With a plethora of new music being released every week, it’s easy for a song to get lost in the shuffle. With hits from Little Big Town, Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean, the top of the charts can get pretty crowded. To make it easier for you, I’ve come up with 5 songs that get me through my day. Five new songs that need to be on your radar because they are just that good.
Songs about drinking, heartbreak, surf and sand, phases and fighting round out my top 5 favorite new songs that I think you should be listening to. Check them out.
5. Big & Rich – “California”
Warm weather here we come. Big & Rich’s song about the Golden State begs you to roll down your windows and turn the dial up. “California” is a summer anthem that’s ready to shine.
4. Midland – “Drinkin’ Problem”
If you like the Eagles and George Strait, you’ll love Midland. The new trio of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson have a “Drinkin’ Problem,” and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Their sultry vocals will pour over you like a smooth whiskey over rocks.
3. Brooke Eden – “Act Like You Don’t”
Most of us have had to deal with a broken heart and worry about those little reminders that bring that person back into our lives. “Act Like You Don’t” is the song you keep playing on repeat to help you take that space and move on. It worked for Brooke after all.
2. Adam Craig – “Just a Phase”
That moment you realize you aren’t the one for your significant other—ouch! You can hear the pain in Adam’s heartbreaking vocals as he utters every poignant word. “Just a Phase” brings to the surface those emotions that are all too real.
1. Keith Urban feat. Carrie Underwood – “The Fighter”
It’s Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood, duh. Just listen.
