Heavy rain showers didn't stop country music fans who'd come from all over to see Willie Nelson on Thursday night. Thousands packed Hunter Mountain in New York for the inaugural Taste of Country Music Festival. Ponchos, umbrellas, cold beverages and great country music kept fans in good spirits while the LoCash Cowboys, Parmalee and Nelson took the stage.
Blake Shelton's 'Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert' began as a live telecast and web stream Wednesday night on NBC. It was highlighted by moving performances from Shelton, Reba McEntire, Miranda Lambert, Usher and more. All donations benefited the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund.
All-star collaborations were the order early during the 2013 ACM Awards performances in Las Vegas on Sunday night (April 7). Even Eric Church's acoustic performance of 'Like Jesus Does' turned into a duet. Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Luke Bryan and Pistol Annies began the show performing 'Boys 'Round Here.' It was an electric introduction to country music's biggest party.
The big 2013 ACM Awards winners in Las Vegas were Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan. Lambert took home three trophies, including Female Vocalist of the Year and Single and Song of the Year for 'Over You.' The singer couldn't help but become emotional as she accepted her fifth straight Female Vocalist trophy.
The biggest night in music is also one of the biggest nights in fashion, and the 2013 Grammy Awards did not disappoint. The best dressed artists from the red carpet took chances, but didn't go too far with a good idea. Country music's best dressed stayed on the right side of the line between exciting and eyesore.
Country music's hottest stars walked the red carpet at the 2013 Grammy Awards, and while most shined, a few failed to impress on music's biggest night. Pictures of the worst dressed country stars from the 2013 Grammys don't quite compare to the worst dressed from the pop world -- did you see the moon man? -- but these three outfits were still less than flattering.
Congratulations to Taylor Swift and her fans! Together, Team Swifties topped 15 other country music fanbases to finish on top at the end of the first-ever Taste of Country Bowl. Nearly three quarters of a million fans voted during the month-long competition which had nail-biting finishes in each round.
Superstars like Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood ruled the ToC Top 10 Video Countdown last week, but neither artist -- or any of the other seven -- were able to displace the singer with the No. 1 video. Taylor Swift enjoyed back-to-back wins, but can she make it three in a row? Vote for your favorite videos in the readers poll below.
A flood of late voting threatened to turn the tide of many of the Round 1 Taste of Country Bowl matchups. At least one artist who went into the weekend with a comfortable lead finds himself without a game in Round 2. Only eight teams remain in the battle to determine the best pairing of artist and fanbase.
