It’s country music week on the ‘Today’ show as Kathie Lee Gifford takes a vacation. So far, Josh Turner and Lee Brice have filled in, and two more country stars are planned for later this week. Taylor Swift also found time to sit down and chat about her new song ‘Eyes Open,’ and a stuffed animal has an important message regarding this year’s ACM Awards.

Check out all the top country headlines from Tuesday and a few others from around the web — including which metal band is going to appear on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ — in the Taste of Country Daily Roundup.
