Country music's pop influences have never been as obvious as they are today. Top artists claim pop and rock bands as childhood favorites. Rock producers are shaping the format's top new albums. And the occasional guest appearance from a Music City outsider has become the rule, not the exception, on just about every country release.
Keith Urban’s new single ‘Somewhere in My Car’ is an uptempo, guitar-driven breakup song that recalls some of his earlier hits. Sonically, the pop-friendly rocker is similar to ‘Days Go By’ and ‘Who Wouldn’t Wanna Be Me.’ Lyrically, it's closer to 'We Were Us.'
Newcomers Chasin' Crazy have released a fun track in celebration of warm weather. It's aptly titled 'That's How We Do Summertime,' and it's a fun, laid back track that will have fans ready for bonfires at the beach and dancing at the local bar.
Miranda Lambert's new single, 'Somethin' Bad' is certainly one that leaves an impression. Enlisting the assistance of her fellow country superstar Carrie Underwood, Lambert goes full-tilt diva for a song that's just about as much fun as a song can be.
The Taste of Country Music Festival has begun, and things are already getting a little crazy. Backstage, before they took the stage, Friday night's performers stopped to take a "Good luck selfie," with a twist.
According to Hunter Hayes' new single, 'Tattoo,' the multi-talented country singer-songwriter might just be willing to get a little permanent ink -- if he meets the right girl of course! The new single, off of Hayes' 'Storyline' album is classic Hayes, returning to the reason fans love him so ardently - that boy can write a love song like nobody else.
