Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley apparently hasn't been listening to the same music I have lately because I've been finding TONS of super talented new artists and new Country that sounds great to me! With a family and the Lady schedule, I guess he hasn't been out around Nashville to hear the next wave of Country that is ready to find some air time, so I'll take him up on his question and give you my picks for great new Country right here. I'd love to know if any of these songs are capturing your imagination too!
Let's start with the 18 year old son on Country music legend John Michael Montgomery! Who remembers "Sold" and "Life's A Dance"? John Michael was a 90's Country Superstar! Now it's his son Walker's turn!
The soulful voice of Lee Brice deserves to be all over Country radio this Summer with this great song, "Rumor".
While I'm finding Country music that sounds incredible with a shot of Whiskey and someone you love holding you close, this next song is a BULLSEYE imho.Jon Langston is going to be a STAR someday soon. Remember, I told you.
Ryan Hurd was smart enough to ask Maren Morris to marry him so he's no dummy but man can he sing! I know my family in Boyne Falls, Michigan may be biased but I think you'll LOVE this song and everything else Ryan sings too!
While you're still hearing about Michigan with Ryan Hurd, here's another Country boy who grew up in Michigan too. Just outside of Detroit, my adopted second home town. Remember his hit Nothin' to Lose? Sure Josh has had a dry spell but I'm always willing to give a former military guy a shot! You should too.
This dude has a great voice and a super cute and creative video for "Got your name On it." You'll want to hear this song over and over. His bio says the 24 year old was " Raised on his grandparents’ farm in Ontario, Canada as he worked alongside his father tending crops and livestock." His voice sounds authentic to me!
I've been a fan of this next song from the VERY FIRST TIME I Heard Seth Ennis sing it on his radio tour at WPOC/Baltimore. A real life story written by Seth about returning his own mom's call has turned out a heartfelt reminder for everyone. This song instantly resonates with me and obviously the members of Little Big town agree. They begged Seth to sing it with him!
Well I started my list with 18 year old Walker Montgomery but he's not the only singer I'm followingthese days who can't even buy a beer yet! Meet 19 year old Dylan Schneider! Talent starts young these days for sure! Wow!
Uncle Kracker is a platinum selling artist having sung with Kenny Chesney and Kid Rock and this is another ear worm that I can't get out of my head!
THAT, Country Fan is my Top 9 new songs that deserve your attention but that's NOT all that I'm listening to in my truck these day. I LOVE Chris Stapleton and currently I can't hear his single "Millionaire" enough. Seen him play live several times and I always leave wanting more from Chris. The first single from Maren Morris' new album is out. i like it and can't wait to hear the rest of the album. Coming in the next month, new country from Chris Janson, LoCash and Jimmie Allen's follow up to his debut #1,"Best Shot", sounds good to me too, So remember I told you about Jimmie singing "make Me Want To" Now Listen and let me know your thoughts!
