Joe Nichols, ‘Yeah’ [Listen]

Joe Nichols’ new single ‘Yeah’ keeps the feel-good vibe of ‘Sunny and 75’ alive. On paper, the story comes across as a track that was all too popular in 2013, but the singer’s warm voice wraps the listener up like a good hug on chilly country night. His song is different because he’s not trying so hard.

Rascal Flatts, ‘Rewind’ [Listen]

There’s a timeless quality to Rascal Flatts’ love songs, like their latest ‘Rewind.’ It’s a song that could appear on any of the group’s eight previous studio albums. Gary, Jay and Joe Don have a signature sound, and they’ve remained loyal to it for almost 15 years.

Chuck Wicks, ‘Us Again’ [Listen]

'Us Again,' Chuck Wicks' debut single on Blaster Records, is a patient, orchestral ballad about yearning to get back together with the one you loved and lost. Wicks has always been a talented interpreter of songs. His pain comes through early on this track from an upcoming studio album.

The Swon Brothers, ‘Later On’ [Listen]

The Swon Brothers are the first male contestants from 'The Voice' to try their hand at country radio with the release of their debut single, ‘Later On.’ To date, Danielle Bradbery and Cassadee Pope have been the show’s biggest successes, both releasing fairly mainstream pop-country songs. These Oklahoma boys show their rock roots early and often in this cut.

Eric Church, ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’ [Listen]

Eric Church’s new song ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’ seems to fill in the answer to a question proposed last month through a short series of cryptic videos. The first video promised: “One will rise , one will fall," and then another indicated the first wasn't meant as an attack on Taylor Swift. It's not clear why footage of Swift was used at all, although this new song does explore themes the 24-year-old is famous for singing about.

Chris Young, ‘Who I Am With You’ [Listen]

Chris Young's second single from the 'A.M.' album is similar to 'Aw Naw' in that it takes something he's done well across his first three studio albums and turns up the volume. 'Who I Am With You' is a big, soaring love ballad. It's a stark contrast to more intimate lovers from previous records.

Kellie Pickler, ‘(Everybody’s Waitin’ for) The Man With the Bag’ [Listen]

Kellie Pickler's 'Santa Baby' is one of the best country Christmas songs of all time, and she tries that style once again in '(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man With the Bag,' her latest holiday recording. The versatile singer seems as comfortable weaving around her jazzy horn ensemble as she does the mandolins and acoustics that make up her best country cuts.

Kip Moore, ‘Young Love’ [Listen]

Wait, only two verses? Kip Moore's new single 'Young Love' is a more traditional arrangement than his previous hits, but that doesn't mean it's generic. With this warm ballad, the 'Hey Pretty Girl' hitmaker proves his sharp storytelling is the rule, not the exception.

Billy Currington, ‘We Are Tonight’ [Listen]

Billy Currington's new single 'We Are Tonight' tells a country roads, truck bed love story. That's not an original narrative in 2013, but his emphatic, soulful style allows the title track from his new album to become a refreshing, anthemic party song that will still sound good sober.

2013 CMA Awards Worst Dressed Pictures

Most of the artists who make the 2013 CMA Awards Worst Dressed list would have benefitted from a quick look in the mirror before stepping out. "Disheveled" is how one could describe a few of these five stars. Suits that don't fit and gowns fit for a first trip to your future mother-in-law's house get noticed for all the wrong reasons. Please, don't try this at home.
