Newest Additions to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Current Playlist (#14)

We’re finally coming out of the drought for new music that accompanies the winter holidays, and heading into the season where the releases of highly-anticipated new music will be coming at us hard and heavy. In preparation, Saving Country Music’s official Top 25 Current Playlist has been provisioned with some new selections to get you through these frigid months.

Leading the charge is a new song from the underground roots band The Urban Pioneers. Their song “Fast Money” might be their most infectious yet, and debuts right near the top of the playlist. Josh Grider just released a new video for his song “Good People,” and to coincide with the release (and since it’s such a great song), it’s been added to the playlist as well.

A few songs released later in 2017 also have been added, including the standalone “One Love Song” from Michaela Anne, which hopefully will be the precursor to a new record in 2018. Emily Herring‘s heartbreaking honky tonk foot stomper “Last of the Houston Honky Tonk Heroes” feels like it was custom made for a Saving Country Music playlist. And flying criminally under-the-radar is a band called Yellow Feather that has a little Kristofferson blood within it’s ranks, and the pedigree holds true on the song “If You Ain’t Cheatin’” from their late 2017 record, And Gold.

The Saving Country Music Top 25 Playlist primarily lives on Spotify, but is also available for those who use Google Play, and now on Apple Music thanks to Country Exclusive. For those who don’t stream, you can still find the song recommendations in list form below.
