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.
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.
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.
Alan Jackson has cruised through four straight Showdowns, but to get to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame, he’s going to have to top another country superstar in Darius Rucker. The legend’s new song ‘You Go Your Way’ is hot right now, with online and phone call votes leaning heavily his way. But Rucker might be hotter.
Taste of Country Nights host Jeremy Robinson is from Texas, so you’d think he’d have known last night’s Lyrical Pursuit song. The winning contestant thought so too, and wasn’t afraid to call him out on a nationally syndicated radio show.
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.
Shania Twain turned 47 yesterday,August 28, and still looks great! The singer has offered cutting-edge country music and fashion in the 18 years since releasing ‘The Woman With Me’ in 1995. While this wasn’t her debut album, its success (over 12 million copies sold in the U.S. alone) changed the landscape of country music forever.
Darius Rucker takes a simple story of two lovers who defy odds and skeptics and places it gently on a cloud in the stratosphere — a place few others can reach. ‘True Believers’ begins as a mild and unremarkable pop-country song before clever production and Rucker’s unforgettable voice find one soaring in the euphoria.
Thomas Rhett moved his song ‘Beer With Jesus’ within one win of becoming a rare Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Famer. The singer’s fans outvoted fans of Jaida Dreyer’s ‘Confessions’ by a two-to-one-margin on Friday and Friday night on Taste of Country Nights radio. Today, Rhett will have to battle a singer with a little more star power in Randy Houser.
If Joanna Smith‘s new single ‘We Can’t Be Friends’ was released 30 years ago, we might call it a classic in 2012. Since the singer is relatively new, however (the sexy single ‘Georgia Mud’ barely cracked the chart in 2011 ), we’ll restrain ourselves from over-selling this portrait of caged yearning. Smith is the perfect voice to tell the story.
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.
