TENILLE TOWNES – ‘THE LAST TIME’
Tenille’s been invited to host the Canadian Country Music Association Awards with Blanco Brown, and such is her popularity in her home country that she has been nominated for 7 awards. These include Single of the Year, Album of the Year and Entertainer of the Year, so it may just be a very busy evening for Tenille.
She’s returning to the UK in October for 5 gigs, starting in Belfast and concluding in Manchester.
New single ‘The Last Time’ is out now.
DANIELLE BRADBERY – ‘A SPECIAL PLACE’
Written by Maren Morris, Sasha Sloan, Shane McAnally and Jimmy Robbins, the release of ‘A Special Place’ marks the start of a busy period for Danielle Bradbery.
She says it marks the next stage of her career. “I’m always so pumped to share what I’ve been working on. Like I said before, I’m just so ready for y’all to hear this era of music so let it begin.”
THE PANHANDLERS – ‘WHERE COTTON IS KING’
The are described as a Texas ‘supergroup’ comprising of Josh Abbott, William Clark Green, John Baumann and Cleto Cordero of Flatland Calvary, who greatly impressed the traditionalists with their 2020 self-titled album, which was widely considered to be a one-off.
The plan obviously changed, as they have gone back into the studio to record an up-beat, boot-stomping single describing the land that they know so well and the crop that defines it.
The expectation that there might be more to come isn’t realised just yet, as the guys have not committed to another full project, but as they say “never say never”.
ANSLEE DAVIDSON – ‘TROUBLE WITH GEORGIA’
The Nashville talent pool just keeps growing, and we are loving the new track from Greensboro, Georgia native Anslee Davidson.
‘Trouble With Georgia’ describes the emotional hold that a place can have where fondest and treasured memories occured. In this case, Georgia, the place she calls home.
HAYES CARLL – ‘HAPPY HOUR’
A new track from acclaimed singer-songwriter Hayes Carll who has his roots firmly fixed in the alt-country/americana branch of the genre.
He’s about to hit the road with Brent Cobb for a co-headlining tour that will take in much of the south-east and the north-east of the States throughout the rest of the year. The shows will involve both doing a solo set before joining for a collaborative conclusion.
MEGAN MORONEY – ‘TENNESSEE ORANGE’
Another Georgia native who is forging a musical career in Nashville, Megan Moroney has previously released a well-received debut EP ‘Pistol Made Of Roses,’ and is back with a new track, ‘Tennessee Orange,’ that will also impress her admirers.
“I’m a Georgia girl, born and raised in Georgia. I went to UGA and then I moved to Nashville. I met a lot of Tennessee boys, a lot of Tennessee Vols, and I had a crush on one of them and I wrote a song about it.”
She’s opening for Jamey Johnson and Blackberry Smoke until mid-September, then will appear with Larry Fleet and Warren Zieders until mid-November.
KELSEA BALLERINI – ‘WHAT I HAVE’
She shared the news of her divorce from Morgan Evans in the last week, so the release of ‘What I Have’ will now have even greater meaning for her followers.
It’s a song that she premiered at the Grand Ole Opry in January, and it’s also the fourth song to be released from her forthcoming fourth album ‘Subject To Change,’ which will be released on 23rd September.
She told the Opry audience that the 2-year pandemic had forced her to change her outlook on life.
GABE LEE – ‘RUSTY’
Gabe’s third album is set to be released on October 28th and it’s appropriately called ‘The Hometown Kid,’ which will offer his unique perspective of life in Music City.
The first release from the project is ‘Rusty,’ which is one of twelve tracks recorded at the Farmland Studio in Nashville.
ZAC BROWN BAND FT. JAMES TAYLOR – ‘LOVE AND SUNSETS’
The new versions of tracks originally included on ZBB’s ‘The Comeback’ album keep coming.
The re-recorded ‘Love & Sunsets’ features James Taylor and his son Henry as backing vocalists, and James also contributes on guitar.
‘The Comeback Deluxe Edition’ is set for release on September 30th.
