Turning a personal tragedy into a hit record is tricky, and not just for all the normal reasons that it's difficult to make a song into a hit. Artists who write a great personal song may be hesitant to record it for months or years. Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes considers three powerful songs and three artists who dealt with the personal tragedies that inspired them in very different ways.
The lines of music genres are blurring, as artists from different worlds are starting to team up more and more frequently. Colombian beauty Shakira recently let her Twitter followers know she was busy in the studio -- with Blake Shelton!
The Big Game is this weekend. Everyone is getting hyped about what will happen on the field. But, there are many things happening off the field that are making headlines as well. A few will involve country music.
The nominees were announced via the ACM's Facebook page,Twitter and YouTube this morning. Some heavy hitting stars helped announce the nominees. Willie and Korie Robertson from Duck Dynasty gave us the nominees for Entertainer of the Year. Katy Perry announced the Female Vocalist of the Year nominees and Nancy O'Dell gave us the Male Vocalist of the Year nominees. Here is the list of the top categories.
Blake Shelton has flown under the radar since the season finale of 'The Voice' back in December when his rival and bromance partner Adam Levine triumphed and won the season, ending Shelton's three seasons in a row winning streak. Shelton checked in to answer fan questions and to reveal that he recently received a big and sexy gift from Levine, one that is currently stored in his garage.
The nominees for Live Act of the Year aren't just your usual suspects. New artists like Florida Georgia Line make the ballot, while first-time headliners like Luke Bryan and Eric Church look for fan votes against mainstays like Brad Paisley and Jason Aldean. George Strait may be the sentimental favorite, as he finished the first year of a two-year plan to retire from the road. Vote for your favorite live performer from 2013 here!
