New Additions to Saving Country Music’s Spotify Playlist, & Now Available on Google Play (#9)


As summer concludes and we start to enter what promises to be a very crowded fall for landmark releases in country music, new songs have just been added to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Playlist to get you ready.

The Turnpike Troubadours will be releasing their highly-anticipated new record A Long Way From Your Heart on October 20th, and recently they released the second single from the record, “Old Time Feeling (Like Before).” Dori Freeman has her own highly-anticipated October 20th release with Letters Never Read, and her new song “If I Could Make You My Own” graces the #1 spot on the playlist.

Billy Strings just released his new highly-anticipated debut record, and though most 9-minute songs would be sacrilege to put on a playlist, “Meet Me at the Creek” is just too damn good to not include. And the last song recruited for the playlist comes from another effort listeners are saying may mark the high point of a career, that being Lilly Hiatt‘s Trinity Lane. The song “Records” is not exceptionally country, but it’s certainly great, and one of the best songs from a great record.

Also, the playlist is finally available for those who use Google Play. We’ll continue to try and add formats for the Top 25 Playlist for those non Spotify users as it becomes feasible. For those who use neither, you can still find the song recommendations below.
