1. George Strait – “Honky Tonk Time Machine”
King of Country Music George Strait announces today his brand-new album Honky Tonk Time Machine out Friday, March 29 on MCA Nashville. Comprised of 12 original titles plus Strait’s version of the Johnny Paycheck classic “Old Violin,” Honky Tonk Time Machine marks an incredible 30th career studio album for Strait. Strait, who produced the album alongside Chuck Ainlay, wrote eight of the 13 tracks including “Sing One with Willie” featuring Willie Nelson that the pair happily debuted at a recent Nashville show marking the first time the two country icons have ever shared the stage.
2. LOCASH – “Brothers”
3. Tony Lucca – “Ain’t No Storm”
Nashville-based singer-songwriter Tony Lucca is flexing his Americana muscles on his forthcoming new album, Ain’t No Storm, which he will be releases on March 29, 2019. Ain’t No Storm reads like a who’s who of East Nashville notables: Ken Coomer produced the record at his studio, Cartoon Moon, great Nashville players like Michael Webb, Ted Pecchio, and Joe Garcia lent their talents — and even Patrick Sweany stopped in for a cameo on “Room With A View.” Replete with songs borne of his admiration for Nashville’s rich history – the town’s creative community ultimately fueled Lucca’s return to the studio and inspired the new album – Ain’t No Storm finds Lucca embracing with reverence the process and craft of songwriting and taking his time (more than two years) to get it right
4. Kelly Clarkson – “Broken and Beautiful”
Kelly Clarkson just released “Broken and Beautiful” which will be part of the soundtrack for the upcoming animated film UglyDolls. The song was co-written by Pink and co-produced by Marshmello. Clarkson will perform at Bridgestone Arena on Friday night with Kelsea Ballerini on the Meaning of Life Tour.
