Happy New Music Friday, country fans!
As you welcome October 1 and prepare for the spooky season ahead, Celeb Secrets Country has carefully crafted a bomb playlist that will pair well with your mouthwatering pumpkin spice latte or even a strong-tasting apple cider bourbon cocktail.
While you sip on your beverage of choice, take a minute to appreciate the men and women within music city who are not only delivering vulnerable anthems, but the ones who are pushing the boundaries of traditional country to evolve with the times.
Genre-bending artist Kane Brown recently joined forces with R&B songstress H.E.R to serve up “Blessed & Free,” a soulful ballad that intertwines her angelic vocals and his country twang. “It’s just been fun to do. We’re artists – why just put us in a box?” Brown says about experimenting outside of the honk-tonk town to Billboard. “We’ll do what we want to do. Me, I’m never going to leave country music. Like I’ll always have a country single out to radio before anything else. That’s just how I look at it.”
While Brown encourages his loyal community to step outside of their comfort zone and listen to a fresh take on country, many other notable names in the industry are getting creative with their songwriting. For instance, Blake Shelton’s “Come Back As A Country Boy,” “Huntin Land” by Dustin Lynch & Riley Green, “Country Outta My Girl” by Morgan Evans, “With A Woman You Love” by Justin Moore, and of course, HARDY’s latest release “To Hank” with the rowdy boys of Nashville, Brantley Gilbert and Colt Ford.
Other buzz-worthy tracks that immediately captured our attention come from – Eddie Montgomery, Walker County, Lily Rose, Elvie Shane, Kameron Marlowe, Logan Mize, Curtis Braly, Johnny Dailey, Brandon Lay, and Georgia Webster.
