Jon Pardi’s debut album ‘Write You a Song’ employs no tricks, gimmicks or novelties to sell a straight-forward brand of country music. The best songs are rowdy, Bakersfield-influenced jams that introduce the California-raised singer as someone whose tour you'll want to follow closely in 2014. Even the love songs come with a sharp edge, something that defines him as an artist.

Lucy Hale Takes an Imperfect Road Trip in ‘You Sound Good to Me’ Video

Lucy Hale's debut single 'You Sound Good to Me,' an ebullient slice of twangy pop-tinted country, comes with a fitting video. The singer (and 'Pretty Little Liars' star) hits the road with a crop of friends in a classic yellow convertible, enjoying the sun in her face and the wind in hair. But this not an idyllic road trip.

There's an art to giving a great interview, and not every country star has mastered it. In fact, most fall somewhere between guarded and nervous when they pick up the phone or agree to talk about their lives and music face-to-face.
