Country music is front and center with the reality singing competition The X-Factor on Fox TV.  Just this morning I was asked again, by someone who is not necessarily a country music fan and she asked me about Tate Stevens.  She was raving about how Simon Cowell had said that Tate was going to be a country music star!

Other big names in country music are taking note too.  Randy Houser, Big & Rich, and Darius Rucker are just a few country stars that have reached out to Tate to offer support and encouragement.

Support like that and 'real talent' has left Tate in either the first or second place with voting for the past few weeks.

How about you?  Are you Watching the X-Factor and do you think Tate could have what it takes to win?
