Top mainstream new country songs of the week 1/5
Hey y’all, we have some new music from some awesome artists this week. Let’s dive right in.
“First thing that I’m gonna do is slide on in some corner booth, and take the whole damn family out, buy my buddies all a round, pay some extra on the tab, catch a movie, catch a cab, watch a ballgame from the stands, probably over wash my hands”
Hell yeah we’re starting the week with new Luke Combs. What an awesome song about the times we are all facing right now. It’s bittersweet and hopeful and catchy and a must-hear this week.
“And I knew I wouldn’t have to take the time putting them back on when I’m sober, yeah I knew you’d be pissed off over me and I’d just be all over”
This song brings me back to seeing Hardy live in Nashville this year. I fell in love with “Boots” the very first time I heard it and I’m so happy it’s finally out. Another hit I’ll be playing on repeat.
“I don’t care what you call me baby, and I don’t care if I ain’t your kind, and you might think I’m a little crazy, but I’m only crazy for you tonight”
Another release from Kip Moore’s upcoming album Wild World. From what we’ve heard so far it’s going to be excellent. This song is romantic and husky and sweet and a great song for lovers.
“I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to save me”
I like Tenpenny’s music so much I’d probably love anything he put out, and his cover of Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” is no exception. It really showcases his incredible voice.
”I hope you love just like your mama and love her like I do, you’ll see close to perfect patience if you watch her every move, you can always run to daddy, you’ll always be my baby but look at her baby girl and you’ll learn how to be a lady”
Surely this is a song for Young’s new baby girl and his wife. Written by Brett Young himself, Jon Nite and Ross Copperman, it tells a beautiful story of how he’d love for his daughter to emulate her mother. I’m humming along already.
“I don’t recall if we were any good, I’m guessing probably not, but we smoked a lot of pot, so in our heads we were destined for Hollywood”
Corey Smith never fails to tell his stories well and in captivating detail. If his stories weren’t interesting enough, his voice is. This is the tale of what it’s like to be young in a band in the 90s.
Like always, these songs will be added to the Raised Rowdy New Country playlist, so follow along.
