Runaway June - Wild West

William Michael Morgan

Vinyl

 

William Michael is looking for that big follow-up to "I Met a Girl," and this throwback song about a girl with classic appeal seems like a good candidate.

 

 

  

 

 


 

 

 

 

 


 
PREVIOUS WEEKS' TRACKS 

 

Runaway June - Wild West

Runaway June

Wild West

 

A laid-back look at love on an epic, technicolor scale, with harmonies that do it full justice.

 

 

  

Billy Currington - Wake Me Up

Billy Currington

Wake Me Up

 

He's had three #1's from his "Summer Forever" album and this uptempo look at late-night loneliness just might have what it takes to make it four.

 

 

  

Chase Bryant - Hell If I Know

Chase Bryant

Hell If I Know

 

If you're not sure whether ignorance can really be bliss, check out the latest from Chase, an upbeat ode to the joys of not knowing!

 

 

  

Danielle Bradbery-Sway

Danielle BradBery

Sway

 

Smooth, uplifting, R&B-tinged, with a vocal that invites a listener right on in. Good stuff.

 

 

  

Chase Rice - Three Chords and the Truth

Chase Rice

Three Chords and the Truth

 

A nicely done, highly believable ode to the power of music and all the aspects of our lives it touches.

 

 

  

Zac Brown Band - Roots

Zac Brown Band

Roots

 

No one sings home and hearth quite like the ZBB, and this bit of musical autobiography is a nice, heartfelt addition to the canon

 

 

  

Dylan Scott - Hooked

Dylan Scott

Hooked

 

He took "My Girl" straight to the top, and Dylan follows up with a song about infatuation that is pure, nonstop energy.

 

 

  

 
Brandon Lay - Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers

Brandon Lay

Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers

 

Brandon brings "The story of my youth" to life in a way that makes the personal universal. Lots of name-checking here, including "Kingsley Countdown radio"--nice touch, Brandon. Much appreciated.

 

 

  


 
Chris Stapleton - Broken Halos

Chris Stapleton

Broken Halos

 

The sound is somewhere between acoustic Springsteen and Outlaw country, with the powerful pipes and gritty authenticity that is Chris Stapleton.

 

 

  

Joe Nichols - Never Gets Old

Joe Nichols

Never Gets Old

 

A smooth, laid-back look at life and love from a master of the comfortable-as-good-cowboy-boots country.

 

 

  

 



Little Big Town - When Someone Stops Loving You

Little Big Town

When Someone Stops Loving You

 

It was one of magical moments of the recent CMT Music Awards. Jimi's chance to shine is a heartbreak song with those patented harmonies shimmering all over the chorus.

 

 

  

 


 

FT - Lindsay Ell - Waiting On You

Lindsay Ell

Waiting On You

 

Soulful, bluesy, sultry--all the things we've come to expect from Lindsay, wrapped up in a rhythm sure to get you swaying.

 

 

  

 


 

Scotty McCreery - Five More Minutes

Scotty McCreery

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.

 

 

  

 


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.

 

 

  

Willie Nelson - He Won’t Ever Be Gone

Willie Nelson

He Won’t Ever Be Gone

 

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