Instead of writing new songs for his next album, Blake Shelton has taken to rewriting hits from other country music stars. Kenny Chesney‘s ‘Come Over’ and Tim McGraw‘s ‘Live Like You Were Dying’ were his two victims choices in the past 24 hours.
Summer tours have allowed the hottest country men to travel the nation — in less clothing than normal — giving every fan a chance to see one or two of the sexiest male stars of 2012. A few look their best on stage, while others wear a suit and tie like a policeman wears his uniform. It just fits.
It’s not uncommon for the hottest songs on radio to become viral YouTube sensations with the fans, but it’s not every day that a village of superstars jump on board a song and create their own tribute to it. Many of the biggest names in country music — including Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Sara Evans and the ladies of Pistol Annies — have come together in a hilarious viral video for Little Big Town‘s summer smash anthem, ‘Pontoon.’
Today’s Showdown is a battle between friends. Luke Bryan and Colt Ford will have to put their personal relationship aside to win the song battle that culminates each night on Taste of Country Nights radio. ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ topped ‘One More Sad Song’ from Randy Rogers Band on Tuesday, making Bryan’s newest single a three-time champion.
Eli Young Band are back at No. 1 on both the Billboard and Mediabase / Country Aircheck Country Singles charts this week with their latest hit, ‘Even if It Breaks Your Heart.’ This marks the second consecutive chart-topper for the foursome following ‘Crazy Girl.’
Our hearts go out to Jake Owen, who lost his dear godmother, Pearl, on Tuesday (July 10). Owen may not talk about her much in interviews, but if you look closely, you can spot a tattoo of Pearl’s name on the country star’s left wrist.
It’s already been a great year for Jake Owen, but it just got a lot better. The country singer has announced that his wife Lacey Buchanan Owen is pregnant with the couple’s first child. The couple is expecting a little girl to arrive this November.
This summer might just be Jake Owen‘s hottest yet. Not only is he palling around the country with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw on the Brothers of the Sun Tour, but with another No. 1 single on his hand, it looks like Owen is turning his attention to his most recent release, ‘The One That Got Away’ and a new video to match.
