Post Malone “Never Love You Again”

Just in case you missed it, Post Malone performed at the 2024 ACM Awards last week, and debuted his new Country song “Never Love You Again” and it’s got me all kinds of excited for his upcoming Country album.

If you’ve been doubting Posty as a Country artist, just check this out:

Dannngggg son…

Poat Malone has the chops for sure, and he’s one of the Pop artists that I am TOTALLY ok with coming over to the Country side.

His yet unnamed Country album will be out later on this year.

Seriously cannot wait!

 

Skid Row and Lzzy Hale ROCK the Stage!

Yessss… I’ve been waiting for this!

Recently it was announced that Skid Row’s lead singer Erik Gronwall was leaving the band. They had tour dates to do, so they need a fill in, so… enter the Rock Goddess Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.

Sounds to good to be true, right?

Nope. She is legit filling in until they get a new lead singer.

Last night was her first show with the band at Walker’s Bluff Casino Resort in Carterville, Illinois, and they brought the huse down.

I’m a huge Lzzy fan, as she is just incredibly talented, and has really paved the way for more badass women in Rock.  I was really excited to see her covering all the Skid Row live, and of course, she didn’t disappoint.

I mean, it’s Lzzy Hale.

Check out her cover of “18 & Life”:


Dammmnnnn…

Oh, and of course, you can’t have a Skid Row concert without the power ballad “I Remember You”:


Yup. Killed it.

That is an incredibly hard song to sing, and that last vocal run is nearly impossible to nail. Sebastian Bach- the OG lead singer of Skid Row- may be a bit of a hot mess, but dude had the pipes.

If there’s anyone who can handle it, it’s definitely Lzzy.

Lzzy will be filling in for a few more dates, and you can find out more at https://loudwire.com/skid-row-setlist-video-lzzy-hale/

Can she just be the permanent replacement?

Please?

Check out the rest of the Top 30 at https://ultimateclassicrock.com/greatest-rock-duets/
I think that Sonny and Cher and Simon & Garfunkle shouldn’t get to count as they’re already established duos. If that’s the case, then why isn’t Starship’s “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” on the list? Because this song is still a freaking jam:


What is your favorite Rock duet? Is there anything that should be on the list?

HARDY “Psycho”

In case you’ve been under a rock or something, HARDY is ne of the biggest names in Country right now, and moonlights as a Rock singer as well. He had his first #1 on Mainstream Rock last year with “Jack”, and it was one of my favrite songs of 2023:


HARDY is not only continuing to dominate the Country world, but is getting full on into Rock as well. He announced his first full-length Rock album “Quit!” which will be released on July 12th.

To get you ready for it, he just released his new song “Psycho” today, and I’m digging both the song and the video:

This song reminds me of an ex or two.

I mean, that’s kind of scary, but at least it’s relateable?

I know there’s some complaints about genre-crossing artists, but I’m really enjoying the dual musical stylings of artists like HARDY, Jelly Roll and Chris Stapleton.

Who says you have to stay in your lane?

I never really subscribed to that notion.

HARDY has a full rest f 2024 ahead, and you can get info, dates, and more at https://hardyofficial.com/

George Strait “MIA Down in MIA”

Well, this was a happy surprise last night.

THE KING George Strait just released his new song “MIA Down in MIA” last night during the ACM Awards, and it’s pure George Strait Country Perfection:


Yes. All the yes. You can NEVER go wrong with King George. I am so glad to have new music from him! Makes my little Country loving heart happy.

It’s a perfect Summer Country song. I can definitely see some beer and margarita drinking being done to this.

The single is off of his upcoming album “Cowboys and Dreamers” due out later this year.

Also, be on the lookout for track listing at CowboysDreamers.com

And, of course, the KING is on the road this year with Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town.

Luke Combs “Ain’t No Love in Oklahoma”

Dammnnnn, Luke Combs!

He jus sang the brakes off of this song.

It’s called “Ain’t No Love in Oklahoma” and Luke wrote it for the upcoming  “Twisters” movie soundtrack, and it his hard:


I’ve been so used to Luke’s love songs, beer songs and now dad songs (and the endless airplay loop of his version of “Fast Car”) that it was kind of a pleasant surprise to hear some real rocker vibes on this track.

Dude has some serious pipes, and I’m so happy that this is his new radio single. I can jam to this all damn day.

“Twisters” – the sequel to the 1996 Tornado Classic will be out July 19th.

 

Chayce Beckham Interview!

 

I was lucky enough to get to chat with “Amercian Idol” Season 19 Winner and Country Star Chayce Beckham, and seriously, SUCH a nice guy, and he’s got quite a future ahead in the industry, especially coming off of his first #1 hit “23”:

I absolutely LOVE that song, which, by the way, he was the solo writer on it.

We talk about that and more in the interview below:

Aaaah! Week = Made.

Also, in case you haven’t heard it yet, here’s Chayce’s latest single “Everything I Need”:

Zach Top Interview

Earlier this year, Zach Top exploded onto the Country scene seemingly out of nowhere with his song “Sounds Like the Radio” which is a tribute to the “Glory Days” of Country Music in the Mid-90’s.

As soon as I heard the song, I knew it would take off, and look at that, every now and again I’m right!

“Sounds Like the Radio” is now in the Top 40 on the Hot Country charts, and if you haven’t heard the song yet, let me enlighten you:


90’s Country Perfection, right???

And Zach Top himself was kind enough to join me on the air this week, and he is SUCH a sweetheart.

Seriously, how can you not love him?

I am so excited about what the future has in store for him, and to see him on the road this Summer with Dierks Bentley.

Post Malone Feat. Morgan Wallen “I Had Some Help”

Who else has been waiting on this?

Post Malone is making the move to Country Music- I mean, who isn’t these days?

But I’m cool with it. I think he’s a great artist, and honestly, you can’t help but like the guy.

The first song off his upcoming project is the new single with Country Megastar Morgan Wallen.

It’s called “I Had Some Help” and it’s catchy as all get out.

You knew it would be, with those two behind it:

I like it. I really do. I wish there wasn’t as much autotune on it, as neither of those guys need it, but it’s 2024, and that’s how producers roll these days.

I smell an easy #1 hit.

What do you think about the new Posty Collab?

Stay tuned for more, as his Country project is slated for later this year.

 

Reba McEntire “I Can’t”

Well, this was a pleasant surprise…

Reba McEntire released an anthemic new song called “I Can’t” and it proves that Reba still has IT.


I honestly feel like that is one of the best songs Reba has had in a while. Anyone who has been in a relationship of any kind where they were being mistreated can relate. Hell, I’ve been there, and this song had me saying “Helllll Yessss, Reba!!!!”

Also, she’s 69, and still sounds incredible.

Need more proof?

She performed the song last night on “The Voice”, and just owned the damn thing.

Freaking QUEEN, that is all.

Also, she’s got a Comedy ordered by NBC called “Happy’s Place”.

So, no signs of stopping for this amazing woman.
