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.
One day after celebrating her 30th birthday, LeAnn Rimes announced she will be taking 30 days off to “cope with anxiety and stress” in an in-patient treatment facility. The singer voluntarily entered the facility on Wednesday (August 28) with full support from her husband, actor Eddie Cibrian.
Canadian country trio High Valley put a scare into Alan Jackson fans yesterday, but their song ‘Love You for a Long Time’ fell just short, losing to ‘You Go Your Way’ by 10 percentage points. Phone voting on Taste of Country Nights radio helped put the superstar into the driver’s seat once again. Today, he’ll face another feisty newcomer in Jason Cassidy.
Trace Adkins performed what at least one news outlet called the GOP theme song after Ann Romney’s speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. on Tuesday night. ‘Tough People Do’ is a new song that reminds listeners that while times might be tough, so are we.
Fans responded passionately to Alan Jackson‘s new single, ‘You Go Your Way,’ yesterday and last night in the Taste of Country Nights Showdown. The song easily ousted ‘Ex-Old Man’ by Kristen Kelly, meaning the country legend will move on to face a new challenger. Today, that’s another act new to American country music fans.
Keith Urban has accepted an offer from Fox producer’s to judge ‘American Idol‘ next season, less than one day after being named the frontrunner for an open seat on the panel. The Country Vibe reports that Urban has agreed to take the job, making him the second country superstar on a major network reality show.
Instead of writing new songs for his next album, Blake Shelton has taken to rewriting hits from other country music stars. Kenny Chesney‘s ‘Come Over’ and Tim McGraw‘s ‘Live Like You Were Dying’ were his two victims choices in the past 24 hours.
Billy Ray Cyrus turns 51 years old today (August 25)! The famous country singer and father to Miley Cyrus was as hot as Garth Brooks early in his career, and in the 20 years since releasing ‘Achy Breaky Heart,’ he has notched seven Top 10 hits. What is your favorite Billy Ray Cyrus song?
