The Swon Brothers are the first male contestants from 'The Voice' to try their hand at country radio with the release of their debut single, ‘Later On.’ To date, Danielle Bradbery and Cassadee Pope have been the show’s biggest successes, both releasing fairly mainstream pop-country songs. These Oklahoma boys show their rock roots early and often in this cut.
Eric Church’s new song ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’ seems to fill in the answer to a question proposed last month through a short series of cryptic videos. The first video promised: “One will rise , one will fall," and then another indicated the first wasn't meant as an attack on Taylor Swift. It's not clear why footage of Swift was used at all, although this new song does explore themes the 24-year-old is famous for singing about.
Chris Young's second single from the 'A.M.' album is similar to 'Aw Naw' in that it takes something he's done well across his first three studio albums and turns up the volume. 'Who I Am With You' is a big, soaring love ballad. It's a stark contrast to more intimate lovers from previous records.
Kellie Pickler's 'Santa Baby' is one of the best country Christmas songs of all time, and she tries that style once again in '(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man With the Bag,' her latest holiday recording. The versatile singer seems as comfortable weaving around her jazzy horn ensemble as she does the mandolins and acoustics that make up her best country cuts.
Stirring popular sayings of the day into a fluid melody is certainly one proven way to score a country hit. Thomas Rhett is hoping that formula works for 'Get Me Some of That,' the new single from his debut 'It Goes Like This' album.
Wait, only two verses? Kip Moore's new single 'Young Love' is a more traditional arrangement than his previous hits, but that doesn't mean it's generic. With this warm ballad, the 'Hey Pretty Girl' hitmaker proves his sharp storytelling is the rule, not the exception.
Billy Currington's new single 'We Are Tonight' tells a country roads, truck bed love story. That's not an original narrative in 2013, but his emphatic, soulful style allows the title track from his new album to become a refreshing, anthemic party song that will still sound good sober.
Most of the artists who make the 2013 CMA Awards Worst Dressed list would have benefitted from a quick look in the mirror before stepping out. "Disheveled" is how one could describe a few of these five stars. Suits that don't fit and gowns fit for a first trip to your future mother-in-law's house get noticed for all the wrong reasons. Please, don't try this at home.
There were a few risks, but most of the best dressed country stars at the 2013 CMA Awards leaned traditional on Wednesday night (Nov. 6). Despite the cold and damp forecast, leading ladies opted for sleeveless gowns, while the men went with dark suits and thin neckties (Although, you will find one bow tie on this list). Take a look before checking out the worst dressed from country music's biggest night.
The 2013 CMA Awards winners earn respect and recognition from their fans and country music peers, plus a really cool, really heavy glass trophy to put on their mantel, tour bus or coffee table. Tim McGraw won two CMAs before the 2013 broadcast even started on Nov. 6. His wins for Music Video and Musical Event of the Year were not surprising. 'Highway Don't Care' was also up for Single of the Year.
Almost everything Jason Aldean touches turns to gold, and his new single 'When She Says Baby' will likely be no different. Very few of the singer's releases since 'Hicktown' in 2005 have failed to sell at least 500,000 singles. He has his finger on the pulse of what mainstream country audiences are craving.
