Zach Top – “Use Me” – Zach Top is is one of the top young surging country traditionalists at the moment. He’s always had the right sound, but at times he’s struggled to find the right song. Co-written with Carson Chamberlain and Tim Nichols, “Use Me” is the right song.

Conrad Fisher – “Cecilia” – Conrad Fisher is a busy bee with a brand new album called Welcome to the Neighborhood out March 19th, and a new folk album out now called Fisher Brother Folk. But before all of that, let’s focus on this excellent single called “Cecilia” that fits perfectly into country music’s top selection of divorce songs.

The HawtThorns – “Nothing But a Shadow” – What an interesting and brilliantly dark-textured track from this Nashville-based duo, with the Roger McGuinn-esque guitar solo putting it over the top. The new HawtThorns album Zero Gravity is out April 5th.

Blackberry Smoke – “Don’t Mind If I Do” – These Southern rock gods have just released their latest album called Be Right Here, and “Don’t Mind If I Do” catches a sick groove with great tones, and delivers you into Southern rock bliss.

Kimmi Bitter – “Old School” – Kimmi Bitter is one to get on your radar right now ahead of her upcoming album Old School out March 29th. With a dazzling throwback country sound, Bitter makes her third appearance on the playlist with the album’s title track.

Brady Lux – “Little Bo Peep” – From Big Timber, Montana, Brady Lux is a Western artist who speaks to the real world. “Little Bo Peep” takes both cutting humor and absolute truth and delivers them with wit. This is Western music for 2024 that conveys the actual reality of things, and tears back the veneer. From Lux’s debut album Ain’t Gone So Far.
