Kacey Musgraves

Dime Store Cowgirl

   What "Mississippi Girl" was to Faith Hill, "Dime Store Cowgirl" is to Kacey--a bit of autobiography that sounds great through the speakers.



Cassadee Pope

I Am Invincible


The first single from her as-yet-unnamed second album is am empowerment anthem featuring some of the best and most powerful vocals to date from Cassadee.


Tyler Farr

Better In Boots


He calls it "a party anthem for girls," and Tyler's latest has got a beat and feel custom-designed for summer.



Ronnie Dunn

Ain't No Trucks In Texas


He's been working magic with his voice for 25 years now, and Ronnie Dunn is doing it again with his latest solo effort, a lonely lament in a league with some of his classic work.


Jerrod Niemann

Blue Bandana


One of our most musically adventurous artists namechecks the great festivals in this tale about a modern-day free spirit.



James Otto

Somewhere Tonight


One of country's biggest and best voices has a new deal on Blaster Records thanks to "Somewhere Tonight," which he released independently last year.


Andy Grammer with the Eli Young Band

Honey, I'm Good


One of the catchiest things you will hear all year. Andy took this to the Top Ten of the pop charts last year, and this version brings the EYB on board.



David Nail

Night's On Fire


This enjoyable and upbeat ode to summertime love is the leadoff single from David's upcoming fourth album.


AlanJackson-Jim And Jack And Hank

Alan Jackson

Jim And Jack And Hank


"It's a fun little uptempo tune about the same ole story--girl leaves guy and this time he's not going to be heartbroken." So says Alan, and who are we to argue?


Striking Matches

Miss Me More


They met in a guitar seminar at Belmont University and have gained enviable critical acclaim, with six of their songs being used on TV's "Nashville." This tune captures their energy and terrific harmonies.


Kelsea Ballerini



The first woman to hit #1 out of the chute since Carrie Underwood is back with an upbeat, sassy come-on that's probably worth betting on as a follow-up smash.


A Thousand Horses

(This Ain't No) Drunk Dial


After a long, slow climb, things have exploded for 1000 Horses. Their follow-up to the chart-topping "Smoke" is a tuneful bit of late-night phone drama.

Rainey Qualley-Me And Johnny Cash

Rainey Qualley

Me and Johnny Cash


Rainey supplies plenty of attitude with a song that does justice to a great country name-check.



Dierks Bentley



It's the title track to his latest album, a centerpiece of this summer's tour, and a great piece of uplifting music from the pen of Travis Meadows, who wrote Jake Owen's "What We Ain't Got," along with Steve Moakler.


The Cadillac Three

White Lightning


Just how hard and fast can love hit? Let Jaren, Kelby and Neil count the ways in their raw and rootsy style.


Steven Tyler

Love Is Your Name


The man who made his mark fronting Aerosmith brings his formidable pipes to Nashville, singing a song written by Eric Paslay and Lindsey Lee. If there is a pocket between his rock legacy and modern-day country, Steven seems to have found it.


Craig Campbell

Tomorrow Tonight


Craig's got a new label and a powerful single that's got romantic confidence written all over it.

ashley clark greyhound

Ashley Clark



Ashley was part of his family's band, he's toured with Carrie Underwood, and he's working with no less a producer than Mutt Lange, so expect big things from this steamy song about missing a loved one.


Randy Houser

We Went


He's on a great roll, with four hits from his "How Country Feels" album, and one of country's premier vocalists is back with a song about tearing it up in a small town.



Lee Brice

That Don't Sound Like You


Lee continues to explore new feels and themes, and after six Top tens in a row, there's every reason to expect this moody bit of intrigue to do well.



Toby Keith

35 mph Town


Toby and longtime collaborator Bobby Pinson penned this powerfully downbeat and tightly written tune about a town gone sour.



I Love This LIfe


Chris and Preston continue to tear it up on tour, they continue to turn out hits as songwriters, and their latest as artists is a fresh ode to small towns and good times.
