Newest Adds to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Current Playlist (#120)


The Saving Country Music Top 25 Playlist is built to keep you informed on all the best songs and albums coming out right here, right now in country and roots music. It’s available on most all streaming formats (see below), or you can just use the song, artist, and album recommendations to find something new to listen to. New songs just added.

Newest Additions:

Tommy Prine – “Cash Carter Hill” – When you start your career by releasing a Saving Country Music Song of the Year (“Ships in the Harbor”), you set a high bar. “Cash Carter Hill” meets that high bar, and finds John Prine’s son searching for his own path forward. Tommy’s debut album This Far South releases on June 23rd.

Ward Davis – “Day One” – Any of the four songs on the new Ward Davis EP Sunday Morning could be added here. “Goodbye World” might be the best of them all, but perhaps so devastating, it would be unfair to unleash it on the public without proper warning. So let’s go with “Day One” about finding sobriety, and leave “Goodbye World” for Song of the year consideration down the road.

Whitney Rose – “You’re Gonna Get Lonely” – Canada’s neotraditional country queen is back, and her new album Rosie is exactly the kind of twangy heartbreak material you were hoping for. “You’re Gonne Get Lonely” is emblematic of the high quality traditional country the album has to offer.

Joe Stamm Band – “Wrong Side of Town” – Midwest country rocker Joe Stamm really says it all in this anthemic ode to the dichotomy of American life that is often illustrated by the bisecting of our communities. The song was released in conjunction with the Joe Stamm Band being named the Emerging Artist of the Year at the Peacemaker Festival in Arkansas (7/28-7/29). EP Fort Smith to be released on July 14th.

Miles Miller – “A Feeling Called Lonesome” – It may take a while for some to not think of him as “Sturgill Simpson’s drummer.” But “A Feeling Called Lonesome” by Miles Millers goes a long way to establishing this newly-minted solo artist as his own man. Debut album Solid Gold out July 7th.

Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives – “A Friend of Mine” – Marty Stuart really is a country music marvel. He’s in his mid 60s, and still remains as cool and relevant as ever with his California country-infused new album Altitude. The whole album is worth spinning cover to cover, but “A Friend of Mine” stands out with its message.

Hot Country Knights – “Herassmeant” – Doug Douglason (Dierks Bentley) and Darla McFarland (Lainey Wilson) pair for this hilarious single from Hot Country Knights that helps open the second salvo from this 90s country sarcastic side project. It’s not even supposed to be taken seriously, and “Herassmeant” still is a hell of a lot better than whatever radio is playing these days.
