Newest Adds to Saving Country Music’s Top 25 Current Playlist (#93)

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.

Newest Additions:


Zephaniah OHora – “Best to Bonnie” – Any time a new song from Zephaniah OHora comes down the pike, your ears should be perked, and you should give it your rapt attention. In this instance, it comes from the Highway Butterfly tribute album to the producer of Zephania’s most recent album, Neal Casal.

Emily Scott Robinson – “Let ‘Em Burn” – A legitimate Song of the Year candidate, “Let ‘Em Burn” from Emily Scott Robinson’s new album American Siren will leave you moved and breathless. It updates Robinson’s previous spot on the playlist with the much more upbeat “Cheap Seats.”

Charles Wesley Godwin – “Strong” – Praise continues to flood in for Charles Wesley Godwin’s new album How The Might Fall, with many accusing “Strong” as being one of the best of the set. It updates Godwin’s slot on the playlist previously held by “Lyin’ Low.”

Margo Cilker – “Flood Plain” – Crushing your poor little soul in one song after another, Margo Cilker emulates the sounds of a distressed heart in “Flood Plain,” while still somehow also makes it all sound so sweet. From her recently released album Pohorylle.

T. Buckley – “Holding My Place” – From Western Canada, T. Buckley released this rather stunning piece of songwriting on his new album Frame By Frame that would feel sacrilegious to not shine a spotlight on. Whether its about a criminal being freed from incarceration or something so much more is for you to decide.

Randall King – “You In A Honky Tonk” – Randall King keeps releasing kick ass hard country honky tonk singles, and they keep ending up in the playlist, because that’s right where they belong. Would be nice if we got a proper debut major label LP sooner than later, but for now “You In A Honky Tonk” will tide us over just fine.

Mose Wilson – “I Don’t Need You” – Mose Wilson just released a super entertaining and wildly diverse debut self-titled album, and “I Don’t Need You” showcases the attitude and top notch instrumentation you can expect from the record.
