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.
Kellie Pickler has been named the winner of Season 16 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' besting Disney star Zendaya in the final two. "Grandpa Ken, we got you the trophy buddy," partner Derek Hough shouted, referring to the man who raised Pickler. NFL player Jacoby Jones finished third, with gymnast Aly Raisman finishing fourth.
Brad Paisley's No. 1 album 'Wheelhouse' is perhaps his most intriguing album yet, thanks to the collaborations he included. Rapper LL Cool J had a prime spot on the album -- the song 'Accidental Racist' sparked much controversy -- but Paisley admitted there's another rapper he's thought about teaming up with... and it probably wouldn't go over too well in the country music scene.
Trace Adkins' 2005 hit 'Arlington' should be on everyone's Memorial Day playlist. This 5-year-old does the song justice with a respectful cover that honors the singer and the subject matter. We appreciate Koty's unique song choice. You'll find 100 covers of 'Honky Tonk Badonkadonk' for every one of 'Arlington.'
'Whatever She's Got' represents a new sound -- and new look -- for David Nail. The 'Let It Rain' singer previously relied on a strong voice and bittersweet lyrics to work songs up the charts. The new track is pop-friendly and not nearly as deep.
Blake Shelton will return to the living rooms of millions for a fifth season of NBC's popular reality singing competition, 'The Voice.' Viewers can rest assured that the comedic country crooner will be sitting back in that big red chair, offering his humor and wisdom to contestant hopefuls come fall.
