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.
Almost everything Jason Aldean touches turns to gold, and his new single 'When She Says Baby' will likely be no different. Very few of the singer's releases since 'Hicktown' in 2005 have failed to sell at least 500,000 singles. He has his finger on the pulse of what mainstream country audiences are craving.
Taste of Country is your source for behind-the-scenes highlights from the 2013 CMA Awards in Nashville. The interviews, the backstage reactions and the red carpet fashion show are all part of what you'll find in this collection of videos.
Tyler Farr finds love with his new single 'Whiskey in My Water.' It's the fourth from the 'Redneck Crazy' album, a collection that just hit stores last month. While he takes chances elsewhere on the project, this ballad plays it safe with a familiar storyline.
Willie Nelson's scratchy tenor and familiar guitar are the two constants on his new album of duets called 'To All the Girls.' The project is an enormous collection of female talent -- mostly country, but some not, most well-known, but a few still relatively unheard of. There's a pleasing variety, yet none steer too far from what Nelson has released in the last half-decade.
George Strait's new single 'I Got a Car' is another easy love story, just as he's done dozens of times before. It's a circle-of-life adventure revolving around a car, presumably the same car in each verse. Expect nothing out of the ordinary from this track from the 'Love Is Everything' album.
Justin Moore's big country voice shines during the final choruses of 'Lettin' the Night Roll,' the second single from 'Off the Beaten Path.' His loyal fans will recognize the performance, and fans of country music will recognize the story he tells.
'Crickets' is a fine way to describe Joe Nichols' new album. The singer aims for a relax-on-the-riverbank vibe with many of the mid-tempo cuts on this project. The album begins and ends with crickets ( literally), and in between it offers a fairly level ride.
Randy Travis' 'Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am' is a simple collection of covers from artists that inspired him. Merle Haggard is the most represented singer, with eight cuts influenced by or recorded by him at some point. Three of the first four are Haggard songs, with 'What Have You Got Planned Tonight Diana' being the one to remember.
Lady Antebellum have found a new direction for their blend of pop-flavored harmonies. 'Compass' walks into the forest of alt-bluegrass that's quickly growing in popularity. Heavy banjo and mandolin drive a foot-stomping beat as the group sings about staying true to one's heart.
Tyler Farr's first three singles are a fair representation of his debut album 'Redneck Crazy.' There's a little pain, a little heart and a little cray-cray. The singer relies on his unique voice, but nothing about the project feels self-indulgent.
