Newest Adds to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Current Playlist (#123)


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:

Mickey Lamantia – “Get On Board” – We’re used to Mikey Lamantia as the unapologetic Outlaw, but this co-write with Marla Cannon Goodman is not just an excellently-written love ballad, it might be even a better executed one. Great song from Mickey from a project called The Cannon File coming soon.

Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen – “Shooting Hand” – Randy and Wade are back with a new alcohol-laden installment of their Hold My Beer and Watch This side project, and this tale about a handsy Sheriff and a jealous husband will have you entertained.

Ray Scott – “Hey Fool” – A great cautionary tale turned into an even greater country song, Ray Scott tells us why thinking the grass is always greener is a great way to be put out to pasture.

The Watson Twins – “The Palace” – The new album from the identical twin singing duo called Holler is well worth a listen in it’s entirety. But “The Palace” helps crown the work via the sisters’ close harmonies and little subtle call backs to Juice Newton’s ‘Queen of Hearts.”

Kyle Nix and the 38’s – “Close The Bets” – The solo band of the Turnpike Troubadours fiddler gets rowdy on this one, with the inspiration being Mr. Nix’s recent divorce. New album After The Flood is out July 28th.

Christian Parker – “You Ain’t Going Nowhere” – There’s just something about the opening refrain to this first song from The Byrds’ Sweetheart of the Rodeo that awakens something eternal in the country-loving heart. Cover songs rarely make it onto the playlist, but Christian Parker’s version of this song with the legendary Earl Poole Ball begs to be included. It comes from a greater Byrds tribute album co-produced by Earl Poole Ball called Sweethearts out August 18th

Miles Miller – “Where Daniel Stood” – Sturgill Simpson’s former drummer and short-lived member of Town Mountain has released a surprisingly good album in Solid Gold. Not exactly sure who “Daniel” is, but this song really shows off Miller’s surprisingly soulful voice with a natural delivery compelling you to believe that drumming is secondary to Miller’s writing and singing, not vice versa.
