Newest Adds to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Current Playlist (#139)


It’s an embarrassment of riches these days trying to keep up with all the best songs and albums. That is why this particular playlist update includes an unprecedented 11 new songs. Trying to fit them all into 25 slots (and failing) is a good problem to have.

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:


Jesse Daniel (feat. Ben Haggard) – “Tomorrow’s Good Ol’ Days” – Something tells you Merle himself would be proud of what Jesse Daniel and son Ben have put together here. From Daniel’s upcoming album Countin’ The Miles out June 7th

Kelsey Waldon feat. Margo Price – “Traveling The Highway Home” – An absolute cooker from Kelsey Waldon from her upcoming covers album There’s Always A Song out May 10th. Originally written by Frankie and Walter Bailes and recorded by Molly O’Day, it’s the definition of a road song.

Conrad Fisher – “I Hate To See The Flowers Die” – Conrad Fisher has all of a sudden become one of the most prolific songwriters in country, releasing songs and albums left and right. But the quality is not suffering. This song was inspired when Fisher worked at a funeral home is proof positive.

Emily Nenni – “Drive and Cry” – If you’re looking for full tilt twang, don’t navigate any further than the title track of Emily Nenni’s new album.

Laurie Lewis – “Trees” – Wow. The folk and bluegrass legend turns in a stunning acapella original that awakens memories of Ralph Stanley and “O Death” completely out of the blue. “Trees” is the title track to Laurie’s upcoming May 31st album, and also features Hasee Ciacco, George Guthrie, and Tom Rozum on vocals.

Matt Masters – “How Many Days Until Tomorrow” – An excellently written and performed song by this Canadian artist, with the harmony vocals from Kendel Carson coming in like Emmylou Harris.

India Ramey – “Ain’t My First Rodeo” – From East Nashville, India Ramey gets you ready for her upcoming album Baptized By The Blaze with this twangy and fun track.

Scotty McCreery – “Lonely” – Go Scotty! The mainstream country star has always charmed us with the richness of his voice and the occasional traditional country song. That’s what he turns in here with “Lonely.” From his upcoming album Rise & Fall out May 10th.

Tyler Childers – “Going Home (Live)” – Captured in 2015 on the Mountain Stage program as part of West Virginia Public Radio, this version of “Going Home” is the only one we have in recorded form. Childers regularly featured the song early on in his career, and it’s the crown jewel of the new Oh Bo Records compilation Live On Mountain Stage: Outlaws and Outliers out now.

Wyatt Flores – “Wish I Could Stay” – The young and viral songwriter proves that country is part of his primary influences with this waltz-timed, fiddle and steel heartbreaker from his most recent EP, Half Life.

Charley Crockett – “Ain’t Done Losing Yet” – Charley Crockett’s new album $10 Cowboy isn’t about where he’s at, but how he got here, recalling the trials and tribulations he endured on his way up. “Ain’t Done Losing Yet” is a good testament to now matter how low you get, there’s always a way up.
