The Country Music Playlists

The more developed towards a music website as well, the more I thought about how to share music with you. This especially applies to country music, which is still not too strongly supported in Germany and in other parts of Europe in the media. Thus, I decided to start a country music playlist, containing of 40 songs (maybe increase it one day). The idea is not just to promote the Nashville big ones, but also young artists. Of course, there will also be a certain focus on the Featured Artists (as long as they are country musicians).

I am more of an Amazon person, but as I guess more of you prefer Spotify, I will maintain the playlist in parallel on both platforms. The full list of songs currently in the playlist is below. I am not sure about how to update the list, but my initial idea is to replace three to five songs weekly.

There is also my New Country Songs playlist, which became more and more popular during the last months. In order to be able to maintain that list on Sundays, I will temporarily update the Country Music Playlists Monday morning German time now. 

I decided to maintain and archive my update log entries during the last weeks. If you are interested, just dare a look to my updated comments in the Country Music Playlist Log Archive.


Country Music Playlist Update Log (20th March 2023)

Times are ups and downs. This week is the first week of “getting back to normal” after a lot of traveling with Weird Al Yankovic, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Rock of Ages. However, I did not have any country releases, so that I felt that I will give you three songs I loved while driving through Pennsylvania and listening to The Highway on Sirius XM radio. All three tracks are on a quite heavy rotation and have been featured in the Top 30 charts of the satellite radio channel.

  • Smell Like Smoke by Lainey Wilson

Lainey Wilson has been one of the key topics in country radio, over there in the United StatesSmell Like Smoke was the key track of the radio coverage.

  • God Gave Me A Girl by Russell Dickerson

Listening to this song made me kind of sad, knowing that Russell Dickerson was touring Germany in parallel to my US trip, presented by Sound of Nashville.

  • Over For You by Morgan Evans.

Luckily I did not miss the concert of Morgan Evans – at least I could make it to the Hamburg show with Mitchell Tenpenny. The Cologne concert has already been in parallel to my travels. Nice song by the Australian

  • 20Something by Haley Mae Campbell feat. Julia Cole

This one is the only new song I decided to add to the playlist this week. Two really interesting female country artists. I am especially amazed by Julia, who is so active in the studio.

  • Peter Pan by Kelsea Ballerini

Currently, it is hard to have Morgan Evans somewhere without having a topic about Kelsea Ballerini as well – or vice versa. After I went for Over For You, what would be a better choice for a classic than this 2015 Kelsea song. Potential for breakup gossip in the playlist this time, I guess.

Therefore, the following songs are leaving the playlist:

  • Hope It’s Hot Out by Kyle Clark
  • Trouble With a Heartbreak by Jason Aldean
  • Can I See My Dog? by Roman Alexander
  • Miss My Daddy by Tyler Hubbard
  • At The Show by Lucero Country Music Playlists – Links
