JASON ALDEAN & CARRIE UNDERWOOD – ‘IF I DIDN’T LOVE YOU’
Aldean’s 10th studio album is set to be released later this year, although there is no official release date as yet.
He has been teasing news of a duet on the album, and the mystery singer has now been revealed. It doesn’t get much better than Carrie Underwood sharing vocals.
The song was penned by Aldean’s band members Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy, along with John Morgan and Lydia Vaughan.
RYAN NELSON – ‘WASN’T THE TRUCK’
Ryan Nelson is set to release a new album ‘Two Trick Pony’ on 27th August, and ‘Wasn’t the Truck’ is the third pre-release from it.
It’s a song that he has been performing at Nashville songwriter rounds and it has gained a favourable reception at those live shows.
He’s from Jacksonville, Florida and has been based in Nashville since 2014.
ASHLAND CRAFT – ‘MAKE IT PAST GEORGIA’
It’s been a while since we caught up with Ashland Craft, who is just about to start an extensive tour in the US which will keep her out on the road until October.
She’s signed with Big Loud Records who are releasing her new album ‘Travelin’ Kind’ on September 3rd. The album, produced by Jonathan Singleton, has 11 songs, 9 of which were co-penned by Ashland Craft.
‘Make it Past Georgia’ is the first taster from the new album.
CHRIS YOUNG – ‘BREAK LIKE YOU DO’
Chris Young fans don’t have long to wait for the release of his new ‘Famous Friends’ album.
It’s set to be released on 6th August and ‘Break Like You Do’ is another pre-release track that he wrote with Chris DeStefano, Matt Rogers and Anthony smith.
As the title suggests, the 14-track album features contributions from artists, songwriters and producers who have become friends and colleagues with Chris Young throughout his long career.
JORDAN ROWE FT. LAINEY WILSON – ‘MAMA AIN’T JESUS’
A good old fashioned country song from newcomer Jordan Rowe, a heartfelt tribute to his Mama. Lainey Wilson gives excellent support on harmonies, and the result is a tune that is gaining traction in all the right places.
He’s from South Georgia but is now based in Nashville, and is set to release his debut album ‘Bad Case of the Good Ole Boy on August 6th. The video was filmed at Nashville’s First Evangelical Lutheran Church.
DRAKE MILLIGAN – EP
Drake’s got an interesting back story. He passed the audition in 2018 for ‘American Idol’, singing a George Strait song which gave him a golden ticket to L.A. to appear on the show. He then had second thoughts and pulled out as he didn’t want his career to be defined as a ‘talent show contestant’.
He was already making his name as an actor, and had landed the lead role as a young Elvis on CMT’s ‘Sun Records’ in 2017, but the show lasted for one series despite critical acclaim.
He’s now signed to Broken Bow Records, and the EP’s quality both in terms of vocals and writing will surely assist Drake Milligan’s rise to fame.
JASON EADY – ‘SATURDAY NIGHT’
Jason Eady is releasing an album soon. It’s due on 27th August and ‘Saturday Night’ is the latest release from it.
He’s also commencing the Jason Eady Music Club, which is a subscription service where fans can gain access to pre-release copies of the new album and also access to monthly new tracks. They will also receive discounts on merchandise and access to vinyl copies of the album.
TRAVIS DENNING – ‘JACK AND COKE’
Travis’ sophomore six-track EP ‘Dirt Road Down’ will be released on 6th August. He’s also touring with Brothers Osborne on their ‘We’re Not For Everyone’ tour which starts in Philly on July 29th, so it’s been a busy period for the man who celebrated his first number one single last year with ‘After a Few’.
That song took 14 months to attain the top spot, but there’s no better way to keep your name relevant to country radio listeners than to have the same song spinning for over a year.
‘Jack and Coke’ is the third release from the EP, following on from ‘Call It Country’ and ‘ABBY’
