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.
For some, it comes naturally. For others, it comes with a little help and a $30 million necklace. OK, Carrie Underwood looked great at the Grammys even without the jewels, and her wardrobe choices in 2013 made her an easy pick for nomination in the Best Dressed category at the 2014 Taste of Country Awards. It's up to fans to decide who has the best style.
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?

Sometimes, a slight change in lyrics -- especially when it's only one word -- isn't a big deal. But on 'The Voice' Tuesday night (Nov. 26), the show's viewers and coach Blake Shelton got all riled up when the word 'Lord' was removed, changed to simply 'oh.'
Wayne Mills, leader of the outlaw-country Wayne Mills Band, was killed during an altercation with a bar owner in Nashville early Saturday morning (Nov. 23). Police say Pit and Barrel owner Chris Ferrell shot the 44-year-old. Ferrell said the 5AM shooting was in self-defense.
What do you get when you combine Justin Moore with some very talented songwriters, including Rhett Akins? You get Moore's No. 1 hit, 'Point at You' -- but the song was actually almost recorded by another big country star.
Austin Jenckes came to 'The Voice' through Nashville and Duvall, Wash. The 25-year-old is one of three remaining members of Team Blake, and after a rendition of a Travis Tritt hit this week, he's itching to get back in front of the cameras.
