Two new Playlists on Amazon Music and Spotify

My Country Music Playlists on Amazon Music and Spotify are one of the most popular elements of the music coverage. I like the strict rules on the one hand (five songs in, five songs out every week) – but very often it limited my possibilities to share songs with you. Thus, I finally made use of the Corona times and decided to introduce two new playlists dealing with country music – one for recently released songs and one concentrating on European country music. I introduced both playlists on 14th April 2020. Here is an initial overview – you will find more information on these playlists (and maybe more of them one day in the future) on the Additional Playlists page. This page will also be updated in case of song changes etc. You will find these two playlists in the new Additional Playlists menu item: New Country Songs

I had to put this playlist on hiatus as the information inflow is currently not guaranteed.

Especially during the last weeks, just having five slots to change songs on the main playlist very often lead to the situation that I had to postpone or even skip new songs, which I felt I should introduce to you to new songs more flexibly. In this new playlist, I will be more open-minded and just sample songs which I felt may be worth listening, so that I guess that each and every weekend, there will be some five to ten new songs. Thereby, I will rotate the playlist according to the following rules:

  • Only new singles (A sides) and song releases may qualify for the playlists. New songs, which for example have been part of a sampler, an album or an EP, will not be part of the playlist additions.
  • There is not fixed number of songs I am aiming for.
  • I will try to update the playlist regularly, once a week (I aim for Tuesday updates)
  • Songs will only be added in the week they have been published.
  • Regardless of the song popularity or my view on it, songs will strictly be removed after five weeks (i.e. there are four weekly sets of new songs in parallel in the playlist)

I hope that these rules give a good rotation of new country songs, which you can enjoy.

Here is the Spotify widget representing the current selection of songs in the playlist: European Country Hits


In the meantime I decided to close this playlist again


One of the key reasons why I blog in English is that shall create bridges: if you are interested in sports, you may learn about country music – or if you read recent tourdates, you may at least find some hotel reviews for some of the cities your band is playing in. In country music, I don’t only want to introduce North American acts to European viewers, but also – vice versa – bring some visibility to European acts to North America. Depending on the period of time, more than half of the visitors of are North American. Thus, I felt that a European country acts playlist would be very sensible as well. In order to present a wide range of songs, I adopted the rules under which I manage this list:

  • There are up to two songs per artist
  • I also allow for artist, which majorly perform in Europe (e.g. Zoee, Liv Austen)
  • I will update the list on demand, not regularly
  • The list includes all country genres and all languages

As the widgets above will alter with every playlist update, here is my intiial list of songs: New Country Songs
