Jennifer Nettles' new solo album is a round peg too big for country music’s square hole. Actually, ‘That Girl’ is sort of a zig-zaggy shaped object that doesn’t fit neatly within any genre’s stingy requirements. Jazz, blues, country, big band, Broadway, classic rock … Nettles dabbles.
Tim McGraw marries traditional country stylings to contemporary innovations in his new single ‘Lookin’ for That Girl.’ The scream of a pedal steel keeps the track safely on the country side of the radio, while his use of auto-tune points forward toward what could be the genre’s future.
Long bus rides, sold out concerts, terrible homesickness and the brotherhood that comes with being part of a traveling band ... Granger Smith's new documentary will give an honest look at everything a touring country singer goes through in an effort to bring the music to the people. This three-minute-long trailer gives fans a taste of what's to come later in 2014.
Fans of Gary Allan's and Ronnie Dunn's new videos will need to double down to top Scotty McCreery's 'See You Tonight.' The singer and former 'American Idol' winner topped 'It Ain' the Whiskey' by five percentage points for an eighth straight win. This week he'll aim for No. 9.
Joe Nichols’ new single ‘Yeah’ keeps the feel-good vibe of ‘Sunny and 75’ alive. On paper, the story comes across as a track that was all too popular in 2013, but the singer’s warm voice wraps the listener up like a good hug on chilly country night. His song is different because he’s not trying so hard.

Ashley Monroe, Kacey Musgraves and Kellie Pickler all recorded projects that made our list of the Top 10 of 2013. Now, it’s time for fans to decide who their choice for No. 1 is.
Eight new artists are competing for New Artist of the Year honors at the 2014 Taste of Country Awards. Three came from reality television, one came from scripted television, three made it the old-fashioned way and one came from out of nowhere to become one of the hottest concert tickets in country music. Who do you think should win the New Artist of the Year award?
There’s a timeless quality to Rascal Flatts’ love songs, like their latest ‘Rewind.’ It’s a song that could appear on any of the group’s eight previous studio albums. Gary, Jay and Joe Don have a signature sound, and they’ve remained loyal to it for almost 15 years.
'Us Again,' Chuck Wicks' debut single on Blaster Records, is a patient, orchestral ballad about yearning to get back together with the one you loved and lost. Wicks has always been a talented interpreter of songs. His pain comes through early on this track from an upcoming studio album.
