MySpace has become a major factor in the success of artists. Country artists have taken advantage of the audience of music fans on the community site by sharing quality music with users. Some artists have built the early part of their careers entirely by using the networking site. These successful artists put forth a genuine effort to connection and form relationships with their adoring fans. As the importance of MySpace became apparent in the music world, the biggest stars in country music began working on improving their pages.
Today, nearly all country artists have a great MySpace page. The most amazing pages have features that allow fans to listen to the artists’ best music, share information with friends, watch exclusive videos, and much more.
Here are a few of the most amazing MySpace pages…
25 Amazing Country Artist MySpace Pages
Site: Joe Nichols MySpace
Joe Nichols‘ MySpace page is huge. The top graphic surprised me when I first saw it. There is no doubt that the page belongs to Nichols. I actually thought I had gone to his official website on accident. You need to scroll down a little bit to get to the songs, tour info, but that’s alright. This is an awesome MySpace page. The creative is outstanding…just like Nichols’ music.
Site: Taylor Swift MySpace
The queen of MySpace, Taylor Swift built her fanbase early in her career by working nonstop on building relations with fans via MySpace. The effort worked and Taylor Swift earned herself a marketing degree from the school of hard knocks. Now she’s the biggest star in country music. And her MySpace page is still rocking.
Site: Jason Aldean MySpace
Jason Aldean is the cool guy in country music today. He wears dark colors and chains. He has a little biker edge to him. There is also a soft side to the rising country star. He’s a proud Dad. The music he makes is a great mix of hard rocking, foot stomping songs along with smooth romantic ballads. The design of Jason Aldean’s MySpace page fits that image perfectly. From the picture in the header to the black design background, this MySpace page lets fans know what Jason Aldean is all about.
Site: Bryan White MySpace
Bryan’s page features a true background image. The music player isn’t pushed down as it is on some artist sites. The important links are included: Website, Twitter, Facebook, and iTunes. The color scheme fits the dust bowl theme. The creative fits the feel of the music perfectly.
Site: Miranda Lambert MySpace
The badass-ness of Miranda Lambert oozes from the header photo in her MySpace page. Miranda is a critically acclaimed, award winning artist today. Her MySpace page encourages her die-hard fans to continue voting for her in upcoming awards. It’s a great way to make it easy for your adoring fans to show how much they care by sharing important information and links on your page. Miranda’s MySpace page is all about sharing important content – songs, videos, tour info, etc. – with fans. The page is great.
Site: Blake Shelton MySpace
Blake Shelton is the good ‘ol boy of the country world. He kids with his fans on Twitter. He records and releases hilarious videos on You Tube and he also releases great country music. Blake has always seemed to have an interest in connecting with his fans as much as possible so it makes sense that he has one of the most amazing MySpace pages in the business. The design is great and the functionality is wonderful.
Site: Dierks Bentley MySpace
I Don’t know why Dierks Bentley wanted to look like a ghost for the new photos to promote his first bluegrass album, but I kind of like it. His MySpace page is looking great these days. It is definitely – as sheriff Buford T. Justice said – an attention getter. The orange on the black and gray really sets off the creative. It’s a great design for the creative rising star.
Site: Kenny Chesney MySpace
Kenny Chesney seems to succeed at everything he does. It took him awhile to find his niche in country music. In fact, it took about 10 years of releasing music before Kenny broke out and became the superstar he is today. His MySpace page keeps right up with his reputation as the best in the business. The creative captures everything that is Kenny Chesney. The images are reminiscent of the islands and the trailer for Kenny’s latest video is perfectly displayed. A great page.
Site: Jessica Harp MySpace
Half of The Wreckers – Jessica Harp – has now set out on her own. Her voice is country to the core and with the right songs she’ll have a long and successful career. Jessica’s MySpace page instantly lets you know her personality the moment you first open the page. From the colors to the designs, this page has everything to do with Jessica Harp. And that’s exactly what fans want.
Site: Alan Jackson MySpace
A legend in country music, Alan Jackson admittedly had no idea he even had a MySpace page. His daughters had to let him know that his marketing team had created a pretty cool page for old dad. Alan Jackson has been creating some of the best country music for over twenty years and he’s still going strong. With a strong team behind him he’s even finding success with the changing times. It’s a key to having longevity in any career: have a strong team around you that stays up to date on how things are changing around you.
Site: Brad Paisley MySpace
Brad Paisley has been on one of the biggest rolls in country music history of late. He had a string of 10+ #1 hits in a row before it snapped with a couple recent #2 hits. This summer, Paisley is back with his new smash hit Water. The song is the creative inspiration for the latest design on his MySpace page. The page is eye-catching and the changing design to correspond with his latest singles keeps fans interested.
Site: James Otto MySpace
James Otto found success in country music with the smash hit Just Got Started Loving You. He’s struggled to capture the same magic again, but he continues recording and releasing music as he works his way back to the top of the charts. His style is unique and so is his MySpace page. The page is unlike others in country music and that’s what makes Otto stand out not only on MySpace, but in country music.
Site: Tim McGraw MySpace
Tim McGraw has always seemed like the coolest guy in country music. In fact, he’s the Brad Pitt of country music. Tim McGraw is married to country’s sweetheard, Faith Hill and he has more hits than most artists ever dream of when they’re first starting out. Sometimes all you need are a few cool pictures to make a page standout and that’s one of the reasons Tim McGraw’s MySpace page is amazing.
Site: Lady Antebellum MySpace
A huge image from the cover of your latest smash album and a few links to the most important related content and that’s all you need for a great web page. Lady Antebellum gives their fans what they want on their MySpace page. A huge header image, video, images, and music. It’s all there on this excellent page.
Site: Carrie Underwood MySpace
It’s no surprise that the creative Carrie Underwood has a great MySpace page. The header image matches Carrie’s latest album cover. The video of Carrie discussing her new single is right in the header as well. If a fan still needs to buy her great album there is no doubt about how to do it.
Zac Brown Band
Site: Zac Brown Band MySpace
Zac Brown and his band are known for their perfect music. The Zac Brown Band puts on a hell of a show as evidenced by their rocking performance of The Devil Went Down to Georgia on the CMAs. For a band that is so technically sound and creative with their music, it’s no surprise the rest of their material follows suit. Their MySpace page fits their theme as a band. The current goal of their page is to raise awareness for US soldiers living in other countries.
Site: Uncle Kracker MySpace
Uncle Kracker is nearing the top twenty on the country charts with his single Smile. The cover image on his latest album matches perfectly with the big image on his MySpace page. The design flows through the entire page and it’s aesthetically pleasing. The image doesn’t always seem to match the themes of Kracker’s songs, but that’s alright. Fans know that he’s a bit of a bad ass.
Little Big Town
Site: Little Big Town MySpace
I had to include Little Big Town because their header features rotating images. It’s a cool feature that I’m sure lots of artists use, but it was the first time I’d seen it. It’s an innovative way to make a page stand out just a little bit more. In the business of attention, any extra creativity is necessary for success.
Eli Young Band
Site: Eli Young Band MySpace
The Eli Young Band hasn’t had a huge hit yet on the country charts. A few of their songs have made it into the top 40. My personal favorite is Always The Love Songs. The guys do have a hit on their hands with the current design of their MySpace page. It’s unique, fun, and engaging.
Love and Theft
Site: Love and Theft MySpace
After the closure of Lyric Street Records, Love and Theft appear out of a recording contract for the time being. These talented guys are sure to find a home soon though since they’re ultra talented and have a growing fanbase. Their MySpace page is great. Hopefully the page is maintained and continues looking great as they transition to the next stage of success.
Site: Rascal Flatts MySpace
The guys in Rascal Flatts are entering their tenth year as country superstars. The group has sold millions of records, headlined sold out tours, and had more hits than you can count. Not a bad run for a group that sometimes isn’t considered country. The guys have a great MySpace page to go along with their unique sound and great music. Gary LeVox has one of the best voices in the business. Hopefully these guys stick around for a long time to come. Here again is an example of a band utilizing their creative to make it easy for their die-hard fans to vote for them in an upcoming award show.
Site: Josh Turner MySpace
The deep-voiced singer is one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry and his career is hot right now. Josh Turner has racked up a string of consistent hits. He seems to get better with each album release. Even though Josh is a traditionalist, his MySpace page takes advantage of the all the available features to make the page engaging for fans.
Site: Chris Young MySpace
Chris Young is fresh off his second #1 hit in a row. The Nashville Star winner is finally coming into his own after a few years of struggling to find his place in country music. Hot off the success of two singles, Chris Young is re-releasing the song Voices. His MySpace page header does an amazing job of promoting his new initiative. You have to check it out to see all the details.
Site: SHeDaisy MySpace
The girls of SHeDaisy are known for their edgy, fun songs. Their MySpace page design utilizes a simple feel with some great images. I love simple and white so that’s why I included this page in this list.
Site: Jake Owen MySpace
Jake Owen seems to be one of today’s artists that utilizes technology the most to enhance his connection with fans. His MySpace page is no exception. He’s currently using the header space to promote his great new single Tell Me. Jake Owen has a great relationship with his fans and as that fanbase grows he’ll find himself with a long and successful career in country music.
