Country Music Playlists Log Archive

I felt sad that I every week delete my comments on why I updated the Country Music Playlists with certain songs. Thus, I decided to archive the comments over the last weeks. Just repeating… But I felt that it is a nice log if you just want to look it up (and finally… If you don’t like it… Just skip that page 🙂 ).

I had to move annual tranches of this log archive to dedicated pages. Here are the sub-pages per calendar year (completed calendar years):

Country Music Playlist Update Log (30th January 2023)

This week has been really, really tough. I am not up to my full physical and mental potential. Furthermore, the crazy weeks between February and mid-March 2023 are getting closer. On top of that, the list of new country music releases has been massive. Thus, I had a tough time to select tracks for the two playlists. Hope you like my selection.

  • Blacked Out by Elle King

A great new album by Elle King this weekend. I did not make to review Come Get Your Wife, but I loved to listen to it. Blacked Out is an amazing powerful blast.

  • Borrowed Time  by Vic Allen

So glad that the dear Vic Allen finally made and and released her debut album. Unfortunately, there are just two new songs, so I had an easy selection picking one track from Some Place I’d Rather Be.

  • 1995 by JD Darling

A nice new single with a nostalgic touch – a track to enjoy, which really feels like a mid-1990’s one. I absolutely loved to listen to it.

  • Miss My Daddy by Tyler Hubbard

There are so many wonderful releases this week. One of them is the 18 track self-titled new album by Tyler Hubbard. Apart from some classics, this new song is one of the emotional highlights of it.

  • Red Letter Day by Joe Henry

This song is how Joe Henry closes his beautiful album All The Eye Can See – I just felt I can’t choose a better option to close my five playlist additions this week than that track.

Therefore, the following songs are leaving the playlist:

  • 5 Foot 9 by Tyler Hubbard
  • Devil Woman by Caleb Lee Hutchinson
  • Never Left Memphis by Austin Jenckes
  • Medicine by Sydney Mack
  • For the Best by Rob Wolf


Country Music Playlist Update Log (23rd January 2023)

As I had to compensate for some cancelled flight plans, I more or less started my active preparation for the Weird Al Yankovic Tour this week. I feel quite exhausted. At least I can promise to you that there will be some amazing

  • Happier by First Time Flyers

These guys are my country music topic of the week. The amazing Jake Morrell, the mastermind of country music Tim Prottey-Jones, the very talented Poppy Fardell and Vicki Manser, whom I started in the role of Regina last year in the British version of the musical Rock of Ages. Four incredibly good artists form a country music super-group, the First Time Flyers. Their debut single is great. Keep my fingers crossed for them.

  • I Ain’t in the Country No More by Hardy

Hardy released the mockingbird & THE CROW, his new 17 track album, this weekend. I simply had too many releases already in preparation for the weekend and could not feature it – but here is one of my favorites.

  • No Time Soon by Jordan Davis

Jordan Davis is indeed one of the most characteristic voices in the country music business. No Time Soon is his new single release, which absolutely deserves to be mentioned in here.

  • Another Night Out by Vinny Tovar

This song is the title track of the five song EP by Vinny Tovar, which has been released on 20th January 2023 as well. Great country music sound with a touch of rock.

  • Glad Our Bridge has burned by Richard Lynch

Richard Lynch’s album Radio Friend started my weekend music coverage this week. I went for one of my favorites.

Therefore, the following songs are leaving the playlist:

  • King of Hearts by Lizzie Cates
  • Lady Like by Ingrid Andress
  • The Song in my Head by Julianne Hough
  • No Way by Sam + Sam
  • Heart Like Mine by Lucas Sousa


Country Music Playlist Update Log (16th January 2023)

The music scene is warming up again: after I had to check a huge bunch of songs for my this week’s Songs of the Week posting, the level of new songs on the country music side was still rather moderate. However, there were quite a bunch of really good listens. No classics this time, but five new songs – hope you enjoy.

  • Change of Heart by Margo Price

Margo Price opened the Media Review section this week with my thoughts about Strays. I felt she should also open the list of new songs at the playlist. Here is

  • Blood from a Stone  by Duncan Toombs

The album Steel on Steel is a very interesting album release this week. Unfortunately, I just did not have the time to listen to the entire album – but I introduce you to this single, which is quite fun.

  • Shoot Tequila by Tigirlily Gold

I have no clue when the Tigirlily in fact turned into gold – but the single release as such is a good one. And why not having some country music party vibes in here? I like it!

  • Girl Out Of Nowhere by Emily Lockett

Emily Lockett – I just keep my fingers crossed for that girl. I am sure she can do even better than in her What The Hell Have I Got Myself Into? – but it is a nice EP with some good songs. I went for the Girl Out of Nowhere.

  • Love Someone by Zye Ca$h

I introduced you to Zye Ca$h in my Spotlght interviews this week. One rationale was his new single release, Love Someone. Here is  listen.

Therefore, the following songs are leaving the playlist:

  • Worth It by Jessica Lynn
  • Home Run by Christian Parker
  • In case you didn’t know by Brett Young
  • Redneck Country Boys by Alaura Lynne
  • Country as Hell by Kyle Coulahan ft. Carlos Kane


Country Music Playlist Update Log (9th January 2023)

Yee-haw! I feel we are back in the music business. While I hardly made to find half a dozen new country songs for my playlists, my long list this time was close to thirty candidates. I introduced you to thirteen of them in my New Country Songs playlists already, and four of them also made it to this selection of songs.

  • Tulsa by Elle King

Already when I listened to this song for the first time, I absolutely loved it. Great new release by Elle King – did you by the way know that her civil surname is quite German (Schneider) and her daddy was a cast member of Saturday Night Live?

  • I Hate Cowboys by Chase Rice

Chase Rice knows how to deliver great songs – and I Hate Cowboys is another really good write. Thumbs up!

  • Can I See My Dog? by Roman Alexander

Roman Alexander grew up in Kansas City. He is a very interesting artist on the rise… and I loved this love song to his pet. Hope Mr Woofie is appreciating it.

  • Cruise by Florida Georgia Line

Cruise is the only “classic” addition to the playlist this week. I just felt to flush the playlist with some rather new tracks. Hope you enjoy getting that push into the country music year 2023 – and still listening to this Florida Georgia Line classic.

  • Love her like I would by Patrick Carpenter

I don’t know too much aber the Mississippi-origin artist Patrick Carpenter and his music – but I definitely feel that his Love her like I would is worth to be added to this playlist. Hope you agree.

Therefore, the following songs are leaving the playlist:

  • Suitcase by Vic Allen
  • Never Wanted Nothing More by Dalton & the Sheriffs
  • I Swear by John Michael Montgomery
  • Primrose Hill by Sarah Darling
  • Chirstmissing You by Kayley Bishop


Country Music Playlist Update Log (2nd January 2023)

I guess, next weekend will be more intense again (I am already working on some reviews for the next weeks as well) – but there have been at least some nice last songs of 2022 – and some songs of that year which just deserve some focus in early 2023. Here are my five country music playlist additions.

  • Devil & an Old Six String by Jacob Bryant

I just selected Bar Stool Preacher as my Favorite Country Music Album 2022. Time to feature another song of this amazing album. Here is one of my favorites.

  • Heart Like Mine  by Lucas Sousa

Lucas released his new seven track EP Aces & Eights on Friday. I decided against having a full review of teh release, but at least I share my favorite track with you.

  • Hit the Floor by Derrick Flowers

Derrick Flowers’ new release is taking over the country rock role this week. Good, straight forward listen.

  • Country as Hell by Kyle Coulahan feat. Carlos Kane

Country rap songs don’t make it that often to the playlist. However, I really loved this new realease. Enjoy the groove!

  • wrong girl by Lindsay Ell

Another praise in regards of music goes to Lindsay Ell, who has been selected as the Best Concert Performance in my Best Ones 2022 posting. Here is one of her amazing heart theory songs. Simply love her.

Therefore, the following songs are leaving the playlist:

  • Holy Jeans by Adam Doleac
  • Driveway by Kenny Foster
  • Santa Claus was my Uber Driver by Lee Brice
  • Ich wär dabei by Nik Wallner
