"Counting Stars," one of the newest songs by the band One Republic, has turned out to be an enormous hit for them. With over 140 million views as of now on YouTube's Vevo channel and the number three spot on Billboard's hot 100 list, it seems this song will be staying with us a little longer...
Just 24 hours after the biggest night in country music, three country artists received big honors at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards. Joining rock greats like U2 and Journey, country stars Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Taylor Swift received acclaim at the 8th annual awards, which were held at New York’s Roosevelt Hotel.
Billboard has shown a great deal of love to Taylor Swift by honoring her as its latest Woman of the Year.
Swift, 21, has been recognized before by this prestigious music industry trade, receiving titles for Top Country Artist, Top Country Album and Top Billboard 200 Artist. But this new recognition makes her the youngest artist ever to earn the honor.
