Austin-based alternative country band, Coleman Jennings and the Roaddogs, deliver — “Head Spinnin’” — the third single from their forthcoming debut five-track EP, Know No Leash, set for release on Friday, January 27.


With acoustic versus, “Head Spinnin’” has a tuneful arrangement accompanied with the intricacy of Travis guitar picking and poetic vocals leading up to a sweetly satisfying chorus backed by piano and drums. Undoubtedly, the track shines light on Coleman’s abilities as a composer and perceptive lyricist, who is wise beyond his years.

Russell Dickerson’s next single, “God Gave Me A Girl,” is out now. First sharing the song with the world on his recent self-titled album, Dickerson produced the single alongside Zach Crowell, the pair also wrote the song with Ashley Gorley and Chase McGill. The heartfelt, mid-tempo track tells the story of a narrator reflecting on how God led him to the love of his life after a string of heartbreaks.

“I love a love song, which is probably pretty clear to everyone at this point,” said Dickerson. “Once we latched onto the alliteration of it everything started building from there and the lyrics are very authentic to me, but I think relatable in that sometimes elusive search for the right person.”

9Jaimee Harris

Songwriter Jaimee Harris sat down to write what would become her new single, “Love Is Gonna Come Again.” “Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, my local music community and family experienced a tremendous amount of loss beginning in 2016,” remembers Harris. “I wanted so badly to encourage the grieving friends around me, particularly those who had lost their partners.” The song, originally started in 2017, was completed a few years later with Harris’s friend and frequent collaborator, Graham Weber. “He helped me by asking questions about what I’d want someone to say to me,” Harris says. “I realized what I’d want is for someone to acknowledge my pain, tell me it’s okay to not have a deadline on grief, and they’d hold onto that hope I couldn’t grab a hold of quite yet.”

Co-written with Brock Berryhill, Michael Hardy, Jake Mitchell, Randy Montana, Hunter Phelps and Taylor Phillips, album opener “Heaven By Then” highlights a way of life that can often feel like it’s disappearing, as the pace of everyday life continues to speed up.

“‘Heaven By Then’ came out of a conversation during a writers retreat in Texas that we do every year. A guitar ended up in HARDY’s lap, which is usually a good sign that it’s about to turn into something special. I think we all knew that as it was being written. It came to life that night.

“To have Blake Shelton and Vince Gill on the song meant so much to me. Those two brought so much to the table and gave it a voice I didn’t have. We were all in separate places when we recorded, but it was a cool way for everyone to put their spin on it. They just did what felt natural and sonically you hear that,” he concludes.
