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.

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
  6. If You Need Anything Down Here

5 Luke Bryan Songs That Should Have Been Singles

In his incredible career, Luke Bryan has certified himself as a superstar. With a killer catalog of songs to choose from, we are sharing our favorites that did not quite make it to country radio.

With 31 singles from seven albums, the superstar has generated 25 number one hits over his 15+ year career in Nashville. This included a run of eighteen-straight hits from 2011-2018.

Here are 5 Luke Bryan songs that should have been singles…

  1. “Been There, Done That” – Tailgates & Tanlines

This catchy song from his third studio album, written by Bryan and Rachel Thibodeau, is about a relationship that constantly has its breakups and breakthroughs. Bryan’s counterpart continuously calls him with the intent of getting back together. He, on the other hand, has learned that you cannot force a relationship and he is tired of trying to make it work.

 

  1. “Beer in the Headlights” – Crash My Party 

Almost every song on Bryan’s fourth studio album could have had success at radio; it was certified Platinum and was the third best-selling album of 2013 all-genre. This fun, up-tempo tune checks off all the boxes of a 2013 radio hit, but with all five singles topping the charts, Bryan switched gears to move onto his next project and “Beer in the Headlights” was never given its chance.

 

  1. “Just Over” – Kill the Lights

After another fight with his girlfriend, the singer just assumes that they will make up again, just like the past. This time, however, she wanted to officially end the relationship. Its catchy chorus is perfect for country radio, but with six other singles on his fifth studio album, it was time for Bryan to move onto the next record. 

 

  1. “Hooked On It” – What Makes You Country

There are a lot of fun songs on Bryan’s sixth studio album, but “Hooked On It” defines the theme of the project the best. With heavy electric guitar and supporting banjo, this tune perfectly paints the image of southern life. The album’s fourth single, which served as the title track, ending Bryan’s run at eighteen-straight number ones, which may have been a reason to move on from this record.

 

  1. “For A Boat”— Born Here, Live Here, Die Here

“For a Boat” is a sweet song about loving what you have and not what you don’t. The man in the song recalls learning all of life’s most important lessons fishing on a bank, instead of on a boat. Growing up “too broke for a boat” taught him the value of money, patience, family, and much more. Four of the ten songs on Bryan’s latest record topped the country radio chart, and two more singles were sent to radio after he released the deluxe edition the next year. Unfortunately, there was no room for this song to become a single.

10 Country Songs You Need to Listen to That Will Boost Your Mood

One of the best things about country songs is the way they make us feel. Here are 10 songs you need to listen to that will boost your mood!

“Whiskey Glasses” – Morgan Wallen

This melancholy jam starts any party. As do many of Wallen’s song, this just happens to one of the classics!

 

“I Was On a Boat That Day” – Old Dominion

Old Dominion songs are perfect for the summer, but this single, “I Was On a Boat That Day” is one of our current favorites. Blast this all summer long!

 

“Little Red Wagon”- Miranda Lambert

This playlist is not complete without Lambert’s killer song “Little Red Wagon.” You can not tell us you don’t feel sassy as hell when you sing this song.

 

“Before He Cheats” – Carrie Underwood

Echoing the statements from the Miranda Lambert song, this Carrie Underwood classic is another tune that is full of sass. Everyone loves singing it!

 

“Song About You” – Sam Grow

This Sam Grow song was recommended by one of our readers on Facebook. We agree that the song will for sure boost your mood.

 

“Chicken Fried” – Zac Brown Band

Every music lover is obsessed with this song, even if they do not admit it. “Chicken Fried” is fun bottled up in a feel-good song.

 

“Good Time” – Niko Moon

The title of this song does not disappoint! Niko Moon’s number one single is a bop and a jam all at the same time.

 

“AA” – Walker Hayes

Lately, Walker Hayes has been cranking out hit after hit. “AA” is another one of his catchy tunes that you cannot help but jam to.

 

“Does to Me” – Luke Combs ft. Eric Church

When two superstars combine, you know that it is going to be an incredible song. Luke Combs and Eric Church’s “Does to Me” definitely fits the bill.

 

“GIRL” – Maren Morris

We had to end this list with the confidence-boosting-anthem, “GIRL.” This one might be for the girls, but we know the guys love it too!

Jordan Rowe Releases New Song “5:00 In The Country”

Jordan Rowe releases new song, “5:00 In The Country,” out now, July 29th on all streaming platforms. Listen  to the brand new track below.

Almost a year after releasing his debut album, Bad Case of the Good Ole Boy, Jordan Rowe is back with new music, “5:00 In The Country”. 

This is the perfect song to turn on after a hard week of work. It reminds you that no matter the type of week you’ve had, the weekend is the time to put in the past and enjoy doing the things you love.

Written by Rowe, Hunter Phelps, and Driver Williams, this song will not only have you up and dancing but will also take you to church. Accompanied by an actual choir, the vocalists join the singer-songwriter during the uplifting chorus.  As they emphasize the word up, you’ll automatically feel as if you are joining them at their Sunday worship.

“Get up, everybody from the hill to the holler //  Fill up the gas tank and a cooler full of swollers // Pull up to the party with ya clean truck muddy // Stop, pop a top it’s 5 o’clock in the country”

Being part of a choir is nothing new to Rowe. The South Georgia native grew up singing in his hometown choir which started his love of performing. We love that he is sticking to his roots and continues to incorporate his faith into his music. 

Already sharing the stage with award-winning artists including Luke Combs, Rowe is gearing up for his own headlining tour in the South later this year. We can’t wait to continue to watch his career develop!

Every time Brett Sheroky releases new music, we are always so excited to share it. Time and time again, Sheroky creates songs that speak to real-life stories, emotions, and experiences. His latest release, “Life Ain’t Always Pretty” is a prefect example of that.

The heartfelt ballad expresses the duality that life is all about. Even in the darkest times, there is light and even in the light, there is hard times and grief to deal with.

As always, Sheroky is sharing his truth with his growing fanbase.

“It’s the crying out your eyes around a casket, when you can’t get someone back // But it’s the thought about how good it was when they were here that makes it hurt so bad // It’s the baby that won’t sleep // It’s driving you insane // Them smiling, chubby cheeks, makes it all okay // Life ain’t always pretty // It’s something else sometimes // But it’s the good and bad and living that makes you feel alive”

Sheroky’s new song, “Life Ain’t Always Pretty” is a songwriting dream. Every lyric is important and impactful. It is one of those country songs that every fan needs to listen to at least once.
