Michael Ray “Get Her Back”

If you’re a Country music fan, you know of the Carly Pearce/Michael Ray divorce drama.  They were married for less than a year, we ALL over each other, then BOOM: Over.

It’s what celebrities do.

Well, Carly Pearce came out with some great songs alluding to what happened like “Next Girl” and her latest #1 “What He Didn’t Do” which were obviously about Michael.

Damn. Michael definitely left some emotional scars, right?

Well, after a couple of years, Michael tells fires back with his new single “Get Her Back”, and of course, he used a Carly Pearce lookalike for the video.

Oooohhhhh… Drama, drama!

It’s actually a decent song, though.

Really, though, noone knows what happened behind closed doors, and who really is the villan here.  But nothing has been better for Carly’s career than this heartbreak, and maybe Michael wants a piece of that pie.

Having interviewed Carly in the past, I have to say I do love her, and she is one of the sweetest, down-to-earth women I have had the pleasure to speak with. I really haven’t ever met Michael- the time I was behind them at the Green Hills Mall when they were still dating doesn’t count- but I wish them both all the best!

I guess that’s the silver lining with break-ups in the music industry. You know you’ll get some emotional bangers out of it!

Also, Michael Ray will release his new EP “Dive Bars and Broken Hearts” on June 23rd.

Stay tuned…



Conner Smith Interview and New Single “Creek Will Rise”

Conner Smith is one of the hottest up-and- coming Country acts right now, and his new single “Creek Will Rise” came across my desk recently, so I gave it a listen, and I was immediately hooked!

I’m thinking “Song of the Summer” material for sure.

Plus, Conner was cool enough to call in and chat about the song and all he’s got going on in 2023, including a tour with Luke Bryan!





Seriously, I can’t wait to hear more from Conner, and I think he’s got one heck of a future ahead of him as a singer and songwriter.

Luke Combs “Five Leaf Clover”

Luke Combs just keeps those fire singles coming!

He dropped his latest “Five Leaf Clover” this morning- because, Saint Patricks Day- and damn, it’s good.

Really good.

Melodic, relatable and true Country.  The game cam line reminds me of my husband- I’ve heard that line many of times!  And I can relate as I have been extremely lucky thus far.  I definitely have a five-leaf clover, and I am so, so appreciative of all the good things I have.  Not trying to brag or anything, but this song just hits home and reminds me of the good things. Family, a career I love, and some amazing friends (and some great fur babies!)

I know I post a lot about Luke, but hot damn, he keeps putting out songs worthy of mentioning.  And I’m sure there will be plenty more off of his upcoming album “Getin’ Old” which comes out in a week- March 24th!

Calling it another chart topper. Watch out Morgan Wallen!



Luke Combs “Joe”

Luke Combs is on FIRE!

Yes, I know I share a lot of his music, but there’s good reason for that.

He’s got a new album coming out on March 24th called “Gettin’ Old” and he keeps releasing fan favorites that will be on the album. And he does NOT disappoint.  His new single “Joe” deals with addiction and overcoming substance abuse, and the daily struggle that so many people can relate to.

True Country Music right here.

It’s such a well-written song on a topic that so many deal with on a daily basis.  Luke has admitted that Country music is full of drinking and partying songs, but there are not many songs out there for those who are on the other end of the spectrum.  I think it’s great that Luke is shining a light on such a difficult topic, and in a genre full of “Let’s get drunk in my truck” songs, it’s good to hear another side of the story.

Luke is quickly becoming one of the most respected artists in Modern Country, and it’s not hard to see why.


I can’t wait for his new album! Again, March 24th is when you can check it out.




Kelly Clarkson Covering Hank Jr’s “Family Tradition”

Kelly Clarkson is easily one of the best vocalists of our time, something she continues to prove on the daily with her “Kellyoke” segments on her show “The Kelly Clarkson Show”.

One of her latest cover song triumphs? Her version of Hank Williams Jr’s classic tune “Family Tradition”:

Dudeeee, she gave that song a whole new life!


I remember it being a karaoke staple when I was in my bar-hopping phase, but I have never heard it like this.

Can she just full-on crossover to Country now? I wouldn’t be mad at it.


Danielle Bradbery Interview

Ten years ago, Danielle Bradbery won “The Voice” and I remember watching the finale (my husband and I totally voted for her) and we had just fallen in love with the sweet 16-year-old aspiring Country singer.  Fast-forward a decade, and Danielle is back with a feisty new sound and look and I am totally here for it.

She was sweet enough to take a few minutes out of here day to chat with me this week about what she’s got happening in 2023.

And have you heard her new single “A Special Place”?

So much yes here.

I love it! Great sound and lyrics, and I think we all have a few people we’d like to send to that hotel, am I right?


Really looking forward to see what 2023 brings for Danielle. Such a talent, and just a sweet, down-to-Earth woman.


Elle King “Tulsa”

Elle King has gone Country, and I’m thinking it’s going to work out just fine…


If you recall, she burst onto the scene in the Mid-2010’s with “Exes and Ohs” (GREAT SONG) and has since had several chart-topping Country collabs with Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley. So, the obvious next move is to go full on Country, right?

Here’s her new single “Tulsa” and it’s not what you think it would be.

Yep, you can definitely tell she’s been hanging with Miranda.

And seriously, what woman hasn’t been in a Tulsa situation?

I can’t wait for Elle’s album “Come Get Your Wife”- love the title!- and it will be available on January 27th.



Fun Fact: Elle is actor Rob Schneider’s daughter!

Kelsea Ballerini “If You Go Down”

The longer Kelsea Ballerini is on the Country scene, the more I like her!

Her latest single had me from the start. “If You Go Down” totally reminds me of me and my best friend since the 6th Grade Erica Carroll. This song is so us, and I’m sure any woman (hell, or guy) who has a lifelong friendship where you know waaaay too much about the other can totally relate.

Isn’t that fun?


I love it.  Kelsea’s latest album “Subject to Change” is out now, and it’s really, really good.


I want to drink wine with her. We’d so be friends.

Megan Moroney “Tennessee Orange”

Ok, so a few weeks back I was posting about Morgan Wallen’s new song “Tennessee Fan” (I’m from the great state of Tennessee. I had to share it- moral obligation)

Well, rumor has it that it’s inspired by this new song by Megan Moroney called “Tennessee Orange”.  According to the rumor mill, they had a thing going for a while, but niether Morgan or Megan would confiem nor deny it.  Either way, it’s a fantastic song!


Pretty dang solid. And it’s starting to chart in the Country world, so I’m thinking you can expect to hear a lot more of Megan in the future.  Plus, her name is Megan and spelled correctly like mine, so #respect.


Neon Union Live Performance!


So, today at the station, a hot new Country duo called Neon Union stopped by to play us a few songs at the Silversound Guitar Studio and they were incredible!

Plus, some of the nicest guys you could ever hope to meet.

Here’s a few of their songs:


“Bout Damn Time”

“This Side of the Dirt”

“Made in Mexico”


Aren’t they freaking good?  They’re just getting started, too.


Thank you Jab Entertainment for bringing them to us today.   This was a total treat.


And yes, my baby Brandon was trying to perform harmonies in the background.  Some moms take their babies to daycare. I take mine to artist showcases.  Brandon’s not mad at it.
