It’s a country superstar Showdown today. Three-time champion Blake Shelton will face Carrie Underwood, after ‘Over’ made easy work of Rodney Atkins‘ ‘Just Wanna Rock N’ Roll’ on Wednesday. Shelton’s captivating ballad will need to get past the title track from Underwood’s new ‘Blown Away’ album to move one step away from Showdown Hall of Fame enshrinement. A winner will be decided after 10PM CT on Taste of Country Nights radio.
Blake Shelton has made it two in a row! Last night, his new hit ‘Over’ topped Jerrod Niemann‘s ‘Shinin’ on Me’ to win the Taste of Country Showdown a second time. The emotional ballad was helped by online voting, but also by listeners who caught both songs on the new Taste of Country Nights radio show. Tonight, Shelton’s potential seventh straight No. 1 hit will have to top one of the feel-good songs of the summer.
Blake Shelton‘s new hit ‘Over’ won the inaugural Showdown on Taste of Country Nights last night, besting ‘The Wind’ by Zac Brown Band by a 2-to-1 margin. This means the song will face another country hit in the quest to go five-for-five and be retired to the Showdown Hall of Fame. Tonight, the emotional ballad from the ‘Red River Blue’ album will face-off against ‘Shinin’ on Me,’ the lead single from Jerrod Niemann‘s upcoming album.

Eric Church has chosen what could one day be his encore song as the fourth single from ‘Chief.’ ‘Creepin” isn’t the best song on the album — it may not even be in the Top 3. However, it’s the project’s loudest, most rock and roll moment — one that would send fans home in a dizzying fit of distorted euphoria.
A footnote to November 2011 articles pertaining to Tim McGraw‘s supposed victory in a lawsuit against Curb Records indicated that while the singer was free to sign another recording contract, proceedings would continue in July 2012 to determine if the singer owed his former label damages. According to a press release on behalf of Curb, a Nashville court ruled on the matter today (June 28), deciding McGraw still owes his former label an album.
When Wynonna Juddmarried Cactus Moser this month, her famous mother and sister weren’t in attendance. The singer now explains that was intentional. In an interview with Us Weekly, Judd admits her relationship with Naomi and Ashley Judd is strained, and that their presence would have made her nervous.
It has seemed like Jennifer Nettles has been extra bubbly during her first season of ‘Duets’ on ABC. The Sugarland singer and reality television judge is close to five months pregnant! The band’s manager broke the news to People on Monday morning.
Gretchen Wilson may not be one of country music’s top female vocalists any longer. No, she’s transcended the genre, in a way Alison Krauss did her’s years ago. Except Wilson’s not getting any of the recognition, until maybe now. ‘One Good Friend’ is a brilliant ballad about the meaning of friendship. However it’s perhaps too professional to fit between the stars on modern country radio, a problem Krauss and more recently Vince Gill know very well.
