Taylor Swift is tired and a little glassy-eyed from a full day of interviews by the time we sit down to chat, but still she’s warm, kind and, well, genuine. Just like she seems. We’re like two girls in a coffee shop, even though we’re surrounded by bright lights, cameramen, assistants, label reps — you name it. She looks me in the eye, smiles, laughs and even compliments my dress, because despite being one of the biggest superstars on the planet, at 22 years old, Swift is still just a girl. A humble and surprisingly normal girl, who has crushes, falls in love, gets her heart broken… and writes No. 1 songs about it.
It’s clear that Taylor Swift‘s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ video will only continue the popularity of the record-setting single. The clip, which premiered across many major networks on Aug. 30, is a blend of pent-up rage, total randomness, odd splashes of color and Taylor Swift’s genuine nature — shot all in one take, with one camera.
Luke Bryan is on a major roll. The ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ singer has taken out his four previous competitors in the Showdown, day after day, which means he’s one stop away from being retired into the Hall of Fame, should he get five straight wins. To complete the mission, he’ll have to take out Edens Edge and their new single ‘Too Good to Be True’ today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio.
Kelleigh Bannen plowed past songs from the Lost Trailers and D. Vincent Williams on Taste of Country Nights radio this week with her debut single ‘Sorry on the Rocks.’ Will her wins be enough to help her take on big-leaguer Luke Bryan in the Showdown?
Sure, Kelleigh Bannen is a newcomer, but she’s proven that she’s ready to make an impact on country music. ‘Sorry on the Rocks,’ the new single from the determined EMI Nashville signee, made no apologies as it took down the Lost Trailers in yesterday’s Taste of Country Showdown. Today and tonight, Bannen and her song will attempt victory against D. Vincent Williams here and on Taste of Country Nights radio.
A baby girl has officially joined Eli Young Band‘s brood. Frontman Mike Eli and his wife, Kacey, welcomed Kline Olivia Diaz on Monday (July 30) in Dallas. The little girl, who is the first child for the couple, weighed in at 6 lbs. and 15 oz. She was expected to arrive in August.
Lauren Alaina has done it again. Though her name has only been ‘household’ for a year, the 17-year-old country starlet has proven that she’s worth a second listen. Now that she’s beaten both Jason Aldean and Trace Adkins in the Showdown, she’s looking for a third. Will she get another spin on Taste of Country Nights radio?
Kristin Chenoweth was rushed to the hospital after being injured while on the set of CBS’ series ‘The Good Wife‘ on Wednesday afternoon. According to reports, the multi-talented country singer and actress was struck by a large piece of lighting equipment, which was pushed into her by a gust of wind. Chenoweth was knocked to the ground and hit her head on then concrete.
Country fans who were excited to watch Luke Bryan sing the National Anthem at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night were left feeling confused by the end of his rendition. Without fail, the ‘Drunk on You’ singer hit all the notes and impressed baseball fans inside Kauffman Stadium — but those watching closely at home noticed that the singer appeared to be reading something, like the lyrics to the song, from his palm as he sang.
Eric Church is sorry he couldn’t see you on Friday, Buffalo, but he’s going to make it up to you. Heavy rain and high winds — and thus, unsafe conditions — forced WYRK to cut short their annual Taste of Country concert on Friday (June 1), and many fans went home disappointed.
On Sunday night, Taylor Swift was officially crowned with one of the most prestigious nods given at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards: Woman of the Year.
