YLIAS Recommends… Our Top New Releases! (March 2019)

LOCASH – ‘BEERS TO CATCH UP ON’

The first release from their new album ‘Brothers’, which will be released on the 29th March, ‘Beers To Catch Up On’ is pop-country with chart appeal. It’s been 3 years since Chris Lucas and Preston Brust were featuring in the top 10 with ‘I Love This Life’ and ‘I Know Somebody’, and they will be looking for a return with their new label Broken Bow records.

RASCAL FLATTS – ‘BACK TO LIFE’ (LIVE FROM RED ROCKS)

The guys recorded this version of their latest single at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado on September 11th last year.

It’s definitely one of the best concert venues in the world. We can only imagine the pleasure of seeing Rascal Flatts perform there at a sold-out show. This recording merely wets the appetite.

PARMALEE – ‘BE ALRIGHT’

Another band on the Broken Bow Records roster, Parmalee, found fame with ‘Carolina’ and ‘Close Your Eyes’, but this was back in 2013/14. Their last single ‘Hotdamalama’ was truly awful and was a huge contender for the worst single of the year in 2018. Unsurprisingly it sunk without a trace.

Thankfully, ‘Be Alright’ is a huge improvement and is attracting a great social media response. One to look out for.

AARON LEWIS – ‘GOD AND GUNS’

The new album ‘State I’m In’ will be with us on 12th April. This is the fourth pre-release track from the album that will be released on Big Machine.

He has been in the news recently, having stormed off stage in Oklahoma City complaining about the audience chatting during his performance, but Lewis has a loyal fan base and his two previous albums have shifted upwards of 150,000 copies.

‘God And Guns’ is a political power ballad that makes it perfectly plain where Aaron Lewis stands on the US gun debate.

JAKE OWEN – ‘DRINK ALL DAY’

‘Greetings from….. Jake’ is the upcoming studio album from Jake Owen, and will be released on 29th March.  The drip-feed nature of releasing albums these days is replicated here. ‘Drink All Day’  has 4 co-writers, including  FGL’s Brian Kelley, so it’s safe to say that it’s likely to appeal to the mainstream fans.

We’ve said this many times before, but it’s about time Jake paid us a visit. C2C anyone?

AUSTIN JENCKES – ‘FAT KID’ (FEATURING LORI MCKENNA)

The first release from Jenckes’ new album ‘If You Grew Up Like I Did’, and it’s our favorite new tune at the moment. Featuring Lori McKenna on backing vocals, his website describes him as sounding like a “gnarly, but vulnerable country-blues singer with the introspective songwriting chops Nashville thankfully continues to reward”.  Let’s hope this is correct because this song deserves a massive audience.

DALLAS SMITH – ‘THE FALL’ (EP)

A 6-track mini album from Canadian Country star Dallas Smith. This guy’s last 7 singles have all topped the Canadian Country charts, save for one that only managed #3.

We have gone with ‘Rhinestone World’ as our featured track, a pounding live anthem which is sure to maintain his chart run.

BRAD PAISLEY – ‘MY MIRACLE’

It goes without saying that a Brad Paisley single will be awesome. He’s just released this to country radio and if there’s any justice in the world, this will be huge. 2019 is shaping up to be a big Paisley year, with his world tour and a new album on the way.

BEOGA – ‘MATTHEW’S DAUGHTER’ (FEATURING DEVIN DAWSON)

This is an unusual one. Irish trad-folk band Beoga have teamed up with Devin Dawson for this rendition of a song penned by the band with Ed Sheeran and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid.

Quite how this collaboration came about, we don’t know, and it’s certainly something to ask Devin when we next catch up. For now, lets enjoy a song that’s certainly worth checking out

KASSI ASHTON – ‘PRETTY SHINY THINGS’

“Just the emotional truth. I can’t wait to share this piece of me with you” – Kassi Ashton has just released her fourth single, ‘Pretty Shiny Things’, a return to the more thoughtful, vulnerable Kassi after the sassy ‘Taxidermy’ and ‘Violins’.

This is a powerful one that will mean a lot to her ever-growing contingent of followers. Probably the strongest release of hers to date.

SARA EVANS AND THE BARKER FAMILY BAND – ‘DREAMS’

Yes, it’s the remake of Fleetwood Mac’s classic.  It’s also very country with Sara enlisting the support of her son and daughter Olivia and Avery as backup singers. It’s a foretaste of a covers EP that will be released next month, including songs first made hits by Beyoncé and Carole King.
