Kip Moore Shows that Less is More in EP- Room to Spare

In September of 2011 Kip Moore debuted on country radio with the undeniably country single, “Somethin Bout a Truck,” which went number one on Billboard Hot Country Songs and peaked at 39 on Billboard Hot 100. He followed it up with the single, “Beer Money,” keeping it redneck by putting beer on a pedestal, but leaning more towards “love song”, saying, “hey, I can take you away from it all with this beer money in my pocket if you’ll let me.” In 2013, he truly let his sensitive side show with the beautiful story love song, “Hey Pretty Girl.” Since then he’s kept our foots tapping, but has not let us forget about his capacity for a good love story; and in his new acoustic EP, Room to Spare, he

Caitie Andreen Keeps it Real with new EP- "These Days"

Caitie Andreen has been writing since she was 12 years old, but for awhile it was something that she kept to herself for the most part. It took her until she was in her 20’s to decide her songs were something worth sharing, but in 2016 she moved to Nashville to try to turn her passion into a career. Since then, Caitie has released a single in 2017 entitled “Cheating on You” and another in early 2018 called “Shade of Blonde.” Now, as she wraps up her third year in the Music City, she prepares to release her first EP tomorrow, called “These Days.” Despite her initial difficulty in opening up with her music, with this new EP, Caitie Andreen manages to achieve a level of musical authenticity th

Josh Gracin Talks Football, “Good for You”, and Swinging for the Fences

Country star Josh Gracin has been making great music since 2004, and after a bit of a break from the spotlight, he has a new type of tune to offer his fans. His new single is called “Good for You,” and while it is quite a bit different from his earlier works, it might just be a homerun. We caught up with him yesterday to talk about the song and where he’s headed from here. After flying under the radar for a little bit, how does it feel to be getting back into it and getting back on radio? It feels really good… It’s one of those things where you’re like a quarterback that used to be the starter, had a couple bad years or bad throws... and it’s kind of like that, where I’ve been watching count

HARDY’s “This Ole Boy” is as Redneck as it Sounds in All the Best Ways

Nashville songwriter Michael Hardy has certainly had a taste of success in the country music with writing credits on Morgan Wallen/ Florida Georgia Line’s #1 “Up Down,” Florida Georgia Line’s “Simple,” as well as Seth Ennis’ “Call Your Momma.” Florida Georgia Line, however, recognized his potential as more than just a writer (as they seem to have become accustomed to doing) and encouraged him to pursue it. Florida Georgia Line certainly called it right on this one, because Michael Hardy, now HARDY as an artist, just released his debut EP with Big Loud Records; and it features no shortage of praisable elements. HARDY grew up in a 7,500 population town called Philadelphia, Mississippi. He is n
