ToC Encore: Country Music Can’t Win at the Super Bowl

Why isn't a country superstar performing during halftime of the Super Bowl? It's a fair question, and one country fans have asked every year since Shania Twain took the stage in 2003.

Florida Georgia Line (Feat. Luke Bryan), ‘This Is How We Roll’ [Listen]

Florida Georgia Line stick to familiar themes, but deliver their most original lyric yet on ‘This Is How We Roll,’ a collaboration with Luke Bryan.

Album Spotlight: Jennifer Nettles, ‘That Girl’

Jennifer Nettles' new solo album is a round peg too big for country music’s square hole. Actually, ‘That Girl’ is sort of a zig-zaggy shaped object that doesn’t fit neatly within any genre’s stingy requirements. Jazz, blues, country, big band, Broadway, classic rock … Nettles dabbles.
