever! Fans of Brantley Gilbert and Eric Church displayed their loyalty, casting votes until the last seconds of the contest on Taste of Country Nights radio. In the end, Gilbert’s ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ won with just over 60 percent of the vote, meaning the soon-to-be hit song will take on another challenger. Today, it’s a good friend of the ‘Halfway to Heaven’ famer.
Two of country music’s outlaws square off on today’s Taste of Country Showdown. The battle will end with an assault of phone call voting on Taste of Country Nights radio on Thursday night. You can vote now for either returning champion Eric Church and his song ‘Creepin’,’ or challenger Brantley Gilbert‘s new single ‘Kick It in the Sticks.’
There is a new Showdown champion! After almost record voting yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio, Eric Church‘s new single ‘Creepin” kinged Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ by an almost two-to-one margin. The fourth single from Church’s ‘Chief’ album seems poised to be another big song for the North Carolina-born country star. It could even become his third straight No. 1 hit.
After thousands of votes, Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ clipped Kip Moore‘s ‘Beer Money’ by fewer than 40 votes on Monday. A last second push by McGraw fans on Taste of Country Nights radio gave the country-rocker an edge that held up. That makes three in a row for the lead single from McGraw’s new album. Two more and the track will be retired to the Showdown Hall of Fame.
It’s difficult to overstate how important ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ is to Brantley Gilbert‘s career and the direction of country music. It’s a line drawn in the red Georgia clay — after two releases that held back — to allow those not previously familiar with the Jefferson-born singer to get acquainted with his pacing and style. This is his ‘Free Bird,’ in that it’s the first song fans and critics will mention in association with this talented artist.
For 11 seasons, ‘American Idol’ has ignored country music when it comes to the judges panel. But with Steven Tyler announcing his ‘Idol’ departure on Thursday, it’s time to make things right. Stars like Blake Shelton and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland have proven that Nashville has artists capable of shining on a nationally-televised stage. Which country artist do you think would be the perfect fit to replace Tyler on ‘American Idol?’
Easton Corbin fans gave country superstar Tim McGraw a fight on last night’s Showdown, but ‘Lovin’ You Is Fun’ came up a few votes short, meaning ‘Truck Yeah’ is the new champion. Tonight, McGraw’s rock-country hit from his upcoming album will face off against another song that will bring a wide grin to the countriest of country boys. Vote for either ‘Truck Yeah’ or Craig Morgan‘s ‘Corn Star’ here, and then listen to the battle tonight at 10PM on Taste of Country Nights.
Country newcomers Parmalee come from the North Carolina rock scene, and it shows on ‘Musta Had a Good Time,’ their debut single on Stoney Creek Records. The loud and rowdy track relies on a screaming guitar lick and rock n’ roll riffs, which stand out like Marilyn Manson would at a Scotty McCreery show.
