Train feat. Ashley Monroe – “Bruises”
We simply can’t get enough of “Bruises” by pop band Train featuring Ashley Monroe! The sound is organic, not overproduced, and the story is relatable to so many. It’s what Country radio needs right now. We really hope this track gets the airplay it deserves!
Jerrod Niemann – “Only God Could Love You More”
Jerrod Niemann is showing fans his softer side with his latest single, “Only God Could Love You More.” The song, which was co-written by Niemann with Jon Stone and Lee Brice, is one of our favorites from his album, Free The Music. We’re not sure there’s any better way to say “I Love You” than by saying “Only God Could Love You More.” You be the judge.
Jana Kramer – “Whiskey”
Jana Kramer made history with her debut single “Why Ya Wanna,” and she’s proving she’s no one-hit-wonder with her latest release, “Whiskey.” It seems Kramer has found her home in Nashville, leaving her Hollywood life behind (for now anyway) and we’re happy to have her!
Florida Georgia Line – “Get Your Shine On”
Florida Georgia Line didn’t waste any time between singles. The duo released “Get Your Shine On” as the follow-up to their mega-hit “Cruise.” Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley know what fans want and continue to deliver it here. FGL is on the fast track to super-stardom. If you haven’t jumped on this bandwagon yet, what are you waiting for?
Lee Brice – “I Drive Your Truck”
There’s absolutely no stopping Lee Brice. After back-to-back N0.1 hits, he’s back with what is quite possibly the best song at Country radio right now. “I Drive Your Truck” is everything a Country song should be. Brice sings this song with such passion that it’s tough not to get emotional while listening (and it’s even tougher if you watch the music video). If you’ve ever lost someone, this song is guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings.
Kristen Kelly – “He Loves To Make Me Cry”
Don’t let the title fool you, this is not another cheatin’ song from Kristen Kelly. This is a Country love song if we’ve ever heard one and Kristen sings the hell out of it. There’s not much else to say. Just listen.
Love and Theft – “Runnin’ Out Of Air”
Love and Theft has our toes tapping once again with their sexy new hit “Runnin’ Out Of Air.” The track, which is the duo’s second release from their self-titled album, has been a staple in our playlist for months. Give it a listen. We must warn you though, it’s slightly addicting!
Charlie Worsham – “Could It Be”
The industry is abuzz with talk about newcomer Charlie Worsham. His debut single “Could It Be” is traditional, yet fresh, and he reminds us of a young Vince Gill (what could be better?!). We’ve got a feeling there are big things coming for Worsham. Check out “Could It Be” and let us know what you think!
The Henningsens – “American Beautiful”
The Henningsens are the latest group to hit the Country music scene. After writing hit songs for The Band Perry, this trio, comprised of a father, daughter and son, is making a name for themselves with their debut single, “American Beautiful.” If you haven’t heard this track yet, chances are, you will soon because the song recently achieved the most first-week adds of any debut single in Country Aircheck history.
Brett Eldredge – “Don’t Ya”
Following the heartfelt ode to his grandmother with “Raymond” and a party song, “It Ain’t Gotta Be Love,” Brett Eldredge is back, sounding better than ever with his latest release, “Don’t Ya.” This playful tune has quickly become one of our favorites. “Don’t Ya” is the lead single from Eldredge’s forthcoming debut album.
