Wade Bowen – “When I Woke Up Today”
One of the many solid songs from Wade Bowen’s new, great self-titled album. Bowen’s music videos always do a great job of telling a story for the song and this one is no different.
First Aid Kit – “America” (Cover)
Is there anything this Swedish duo can’t sing? This is a cover of Paul Simon’s iconic “America” and of course they hit a home run with it. Just like Bowen, these two always do a great job with their music videos too. If you haven’t listened to their album Stay Gold released back in June (a candidate for Country Perspective’s Best Country Album of 2014), go listen to it as soon as possible.
Stoney LaRue – “Aviator”
The Texas Country/Red Dirt artist has landed on a major label for his new album and has received high praise from country music critics, including Country Perspective’s own Derek Hudgin in his review of the album. Here’s the album’s title track from LaRue’s great new album.
Eric Paslay – “She Don’t Love You” (Acoustic Performance & Interview)
I gave Eric Paslay’s self-titled debut album a solid grade and he blew me away even more when I saw him perform in person. And the video below enforces once again why I consider Paslay one of the better artists in mainstream country music. He talks about how the song came about and the effect it has on crowds when he plays it. This will be one of my candidates for Country Perspective’s Best Country Song of 2014.
