Jordan Rager has released his first single as a part of BBR Music Group with “Small Town Skyscrapers.” The track details how no matter where he goes he will always “look up to those small town skyscrapers.” It is something like a Jason Aldean song in its production with its mid-tempo heavy guitar sound, and showcases Rager’s pronounced twang. For a debut single, this was a good choice in that it does not fall into the cliche party category yet is still a fun listen. Congrats to Jordan and check it out on Spotify or buy it on iTunes now!
There’s no recorded version available to listen to on YouTube yet, so this live performance off of Jordan’s official YouTube page will have to do. Take a listen:

Eric Church is widely known as one of the best performers in country music. His unique ability to blend genres makes his records good, but hearing the sound live takes things to another level. His heavily rock influenced show, makes it unlike anything else around. One moment he’s in your face and the next he’s slowing things down. There’s songs about things that matter and songs about those that don’t. But if you’ve seen the chief perform before you already knew all that. What made Thursday night at the TD Garden different was the record breaking length.
Will Hoge released his new album Small Town Dreams a couple weeks back and we glossed over it without giving much thought. The project was released on a busy week that included Thomas Rhett’s new single and Kristian Bush’s debut album. Fast forward a couple of weeks, mix in some down time, and the result is a review of the project.
Tyler Farr is somewhat of an outlier in country music. His gravelly voice wouldn’t suggest it, but the Missouri native is a classically trained opera singer who spent his senior year of high school singing tenor in Missouri’s All-State chorus. His first single, “Hot Mess,” had virtually no success despite being cowritten by Rhett Akins, while “Redneck Crazy” was almost universally disliked by critics before becoming his breakout hit. All in all it has been an unlikely rise for Farr who today released his sophomore album, Suffer in Peace.
Dailey & Vincent may be the biggest stars in bluegrass music. The three-time Grammy nominated duo has performed at iconic venues from coast to coast and last year took their family friendly show to the seas for the Dailey & Vincent cruise. They aren’t making new country music by any stretch of the imagination, but what they are creating is soulful music that makes you feel good. Their new album, ALIVE! In Concert, is available now exclusively at Cracker Barrel stores and online at crackerbarrel.com. On it you’ll hear songs never before released by the duo including the powerful “American Pride.” We talked with the superstar duo to find out what went into recording this live album.
