Chase Rice - “How She Rolls” (Dack Janiels):
Sings about pickup trucks, moonlight, and blue jean tans. And, he has plenty of attitude. I think I have heard this before.
Love and Theft - “If You Ever Get Lonely: (RCA Nashville):
Cool groove, and the harmonies are air-tight. Should be another slam dunk.
Krystal Keith - “Daddy Dance With Me” (Show Dog-Universal):
Pretty tune that could be a huge wedding song in the future. Vocally, she has come a long way.
Lee Brice - “Parking Lot Party” (Curb):
Brice adds just the right amount of roughness on a song that should be a huge summer hit. Overuse of the word “party,” but still entertaining!
Madison McKenzie - “My Friend” (Independent)
Vocally, I like it. She shows a lot of promise. Sweetly sung and performed.
Amber Hayes - “Any Day Is A Good Day” (GMV Nashville):
Amber Hayes just continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Restrained production brings her stunning voice to the forefront.
Susan Ashton - “Love Is Alive” (BE Entertainment):
Bouncy! Happy. Roll down the windows and go back in time. Ashton sounds like she is having a blast. You will too!
Chuck Wicks - “Salt Life” (Independent):
One of the format’s most refreshing voices returns with a track that makes me want to head to the beach.
Randy Rogers Band - “Fuzzy” (MCA Nashville):
I didn’t want to like it, as it starts off kind of cliche-ridden, but the chorus puts me back in his corner. Kind of reminds me of 90s era Billy Ray Cyrus.
Bonner Black - “Pretty Little Liar” (Independent)
OK. Not earth-shaking, but not bad. She’s caused a lot of buzz, so I will assume there’s more where this comes from....
