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.

 

 

  

 

 


 

 

 

 

 


 
PREVIOUS WEEKS' TRACKS 

 

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.

 

 

  

 

Shania Twain - Life's About To Get Good

Shania Twain

Life's About To Get Good

 

Shania's back with an anthem of determination in the face of pain. It's a sweeping production that fits in well with the body of work that's made her country's all-time biggest-selling female artist.

 

 

  


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.

 

 

  

 

Gretchen Wilson - Summertime Town

Gretchen Wilson

Summertime Town

 

A summertime song with a twist, a little more laid back than some of Gretchen's work, but with those fine and recognizable pipes front and center.

 

 

  

 

Glen Campbell -Everybodys Talkin

Glen Campbell

Everybody's Talkin’

 

Glen's last project, Adios, consists of some of his favorite songs, including this Fred Neil-penned classic, one of the more poignant tracks you'll hear this year.

 

 

  

 

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. 

 

 

  


 

Devin Dawson - All On Me

Devin Dawson

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

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.

 

 

  

 

 
Jerrod Niemann—God Made A Woman

Jerrod Niemann

God Made A Woman

 

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

 

 

   


 


 

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.

 

  

 

 

Brook Eden—Act Like You Don’t

Brook Eden

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.
