Neal McCoy’s New Single is Remake of “Kaw-Liga” [Video]

I first became familiar with the Hank Williams' country classic "Kaw-Liga" during our Goldie's Survivor contest.  One of the highlights of that series was our Longest Note Immunity Challenge, in which contestants were all forced to sing the same big note from the same big song and see who could hold it the longest.  While Martina McBride's "A Broken Wing" was a our go-to song, we did change it up occasionally and, one season, used "Kaw-Liga."  I loved that song.  The crowd loved it.  Our Goldie's Survivor contestants loved it.  And, guess what?  It's back!

Meet Striking Matches: Nashville’s Hottest New Duo [Audio]

The first time I met Justin Davis was backstage at The Grand Ole Opry.  He was entering the men's room as I was leaving it and I nearly knocked his face off with the door.  Hysterically, I didn't realize at the time that I was going to be interviewing Justin in a matter of minutes.  Yep!  He is one half of the up-and-coming duo Striking Matches.  And, last week, I had a chance to redeem myself with a follow-up visit to the Opry and a second interview with Justin and Sarah.  This time, thankfully, no one got a nose job from a swinging door and we were treated to an amazing live performance of Striking Matches' brand new single, "Trouble is as Trouble Does."  This is fantastic.  LISTEN!!

Local Musician Advances To Quarterfinal Round Of Drumoff

I'll just start this by saying that I may be a little bias about the guy I'm going to tell y'all about... Chris Lee. Chris is from Owensboro and just happens to be a fabulacious drummer! (Yes, I made up a word, ha!) I know this because I've heard Chris play hundreds of times and he plays in my band too! Turns out, I'm not the only one who thinks Chris is great...

The fine folks at Guitar Center in Evansville passed him thru to the quarter-final round of their national drum-off competition! So now, he's heading to Indianapolis!

Pop Star Jessie J Takes on Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” [Video]

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  But what happens when someone takes a song that you wrote, recorded and had a huge hit with . . . and just takes you to school on it?  That's exactly what has happened to Taylor Swift, courtesy of fellow pop diva Jessie J, who just tore into Taylor's smash "I Knew You Were Trouble" during a recent live performance on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.  This is a ridiculous master class in singing and Jessie completely reinvents Taylor's hit song.  This chick rocks!

Kelly Clarkson Sings New Version of “Don’t You Wanna Stay” [Video]

I've always wondered if professional singers get tired of singing the same songs over and over and over.  They have to, right?  Well, not if you're Kelly Clarkson, who took to Twitter last week to chat about a brand new version of her Jason Aldean duet "Don't You Wanna Stay."  Kelly is well-known for taking her popular songs and completely re-arranging and re-inventing them for her live concert performances.  And, she has worked her magic again.  Take a listen.  She has managed to turn a rip-roaring powerhouse duet into a haunting, desperate, solo performance.

Last year, country crooner Tate Stevens won The X Factor.  And, this year, it looks like we have another strong country contender in the hunt for the title and $5 million dollar grand prize.  Last week, Brandie Love of North Carolina stepped in front of the judges and blew them away with her rendition of "Up To The Mountain."  This girl is sensational.  I've heard a lot of versions of this song, but hers is my absolute favorite.  Your heart will break when you hear her pour her heartbreak and soul into this performance.  Check this out!
