HAYES CARLL FT. BRANDY CLARK – ‘IN THE MEAN TIME’
It’s the product of a co-write between these two prolific singer-songwriters. Hayes Carll is preparing to release his next album ‘You Get It All’ on the 29th October.
‘In The Meantime’ is described as a song “about the damage couples, regardless of how much love they share, can inflict on each other when they’re at their worst”.
DUSTIN LYNCH & RILEY GREEN – ‘HUNTIN’ LAND’
Dustin Lynch has had a prolific summer. He’s put out a bunch of new songs including the sublime ‘Pasadena’, which has been on our playlists since release.
He’s now teamed up with Riley Green for a tongue-in-cheek tale of the reason he stays with a girlfriend who he has little in common with – her Dad owns ‘Huntin’ Land’. The video was filmed on Lynch’s own farm.
TYLER CHILDERS – ‘YES I GUESS THEY OUGHTA NAME A DRINK AFTER YOU’
It’s definitely the longest song title we have ever featured on our weekly lists!
Childers is very hot property at the moment and has just played sell out gigs at Red Rocks in Colorado. The song is taken from a John Prine tribute album and is a cover of a Prine composition originally featured on his 1972 album ‘Diamonds In the Rough’.
STYLES HAURY – ‘A MAN THAT DIDN’T KNOW NOTHING’
Styles Haury is no stranger to our weekly lists and his latest release maintains the quality. It’s a ‘thank you’ to his Dad who sold the family Corvette to assist Styles’ relocation to Nashville to chase his dream.
The track was written with Jeremy Bussey and Bobby Hamrick, but initially attracted the interest of Jon Pardi who reserved it for a recording session. That ultimately didn’t happen, so Haury was able to record it himself.
JESSE SLACK – ‘THINGS I LIKE’
Jesse’s from Ontario, Canada and has used the pandemic to write and record a selection of new songs that he is now able to release.
‘Things I Like’ was last week’s most downloaded country single in Canada, beating the new tracks from Blake Shelton and Justin Moore to the top spot.
WALKER COUNTY – ‘LIAR’
Sisters Ivy and Sophie Walker are currently opening for Old Dominion and Scotty McCreery in the States. Dad Billy plays guitar in the band, cousin Jim plays bass and Mom sells merch, so it’s a true family affair.
They are from Indiana but are now based in Nashville and have signed with Warner Music Nashville.
ERIC DODD – ‘DO THIS RIGHT’
A young singer-songwriter from Greensboro, Georgia who had an opportunity to forge a career as a golf professional but ultimately chose music.
Eric is now based in Nashville and has already opened for Sam Hunt, Old Dominion and Jake Owen. This one is a stunner – check it out.
KANE BROWN & H.E.R – ‘BLESSED & FREE’
Kane Brown’s music is arguably the most diverse amongst the elite group of Nashville artists. He can produce music that the arch traditionalists will appreciate but will also blend the genres and link up with huge R&B artists.
H.E.R has already teamed up with Chris Stapleton for ‘Hold On’, which they performed at the 2021 CMT awards. She wrote ‘Blessed & Free’ with Brown and a group of co-writers, and it’s also the name of Brown’s latest tour which kicked off in Sacramento on October 1st.
