Ian Munsick released his sophomore album White Buffalo, out now. With 18 tracks that all credit Munsick as a co-writer and co-producer, White Buffalo is an ode to his homeland and serves as a raw, untamed depiction of the American West.

“All I’ve ever wanted to do as a country music artist is represent the West,” Munsick shared. “The land, people, stories and culture are all what give me endless inspiration to create music. I started writing the songs for White Buffalo three years ago. I’d never been so eager to write, and a big factor in that excitement was the way you all responded to my last album, Coyote Cry. But this time, I really wanted to transport all five of your senses to where I was born and raised. I hope you smell the alfalfa pastures, taste the crack-of-dawn Folgers coffee, feel the numbing waters of the Blackfoot river, hear the summer wind blowing through the Indian Paintbrush and, finally, see the White Buffalo wandering through the Wyoming prairie. This album is for the West… thank you for letting me take you there.”

Miles Miller’s new song, “Highway Shoes,” is out now. Reflecting on the song, Miller shares, “A classic love song to the road. Realizing that after dealing with all your troubles, it’s time to just get out of town; hit the road. About not caring where that road is taking you either, because no matter what, life probably won’t be fair. And while that may seem like a burden, it’s a blessing in disguise. There’s a lot of freedom on the road.”

Grammy-winning rock band Greta Van Fleet’s much anticipated third studio album Starcatcher is set for release July 21. The album’s first single “Meeting The Master” is out now.
The bands notes, “‘Meeting The Master’ peers into an esoteric world heeded by the word of a wise teacher. Sung in the voice of a devout believer, and eventual group exclamation, the song details the love these fervent followers have for their teacher and their firm belief in his vision. It’s an exotic spiritual journey. A dark comedy that inevitably ends in chaos.”

10Darren Nicholson

“Dillsboro Blues” is a hillbilly, moody blues tune Nicholson wrote in honor of his mother. It’s about the little town in Western North Carolina where she was born and raised. The tune represents struggles; the ups and downs of a hard life and the willingness to keep fighting to persevere. “She’s got true grit and is an inspiration to me,” says Nicholson. “Love you, Mom!”
