Tim McGraw’s Concert Results in Tragedy + More – This Week’s Hottest News
Tragedy and controversy involving Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts and Dolly Parton make up three of the most read Taste of Country stories this week. However, it was country music's reaction to pop-star Amy Winehouse's death that far outpaced the crowd. Taylor Swift's left arm made the list as did the story behind her new hit song, 'Sparks Fly.' Also, find out why so many people were arrested at a Brad Paisley concert and watch Lauren Alaina blush when asked about her status with Scotty McCreery.
Taylor Swift won't say exactly who she was thinking about when she wrote her song 'Sparks Fly,' but Taste of Country followed some clues and came up with a pretty convincing argument that a country hunk may have been on her mind at the time.
"Quite a performance in (Darien Lake, N.Y.) Saturday. We also played music," tweeted Brad Paisley after over 50 fans were arrested for various misdemeanors during his show. Who knew Paisley fans were such a rowdy bunch?
Swift fans know she likes to ink up her left arm with song lyrics from some of her favorite songs and artists. Now fans have started tracking her temporary artwork after each 'Speak Now' tour stop. Taste of Country also put together its own comprehensive list, which creates quite an interesting narrative.

In a 35-minute chat at the Google offices in San Fransisco, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina talked about texting Carrie Underwood, their new albums, finding some time off and their relationship status.

The CMA co-hosts showcase their eye-catching chemistry in this video for Paisley's new hit song. Filmed in the desert, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood work their way towards each other without ever seeming to break a sweat. Could there be 'Video of the Year' chatter beginning for a song that already has people talking about bigger awards?
But does LeVox want to hear it? He helped Cledus T. Judd co-write a tender tribute to Caylee Anthony after her mother Casey was found not-guilty of murder earlier this month. Caylee's grandfather was a high profile witness, and many Taste of Country readers feel LeVox should not bring unnecessary attention to his meet-and-greet line.
Tim McGraw is known for stopping his concerts if he doesn't like how a fan is being treated, but he couldn't see one fan being beaten to the brink of death at a recent show in Massachusetts. Life-saving surgeries saved the teen's live, and later this week arrests were made.
From Reba McEntire to James Otto, country artist opinions were unanimous after pop-star Amy Winehouse was found dead last week: a sad loss of a wonderful, young talent. Even the always-jokey Blake Shelton expressed his sympathies.
