George Strait's campaign for 2014 ACM Entertainer of the Year asks fans to make him the Entertainer of a Lifetime. It's a deviation from most campaigns for fan-voted awards that list everything an artist has accomplished in that year. Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes argues that Strait may be the only person capable of doing this.
Miranda Lambert's new album 'Platinum' will be available on June 3 and, with 16 tracks, there's a lot to know about the new studio project. Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes has managed to cram it all into one, 30-second-long, video cheat sheet.
Luke Bryan’s sixth spring break EP isn’t so much a party album as it is a project for short-term lovers. Bryan explores the romantic side of spring break during ‘Like We Ain’t Ever.’ In many ways it’s an extension of the songs on ‘Crash My Party.’

Eric Palsay's self-titled debut album is in stores now, and he's celebrating by turning over the strings to a new guitar. Enter here for your chance to win this autographed acoustic from the 'Friday Night' hitmaker.
Why isn't a country superstar performing during halftime of the Super Bowl? It's a fair question, and one country fans have asked every year since Shania Twain took the stage in 2003. Surely there are stars big enough to draw the nation's interest, right?
