The Saving Country Music Top 25 Playlist has now come to the lossless format of Tidal to go along with all the other major distributed streaming formats available in North America. So now you have no excuse to not be following along (see all links below). And if that isn’t enough to entice you to listen, get a load of the newest selections, some of which might be some of the best songs yet in 2019.
New singles abound these days as artists and bands make their bid for the “song of the summer,” and Mike & The Moonpies put in their bid with the sultry “You Look Good in Neon.” It is the first taste of what might be a new album coming later this year. Texas/Red Dirt songwriter Kaitlin Butts is also due for a new record, and her new single “White River” proves that women can do the murder ballad just as well as the men, with plenty of steel guitar underpinning the effort.
Singing duo The Steel Blossoms are also know how to turn the tables on the men, but their song “Kentucky’s Never Been This Far From Tennessee” from their self-titled record is more of a pining heartbreaker, with ample steel guitar itself and the always-appreciated twin fiddle start off. We’ve waited 17 years to hear new original music from Tanya Tucker, and “The Wheels of Laredo” has definitely been worth the wait. A bit out of left field and from more of the bluegrass realm, the Damn Tall Buildings are nonetheless definitely worthy of being on your radar. Their new album Don’t Look Down is out now, and the lively “Green Grass and Wine” makes the cut.
And lastly, many have been regarding Ian Noe‘s new album Between The Country as one of the best in 2019. Freshening his spot on the playlist is the haunting “Letter to Madeline.”
