Dierks Bentley "Living"
Bentley is bringing the life advice hard in this track off his latest album The Mountain. In Living" he is reminding his audience to grab all the happiness they can, while they can. Bentley is openly admitting in the son that he sometimes looks past the things that are good right in front of him. While in Las Vegas where he debuted the song during a concert, Bentley told the audience, "We try to live every day. No matter what we do, we try to do something that makes us feel like we're living. That's how this song came about."
Maren Morris "Rich"
Off of her debut album Hero, Morris shared the tune "Rich" where it finds Morris swearing off the guy who continues to break her heart, while also imagining a wealthy life. Morris told Rolling Stone Country, "I want people to listen to this and feel like it's their friend saying it to them." Morris followed up the song with an epic music video featuring her husband Ryan Hurd.
Garth Brooks "All Day Long"
"Ask Me How I Know" was the long-awaited single return of legendary country artist Garth Brooks. It had been over 20 years since Brooks released new music and the tune was up to speed with the current state of country music. However, his follow up single "All Day Long" struck a chord with his lifelong fans because it sounded like "Old Garth." The single was inspired by Layla's Honky Tonk on Lower Broadway in Nashville when he was performing there. The single will be from Brooks' forthcoming studio album available next year.
Kacey Musgraves "Slow Burn"
Musgraves released "Slow Burn" as the song to kick off her latest project Golden Hour. The song is a ballad that draws on Musgraves folk roots. Also noted in the song is a much different sound than her typical electronic keyboard and unique adds in the other songs off the album. Musgraves wants the audience to take away a slowing place in life instead of always rushing like the rest of the world.
