Over 1.5 million fans have made Taste of Country the No. 1 source for country music news. That's how many people 'like' ToC on Facebook, and the population is growing by the thousands each week. In fact, if Taste of Country were a state, we'd be bigger (and with your help) much cooler than 11 states in America!

Fans who follow ToC know they'll never be spammed with stories or news they're not interested in. Only the most compelling content gets shared. That includes breaking news, important song reviews, Top 10 lists, fun features and exclusive album and song premieres. In the last week, we've also added a brand new mobile version of the website to make keeping up with your favorite artists even easier.

Taste of Country Facebook fans were the first to know when Mindy McCready died in February and when George Jones died in April. News of Hillary Scott's pregnancy and Carrie Underwood landing the 'Sunday Night Football' gig after Faith Hill's departure were some of the happier moments of the past year.

If you've yet to 'like' us, do it now here. Our readers keep us on our toes with reactions and feedback to stories and pictures we publish. It's also the place we turn to get a sense of how country America is reacting to a news story.

Today, Taste of Country offers 1.5 million thank yous, and we look forward to giving many more in the weeks, months and years to come.
