The last hour of voting during the finals of March Bandness was frenzied, to say the least. Thousands of fans of Alabama and the Charlie Daniels Band cast a ballot in the waning minutes. The boys from Fort Payne, Ala. were trailing until the end, when they surged ahead and took the title of Best Country Band of All Time.
Women continue to rule the Taste of Country Top 10 Video Countdown. For a third straight week, a video for a song sung by a female topped the weekly countdown. It was Carrie Underwood's 'Two Black Cadillacs' last week, and prior to that, 'American Beautiful' by the Henningsens. Can new clips by Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton or Eric Church best the country superstar? It's up to fans to decide the weekly Top 10.

The 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards aren't scheduled to air until April 7, but we already know some of the top acts that have won. In a special announcement on Friday (March 22), the ACMs revealed the winners of some of the special off-camera awards, including huge stars like Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean and Blake Shelton.
The 2013 ACMs just wouldn't be complete without performances from the hottest names in country music, and the Academy of Country Music has just announced new additions to the exciting performance lineup, including Kenny Chesney and Taylor Swift.
Thompson Square were going to give it one more shot and then move on to something else. The married duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson say they had one more showcase as a duo lined up, and if that didn't work out, well ... fans would never know hit songs like 'Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not' or 'If I Didn't Have You.' Fortunately that performance led to a deal with Stoney Creek Records.
Tim McGaw's 'Superstar Summer Night' is shaping up to be one star-studded event, thanks to a continually evolving lineup. New additions to the already all-star lineup include Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley and Lady Antebellum. But it's not just country acts that are going to rock out with McGraw. Pitbull, the Cuban pop star known for his addictive Latin dance jams and 'hip-pop' tracks, is also newly slated to perform.
Hillary Scott shows us her wild side in this new video from Lady A. I'm sure we have all had nights like this at one point in time in our lives, right? It is pretty funny to watch though, Hillary has always kind of come off as a good girl, so to see here like this makes for a good laugh.
