Here is Granger Smith’s New Album ‘Moonrise’

Granger Smith’s new surprise album, Moonrise is out now, November 18th on all streaming platforms. Listen to the full album below.

In anticipation of his debut movie, ‘Moonrise,’ singer-songwriter, Granger Smith is surprising fans with brand new music. Today, the artist released a new album by the same, Moonrise.

“It’s about a country singer (imagine that) who’s really stubborn (sounds familiar), I have a lot to tell y’all about, including an entire album I wrote for the film that comes out…VERY soon,” shared the singer earlier this week across his social Media accounts.

Each of the twelve songs depict the story of the film, which is set to release on December 15th. However, it is also apparent that Smith deeply connects to each of these songs on his on a personal ladder, as soon like “Still Find You” and “In This House” read like a beautiful diary entry. While each of the twelve songs are prolific in their own right, the title track, “Moonrise” certainly takes the cake as one of the most impressive songs on the new album.

Listen to the brand new album below!

Ashley Cooke Releases Two New Songs “running back” & “dirt on ’em”

Ashley Cooke’s new songs, “running back” and “dirt on ’em” are out now, November 18th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new songs below.

Ashley Cooke is here with not just one but two brand new songs for us. “running back” and “dirt on ‘em” are being added to the incredible catalog that we have heard from Cooke this year alone,  alongside songs like “back in the saddle”, “getting into”, and “Never Til Now”. 

“running back” was written by Cooke and Emily Weisband. It reveals unresolved feelings and ‘what if’s’ about her football-star high school sweetheart and confesses she would still go ‘running back’ to him if he asked. 

“I’ve had a few somebody news // Thought about forever too // But I run away when it gets close to that // ‘Cause no matter how far down the road // The crazy thing is I know // If you called and said you’re missin’ what we had // I’d come running back”

“dirt on ‘em” was written by Cooke, Jessi Alexander, and Alysa Vanderheim. Here Cooke admits she tends to like guys who are rough around the edges and knows enough to expect that that also means they might come with a messy reputation. 

“501s look better with some mud on ‘em // And those hands feel better with work on ‘em // And I ain’t afraid of a little whiskey stain // On your name going round this small town // I don’t mind a little static on the station // A little nitty gritty with a messy reputation // Drives in 35’s // Trouble in their eyes // something ’bout a guy // with some dirt on ‘em”

Both of these songs portray the lyrical and vocal talent that Cooke continues to bring to the country music scene. Coupled with her transparent persona and relatability, it is no wonder why she has experienced the success she has over the past couple of years. 

Cooke is one of the most exciting rising country artists to watch. From viral Tik-Tok fame as an independent artist during the pandemic, to signing with Big Loud earlier this year, this has been Cooke’s biggest year yet and there is still more to come. This past month alone she made her Grand Ole Opry debut and stepped on the Ryman stage for her sold-out two-night debut on Cole Swindell’s Down to The Bar Tour.

In July, she made her national TV debut on The Bachelorette with her re-imagined version of her hit song “Never Til Now” with Brett Young – which continues to climb the charts at country radio. As Cooke puts it herself, “this is only the beginning”, and we could not agree more. We can not wait to see “running back” and “dirt on ‘em” enter the world, and will be anxiously waiting for even more new music before the end of the year.

Randy Houser ‘Note to Self’ – Album Review

Randy Houser’s new album, Note to Self is out now, November 11th on all streaming platforms. Take a listen and read our full review below.

For Randy Houser, it was a nearly four-year hiatus for the deep-voiced Mississippi native before Friday’s release of Note To Self. Some projects have one overarching theme that is visible in each song, but this record features a collection of individual stories and emotions. Houser co-wrote all ten tracks on the album, touching on various subjects such as love, heartbreak, maturity, and of course, country living.

In the album’s opener, “Still That Cowboy,” the singer reflects on his relationship with his wife, recognizing his imperfections but hoping she still sees him as the man who stole her heart all those years ago. “Take It To The Bank” is another romantic song in which the singer confesses he doesn’t have a lot of money to his name, but the love they share is enough to take it to the bank—the river bank that is, where the two initially fell in love on that July Friday night. Both songs are on the slow/mid-tempo side, with plenty of steel and fiddle sprinkled into the melody.

“Baby, whatcha think? // We got a half a bottle of sweet red wine // A five-pack of beer and a hook on a line // Nah, we ain’t got a dime but we only need a quarter a tank // To take it to the bank”

The title track also served as the lead single. Houser lists all the lessons he has learned over the years that he wishes he applied earlier in life. “Rub A Little Dirt On It” is sort of his response to the single. He discovered that the best way to recover from hard times and heartbreak is to embrace those feelings head-on, crack open a beer, and move on.

“When the world don’t turn your way // Sometimes all you can say // Is rub a little dirt on it // Shake the dust right outta your mind // Let a cool breeze work on it // Ya feel the healing comin’ on right on time”

Although much of the album is slow and heartfelt, Houser gets some fun, energetic, honkytonk tunes on there, such as “Workin’ Man,” “Country Round Here,” and “Out and Down.” The latter starts off with no instruments—just Houser’s baritone vocals with backing bar noise. The singer states that he should be down and out, struggling to get over a breakup, but instead he’s out and down, having a good time at the bar, drowning out her memory in a positive manner. “Workin’ Man” is an ode to the blue-collar workers who bust their butts providing for their families while getting very little in return. They are the ones making all the cash, but are always getting short-changed. 

Although a low-point for the singer, the sixth track, “Call Me” is a high point on the album. Depressed from loneliness and heartache, the singer pleads his ex gives him a late-night call, even if she has nothing good to say about him.

“Call me a liar, call me a loser // Call me you no can son of a boozer // Call me the devil, call me a clown // Call me right now and cuss me out // But call me”

Houser’s 2019 record, Magnolia  was met with high praise from critics but had underwhelming success in the mainstream, likely due to its traditional sound and personal subject matter. Houser, who found his biggest success with hits in the early/mid-2010s such as “How Country Feels,” “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight,” and “We Went,” were much more radio-friendly. Houser clearly sticks to that traditional sound and writes from the heart on this project, but the lyrics feel a little bit more relatable. Like Houser’s incredible, one-of-a-kind vocal talent, Note To Self may be a record that resonates with listeners for years to come!

Craig Morgan ‘God, Family, Country (Deluxe Edition)’ – Album Review

Craig Morgan’s new album, God, Family, Country (Deluxe Edition) is out now, November 11th on all streaming platforms. Take a listen and read our full review below.

Throughout his impressive twenty plus year career, Craig Morgan has become known for releasing country music with heart. Now, over two years since the May 2020 release of his album, God, Family, Country, the Tennessee native is back with a deluxe edition, featuring four new songs, in addition to some of his biggest hits. 

For the Army veteran, the Veteran’s Day release of the album has special meaning and comes in support of Morgan’s new memoir of the same name, as well as a concert at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium

While the album features some of his biggest hits, including “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” “Almost Home,” “My Kind of Woman,” and “Lotta Man (In That Little Boy),” there’s just as much meaning on the newer offerings.

Of the four new songs on the project, it’s the current single “How to Make a Man” that’s an immediate standout. Here, Morgan grapples with the struggles of life that make a man who he is. The song is driving and introspective as the golden-voiced crooner deals with the bumps and bruises life has to offer.

“It’s the good days, bad days, goodbye heartbreaks // Tail lights fading ’cause you didn’t say enough // The loss and the tears and the laughs and the beers // The wars you fight, the ones you walk away from // You run, you crawl, you rise, you fall // You hit your knees ’til you learn to stand // Yeah, that’s how you make a man”

Additionally, Morgan is both introspective and celebratory on the other new tracks, including “Sounds Like Home,” which celebrates all the special sounds that make a home special and unique. From church bells ringing to porch swings creaking, the track features female powerful background vocals that add a special touch and push Morgan to stretch his own vocal chops.

Likewise, “Ask Him” is a touching tribute to asking an older person about their past, allowing him to impart his knowledge and speak of a special someone. “Ask him ‘bout the good book, and he’ll quote John 3:16,” He croons. “Ask him ‘bout a tractor, and he’ll preach some John Deere green, He’ll say, ‘If you drive a Ford, you can’t go wrong,’ But ask him about her, and he’ll go on, and on, and on.”

Lastly, there’s “I May Drink A Little,” a heartfelt ballad that finds Morgan embracing his imperfections in the eyes of God. “I may drink a little,” He muses, “But I still love Jesus.”

The other tracks on the album include his fervent faith in his family, his God, and his country. This weaves its way through the title track, “Sippin’ On the Simple Life,” and “The Father, My Son, and the Holy Ghost,” the incredibly powerful dedication to his son Jerry, who passed tragically in a boating accident. 

Meanwhile, “Soldier” finds him putting his own spin on a Gavin DeGraw track, while both “Going Out Like This” and “Whiskey” find him dealing with the end of a relationship. On the deluxe edition of God, Family, Country, Craig Morgan continues to show himself as an artist with heart, and a true dedication to his family, his faith, and his flag.

Craig Morgan – God, Family, Country (Deluxe Edition) Track List:

  1. “The Father, My Son, and The Holy Ghost” (Craig Morgan)
  2. “Soldier” (Gavin DeGraw)
  3. “Going Out Like This” (Craig Morgan, Michael Rogers, Korey Hunt, Sam Banks)

Brantley Gilbert ‘So Help Me God’ – Album Review

Brantley Gilbert’s new album, So Help Me God is out now, November 10th on all streaming platforms. Take a listen and read our full review below.

Over three years since the release of his Fire and Brimstone album, Brantley Gilbert is back with his sixth studio album, So Help Me God. On the ten-track collection, Gilbert co-wrote each song, enlisting some of Nashville’s biggest names and fellow artists including Jason Aldean, HARDY, Randy Montana, Toby Keith, Michael Ray, and Jelly Roll.

For the Georgia native, the time between albums was intentional, allowing him to release a project he’s happy with. “I’ve always taken a little longer than most artists, especially in this genre, to put an album out and that’s partly to do with me being a perfectionist,” Gilbert reveals. “But we’ve been looking forward to getting this album out for a long time. I’ve been blessed to sit down with some of the best writers in the country, and I feel like we’ve written some wonderful stuff.”

One of the album’s immediate standouts is its first track, “Heaven By Then,” which was born from a writer’s retreat and features special appearances by Blake Shelton and Vince Gill. On the incredibly poignant track, they sing of hoping they’re in heaven by the time the best things in life no longer exist. “No, I don’t wanna go today, but I don’t wanna live down here at a place that thinks that that place don’t exist,” They sing. “If there comes a day this country’s somewhere country don’t fit in // Hell, I hope I’m in Heaven by then.”

“It came out of a conversation,” Gilbert reveals of the track. “A guitar ended up in HARDY’s lap, which is usually a good sign that it’s about to turn into something special. I think we all knew that as it was being written. It came to life that night. To have Blake Shelton and Vince Gill on the song meant so much to me. Those two brought so much to the table and gave it a voice I didn’t have. We were all in separate places when we recorded, but it was a cool way for everyone to put their spin on it. They just did what felt natural and sonically you hear that.”

The Valory Music artist shines brightest when he slows things down, with his gruff growl emotive and powerful on songs like “Miles Of Memories” and “She’s the One.” On the incredible “How To Talk To Girls,” Gilbert grapples with being a ‘Girl Dad’, wondering how to broach hard subjects with his little girl. “’Cause this angel hangs on every word I say // She’s gettin’ so much more from me than my last name,” He sings. “Everything just like her momma // She’s got me at a loss for words // I guess I’m still learnin’ // How to talk to girls.”

The brooding “Rolex on a Redneck” enlists Jason Aldean as they celebrate all the good things that money can buy. Jelly Roll joins Gilbert on the driving, genre-bending “Son of the Dirty South,” while “The Worst Country Song of All Time” is a tongue-in-cheek romp featuring HARDY and Toby Keith. On the latter, the trio muse about all of the things that would make a country song terrible, including a chorus that goes, “I love cities and traffic jams // I don’t want a house or a piece of land // I deserve a bunch of money and a minivan // I don’t wanna earn a dime // Old Yeller didn’t make me sad // I think we should change the American flag // This is the worst country song of all time.”

 

The album ends with a one-two punch of poignancy. There’s the powerful “Gone But Not Forgotten,” a song of remembrance for those who died too young, followed by the album’s titular track. On “So Help Me God,” Gilbert is at his lowest and most vulnerable, seeking help from God to deal with his vices and not lose the woman he loves.

“So help me God, I’m gonna change // I’ll pour this bottle down the drain // Send that devil’s water to Hell where it belongs // So help me God, I’ll change her mind // I’ll walk by faith, I’ll walk that line // Lord, I’ll show hеr I can do this on my own // So help me God.”

On So Help Me God, Brantley Gilbert crafted an album that is both cohesive yet features ten standout tracks. “We wanted to put songs that sounded good together, but also songs that covered a wide variety of genre influences,” Gilbert reveals. “There’s a lot of different songwriting styles on the album. We’re super excited about it, and I can’t wait for BG Nation to hear what we’ve been working on.”

Brantley Gilbert – So Help Me God Track List:

  1. “Heaven by Then” with Blake Shelton featuring Vince Gill (Brantley Gilbert, Brock Berryhill, Michael Hardy, Jake Mitchell, Randy Montana, Hunger Phelps, Taylor Phillips)

Leslie Jordan, Blanco Brown, and LOCASH: “Let It Slide”

Leslie Jordan, Blanco Brown, and LOCASH collaborate on Leslie Jordan’s song idea, “Let It Slide,” out now on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand-new collaboration below.

The world was devastated to hear about the passing of beloved talent and personality, Leslie Jordan nearly two weeks ago at the young age of 67. Known for his roles on screen and stage including “Will & Grace,” “The Cool Kids”, “American Horror Story,” and “Sordid Lives,” among others, he was just beginning his career as a singer, releasing a country/gospel album last year titled “Company’s Comin’” featuring artists such as Chris Stapleton, Dolly Parton, and Brandi Carlile. Today, we celebrate the release of his new track, his last gift to fans, “Let It Slide” with LOCASH and Blanco Brown.

Move over “Cha-Cha Slide.” This fun, pop-country tune is all about throwing your worries away and enjoying the moment. Lyrically, it’s simple and silly, and its funky rhythm mixed with the artist’s banter in between verses makes an amusing song perfect for a night at a honky-tonk.

“Let it slide to the left, slide to the right // Let it roll right off of your back, to your backside, get electrified // Let it roll right into your hips, shake it off like a Polaroid pic // Let it slide, slide, slippety slide // Kiss your blues bye-bye”

This song is right up Brown’s alley, who initially gained publicity with his 2019 hit, “The Git-Up.” This track fits LOCASH’s persona as well, known for tailgate hits such as “One Big Country Song” and “I Love This Life.”
