Heavy rain showers didn't stop country music fans who'd come from all over to see Willie Nelson on Thursday night. Thousands packed Hunter Mountain in New York for the inaugural Taste of Country Music Festival. Ponchos, umbrellas, cold beverages and great country music kept fans in good spirits while the LoCash Cowboys, Parmalee and Nelson took the stage.
Before kicking off the inaugural Taste of Country Music Festival in Hunter, N.Y. on Thursday night (June 13), Chris Lucas and Preston Brust of the LoCash Cowboys told Taste of Country that one song from their new album could be the 'Duck Dynasty' theme song, should the popular A&E show ever need another. That turned into something of a prophetic statement.
Each week, Taste of Country readers decide the Top 10 new country music videos, which means each week, your favorite video has a chance to be No. 1. Online voting is the only thing considered to decide who comes in at No. 1 -- and dead last. Find your favorite video or videos and vote up to once every hour to make sure they're not left outside the countdown this week.
The Taste of Country Music Festival is approaching quickly, and artists like headliners Lady Antebellum are as excited to arrive at Hunter Mountain as fans are. Enter below for a chance to win three-day passes or VIP tickets to the festival and a meet and greet with Dave, Charles and Hillary.
Songs that are amongst the biggest of Lee Brice and Lady Antebellum's careers make a return to the ToC Top 10 Video Countdown this week -- in a big way. 'I Drive Your Truck' was a chart-topper for Brice, while Lady A's 'Downtown' sits at the top of the charts just this week. However, neither of these videos were No. 1 on this list, as decided explicitly by country music fans.
Here's a strange fact about the Taste of Country Top 10 Video Countdown: Only videos from blonde singers have reached the No. 1 spot. Toby Keith kept the streak alive last week, as fans chose 'Hope on the Rocks' as the most popular clip of the week. Casey James and Carrie Underwood were close behind with their recent videos, but new offerings from the Band Perry and 'X Factor' winner Tate Stevens could challenge them for the title.
All right, I've just got to vent about my recent experience with the doctor. I've only worked one day this week due to my bronchitis. On Tuesday I was told I would need to be out for two days and be on meds.
