We’ve already seen new releases from some of our favorite artists, and there’s more to come. Here are a few of the best new country music releases so far.

Luke Bryan- “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day”

Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day is a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Luke Bryan. It was released to radio on March 21, 2016 as the lead single from his fifth studio album, Kill the Lights (2015). The song reached number one on the Country Airplay chart in August 2016, his sixteenth consecutive number-one on that chart.

Keith Urban- “The Fighter”

On “The Fighter,” Keith Urban team up with Carrie Underwood for a steamy duet from his forthcoming album, Ripcord. The country superstar co-wrote the song with Greg Wells and Ross Golan. “It was inspired by all those great Sly and the Family Stone records,” says Urban. “It was really fun to write.”

Blake Shelton- “Every Time I Hear That Song”

Blake Shelton has been having quite a year and now he’s trying to keep the good times going with a brand new single. The country superstar has just released “Every Time I Hear That Song,” the lead track from an upcoming album due out later this year.

The mid-tempo ballad finds Shelton reminiscing about a former love and all the memories that come flooding back every time he hears a certain song. “Every time I hear that song, I think about you/ And I can’t get you off my mind,” he sings. “Every time I hear that song, it takes me back in time.”

“Every Time I Hear That Song” is the first taste of new music from Shelton since he released If I’m Honest back in May of 2016. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and yielded three hit singles: “Came Here to Forget,” “A Guy with a Girl” and “Go Ahead and Break My Heart.”

Notable Mentions

2017 has been filled with new talent and fresh perspectives in the country music scene. Here are a few artists that have made waves this year and are predicted to have a big future in country music.

Jon Pardi- “Dirt on My Boots”

Pardi’s second album, California Sunrise, debuted at the top of the Billboard Country Albums chart and its lead single, “Head over Boots,” reached No. 1 on Country Airplay. “Dirt on My Boots” follows that same path with a sharp fiddle intro that gives way to Pardi’s unmistakable vocal twang. It’s a traditional country song about dirt, trucks and cold beer — everything that is right in the world.

Maren Morris- “My Church”

Maren Morris’ song “My Church” is a great example of new country music for 2017. The song has acatchy beat and Morris’ clear, powerful voice is front and center. The lyrics are about finding religion in music, and the song has a nice balance of country twang and pop sensibility.

Dierks Bentley- “Black”

Dierks Bentley is one of the biggest names in country music, and he’s back with a new album called “Black.” The lead single, “Somewhere on a Beach,” is already a huge hit, and Bentley is sure to have another big year with this new release.
