Taylor Swift doesn't have thick skin, she tells Taste of Country (after all, no good writer does) -- a trait only amplified during her live show, where she seems most at home. The 'Begin Again' superstar took the stage in the capital city of Austin, Texas on Tuesday night (May 21) wearing her heart on her sleeve and showing it off song by song, story by story.
Aside from being as cute today as this country star was when the baby picture was taken, not much is the same 20-something years later. The eyes are a different color, the smile is more vibrant and the fashion choices are a little more trendy. Do you think you know who this is?
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert brought their much-decorated ballad 'Over You,' which they penned together about the death of Shelton's brother, to 'The Voice' on Tuesday, performing the intimate and deeply personal song with a different purpose.
Cassadee Pope didn't rush to release her debut single 'Wasting All These Tears' as so many reality show winners do. It's been six months since she won Season 3 of 'The Voice,' and the singer seems to have made the most of the time, as the track is a polished and unique semi-country arrangement.
Kellie Pickler actually won two competitions last night, and both were very, very close. The 'Dancing With the Stars' champion topped Keith Urban's new single by the slimmest of Showdown margins. Her song 'Someone Somewhere Tonight' took 52 percent of the fan vote, meaning she'll move on to face a new competitor today and Thursday.
'Love Will …' is the new collection of love songs from Trace Adkins. It's a project that makes complete sense, as few men in country music can match the singer's romantic baritone. Adkins says he didn't intend to make the project he ended up with, however.
Brad Paisley's 'Beat This Summer' lyrics were written by the singer with help from talented scribes Luke Laird and Chris DuBois. Unfortunately for the co-songwriters, Paisley knows how to burn the midnight oil -- and they were up way past their bedtime.
