There is a lot going on in country music today. There are many new comers bringing their own unique style of music into the country world–especially on the women’s side.
Country has always been about cowboy hats, trucks, and boots. But, with newcomers Kelsea Ballerini and Cam singing about boys, love, and breakups, country music is developing a new sound.
Kelsea Ballerini currently has her first album “The First Time” out including her hit songs “Dibs” and “Love Me Like You Mean it”. Cam has released her first album since her single “Down This Road” in 2013 called “Welcome to Cam Country”. She has various new songs on this album such as “My Mistake” and “Half Broken Heart”.
These are just two of the new women in country music. Courtney Cole, Sara Haze, Cassadee Pope, Maddie and Tae, and RaeLynn are also either working on new albums, or have recently released albums. Along with songs like “I Got The Boy”, “Fly”, and “My Church” the women of country music are giving the men a run for their money.
On the men’s side, Blake Shelton, Chris Young, Tyler Farr, Cole Swindell, and Luke Bryan are keeping the old country sound with songs about drinking, boots, partying, and trucks. “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey”, “Better in Boots”, “Kick the Dust Up” and “Head Over Boots” are only a few of the newest hit songs in country music by men. Along with Lee Bryce and Tim McGraw, there are many country albums coming out or already out by these guys.
We wish the best of luck to all the newcomers, as well as the veterans on their up coming albums and tours.
