Muscadine Bloodline – "Shipping to 16th Avenue". – Country protest songs are a dozen. Good country protest songs that actually say something meaningful and are fun to listen to are hard to find. Muscadine Bloodline are so sure of them that they have named their new album, which will be released on February 2, 2022, after that. And yes it is that good.
Carly Pearce feat. Ashley McBryde – "Never Wanted To Be That Girl" – Whoa, look at Ms. Pearce who is going strong now with two songs on the playlist, and this time with her latest radio single with Ashley McBryde. After "Never Wanted to Be That Girl" was one of the "most added" songs on country radio, "Never Wanted to Be That Girl" is well on the way to making the best debuts for a single from Pearce or McBryde. This song is a hit and it is all thanks to the excellent writing by Pearce and McBryde himself.
Zachariah Malachi – "Local Bar Opry Star" – You're going to want this guy on your radar, and his debut single is the perfect excuse. Produced by the late Jimmy Capps and backed by an all-star band including Chris Scruggs on steel guitar, "Local Bar Opry Star" announces Zachariah Malachi as an important voice in traditional country.
Joshua Ray Walker – "Dallas Lights" – From Dallas, TX Joshua Ray Walker makes his hometown proud after delivering the third installment of his honky tonk album trilogy See You Next Time. The opening song of the new album shows off his great voice, excellent writing skills and his homeland pride.
Tyler Childers – "Yeah, I think they'll name a drink after you" – Over a year after Prine's death, and over a year since we heard any new recordings from Tyler Childers, the two of them worked together to deliver us all with this new take on John Prine's rather obscure but popular whiskey siller "Yes" I guess they should name a drink after you ”from the John Prine compilation Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine, Vol. 2.
