Warner Music Nashville“All my Queens now get in formation,” RaeLynn tweeted on Friday. [“Queen’s Don’t”] is OUT,” she added, along with the cover of her new single, showing her sitting on a throne with a crown and a scepter.

ABC/Image Group LA You can hear an early version of Walker Hayes‘ first top ten hit, “You Broke Up with Me,” on his new digital re-release of two volumes titled 8Tracks.

Back in the summer of 2016, Walker gave them away for free to get noticed.

“We’re putting out the …read more

Triple Tigers Records / Sony Music Seasons have changed for Scotty McCreery.

The 2011 American Idol went from having #1 albums to parting ways with his record label in early 2016.

Just last month, “Five More Minutes” became Scotty’s first #1, and on Friday, the hard-fought full album that features the tune arrives.

“That’s why I love this record so much, is …read more
