Evan Paul is the host of Taste of Country Nights, a syndicated radio show heard on over 100 country radio stations nationwide. Producer Amber co-hosts the show with him every night from 7PM to midnight. Together they play the best new country music and interview today's top stars, like Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, Maren Morris + more! 

The announcement that county singer Lauren Alaina is going to be on the next season of Dancing With the Stars got us pretty excited here at Taste of Country Nights! We think she has the perfect attitude to succeed on that show, but we also got to thinking, what if there was a country artist ONLY version of Dancing With the Stars?

Who would be the best contestant? My top picks would be: Maren MorrisBlake SheltonCarrie UnderwoodKane Brown.


Who is your pick?

Good Morning America revealed the news of the new DWTS cast on Wednesday (Aug. 21). In addition to Alaina the other stars will be Mary Wilson (of the Supremes), Ally Brooke (of Fifth Harmony), Bachelorette Hannah Brown, Queer Eye star Karamo Brown, former NBA player Lamar Odom, actor James Van Der Beek, model Christie Brinkley, former NFL linebacker Ray Lewis, actress Kate Flannery, comedian Kel Mitchel and Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary.
