What an amazing run for Josh Turner. The baritone country traditionalist has landed another very decisive victory with his new single ... but he'll be facing a very tough challenge from Chris Young today and over the weekend.
Chris Young’s "Sober Saturday Night" is an undeniably traditional country ballad that finds the singer healing heartbreak with heavy amounts of self-pity. Sparse production frames this vocal showcase — a made-for-a-television-awards-show moment with Vince Gill.
The newest (and final) American Idol champ, Trent Harmon, promised his fans regular live mini-concerts after taking home the title, and in his most recent show he not only put his own twist on some pop tunes, but some classic country songs as well.
Vince Gill has often spoke fondly of Merle Haggard. He has shared on several occasions of how Haggard was his biggest musical inspiration, and it is only fitting that he would honor his late friend with a personal song.
The 12 artists invited to play the sixth-annual All for the Hall benefit show at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday (April 12) were asked to play an original and a cover. Translation: play an original and a Merle Haggard song.
