Turning a personal tragedy into a hit record is tricky, and not just for all the normal reasons that it's difficult to make a song into a hit. Artists who write a great personal song may be hesitant to record it for months or years. Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes considers three powerful songs and three artists who dealt with the personal tragedies that inspired them in very different ways.
If we didn't know better, we'd think this tiny tot named Isabella was related to country power couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. As she sings 'Boys 'Round Here,' she displays both Shelton's signature smirks and Lambert's lovable sass. What more could you ask for?
George Strait's 2014 Cowboy Rides Away Tour has featured a slew of special guests thus far, many of them even sharing the stage with the legend. Little Big Town are the latest act to join the King of Country for a song, performing a fantastic rendition of the icon's hit 'You Look So Good in Love.'
Blake Shelton is one of my favorite country stars and the reason for that is because he's just so silly! Not only that, but he doesn't try to hide behind a fake personality. The silliness you see is who Blake is.
The lines of music genres are blurring, as artists from different worlds are starting to team up more and more frequently. Colombian beauty Shakira recently let her Twitter followers know she was busy in the studio -- with Blake Shelton!
A trio of country superstars was just too much for nine other nominees to overcome. Tim McGraw's 'Highway Don't Care,' a chart-topping collaboration with Taylor Swift and Keith Urban, was voted the best song of 2013 at the recent Taste of Country Awards.
Billy Currington's anthemic 'We Are Tonight' lyrics are all about summer nights, the freedom of Fridays and a beautiful girl. While it's clearly a hot weather, feel-good song, the inspiration behind it may surprise you.
