Zac Brown Band
No one sings home and hearth quite like the ZBB, and this bit of musical autobiography is a nice, heartfelt addition to the canon
He took "My Girl" straight to the top, and Dylan follows up with a song about infatuation that is pure, nonstop energy.
Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers

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.

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.
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.
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

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.
