Eight new artists are competing for New Artist of the Year honors at the 2014 Taste of Country Awards. Three came from reality television, one came from scripted television, three made it the old-fashioned way and one came from out of nowhere to become one of the hottest concert tickets in country music. Who do you think should win the New Artist of the Year award?
There’s a timeless quality to Rascal Flatts’ love songs, like their latest ‘Rewind.’ It’s a song that could appear on any of the group’s eight previous studio albums. Gary, Jay and Joe Don have a signature sound, and they’ve remained loyal to it for almost 15 years.
2013 was a really good year for country music videos, with more than one turning into mini-movies. The plot was thick during Carrie Underwood’s Two Black Cadillacs’ and Tim McGraw’s ‘Highway Don’t Care,’ two of the 10 nominees in the Best Video category. Take a look at all nominees and decide who should win this Taste of Country award.
With Artist of the Year already decided, Song of the Year is the most distinguished honor at the 2014 Taste of Country Awards. Ten hits from 2013 make the ballot, including ACM, CMA and Grammy nominees. Combined, these tracks have sold over 11 million downloads, but which is worthy of this fan-decided honor?
Eric Church’s new song ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’ seems to fill in the answer to a question proposed last month through a short series of cryptic videos. The first video promised: “One will rise , one will fall," and then another indicated the first wasn't meant as an attack on Taylor Swift. It's not clear why footage of Swift was used at all, although this new song does explore themes the 24-year-old is famous for singing about.
The live version of 'The Call' from Garth Brooks' 'Live at the Wynn' performance is his first single since 2008. It's a duet with his wife Trisha Yearwood, but their happy marriage doesn't stand in the way of a heartbreaking performance.
Jamie Lynn Spears has the song, but her biggest challenges are still in front of her. The singer admits convincing a skeptical country music audience she's sincere will take some diligence. She won't have to look far to find an artist who has faced similar obstacles and flourished ... and one that flopped.

Country bad boy Brantley Gilbert finds that sweet spot between rowdy and romantic with his new single 'Bottoms Up,' the first from his upcoming sophomore album for Valory Music Co. Mid-tempo or 'rock-lite' is how one could describe this track, but the word "chill" best illustrates the mood the Georgian was going for.
Kellie Pickler's 'Santa Baby' is one of the best country Christmas songs of all time, and she tries that style once again in '(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man With the Bag,' her latest holiday recording. The versatile singer seems as comfortable weaving around her jazzy horn ensemble as she does the mandolins and acoustics that make up her best country cuts.
