Dylan Scott: ‘Livin’ My Best Life’ – Album Review

Dylan Scott’s brand new album, Livin’ My Best Lifeis out now, August 5th on all streaming platforms. Take a listen and read our full review below.

Over three years since the release of his EP, Nothing to Do Town, Dylan Scott is back with a new full-length album, Livin’ My Best Life. Eight of the album’s sixteen tracks were co-written by Scott, allowing the Louisiana native to show his different sides. The singer-songwriter truly flexes his best life here, reveling in everything from church pews to raucous stage shows to nights at home with the love of his life. 

The new album also features co-writes by Thomas Rhett, Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Mitchell Tenpenny, HARDY, Morgan Wallen, and more of Nashville’s biggest names, and their influences can be heard throughout this album. While Scott puts his patented growl and country twang on each and every song, hints of different writers can be found on their respective tracks.

For example, the album’s title track shows that Scott could easily be the long-lost third member of Florida Georgia Line, crooning over the breezy summer anthem about living life to the fullest, as he drops a “YOLO” in the lyrics. Co-written by FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, along with Thomas Rhett and Corey Crowder, the track is the perfect mood lifter and crowd-pleaser.

“I’m just out here livin’ // Out here livin’ // Livin’ my best life, aye // And I’m just out here chillin’ // Feelin’ like a million // Kickin’ it like it’s my birthday // Hey I’ma do exactly what I want // I’ma sip // Sip on somethin’ strong singin’ // I’m just out here livin’ // Out here livin’// Livin’ my best life.”

While Scott can do a party anthem with the best of them as evidenced on tracks like “Amen to That” and “Nothing to Do Town,” he shines when he’s showing his softer side. This is endlessly apparent on songs like “Can’t Have Mine,” “Boy I Was Back Then,” “Lay Down with You” and “Tough.”

“Can’t Have Mine (Find You a Girl),” which has become a bit of a TikTok sensation, shows Scott adoring a woman in his life, as he proclaims all of the virtues she has, before teasing “take it from me // That’s the kind you need to find // You just can’t have mine.” Meanwhile, on the sultry “Lay Down With You,” he admits that the best part of his day is when it’s over and he can just cuddle up with someone special. 

“Tough” cleverly shows Scott’s softer side, as he warns his son of all the times when it’ll seem impossible to be tough, ranging from nearly losing the love of your life to watching her walk down the aisle. Likewise, the singer-songwriter is introspective on “Boy I Was Back Then,” admitting that it would be hard for someone to love him if they knew him in his wild, younger days.

A clear highlight of the album is “In Our Blood,” Scott’s anthemic duet with Jimmie Allen. On the darkly melodic tune, the pair harmonize over the fact that, despite our differences, we’re all humans who bleed red. The song of unity finds the pair seeking common ground, admitting that “we might do things in a different way // But we all want love and we all need grace // Everybody bleeds red at the end of the day.”

“New Truck” finds Scott seeking to trade-in his beloved truck because of the memories it holds. In this mid-tempo musical car ad, he proclaims the truck’s virtues before admitting that he’s looking for something to give him a fresh start.

“I need a new truck // There ain’t nothing wrong with mine // It’s got forty-something thousand miles // And the engine runs just fine // I need one she ain’t climbed up in // That ain’t played her favorite songs // Need some glass that we ain’t fogged up // That her bare feet ain’t been on // I need a hood that we ain’t laid on // Kissing ’til that sun came up  // That’s all that’s wrong with this one // If you’re looking you’re in luck // I need a new truck.”

On “Killin’ Some Time,” “Static” and “Good Times Go By Too Fast,” Scott is introspective, enjoying the time he has on this earth, while realizing that it’s temporary. On “Static,” he’s escaping the hubbub of his daily life and “driving ‘til there’s nothing but static on the radio” so he can spend some time with the man upstairs. Meanwhile, he’s enjoying his temporary home on “Killin’ Some Time” and enjoying the life he’s been given.

Meanwhile, “Good Times Go By Too Fast” is reminiscent of Kenny Chesney’s “Don’t Blink,” as Scott laments about how time flies when you’re having fun. “Yeah, I wish time would tick a little slower // Sometimes I feel like I blink and it’s over // Better soak it in // Better make it last // Live it up while we can // ‘Cause the good times go by too fast.”

After listening to Dylan Scott’s new album, it’s endlessly apparent why he went with the title Livin’ My Best Life. Through this new sixteen-song collection that runs the gamut of simple life, faith, family, and not shying away from a good time, it’s evident that Scott is doing just that.

Craig Morgan has become synonymous with “heart” in the country music industry. He creates music that makes you feel. His voice is one of the most emotive in the genre. Morgan’s new song “How You Make A Man” continues to prove his staying power.

The new song is an honest tribute to all of the days of our existence. Morgan does not shy away from the hard times in life, as he sings about “rising” and “falling” throughout different times in life. The climax of the track is truly the title of the song. All these experiences are “how you make a man.” Throughout the song, Morgan acknowledges all the triumphs and tribulations. It is clear he knows a thing or two about rising from the ashes.

“Daddy said let me tell you son // It’s the good days, bad days // Goodbyes, heartbreaks // Taillights fading cause you didn’t say enough // The loss and the tears // and the laughs and the beers // The one’s you find, the ones you walk away from // You learn to crawl, you rise, you fall // You hit your knees until you learn to stand // that’s how you make a man”

As a veteran in the industry, Morgan is not trying to fit in with the “cool kids.” He is carving a path that is distinctly his own. Fans who appreciate honest, vulnerable, and emotive lyrics will continue to jump on his bandwagon. just like we have!

Madison Kozak Shares New Song “Loud House”

Madison Kozak’s new track, “Loud House”  is out now, August 5th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new song below.

Madison Kozak follows up last month’s clever “One Girl To Another” is the incredibly honest and nostalgic “Loud House”. The song was written by Kozak years ago, and the message of the song still holds true, if not more so now that time has passed. Kozak grew up as one-of-eight children, and although she reflects on her childhood with love, she is sincere in acknowledging its difficulties of it as well.

“Growin’ up in a loud house // You get used to the sound // Happy or sad // There’s always a crowd // And when you’re sixteen // You can’t wait to move out // Out of a loud house”

In a lot of ways, it’s a continuation and older sister of 2019 release “Household”. While that story is more reminiscent and poignant, “Loud House” cuts straight to the heart of growing up. It’s the best and the most difficult, and you can love your family while processing the dynamics and patterns you grew up learning.

“Mom and Dad are shoutin’ // Throwing words around // Don’t know what it’s about // But it don’t sound good // And she starts crying // He peels out the drive // And then it’s all quiet in the neighborhood”

“I wrote ‘Loud House’ within the first year of signing my publishing deal, so I’ve been sitting on it for a minute,” Kozak shares. “It felt very special from the day I wrote it. I remember running across the street to Big Loud and playing it right after I wrote it, because I was just so excited. It felt like an actual piece of my heart in song form.”

The production, melody, and Kozak’s vocal delivery on this song is some of her strongest work yet. This tune is a showstopper in a way that her breakout “First Last Name” is. The sonics are slow enough to really digest the lyrics and the story, and every detail is nuanced and stunning.

It’s no surprise that Madison Kozak continues to release great song after great song, and it seems she has no plans of stopping. It’s refreshing to hear a nostalgic perspective that hits both the sweet memories and the ones harder to swallow in a more modern country song. The longing for peace and less chaos growing up to not being able to navigate the quiet is a very realistic narrative and one that should be explored more often.

Travis Denning: ‘Might As Well Be Me’ – EP Review

Travis Denning releases his new EP, Might As Well Be Me, out now, August 5th on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new project below and check out our full review.

Travis Denning made his mark on the country scene with his 2019 radio hit, “After A Few.” Since then, the Georgia-native has released three, six-track EPs, all of which have represented four major themes: nostalgia, love, heartbreak, and southern pride. The opening track, “Red Round Here,” is his ode to country life. He lists all the mundane jobs people carry out daily, and says it is his job to “keep it red down here.” The track is very upbeat and country, and the chorus’ rhyme scheme gives it a nice flow and makes it a fun tune for the tailgate playlist.

“Somebody’s gotta keep it red ‘round here, hold it down down here // Pop a county-line sign full of lead ‘round here, yeah // Crank some Hank on the bank throw some bait on a limb line hanging on a tree”

The single, “Buy A Girl A Drink” explains how this simple act can have a huge impact on your life. He says it is the best way to spend $7.50, as it can lead to a forever love. The writers, Jeremy Stover, Paul DiGiovanni, Chase McGill, and Denning, go through the whole timeline, including the first kiss, the wedding, honeymoon, children, etc. 

“River Named Mississippi” is a simple love song in which Denning confesses his feelings for this person using many State metaphors, ending with the phrase “I’m going to love you as long as there’s a river named Mississippi.”

“Long as there’s pine trees in Georgia, Rockies in Colorado // Stars in California, Chevy makes a Silverado // Long as cowboys in Texas, Tennessee bottles whiskey // I’m gonna love you long as there’s a river named Mississippi “

Denning captures his past so well in his songwriting. From his debut single about a fake I.D.—“David Ashley Parker from Powder Springs”—to now “Don’t Give A Truck,” Denning explains his reasoning for why not to give your teenage boy a truck. He quite obviously talks from personal experience, describing all the reckless things he did in his truck in the past. This is a relatable tale to anyone who grew up driving around in their parent’s car.

“Don’t give a truck, don’t give a truck, don’t give a truck to a small town kid // ‘Cause he’s gonna end up, gonna end up, making don’t tell stories in the back of it // He’ll drive too fast, burn some gas, if the last thing you want is him looking back”

 “She’s On It” was the second song released on the EP. This cleverly written tune starts out by describing a girl who is enjoying a Friday night on Main Street. The girl suddenly shifts from the protagonist to the main plot point after the first verse, as the listener soon learns about the ex-boyfriend who is drinking his sorrows away at the bar. She’s on the dance floor, on her new guy’s tab, and—unfortunately—still on her ex’s mind.

“He’s got his phone on the bar face down, he can’t stand to see that background //When it lights up, I bet she’s on it (I bet she’s on it) // And for all he knows there’s some new guy // Makin’ her laugh with all his lines // If he’s got a tab // I bet she’s on it”

The EP’s closer, “If You Need Anything,” is a sad, yet powerful tribute to someone who passed away. The singer is talking to his fallen friend and tells him if he needs anything, give him a sign from up above. Driven by a simple, acoustic guitar to start, the production increases and adds drama to the story when the chorus rolls around, similar to the kind of emotion listeners feel when HARDY’s “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL” comes on.

“I bet it’s nice up there this time of year, but if you need anything down here // Have an old red Chevrolet like yours drive by, put an old Skynyrd song on the radio // Make a couple shooting stars fly across the sky, hook me up to a bass at the honey hole”

“Last year and my most recent EP were all about thankfulness, and being glad to have any live shows at all,” Denning said in a recent press release, expressing the drive behind a new creative chapter. “This time a lot of that is behind us, and it’s like ‘Alright, let’s get to work.’ Overall, I wanted this EP to feel like a setlist. And I wanted it to be a no skipper.” 

Might As Well Be Me EP Tracklist:

  1. Red Round Here
  2. River Named Mississippi
  3. Buy A Girl A Drink
  4. Don’t Give A Truck
  5. She’s On It

ABC Celebrates ‘CMA Fest’ 2022 Television Special

ABC celebrated CMA Fest 2022 in a remarkable television special, recapping the events from earlier this summer. Check it out below.

After a long, but necessary two-year hiatus, CMA Fest returned to Nashville, taking place from June 9 to June 12 with the biggest acts in the genre performing at Nissan Stadium over the four-night event. The three-hour television special aired on ABC last night (August 3), targeting the country fans who could not attend in-person or who wanted to relive the music-filled weekend. The dynamic duo of Dierks Bentley and Elle King hosted the action-packed program. 

The “KB”s, Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini, opened the show, performing their current, upbeat singles “Like I Love Country Music” and “Heartfirst,” respectively. Both songs are currently in the top 40 on country radio. Brown and Ballerini both performed later as well, singing “One Mississippi” and “Half of My Hometown.” Thomas Rhett was next, singing his latest number one hit, “Slow Down Summer.”

After several newer songs, it was time to flashback to 2013; Darius Rucker performed his classic country hit, “Wagon Wheel.” Rucker stopped singing to allow the 65,000+ fans to shout the final chorus. Bentley was next, and performed his biggest hit to date, “Drunk on a Plane.” Bentley brought Billy Ray Cyrus on stage to sing Cyrus’ crossover hit, “Achy Breaky Heart” on the 30th anniversary of its release. 

Cole Swindell was next to take the stage—he sang his nostalgic tune, “She Had Me At Heads Carolina.” After, Lainey Wilson made her debut on the CMA stage to sing her and Swindell’s number-one collaboration “Never Say Never.” Swindell’s good friend, Luke Bryan was up next. He kicked off his set with his hip-hop blended-bluegrass hit, “Kick The Dust Up.” The other Luke, reigning CMA-Entertainer of the Year, Luke Combs followed with a performance of his current top-10 single “The Kind of Love We Make.” He concluded his set with the energetic, “Beer Never Broke My Heart” which really got the crowd fired up.

The show’s mood changed when Carly Pearce expressed her sorrow in the death of her childhood icon, Naomi Judd. To honor her legacy, she brought out her daughter and bandmate, Wynonna Judd to sing their 1984 hit, “Why Not Me.” Judd told the band to lower the music so she could hear the crowd sing the “La la la” part of the bridge.

Bentley took the stage again to introduce his co-host, Elle King, who gave an animated performance of her collaboration with Miranda Lambert, “Drunk and I Don’t Want To Go Home.” After, Ashley McBryde joined her to sing King’s 2015 number one pop hit, “Ex’s and Oh’s.” After the commercial break, Jason Aldean sang “Trouble With A Heartbreak” and Old Dominion performed their uplifting, top-20 single, “No Hard Feelings.” Lead singer, Matthew Ramsey broke up his little xylophone during the final chorus, an instrument you rarely see on the country stage.

Zac Brown Band performed their boot-stomping single, “Out In The Middle” right before Rucker took the stage again to sing what is undoubtedly one of the most popular country songs of all-time, “Chicken Fried” with the GRAMMY-winning group. Later Carrie Underwood took the stage to sing her 2012 hit, “Good Girl” and her current single, “Ghost Story.” From two of the most-established acts in the industry to one of the newest, Parker McCollum made his debut on the CMA Fest stage, performing “To Be Loved By You.” Russell Dickerson also made his CMA Fest debut this year—he performed “Love You Like I Used To” later in the show.

Brothers Osborne brought skeletons on stage for their performance of the song of the same name. John Osborne always provides a little bit of flare to the live show, adding an electric guitar solo at the end of the song. Lady A brought the good vibes with their new tune “Summer State of Mind” before performing the song that started it all for the trio, “Need You Now” with special guest, Breland. Before the final chorus, the band stopped playing to let the audience harmonize the lyrics.

Dustin Lynch and MacKenzie Porter performed their number one collaboration “Thinking ‘Bout You” on a stage in the middle of the audience. After Aldean gave a fiery performance of “She’s Country,” Rhett closed the show performing a medley of past hits such as “Get Me Some of That,” “It Goes Like This,” and “Vacation,” concluding three hours of high energy country music performances that will definitely make you want to attend the festival in-person in 2023.

If you missed the special, you can catch a replay of it on abc.com or on Hulu. Tickets to CMA Fest 2023 are on sale now!

Country Music Songs to Help You Through a Breakup

Breakups are tough. You think that your heart is going to be broken forever or that you may never find your person. We are here to tell you that while it may not seem like it now, things are going to get better. Are you going through a breakup? Here are ten country songs to help you get through the tough times.

“Down to the Bar” – Cole Swindell featuring Hardy

When going through a breakup, you want to try and forget your ex. “Down to the Bar” helps you do just that. Written by Swindell, Hardy, Jordan Schmidt and Josh Thompson, this song reminds you that it’s ok to head down to the bar to enjoy a few drinks to help mend that broken heart. 

“Well, take my broke heart down to the bar // Down, down to the bar, yeah down to the bar //  Let me get to grievin’ baby I’ll even throw your bag in the trunk”.

 

“Miss Me More” – Kelsea Ballerini

While we may not realize it, there are some things we change about ourselves while in a relationship to please our significant others. Breaking up with the person who caused you to change for the worse, can be freeing. Written by Ballerini, David Hodges, Leland, and Brett McLaughlin, “Miss Me More” will help you find your true self again.

“I thought I’d miss you // But I miss me more // I miss my own beat, to my own snare drum // I miss me more”

 

What He Didn’t Do” – Carly Pearce

We all deserve to be treated right in a relationship and sometimes when we are head over heels for someone, we don’t see that we are being treated unfairly or seen as a priority. Written by Pearce, Ashley Gorley, and Emily Shackelton, this song will help you realize that there is someone out there who will not only treat you right but someone who will always put you first.

“But I’ll tell you what he didn’t do // Treat me right, put me first, be a man of his word // Stay home ‘cause he wanted to // always fight for my love, hold on tight like it’s something that he couldn’t stand to lose”

 

“When It Rains It Pours” – Luke Combs

When a relationship ends it may seem like the end of the world. However, good things are bound to come from it. Written by Combs, Jordan Walker, and Ray Fulcher, this is a song that will instantly put you in a good mood while putting your relationship in the past.

“Well I’ve been on one hell of a redneck roll //  For Three Weeks Now // And it all started on the day that she walked out” 

 

Die From a Broken Heart” – Maddie and Tae

It’s ok to feel sad while going through a breakup.  There is no time limit on when you have to feel better. Just remember, you won’t be sad forever.  Written by Maddie Marlow, Taylor Dye, Deric Ruttan, and Jonathan Singleton, “Die From A Broken Heart” is the perfect song to listen to when you need a good cry.

“How does one sleep at night? // Mama, the nerve of this guy // To leave me so easy // Am I gonna be alright? // I wanna kick myself for falling so hard // Mama, can you die from a broken heart?”

 

“Whiskey Glasses” – Morgan Wallen

Sometimes it’s hard to face the truth that your relationship is over. Morgan Wallen lets us know that’s ok with “Whiskey Glasses”. Written by Ben Burgess and Kevin Kadish, this song, along with some whiskey, will help you forget about your breakup.

“I’ma need some whiskey glasses // ‘Cause I don’t want to see the truth.”

 

“Better Man” – Little Big Town

It might take some time but eventually, you will start to realize you deserve better. And as that happens, it’s also ok to still miss your significant other and wish they could have changed. Written by Taylor Swift, “Better Man” reminds you that while feelings don’t disappear right away, there is someone out there well deserving of yourself who you won’t have to wish was a better person.

“Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again // But I just miss you, and I wish you were a better man // And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand”

 

“I Bet You Think About Me” – Taylor Swift ft. Chris Stapleton

I Bet You Think About Me” is a fun song that will put a well-needed smile on your face. Written by Swift and Lori McKenna, this song that reminds you of your self-worth and you will be a hard person to get over.  

“But now that we’re done and it’s over // I bet it’s hard to believe // But it turned out I’m harder to forget than I was to leave // Then yeah I bet you think about me”

 

“New Truck” – Dylan Scott

Whether you were in a relationship that lasted years, months, or weeks, doing your day-to-day routine without them can be tough.  Written by Ashley Gorley, Ben Johnson, Hunter Phelps, and Michael Hardy, “New Truck” is about making a clean break. It is the perfect song to listen to as you are getting rid of the things that remind you of your ex.

“I need one she ain’t climbed up in // That ain’t played her favorite songs // Need some glass that we won’t fogged up”

 

“Rock and a Hard Place” – Bailey Zimmerman

Deciding to break up with someone can be a decision that weighs on you for a long time. There are the questions of whether will you be ok with the aftermath, whether you could have worked things out, etc. Written by Zimmerman, Heath Warren, Jacob Hackworth, and Jet Harvey, this song lets you know you aren’t alone. While it seems hard now, you’ll be better off in the future.

“Between a rock and a hard place // Red wine and mistakes // Tears rollin’ down your face // When I walked out that door // And that’s when I lost it”

Before the singer-songwriter was even signed to a label, he sold 100,000 copies of this track by word of mouth and social media. It’s not only a special track but also timeless. “Chillin’ It” is perfect song to play during the summer as you’re driving with your windows down.

 

“Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” – Cole Swindell

The Georgia native certainly started off his singing career strong with another number one off of his debut album. This track is relatable as it tells the story of feeling pain from a breakup but normalizing that it’s ok to miss the other person and wanting to reconcile, even if it’s for one night.

 

Ain’t Worth the Whiskey”- Cole Swindell

A true staple in Swindell’s catalog. Written by Swindell, Adam Sanders, and Josh Martin, this shows the talents of the award-winning artist’s storytelling. It’s not only a song about getting over a breakup but also a song to honor the men and women serving our country. Every time Swindell plays this song live, he takes a moment to thank not only the service men and women in our military but also first responders. It’s a special moment that you should experience if you haven’t already!

 

“Let Me See Ya Girl”Cole Swindell

With his fourth consecutive number one from his debut album, Swindell was the first and only solo male artist in the history of the Mediabase chart to have his first four singles hit number one. Staying with his chill vibe, this is another song that always has the crowd up on their feet with their arms swinging.

 

“You Should Be Here” – You Should Be Here

“You Should Be Here” was the first single off of Swindell’s sophomore album. It’s one of the first times we got a look into the artist’s personal life. An emotional song about losing his father, this song is relatable for anyone who has ever lost a loved one. 

 

“Middle of a Memory” – You Should Be Here

The great storytelling continued with Swindell’s sixth number one. Written by Swindell, Zach Crowell, and Ashley Gorley, it’s a track that tells a relatable story of meeting someone on the dance floor but then being interrupted and never being reunited. It questions the love that could have been.

 

“Flatliner” (Featuring Dierks Bentley) – You Should Be Here

Swindell wrote this song with Dierks Bentley in mind. Bentley is a mentor of Swindell’s, and it was a dream come true when the superstar agreed to collaborate! The hit song led to the 2015 ACM New Artist of the year breaking his own record of being the only solo artist in the history of Country Aircheck\Mediabase to top the chart with their first seven singles. 

 

“Love You Too Late”- All of It

A song that shares the message of don’t wait to say I love you or it might be too late was the second single off of Swindell’s third studio album. This wasn’t the first time that Swindell, Brandon Kinney, and Michael Carter wrote a song together but it was their first number one.

 

“Single Saturday Night” – Stereotype

“Single Saturday Night” was lucky number ten. Written for his new album Stereotype, this track is a fun twist on finding your person.  With a shoutout to the popular hard seltzer, White Claw, it makes you think when will your last single Saturday night be? 

 

“Never Say Never” (with Lainey Wilson) – Stereotype

Swindell’s latest number one song doubles as his first-ever duet, “Never Say Never” with Lainey Wilson. The love song lands Swindell his 11th number one hit.

 

We’re certain Swindell will add to this list for a long time coming as he continues to put out hit after hit. Nonetheless, this impressive list is just the artist’s number ones as a singer. He also has quite a few as a songwriter. So it’s no secret that he’s quite talented and we can’t wait to watch his career continue to thrive!
