Eric Church dropped a brand new album under the title of this track today to the surprise of literally everyone. Take a listen to the title track and new single now!
Keith Urban announced the release of a new studio album yesterday. After scoring a number one with “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” a couple weeks back he sent a second single off Ripcord to radio last week. “Break On Me” is slower than nearly all of his songs in recent memory. You’d have to go all the way back to “Only You Can Love Me This Way” in 2008 to find something with a similar sound. Because of such, Urban has the chance to capture fans who might have been tuning into country radio five years ago and grab them with something that really doesn’t sound all that different.
The wait for new music from Zac Brown Band is officially over. The Grammy winning group released the debut single off their fourth LP this morning. Entitled “Homegrown” the track speaks to the beauties of living a slow paced life in some small southern hometown. Brown sings of having everything that you need and not wanting a thing that you don’t, a sentiment that many of us should adapt as we move forward in 2015. For the Zac Brown Band it’s always been about doing things the right way, which is heard in their songs. They’re not your typical country act. You won’t find them singing of partying in the sticks, or drinking beer in the back of a truck bed. Instead, they’ve created a brand of country for the average folk as heard here on “Homegrown.” “Feels so good to be taking it easy, how could I ever leave,” sings Brown as he exits the first verse and moves into the catchy chorus.
Broken Bow recording artist Jackie Lee has been around country music nearly his entire life. At just six years old he was hanging around Nashville recording studios, now some seventeen years later he’s finishing up his debut album. His first single, “She Does” is one of our favorite tracks on radio right now and Lee’s soulful vocals all but ensure a strong career ahead of him. We chatted with Lee this week about his debut single, what to expect in 2015, and what it was like to sing the National Anthem before a Green Bay Packers game earlier this year.
It’s not just new artists that will be making waves in country music this year, there are also some big names artists that will be releasing new studio albums. Of course, it’s hard to say just when these artists will be dropping their new albums but nevertheless these are some of the albums we’re excited for this year.
