Is 2015 going to be the year of country boy bands? Groups like Florida Georgia Line, A Thousand Horses, and Eli Young Band are currently making their way up the country charts. This week, we have a fresh batch of songs attempting to make their marks with radio. The artists releasing music this week all have signature sounds that have caused a buzz within the industry. Here are the new tunes that will be playing this week on country radio:
Following the critical success of Same Trailer Different Park, Kacey Musgraves is back with new tunes from an upcoming album. She’s been touring with the old music since before the album was released in 2013. Lately, Kacey has been throwing a few songs from a yet-to-be-announced album into her live sets. “Biscuits” has been a fan favorite since she debuted it almost a year ago. The song features her signature witty lyrics and acoustic sound. Give it a listen and request it on radio.
Drake White – It Feels Good
Recently signed to Big Machine Label Group’s re-established label, Dot Records, Drake White has been making his way around the country with acts such as Eric Church, Luke Bryan, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. “It Feels Good” is White’s first single on the label.
Striking Matches – Hanging On A Lie
“Hanging On A Lie” might sound familiar as a track from the hit ABC Series, Nashville. Striking Matches has had a number of songs making their way onto the series. Having met at Belmont in 2007, the duo has come a long way over the last few years. The single will be featured on the duo’s debut album, Nothing But the Silence, that will be released March 24th.
Wade Bowen – When I Woke Up Today
Wade Bowen is definitely not a new-comer in the country music world. He released his first album back in 2002 and has made his mark on the Texas music scene. He released a self-titled album (his seventh overall) back in October and is releasing the single, “When I Woke Up Today,” nationally. Check out the track and let us know if you think it’ll bring more Texas to modern country radio.
