There’s nothing we love more than having [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sara Evans[/lastfm] back in the country game alongside fellow notable names as [mp3com-artist]Martina McBride[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Carrie Underwood[/mp3com-artist]. And with ‘Girl Power’ taking over CMT.com’s High 5, it’s a refreshing sight to see. See which video took the number 1 spot this week on CMT.com.
5. Jason Aldean “Dirt Road Anthem”
“Dirt Road Anthem” has held pretty high all summer long on the country charts and though it’s dipped in and out of the CMT.com High 5, it’s apparent that [mp3com-artist] Jason Aldean[/mp3com-artist] is anything but a fluke. This song has even crossed the threshold from the country charts and is holding steady at 20 on the Billboard.com Hot 100! Spending 20 weeks on the charts, could this also be the song that gets us from summer into fall?
“Yeah I’m chillin’ on a dirt road / Laid back swervin’ like I’m George Jones / Smoke rollin’ out the window / An ice cold beer sittin’ in the console / Memory lane up in the headlights / It’s got me reminiscing on them good times / I’m turnin’ off a real life drive and that’s right / I’m hittin’ easy street on mud tires”
4. Lauren Alaina “Like My Mother Does”
This American Idol runner-up has had some fierce competition with winner[mp3com-artist] Scotty McCreery[/mp3com-artist], both fighting for country super stardom at the same time, but it seems Lauren‘s doing a great job keeping her place in the country world. As one of the most watched video this week, this ballad for Mom can’t help but warm your heart while listening to Lauren’s soulful voice.
“When I love / I give it all I got / Like my mother does / When I’m scared / I bow my head and pray / Like my mother does / When I feel weak and unpretty / I know I’m beautiful and strong / Because I see myself / Like my Mother does”
3. Brad Paisley ft Carrie Underwood “Remind Me”
It’s been a month that [mp3com-artist]Brad Paisley[/mp3com-artist] has graced the CMT.com High 5 countdown and it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere anytime soon.
“Do you remember the way it felt / You mean back when we couldn’t control ourselves / Remind me, remind me”
2. Martina McBride “I’m Gonna Love You Through It”
Grab your tissues, this song will definitely make you teary eyed. Martina‘s newest video for “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” is a beautiful tribute to cancer survivorsand features [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sheryl Crow[/lastfm] as well as cancer activist Katie Couric. It’s a strong message to those family members who help these cancer stricken patients through the hard times. Prepare to get goosebumps!
“When you’re weak, I’ll be strong / When you let go, I’ll hold on / When you need to cry, I swear that I’ll be there to dry your eyes / When you feel lost and scared to death, like you can’t take one more breath / Just take my hand, together we can do this / I’m gonna love you through it”
1. Sara Evans “My Heart Can’t Tell You No”
This is [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sara Evans[/lastfm]’ second single from her highly anticipated album Stronger which topped the charts after a six-year hiatus. Thankfully, we can see the beautiful Sara all we want now that she’s back in the country game.
“My Heart Can’t Tell You No” is a song we can all relate to: that moment when you’re trying to get over someone and though you try with all your might to make your heart stop loving someone, it always takes the lead. Though your head says stay away, your heart can’t help but reach out for that person.
“No matter how I try to convince myself / This time I won’t lose control / One look in your blue eyes / And suddenly my heart can’t tell you no”
