As music Director for KMLE Country 108, I hear A LOT of new music. Below are this week’s suggested downloads. Check back each Hump Day for a new list of song to add to your playlist.
1. Just Breathe – Willie Nelson… He’s going down the path of Johnny Cash and doing covers of newer songs in traditional Willie fashion. This is a cover of a Pearl Jam song from their Backspacer album. Visit Willie’s Page
2. Springsteen – Eric Church… Hard to believe the actual inspiration for this song is an AC/DC concert. From the Chief album, if you don’t download all the tracks this one is for sure worth it. Watch the video for Springsteen
3. I Drive Your Truck – Lee Brice… Off his new album Hard 2 Love, featuring the popular “A Woman Like You” this track is emotional and a perfectly timed download for a Memorial Day salute. It tells the story of a son driving his dad’s truck to remember his fallen hero father.
4. Kissed You Goodnight – Gloriana… Why? Because if you like Lady A you will like Gloriana. They recently lost a member of their vocal group creating another 2 Male 1 Female group. Sound familiar?
5. Touch – The Josh Abbott Band… Texas Country is alive and well and sounding better than ever on the new Josh Abbott Band album and Josh calls on the sweet sounds of Kacey Musgraves (another amazing talent) but really, download this song. It’s tops “Oh Tonight” and the music video looks more like a movie than a music video. Watch the video now..
