He Won’t Ever Be Gone


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





Josh Thompson - Daddy Had A Beer

Josh Thompson

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! 











Jon Pardi - Heartache On The Dance Floor

Heartache On The Dance Floor


He's got two chart-toppers in a row under his belt, and Jon is on the dance floor this time out, under the spell of a "California dream" in a cool and upbeat song.





Devin Dawson - All On Me

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.

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.





A Thousand Horses - Preachin' To The Chior

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.

A reflective and compelling look at the redeeming power of love by one of country's unique voices.

 We've been waiting a good while for the latest from Charlie, and you can feel him stretching himself musically and lyrically on this adventurous single.

 Luscious harmonies, a singalong melody and the secret to happiness, all in a buoyant and enjoyable track. What's not to like?

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.




The Railers - 1159

The Railers 


 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.

Watered Down

 Trace is at his best when he's singing about life's biggest, most poignant moments, and he's found a great one here.




Brook Eden—Act Like You Don’t

Act Like You Don’t

 Sometimes you do know what you had when it's gone, and you're glad to be rid of him. Brook brings plenty of passion to this tale of warning from one woman to another.




Big and Rich—California

Big and Rich


 Tim McGraw loved it enough to cut it himself, but the single belongs to The Technicolor Cowboys, and they tinge their heartbreak with a terrific groove.




Carly Pearce—Every Little Thing

Every Little Thing

 She's toured with FGL and Hunter Hayes, and Carly is looking for that breakthrough country single with this arresting blend of passion and regret.

You’ll Accomp’ny Me

 Frankie tackles a Bob Seger classic, building the track from a smoldering beginning to a fiery conclusion.

What Ifs

 Two of music's strongest young voices combine in this uptempo plea for taking a chance in the face of doubt.
