Luke Bryan is on a major roll. The ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ singer has taken out his four previous competitors in the Showdown, day after day, which means he’s one stop away from being retired into the Hall of Fame, should he get five straight wins. To complete the mission, he’ll have to take out Edens Edge and their new single ‘Too Good to Be True’ today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio.
Kelleigh Bannen plowed past songs from the Lost Trailers and D. Vincent Williams on Taste of Country Nights radio this week with her debut single ‘Sorry on the Rocks.’ Will her wins be enough to help her take on big-leaguer Luke Bryan in the Showdown?
A baby girl has officially joined Eli Young Band‘s brood. Frontman Mike Eli and his wife, Kacey, welcomed Kline Olivia Diaz on Monday (July 30) in Dallas. The little girl, who is the first child for the couple, weighed in at 6 lbs. and 15 oz. She was expected to arrive in August.
Lauren Alaina has done it again. Though her name has only been ‘household’ for a year, the 17-year-old country starlet has proven that she’s worth a second listen. Now that she’s beaten both Jason Aldean and Trace Adkins in the Showdown, she’s looking for a third. Will she get another spin on Taste of Country Nights radio?
Country music fans like Eric Church for more than just his music. While it’s admirable that in a world of processed, overdone soun the 35-year-old singer-songwriter has built a career from the ground up, it’s really his raw, rebellious side that many are drawn to. As we learned earlier this year, Church has no qualms about speaking his mind — even when it gets him in trouble. But that’s far from a bad thing.
Congratulations are in order for Ronnie Dunn and his family — the ‘Cost of Livin” singer became a grandfather for the first time on Sunday (Feb. 26). Dunn found the news especially exciting, as his new grandson was lucky enough to be born on Johnny Cash‘s birthday.
The 2012 Grammy Awards, like every year prior, were held to pay tribute to accredited artists of all genres at what is considered music’s biggest night. Country music wasn’t left out in the cold, of course, and many big names came out to Los Angeles on Feb. 12 to represent with big belt buckles, big hair and big voices.
Blake Shelton got the full package on Thursday night’s episode of ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.’ Not only did he perform his new single ‘Drink on It’ for the first time ever on television, but he got a chance to sit in as a guest on the show, making himself comfy in the gold chairs next to the famous desk as he dished on the upcoming Super Bowl, how married life is going and what romantic love story flick he hates to admit he watched.
Apparently, Taylor Swift won’t be taking part in ‘Les Miserables’ after all. Though the 22-year-old pop-country hitmaker was spotted in London recently, presumably working out the kinks of her role as Eponine, she has since been pulled from the ‘Les Miserables’ cast list.
