Now that 2011 is finally here, the question lingers: What will be the first big country hit songs of 2011? We decided to ask the experts -- more specifically, the program directors in country radio.
Tom "Jake" Jacobsen, program director of country radio station WGNA in Albany, N.Y. (the No. 1 radio station in Albany) narrows in on a new single from a small town girl with big talent, as well as a "great love song" written by the offspring of Billy Montana. Check out his picks below, and let us know if you agree in the comments!
