KASSI ASHTON  – ‘DATES IN PICK UP TRUCKS’

The first US radio release of Kassi Ashton’s career and her first release of 2022 is ‘Dates In Pick Up Trucks,’ written with David Garcia and Luke Laird, which has a very eclectic vibe with definite soulful influences.

She’s on UMG Nashville/Interscopes roster and it will be interesting to see how they build momentum for an artist who has already attracted critical acclaim from Rolling Stone Magazine and Bobby Bones.

ALYSSA BONAGURA – ‘PAPER AIRPLANE’

‘Paper Airplane’ is the third release from Alyssa’s forthcoming album and was a song that she had partially completed during 2020’s lockdown, but was completed following a FaceTime call with Scott Mulvahill.

The album is shaping up to be a real highlight of this year’s album release schedule.

COLE SWINDELL – ‘I’M GONNA LET HER’

He’s announced that his new album ‘Stereotype’ will be with us on April 8th, and the thirteen tracks will include his #1 single ‘Single Saturday Night’ and the duet with Lainey Wilson, ‘Never Say Never’.

The preview track ‘I’m Gonna Let Her’ was written with Dustin Lynch, Justin Ebach and Josh Thompson.

AUSTIN MOODY – ‘FOREVER NOW’

Austin Moody and Runaway June’s Jennifer Wayne tied the knot in January 2021, and the happy couple are now expecting their first child in April.

The girls are taking a break, but Austin’s new single ‘Forever Now’ is released this week and Jennifer adds vocals to the track. The song, written by Wayne, looks back on their individual lives before they discovered each other.

HALLE KEARNS – ‘ARE YOU OKAY?’

The single has been released alongside a new handmade jewellery range, ‘Happy Little Mother,’ and is based on the value of checking in on people.

Halle Kearns is relatively new to the country scene, having released 3 singles in 2020. She’s gearing up for the release of her debut EP later this year and ‘Are You Okay?’ is the first taster from it.

MAREN MORRIS – ‘BACKGROUND MUSIC’

The latest preview from her new album ‘Humble Quest,’ which will be released on March 25th.

‘Background Music’ was penned with Laura Veltz and Jimmy Robbins, and follows ‘Circles Around This Town’ which was released last month.

It’s a promise to her husband Ryan Hurd that her love for him will extend for as long as they both have each other.

BO ARMSTRONG – ‘YOUNG MAN’S GAME’ EP

We loved Bo’s ‘Chasing Ballads’ project in 2020 which was a highlight of the lockdown, and the Dallas-born, Nashville-based artist is back again with a three-track EP that maintains the quality that we have now come to expect.

The three tracks are a taster of his next album which is slated for release later this year, but no firm details yet.

ERIN KINSEY – ‘HATE THIS HOMETOWN’

Another independent Nashville artist with a new single that deserves attention is Erin Kinsey. She’s releasing her debut EP ’40 East’ on March 25th and the six tracks include ‘Hate This Hometown,’ written with Dave Cohen and Kathleen Higgins.

She’s from Texas, and the EP title relates to Highway 40 East, which is the road between home and Nashville, where she is now based.

She’s already released ‘Just Drive’ which has amassed over 20 million online streams, so her star is definitely on the rise.

SOUTHBOUND 17 – ‘RUNAWAY BRIDE’

Charleston natives Jack Austen, Jacob Simmons and Katie Bailey formed Southbound 17 in 2014 and released their debut EP in 2017.

Released to mark Valentine’s week, the band’s new single ‘Runaway Bride’ tells the story of a bride to be who decides at the last minute not to go through with the ceremony.
