Lauren Alaina- Scotty McCreery Deja Vo


Lauren Alaina

This week’s top 20 video countdown on GAC looks a little like the results of the final episode of last season’s American Idol. The number one fan voted video of the week is “The Trouble With Girls” by McCreery and the number two video is “Georgia Peaches” by Alaina. Lauren’s latest video (Georgia Peaches) pulled through in a big way because it wasn’t even charted last week.

#3 “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore” Alan Jackson

#4 “Tough” Kellie Pickler

#5 “I Don’t Want This Night To End” Luke Bryan

Make Perfect Sweet Tea

Sweet tea is a delicacy in the South, but sometimes it’s hard to perfect. It’s difficult to avoid mistakes if you’re new to cooking tea and even if you’ve made it for years, you might notice it’s a little off. … Continue reading

How To Get That Classic ‘Country Girl’ Style


In the country, your outfit only expresses a hint of who you are. Country girls are multidimensional people, they might go to tea parties and church but also hunt boar and frequent the dirt track. Having an array of events on your itinerary means you have to be flexible in clothing options.

Women in large cities are tied to a certain lifestyle, that apparently calls for heels and high fashion-all the time. (Personally, Ive never understood that. How do you run from a mugger in heels?) While women in the South appreciate fashion and designer clothes they tend to stick to more classic versatile styles. A swan around the waist or a plastic machine gun on the shoulder doesn’t exactly make the boys swoon. It’s too much work and psychological turmoil to wear clothes that must be ‘interpreted’. Fashion icons are women with style that never fades. People will always appreciate ladies like Audrey Hepburn, Jacki O, and Sophia Loren.

What is classic country style? It all depends on your personality. Sometimes it’s romantic florals, seersucker or lace. Other times it’s the perfect pair of jeans and a concert Tee. Mostly, it’s finding outfits that are beautiful and functional at the same time.

Below, we’ve featured outfits that can be worn for both casual and dressy occasions.

Miranda Lambert, #NYFW Nashville Style


Revolution (Miranda Lambert album)

Image via Wikipedia

Miranda Lambert is Country music’s newest female icon. She’s won countless awards over the past couple of years including “Female Vocalist of the Year” at the CMA’s  (2010). Miranda became so popular that her wedding (to Blake Shelton) was covered by People Magazine. With all the fame and photo’s we’ve been able to get a good glimpse at Miranda’s fashion sense…but as many of you know it’s a little 2 sided.

Miranda, like many Southern girls, has a sweet side and…a not so sweet side? It’s hard to pick just one team when you were raised with church, manners, and morals but still have that aching desire to be independent and strong. Miranda’s certainly polite and classy but she could probably whip out some sort of Taebo and kill everybody in the room. (At least in my imagination)

We had to create 2 pieces for Miranda, the sweet side…and the girl that kicked your butt in high school side.

Blake Shelton on The Cover of ‘Rolling Stone’


Rolling Stone Magazine

The judges of NBC’s The Voice have grown ridiculously in fame since the start of the season. Not only has Blake Shelton well surpassed 1 million twitter fans but now he’s on the cover of  Rolling Stone. It’s rare that country music stars make the cover of a rock magazine but Blake’s charm, whit and good looks have made him a Superstar.

If you’ve never seen The Voice, it resembles shows like American Idol. Contestants with vocal talent audition to be voted as the next musical Great. What makes The Voice completely different is that the auditions are blind. The 4 teams (Blake, XTINA, CeeLo, Adam) have to select and convince the singer to be on their team. Each Judge must select 12 contestants to form an unstoppable team. The best of the 4 teams takes home the trophy. Last year, (Season 1) Adam Levine took home the Grand Prize.

If you’re an avid fan of The Voice, but missed an episode, take a look at each teams lineup:

 

Team: BLAKE

Brian Fuente, Erin Willett, Gwen Sebastian, Jermain Paul, Jordis Unga, Rae Lynn. Fan favorites seem to be Gwen, Jermaine, and Jordis.

Team: XTINA

Chris Mann, Jesse Campbell, Geoff McBride, Lindsey Pavoa, Moses Stone, and The Line

Team: CEE LO/PUURFECT

Angie Johnson, Erin Martin, Jamar Rogers, James Massone, Juliet Simms, Sarah Golden

Fan favs: Angie Johnson, Erin Martin. Erin’s audition was a top selling song on itunes overnight.

 

Team: ADAM

Angel Taylor, Chris Cauley, Katrina Parker, Kim Yarbrough, Nahan Parrett, Pip, Tony Lucca

Fan favs: The beautiful-Angel Taylor and the guy who stole the show-Chris Cauley from ATL.

Who is Katie Armiger?


Katie Armiger

Unless you keep up with GAC’s top 20 videos you may not know Katie Armiger. Katie is a 19 year old rising star from Texas. She’s an independent artist who gained her fame from the fan voted video charts on Great American Country TV. Katie has recently had back-to-back #1 videos on the GAC Top 20 Countdown with “Best Song Ever” and her newest single “I Do, But Do I.”

In her heart she’s already made it big, she’s had a coveted debut at the famed Grand Ole Opry. She’s also earned openings for Country Music Superstars like Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and Kellie Pickler. Her third and latest album Confessions of a Nice Girl  (Cold River Records) listed her highest debuts at #6 on Amazon, and #11 on iTunes.

Katie had a passion for Music since she was a small child. When she was only 10 years old she learned how to write music. At age 14 she discovered she had actual talent when she won a singing competition back home. After her big win she started her punishing ‘dance’ with music row. Luckily, that fight paid off, she’s on the verge of becoming the next big female Country Artist.

Katie has a strong traditional country sound. Her voice has been described as mature beyond her years, rivaling her icons- Martina McBride and Sarah Evans . She also has beauty tucked in her war chest.  She’s won titles like a #2 spot on Country Weekly’s ‘Country’s Most beautiful Women’ and last May she was voted the #1 Hottest Bachelorette by the same magazine.

Katie’s full to the brim with talent, looks, and gumption. In a day when stars take the easier road with reality TV talent shows, Katie proves she has what it takes to be a star. She took her fight to the streets of Nashville, the good ole fashion way. Katie’s rising fame is a true testament of her hard work and musical talent.
