2022 has us working overtime already to keep up with all the great songs coming out on high-caliber albums from artists old and new. The easy part is finding new songs worthy of being highlighted. The hard part is choosing which old ones to take off.
A tribute record to the revolutionary Red Dirt rock country outfit Cross Canadian Ragweed and its frontman Cody Canada is on the way, and it includes a litany of cool artists from Texas and Red Dirt who all paid tribute to the band last winter at the long-running Music Fest in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
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. New songs have just been added.
Fans of country and Red Dirt’s Turnpike Troubadours were left forlorn late last month when it was announced that the band would be going on an indefinite hiatus amid a rash of cancelled shows and concerns for frontman Evan Felker, which begs the question of who might be able to step up to fill this important void.
American Aquarium, Charley Crockett, Cleto Cordero, Comanche Moon, Dalton Domino, Drew Moreland, Evan Felker, Flatland Cavalry, James Steinle, Jamie Line Wilson, Mike & The Moonpies, Randall King, Reckless Kelly, Red Shahan, Shane Smith and the Saints, Shotgun Rider, Turnpike Troubadours, William Clark Green
Tasked with keeping you up-to-date, informed, and entertained with the best new country music coming down the pike, a new set of songs has just been added to the Saving Country Music Top 25 Playlist. This includes Whitey Morgan and the 78’s brand new hard charging song “Honky Honk Hell.”
If you want to listen to a fine example of a record and an artist who embodies this Texas spirit in sound, song, and substance, Drew Moreland and his self-titled debut with his backing band The Neon Hustle is a great place to start. The solo-penned nine songs announce the up-and-comer as someone worth paying attention to.
