kaceymusgraves-dimestorecowgirl

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.

 

cassadeepope-iaminvincible

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.

 
tylerfarr-betterinboots

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.

 


 
PREVIOUS WEEKS' TRACKS 
 
ronniedunn-aintnotrucksintexas

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.

 
JerrodNiemann-bluebandana

Jerrod Niemann

Blue Bandana

   

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

 

jamesotto-somehweretonight

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.

 
andygrammer-Honeyimgood

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.

 

DavidNail-Nightsonfire

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?

 
strikingmatches-missmemore

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.

 
kelseaballerini-dibs

Kelsea Ballerini

Dibs

   

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.

 
Athousandhorses-This-Aint-No-Drunk-Dial

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-riser

Dierks Bentley

Riser

   

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.

 
 
thecadillacthree-whitelightning

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.

steventyler-loveisyourname

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.

 
craigcampbell-tomorrownight

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

Greyhound

   

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.

 
randyhouser-wewent

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.

 

leebrice-thatdontsoundlikeyou

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.

   

tobykeith-35mphtown

Toby Keith

35 mph Town

   

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

locash-ilovethislife

LOCASH

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.
