This record was great from start to finish. It's so nice to see Hemby finally making some music of her own, as her voice is up there in quality with some of country's top stars. Key tracks include "Cairo, Il," "I'll Remember How You Loved Me," and "This Town Still Talks About You."
Carly Burruss's self-titled EP
Burruss is a brand new artist, but she sounds like she's been around for a while. With a throwback country sound and quirky lyrics, Burruss could be the next Kacey Musgraves. Key tracks include "Saving" and "Ain't Trying to Please."
Lauren Alaina's Road Less Traveled
Finally, this record is out. The difference in quality between Alaina's debut album and this record is night and day. The writing is personal and beautiful, and Alaina's voice has never sounded better. Key tracks include "Three," "Same Day Different Bottle," and "Doin' Fine."
Country to the core and quick-witted, Kim Paige's latest single is adorable. The song is a perfect mix of a catchy beat, country instruments and Paige's twangy and emotive vocals.
"Never Mine Nevermind" by Haley Georgia
This was the biggest surpise of the month. Haley Georgia's latest offering is as pop-country as ever, but it has some really solid songwriting and a catchy beat. A worthy listen for all of those who hated "Ridiculous."
"Three Minute Love Affair" by Whitney Rose
Whitney Rose's outstanding debut record Heartbreaker of the Year, was released two years ago, and she followed it up early this year with her new EP South Texas Suite. The first track off of this EP is cute and old-fashioned, everything Whitney Rose has perfected.
"Castle on the Hill" by Ed Sheeran
"Issues" by Julia Michaels
"I Fall" by Taylor Noelle
