This March 22, 2013 photo shows members of Lady Antebellum, from left, Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott  in Nashville, Tenn. Even though a cowboy hat sighting on Fifth Avenue is still pretty rare, country music has made an important move into New York City.  Country has its own radio station in the nation's largest market for the first time in 17 years. WNSH-FM, which calls itself "NASH 94.7," began broadcasting in January and its operators say it has exceeded expectations for its first few months on the air.  For country musicians, the news gets a big yee-haw. "I feel proud for country music," said Dave Haywood of Lady Antebellum. "It shows that you cannot deny where country music is in today's overall music world." (Photo by Donn Jones/Invision/AP)
