This week’s weekly single recap includes new singles from #1 hit makers Gary Allan, Brett Eldredge along with some new singles from rising stars Chase Rice, Kyle Park and Ryan Broshear along with a couple of debut singles. Read on to see Chuck Dauphin’s quick-hit views of these new singles.
Brett Eldredge – “Beat of The Music” (Atlantic Nashville):
Could very well be another chart-topper for the talented newcomer. Showcases his Bluesy range rather well.
Chase Rice – “Only A Country Girl” (Dack Janiels):
Plenty of personality, and plenty of swagger.
Dallas Smith – “Somebody Somewhere” (VIOIV Records):
Really cool melody, and really cool flow to song. A lot of potential.
Florida Georgia Line” I’m In A Hurry (And Don’t Know Why)” (Show Dog-Universal) :
Note:Not an official single, but most talked about track from new Alabama And Friends CD).
Really faithful take on Alabama’s 1992 classic. Harmony is particularly strong.
Gary Allan – “It Ain’t The Whiskey” (MCA Nashville):
Moody and evocative. A song that ranks among his greatest performances.
Kendall Beard – “Drinkin’” (AJV Records):
Absolutely love the rawness of her vocal here. Laced with confidence.
Kyle Park – “Fit For A King” (KP Entertainment/Independent):
Nice tribute to George Strait. Really neat how the titles all fit – and kudos for using album cuts. Vocal performance works too!
LoCash Cowboys – “Best Seat In The House” (Average Joes Entertainment):
A dramatic change of pace for the LoCash Boys…..I really like it! Filled with sentimental tones that they handle well.
Ryan Broshear – “Make Each Moment Last” (Painted Horse Records):
This guy is a star in the making. The songs are there, and so is the talent. Definitely one to watch….
Turnpike Troubadours – “Before The Devil Knows We’re Dead” (Independent/Thirty Tigers):
Very rootsy, organic, and Americana-ish…..Nice instrumentation….
