Luke Bryan proved that he’s one of the hottest country artists on the planet last Friday. The ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ singer’s fans mopped up Kelleigh Bannen‘s contingent to make the fourth single from ‘Tailgates on Tanlines’ the new Showdown champion. He’ll face a repeat challenger today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio.
The new single from the Lost Trailers continues down a singer-songwriter path the now-duo began to cut with ‘Underdog’ in 2011. While once a party band, their new sound is more Jason Mraz than Jason Aldean. The change fits.
Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw and Eric Church all make strong debuts on the Top 40 Country Songs list for August, but none of their singles were good enough to take down a song that ranked No. 2 on the July 2012 list. Aldean comes closest, with ‘Take a Little Ride’ making a Top 5 debut this month.
Carrie Underwood‘s videos have been much celebrated by fans and the country music industry in the six years since she released her first clip for ‘Jesus Take the Wheel.’ The new video for ‘Blown Away‘ may be her most dramatic yet, but is it the best? What is your favorite Carrie Underwood video?
One more win and she’s in. Lauren Alaina is on the verge of having a second song enter the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame. Her new one, ‘Eighteen Inches,’ mopped up ‘Let There Be Cowgirls’ by Chris Cagle yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio. If the third single from ‘Wildflower’ can top the new song from Toby Keith, it will join ‘Georgia Peaches’ in the Hall.
Make it three in a row for Lauren Alaina and her new single ‘Eighteen Inches.’ After another day of heavy voting online and via the telephone on Taste of Country Nights radio, the song narrowly ousted Jana Kramer‘s hit ‘Why Ya Wanna.’ Now it’s up to fans of the Carrie Underwood co-written ballad to step up once again, if they want to best a man that’s been turning out hits for over a decade.
Jason Aldean fans clashed with fans of Brantley Gilbert on Friday night during a Showdown between friends and collaborators. After the online voting was added to phone calls from Taste of Country Nights radio, ‘Take a Little Ride’ by Aldean emerged as the new champion, grabbing just under 60 percent of the votes to 40 percent for ‘Kick It in the Sticks.’
Two of country music’s outlaws square off on today’s Taste of Country Showdown. The battle will end with an assault of phone call voting on Taste of Country Nights radio on Thursday night. You can vote now for either returning champion Eric Church and his song ‘Creepin’,’ or challenger Brantley Gilbert‘s new single ‘Kick It in the Sticks.’
There is a new Showdown champion! After almost record voting yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio, Eric Church‘s new single ‘Creepin” kinged Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ by an almost two-to-one margin. The fourth single from Church’s ‘Chief’ album seems poised to be another big song for the North Carolina-born country star. It could even become his third straight No. 1 hit.
After thousands of votes, Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ clipped Kip Moore‘s ‘Beer Money’ by fewer than 40 votes on Monday. A last second push by McGraw fans on Taste of Country Nights radio gave the country-rocker an edge that held up. That makes three in a row for the lead single from McGraw’s new album. Two more and the track will be retired to the Showdown Hall of Fame.
It’s difficult to overstate how important ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ is to Brantley Gilbert‘s career and the direction of country music. It’s a line drawn in the red Georgia clay — after two releases that held back — to allow those not previously familiar with the Jefferson-born singer to get acquainted with his pacing and style. This is his ‘Free Bird,’ in that it’s the first song fans and critics will mention in association with this talented artist.
Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ made short work of ‘Corn Star’ by Craig Morgan last Friday. The two Showdown songs battled it out online and on Taste of Country Nights radio, with the debut single from McGraw’s upcoming new album taking 70 percent of the vote. Fans of the song will have to step up again today if the song is going to best another one of the party songs of the summer.
