Country music and America go together like sweet and tea. Hundreds of songs have been written to celebrate our freedoms as Americans, but only a few have the word “American” in the title. Which of the following seven songs is your favorite “American” country song?
America didn’t learn about the Band Perry until late 2009, but the sibling trio will be celebrating their 14th year together this October. Neil and Reid Perry started off backing up their older sister Kimberly before she let them join the band officially. Jump forward to 2012, where you’ll find that the 2011 CMA New Artist of the Year is the hottest thing in Nashville, having just notched a fourth straight Top 10 hit from their self-titled debut album.
A new name in radio begins with a familiar voice on Monday night, July 2. Taste of Country Nights will air nightly from 7PM to midnight on 34 country stations nationwide Monday through Friday.

Longtime duet partners Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn are on the same ballot for induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Both are nominated in the Songwriter/Artists category, but only one can be inducted. There’s no guarantee either will be picked, however.

News that the Supreme Court upheld the national healthcare mandate — dubbed Obamacare — has angered some, delighted others and left a few country artists worried about the future of the United States. Charlie Daniels was quick to speak his mind on Twitter Thursday morning.
He’s 27-years-old — a Capricorn with hazel eyes and a propensity for adding “Sir” or “Ma’am” to the end of sentences. Brantley Gilbert loves his fans, his mama and a Pit bull named Alley, who he rescued from abusive owners before one of his shows in Macon, Ga. Don’t let the soft southern accent or big heart fool you, however. Gilbert isn’t a pushover. He’ll fight for his family, his friends and his music when he has to. For these reasons, Taste of Country readers named the ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ hitmaker country music’s most eligible bachelor.

Blake Shelton begged, pleaded and insulted his fellow coaches to woo contestants during Monday night’s (Feb. 13) episode of ‘The Voice‘ on NBC. He added three new team members, including Erin Willett, a 22-year-old from Gaithersburg, Md.
