We have a rule at For The Country Record. We don’t gossip or discuss the stars’ personal lives unless it has a profound impact on the music they are making, and therefore requires joint analysis. In this case, however, not only does the divorce of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton impact their own music, but the country music industry as a whole, to the point where immediately following the announcement (yesterday – July 20 – just after 1pm ET) Twitter was abuzz with discussion.

Miranda Lambert ‘Smokin’ and Drinkin’’ – Single Review

Miranda P

Miranda Lambert has released “Smokin’ and Drinkin’” as her latest single from her fifth studio album ‘Platinum’. It was rumored that the song would be her next single after “Somethin’ Bad”, when she performed it on the CMAs with Little Big Town. But, for reasons unknown, “Little Red Wagon” became Miranda’s third single instead. As far as I’m concerned, I think they had it right the first time around. For me, “Smokin’ and Drinkin’” is a cooler weather song, while “Little Red Wagon” would have been a better summer song.

Dear Country Radio: Is Lettuce Really The Best Part Of A Salad Anyway?

I read an article in Country Aircheck last night, where prominent radio consultant Keith Hill advises his clients (aka radio stations) not only to not play female artists back-to-back, but to even further lower the amount they play female artists at all. For those of you who don’t listen to country radio or pay attention to the charts, let me tell you the amount they play female artists is already criminally low. In fact, in 2014 only 18% of the top 100 songs were female-voiced. Hill argues that playing too many female artists will result in lower ratings. As you can expect, Twitter subsequently blew up, referring to the following quote as #SaladGate.

The 57th Annual Grammy Awards – Winners! +recap

It was a night of performances and music celebration that nearly reached the four hour mark just on the main telecast; the pre-telecast, or the “premiere ceremony” as it is now called – lasted for around three hours and the red carpet was active for about six. In all, the academy honoured artists of all shapes, sizes and genres; not least of all country, Americana and roots music, which was much the talk of social media. With early winners (and losers) announced during the premiere ceremony in Best Country Song, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Duo/Group Performance, as well as all of the other folk and roots categories, it was left to the anticipated Best Country Album award to light up the main stage. Still, country had plenty of influence during the show, as Miranda Lambert performed ‘Little Red Wagon’, Eric Church performed ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’, and Brandy Clark shone on the mid-audience stage with Dwight Yoakam on her beautiful ballad ‘Hold My Hand’. Showing up most of the other vocalists on the night, let’s hope that the exposure leads her to the fame and industry standing that she deserves. When it came to the mainstream awards, Sam Smith absolutely cleared up with many touting him as the male Adele (seriously, think about it, how similar?! It’s scary), picking up awards for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and more. Below are all the country and roots winners. Enjoy!
