Five More Minutes


The joys and pains of time and the importance of every single minute we have are the subject of this tender and poignant song by Scotty.











Lauren Alaina - Doin’ Fine

Lauren Alaina

Doin’ Fine


The success of "Road Less Traveled" was a victory for Lauren, for women in music, and for lyrics with real meaning. The follow-up is another highly personal song with a universal message, and with it, Lauren keeps proving that she's as important as she is popular.





Chris Janson - Fix A Drink

Chris Janson

Fix A Drink


Chris may be this generation's Brad Paisley, able to mix fun and serious, world affairs and romance, sometimes in the same song, which is exactly what he does here.




Josh Turner - All About You

Josh Turner

All About You


2016's "Hometown Girl" was his first hit in four years, but it was a big one! It looks like Josh has a solid follow-up with this catchy, backroad-country love song.

He Won’t Ever Be Gone


Willie is still Willie, and this terrific tribute to Merle Haggard is a great addition to the canon.

Daddy Had A Beer


One of Nashville’s terrific writers, Josh knows his way around a song—and around the beer that often serves as subject matter!

All On Me


You can hear the R&B influence Devin picked up during his California upbringing on this debut, and that's a very good thing.





Parmalee - Sunday Morning

The power of love is the subject of the latest from the quartet from South Carolina. Powerhouse sound sure to be a great moment live.

Preachin' To The Choir


It's a "Saturday night revival song" the guys fell in love with on first listen, and do they ever sell it.

She's With Me

Love for better or worse, in the good times and bad, is the subject of this terrific feel-good tune from the Brothers Rempel. 




canaansmith-Like You That Way

Canaan Smith

Like You That Way

 Hard not to like a smooth love song with the line "You're Miranda Lambert crazy and I like you that way." Canaan, who went all the way with "Love You Like That" in 2014, has another contender.

 Lots of us have been waiting for a new release from these three, and Jordan, Jonathan and Cassandra bring it big time with this bit of pure fun.
