Jason Aldean’s wife’s Instagram account has about as much to do with country music as Dog The Bounty Hunter, which is absolutely positively nothing, despite country media’s strange and lingering obsession with these subject matters. And now for the second time…

In 2015, when Mickey Guyton released her debut single “Better Than You Left Me,” she symbolized hope in the mainstream of country music for a host of reasons. Similar to how we regard artists such as Lainey Wilson and Carly Pearce today, Mickey Guyton was a bright spot.
“Turns out I did in fact unfortunately hemorrhage / rupture my vocal chords after all. I am currently getting the best treatment available and should fully recover, but its gonna be a long hot minute before I can return to stage,” Sturgill said in post late Wednesday night (9/29).
Tickets to the two shows sold out almost immediately. But if you still want to get in on the action, you can do so by paying into a livestream of one or both of the events via fans.live. Tickets will be $19.99 in advance, and $24.99 after the concert has commenced. Or you can purchase tickets to both nights.
It wasn’t such a big concern that it consumed all of our country music thoughts. But over the last few years, worries about if something was seriously wrong with Alan Jackson has been in the back of our minds for a host of reasons. There were a few suddenly postponed shows in 2018, including one […]
Finding her first big success with songs penned by John D. Loudermilk, once married to Western Swing banjo player Hank Penny, and recording multiple duet albums with Don Gibson, Sue Thompson left her mark on both pop and country with her girlish-sounding singing voice.
You know going into a new Billy Strings album that whatever it is you experience live will never be captured at the same caliber in a studio. But instead of trying to ensnare those surreal moments on a disc, Billy Strings and his cohorts must embrace the studio time as a separate medium.
There were few that could tap into the cosmic side of country music better, and nobody that could sail as deep into the ozone as Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen. And now, the band’s illustrious pilot, the Captain, keyboard player and singer Commander Cody himself, has died.
There is only one artist in this history of country music whose singing is so revered, he’s referred to simply as “The Voice.” But the career of Vern Gosdin also may contain one of the most sinister secrets in the history of country music. Did Vern Gosdin really contract two men to murder?

Well damn, the summer of 2021 didn’t exactly turn out like we all had planned. But country music is the crutch we all lean on when times get tough, or heartbreak and disappointment creeps into our lives. So here’s a newly-freshened selection of some the best country stuff.
the wild success Taylor Sheridan has enjoyed recently has somewhat overshadowed what was the third film in the screenwriter’s neo-Western trilogy about “the modern-day American frontier,” which also included ‘Sicario’ and ‘Hell or High Water.’ Called ‘Wind River’ …

Willie Nelson gives a lot of credit to his success to the fact that he’s been able to keep the same people around him for so long. The very first part of that family was Paul English. Paul’s skills as a manager made him a mainstay in Willie’s band all the way until he passed away.
On Friday, the mercurial artist announced that an upcoming five-night residency at Webster Hall in New York September 28th to October 2nd, as well as a three-night run at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville November 18th to 20th, would also be victims of the ongoing vocal issues.
Apparently, Carly Pearce did not get the memo. The script says that if you’re a mainstream country starlet that shows early promise in maintaining a little bit of country roots in your sound, as soon as you see some initial success, you’re supposed careen straight into full blown pop.
Jake Lentner’s ability to cross between the country and rock realm is what makes him such a perfect fit for the band of Cody Jinks moving forward. On November 12th, Cody Jinks will not only release his latest country record called ‘Mercy,’ he’ll be releasing a metal album.
Instead of doing the actual work to truly verify whether the donations had been made by Morgan Wallen, and/or being patient enough to wait until the information could be fully revealed, ‘Rolling Stone’ ran with the working assumption that the donations weren’t delivered at all
Many Sturgill Simpson fans in Charlotte, North Carolina and beyond are still disappointed after it was announced last minute and right before his set time that Sturgill Simpson would not be appearing. Tyler Childers has been tapped to perform for Sturgill in Georgia.
Apparently, Clint Eastwood liked what he heard so much, he decided to keep the vocal track as-is, and it’s now the first thing you hear as the film opens. “That guy’s voice is from the top of those speakers down to your feet,” Clint Eastwood said about Will Banister’s contribution.
A serious tussle with COVID-19, and even a host of pre-existing conditions was no death sentence for country legend David Allan Coe. And now with a long list of accolades and nicknames he already enjoys, perhaps we can now call him the Rolling Stone of Country. He might outlive us all.
“This is the best festival I’ve ever been a part of,” Cody Jinks said as he took the stage Sunday night (9-19) in Pryor, Oklahoma. Not faint praise from Cody, who’s played some big fests over the years, including his own personally curated one. And the praise was deserved.

The implications here are much bigger than radio. Lainey Wilson is one of these artists that helping to symbolize a return to country’s roots in the mainstream, evidenced by her well-received new record ‘Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’.’ Hopefully this #1 is the first of many for Lainey Wilson.
The tragedy rocked the Jackson family, and it’s one of the reasons Alan Jackson took an extended period off between his album ‘Angels & Alcohol’ in 2015, and his latest release from May, ‘Where Have You Gone.’ Now his daughter is releasing a new book about the experience
A talented and treasured member of both the Cajun and country music realm passed away too soon on Saturday, September 18th. Courtney Granger was the highly-revered and Grammy-nominated fiddle player, accordion player, and singer for Southwest Louisiana’s Pine Leaf Boys.
Watching Zach Bryan perform was like watching a local coffee house show with 5,000 people losing their everloving minds. When singing some of his biggest like “Godspeed” and “Condemned,” the crowd was singing along to every single word, and I mean Every. Single. Word.
