Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line released a brand new single today that was created with a VERY specific purpose.

Being from Florida, Kelley was devastated to see that damage that Hurricane Ian caused to his home state. As a result, he created a new song titled “Florida Strong,” with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross and the Florida Disaster Fund to help provide relief to those who were impacted.

Aside from being for a good cause, “Florida Strong” is all-around a great track that is one of our favorite New Music Friday releases!

Other incredible singles that are a part of this week’s New Music Friday playlist are “What He Didn’t Do (Acoustic)” by Carly Pearce, “Wreckage” by Nate Smith, “brady” by Shelby Darrall, “Never Wanna Leave” by Josh Kinney, Little Miss” by Madeline Consoer and more.

On top of that, Ashley Cooke had a double release today with “running back” and “dirt on ’em,” and both singles are truly AMAZING!

There were several albums/EPs released today as well, including Honky Tonk BS by Randall King, Moonrise by Granger Smith and Supernova by Julia Cole, as well as several collaborations from our favorite country stars.

Some of the collaborations we have on repeat are “One Night Left” by Cheat Codes and Mackenzie Porter, “Trap Still Bumpin” by Blanco Brown and T.I., “High Note” by Dierks Bentley and Billy Strings and more.

In addition to ALL of that, Keith UrbanRandy Rogers BandAnne Wilson, Josh TurnerMaddie & Tae AND Boy Named Banjo blessed us with music videos for pre-released tracks we already know and love. How exciting!
