Country on the Rise: February 20, 2021
Every Saturday morning, Kari highlights some of her favorite new country songs during the new 9 a.m. show, Country on the Rise.
From new songs by artists you already know and love to tunes from country up-and-comers, Country on the Rise covers the industry's latest gems and gives them their much-deserved spotlight.
Here are Kari's featured songs for Country on the Rise's February 20 episode.
Jameson Rodgers (feat. Luke Combs) - "Cold Beer Calling My Name"
Now this is a power duo. Luke Combs hopped on a track for Jameson Rodgers and the result is a nothin'-but-a-good-time, beer-drinkin' song. Cheers!
Eric Burgett - "Rich Man"
Born and raised on a family farm in Illinois, Eric Burgett started playing piano at his parents' tavern and Sunday church services, and he has now made it an integral part of his unique country sound. Here's his latest single, "Rich Man."
Jimmie Allen (feat. Brad Paisley) - "Freedom Was a Highway"
Old school meets new school in this collaboration from Jimmie Allen and Brad Paisley. "Freedom Was a Highway" is the perfect song for an afternoon drive, and it wouldn't be a Brad Paisley song without a fiery guitar solo.
Lainey Wilson - "Neon Diamonds"
Lainey Wilson sings what she calls "bell-bottom country." She has all the sass and all the talent, and frankly we're obsessed. The music video for "Neon Diamonds" is giving us all the "That '70s Show" vibes, and we are here for it.
Meghan Patrick - "My First Car"
Meghan Patrick is a Canadian country girl through and through, and has seen that love come right back. She's won CCMA Female Artist of the Year twice and been nominated for a total of eight CCMAs. Was your first car a pickup truck? If so, you might just relate to Patrick's latest single....
Scotty McCreery - "You Time"
Can we assume Scotty McCreery's love language is quality time? Scotty McCreery's new single is upbeat and simply put, a jam. It's crazy to think that it's been ten years since his appearance on American Idol.
