Carly Pearce’s new duet with Lee Brice, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” is No. 13 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week. Penned by Carly, Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana, “I Hope You’re Happy Now” is featured on Carly’s self-titled sophomore album, which was released in February. Carly recently sat down with Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown to talk about co-penning the tune with Luke Combs, just as his own 2016 debut single, “Hurricane,” was beginning to ascend into the stratosphere. “We’re both ’90s country babies, so it was very fun and very inspiring,” says Carly. “I’d never written with another artist, and it was just like we were on the same wavelength that day. And, it’s so interesting because I had played a show with him right as ‘Hurricane’ was happening, so before he had what he has, I was like, ‘I want to write with you,’ and we kept that day—months later—and it was meant to be. And I’ll forever champion him because he’s just so talented.â€� Carly and Lee recently dropped an acoustic version of “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which you can listen to below. [...]

Dustin Lynch dropped a blazing new video for his current single, “Momma’s House.” Directed by Mason Dixon, the new clip was filmed in Lafayette, Tennessee, which is approximately 60 miles northeast of Nashville. The fiery tune, which was penned by Dylan Schneider, Michael Lotten, Rodney Clawson and Justin Wilson, is the third single from Dustin’s 2020 album, Tullahoma. The new project takes its name from Dustin’s Tennessee hometown, which is about 80 miles southeast of Nashville. “Every song on Tullahoma, there’s a reason it’s there,â€� says Dustin. “A lot of that points back to the people who raised me, and growing up with a lifestyle where I could go outside and have fun, explore and try new things in the great outdoors. It’s kind of about being that kid and learning all those things. That’s my story, but I think we all can relate to the kid who’s discovering, the kid who’s figuring out love for the first time, all that good stuff.” Watch the video for “Momma’s House” below. [...]

Russell Dickerson dropped a new video for his current single, “Love You Like I Used To.” The tune, which is the first sample of new music from Russell’s upcoming sophomore album, serves as a love letter to his wife of six years, Kailey. “The beginning of this song is intentionally different from me,” says Russell. “It makes you think it is a breakup song, but it is really a lead up to how great loves evolve and get better over time. Like all of my songs, I’ve lived it. I started dating my wife 10 years ago, and it is true—I don’t love her like I used to, and I think a lot of people will be able to relate to this song. It’s a really special song that I’m crazy proud of!â€� After topping the charts with “Yours” and “Blue Tacoma” in 2018, Russell scored his third No. 1 single with “Every Little Thing” in November 2019. All three of Russell’s No. 1 songs are featured on his 2017 debut album, Yours. “The video is such a perfect visual for this song,” says Russell. “Love changes as it grows, you have to work on it, but it’s worth it—it gets better [...]

Since dropping her debut album, Kerosene, in March 2005, Miranda Lambert has served as one of the de facto “voices” in country music. With a résumé that includes 34 ACM Awards, 13 CMA Awards and two Grammy Awards over the last 15 years, Miranda has built herself into one of the most celebrated artists—male or female—in country music history. In a recent conversation with Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, Miranda noted that “staying true and never swaying” have been two keys to her success. Kix: “This discussion about the lack of female artists has been ongoing for a while now. Do you feel things are getting better on that front?” Miranda: “It’s circling back, yeah. I mean, I remember I came out with like 25 new female artists [in 2005], and the only two remaining off that list are Carrie [Underwood] and I. It’s kind of crazy, like to see how much it takes to get there, you know what I mean? And, they had the talent. It just was one of those things where it’s like, so at first you had to claw your way and now it’s the opposite. Now, we’re like lifting [each other] up.â€� Kix: “Why do you think [...]

Artists are continuing to find creative ways to make music videos during this time of social distancing. Luke Combs enlisted the help of his fans for his new “Does to Me” video by asking them to “share things that might not mean a lot to others, but did to them.” The feel-good clip features photos of everything from best-man speeches and scenic sunsets to first dates and family functions—and everything in between. Luke’s mom even shared a photo of some of his art from first grade. Luke is trying to score his eighth consecutive No. 1 single with “Does to Me,” which features vocals from Eric Church. The new tune, which was penned by Luke, Ray Fulcher and Tyler Reeve, is currently No. 11 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after 11 weeks. “Does to Me” is the third single from Luke’s 2019 album, What You See Is What You Get. “Eric Church was an obvious choice when it came to finding somebody to do that song with,” says Luke. “Not only does it—I feel—fit his writing style, but also his mentality and approach to music. I think it was just a really good fit.” Watch Luke’s new video below. [...]

Jordan Davis scored his third consecutive No. 1 single as “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” ascended to the top of the Mediabase country chart this week. Jordan and Lonnie Fowler penned “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” during a writing session in 2015. The tune was inspired by Lonnie’s first date with his future wife at a college formal—he didn’t want the night to end so he slow danced with her in a parking lot to Garth Brooks’ “She’s Every Woman.” “Sharing the truth in three and a half minutes . . . that is what a good country song does,” says Jordan. “It is what we wanted to do with ‘Slow Dance,’ tell this real and honest love story. It’s been great to see that authenticity resonate with fans. From slow dancing at our shows to sharing their own videos on socials slow dancing in parking lots, they’ve really embraced it. Big thanks to Lonnie for letting me share his story and to the fans and country radio for their continued support. I couldn’t be more proud or thankful.â€� “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” follows Jordan’s previous No. 1 singles, “Singles You Up” (April 2018) and “Take It From Me” [...]

During the 1,985 days between the release of his debut album and sophomore album, Sam got married, traveled the world and dropped the biggest country song of 2017, “Body Like a Back Road.” As Sam told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, he came to a “pretty big fork in the road” during the extended break between the release of his albums. As baseball great Yogi Berra once said, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.” “[The break] gave me some time to reflect on the two, three years prior,” says Sam. “It gave me some time to think about how I wanted to approach the next two, three, four, five, 10 years. It gave me some time to reconnect with the girl who I ended up getting married to, and kind of—I guess for lack of a better way to put it—put some roots down. Coming from a world where [...]

Keith Urban released a new video for his single, “God Whispered Your Name.” Penned by James Slater, Shy Carter, Micah Carter and Chris August, “God Whispered Your Name” is Keith’s first new music in 2020. The new video juxtaposes Keith in the isolation of a dark room (warehouse in Nashville) with the expansiveness of performing atop a boulder on mountainous terrain (outside Lancaster, Calif.). “I wanted to first try and capture a sense of isolation, a lonely, dark place, that transitions into light a bit more as the video progresses, which for me is how I found my own world opening up as I went along my journey,â€� says Keith. “That dark and lonely place, was underneath a warehouse in Nashville, literally the darkest, dank and smelly place. We spent the whole morning there shooting everything that you now see in the first part of the video.” The second part of the almost-four-minute clip finds Keith jamming atop a boulder, which had some inherent risks. “Playing guitar atop a boulder is definitely not a great idea,” adds Keith “You just kinda lose yourself in what you’re doing, and every minute or two you realize what you’re doing, and you think, ‘I better not fall off [...]
