Newest Adds to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Current Playlist (#134)


You better like COUNTRY music, because this update features plenty of it and in the form of some super traditional country songs, along with country songs from artists we don’t always get country songs from.

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:


William Michael Morgan – “Not Letting Go” – William Michael Morgan is back, and isn’t it glorious as he lays this traditional country tearjerker on us. Ever since “I Met a Girl,” we knew this young man’s head was on straight. Now hopefully with his deal with ONErpm, he can get back on track making great country music.

Sarah Jarosz – “Runaway Train” – Sarah Jarosz has long been admired by Saving Country Music, but “Runaway Train” off of her new album Polaroid Lovers is the first occasion for her to make it onto the playlist. It finds a great ’90s country radio vibe that’s unexpected from Sarah.

Corb Lund – “Redneck Rehab” – Corb and the Hurtin’ Albertains are the masters of telling country music stories instilled with a little bit of humor and truth. Not everyone can afford a Beverly Hill detox, or apparently, the Betty Ford Clinic. For some, “rehab” is biting down hard on a stick and being isolated in a trailer. Corb’s new album El Viejo is out February 23rd.

Bronwyn Keith-Hynes – “Will You Ever Be Mine” – Bronwyn Keith-Hynes has recently received renewed attention as one of the members of Molly Tuttle’s Golden Highway band. But she was a solo performer before, and remains a great singer and frontwoman. This up-tempo reel shows off both of these skills ahead of a new album she says will arrive this spring.

James Dean Kindle – “Meet Me At the Edge of Town” – From the authentic Western town of Pendleton, Oregon—home of the Pendleton Woolen Mills, The Pendleton Roundup, and the Jackalope Jamboree—James Dean Kindle is a cowboy and Western singer, and proves it with the song “Meet Me At the Edge of Town.” It’s the first song from his upcoming album Trail Songs out April 6th.

Charley Crockett – “$10 Cowboy” – Charley Crockett’s been dodging slurs like how he’s nothing more than a $10 cowboy from the start. Now he’s picked those chides out of his craw, and used them as the inspiration for the title track to his new album out April 26th.

Waxahatchee – “Right Back To It” – Katie Crutchfield has always dabbled around the edges of country, including through her duo with Jess Williamson called “Plains.” The new song “Right Back To It” is a great on-ramp to Waxahatchee for a country fan ahead of the new album Tigers Blood out March 24th.

Colby T. Helms – “First Snow” – If you’re looking for the real deal from the younger set of performers coming up, make sure to get Colby T. Helms on your radar. “First Snow” shows a knack for lyricism and a sincere passion for the roots of country. From his new album Tales of Misfortune.
