Colt Ford (Featuring Jason Aldean) - "Drivin’ Around Song" (Average Joes Entertainment):
Doesn’t break any new ground for Colt, but still enjoyable.
Frankie Ballard - "Helluva Life" (Warner Music Nashville):
Uptempo and fun song from one of Country’s most exciting newcomers.
Jay Jolley - "God Save Us All From Religion" (Double J):
Good voice. Great sentiment from this Charlie Daniels-penned song.
Kristy Lee Cook (Featuring Randy Houser) - "Wherever Love Goes" (Broken Bow Records):
Stunning ballad showcase from “AI” alumnus, and Randy Houser doing what he does best. A soulful showcase.
Josh Thompson - Cold Beer With Your Name On It (Show Dog-Universal):
It’s got twang. It’s got swagger. But, it stops a little short of a complete spark.
Lista Matassa - "I Won’t Ask" (It Is What It Is/Nine North):
A strong showcase for Matassa’s voice. Plenty of personality.
O'Shea - Be With You Tonight (Sony Australia):
The best of this week’s new tracks. Breathtaking. That’s all.
Ryan Kinder - "Tonight (Bigger Picture):
Brilliant production. Even better vocal.
Sarah Marince - Can’t A Girl Change Her Mind (Independent):
There’s a lot of potential on here. Consider me very impressed. Vocal has plenty of range...
William Clark Green - She Likes The Beatles (Independent):
A winner with a sense of humor. Green’s style is warm and inviting, and will leave you with a smile!
