Country Music fans are at a crossroads with the release of Taylor Swift’s new album “1989” which is about as country as… well it’s not country at all. The new Taylor is more an of “Urban Pop” Princess similar to the likes of Katy Perry, and Selena Gomez. In fact, she makes Shania Twain look like Loretta Lynn.
So who’s behind the vision of ” 1989?” Producers Max Martin and Shellback known for creating monstrous hits for pop megastars Britney Spears, Usher, and Christina Aguilera have crafted this album to do the same for Swift.

But will this new sound turn away her diehard Country fans for good? Should Taylor Swift stick to Pop Music or make a return to Country?

Leave us a comment! In the meantime, check out some of her biggest hits over the years.

Florida Georgia Line are having the time of their lives. They just garnered their first #1 album with Anything Goes which sold more than 197,000 copies in its first week.

This week they released a new lyric video Sun Daze putting a whole new meaning behind “Sunday Funday.”

After so much hard work and success, we’re happy to see these guys having a good time.

Florida Georgia Line  “Sun Daze” Lyrics

I’m gonna wear my flip-flops and
I’m gonna play some flip-cup and
Rock a little bit of hip-hop and Haggard and Jagger
And throw a 20 on the corn hole game
If I’m lucky yeah I might get laid
The way that it’s going, the keg gon’ be floating

All I wanna do today is wear my favorite shades and get stoned
Work a little less, play a little more
That’s what this day is for
And all I wanna do is lace my J’s and lace some Jack in my Coke
Work on my laid back, ain’t nothin’ wrong
With gettin’ my sun daze on, gettin’ my sun daze on

Girl you know you’re the life of my party
You can stay and keep sippin’ Bacardi
Stir it up as we turn on some Marley
If you want you can get on Harley
I sit you up on a kitchen sink
Stick the pink umbrella in your drink
The way that we’re feeling we gone by this evening

All I wanna do today is wear my favorite shades and get stoned
Work a little less, play a little more
That’s what this day is for
And all I wanna do is lace my J’s and lace some Jack in my Coke
Work on my laid back, ain’t nothin’ wrong
With gettin’ my sun daze on, gettin’ my sun daze on

All I wanna do today is wear my favorite shades and get stoned
Work a little less, play a little more
That’s what this day is for
And all I wanna do is lace my J’s and lace some Jack in my Coke
Work on my laid back, ain’t nothin’ wrong

With gettin’ my sun daze on, gettin’ my sun daze on

After 12 years since releasing the critically acclaimed album Up, Shania Twain revealed in a recent interview with the Las Vegas Sun, that she ready to get back into the studio.

“The success here in Las Vegas has given me a confidence that I have not had in years, even in past tours,” she said. “I really have been able to build up a lot more courage and a lot more confidence in myself. Yeah, I’m ready for more things now.”

Two-years in Vegas has given her the courage to stir up some new hits.

“Being with these giant crowds was very exciting, and it’s motivated me to carry on doing that,” she added.

Well Shania, we can’t wait to hear what’s in store! Are you excited about the new album? Leave us a comment!

Jason Aldean scored it big with “Burnin’ It Down.” The song has gone 1 for the 12th time and is featured on his new album, Old Boots, New Dirt.

But did you know this song was actually cowritten by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard? It was supposed to be a hit for the group, but they couldn’t release it for a another year.

Tyler Hubbard told ABC News Radio “The timing was tough on it. We were listening to it one day, and I think it was B.K. that said, ‘Hey dude, I think Jason would kill this song. We should try to give it to him, and at least let him hear it.’

And the next thing they knew, he was cutting it.

The duo praised Jason for his take on the song, and have since seen tremendous success on their own with the chart topping hit “Dirt” and latest single, “Sun Daze.”

They are currently special guests on Aldean’s Burn It Down Tour.
