It was an exciting week of country news, with some stories that left you feeling sympathetic (Randy Travis, LeAnn Rimes) and more that filled the air with excitement. Taylor Swift‘s new video and Toby Keith‘s new album are just two of the many excuses one had this week for shouting joy while co-workers drummed away quietly at their keyboards. 

What do you think is the most exciting news story this week week? Was it the new video for ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ or Keith’s announcement that he’ll release ‘Hope on the Rocks‘ on Nov. 13? Darius Rucker released a new single from his upcoming album, and Trace Adkins also shared new music at the Republican National Convention. Finally, Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum got a new puppy! We didn’t think anything could top Hobbs’ cuteness, but look at that face! Baker’s eyes were put on crooked, but we love her for it.
