Big and Rich vs. Lee Brice – The Showdown
Big and Rich needed every last vote, literally, to top Kix Brooks's new song on the Showdown yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio. 'Party Like Cowboyz' won by just two votes, the smallest margin of victory ever. The duo will need those voters to ret…
Florida Georgia Line ‘Here’s to the Good Times’ Album Review
Step aside Sugarland.  Move over Montgomery Gentry.  There' s a new country duo in town named Florida Georgia Line.
Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly make up the talented duo who's debut song 'Cruise' cruised to #1.  The song is the lead track on their 'Here's To the Good Times' album, which is exactly w…
The Melting Pot Restaurant at Destiny USA
If you saw Polly Wogg's tale of our trip to Wonderworks, you know we made a trip to Destiny USA this past weekend.  We capped off the night with dinner at The Melting Pot.  What a great restaurant, and some of the best of service I have ever experienced at any restaurant. &n…
Toby Keith, ‘Hope on the Rocks’ – Album Review
Toby Keith's new album 'Hope on the Rocks' is a loud and sudsy collection of songs about beer, barrooms, heartbreak... and beer. Much like a Saturday night out at your favorite watering hole, it's rowdy and fun, but difficult to remember the next morning.
Lady Antebellum, ‘On This Winter’s Night’ – Album Review
Lady Antebellum are practically built for Christmas albums. There's a Captain and Tennille quality to their partnership that's made hip by youth and intriguing subject matter. The trio's take on standards like 'I'll Be Home for Christmas' and 'Silent Night' are timeless, in that they could really be…
Jason Aldean ‘Night Train’ Album Review
Jason Aldean's latest album 'Night Train' arrives in stores today and if you're an Aldean fan, you won't be disappointed.  Its full of music. 15 songs worth. The last time I had an album with that many songs, it was a 2 CD deluxe addition.
Jerrod Niemann, ‘Free the Music’ – Album Review
An album cover has never represented the music it protects better than Jerrod Niemann's 'Free the Music' artwork. The 'Shinin' on Me' singer's sophomore project is a busy collection of instruments and themes that take some effort to sort through and enjoy.
Jake Owen, ‘Endless Summer’ – Album Review
The very nature of the EP lends itself more to an artist's most faithful supporters than middling fans looking for an entry point into a new style or sound. Jake Owen's 'Endless Summer' EP allows his warm weather party with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw to last a little longer, bu…
Brad Paisley, ‘Southern Comfort Zone’ – Song Review
Brad Paisley's new single 'Southern Comfort Zone' is another socially important song, joining previous hits like 'Welcome to the Future' and 'This Is Country Music.' The singer's voice carries more weight in 2012 than it did in 2008 or 2004, and one senses that he's aware of his influence. This song…
Easton Corbin, ‘All Over the Road’ – Album Review
It's easy to heap praise on Easton Corbin's sophomore album for the same reasons fans and critics enjoyed his self-titled debut. 'All Over the Road' -- available in stores and at digital retailers now --is full of traditional country music that goes down like a spoonful of George…
Little Big Town, ‘Tornado’ – Album Review
Little Big Town assert themselves as a vocal quartet with real power and attitude on their new album 'Tornado.' The project -- their most consistent and satisfying yet -- sheds the milquetoast midtempo exercises that bogged down previous albums in favor of ones with true grit.
