Brett Eldredge - "Beat of The Music" (Atlantic Nashville):

Could very well be another chart-topper for the talented newcomer. Showcases his Bluesy range rather well.

Chase Rice - "Only A Country Girl"  (Dack Janiels):

Plenty of personality, and plenty of swagger.

Listen to the single here.

Dallas Smith - "Somebody Somewhere" (VIOIV Records):

Really cool melody, and really cool flow to song. A lot of potential.

Florida Georgia Line" I’m In A Hurry (And Don't Know Why)" (Show Dog-Universal) :

Note:Not an official single, but most talked about track from new Alabama And Friends CD).

Really faithful take on Alabama’s 1992 classic. Harmony is particularly strong.

Gary Allan - "It Ain’t The Whiskey" (MCA Nashville):

Moody and evocative. A song that ranks among his greatest performances.

Kendall Beard - "Drinkin’" (AJV Records):

Absolutely love the rawness of her vocal here. Laced with confidence.

Listen to "Drinkin'" here.

Kyle Park - "Fit For A King" (KP Entertainment/Independent):

Nice tribute to George Strait. Really neat how the titles all fit – and kudos for using album cuts. Vocal performance works too!

LoCash Cowboys - "Best Seat In The House" (Average Joes Entertainment):

A dramatic change of pace for the LoCash Boys.....I really like it! Filled with sentimental tones that they handle well.

Ryan Broshear - "Make Each Moment Last" (Painted Horse Records):

This guy is a star in the making. The songs are there, and so is the talent. Definitely one to watch....

Listen to "Make Each Moment Last" here

Turnpike Troubadours - "Before The Devil Knows We’re Dead" (Independent/Thirty Tigers):

Very rootsy, organic, and Americana-ish.....Nice instrumentation....
