Miranda Lambert's brand new double album The Weight of These Wings just dropped, and it's an album that tells the story of heartbreak, but also the story of a woman who's not perfect. This is a misfit's anthem, for all of those people who have issues and problems, but who manage to get through, by using "alcohol as a sedative" or any other way. Lambert's quirky side is shown in this song, and it's a hell of a lot of fun.
"If My Heart Had A Heart" by Hannah Ellis
This new demo is one of Ellis's best work. It's raw, vulnerable, and it characterizes the heart as a living organism, bringing a new meaning into the phrase 'heart break.' Ellis is great at taking heavily used topics and changing them into something that feels new, and this song is a perfect example of that.
"My Ex" by Emma White
Emma White's newest single is this song, titled "My Ex." This is a different direction for White, as her most recent project favored acoustic sounds and the ones before that had a pop-R&B blend. This sound suits White, with the louder guitars and the pop beats complementing her sweet voice.
"The One I Love" by Towne
Towne, made up of Jon Decious and Steevie Steeves, is a duo doing an incredible job blending different sounds into a unique vibe. This song is eerie and guilt-striken, and the production and Steeves' vocals reflects that.This isn't a song for traditional country fans, but Towne is pushing the boundaries in the best way possible.
"Blush" by Maybe April
Maybe April isn't a very well-known name yet, but out of the up and coming female country groups, this one is one of the most promising. They blend bluegrass, country and pop into an infectious and rootsy sound that sounds unlike anything in country music today. Not to mention, all of the harmonies are incredible. This is a song to take a listen to.

"He's Just Not That Into You" by Kalie Shorr
Shorr continues to prove that she's a songwriter of great ability, and that she's fabulous at creating catchy pop-country hooks. This song is no exception, and the funny yet realistic story is incredibly relatable to all women. Her vocals sound great, and the production is better than ever. This is another hit-in-making.
