Despite a few heartbreaking stories and one or two emotional country artists, Taste of Country readers learned that the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is a happy place during Day 1 of the 2014 ToC/St. Jude webathon. That was message from no fewer than five country stars, plus the families of two former patients.
For 25 years, country radio has stepped up to raise money for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and on Thursday and Friday (March 6 and 7), Taste of Country is joining that effort. Head writer Billy Dukes explains how artists like Dierks Bentley and Sheryl Crow jumped at a chance to help with the first-annual webathon, and how you can participate.
Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum is almost as passionate about golf as he is country music. The singer says if he had to pick between a hole in one or a No. 1 single ('Compass' is currently in the Top 5), he'd take the radio hit. But in a strange way, the two passions merged last summer.
Jett Williams -- the 61-year-old daughter of country legend Hank Williams, Sr. and a country singer herself -- was arrested on Tuesday morning (Feb. 25) in Lebanon, Tenn. on charges of driving under the influence.
Turning a personal tragedy into a hit record is tricky, and not just for all the normal reasons that it's difficult to make a song into a hit.

Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes considers three powerful songs and three artists who dealt with the personal tragedies that inspired them in very different ways.
When Hayden Panettiere, star of ABC's hit show 'Nashville,' moved to Music City, she found herself pleasantly surprised. Instead of living a life surrounded by paparazzi, the actress and singer discovered normalcy in Middle Tennessee.

The 17-year-old songstress is the youngest contestant to win NBC's 'The Voice,' her single 'The Heart of Dixie' is on its way into the Top 10, and she's spent the last few months on tour with the legendary Brad Paisley.
