Newest Adds to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Current Playlist (#133)

It’s a new year with new singles and a lot of new albums on the way. If the stuff we’re getting early in 2024 is any indication, it’s going to be another good year for good country music as twang and quality songwriting continue their comeback.

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:

Randall King – “Coulda Been Love” – Randall King can’t help but be country, and has a smooth voice that cuts through the crowd of country singers these days to distinguish itself from all others. Mixing traditional country style with mainstream appeal, “Coulda Been Love” gets you excited for his new album Into The Neon out Jan. 26th.

The Castellows – “I Know It’ll Never End” – Keep your eye on the Castellows because they may become the big traditional country story of 2024. This trio of sisters is signed to a major label, and as they show in this song, they love to keep it rootsy, and aren’t afraid to instill a little darkness in a melody as well. From their A Little Goes A Long Way EP out February 9th.

Hayden Baker – “Is It Cold in Oklahoma” – Hayden Baker is a guy you want to get on your radar right here, right now if he isn’t already, and “Is It Cold in Oklahoma” proves why. A cutting traditional country heartbreaker exquisitely co-written with Jacob Doucet, this is what country music is all about.

Charley Crockett w/ Willie Nelson – “That’s What Makes The World Go Around” – Could a 90-year-old and an up-and-comer have one of 2024’s earliest hits? Released on New Year’s Day, this song became the most streamed track in country during the first week of the year. Charley and Willie find great chemistry in this collaboration.

Chasen Wayne – “No Stranger” – Zach Bryan recently called Chasen Wayne, “The only fuck’n legend left in Texas.” Willie might have something to say about that. But Chasen Wayne is the guy who books Austin’s Sagebrush honky tonk, along with slinging out authentic honky tonk tunes like “No Stranger” when he can.

Brit Taylor – “Saint Anthony” – Saint Anthony is the saint of lost objects and lost people. In this case, the song is about an absent and wayward lover. “It reminded me of my grandparents’ courtship and love story – my Pawpaw Hillard was a bit wild in his drinking days and my Mamaw was always hunting him down,” Taylor says. It’s from her upcoming album Kentucky Bluegrassed out February 2nd.

Jesse Daniel – “Workin’ Hard (Day and Night)” – Originally from the Santa Cruz area in California, you can tell Jesse Daniel took direct inspiration from folks like Merle Haggard and the pickin’ of Don Rich to make “Workin’ Hard” come to life. Co-written with Jodi Lyford, hopefully it’s the first taste of a new album from this true-to-life honky tonker in 2024.
