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?
Sure, Kelleigh Bannen is a newcomer, but she’s proven that she’s ready to make an impact on country music. ‘Sorry on the Rocks,’ the new single from the determined EMI Nashville signee, made no apologies as it took down the Lost Trailers in yesterday’s Taste of Country Showdown. Today and tonight, Bannen and her song will attempt victory against D. Vincent Williams here and on Taste of Country Nights radio.
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 fans who were excited to watch Luke Bryan sing the National Anthem at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night were left feeling confused by the end of his rendition. Without fail, the ‘Drunk on You’ singer hit all the notes and impressed baseball fans inside Kauffman Stadium — but those watching closely at home noticed that the singer appeared to be reading something, like the lyrics to the song, from his palm as he sang.
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.
On Sunday night, Taylor Swift was officially crowned with one of the most prestigious nods given at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards: Woman of the Year. Following a strong introduction by Kris Kristofferson — who called her “one of the most successful artists in country music” — Swift got a multi-minute reel recapping all of the heights she’s reached in her relatively short career.

Today was a sad day for the music world. One country music inspiration and legendary banjo player passed at the age of 75. Fans also learned of the death of the Queen of Disco, Donna Summer. And while Summer’s death was less directly related to the country music world, it was no less a reason to mourn — especially for Dolly Parton. Get those stories and more in today’s Taste of Country Daily Roundup.
Carrie Underwood visited an elementary school to sing with the chorus this week, but in the end, it was the fifth-graders at PS22 that ended up leaving her ‘Blown Away’ (pun very much intended). Also in Taste of Country’s Daily Roundup is Brad Paisley‘s appearance on ‘South Park’ — and even if you’re not a fan of the often crude cartoon, this is one episode you will want to watch.
