Listen Now: Luke Laird, Lori McKenna, And Barry Dean “Give Me Back My Hometown”
For their third and final—for now—installation of The Songwriter Tapes, decorated songwriters Luke Laird, Lori McKenna, and Barry Dean are yet again demonstrating the timelessness of a great song. Each volume of The Songwriter Tapes includes brand new recordings of three songs that even part-time country music fans will be familiar with, if not already fans of, and one tune that has yet to see the light of day. Choosing the four songs for each of the songwriters to sing was a collaborative process. And while it may have been difficult to narrow it down to 12 tracks after more than 65 collective years in country music, the result is a timeless anthology of career-defining songs from as far back as 2004 and as recent as 2020.

Listen Now: “Stray Dog” by Justin Moore
“I think this was a great example of what people are going to get on this album – some unique ideas and titles. I don’t know how much that matters to other artists. Back when we had CDs and cassette tapes and the titles were on the back, before I would listen to anything, be it some album I bought or a list of 20 songs I’d get pitched, I would read the titles and see if anything jumped off the page at me. When you read a title, you think, “Oh that’s about this,” and then when it surprises you, that’s always fun for me. SONGWRITERS: Justin Moore, Paul DiGiovanni, Randy Montana, Jeremy Stover HERE’S WHAT JUSTIN SAYS ABOUT THE SONG:

Listen Now: Lainey Wilson: You Can’t Always Get What You Want

The album features a who’s who of country music and their interpretations of Rolling Stones hits.
Out Now: Justin Moore x Priscilla Block’s steamy video for “You, Me, and Whiskey
Multi-PLATINUM Country hitmaker Justin Moore and PLATINUM-selling newcomer Priscilla Block release the steamy new video for the “anthemic” (Billboard) duet “You, Me, and Whiskey.” Directed by Cody Villalobos, the smoldering track’s Yellowstone-leaning visual is full of passion, wilder days and even some content that isn’t quite suitable to watch at work as it follows a couple trying to keep the spark alive.
Listen Now: Tim Dugger Releases “Buy A Bar”
Curb Records recording artist Tim Dugger trades heartbreak for enterprise on new track “Buy A Bar.” The lyrically clever original evolves into a full-on singalong when the Curb Records artist reasons he’s spending so much time down at the local watering hole drowning his sorrows, he might as well just cash in all his chips and buy the place.
