Lacy Cavalier Bares Raw Emotion on “This Ain’t Love”

Lacy Cavalier This Ain't Love

One of our favorite independent rising artists, Lacy Cavalier is the complete full package. Between her powerhouse vocals, sassy personality, and heartfelt songwriting, she can truly do no wrong. Proving that she is all about her fans, the songstress finally released a recorded version of her heartbreaking ballad “This Ain’t Love” with a music video featuring her fans lip-synching the touching lyrics.

The song’s central theme is about realizing that you deserve more and that sometimes your relationship is not what you thought it was. Cavalier has a way of creating deeply personal music that resonates with listeners’ own experiences, showcasing exactly why she has such a supportive fan base behind her. She has a knack for putting words to even the deepest feelings and for truly creating musical poetry.

“I turned all of my picture frames face down so I don’t see you around the house / But the minute I walk out the door / The ghost of what we were before surrounds this damn town”

In preparation for her music video, Cavalier asked fans to enter a contest via her Instagram and a few lucky winners were randomly selected. Each participant got an advance listen of the song so that they were able to send the singer-songwriter back a video of them singing the track. In just a few short hours that the video has been live, fans have already flocked to their social media to support the sensational visuals and give credit to Cavelier’s authenticity and talent.

Adam Doleac Releases Sultry Track “Neon Fools”

Neon Fools

One of our 2018 Artists to Watch and one of Arista Nashville’s newest signees, Adam Doleac is getting ready to send his single “Famous” to country radio in January but to hold fans over with some new music, he released “Neon Fools”, available everywhere today. Doleac wrote the track with Andy Skib and Thomas Finchum and the mid-tempo, sultry track is all about making bad decisions seem like they are the right ones.

“Neon Fools” commences with distinctive, beauteous fretwork imbricating a percussive medium. He inaugurates: “If I was smart I would walk out the back door. / I wouldn’t say, “I’ll buy you a drink” that you can’t afford”

“I think it’s safe to say that many of us have allowed the neon setting of a crowed club to fool us into getting involved in situations,” Doleac says in a press release. “And when folks hear this track, wherever it takes them, I hope they love it.”

Doleac welcomes the incandescence of the room to elude them to fall in love. When the lights are low and it’s just the two, and you know it isn’t going to be able to last once walking back out the front door, why not make the time last underneath the neon lights.

“Let’s let the neon fool us into thinking / Me and you ain’t gonna burn out / Give in to this thing and feel it / Underneath these lights right now / We know better than to leave here together / But, baby, what do we got to lose? / Let’s be neon fools and let that neon fool me and you tonight”

Doleac will be joining Ryan Hurd on select dates on the Platonic Tour as well as select dates with Mitchell Tenpenny. For full list of tour dates head to www.adamdoleac.com

To keep up with Adam Doleac follow him on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

“Neon Fools” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our “New Country Music” playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

Randy Houser Turns Webster Hall Into a Nashville Honky Tonk

Randy Houser

Singer-songwriter, Randy Houser visited Webster Hall in New York City Wednesday night wrapping up the fall leg of his Magnolia Tour, promoting his new album of the same name that came out in January. Joining him was special guest, Paul Cauthen.

Cauthen’s music style is a mix between Eric Church and Johnny Cash, dipping heavily into outlaw-country. He and his band all wore cowboy hats and dark shades, not cracking a smile the entire 45-minute set, fitting the outlaw persona. He performed many songs of his newest album 41, which came out in September including “Holy Ghost Fire”, “Prayed for Rain” and “Angel”. After grabbing a Coors Light and polishing it off in three seconds, the Texas-native covered Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues”, riling up the already boisterous crowd. The ceiling disco ball lit up the venue for his final song of the night, “Cocaine Country Dancing” which got everyone swaying along.

Not many artists open with ballads but Houser is unique and began his 90-minute set with the lead single off the new album, “What Whiskey Does”. Here, he displayed his powerful vocals, hitting every high and extended note. He quickly changed the mood of the show, covering Waylon Jennings’ “Good Hearted Woman” and his country music hero, Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again”. Houser told the audience later in the show that Nelson had just recorded one of his songs and decided that he would name his upcoming album after it. He said he wanted Webster Hall to turn into a Nashville honky-tonk for the night. He kept the energy going with his original songs “Boots On” and “My Kinda Country”.

Houser included a lot of songs from Magnolia into the setlist Wednesday night, which is a testament to his confidence in his new music. Most established artists stick to the hits because they know those are the songs that will receive the most positive reactions and keep the fans engaged. The audience showed their fandom as everyone in the crowd sang along to two deep cuts off the new album, “High Time” and his most vulnerable track to date, “No Good Place to Cry”

“I wrote this one a while ago, but I didn’t put it on any albums until this one because I wasn’t ready to sing it just yet. But after I turned 40 I didn’t give a s**t anymore,” the Mississippi-native explained, making light of the gloomy song. “But this was written at a terrible time in my life and I feel comfortable sharing it now.”

Randy Houser Miranda LambertThe New York City fans were in for a surprise with the next one as Grammy-winning, singer-songwriter, Miranda Lambert came out to sing Loretta Lynn’s part in Conway Twitty’s “After the Fire is Gone”. Lambert married NYC police officer, Brendan McLoughlin last year and since then the two split their residency between Nashville and The Big Apple.

The next two songs any country fan would recognize; two of Houser’s biggest hits “We Went” and “How Country Feels”. New York Country 94.7 radio host, Jesse Addy told the crowd before the show that “How Country Feels” was the first song they played when the station dedicated itself to country music. Both songs went number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

After some pleading, Houser got Lambert to come back on stage to sing background on another new song “No Stone Unturned”, which he admitted was one of his favorite songs off Magnolia. Cauthen came out on stage as well to sing with Houser.

“I wrote this song about self-discovery…The biggest thing I learned about learning anything about yourself is that you don’t know s**t about yourself and you don’t learn anything about yourself if you’re looking.”

After performing “Mama Don’t Know” from the new album, Houser dedicated his ballad “Like a Cowboy” to the military and first responders, as it is a song about perseverance and trying to hold on to loved ones. “Nobody knows more about trying to hang on to a relationship when somebody is gone all the time. In that situation, you don’t know if they’re gonna come back and they don’t know either.” After this performance, it became clear that Houser has one of the best, most beautiful traditional country voices in the business.

For the encore, Houser and his band performed an extended jam-band version of the honky-tonk track “Whole Lotta Quit” off Magnolia. He ended the night with another number one song in “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight”.

Houser will go into 2020 performing multiple shows in Colorado, California and more! Head to his website for tickets.

To keep up with Houser, follow him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Parmalee and Blanco Brown Duet on “Just The Way”

Blanco Brown Parmalee

Good friends Parmelee and Blanco Brown just released their song “Just The Way”, which they first performed on Sunday Night Football this week. It’s a song that is perfect for your weekend playlist, especially if you are having a bad day and need a confidence boost. 

Written by Matt Thomas, Kevin Bard, and Nolan Sipe, “Just the Way” is an upbeat song that encourages accepting and loving people for just the way they are, including their imperfections. Living in a world of social media, many people feel the pressure of having to live a perfect life. Posting the ideal picture, showing off their perfect relationship. However, we all know that no matter how hard you may try, no one is perfect. This song is a reminder that it is okay to have flaws and 

“I love you just the way God made you\ Girl, he don’t make mistakes\ What you call your imperfections\ I call beautiful babe\ So let my eyes be your mirror\ And you’re bound to see it too\’Cause I was made for loving you\ Just the way God made you”

Parmalee starts out the song with Brown coming in during the second verse. How they all come together during the chorus and bridge really highlights how well their voices mesh.  We could listen to them sing together all day.

“Just the Way”  is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’  playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

NYCS First Impression: Blake Shelton ‘Fully Loaded God’s Country’

Blake Shelton Fully Loaded

Earlier this year, Blake Shelton said that he probably wouldn’t release a new album any time soon. However, it turns out that his label, Warner Music Nashville, had other plans. “I knew the label would come up with some plan to release an album,” joked Shelton in a statement, of his new album, Fully Loaded: God’s Country, out today.

The album is part-EP and part-greatest hits package, combining a handful of Shelton’s recent releases with some of his older hits. The latter portion of the album contains some of the biggest tracks from Shelton’s 2017 release Texoma Shore and 2016’s If I’m Honest, including “She’s Got A Way With Words,” “I’ll Name the Dogs,” and “I Lived It.”

For the newer section of the album, there’s the title track, the booming “God’s Country,” which marks Shelton’s 26th number one hit at country radio. The song has rightfully earned Shelton a fair bit of attention, including a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Solo Performance and a trophy for Single of the Year at this year’s CMA Awards.

The album also features two new duets, one with Shelton’s longtime pal, Trace Adkins, and one with his Voice co-coach and girlfriend, Gwen Stefani. The duet with Adkins follows in the vein of their previous duet, “Hillbilly Bone,” as a raucous ode to a wild night (“Hell Right”).

The duet with Stefani is definitely a highlight here. Despite the glaring differences in their voices, they somehow manage to create magical harmonies. Written by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Tommy Lee James, the song is a simple love story. “I don’t want to live without you/ I don’t want to even breathe/ I don’t want to dream about you/ Want to wake up with you next to me,” They sing. “I don’t wanna go down any other road, Now I don’t wanna love nobody but you/ Looking in your eyes now/ If I had to die now/ I don’t wanna love nobody but you.”

“This was one of those songs where the more I heard it, the more I fell in love with it,” Shelton said of the duet. “I also realized how important it is for me and where I am in my life, and I think that’s why Shane was trying to get it to me. It fits my story. I was about to go in and record when I decided that it needed Gwen on it – because it is our song. I think it’s magic.”

The album ends with Shelton’s raucous cover of the Bobby Bare classic, “Tequila Sheila,” which Shelton previously released last year as part of a Friends and Heroes session. “One of the coolest things I’ve been able to do in my career, because I’ve been fortunate, is be a little selfish along the way and be able to record some songs that I grew up loving,” said Shelton in a statement. “I feel like they have helped shape who I am as an artist and were what inspired me to want to be a country singer. I recorded this song and didn’t really have a plan for it — I just wanted to have my own version. I’m a huge fan, and I always felt like Bobby Bare’s personality was the kind I wanted to have as an artist, too.”

Jimmie Allen Teases Nelly Collab, “Let The Good Times Roll”

One of our favorites and Swag Session alumni, Jimmie Allen performed a killer new song called “Let The Good Times Roll” last week during his opening slot on the CMT on Tour with Michael Ray. The singer-songwriter collaborated and wrote the song with none other than cross-genre recording artist Nelly, watch the sneak peek below.

 

“Let The Good Times Roll” is a perfectly titled tune geared towards making fans dance and sing along. Written with rapper Nelly, the new jam even features a snippet of Nelly’s classic song “Country Grammar” of his debut record. The new song is infectious and will get stuck in your head after just a single listen. Allen is proving that his talent resonates across genre lines and that modern country music has no boundaries for a reason.

When it comes to his co-writer, Nelly is no stranger to collaborations. He has collaborated with everyone from Simple Plan to other hip-hop artists to even country’s own Florida Georgia Line on their smash hit “Cruise.” He also earned himself a major crossover hit with his song “Over and Over Again” featuring Tim McGraw and penned his own country tune, “Sound Good to Me.”

It will be exciting to see what other surprises Allen has for fans coming up soon, but we would be remiss if we didn’t hope for even more collaborations from the entertainer!

To keep up with Jimmie Allen, follow him on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook.
