For Miranda Lambert, the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is a place of hope. She's certainly not alone in that belief. The millions of people who've been touched by the world famous medical research facility will agree, as will dozens of other country stars. For 25 years, country artists have led the fundraising charge for this world-class facility.
When asked if she had a St. Jude moment, Sheryl Crow didn’t hesitate. The internationally-known singer has been working with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for almost 20 years, but remembers one little girl who stole her heart at a time when she was exhausted.
Jay, Joe Don and Gary of Rascal Flatts have stepped up to help the kids at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. During a two-day Taste of Country webathon, fans can bid on this autographed electric guitar, with all proceeds going to St. Jude.
For 25 years, country radio has stepped up to raise money for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and on Thursday and Friday (March 6 and 7), Taste of Country is joining that effort. Head writer Billy Dukes explains how artists like Dierks Bentley and Sheryl Crow jumped at a chance to help with the first-annual webathon, and how you can participate.
The first-ever Taste of Country Tropical Nights concert in the Riviera Maya included four top-notch country singers, a lot of sunshine, ample amounts of food and drink and a ton of gorgeous photo opps. Dierks Bentley, Jana Kramer, Billy Currington and Brantley Gilbert each headlined one night of the Feb. 23-27 party at the new Hard Rock Hotel, and it's clear the experience is one that will have fans buying return trips to Mexico next winter.
Cassadee Pope released a new video for 'I Wish I Could Break Your Heart' this week. It's the only new addition to a Top 10 ballot that includes over 30 hot country music videos. Her fans have put her in the Top 5 before, but they'll need to get to work if they hope to knock off the streaking Scotty McCreery.
Turning a personal tragedy into a hit record is tricky, and not just for all the normal reasons that it's difficult to make a song into a hit. Artists who write a great personal song may be hesitant to record it for months or years. Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes considers three powerful songs and three artists who dealt with the personal tragedies that inspired them in very different ways.
There's little doubt that 'Riser' is Dierks Bentley's most personal album to date. The 12 songs explore the highs and lows of the singer's last two years, and he wants to make sure you're a part of it. Enter here to win a signed copy of Bentley's seventh studio album.
The sonic differences between ‘Riser’ and Dierks Bentley’s five previous studio albums (excluding ‘Up on the Ridge’) are subtle, but important. The Arizona-raised singer drops the rumbling, rambling, Bakersfield-inspired licks that made up many of his biggest hits and adds great lyrical depth.
