It’s a busy month for new country music releases in September 2012, with no less than 10 albums from major country music stars hitting the shelves. While few are using the day after Labor Day to release new music, Sept. 11 is literally packed with new music. Little Big Town, Kix Brooks and Aaron Lewis are just three of the artists with new albums out that day.
Yesterday’s battle of Texas country quartets left only one as champion. ‘No Better Than This’ is the current king, meaning the uptempo new song from JB and the Moonshine Band will face a new challenger today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio. Remember, you can vote every hour online, as well as on the phone after 7PM by calling the Taste of Country Nights studio at (888) 678-9995.
What does Miranda Lambert do between shows? She visits Alaska to go fishing. A Taste of Country reader sent us these pictures of the ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ singer reeling ‘em in by the dozens when she was on a mini-vacation earlier this month, sans husband Blake Shelton. The break came during a trip to the Last Frontier for an August 2 show in Anchorage.
Fans of Eli Young Band pulled off one of the greatest Showdown upsets of all time on Tuesday. The group’s new single ‘Say Goodnight’ topped Taylor Swift‘s brand new single from her upcoming ‘Red’ album, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’ That makes it three in a row for the Texas foursome’s love ballad. Two more and it will be retired to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.
Last night, the Eli Young Band and newcomer Chelsea Bain traded blows until the final minutes of the Showdown on Taste of Country Nights radio. Each artist rallied their fans to support their new song, but in the end, the new ballad from the Texas foursome notched just a few more votes than Bain’s ‘What if I.’
Men and women will be divided on ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ Taylor Swift‘s new single. On one (woman’s) hand, it’s an empowering breakup song that slams the door on every no-good loser who’s come crawling back with apologies and “I love yous” (and maybe flowers or a sack of White Castle hamburgers) at all hours of the night. From the male perspective: “Get over it.”
It’s been one year since the rigging above Sugarland’s stage toppled onto excited fans waiting for the band to begin their show at the Indiana State Fair. Seven were killed and dozens were injured in the tragic accident. Tonight (August 13), they’ll be remembered during a pause in the activities at the 2012 Indiana State Fair.
Eli Young Band may not be far removed from their search for country stardom, but their fans took no pity on newcomer Jon Pardi. The Texas group’s new song ‘Say Goodnight’ topped ‘Missin” You Crazy’ to earn another spin on Taste of Country Nights radio and more votes from fans on Taste of Country.
Today’s Showdown is a battle between friends. Luke Bryan and Colt Ford will have to put their personal relationship aside to win the song battle that culminates each night on Taste of Country Nights radio. ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ topped ‘One More Sad Song’ from Randy Rogers Band on Tuesday, making Bryan’s newest single a three-time champion.
The longest standing member of the Marshall Tucker Band died on Saturday. Stuart Swanlund, guitarist for the group since 1985, passed away in his sleep. He had been taking a hiatus from the band to deal with health issues.
Luke Bryan fans are up for a challenge. For the second straight day, they made ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ the Showdown champion. Yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights, the fourth single from ‘Tailgates and Tanlines’ topped Casey James‘ new single ‘Cryin’ on a Suitcase.’ The competition only gets stiffer as the new hit moves toward Showdown immortality.
