2013 was full of tragedy, surprises and celebration -- it seemed a new jaw-dropping news event took place just about every month in country music. Five events make the final cut as nominees for the Headline of the Year Award at the 2014 Taste of Country Awards. Which do you think should win?
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.
All five nominees for the Heartwarming Moment of the Year award at the 2014 Taste of Country Awards involve kids ... duh. Country artists go out of of their way to help children in need, turning up in the most surprising places. It's the only format where a dying girl can ask to get a phone call from her favorite singer and actually receive it.
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?
Eric Church’s new song ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’ seems to fill in the answer to a question proposed last month through a short series of cryptic videos. The first video promised: “One will rise , one will fall," and then another indicated the first wasn't meant as an attack on Taylor Swift. It's not clear why footage of Swift was used at all, although this new song does explore themes the 24-year-old is famous for singing about.
There's an art to giving a great interview, and not every country star has mastered it. In fact, most fall somewhere between guarded and nervous when they pick up the phone or agree to talk about their lives and music face-to-face. That holds a singer back, but it's an obstacle that can be overcome, as Brantley Gilbert has proven.
The live version of 'The Call' from Garth Brooks' 'Live at the Wynn' performance is his first single since 2008. It's a duet with his wife Trisha Yearwood, but their happy marriage doesn't stand in the way of a heartbreaking performance.
Charlie Worsham comes across as a normal guy you want to root for. He’s polite, like someone you’d be happy to have your daughter bring home for dinner, and his deferential manner is reflected in the best songs on ‘Rubberband,’ including ‘Want Me Too,’ his new single.
Scotty McCreery holds the top spot on the ToC Top 10 Video Countdown once again, but two new challengers are sure to give him a battle. 'Bottoms Up,' the just-released video from Brantley Gilbert, and Luke Bryan's 'Drink a Beer' are two videos added to the poll this week. They join over two dozen other hot videos chasing just 10 spots.
