“Happy For A While” wrestles with the sacrifices and uncertainties of devoting a life to music. The song’s personal lyric might justifiably be called confessional. But it’s no mopey plea for sympathy, much less pity. As Daniel observes, “Loneliness is an inherent part of being on the road and being an artist in general. You’re in your head a lot.”

Nat Myers announced his debut album Yellow Peril yesterday, a blistering collection of back-porch blues. Jason Momoa shared the title track yesterday stating,”steeped in history, in poetry, in old 78s, but nevertheless sounds current, capturing its creator’s idiosyncrasies as well as the country’s contradictions.”

The National Parks just released its fifth full-length album, 8th Wonder, and it’s out now. Along with Megan Parks on violin, Sydney Macfarlane on vocals and keys, and Cam Brannelly on drums, The National Parks want listeners to feel the rush of running and jumping into a lake at full speed; the feeling of the clouds parting and bathing in the warm sun; or being met with a gust of cool, morning air upon stepping outside. You can seen them perform at Basement East on October 5th.

90’s favorite country trio, McBride & The Ride, is continuing their wildly successful comeback with the release of “Along Comes A Girl” on March 3. Driving guitars, heartfelt lyrics, and infectious three-part harmonies abound on this sentimental track.
The song takes listeners on a sweet journey into the blessing of having daughters through all stages of life. Between the three original members, Terry McBride, Billy Thomas, and Ray Herndon, each proudly sports the title of either dad, stepdad, or grandad, to daughters and granddaughters.

Vocalist, songwriter and producer Miya Folick unveils a new song today, “Mommy.”
“Mommy is maybe the most intimate song on my record,” Folick says. “It’s about heritage, memory and family. I think there’s an ache in the song that exposes the gap between my limited understanding of my parents and the full richness of their lives. The first time I played this song live was at The Echo in Los Angeles, and my mom showed up—not joking—with a jar of honey for me, to soothe my throat (you’ll understand this anecdote when you listen to the song).”  Folick will be perform at The Ryman on April 10.

Artist to watch Drayton Farley’s anticipated new album, Twenty on Highis out today via Hargrove Records/Thirty Tigers.

Reflecting on the record, Farley shares, “My new album, Twenty on High will serve as my breakout record and I believe these ten new songs to be my absolute best work yet. This album will be my first ever full band release. The goal was to keep the songs honest and true and their stories at the forefront. To have the music serve the song but still make a record that would stand the test of time. I believe that’s exactly what we’ve done here and I couldn’t be prouder.”
