As 2018 wraps up, The Boot is looking back at some of the best new music and biggest headlines of the year. To determine the five biggest stories of each month, The Boot's staff looked at website traffic; the featured stories received the most visitors throughout the month in which they broke.

In November of 2018, Carrie Underwood revealed the sex of her baby, Garth Brooks shared a special song for Trisha Yearwood, and Keith Urban received a well-earned honor -- and that was just in one night, at the CMA Awards!

What happened on the other 29 days of the month? A big star called out country radio, while an equally big name revealed a different tour than fans may have expected for 2019.
