Sam Hunt drops new song “Start Nowhere” today. Hunt and co-writers Zach Crowell, Shane McAnally, and Josh Osborne lean into the comfort and ease of a life before distractions.  

 “When you grow up in a small town, you love where you’re from, you are where you’re from, and you answer the call of adventure when you turn 18 and take off out into the big wide world,” shares Hunt on his socials. “If you stay gone too long without coming home, you can get a little disconnected. Sometimes the only way to get your feet back on the ground is to go back home where you grew up.”

4Robby Johnson


The song found me. It wrote itself. These are not silly notions, at least not for Nashville-based singer/songwriter Robby Johnson.

“I woke up one morning with this melody in my head, and it felt like a Christmas song. And then, during the day, the lyrics just started coming by themselves. Unlike other songs I wrote, everything was falling into place effortlessly. I don’t feel like I wrote it at all; it really just came to me,” says Johnson

Phil Wickham released Behold with Anne Wilson.

I wrote ‘BEHOLD’ last Christmas season, and I knew that I wanted someone to join me in singing it. When I heard  “My Jesus,” I knew I had to have Anne sing with me. Thanks to the very talented Anne Wilson for joining me on it. It is going to be so special to do these Christmas shows with her. They are going to be powerful!”

9Ryan  Griffin with Jay DeMarcus

Ryan Griffin is gearing up for the holiday season with the release of “Little Saint Nick,” featuring Jay DeMarcus.

Griffin shared his excitement for the song’s release, explaining, “The holidays are my favorite time of year so I wanted to release a Christmas cover. Being from Florida, I’m used to a warmer Christmas than most people, so covering a song by The Beach Boys just seemed like the perfect move. I’m also so pumped to have Jay on the song – he’s one of my biggest musical influences and has welcomed me into Red Street Records family. Can’t wait for everyone to hear the track!”
