After a video surfaced of Morgan Wallen outside of his home in Tennessee Sunday evening, saying profanities and a racial slur – radio stations across the country as well as streaming services have removed his music from their playlists.
“I’m embarrassed and sorry. I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back,” Wallen shared in a statement to TMZ. “There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better.”
Just a few hours after the news broke, his record label Big Loud Records which is in partnership with Republic Records posted “In the wake of recent events, Big Loud Records has made the decision to suspend Morgan Wallen’s recording contract indefinitely. Republic Records fully supports Big Loud’s decision and agrees such behavior will not be tolerated.”
Country artists, members of the country music community, and fans across the country have shared their feelings and emotions regarding the incident. This all takes place as his recently released double album continues to break records and sits at the top of the charts.

Ashland Craft’s new song, “Two Wildflowers and a Box of Wine” is available now, November 20th, everywhere you buy or stream music. Written by Craft with Jonathan Singleton, and Rob Snyder, take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
Country newcomer, Ashland Craft is a vocalist and a songwriter fans are going to want to pay attention to. After releasing her debut single, “Trainwreck” back in April, Craft has been hard at work to follow up the major-label release. Today, she premieres her new song “Two Wildflowers and a Box of Wine.”
Coined by Craft as “the closest I’ll get to a love song, at least right now,” the new jam is a song for the lovers and the dreamers. “Two Wildflowers and a Box of Wine” is laced with powerful imagery, that southern-rock flair, and the songstress’s signature gritty vocals. Instead of being a straight-lace love song, Craft wrote a song with songwriters, Jonathan Singleton, and Rob Synder that will resonate with the misfits, the wild ones, and the star-gazers.
“I”ll be all yours and you can be all mine / Just two wildflowers and a box of wine / Just two wildflowers and a box of wine”

Back in October, Big Loud Records’ newcomer, Sean Stemaly fired up fans in New York City, during label mate HARDY’s debut headlining tour. We knew then, that the singer was one to look out for. He continues to build his momentum and his portfolio, releasing his third new song today, entitled “Come Back To Bed,” with a fiery music video to go along with it.
The country crooner lets his twangy vocals take over from the very beginning of the catchy love song. He sings about loving a girl and not wanting her to leave his side or his bed. It’s sensual, sexy, and romantic, all wrapped up in relatable lyrics and a smooth delivery. The music video, directed by Jocelyn Cooper, conveys the message of wanting your partner even more with its charming scenery and of course, the relationship between the love interests.
“Come back to bed / Baby don’t leave / If I said I need your body would you hold it against me / Don’t open the blinds / Lets hit rewind / Take our time / Re-living every single minute of last night”
The “Back On A Backroad” singer knows who he is and what type of music he wants to share with the world. We are sure fans are going to keep gravitating towards his charm and charisma, and are excited to continue to champion his new music.
Stemaly will continue to play shows across the United States, including playing at major music festivals like Tortuga Music Festival in Fort Lauderdale.
“Come Back To Bed” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
