For a second straight week, Twitter proved to be as entertaining as a major television event starring major country music stars. That's not a knock on Tuesday night's (Dec. 10) 2013 ACAs, there were just some really funny things being said by fans and people who were somewhat less than thrilled. We took out the vitriol and set up a list of all the best -- but mostly harmless -- tweets sent during the Fox broadcast.
The deluxe edition of 'Golden,' Lady Antebellum's fourth studio album, includes three previously unreleased songs plus three acoustic versions of well-known hits. All six fit within the context of the original 12 tracks. 'Golden' is still the most organic album the trio has released to date.
Most of the artists who make the 2013 CMA Awards Worst Dressed list would have benefitted from a quick look in the mirror before stepping out. "Disheveled" is how one could describe a few of these five stars. Suits that don't fit and gowns fit for a first trip to your future mother-in-law's house get noticed for all the wrong reasons. Please, don't try this at home.
There were a few risks, but most of the best dressed country stars at the 2013 CMA Awards leaned traditional on Wednesday night (Nov. 6). Despite the cold and damp forecast, leading ladies opted for sleeveless gowns, while the men went with dark suits and thin neckties (Although, you will find one bow tie on this list). Take a look before checking out the worst dressed from country music's biggest night.
The 2013 CMA Awards winners earn respect and recognition from their fans and country music peers, plus a really cool, really heavy glass trophy to put on their mantel, tour bus or coffee table. Tim McGraw won two CMAs before the 2013 broadcast even started on Nov. 6. His wins for Music Video and Musical Event of the Year were not surprising. 'Highway Don't Care' was also up for Single of the Year.
Julie Roberts has one of the more captivating country voices of the last 10 years. At times on her new album 'Good Wine and Bad Decisions,' she pulls you in like a blue-eyed, blonde-haired Venus flytrap. The painful songs are every bit as satisfying as the more sensual moments.
Toby Keith's new song is full of attitude, but that's assumed, given the title. 'Shut Up and Hold' on will remind fans of 'Made in America,' Keith's last No. 1 hit, but the production of this bluesy rocker is grittier and more complex.
The opening track on Toby Keith's 'Drinks After Work' album sets the tone for a mostly hard-rockin' ride that's full of attitude. Sure, that describes many of the singer's best songs, but as a producer, he makes subtle changes to give this collection of songs its own space.
As 2013 comes to a close, the question has to be asked: Who in country music had the best year? Taste of Country has compiled a list of 16 candidates, split them into two groups and thrown open the voting booths. Now, it's up to you to decide: Who was the hottest country star of 2013?
