Since the start of the year, country music radio has been sent quite a few new songs. Reba released her first single from an upcoming album, Miranda Lambert released a new single off of Platinum, and The Voice winner Craig Wayne Boyd released his debut single to radio. In the coming weeks, major names including Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Eric Church, and new duo Maddie & Tae will be releasing new music to radio. Here is what you can look forward to hearing on country music radio this week:
Big and Rich returned to country radio last year with the release of their album Gravity in September. “Look At You” made its way into the Top 10 on the charts, so the duo is back with a new single that is already reaching for the same success. Give the song a listen and tell us what you think!
Zac Brown Band – Homegrown
Through a series of three albums, Zac Brown Band has already worked their way into superstardom. With singles including “Chicken Fried,” “Toes,” and “Colder Weather” the group is used to spending time at the top of the charts. The group is back with “Homegrown,” a new single expected to be on their upcoming album.
A Thousand Horses recently signed to Big Machine Label Group’s Republic Records and releases their debut single to radio this week. “Smoke” brings to light the bands signature sound that is a blend of country, rock, and blues. The group made the list of #CMchat’s 15 Artists to Watch in 2015, so be sure to listen for the single at radio.
Davisson Brothers Band – Jesse James
The Davisson Brothers Band made their debut in 2009 with a self titled debut album. The disc charted on Billboard charts after their single “Foot Stompin'” had mild success. They are back with a brand new single, “Jesse James.” The single is quickly becoming a heavy hitter on Sirius XM’s The Highway. Keep an eye out for the Davisson Brothers Band in the future.
“In all of her music, Rachele has the innate ability of a true artist to memorialize every moment about which she sings with her emotion, spectacular vocals, and candid descriptions of whatever scenario is the subject of the song. That is no different in ‘Whole Lotta Nothin” where a listener can easily close his or her eyes and take a three and a half minute vacation to escape reality.” – Country Music #CMchat’s Jen Swirsky
