Spring is almost upon us, and that means a whole batch of new country songs are getting ready to pop up all over the place. Winter is usually a pretty dreary time for new music, but as we get closer to more sunshine (festival weather!), we also get a new crop of songs from both familiar and fresh faces. Here’s what’s popping up in March 2016.
Sam Hunt, “Make You Miss Me”
Boy, this record has legs. “Make You Miss Me” is the fifth single off Montevallo and is sure to climb the charts quickly.
Tucker Beathard, “Rock On”
Tucker Beathard is busting onto the solo male singer scene with this clever tune, which has almost 800,000 streams on Spotify so far.
Granger Smith, “If The Boot Fits”
Granger Smith is hoping this tune off his new record Remington can be the elusive follow-up to his No. 1 “Backroad Song.”
Steve Moakler, “Suitcase”
Definitely one to watch, Steve Moakler is making fans quickly in his transition from adult contemporary to country with this meaningful song, “Suitcase.”
Kelsea Ballerini, “Peter Pan”
Kelsea Ballerini has a good shot of going three for three when it comes to No. 1’s on her debut record — “Peter Pan” is probably her best offering, from melody to rhythm to lyrics.
Jana Kramer, “Said No One Ever”
It’s a slightly more lighthearted and bubbly follow-up single to “I Got The Boy” from her new album 31.
Josh Abbott Band, “Wasn’t That Drunk (featuring Carly Pearce)”
We got the chance to premiere this song last year, and now it looks like Abbott and company are releasing it to radio.
Matt Stillwell, “Hey Dad”
Matt Stillwell has a modest but passionate fanbase, and it’s sure to expand with this heartfelt tune penned for his late father.
Jake Owen, “American Country Love Song”
Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until March 7 to hear the second single off Owen’s upcoming album. He released “Real Life” to country radio last May.
