My Latest Country Music Picks (25th July 2019)

For this 21st July 2019 edition of my Country Music Picks, I already had a couple of songs on my list for some weeks. I just felt like waiting for some new songs I might listen to during my Weird Al & Grass Court Tennis Trip in New England. Here are my latest country music recommendations.

 

The Highwomen – Redesigning Women

Never heard of the Highwomen? Nothing to blame you for – they are a new country music super-grounp consisting of Brandi Carlile. Amanda Shires. Natalie Hemby and Maren Morris (see my review of Maren’s concert in Amsterdam). The four girls will release an album in September 2019 – the single Redesigning Women is the appetizer to it. Of course, the line-up of that band gives quite some publicity.

 

Blanco Brown – The Git Up

Dancing at country music does not necessarily end up in line dancing. One trending musical proof for this theorem is currently storming the US charts and air plays:  The Git Up by Blanco Brown. One boost for the popularity is the “Git Up Challenge”, which became quite viral on social media: the idea of the challenge is to present a dance fitting to the Blanco Brown Lyrics. Here is the original…

… and one of the versions I liked most when I browsed the internet – Amish style? You will find a lot more of them under the hashtags #TheGitUpChallenge or #TheGitUp.

 

Twinnie – Social Babies

Twinnie is one of my favorite artists – and also one of my favorite people in the business. Despite that personal admiration, I really like her new single Social Babies, which has recently been released. Now. Twinnie also released the corresponding music video. Hope you like her song – and the video – as much as I do.

 

Luke Combs – Beer Never Broke My Heart

If you are into country music, you likely know Luke Combs’ Beer never broke my heart. Combs might currently be the trending artist of the moment. He has five songs in parallel in the US Country Billboard charts. Furthermore, he recently was inducted as a new member to the Hall of Fame. This song is his most popular one currently. I like it – though I am not into beer at all.

 

Olivia Lane – So Good It Hurts

During the CMA Fest 2019, I had the opportunity to have a brief chat with charming Olivia Lane during a Meet & Greet Session. She is definitely a young and upcoming artists. Her EP The One will be released on 9th August 2019. So Good It Hurts is one of the songs on this disc – and I personally feel, it is a really good one.

 

LOCASH – One Big Country Song

Honestly, sometimes when I travel through the USA and listen to the country music stations, I am very often missing new bands. The rotations are short (i.e. popular songs are played more frequently than in Europe) and it feels to be very hard for young and aspiring artists to get some slots of airplay on stations like “The Highway” on SiriusXM satellite radio. Performing since 2004 and published four albums already, LOCASH are no new band, but One Big Country Song brings a very fresh teenager-happy life sound to the radio station. Nice song!

 

Emily Ann Robers – Easy On Me

Emily Ann Roberts became known in 2015, when he contested in the US version of The Voice and finally ended up as finalist. She just released an EP, Someday Dream, which already found some fans in the country music scene. An album is in production – this song, Easy on Me, is my favorite one of the EP – hope you like it.

 

Billy Ray Cyrus & Johny McGuire

Sorry, Miley Cyrus’ Daddy – just coming back from my Weird Al Yankovic & Grass Court Tennis trip 2019, I just cannot stand to have these lyrics in mind:

Or play Vanilla Ice, hey, you can play him twice
And you can play the Bee Gees any day
But Mr. DJ, please, I’m beggin’ on my knees
I just can’t take no more of Billy Ray

Billy Ray “Achy Breaky Heart” Cyrus is still in business – and his Chevys and Fords song recorded together with Johnny McGuire (former member of the Walker McGuire band) is really not all bad.

 

Leo Moracchioli / Frog Leap Studios – Take Me Home, Country Roads

I follow the Frog Leap Studios for quite a while now. Leo Moracchioli is doing hard rock and metal covers of chart songs and classics. Take Me Home, Country Roads is not his very first cover version of a country song – nevertheless I like it and felt I should add it to my list of country music picks – might be a nice one if you are getting tired of John Denver and all the others who performed this classic.
