A weekend full of major releases, most notably Morgan Wallen’s fantastic, brand new double album, Dangerous: The Double Album, which will be excluded from the roundup, as we have a full review of it coming your way!
Let’s get tot it!
American Soul, Arron Watson– Texas based superstar, Aaron Watson released his long anticipated album, American Soul on Friday. The album features incredible songwriting, and the beautiful instrumentation that is present throughout all of Watson’s songs. Personally, my favorite songs on this album are “Boots” and “Out Of My Misery”. Watson’s voice shines throughout the album, which is deserving of love from the country community at large.
Heartbreaker (EP), Whitney Duncan– An EP that is fun, spunky and as the title foretells a “Heartbreaker”, Heartbreaker beautifully displays the creativity of Whitney Duncan and showcases her incredible voice throughout. Duncan tells these stories with emotion that is sure to draw listeners in and leaves them hooked!
By Heart, Stephanie Quayle– A song about the desire to know everything about a new love, the way you know your favorite song, “By Heart” uses beautiful imagery and Quayle delivers the vocal tenderly over the nicely produced track.
Backseats and Burnt CDs, Josh Kerr– Written by Kerr along with Jordan Reynolds and originally cut by Ryan Griffin, “Backseats and Burnt Cds” is a nostalgic tale of young love and the moments that felt like they’d never end, until they eventually did. Throughout the heartbreaking song, Kerr is caught reminiscing about those days and wondering if his ex us thinking similarly. Kerr’s vocal and production on this track work together to display the emotion behind the lyrics.
Last Kiss, Julia Cole– “Last Kiss” is another heartbreaker and Cole and co-writers Jeff Cohen and Josh Ronen use tremendous imagery to tell this story of a last kiss before an unexpected breakup. Cole reminiscences on her last kiss with her ex and how she would’ve made it last a little longer had she known it’s be their last kiss. The production of this track provides a nice backdrop and Cole givers a stellar vocal to pair with this cleverly written song.
