Betsy Kingston is an artist to keep a close eye on. The Athens, Georgia born-and-raised songstress and her band the Crowns have covered the country quickly since forming one year ago. Playing 70 shows across America in support of the new ‘Blue Laws’ album is called paying one’s dues. From the sound of some songs on the new disc, Kingston has clearly anted up.
Despite being outnumbered 3-to-1, Craig Campbell had no trouble knocking off Gloriana during yesterday’s Showdown. His new song ‘Outta My Head’ is proving to be a hit with fans. He’s called upon them to support the first single from his upcoming album and they’ve responded in large numbers. That means more airplay for Campbell tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio as he takes on a new challenger.
Kellie Pickler has shaved her head. In a video that aired on ‘Good Morning America’ this morning, Pickler walked viewers and fans through the story of her friend Summer Holt Miller — who is currently fighting breast cancer — before revealing footage captured in these photos of both women with their beautiful locks buzzed.
Dixie Chick Emily Robison is resting today after giving birth to her fourth child, a girl, this morning. The singer delivered Violet Isabel Strayer at 3:01AM. A note at the trio’s page on Facebook says both baby and mom are doing well, and father Martin Strayer is happier than ever.
Fans showed excitement for Craig Campbell‘s upcoming album by moving his new single ‘Outta My Head’ past Chris Cagle‘s ‘Let There Be Cowgirls’ to another day on the Taste of Country Showdown. The competition gets tougher today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio. The ‘Family Man’ singer will square off against one of the hottest new groups in country music.
The new single from Kix Brooks‘ first solo album since 1989 is a tribute to his wife, Barbara. In a video exclusive to Taste of Country, the singer explains the song, which is featured on ‘New to This Town,’ which will be released next Tuesday (Sept. 11). Fans can listen to the entire album right now at Amazon.
Alan Jackson has become the latest artist to have a song inducted into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame. By topping Darius Rucker‘s ‘True Believers’ on Monday, ‘You Go Your Way’ is retired, meaning two new songs square off today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights, a nationally syndicated radio show hosted by Jeremy Robinson.
It was an exciting week of country news, with some stories that left you feeling sympathetic (Randy Travis, LeAnn Rimes) and more that filled the air with excitement. Taylor Swift‘s new video and Toby Keith‘s new album are just two of the many excuses one had this week for shouting joy while co-workers drummed away quietly at their keyboards.
Trace Adkins says he wasn’t trying to make a political statement when he performed his new song, ‘Tough People Do,’ at the Republican National Convention earlier this week. The singer says the tube — referred to as a red, white and blue anthem of strength and courage at his website — is meant to remind Americans that the solution to fix this country is within all of us, regardless of political affiliation.
