New Music: June 10, 2019

TONS of new music this week. It’s a really good one.

After notching his first number one hit in “Eyes On You” Chase Rice hopes to build off of that success with his latest “Lonely If You Are.”

Luke Combs is something special. Sometimes throughout the years a newcomer pops up and you just know they’re going to be a star. Combs has been that so far and his latest EP The Prequel builds on that. With five songs, it’s not inconceivable that all five become singles — and #1 singles at that. Check out “Refrigerator Door” but make sure you listen to the others.

We’ve all been at work on a Friday counting down the time until the weekend can officially start. Chris Janson has the perfect song for that situation now. “Waitin’ On 5” is his latest this week. He’s finishing up his next album that is rumored to be out this fall.

Runaway June is dropping their debut album Blue Roses on June 28th. This week they released one of the songs that will appear on that project in “Head Over Heels.”

Ryan Hurd has some pipes folks. He sings about a summer flame in his new release this week in “Her Name Was Summer.” This could end up being the soundtrack to a lot of people’s summer.

Gone West is a new country group that you will be hearing a lot from. We reviewed their debut EP Tides and the makeup of the group this winter but that appears to have been an introduction project. “What Could’ve Been” has the group asking the ‘What If’ questions and will be sent to radio stations as their official debut single.

UK Country artist Andy Brown is one of our favorite artists when it comes to straight up vocals. He released a somber one this week in “If I’d Known” as he replays certain moments from a past relationship.

Country riser Temecula Road is a fun group to follow along as they bring catchy melodies and instrumentals with their ability to harmonize. Think a more progressive Lady Antebellum. The trio really shines in their latest “Fades.”

BONUS: 

A month after Tori Kelly joined Dan + Shay to perform Speechless on the Billboard Music Awards, they released a studio version of the rendition. Major kudos to both fan bases for really getting behind that performance. Also, Tori Kelly needs to do more country collaborations because it’s absolutely in her wheelhouse. Shay Mooney and Tori Kelly on lead vocals together is truly a dream come true in collaborations.
