The new face of country radio wears a studded belt and black nail polish

DJ Sinister

If you thought country music was becoming way too hip hop infused before, wait until you meet DJ Sinister. He's a new breed of country DJ and he's coming for your radio airwaves. 

Hold me … I'm scared. 

Now I'm not one to judge a book by its cover for the most part, but I have a feeling I may need to enlist my teen daughter and her understanding and acceptance of men who wear black nail polish with lipstick to match to navigate my way through this new phase of country music. 

Yeah, I bet the guy over at Saving Country Music is gonna have a field day with this. 

All joking aside, curiosity is going to end up getting the best of me and I imagine I'll be searching out DJ Sinister's show on the internet just to see what it is he's offering and how different it really is. What can I say? I guess in the end nosy will always win out over apprehension and fear when it comes to me. 

If you're curious too, you can read the full story of DJ Sinister and his foray into country radio after the jump.

Eric church

Whew. I was beginning to think I was the only one confused by Eric Church's new video for Give Me Back My Hometown. Turns out, though, even Eric's not really sure what's going on.

Eric tells The Country Vibe, “I don’t understand it either.”

Danielle Bradbery, Thomas Rhett preview CMT Listen Up! performance

Danielle Bradbery - The Heart of Dixie Music Video

"The Voice" season 3 winner and rising country singer Danielle Bradbery was onhand at the SEEN in Nashville on Monday (Jan. 27) to give a performance for an upcoming CMT Listen Up! feature. Her debut single, "The Heart of Dixie," is currently climbing at radio and is sitting pretty at No. 15 on the Mediabase radio airplay chart. The song's video is a vintage story about setting out to find something better in life. Bradbery has been named one of The Next Women of Country, and rightfully so.

Also, singer-songwriter Thomas Rhett, who has penned such hits as "1994" by Jason Aldean and "Round Here" by Florida Georgia Line," has carved out a niche among the fans. Last fall, he scored his first No. 1 single as an artist with "It Goes Like This," off his rowdy debut album of the same name.
