Brantley Gilbert vs. Love and Theft – The Showdown
Brantley Gilbert‘s nation of fans put the singer’s new song in a place he’s plenty familiar with — the winner’s circle. ‘More Than Miles,’ a sweet new ballad about leaving a lover behind to chase a dream, topped the new single from Kristy Lee Cook on Tuesday and Tuesday night on Taste of Country Nights radio. Today’s competition will be twice as stiff.
Cute Kids Singing Country Songs – LeAnn Rimes, ‘Blue’
Watch as the emcee of this talent show does a double-take just a few notes into Kortney Jean’s rendition of ‘Blue’ by LeAnn Rimes. He turns from his stereo and looks over the rims of his glasses as if to say, “Daaaang girl!” The 7-year-old’s performance is truly exceptional.

‘Nashville’ Star Hayden Panettiere (as Juliette Barnes), ‘Telescope’ – Song Review
After just one episode of ‘Nashville,‘ it’s difficult to imagine how the show’s first radio single is going to fit in with the storyline. ‘Telescope’ by Hayden Panettiere — Juliette Barnes on the show — is a rollicking pop-country song about keeping track of one’s man as his eyes wander. After the pilot, it seems like women in ‘Nashville’ need to have telescopic eyes to keep an eye on Barnes, as s

That's after online and telephone voting on Taste of Country Nights radio led to wins over songs from Clay Walker and Little Big Town. Perhaps it will take another country newcomer to oust the brother trio's sin
High Valley vs. Clay Walker – The Showdown
It was a huge upset yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio. Fans of Canadian sibling trio High Valley set a pace that Little Big Town just couldn’t keep up with, sending ‘Love You for a Long Time’ to the next round of the Showdown.
