Introducing the 2017 Taste of Country Summer Hot List
End-of-year lists look back. The Taste of Country Hot List looks forward, so you know what the hottest tours, songs and more are this summer.
Starting with the Top 10 Summer Singles and continuing with the Hottest Men, Tours, Artists Under 25 and Women, the annual Hot List is your country summer primer. You'll discover new artists, re-discover hitmakers and find help deciding where to spend your money in 2017. And then there are a few lists that are just for fun, like Hot Under 25 and Hot on Instagram.
A whole lot of "feel good" put this list together. The 10 hottest songs of the summer were chosen by deciding which seemed to make country fans get a little crazy or chill out for awhile. We spent weeks road-testing the songs, researching tours, pouring over photos of country music's most beautiful men and women — yeah, it's a pretty tough job but, you know. Someone has to do it.
Find the full Hot List schedule below and then links to each list as they go live. Spring and summer have arrived! Let's start planning the best ways to spend each moment together, maybe with a cold drink at the swimming pool. As always, your feedback is welcome in the comments section below. Maybe we'll see you at one of country music's hottest festivals in 2017?
