We are back from vacation and raring to go with the best of the recent new country music releases!
As usual, a mixture of famous faces and some you might not have come across. Hopefully the quality is consistent….
JOJO MASON – ‘BETTER ON YOU‘
To begin, a stormer from Canadian Jojo Mason. If you are partial to the musical output of the likes of Mitchell Tenpenny, we reckon you are going to love this.
He released his only album in 2017 but is gearing up for number 2 later this year. If this track is representative of the style and quality, we can’t wait to hear it.
TUCKER BEATHARD – ‘FIND ME HERE‘
It seems an age since we saw Tucker in the UK. Lots has happened in his career since – some good, some bad – but we are delighted to hear new music from this very talented singer-songwriter.
‘Find Me Here’ is very laid back and acoustic which highlights the quality of the songwriting and performance. We can’t believe it’s been 3 years since his top 10 smash ‘Rock On’. Nice to have his music back. Come back and see us soon, Tucker!
MIKE AND THE MOONPIES – ‘YOU LOOK GOOD IN NEON‘
Texan Mike Harmeier has been creating quality country music since 2007 and came to our attention last year with one of the tracks of the year, ‘Steak Night At The Prairie Rose’.
Mike and The Moonpies are back with a new single which is going down just fine with the traditionalists…
TREA LANDON – ‘GET THE GIRL’
A 1uality ballad from Nashville-based Trea Landon, who is signed with Warner Nashville. He’s very much the new kid on the block. He’s got the voice. Will this be the song?…
ABBY ANDERSON – ‘GUY LIKE YOU’
Fun, upbeat and feel good. The perfect recipe for summer country music. Texan Abby Anderson is currently supporting Rob Thomas in the States – this is the follow up to ‘Good Lord’ which is one of the most infectious songs we’ve heard this year. Big things ahead for this girl…
TYLER CHILDERS – ‘HOUSE ON FIRE‘
Tyler Childers made his mark on country music in 2017 with the Sturgill Simpson-produced album ‘Purgatory’. It was an album that gained rave reviews from the traditional country music fans and meant that the anticipation for the follow up is huge.
‘Country Squire’ will be with us in August, but for now we have the first release from that album ‘House On Fire’, which is sure to be popular.
CAROLINE JONES – ‘GULF COAST GIRL’
This is an interesting one. Caroline Jones who has been touring with Kenny Chesney releases a single with Jimmy Buffett, Lukas Nelson , Mac McAnally and Mr Chesney all featuring.
It’s typical Buffett/Chesney territory. It could be a massive smash.
CHANCEY WILLIAMS & THE YOUNGER BROTHERS BAND – ‘TONIGHT WE’RE DRINKIN’
We have featured these guys before but we always like to pull a rabbit out of the hat. It doesn’t get much more country, but that’s what we are here for! Wyoming country from the guy who rode in the rodeo.
It does exactly what it says on the tin.
DYLAN SCOTT – ‘BETWEEN AN OLD MEMORY AND ME‘
This is guy who burst on the scene with ‘My Girl’ and ‘Hooked’, and let’s be honest, he’s had more than his share of haters in the trad-country world.
We will be very interested to see the reaction from those quarters for this one. This couldn’t be more ‘real’ country. Mr Scott, take a bow – awesome!
KASSI ASHTON – ‘FIELD PARTY‘
We caught up with Kassi recently in Nashville. She’s back with a contemporary dance floor filler that has ‘summer smash’ written all over it. Shake your booty time, folks…..
