New artist Josh Melton’s new song, “One Day” is available now on all streaming platforms.

Josh Melton One Day

Back in August, we highlighted new artist Josh Melton in our Swag Spotlight series. With talent, charisma, and charm, the singer continues to shake up the country music scene in all the best ways. Most recently, Melton has released a brand new song called “One Day.”

The new track was written by the singer with Old Dominion’s Brad Tursi and hit songwriter Justin Ebach. With a start-studded group of songwriters like that, it is obvious that the new single has to be a good one. Melton does not disappoint, as “One Day” is the perfect addition to his song catalog. With a focus on positivity and good times, the track is as nostalgic as a song can get – the perfect song to kick off 2021.

“The bad news kinda hard to hear / As long as there’s still fish to fry and back porches still got Christmas lights / Imma keep on living my life / On my own time / Cause I ain’t waiting on one day / One day ain’t waiting on me”

Melton is poised at expressing himself through lyrics while giving fans a refreshing perspective and sonically-pleasing jam. Like his song “Staycation,” “One Day” is sure to land on playlists across the streaming platforms and in the hearts of country music lovers everywhere. We look forward to seeing what is coming down the pipeline next for the budding artist.

Caitlyn Smith and Old Dominion Duet on “I Can’t” from Deluxe Album

Caitlyn Smith and Old Dominion teamed up for a duet on a reimagined version of “I Can’t” from Smith’s Supernova deluxe album.

Back in March, Caitlyn Smith released her sophomore album Supernova at the forefront of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Despite all obstacles of the unprecedented times and the lack of balance felt throughout the world, Smith’s album soared high and well. With praise from practically every media platform and the collection itself reaching #1 on the Apple Music Singer/Songwriter Album Chart, the songstress is back on the airwaves with a deluxe edition to Supernova.

The former solo vocal production of “I Can’t” is now joined and rediscovered through a partnership with Old Dominion, dubbing the duet the group’s first-ever collaboration track.

Smith’s rendition of “I Can’t” fulfills the powerhouse artistry and high-esteemed singer-songwriter category. The lyrics are emotional and unrevealing, while the balance of strength and helplessness keeps the listener engaged through the efforts of interpretation. Though the story behind the lyrics is unclear, the portrayed aftermath holds a significant delicacy that is just as metaphysical to describe. Simply put, “I Can’t” intoxicates the listener well enough to put on a loop.

Caitlyn Smith and Old Dominion I Can't

With Old Dominion reintroducing the track as a collaboration, the auditory motion picture that Smith initially executed is given a new layer of weight and substance. Matthew Ramsey, who acts as the male lead vocalist, offers an entirely additional perspective and personality by assuming the role of the previously considered intangible figure who is mentioned through lyric.

“All the time and the whiskey I’ve wasted / That I ain’t ever getting back / And I’ve tried to find the courage just to face it / But I can’t, I can’t / And I’m tired of you feeling like a stranger / Over and over again / Oh, when everything around me keeps changing / But I can’t, I can’t, I can’t”

This rendition of Smith’s “I Can’t” with Old Dominion is not merely a collaboration. It’s an incredibly skilled and transformative duet that successfully moves like a ballad or an intense yet vulnerable contemporary dance of words. A prominent hardcore and interactive duet that compliments the originally noteworthy, sentimental, and mentally exclusive solo vocal production.

Supernova, the deluxe album, also includes a cover of “Fix You” which Smith released exclusively as an Amazon Original back in May.

To keep up with Caitlyn Smith, follow her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.

“I Can’t” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released tunes on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

If You Like The 1975, Then You’ll Love…

Sometimes country music seems to be a hit or miss when it comes to getting friends or family to listen. Sometimes there’s a pre-assumed notion that they won’t like what you’re going to put on. “It’s too twangy” – you can already hear the words circling in your mind. But like every genre, there are influences drawn from all other genres. In this case, rock influences from all over are incorporated in the following bands’ styles. In this week’s edition of “If You Like…, Then You’ll Love…,” The 1975.

 

The 1975 is an English rock band formed in 2002 changing the mold of current rock. They just released a new record entitled Notes On A Conditional Form two weeks ago. If you love rock music, here are the top three country bands that The 1975 fans will love!

 

The Cadillac Three:

The Cadillac Three, composed of Jaren Johnston, Kelby Ray, and Neil Mason, lay between the lines of a country music band and an American southern rock band. The blend of these influences produces an assemblage of blended country rock vibes. Their latest album Country Fuzz is infused with indie rock, electric guitar vibes, and DIY rock aesthetics.

To keep up with The Cadillac Three follow them on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

 

Old Dominion:

Old Dominion, covers a lot of horizons and it’s hard not to like them with their feel-good, summer-lovin’ bops. They’ve graced country radio with upbeat hits such as “Make It Sweet,” “Hotel Key,” “One Man Band,” as well as slow, emotional “Some People Do.” The 1975 rotates between upbeat songs and emotional ballads as well such as one of their singles “Somebody Else.”

To keep up with Old Dominion follow them on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

 

LANCO:

LANCO, the calmer of the two bands above, charmed country radio with singles “Greatest Love Story” and “Born To Love You.” Excellent storytellers are their strong suit as well as The Cadillac Three and Old Dominion listed above.

To keep up with LANCO follow them on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

All three of these country bands all possess qualities that fans of The 1975 are sure to love.
