We’re used to seeing our favorite country stars in the spotlight, but deep down we know that it’s the kiddos at home — in addition to the fans — who keep the music fresh and the artists on tour. That’s why we’ve assembled a list of country music’s most famous mothers and fathers alongside their children, as an ode to the little families they’ve got behind the scenes, the ones dearest to their hearts.
Kip Moore‘s first gold single almost never happened. The singer — whose debut album ‘Up All Night’ is in stores April 24 — explains that he and songwriter Dan Couch were finished writing for the day, but pulled out the guitars again to write ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck.’ Hear him tell the whole entertaining story in the video below, which is brought to you exclusively by Taste of Country.
April 20 isn’t an official holiday recognized by more stodgy establishments like the US government, but for a certain group of Americans, it’s a de facto Independence Day. Longtime marijuana connoisseur and legalization advocate Willie Nelson has chosen 4/20 as the day to stream his new song ‘Roll Me Up’ on his official website.
Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum has a puppy that looks like a living teddy bear. Jake Owen has two slobbery bulldogs. Who’s to say that one is cuter than the other, however? You can make that decision on your own at the end of this list of the cutest pets in country music.
Dick Clark was a man that tied fans of all genres of music together, so the news of his death is a hard pill to swallow for many. For almost 40 years, fans of rock, rap, pop and country music would tune in to watch “America's oldest teenager” count in the new year.
On Monday morning, thieves broke into the equipment trailer Tracy Lawrence had been towing around the country and stole several items important to the singer’s live show. All Access was the first to report the robbery, which occurred just after 4AM PT near Bakersfield, Calif.
Over the last decade, once reliable country superstars like Clint Black, Travis Tritt and Shania Twain have all but vanished. Sure, they may pop up on reality television or record an occasional duet, but with each passing year, fans are left hungry for new music from these former icons.
Blake Shelton was clearly more comfortable on stage during the ACM Awards 2012 than he was the previous year, the first time he co-hosted with Reba McEntire. It seemed like the singer was able to write some of his own jokes, or at least include jokes fans would expect to find on his Twitter page. For better or worse, the monologue and interludes had more bite than those in years past.
If you can’t identify which country singer sports that tattoo on sight, here are a few clues. He’s part of the hottest group in Nashville, and a bandmate of his was previously featured in the Tattoo Trivia game. He’s got two tattoos — at least two we can see — and both are inspired by a famous rock band.
Casey James’ personality shines through during each song on his self-titled debut project, and not just because the lyrics are mostly ripped from his pre and post-’American Idol’ life. It’s his laid-back demeanor that fans find so charming. In just a few minutes, one feels like the guitar slinger from Texas has figured out how to keep pace with the world. Never too slow. Never too fast. Always on the beat.
Country music fans under 40 are left scratching their heads about all the hype surrounding Lionel Richie‘s courting of Nashville’s greatest artists. First it was a duet with Shania Twain, now a full album of duets called ‘Tuskegee,’ and soon, the topper — a night in his honor after the ACM Awards next week.
One minute she’s serving sandwiches at the Beatty Street Grocery, the next she’s protected by an entourage, sashaying the streets of Nashville in high heels and a revealing mini. That’s a scenario the parents of 18-year-old ‘American Idol‘ contestant Skylar Laine are asking God to protect the singer from.
