Newest Additions to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Current Playlist (#40)

It’s time once again to juice the Saving Country Music Top 25 Playlist with some new selections, and it starts with a couple of songs from some recent albums receiving positive reviews here at SCM. We begin with the title track of Taylor Alexander‘s new album Good Old Fashioned Pain, which is yet another 2019 entry for one of the best albums of 2019 so far, of which there has been quite a few of lately. Gabe Lee has also been stunning folks with the songwriting contained in his debut album called Farmland, and his sorrowful “Eveline” also makes the list.

Though the Saving Country Music playlist is mostly designed for independent artist who don’t receive their fair share of attention, when something from the mainstream is good enough and deserving of support, it will be considered for inclusion here as well. Maddie & Tae‘s “Die From A Broken Heart” has been on the playlist before as a song that should be on big country music radio, and one that is resonating deeply with fans. “Die From a Broken Heart” has just been released as the duo’s new single, and so to throw support behind it, it re-enter’s the playlist.

And a good discovery flying under the radar is Kalsey Kulyk, and her single “More Time.” A singer songwriter from Saskatchewan, Canada who survived her parents divorce and getting Cancer in high school, she has plenty of life and real world pain to put into her songs, and that’s what she does with this classic and reflective track.
