Garth Brooks



In the course of his career, Garth has done the unexpected, worked with grand themes, and tugged at the heartstrings. With "Mom," he does all three.


rascal flatts

Racscal Flatts



One of the more interesting metaphors for heartache shows up in this song by the Flatts boys, complete with Gary's compelling lead vocals and Joe Don and Jay's harmonies.

Sam Hunt

Take Your Time


After going straight to the top with "Leave the Night On," Sam is back with an R&B-influenced song about the delicate balancing act that's sometimes necessary when you meet someone special.


blake shelton

Blake Shelton featuring Ashley Monroe

Lonely Tonight


Blake and Ashley combine two of country's richest and most convincing voices on an achingly powerful look at loneliness after the relationships is over. This song should introduce Ashley, one-third of the Pistol Annies, to a much wider audience.



Rodney Atkins

Eat, Sleep, Love You-Repeat



Three years after the chart-topper "Take a Back Road" and the album of the same name, Rodney dials laid-back way back with a song about chillin' as a lifestyle.

Cole Swindell

Ain't Worth the Whiskey


"Getting over you" songs are a country staple, even when they're saying, "Who? Me? Broken-hearted? Nah." Which is how Cole approaches it in this country rocker.

Whole Lotta Nothin’


Newcomer Rachele Lynae is looking for a little beach-style relief in this coolly upbeat single with a Caribbean feel.

The Swon Brothers 

Pray for You


The second single from the brothers from Muskogee finds Zach and Colton offering comfort to someone going through hard times, with sentiments like, "I ain't gonna judge you/I'm just gonna love you."


justin moore

Justin Moore

This Kind of Town


After a tune from the Motley Crue tribute album, Justin returns to his "Off the Beaten Path" CD for a single taking a slow-paced look at a slow-paced, deeply appreciated town.v






Hoping to recapture the magic that came with "(Kissed You) Good Night," Tom, Mike and Rachel bring big harmonies, wall-to-wall sound and great uptempo attitude to this song warning the man in her life to tread lightly.


dustin lynch

Dustin Lynch 

Hell of a Night


It may be fall, but Dustin Lynch, coming off a huge hit with "Where It's At," rocks out with this summertime anthem.

Chase Rice 

Gonna Wanna Tonight


"Ready Set Roll" introduced Chase to country fans everywhere, and he follows up with a feel-good song about young love.



Radney Foster



The legendary Texas singer/songwriter takes on nothing less than summing up the allure and mystery of a state synonymous with dreams and reinvention for hundreds of years.



Billy Currington

Don't It


Billy's on a roll these days, and his latest is a feel-good song that finds him putting all his powers of persuasion to use in talking to a woman he's hoping will tap into her "wild and crazy side."




The Railers

Kinda Dig The Feeling


Understated title, but everything else is strap-yourself-in, musically and lyrically. Tight harmonies and a full-tilt trackshowcase the strengths that earned the Railers a deal on Warner Bros. Nashville. 


josh abbott band

Josh Abbott Band

Hangin' Around


Looking to chill amid the chaos of life? That would be the bottom line of this enjoyable bit of escapism from the Josh Abbott Band, Texas favorites making a move on national attention.
