Great Music Currently at Country Radio [December 2]

The very best of country radio right here in a nice playlist. In order for a song to be added to the list, it must currently be in the top 60 of the Billboard Country Airplay chart, so this will be updated weekly. Normally this feature is part of The Hodgepodge, but I’ve decided to make this a weekly standalone post. Here’s where all the songs currently stand on the chart:

1. Chris Young – “I’m Comin’ Over”

5. Carrie Underwood – “Smoke Break”

7. Cam – “Burning House” 

12. Jana Kramer – “I Got The Boy” 

22. Eric Church – “Mr. Misunderstood”

26. Dierks Bentley – “Riser”

27. Chris Stapleton – “Nobody To Blame”

33. George Strait – “Cold Beer Conversation”

37. Jon Pardi – “Head Over Boots”

40. Maddie & Tae – “Shut Up and Fish” 

43. Frankie Ballard – “It All Started With A Beer”

44. William Michael Morgan – “I Met A Girl”

45. Kip Moore – “Running For You”

50. Justin Moore – “You Look Like I Need A Drink”

51. Mo Pitney – “Boy & A Girl Thing”

57. Ashley Campbell – “Remembering”

59. Toby Keith – “Beautiful Stranger” [New]

60. Love & Theft – “Whiskey on My Breath”

    Lucy Angel’s “Crazy Too” disappeared two weeks ago in the nether region of the chart, but felt the need to acknowledge it as a track that would have made my “Ahhhhhhhh, Soooooooo Close…” grading category (6 or 6.5 out of 10).

    While it is thematically redundant and pulls right out of Miranda Lambert’s or Carrie Underwood’s rocker-side playbook that is getting back st an ex, there’s still a lot that they got right that I dare say they do better than Underwood most of the time or Lambert half of the time.

    Firstly, it was undoubtedly very tightly-composed. You can tell a lot of care was put into each couplet of lines and each cadence, and how it all ties cohesively right back into the titular hook. Many of the rhymes were potent too.

    Secondly, the production reminds me of an earlier Miranda Lambert era, which is a compliment. It’s definitely more rock than country, but it still comes across as an authentic blend with unmistakable pulse.

    Finally, their vocals had some personality. I will say the rock production keeps the mother and two daughters from distinctively standing out as vocalists in their own right, but perhaps a follow-up ballad or softer track will do the trick.

    So, yeah, hope to see more groups of that sort impact the chart soon enough, and hopefully more of Lucy Angel.
