Eldredge and Edgar Melt the Hearts of Country Music with "Love Someone (The Edgar Cut)"

On July 14th, 2016, Brett Eldredge posted on his Instagram a selfie with an adorable little brown, floppy-eared pupper, with the caption “Meet new partner in crime.” It didn’t take long for it to become quite evident that Eldredge and his new friend, Edgar, were inseparable. He tours with Brett, regularly appears on stage, and shows up on the country star’s Instagram on a very regular basis. Three months after his debut on social media, the young Weimaraner/ Vizsla mix got his own Instagram page that gave his already growing group of fans a look inside his inner dialogue. He only follows his dad, Brett, and his fellow Nashville dog celebrity, Doug the Pug, but he has amassed 214 T

Sam Hunt's "Downtown's Dead" Is Taken To a Whole New Level With this CRANKIN Video

Ok, so Downtown’s Dead may not be Sam Hunt’s best single to date. It’s chart performance, though respectable, was eclipsed by his other hits with only a #14 chart peak. The music video, however, helps bring the song some much needed substance. Sam trekked all the way to Bernal, Mexico to film this video, and it paid off. The video features him rambling around the quiet town of Bernal. Pushing an old, nondescript motorcycle, and riding it outside the town across the countryside. No, there isn’t much that happens in this video, but that is what makes it so perfect for this song. Clearly the scenery, deemed as random by some, doesn’t mirror the subject matter of the song exactly, but it taps

Jillian Jacqueline Proves that Often Times, a Record's Best Tunes are on "Side B"

Though Jillian spent most of her childhood familiar with the musical spotlight, she has only been recognizable in the public eye for about four years. She made a sizeable impact online with her release of “Overdue” featuring Vince Gill in 2014, which broke a million streams. Since then, she has become quite a prevalent name on the country music scene, making her first big impact on country radio with a close-but-no-cigar try for the top 40 on her #53 single, “Reasons.” “Reasons” was the lead single from her album, “Side A” from 2017, and in late August this year, she released the follow up to that project, “Side B,” which includes the Keith Urban featured single, “If I Were You.” “Overdue”

"One Shot" is New Territory for Hunter Hayes

By the time Hunter Hayes was a household name, he was certainly no stranger to the musical spotlight. He was a bit of a local celebrity in his home town at the tender age of 5 for his prowess on the accordion, and even shared the stage with Hank Williams Jr. on one occasion. He was still only nineteen when he made an impression on country radio with his top forty hit, “Storm Warning”, for which he recorded every instrument on the release (he did leave the accordion at home for this record, however). He’s graced the country radio with his tenor vocals and pop-leaning-but-original style several times since then. He has not come out with a full album since his 7 song album, 21 Project, which fe
