Country Music France’s Top 30 playlist – Update #8

Country Music France Top 30 Spotify playlist includes the blog’s current 30 favorite songs. Together with the albums, EP’s and song reviews, this playlist is an important way for this blog to share actual songs that belong to country music, red dirt, americana or southern rock genres. Here’s the 8th udpate, with 19 new songs, recently released. As it’s a Spotify playlist, conceived to be potentially shuffle played, there’s no particular order between the 30 songs. This playlist lives on Spotify, but if you don’t use this streaming service, you can check out the list below and find the songs you want to listen to wherever you want. If you like them, I also invite you to listen to the albums and other songs of those great artists.

Heard It Through The Red WineCharlie Marie

After her brilliant 2019 self-titled EP, reviewed on this blog here, Charlie Marie will release her debut LP, named “Ramble On“, on May 7th. With her unique voice and her classic country style, the artist from Rhode Island released the superb “Heard It Through The Red Wine” (check out its great music video below) and the also strongly recommended “40 Miles From Memphis“.

17 Wild Horses – Rich O’Toole

One year after the excellent LP “New York“, reviewed here, the Houston native artist Rich O’Toole is writing new music for an upcoming album, and “17 Wild Horses” is the debut single. It’s a great country rock song, inspired by the TV show Yellowstone, and its video, that you can check out below, is absolutely fantastic.

One Life Stand – Lauren Mascitti

Her album “God Made A Woman” was one of the most brilliant records of 2020, and Lauren Mascitti is definitely a name you must know if you love classic country music. The Ohio native artist just released a new single. “One Life Stand” is a beautiful song, and you definitely need to watch the amazing music video (check it out below), directed by Pam Tillis and Josh Sikkema. It’s old-school, excellently written and Lauren Mascitti’s voice is beautiful. A gem!

Love SomeoneNate Fredrick

The Missouri native artist Nated Fredrick recently released his brilliant debut album (You can check out my review there) and “Love Someone“, one its most outstanding songs, is the quintessence of country music.

Ain’t The Same – Blackberry Smoke

You Hear Georgia“, that will be released on May 28th, is one of the most awaited albums of 2021. The band has already released three songs, and the last one, “Ain’t The Same“, is absolutely brilliant. With Blackberry Smoke, the southern rock tradition is more alive than ever. Can’t wait for the LP!

Where Have You Gone – Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson will release a new album, “Where Have You Gone“, almost six years after his last one, “Angels and Alcohol“. The traditional country artist released the title track, and it’s so beautiful! It’s hard and pure country music. A real gem for all those who want to listen to real country. The album is almost here and I can’t wait to listen to it.

Texas Swing – Triston Marez

Triston Marez is one of those young Texan artists who brilliantly carry on the tradition of real country music. His previous EP’s, ‘That Was All Me” and “Until I Found You” (both reviewed on this blog here and here) are brilliant, and his self-titled debut LP, released on April 16th, was very awaited. “Texas Swing“, cowritten with Gabe Lee and performed with Jessica Roadcap and the Tex-Mex quartet Squeezebox Bandits, is part of this LP and it’s absolutely great. A gem that you must listen right now, if you haven’t done it yet.

Wilder Days – Morgan Wade

The Virginia native artist Morgan Wade released her debut album, “Reckless“, on March 19th, and it’s absolutely brilliant. “Wilder Days” is an impressive and catchy song, beautifully written and performed, and the music video (you can check it out below), recently released, is amazing.

Better Days – Dallas Moore

Dallas Moore’s new album, “The Rain“, released on April 9th, is a gem for honky tonk lovers, as was his previous album, “Tryin’ To Be A Blessing” (you can check out my review here). The truth is that I could have chosen any one of its songs for this playlist. All are brilliant and I strongly recommend you to listen to it, if you haven’t done it yet. “Better Days“, the new single, is very representative of the Ohio native artist’s music. So great!

Closer To The Mill (Going To California)– JP Harris & Chance McCoy

Closer To The Mill (Going To California)” is part of a new project of JP Harris, a new album of traditional Appalachian music named “Don’t You Marry No Railroad Man“, that will be released on June 25th. Performed with Chance McCoy, from Old Crow Medicine Show, “Closer to The Mill” is really beautiful. You can also watch its excellent music video (check it out below).

Waiting on A Train – Vandoliers

There’s a new song of Texas band Vandoliers, named “Waiting On A Train“, produced by Bruce Robison and released on The Next Waltz. It’s a brilliant and catchy song, that you will undoubtedly have on repeat!

While You Can – Southern Brave

Southern Brave, a band founded by Don Stalling, from West Texas, and Chris Sanchez, lead guitarist, from Fort Worth, is absolutely essential if you love red dirt music. “While You Can” is a brilliant song that is the quintessence of the genre. You can check out my review of the song there.

Angry At This Town – Mason Lively

The Texan artist Mason Lively released a brilliant self-titled album on March 19th. With great music and songwriting, “Angry At This Town” is representative of the high quality of this album. Check out the song and the LP: it’s great!

Drag Me Down – Graycie York

After her debut EP, “Words To Say“, and the excellent “Texas Rain“, the Texan artist Graycie York released another great single on April 23th, named “Drag Me Down“. It’s particularly brilliant, and I’m sure you’ll have on repeat this amazing song.

Blue Night – Jake Blocker

Jake Blocker, from South Texas, released his debut album, “I keep Forgetting“, last year. “Blue Night” is one of its outstanding songs, released as a single on January. As the whole album, it’s traditional and high quality country music sung by an artist who is only 16 year old. Listen to this beautiful song, you’ll love it!

Honey, Shake! – Mac Leaphart

Honey, Shake!” is one of the best songs of Mac Leaphart’s new album, “Music City Joke“, released on February 12th. Along with “That Train” and “Blame On the Bottle“, other singles from this brilliant LP, it’s an outstanding song, catchy and excellently written. Check out the album, if you haven’t listened to it yet : it’s great!

Pelicans – Kurt Fortmeyer

Kurt Fortmeyer is a talented artist from North Carolina. His music is authentic and “Pelicans“, his brand new song, released on April 9th, is not an exception. It’s really beautiful, catchy and excellently written. I’m sure you’ll love it!

Hey Mary – Slade Coulter

Slade Coulter is a talented artist from Jayton, Texas, who released an acclaimed EP, “Here We Go Again“, last year. His new song, “Hey Mary“, is a great red dirt tune, with excellent songwriting. Listen to it, you’ll love this song!

Country At All – Scooter Brown Band

The country rock band from Houston Scooter Brown Band released a brand new song on February 26th. With such lyrics as “I’m proud to be baptized on three chords and the truth, but all I hear lately is one chord and a loop“, “Country At All” is all about bringing traditional country music back on the radio. Awesome music and songwriting!
