As a country music addict, you probably want — no, need — to know what the hottest country music is right now. You need to know what songs every country circle is talking about.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Below are some of the top country songs from the recent few weeks.
Lauren Alaina — “Road Less Traveled”
Her announcement of this song on Facebook:
“I’m so excited for y’all to see my music video for #RoadLessTraveled. It’s a super emotional video for me. I wanted to share my personal journey and struggles with [self-worth] and confidence. I want you to see and know why I wrote this song. I hope after watching it you feel encouraged, beautiful, strong, and courageous. Please know that you are unique and special just the way you are. Your flaws and insecurities do not define you. You can be whoever you want to be. Don’t let anyone else try to stop you. I hope you love the video.
“I hope you love the video.”
Ryan Follese — “Put A Label On It”
Follese’s Facebook post on the day of the song’s release:
“Sitting at 10 at 9am… totally blown away by this.”
Chase Bryant — “Room To Breathe”
The day before this video aired on TV, Bryant posted on Facebook simply, “Tomorrow. “Room To Breathe” on CMT.”
High Valley — “Every Week’s Got A Friday”
When their video came out, High Valley exclaimed on Facebook, “Here it is!!!!”
That also translates to real-life energy, according to The Reviews Are In:
“On stage, the Rempel brothers gave us all the energy we could have hoped for, some laughs, some faith, some chances to get loud – and all the songs we love from the band… except maybe On The Combine, we missed that one. Throughout the show they moved and joked and told stories about family and songs, giving us the things that we love about country shows.”
Kip Moore — “My Kind”
“Moore strikes the defiant tone that’s been a part of his artistry since “Reckless (Still Growin’ Up)” from his debut album, depicting people who live by the work-hard-party-harder axiom and refuse to back down from confrontation,” says Rolling Stone.
Brett Eldredge — “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”
“I’ve been waiting my whole life to make this record,” he told WWD. “I’m a Christmas freak and I feel like a kid a lot of the time. I really feel the magic of Christmas. I can be in the worst state of mind, but it makes me think of a warm family environment where everything is right in the world.”
A Thousand Horses — “Travelin’ Man”
The band explains on Facebook what this song is about: “‘Travelin’ Man’ is about being on the road and being a bad ass, always on the move and ready to rock! Check out our new video!”
