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

Tasked with keeping you up-to-date, informed, and entertained with the best new country music coming down the pike, a new set of songs has just been added to the Saving Country Music Top 25 Playlist. This includes Whitey Morgan and the 78’s brand new hard charging song “Honky Honk Hell.” It’s the first salvo from Whitey’s upcoming record Hard Times and White Lines out October 26th.

Kristina Murray has a new album of her own called Southern Ambrosia, which will be released September 21st. Her first taste of the new record called “Lovers & Liars” has also been added to the list. Drew Moreland released his debut, self-titled record on August 1st, and the opening song called “Road Stone” makes the cut.

And as promised in the past, if a mainstream song is good enough, important enough, and released as a single, then it will be considered for the playlist as well. Other mainstream artists have been in the playlist before such as Ronnie Dunn, William Michael Morgan, John Pardi, and Ashley McBryde. But Kenny Chesney‘s version of Travis Meadows’ “Better Boat” featuring Mindy Smith makes for the first arena-level act to make it on the playlist. “Better Boat” is that good, and deserves to be included with the other top caliber songs at this moment in country music.

The Cody Jinks selection on the playlist has also been freshened, from his first single off Lifers, “Must Be The Whiskey,” to “Head Case,” which should be considered a serious contender for Song of the Year as things appear here in early August.

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