Luke Combs announced 5 new songs will be coming on his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get in October and released one of them this week. “Without You” is so fantastic as he sings about honoring his parents and family for all of their sacrifices.
Keith Urban released his new album this week which features a collaboration with P!nk called “One Too Many.” Country crooner Adam Doleac is also back with new music this week. The “Famous” singer’s new release this week is a fun uptempo “Meet Me in the City.”
We’re big fans of Brandon Lay and are always excited when he’s dropping new music. This week his new song is about perspective in life and wondering how things turned out “Startin’ Young.” Another country act that continues to put out great music is Muscadine Bloodline.“Nothing Much to Do” is that song we can all relate to as it takes us back to a different time when we had less responsibilities and worries.
Bon Jovi and Jennifer Nettles are teaming up once again. They join forces on a fun one this week with “Do What You Can.” Speaking of duos, The Swon Brothers also have a new release this week with “Somewhere San Diego.”
My 3 Favorite Songs from Country Risers:
“She Got That” – Drew Green: Drew released his debut EP DIRT BOY Vol. 1 this week. Mixing sounds of R&B with country, Drew is always bringing a fresh sound to the genre. This song in particular strikes a great balance between the two influences, creating a really nice sounding song.
“Then There’s You” – David James & Genevieve Fisher: One of the things I love most about country music is when a male and female signer come together on a duet to blend their voices. David and Genevieve are two rising acts in the Canadian country scene. This song has them singing about all of the worlds great wonders, but nothing can come close to that one special person. This is a must add to your playlist.
“Say It Again” – Kelsey Lamb: When it comes to rising artists, considering how weird of a year it’s been, Kelsey is one riser who has gone full speed ahead with great new release after another. “Say It Again” is such a fun, young-loving, full of energy song that puts you in a great mood. I’m excited to see where the rest of this year and 2021 takes Kelsey.
Riley Green dropped a new EP and one of the songs, “Better Than Me”, includes a collaboration with Alabama’s Randy Owen. One of my favorite new tunes this week is Florida Georgia Line’s new one “Long Live” as they sing about living that country life to its fullest.
I am such a fan of everything Meghan Patrick puts out and that’s just as true this week as she releases her first song that will be send to US country radio with “My First Car.” Then there’s Mickey Guyton who has one of the best voices in country music. She released her new EP this week and “Bridges” is one of my early favorites.
Logan Mize gives us those feelings of country-raised nostalgia in his latest this week “Who Didn’t.”Brothers Osborne gets unapologetic in the groovy and soulful “I’m Not For Everyone.”
Muscadine Bloodline has put out a ton of new music but “See You Tomorrow” might be their best so far this year. One of our favorite artists is Jordan Rager as everything he puts out is so damn good. “Want Me to Want You” is his new song that we’ll be hitting repeat on all week.
My 3 Favorite Songs from Country Risers:
“Things I Can’t Say” – Spencer Crandall and Julia Cole. These are two of my favorite rising artists in general as they both bring a fresh sound to their music. Teaming up together isn’t something I saw coming, but their young energy in this song about those early moments in a relationship when you know it’s real adds to the songs appeal. I’m mashing the repeat button.
“Saturdays Are For the Boys” – PJ North. While going off the song title and phrase alone, it seems like a bro jam, but it’s more than that. I love when the song title is a clever head fake and that’s the case in this new one from PJ as he sings about everything he loves about fall Saturdays.
“I Drink Whiskey” – Halle Kearns. If you’re looking for an under the radar artist that is sprinting out of the starting blocks to her career it’s Halle Kearns. She follows up the streaming hit “Pick Me Up” with yet another addicting country-pop song with a hook that is so fun.
