Kolby Cooper Shares New Song “Mama” Out Now

Kolby Cooper shares brand new song “Mama,” out now, May 31st, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the new track below.

Country-rock rising star, Kolby Cooper continues to deliver high-energy and vulnerable music. The singer-songwriter is building a name for himself in the country music genre with his growing catalog of music, one song at a time. Today, Cooper is sharing his newest anthemic song to date. His brand new track, “Mama” is officially out now.

According to the singer, this track pays homage to the people that keep you upright. “To me, ‘Mama’ is about always having people in your corner fighting for you and wanting what’s best for you even when you don’t deserve it,” shared Cooper in a recent press release.

“I could blame it on a memory // I could blame it on my blood // But as soon as that poison hits me, I can’t ever get enough // I know I need some saving // Been driving with one headlight // I’ll get around to changing // But I ain’t gonna change tonight // So don’t put that on me Mama // I talked to God before // It feels like he don’t wanna hear from me no more // This devil in the bottle don’t wanna let me go // There ain’t no holy water gonna save my soul // Those prayers you sent through the ceiling // No they ain’t worth a heart like mine // God knows my shoulders don’t need the weight of the world tonight // Don’t put that on me Mama”

“Mama” is the perfect blend of catchy lyrics an a fiery sound full of guitar riffs and a killer beat. It is quite possibly his best song to date. Throughout the song, Cooper grapples with the desire to be saved or to continue his reckless ways. The story encapsulates a true crossroads moment, while remaining enticing and fun to listen to. “Mama” is a song the listener must listen to again and again!

2024 is looking to be a huge year for Cooper. Fans can catch him singing songs like “Mama” on tour this summer, as well as, at various shows and festivals all season long.

Kelsey Hart: ‘Life With You’ – Debut Album Review

Kelsey Hart shares debut album, Life With You, out now, May 31st, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new project below.

With fifteen new tracks, Kelsey Hart’s debut album, Life With You, is a glimpse into the country newcomer’s life and upbringing. For the Kentucky native, the collection takes listeners on a journey through love and loss and everything in-between.

Signed to Curb Records, the singer-songwriter will make his Opry debut on June 28, and it’s only a matter of time before his songs are blaring from every radio station in the U.S. From the opening notes of the earwormy “Burn My Summer” to the closing notes of the anthemic “Country in Business,” Hart is ready to make a name for himself.

“Burn My Summer” is an immediate standout, a catchy mid-tempo ode to summer love, which finds him realizing that his relationship is fleeting, but accepting of that fate. It’s an earwormy summer anthem, as he sings “Baby, burn my summer // Take my time // Put a match to it // Set it on fire // Kiss by kiss // Night by night // ‘Til we kiss the whole thing goodbye // Baby, burn my summer.”

The album’s title track is another clear favorite, as evidenced by its huge viral streaming success. On his breakout track, which is dedicated to his wife, he proclaims his love for now and forever, making it a perfect wedding song. In fact, we think it’s about to give “Yours” by Russell Dickerson a run for its title of top country wedding song.

Hart shines on love songs, as evidenced by the “You Look Good in My Shirt”-esque “Flannel” and “Without You In It.” The latter is a gorgeous ballad that finds him wondering what life would be like without someone special in it.

While the singer-songwriter may be happily married, heartbreak is a theme on tunes like “4×4,” “Man Down,” and “Zebco.” Each of these is a clever up-tempo, finding him dealing with a broken heart. “Man Down” is lyrically one of the album’s best moments, as he drinks his sorrows away, admitting “that girl knows how to take a man down.”

“Better By the Beer” may be a breakup song, but it’s a fun up-tempo that has him feeling better with each cold one that passes his way. Likewise, “6-Pack Gone” is more of a ballad, with each beer in his 6-pack dedicated to a memory or moment with someone who got away. “Zebco” also provides a moment of levity, Hart’s vocals on full display as he spends some time on the lake, fishing away an ex.

“Put It On the Map” is a celebration of his hometown and the fact that it still remains just that, while “My Daddy’s Fault” is a poignant ballad about the way he was raised that made him the man he is today. “It ain’t my fault I don’t own a 3-piece suit,” He sings. “‘Cause I’m a little more Carhartt and boots.”

“Missin’ You” also provides another special moment, much in the vein of Lee Brice’s megahit, “I Drive Your Truck.” Here, Hart recalls all of the ways in which he remembers and keeps in contact with someone who’s passed away, and the result is a stirring and relatable moment.

On Life With You, Kelsey Hart introduces himself as a singer, a songwriter, and a rising country star that is sure to be a huge name in the genre.

  1. Burn My Summer
  2. 4×4

Bailey Zimmerman Goes Number One with “Where It Ends”

Bailey Zimmerman earns his fourth number one song at country radio this week with “Where It Ends.” Learn all the details here.

In his blossoming career, Bailey Zimmerman is quickly catapulting to the top. Zimmerman has landed multiple consecutive back to back number one singles at country radio, including his first number on, “Fall In Love” and follow up single, “Rock And A Hard Place.” Additionally, the singer-songwriter found his way to the top of the charts, yet again, with his song, “Religiously.” Today, the singer adds to that streak with his fourth number one single, “Where It Ends.”

While Zimmerman has clearly perfected the combination of catchy and raw, his most recent number one single is one of his most honest songs to date. Written by Zimmerman with Grant Averill and Joe Spargur, “Where It Ends” is country-rock at its finest. The song is a true heartbreak anthem, a true reflection of wasted energy.

“Went to battle for ya always // Fought for ya on your worst days // Then you told me that you don’t love me no more // You’re the last thing that I thought I’d lose // All I ever wanted was to be loved by you // I let you back in, and I gave you a second chance // Like a jet plane on a clear blue sky // Sun came shinin’ down on all your lies // I got too much pride to let that happen again // So this is where it ends”

Congratulations to Zimmerman and his team on their accomplishment. We are excited to see his streak of number ones continue to grow!

Who is Tiffany Woys? The Story Behind Her Journey to Country Music

Who is Tiffany Woys? The singer-songwriter joined us to chat about her journey to country music. Get to know the rising star here…

Quick Facts:

Full Name – Tiffany Woys
Birthdate – July 28th
Hometown – Sacramento, California
Current City – Nashville, Tennessee
Musical Influences – Rascal Flatts, LeAnn Rimes, Celine Dion
Current Single – “Took Back”  // as of date of article: 5/27/2024

The Beginning:

Today’s spotlight artist shares a story of evolution that many people can relate to in one way or another. We first introduced you to singer, Tiffany Woys back in 2019, when she was a champion for bringing life to songs written by other people. Today, after some major life changes and a new-found love for songwriting, Woys updates us on her life and her new music.

“I was born and raised in Sacramento, California,” she begins. “In Northern California, there is a lot of country music, but there isn’t a lot of opportunity […] I always knew I wanted to do music.” Woys recalls falling in love with big voices at an early age, thanks to an early introduction to Celine Dion from her mom.

“My mom listened to Celine Dion a lot with me growing up, and I knew I wanted to sing. That was always a big deal to me, I wanted to sing. We didn’t have any songwriting communities in Sacramento, so that I didn’t do, I just wanted to hold a microphone and sing. Then when I heard LeAnn Rimes for the first time, that was really what sparked county music for me,” she shared.

Woys also credits powerhouse vocalists in the county genre like Jo Dee Messina, Faith Hill, and Martina McBride as some of her early influences. “I really fell in love with the vocalist. I love when you can hear someone and know instinctively who they are,” she shared, adding that presently, she also draws inspiration from artists like Lauren Alaina and Carrie Underwood.

Despite loving music, neither Woys nor her parents knew how to pursue a career in country music, so the singer followed her parents wishes and went off to college to pursue her degree. “Everyday I would commute home from my college, and I would visit a vocal coach, and I was like, “I’m not giving this up, there’s absolutely no way.” 

The Turning Point:

Armed with a desire to pursue country music, upon graduating college, Woys did just that. “I ended up coming home from college after I graduated, putting together a band, and toured the entire west coast, basically performing three to four hours a night, two to three days a week for five years, just building a team and trying to figure out how to do this,” she shared.

Around the same time, the songstress started making trips to Nashville, Tennessee to build out a team. “I knew it was always going to be country, and I commuted back and forth to Nashville for five years, building a team, kind of slowly… getting a publicist, an entertainment attorney, and the last thing I got was a manager. My manager was the one that was like, ‘Listen, you have to be in Nashville.’ I was waiting for somebody to say that to me.”

In 2017, Woys packed up her apartment and booked a one-way ticket to Nashville. Upon getting to Music City, the singer became a true advocate for the songwriting aspects and cutting music that she related to that was written by other artists. “I was really unapologetic about how I wanted to be a vehicle for songwriters. […] I’m a huge support of the songwriter. I don’t consider myself a songwriter yet, I consider myself a co-writer,” she shared, while discussing her journey.

Eventually, Woys realized the healing-power of songwriting, which led to her next endeavor.

Today:

Flash forward to today, Woys is about to release her newest project, I’m Your Woman (out 5/31/24). The record is the first project that the singer co-wrote on, and her most personal project to date. “I think I needed more life experience. […] I don’t think I had something so ground-shaking that had happened in my life to push me into the direction of where I felt like I had to say something, I felt really good about relating to other people’s words and putting them out there.”

I’m Your Woman features eight songs, with six of them co-written by the singer, including a deeply personal song called, “Took Back.” “Took Back” is my favorite. It’s really the one that catapulted this whole project. It’s also probably the most vulnerable I’ve ever been in music. […] This song was kind of about the idea of the ring being taken back, and it was kind of like the last gut punch you can get at the end of that story. […] It symbolized a future and a promise that ultimately will never happen. I also wrote this song from the perspective of me having a conversation with him, a conversation I never got to have.”

The record as a whole was born out of Woys trying to make sense of her broken engagement.“I had to experience things. I moved across the United States alone, getting engaged, having it fall apart, losing friends, losing loved ones, I think all of that had to happen for me to have something more meaningful to say,” she shard. Adding, “Love will never go out of style, so that’s what I prefer to sing about, so this record absolutely shares the story of me falling in love here in Nashville, spending five years getting to know somebody, getting engaged, and then it falling apart, and then it starting over again. That’s the journey that this record takes you on.”

Fans can look forward to the record releasing on Friday, as well as, catch Woys on her podcast, ‘what’s mine is yours.’

Travis Denning: ‘Roads That Go Nowhere’ – Debut Album Review

Travis Denning shares debut album, Roads That Go Nowhere, out now, May 24th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new project below.

With songs like “After a Few” and “David Ashley Parker from Powder Springs,” Travis Denning has already made quite the name for himself, establishing himself as a rising country star. He continues that trajectory with the release of his debut full-length album, Roads That Go Nowhere, out now.

On the fifteen track collection, the Georgia native stretches himself lyrically, musically, and vocally. Denning wrote or co-wrote twelve of the album’s tracks, enlisting songwriters like Josh Kerr, Jon Nite, Jessi Alexander, Chase McGill, Paul DiGiovanni, and more.

A self-proclaimed “guitar player moonlighting as a metalhead in country music,” Denning favors rock-leaning guitars and driving percussion. However, he’s much more than a wannabe rockstar, leaning into acoustic guitars, 90’s influences, bluesy guitar riffs, and airy love songs.

Roads That Go Nowhere is a culmination of songs and stories that I really believe reflect where I’ve come from, what I’ve been through, and the places I’ve yet to go and where I want to go,” shares Denning. “That’s with love, music, life, everything. I’m at that point in my life where I’m able to look back and reflect on the things that have gotten me here. A lot of them are positive and there are some negatives for sure. But I think that’s kind of everybody’s goal is to be able to look back and just be happy with the progress they’ve made and the potential they’ve still got.”

The album’s opening track “Why I’m Drinking” sets an immediate tone for what’s to come, Denning’s unique rasp gliding over a bluesy guitar riff for nearly 90 seconds before full instrumentation kicks in. It’s an immediate ear-catcher before bursting into a full heartbreak ballad, as he proclaims “I’d rather drown this hurt than let it sink in.”

Following in that vein is “I Know How It Sounds,” a stomping uptempo that kicks off with an intro that recalls Jason Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem.” It’s the perfect song to lace with pyro for an encore of an energetic show, as Denning is unusually self-aware of his country roots, fully embracing his raising with an unapologetic attitude.

The rock aficionado continues to show that side of his personality and his upbringing on the guitar-and-drum-heavy “Southern Rock,” which pairs him with HARDY. “It’s me. I was born and raised in middle Georgia. The Allman Brothers are a damn subject in school, and I just wanted this song to be an absolute fist-in-the-air anthem to where I come from and how I was raised,” Denning shares. “It’s just as much HARDY’s story, and you can only listen to it all the way up to 10.” 

While Denning may consider himself a metalhead, he also shines at heartbreak. The regretful “Add Her to the List” and “Better at Leaving” are clear examples, clever lyrics atoning the fact that a girl left him alone to drown his sorrows at the bar. “She’s a whole lot better at leaving than me,” He sings.

“Someone That Isn’t Me” follows a similar theme, a twangy, waltzing ballad that finds him longing for the one who got away. “It’s heavy. I actually almost didn’t record this song because I’m like, ‘I’m married. How am I going to get up there and sing it?’ But there’s things we wonder about, whether it’s relationships with people we love, our career or just where we are in life. It’s just the reality we face as humans.”

Nostalgia is another theme on the album, weaving its way through the hometown ode, “Going Places” and the early-2000’s Keith Urban and Rascal Flatts-inspired, “Strawberry Wine and a Cheap Six Pack.” 

“A hand me down Tacoma, with a dent in the side // Ten miles over that county line speed limit sign // Black and mild smoke out on the wind // Hot July moon, I swear that I can hear you singin’ again // First taste of love // No, I couldn’t get enough // Girl, that’s where I go, when I go back // Strawberry wine and a cheap six pack”

Denning tries his hand at universal love on “Her and Here” and “Love You Past That,” an acoustic, wedding-ready song perfect for a first dance. “I wrote it thinking of my wife, and it’s very special to me. It’s just a vow essentially – that no matter where we go, I will love you past the challenges. I will love you past the good. I will love you past forever,” He reveals. “And I just love this song. It came out beautiful.”

Both “Thing I’m Going Through” and “Roads That Go Nowhere” are reflective and introspective, the first recalling a conversation with his father, while the title track is an autobiographical ballad about Denning’s own bumpy path to Nashville and success. “I think anybody who pursues their dreams, they always run into the ‘We can’t wait to say we told you so’s’ – and I had a couple of those. But I turned 31 this past December and while I’m still going strong, I can look over the shoulder now and say ‘Damn, some cool things have happened.’ I guess it does feel good to say ‘I told you so’ after all.”

“That’s a road that goes nowhere // But one got me to Music City // One got me a kiss from a pretty smile, shotgun ridin’ // Now she’s wearing a left-hand diamond // Some dead-ended and turned out wrong // Hell, there’s some that I’m still on // But lookin’ back at that rearview, man, I swear // I’ve gone pretty damn far on them roads that go nowhere”

Both “Can’t Find One” and “The Sound of a Beer Getting Cracked” offer moments of levity, the latter a perfect summer anthem. On it, he enlists country newcomer Josh Ross to throw back a cold one, while “Can’t Find One” is a 90’s-tinted kiss-off that he describes as a cross between the Eagles and Shenandoah. 

The album ends with the poignant and sparse “Ocmulgee River,” Denning’s light vocals coasting over a lone acoustic guitar as he proclaims his love to the land and river that raised him. Of the song, which he penned alone, he says “It’s the river that runs through my hometown. This was the last song we recorded for the project and I knew it would be the last song on the record. I wrote it by myself and it’s just my conversation with where I come from. I have a lot of memories on Westlake Road, which gets name dropped in there, and that’s where I took the album cover. That has just always been a refuge for my soul, and I think everybody gets inspired by the ground they know and they come from. It doesn’t really take explaining, which is good because you really can’t.”  

For Travis Denning, Roads That Go Nowhere is truly a debut that will take him somewhere big. “I still feel like I’ve just barely scraped the surface, but with the love and passion that has gone into this record, I do feel like I’ve taken a next step from a creative standpoint,” he says. “This was a big cohesive group of songs, and I’m just at a point in my life where it made sense to finally do it. I hope people hear it and say, that’s a Travis Denning record – and nobody else could have made it.”

Ryan and Rory Make Their Debut with New Song “Pour Decisions”

There is nothing we love more than introducing fans to new, fresh, and exciting acts in country music! BBR Music Group’s new signees, Ryan and Rory are an act to pay attention to! The singer-songwriters are bursting on to the scene with a prime summer-ready song called, “Pour Decisions.”

The new single is the first of six songs off their self-titled debut project, slated for release on July 26th. “Pour Decisions” is the perfect combination of enticing production and fun, sing-along ready lyrics. The song pays homage to universal heartbreak, touching on the first night out and the feelings and sentiments we all have been through.

“We’ve both got broken hearts, tried to numb it with some sipping // So how’s about we let the liquor do the heavy lifting // Can only get so far getting over them with drinking // The only way to fix it, is to make some pour decisions // We ain’t about to get over them over night // I don’t need a crystal ball to see me a neon sign // We need a bandaid for the heartache that we can’t change // If we’re on the same page, ain’t breaking up a good thing, baby”

While it may be easy to compare Ryan and Rory to other duos like Dan + Shay and Brooks & Dunn, the singers have their own thing going on. “Pour Decisions” is the perfect introduction to that.

Vincent Mason: ‘Can’t Just Be Me’ – Debut EP Review

Vincent Mason shares his debut EP, Can’t Just Be Me, out now, May 24th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new project below.

Newly signed to Interscope Records/UMG Nashville/Music Soup, Vincent Mason is musically wise beyond his 23 years. While it would be easy to take a look at the young singer-songwriter and dismiss him as another young country wannabe, the music is so much more nuanced and impressive than one might expect.

With a unique vocal style and unspoken maturity, the Georgia native is ready to take the genre by storm. Listing one of his main musical inspirations as John Mayer, that prowess is immediately evident on his new EP, Can’t Just Be Me, out now.

“This EP is a great representation of everything that’s happened from when I first started writing songs up until now. I’m thankful to have the opportunity to co-produce for the first time alongside Brett Truitt,” Mason said in a statement. “The music sounds exactly how I envisioned and I’m excited to mark this moment in time and have it to look back on one day.”  Mason added of his signing, “I’m so grateful to have Interscope, Universal Nashville, and Music Soup help bring our vision to life and keep building on what we’ve started. I couldn’t feel better about the team around me and I’m excited to get to work.”

Laced with acoustic guitars and harmonicas, Mason’s EP is a unique brand of singer-songwriter heartbreak country music. That theme permeates the collection, as he deals with the end of a relationship throughout the bulk of the six tracks.

With over 17 million streams already under his belt, “Hell is a Dance Floor,” is an immediate standout, a clever and moody take on watching the one you love move on before your eyes. His unique lyrical style and knack for storytelling is on full display here, as he laments, “Hell is a dance floor watching a red dress // Spin around with someone new // My hearts for damn sure breaking in my chest // Watching him fall for you // Part of me wants to leave this place but I can’t get the other half to look away // Every song’s reminding me // That I ain’t yours // Oh Hell is a dance floor.”

The EP’s opening track “May Be” finds Mason channeling his inner Jack Johnson, with a song that wouldn’t be out of place on country radio or at a local coffee shop. Here, he muses about where his life was before he met someone special. “Loving you may be the only thing I’m made for // Maybe these boots were made to get you on the dance floor // And that empty bench seat was always supposed to be yours, He sings, voice laced with emotion. “If I called it fate would it be crazy // ‘Cause loving you may be.”

“Take Too Much” is a clever contradiction between uptempo music and downtrodden lyrics as he admits that it doesn’t “take too much” to get him to a place where he’s thinking about an ex. Likewise, “Livin’ Proof” finds him looking in on someone with a broken heart. “Make it in before closing time If you wanna know what a ghost looks like,” He sings poignantly. You wanna save him don’t even try // He’s living proof of a lost goodbye.”

The EP’s final two songs, “Can’t Just Be Me” and “Really Don’t” are both strong contenders for the best of the bunch, with the title track a stirringly sparse heartbreak ballad that finds him longing for answers. Meanwhile, “Really Don’t” is arguably the most up-tempo and polished track on the item, harmonicas accompanying Laurel Canyon-inspired by guitars as he deals with the aftermath of a relationship that finds him admitting, “I guess you really don’t love me, I guess you really don’t.”

Vincent Mason’s Can’t Just Be Me EP finds the young singer-songwriter wise beyond his years with a perfect blend of acoustic-leaning country.

Tucker Wetmore Shares New Single “What Would You Do”

Tucker Wetmore shares brand new single, “What Would You Do,” out now, May 24th on all streaming platforms. Listen to the new song below.

From the minute Tucker Wetmore showed up on our radar, we knew he was something special. His two songs, “Wine Into Whiskey” and “Wind Up Missin’ You” already surpassed expectations, garnering 74 million streams and counting on Spotify alone. Today, the singer-songwriter is sharing another new song to add to his catalog. Wetmore’s new single, “What Would You Do” is officially out now.

Written by the singer with Jacob Hackworth, Jaxon Free, and Gabe Foust, the new single delves into a toxic relationship, where there is suspicion of cheating or unfaithfulness. The song feels haunting, yet eerily relatable. On the track, Wetmore forces the other person to look at their own actions and confront their own demons that have turned the relationship into dust.

“Would you love you // Would you leave you out to dry // Would you lie and say that // Runnin’ don’t cross your mind // Tell me baby // Would you drive you crazy // What would you do // What would you do to you // Knowin’ you, you’d set the whole damn house on fire // Known’ you, you wouldn’t let you make it out alive // Fore you blame me // And tell me that you hate me // What would you do // What would you do to you”

Wetmore is proving to be a talent to look out for. Each of his three releases showcase his staying power and songwriting grit, all while showing that he has the vocals to back it all up. “What Would You Do” is just another notch on his belt.
