Trace Adkins (Feat. Colbie Caillat) - "Watch The World End" (Show Dog-Universal):

One of the best records Trace has made since he has moved to Show Dog. A different side of the man. A hit – or at least it should be.

Ali Dee - "It Ain’t" (Independent):

Too busy. Too much coming at you. Talent is there, but

Dustin Lynch - "Wild In Your Smile" (Broken Bow Records):

Have loved this song since the album came out. Think this one will be on the radio between many magical moments this summer.

Lennon & Maisy - "Ho Hey" (Big Machine Records):

Different than I thought it would be. Really loved the folk-ish slant....

Jana Kramer - "I Hope It Rains" (Elektra Nashville):

Country’s “It” Girl releases her first tempo song, which she handles with a ton of assured confidence.

Joe Nichols - "Sunny And 75" (RedBow Records):

Nichols returns to radio with a song that shows how powerful he can be as a vocalist. He eats up the arrangement  - which is one of the more sophisticated that he has been around.
