Trace Adkins says he wasn’t trying to make a political statement when he performed his new song, ‘Tough People Do,’ at the Republican National Convention earlier this week. The singer says the tube — referred to as a red, white and blue anthem of strength and courage at his website — is meant to remind Americans that the solution to fix this country is within all of us, regardless of political affiliation.

Keith Urban has accepted an offer from Fox producer’s to judge ‘American Idol‘ next season, less than one day after being named the frontrunner for an open seat on the panel. The Country Vibe reports that Urban has agreed to take the job, making him the second country superstar on a major network reality show.
Thomas Rhett moved his song ‘Beer With Jesus’ within one win of becoming a rare Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Famer. The singer’s fans outvoted fans of Jaida Dreyer’s ‘Confessions’ by a two-to-one-margin on Friday and Friday night on Taste of Country Nights radio. Today, Rhett will have to battle a singer with a little more star power in Randy Houser.

EPs are often like movie sequels in that they often feel like a ploy to make a few dollars instead of a chance for an artist to expand upon a theme. Much like ‘Empire Strikes Back,’ and more recently, ‘Toy Story 2′, Dierks Bentley‘s ‘Country and Cold Cans’ proves to be an exception.
To celebrate National Senior Citizens Day, which is August 21, we thought we’d look ahead to how country music’s top stars will look when they get closer to becoming AARP members. Many — like Blake Shelton and Jana Kramer — promise to age gracefully. Others… well, not so much. Sorry about that, Taylor Swift!
Who is the sexiest woman in country music? You’ll have to decide that for yourself after checking out 10 frontrunners for the 2012 title. Note that these women aren’t listed in any particular order, as all are capable of leaving a man with Looney Tunes eyes bulging out of his head.

Fans of Eli Young Band pulled off one of the greatest Showdown upsets of all time on Tuesday. The group’s new single ‘Say Goodnight’ topped Taylor Swift‘s brand new single from her upcoming ‘Red’ album, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’ That makes it three in a row for the Texas foursome’s love ballad. Two more and it will be retired to the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.
Last night, the Eli Young Band and newcomer Chelsea Bain traded blows until the final minutes of the Showdown on Taste of Country Nights radio. Each artist rallied their fans to support their new song, but in the end, the new ballad from the Texas foursome notched just a few more votes than Bain’s ‘What if I.’
