Newest Additions:


Tessy Lou Williams – “Why Do I Still Want You” – Consider this your official warning about the upcoming self-titled debut from Tessy Lou on May 22nd. It’s country, it’s cutting, it’s quality songwriting, and it’s a record you’ll want to have on your radar. “Why Do I Still Want You” is a good reason.

Parker McCollum – “Like A Cowboy” – Parker is known for writing all of his own music, but in this instance he’s chosen a song that happens to be written by Chris Stapleton and Al Anderson. McCollum said he was drawn to the song because it reminds him of his grandpa. It’s his second release since signing to UMG Nashville, and proves he’s still planning to keep it country.

Western Centuries – “No Cure” – From their new album Call The Captain, “No Cure” is a good example how even a sad song from this band can fill you with a deep appreciation for music and life.

Andy Brasher – “Crows and Buzzards” – A new take on an old song from this Kentucky songwriter’s new album Myna Bird, it makes for one of the best modern murder ballads you can find.
