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.
Cody Jinks – “Outlaws and Mustangs” – With his first taste of new music in nearly two years, Cody Jinks goes up-tempo and pairs with frequent collaborator Tennessee Jet to turn in a song that raises the pulse and fills the heart. “Outlaws and Mustangs” is more sincere and substantive than the title might imply. It’s a hall pass to all those who feel the need to roam, and assurance to all that love them that eventually they’ll come back.
J.R. Carroll – “Diamondhead” – You may recognize Carroll as the keyboard player and guitarist from Zach Bryan’s band, but his solo career is something deserving of recognition as well. Carroll recently released an new EP called Live From Jean Pump, and “Diamondhead” is the jewel of it. With a Western flair, it’s filled with musical reference to Northeast Oklahoma that has birthed so much musical talent in the last many years.
Sierra Ferrell – “Fox Hunt” – Like some sort of woodland creature captured in a folk story that’s more myth and legend than physical manifestation, Sierra Ferrell dazzles the mind and imagination, arrests you in a spell of charisma, and steals your attention until nothing else enters your thoughts except the marvelous noise she makes so you can attain full immersion under her spell. Push forward Sierra Ferrell’s new song “The Fox Hunt” as corroborating evidence of this captivating phenomenon. (read more)
Mamma Coal – “Dance Hall Crush” – This is the title track from Mamma Coal’s new album that’s a great exploration into the eternal truths that expose themselves in the dance halls and honky tonks on Friday and Saturday nights all across the United States.
Charley Crockett – “Killers of the Flower Moon” – Martin Scorsese’s new epic film of the same name has just been released, and Charley Crockett chose this fortuitous moment to release a song he wrote about the Osage murders with legendary producer T Bone Burnett. A master of evoking character in music, Charley Crockett’s song may have not made it onto the movie soundtrack, but it should have. Crockett wrote the song over two years ago, but only recently recorded it after hearing about the film.
