Ready for new music? Here are some dates you need to know about!

  • Print

There are a LOT of CDs getting ready to come out! I think you might have to take out a loan or pick up an extra job to afford all the music that's getting ready to come out between now and then end of the year. I'll update this as I get more information...super excited to listen too all this new music!

So here you go - mark your calendars!

August 19

Chase Rice "Ignite The Night" - 15 tracks, 12 of them he co-wrote, (you'll get four more songs if you buy it through iTunes), and it will be released on his late father's birthdate. His Dad will be smiling down.

Joel Crouse "Even The River Runs" - He signed his record deal at only 19 and at 22 he's getting ready to put out his debut CD. He co-wrote all ten tracks.

Nashville Outlaws - A Tribute to Motley Crue - 15 covers of Motley Crue songs (and even some help from some of the Motley Crue guys on some songs) from country artists like Brantley Gilbert and Justin Moore to Darius Rucker, Big and Rich to the Eli Young Band. I've heard some of the songs and was very surprised at just how much the country artists changed up some of the songs. This will be a very interesting CD! I think in a very fun way.

August 27

Brad Paisley "Moonshine in the Trunk" - Brad's been "leaking" some of the songs through twitter and other social media so you might have hear some snippets already. A Brad CD is ALWAYS something to look forward to. This is his 11th CD and I can't wait to hear it!!!

September 9

Lee Brice "I Don't Dance - Lee says this CDis a mix of all his favorite musical influences, from Bruno Mars to Hank Jr. Now that could create an interesting mix! 

Dustin Lynch " Where It's At" - This is Dustin's SECOND CD and if his first CD is any indication, it's going to be great. (His first one was in my Top 10 the year it came out). It will have 15 songs on it - a bargain!

September 16

Tim McGraw "Sundown Heaven Town" - The basic CD will have 13 tracks on it - but the deluxe version will have 18! Get the deluxe! And this includes a "collaboration" with Kid Rock. Interesting...

George Strait "The Cowboy Rides Away: Live from AT&T Stadium" - That pretty much says it all!

September 23

Kenny Chesney "The Big Revival" - Kenny has taken this year off from touring to make this CD. He NEVER does that! And from what I've heard from people who have heard it, everyone says it is amazing. 

Big and Rich "Gravity" - This new CD will be the first off their record label (not surprisingly named Big and Rich Records). Having their own label gives them all the creativity as well as SAY as to what goes on the CD. Including a collaboration with Tim McGraw!

September 30

Blake Shelton "Bringing Back The Sunshine" - USUALLY there is several months between the release of the first single off a new CD and the release of the CD. Not this time. Blake will release the single on August 18th...and just weeks later he'll release the entire CD. Awesome! Love not having to wait for months. (This will be his 11th CD! Interesting that him and Brad Paisley have put out the same number of CDs.)

Lady Antebellum "747" - In the past they have written most of their songs - but with this CD they also included other songs they didn't write. Makes me think they might be changing up their sound slightly.

October 21

Little Big Town "Pain Killer" - I read that Blake Shelton heard this CD and LOVED it. I've heard from a friend at their label that it is "amazing". I can't WAIT to hear it! 13 tracks on it.

AND there should be new music from Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and more artists so stayed tuned for updates!
