Our favorite time of year is now, as we gear up for the world’s largest free country music festival, the Downtown Hoedown, right in the heart of Detroit at Hart Plaza! You will see them live on Friday, May 13th, but check out what your Friday Downtown artists do behind the camera! See top music videos from your Friday night headliners and tell us what you are hoping to hear them perform!
This video for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Joe Nichols[/lastfm]’ “The Shape I’m In” is a feel good, touching, inspirational video and certainly a far cry from his hit “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off!” The video pays tribute to those in the military who were injured in battle and are making the most out of their lives. From his latest Greatest Hits From Joe Nichols album, watch “The Shape I’m In.”
Okay and just for fun, we’ll take you back to those wilder days. . .
“Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off”
Although he may be among country’s newest hot guys, “Lover, Lover” boy [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jerrod Niemann[/lastfm] says he hasn’t been immune to love-life troubles, including a bit of what you might call “continental drift.” The song “What Do You Want” is about getting over a break-up and how tough it can be when your ex still seems to be lingering in your life.
Jerrod Niemann’s “What Do You Want”
Frontman of Staind, Aaron Lewis has proudly and boldly stepped into the world of Country Music; a genre he was raised on, that shaped the very core of every track on his five song solo album, Town Line. The debut solo, “Country Boy” was released this past December and features a fiery fiddle lead from Charlie Daniels, a booming verse from George Jones and harmonies from Chris Young, marrying classic and modern country. If not already, you may just find yourself hooked after you watch “Country Boy.”
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sunny Sweeney[/lastfm] brings another heartbreak song, literally to the table with “From A Table Away.” Written from the standpoint of ‘the other woman’ this is one of those songs that will stick with you as it rises up the charts, as did [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Reba[/lastfm]‘s “Does He Love You” and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sugarland[/lastfm]’s “Stay.”
Get to know Sunny Sweeney! Watch Edwards & Lee’s backstage interview!
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Thompson Square[/lastfm]’s Keifer and Shawna Thompson have taken the country music world by storm with their now No. 1 song, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not,” and the feeling for some may indescribable, but not for Keifer. 99.5 WYCD’s Edwards & Lee had the opportunity to interview them in Vegas for the ACMs! Here’s what Keifer had to say about what it felt like to be at the ACMs AND have a No. 1 song. “It’s like taking a bath in cotton candy while being massaged by bunnies.” Hear the entire interview here!
“Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not?”
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chuck Wicks[/lastfm]’ “Hold That Thought” is probably the most beautifully done, tasteful video of foreplay via phone sex, that we have ever seen. Only Chuck Wicks could pull this off and have you rushing out to buy the album, Starting Now, released in 2009. See for yourself!
Women all over the country were swooning and wishing their man would see this video, while men all around shivered and related to how he felt when facing the future ‘daddy’ to ask permission. . .
