There’s been a lot of activity at Country Music Radio recently. It appears that both Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean are burning at radio – both had massive numbers for their new singles. In addition, Maddie & Tae are making an impact with “Girl In A Country Song”. This week we have a few #CMchat favorites taking a shot at the top spot. Check out these songs that were send for adds this week:
American Young – Wasn’t Gonna Drink Tonight
American Young is “undoubtedly about to make waves in country music” according to #CMchat’s Jen Swirsky. Their previous song “Love Is War” was a favorite on SiriusXM’s The Highway. Co-written by Lee Brice, the song has been getting favorable reviews. Let’s hope this is what takes for the duo to make their way up the charts. We have the duo for a special #CMchat Twangout next Wednesday – be sure to tune in!
Kristian Bush – Trailer Hitch
Fans of Sugarland have been waiting to hear what Kristian Bush has in store for a solo project. After having a few years to work on music, Kristian was left with over 300 songs to put on his new disc. He has decided to release the playful “Trailer Hitch” as his solo debut. The song which talks about giving your possessions away since you “can’t take it when you go” has been a hit with fans on his radio tour. Listen and request “Trailer Hitch” at your local radio station.
Sonia Leigh – Put It In Your Pocket
#CMchat has been showing some love to Sonia Leigh over the last few weeks. Recently, Sonia was given honors by BMI for her songwriting skills on Zac Brown Band’s “Goodbye in Her Eyes” and “Sweet Annie”. After releasing a critically acclaimed album on Zac Brown’s Southern Ground label, Sonia is back with this independent release. The song has already been getting spins as a ‘Highway Find’ – we hope that it gets the same success on mainstream radio. Be sure to request this song!
The Cadillac Three – Party Like You
The trio with the most hair in Nashville is back at it with “Party Like You”. The Cadillac Three released “The South” last year and sold over 150,o00 copies of the song even though it only made it into Top 40 at radio. With a fan base like they have, it’s sure that this song will make it’s way up the charts.
