Can a band win five straight Showdowns without the support of radio stations nationwide? That's what Old Dominion is trying to do today and Thursday with their debut single 'Shut Me Up.' The five-piece country-rock group topped American Young earlier this week. Today they'll call upon their fans to top Lucy Hale.
With the release of 'Wasn't Gonna Drink Tonight,' American Young have continued to expand the definition of classic country music. While the song's lyrics and message make 'Wasn't Gonna Drink Tonight' a firm contender for country radio, the duo's powerful harmonies and innovative instrumentation continue to push the boundaries of popular country music.
Tim McGraw's 'Sundown Heaven Town' album will be available on Tuesday (Sept. 16), a fact readers of Taste of Country will hardly miss. The singer has taken over the No. 1 country music news site on the web, agreeing to roll out exclusive interviews and content each day over the next two weeks.
Country newcomers have taken to regularly out-pacing the biggest stars in Music City during this weekly Top 10 video countdown. Fans get to decide whose videos are the best, and lately that's been good news for Scotty McCreery, Danielle Bradbery and David Nail.
Country five-piece Old Dominion has knocked two superstar songs from the Showdown challengers circle. Their debut single 'Shut Me Up' comes after nearly a decade of hard work on the road, and in the writing room. This weekend they'll face a man who's worked equally hard over the last decade.
Country newcomers Old Dominion upset a veteran named Joe Nichols earlier this week. Their song 'Shut Me Up' is proving to be as popular in this song battle as it is on satellite radio. The competition gets stiffer today and Thursday however. Can the OD nation rise again?
