Luke Bryan is out. The ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ singer toppled all five competitors put in front of him, thanks to votes from fans online and via Taste of Country Nights radio. One by one, Bryan knocked down his fellow country artists, walking straight into Showdown Hall of Fame without even breaking a sweat. That means that this Friday battle will start with two fresh faces in Eli Young Band and Jon Pardi, both armed with new singles about achy minutes with, or without, that special someone.
A new name in radio begins with a familiar voice on Monday night, July 2. Taste of Country Nights will air nightly from 7PM to midnight on 34 country stations nationwide Monday through Friday.

Natural, selecting the best of the best and naming winners is a daunting task.
Kellie Pickler releases her third studio album today (Jan. 24) and is sharing the stories behind each of the 11 tracks exclusively with Taste of Country. ’100 Proof’ plays almost like an autobiography of Pickler.

The 2011 CMA Awards winners had plenty to celebrate as they accepted their honors on the year’s biggest night in country music.
