Tim McGraw vs. Eric Church – The Showdown

After thousands of votes, Tim McGraw‘s ‘Truck Yeah’ clipped Kip Moore‘s ‘Beer Money’ by fewer than 40 votes on Monday. A last second push by McGraw fans on Taste of Country Nights radio gave the country-rocker an edge that held up. That makes three in a row for the lead single from McGraw’s new album. Two more and the track will be retired to the Showdown Hall of Fame.

Two years ago, Jerrod Niemann was floating on a cloud, having just released his debut album on July 13, 2010, a few days before performing with Brad Paisley for 100K boaters at Aquapalooza on Lake Travis in Texas. Then, he sat down and wrote a new song — the one that would go on to become the lead single from his sophomore project called ‘Free the Music,’ available Oct. 2, 2012. Yup, this country music thing seemed pretty easy for the ‘Shinin’ on Me’ singer.

Brantley Gilbert Dishes on His Dream Woman, Dream Collaborations and the Benefits of Heartbreak

Brantley Gilbert sort of chuckles when people tell him Jason Aldean stole his songs. It’s not true, and Gilbert knows he couldn’t have made them hits like his fellow Georgian did.
