It was a meeting made in country music fan heaven as Taylor Swift teamed with not one but two of country's biggest male heartthrobs - Tim McGraw and Keith Urban - at the 2013 CMA Music Festival this week in Nashville.

Amazon, the online retailer, recently posted 14 original "TV pilots" on the Web for public viewing and reviewing. In an instant, and before a single show has officially debuted, it has established a brand.
