LINDSAY ELL – ‘RIGHT ON TIME’
‘Right On Time’ has the potential to be a huge hit and return Lindsay to the top of the country charts following the success of ‘What Happens In A Small Town’ her duet with Brantley Gilbert.
She’s performing at the Long Road Festival in August and will be touring the UK with The Cadillac Three. She’s also featured on ‘Can’t Do Without Me’ with American Idol and label mate Chayce Beckham, which is climbing the US Country Charts.
KIMBERLY KELLY – ‘SUMMERS LIKE THAT’
Kimberly Kelly is gearing up for the release of her debut album, and the Texas native has spent many years perfecting her craft. This led to her signing with Show Dog Records in Nashville, and her first album ‘I’ll Tell You What’s Gonna Happen’ will be released on July 8th in collaboration with Thirty Tigers.
‘Summers Like That’ is the first single release, and the album has been produced by her husband Brett Tyler, who you may know as the writer of ‘Cold Beer Calling My Name.’
LANCO – ‘LOW CLASS LOVERS’
The band have taken a step back during the pandemic but are now ready to resume the journey that began with the success of ‘Greatest Love Story’ and their ‘Hallelujah Nights’ album, which hit #1 on the US Country Album charts.
They are appearing at CMA Fest is June, and ‘Low Class Lovers’ is the first of a collection of new music that they intend to release this summer.
CALEB CAUDLE – ‘LITTLE REMINDERS’
Caleb Caudle’s albums ‘Crushed Coins’ and ‘Carolina Ghost’ are essential listens and have been mainstays on our playlists for a number of years.
‘Little Reminders’ is a welcome return for the former Drive-by Truckers member who left the band to go solo.
”Little Reminders’ is “a song that I had in my back pocket for a while but never had a good recording of it. It’s about seeing your partner in all the details of everyday life. It’s a junk draw full of memories”
CAROLINE JONES – ‘BEING A WOMAN (IS LIKE BEING THE SUN)’
We rarely feature Blurgrass in our weekly lists, but are happy to include the new single from Caroline Jones, who has brought together an all-female band comprising of eminent Bluegrass recording artists.
GRAMMY Award-winning artist Alison Brown plays banjo, Rebecca Frazier on guitar, Kate Lee O’Conner on fiddle, Mary Meyer on mandolin and Missy Raines on bass.
The song is a tribute to mothers everywhere, and has been released in time for Mothers Day in the US.
SETH ENNIS – ‘HAIR TIES (I DON’T WANNA)’
Written by Ennis with Matt McVaney and Geoff Warburton a couple of years ago, ‘Hair Ties’ has now been released as Seth’s next radio single.
It was produced by Jordan Schmidt, who worked with Blake Shelton on ‘God’s Country.’
“I wanted to make a heartbreak song sound happy, and that’s what I tried to do with this song,” Ennis said. “It’s about a breakup that I went through a long time ago, and I pulled from that feeling, and I hope people will pull something from it and I hope that they have a summer bop to listen to.”
DARIUS RUCKER – ‘SAME BEER DIFFERENT PROBLEM’
There’s nobody better that Darius Rucker for the inspiring, up-tempo, sing-along anthems, and ‘Same Beer Different Problem’ has already been a part of his live shows this year.
Those of us who were fortunate enough to hear it performed at this year’s C2C will see where we are coming from. It’s pretty much ‘Beers and Sunshine’ Part 2, but it’s another hit in the making and a track that will feature on his new album that is in the works.
His last album was 2017’s ‘When Was the Last Time’.
ALEXANDRA KAY – ‘THAT’S WHAT LOVE IS’
If Tim McGraw has your back, you might be doing something right. Alexandra Kay is classed as a ‘viral TikTok sensation’ and she is heading out on a massive tour supporting McGraw this summer in the US.
Tim called her after viewing her TikTok performance of his 90’s hit ‘Don’t Take The Girl,’ which he described as “awesome”.
He also thinks that she “sounds like Dolly Parton,” which you can judge for yourself by checking out her new single ‘That’s What Love Is.’
CHRIS YOUNG FT. OLD DOMINION – ‘EVERYBODY NEEDS A SONG’
Chris’ album ‘Famous Friends (Deluxe Edition)’ is set to be released on June 3rd and he has shared rhe collaboration with Old Dominion, ‘Everybody Needs a Song.’
