Album Spotlight: Willie Nelson, ‘To All the Girls’

Willie Nelson's scratchy tenor and familiar guitar are the two constants on his new album of duets called 'To All the Girls.' The project is an enormous collection of female talent -- mostly country, but some not, most well-known, but a few still relatively unheard of. There's a pleasing variety, yet none steer too far from what Nelson has released in the last half-decade.

George Strait, ‘I Got a Car’ [Listen]

George Strait's new single 'I Got a Car' is another easy love story, just as he's done dozens of times before. It's a circle-of-life adventure revolving around a car, presumably the same car in each verse. Expect nothing out of the ordinary from this track from the 'Love Is Everything' album.

Album Spotlight: Cassadee Pope, ‘Frame by Frame’

Cassadee Pope's debut album 'Frame by Frame' is a young woman's record. She refers to "boys" and "girls" and sings of things like her parents' divorce and falling in love in the front seat of an old car. The production straddles both pop and country, using phasers and Gwen Stefani-inspired stomps alongside fiddle and acoustic guitar. It's a mix that will be unique on country radio.

Album Spotlight: Joe Nichols, ‘Crickets’

'Crickets' is a fine way to describe Joe Nichols' new album. The singer aims for a relax-on-the-riverbank vibe with many of the mid-tempo cuts on this project. The album begins and ends with crickets ( literally), and in between it offers a fairly level ride.

Album Spotlight: Randy Travis, ‘Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am’

Randy Travis' 'Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am' is a simple collection of covers from artists that inspired him. Merle Haggard is the most represented singer, with eight cuts influenced by or recorded by him at some point. Three of the first four are Haggard songs, with 'What Have You Got Planned Tonight Diana' being the one to remember.

Billy Ray Cyrus, ‘Hope Is Just Ahead’ [Listen]

'Hope Is Just Ahead,' the new single from Billy Ray Cyrus, takes a big picture look at the world we live in while offering some consolation to those buried in a depressing news cycle. While it's not clear if the singer penned this song about any specific event, fans will no doubt recall horrible tragedies from the past 12 months every time they hear it.

Lady Antebellum, ‘Compass’ [Listen]

Lady Antebellum have found a new direction for their blend of pop-flavored harmonies. 'Compass' walks into the forest of alt-bluegrass that's quickly growing in popularity. Heavy banjo and mandolin drive a foot-stomping beat as the group sings about staying true to one's heart.

Album Spotlight: Tyler Farr, ‘Redneck Crazy’

Tyler Farr's first three singles are a fair representation of his debut album 'Redneck Crazy.' There's a little pain, a little heart and a little cray-cray. The singer relies on his unique voice, but nothing about the project feels self-indulgent.

LoCash Cowboys, ‘Best Seat in the House’ [Listen]

Fans of the LoCash Cowboys may do a double-take when the duo's new single begins. 'Best Seat in the House' is Chris Lucas' tribute to his late father, and it's more emotional than the party rockers have ever been. Dads may weep during this ballad.

Florida Georgia Line, ‘Stay’ [Listen]

'Stay' is the most important song of Florida Georgia Line's young career. The heartbreaker finds the two cocksure men bleeding and knocked down a few steps from the truck bed they confidently stood in for their first three singles. To sustain a lengthy country music career, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard need to prove they're a well-rounded duo.
