Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift + Blake Shelton Lead 2014 Taste of Country Awards

ToC Awards 2014
Taste of Country

Time is running out to decide the 2014 Taste of Country Awards winners. With less than three weeks to go, none of the eight, fan-voted categories is turning into a blowout win for Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift or Blake Shelton. Luke Bryan and Tim McGraw are also making strong showings, but it’s the newcomers that are really battling. Hundreds of thousands of votes have been cast, but this contest promises to go all the way to the February 11 deadline. 

Below is a recap of all eight categories and the ballots for each award. Numbers quoted are as of Jan. 24. You can vote up to once every hour for your favorite artist, song, album or video. The 2014 Taste of Country Awards will close at 10AM ET on Feb. 11.

Song of the Year – Right now, this is Tim McGraw’s to lose. ‘Highway Don’t Care’ holds 27 percent of the vote, ahead of Carrie Underwood’s 21 percent for ‘Two Black Cadillacs.’ Blake Shelton’s ‘Mine Would Be You’ is third (16 percent) and Lee Brice is fourth with ‘I Drive Your Truck’ (11 percent).

Best Album of the Year – Gary Allan leads in the only category he’s nominated. ‘Set You Free’ holds 34 percent of the vote, followed by Blake Shelton’s ‘Based on a True Story’ at 30 percent and Tim McGraw’s ‘Two Lanes of Freedom’ at 11 percent.
