The wait is ALMOST up for those as anxious as us to hear new music from Miranda Lambert. The country spitfire’s new single “Automatic” will hit radio on February 5th.The track is the first single from her forthcoming album, to be released later this year. It was co-written by Miranda, Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby. It’s described as an autobiographical song that reflects back on the days of pay phones, learning to drive stick shift, driving to Dallas to buy an Easter dress, recording the country countdown on her cassette recorder and more.

“‘Automatic’ is a song about the good life,” said Miranda. “It’s about slowing down, taking a breath and remembering what it’s like to live life a little more simply. It’s not about going back, but reminiscing about what it was like to hang laundry on the line and wait for it to dry and my dad teaching me how to drive my ’55 Chevy that I still have but don’t drive nearly enough,” she said. “The song brings back good memories and it reminds me to take a deep breath and to remember that getting there is half the fun.”

“Automatic” is the debut single from Miranda’s fifth album, which will be released later this year. “It’s always exciting and little bit nerve-wracking to release a new album,” said Miranda. “We’ve been writing and recording since last summer and I’m ready for the fans to hear my new music.”

On Tuesday January 28th, American Idol finalist Paul Jolley had a lot to celebrate. For one, it was his birthday, but more importantly he released his first single, “Healed,” to iTunes. The inspirational tune has all the makings of a country hit, including powerful lyrics, an impressive range and a pair of seasoned songwriters on board.

The track was co-written by Jolley along with Mark Irwin (“Highway Don’t Care,” and “Redneck Crazy,” etc.), and Adam Wood. “It’s one of those songs that hit you when you’ve found someone that makes you feel really special and important. It’s a feeling you’ve never felt before – you feel complete. Not many people feel complete, but when you get that completeness, you instantly feel healed, and it’s one of the best feelings in the world,” said Jolley. “I’m so excited ‘Healed’ is finally out there. I believe in the song and the message it sends. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do,” he added.

Country bad-boy, Eric Church, is adding more gasoline to the flames of fans’ anticipation for the upcoming release of his new album The Outsiders, with the release of the second single “Give Me Back My Hometown“.

This wistful song, written by Church and Luke Laird, is sure to be a hit with listeners who grooved on out to “Like Jesus Does” and “Homeboy“. Simultaneously rock and country, and all signature Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown” follows quick on the heels of the highly touted first single “The Outsiders“.

“Church was already at the vanguard of contemporary country’s rock movement… Like a modern-day Lynyrd Skynyrd, Church manages to be simultaneously more rock’n’roll and good-old-boy than anyone else out there – no easy task,” Billboard Magazine wrote about this ACM and CMA award winner. And Rolling Stone named “The Outsiders” one of the “100 Best Songs of 2013″ citing “Leave it to the classic rock-loving Nashville badass to cook up the heaviest ‘country’ song in years – a radio hit that plays like some demon spawn of Def Leppard, Black Sabbath, and “Born to Be Wild.”"

The Outsiders will be Church’s fourth studio album and fourth collaboration with producer Jay Joyce (Emmylou Harris, Little Big Town) and follows in the footsteps of Platinum-certified Chief, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts.

Big boots to fill, but “Give Me Back My Hometown” goes a long way to filling them.

To purchase “Give Me Back My Hometown” you can go to iTunes.

Dierks Bentley Releases “I Hold On” As Lead Single from “Riser”!

dierks bentley

In advance of Dierks Bentley‘s forthcoming album, Riser, the award-winning singer/songwriter released his new single “I Hold On” to country radio. The track was written by Bentley and Brett James, pinning spiritual questions to material symbols with a personal touch.

“If you asked me to sum myself up in three minutes, I’d play ‘I Hold On’ for you.  At first listen, you might think it’s about my truck or my guitar, but it’s really about why I do some of the things I do and the kind of guy I am,” explains Bentley. “The chorus is really universal…it’s about faith, love and freedom…I don’t think there’s a country fan out there who doesn’t live with those as big priorities.  I hope through this song I’m able to let the fans into my heart and my mind a little more, and that they can also relate it back to themselves and their own lives.”

USA Today is offering fans a behind the scenes look at the making of “I Hold On.” To watch, click here.

Bentley is currently on tour with Miranda Lambert, through October. For ongoing updates on new music and tour dates, visit www.dierks.com.

tim-mcgraw-southern-girl
Riding high on the #1 success of “Highway Don’t Care,” Tim McGraw just released his new single “Southern Girl” to radio as the fourth single from his Big Machine Records debut, Two Lanes of Freedom. The single was chosen in large due to incredible fan reaction it receives as part of Tim’s Two Lanes of Freedom 2013 Tour.

“At the beginning of the tour, we threw a lot of new songs into the set list, and that’s always a risky thing when an album is so brand new,” said McGraw.  ”It didn’t take a whole weekend out there before the girls were shouting at us to play ‘Southern Girl.’  The song has a really cool groove to it that just gets everyone moving and sets the right tone for a perfect summer night.”

The Two Lanes of Freedom 2013 Tour continues on this weekend with stops in Hartford, CT (6/28); Boston, MA (6/29) and Holmdel, NJ (6/30).

Kelly Clarkson Reveals New Country Single Title & Cover Art

Riding on the success and acclaim of “Don’t Rush,” country music’s favorite adopted pop star, Kelly Clarkson, took to Twitter today to reveal the title and cover art for her new single, “Tie It Up.” Although not much is known about the track (yet), Clarkson will be premiering it at LP Field tonight during her set at CMA Fest.

The cover features Clarkson in a wedding dress and veil, her hand tied to someone else’s. Just a hunch, but we’re thinking this tune has a little something to do with her rumored October wedding to fiance Brandon Blackstock. Stay tuned for more!
