He's got his Grand Ole Opry debut on September 30th and excitement is building for newcomer Jackie Lee. His first single is a good look at why. "She Does" shows off powerful vocals on a tune about the things we do for love.
Published author and occasional actor, Josh Turner, doing what brought him to the dance--singing--with "Lay Low," a laid-back bit of baritone romance about getting away with the one you love.
The fourth single from one of the more musically adventurous albums of the last few years finds Eric using the legendary track as a metaphor for those magic moments that live on in our memories.
Tim follows the success of "Meanwhile, Back at Mama's," his duet with wife Faith Hill, with a love song that's clearly meant at least in part as an ode to her. It's McGraw magic at its romantic best.
Hard to Be Cool
Joe, a walking epitome of country cool, sings about a girl hot enough to make being cool a tall order. This is the third single from his Crickets album. The first two were both chart-toppers and it would be hard to bet against this one.
Baby Be My Love Song
The second single from Easton's yet-to-be-released third album deals with the music a couple can make after the band has gone home. Who needs music when you can be the music.
One of the great country voices of all time is back with a little help from another world-class vocalist. Trisha and Kelly Clarkson light up this truly uplifting track about persistence in times of trouble.
It's been a while since there's been a good, solid blue-collar anthem, and Lee has brought one in spades. Should make for a great concert moment too!
Summer shows up in full force in this ode to partying outside of town as the boys from Kentucky bring it with both barrels.
You Are What You Love
Kelleigh is looking to break into the Top 40 as she brings her rock side to bear on a few of her favorite things. "You Are What You Love" is a high-powered tale of living while the living's good.
Good On You
Rachel Beauregard and Bryan Dawley call what they do "country themes and very singable choruses," and both are very much in evidence here. "Good on You" is flirtation with a catchy melody and harmonies, an upbeat, fun first entry from the new duo.
Shut Me Up
A young Canadian with enviable guitar skills and great vocal chops, Lindsay Ell showcases her formidable talents on this tale of cheating and revenge. And any song with the line "you can't cover up the truth with duct tape" is worth a listen!
EXCLUSIVE VIDEO OF CHRIS' NEW SINGLE
It's one of the oldest ideas in country music--the perils and promise of a barroom meeting--but in this third single from his fourth album, Chris and producer James Stroud manage to give it a fresh feel.
A Guy Walks into a Bar
Tyler follows "Redneck Crazy" and "Whiskey in My Water" with a dramatic and raw-voiced tale of love and loss bookended by the situation in the title.
Party Like You
A party song ought to sound like a party song, right? Well, from the opening slide through crisp-as-nachos guitar riffs and snare drum to the rapid-fire lyrics of the chorus, this tune—from the album Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue—is one that does.
Make Me Wanna
Thomas, who's coming off two big #1s, brings just a touch of old-school R&B feel to this bit of back road romance. Just the thing for a mid-summer's drive.
Live a Little
Great advice from newcomer Dean Alexander, who's got riffs and "summertime" written all over this ode to enjoying life's simple pleasures.
Buzz Back Girl
After a big hit--"Drink to That All Night"--and a big miss--"Donkey"--the never-a-dull-moment singer from Kansas is back with a song about the intoxicating power of a woman. If you think that sounds like vintage Jerrod, I'd have to agree with you!
