Price's surprise new EP is a quick and dirty dose of sassy, classy country music. "Sometimes I'm Virginia Woolf, sometimes I'm James Dean" is the lyric that kicks off the cohesive project, a classic Margo Price line if I've ever heard one. If you're ready to sit down with some old school country music with a modern twist, this is the EP for you. Key track: "Weakness."
Five by Mignon
A Belmont graduate and a Song Suffragettes regular, Mignon has been showcasing her killer vocals all over Nashville for some time now. Five is her first EP, but listening to it, it wouldn't seem like that. This isn't a cohesive project, but that's what makes Five more interesting than some recent EP releases. The listener is able to hear five different versions of Mignon, five different stories and sounds. This EP is sure to open doors for this talented vocalist and songwriter. Key track: "Summer Storm."
The House Sessions by Jenny Gill
Released in December of last year, Jenny Gill's debut EP is a combination of soulful vocals, old school pop sounds and country lyrics. She's so confident in her sound and her artistry on this little EP that it's easy to tell she's the daughter of one of the all-time greats: Vince Gill. But don't be fooled, Jenny Gill isn't anything like her father in terms of the music she makes. This EP is unapologetically her, and it's not to be overshadowed by the name of her father. Key track: "Look Where Loving You Landed Me"
Guyton's newest release is a welcome change of pace for the singer. Her last single, "Heartbreak Song," played heavily on the current pop country trend, something that her powerful, emotive voice isn't quite suited for. "Nice Things" is a stripped down ballad which lets her voice be the star of the show. For one of the best vocalists in country music, that's a must.
"Habit" by Megan & Liz
The YouTube stars' new single forays more into pop music than we've heard since 2012, but it's a triumphant and needed change for the twins. "Habit" has the lyrics of an old school Taylor Swift song with the sound of a Sam Hunt/Katy Perry mashup with a little bit of banjo. What this means for the country career of Megan & Liz, I couldn't tell you, but this song is a classic Megan & Liz jam.
"Make Room At The Bottom" by Sara Evans
Sara Evans is back! Her new record, Words, is jam-packed with songs written by some of the best female writers in Nashville, and this song is one of the highlights. Written and originally recorded by Ashley Monroe for her 2009 record Satisfied, this song is given a new life by Evans and her powerful and emotive vocals.
