Newest Additions to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Current Playlist (#21)

Memorial Day weekend and a long hot summer is upon us, so what better time to retrofit the Saving Country Music Top 25 Playlist with some new tunes for holiday barbecues and long road trips.

Starting off the newest additions are the super fun and twangy “Cadillac Man” by Wes Youssi and the County Champs off their 2018 record Down Low. Wes Youssi is where to point your nose if you’re looking for old school classic country. For more contemporary tastes, Shotgun Rider has been creating considerable buzz for their 2018 release Palo Duro, and arguably one of the best selections from that record, “I’m Not Alright,” makes the new cut.

Then we have a couple of new lead off singles for upcoming albums to look forward to, including Lori McKenna‘s superbly-written “People Get Old,” from her upcoming album The Tree, and Chris Hennessee‘s duet with Jamey Johnson, “Wrong End of the Rainbow.” And possibly most impressive is Dwight Yoakam‘s surprise release, “Then Here Came Monday,” which is one of two songs Yoakam has released unexpectedly.

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