This year, tune into newer artists as well as veteran artists who are still releasing new music and give them some exposure. There is some good stuff being released to digital outlets everywhere this month - check 'em out and please #sharethemusic!
If you are able to leave a review on the outlet you use, please do so and let them know how you like the song. These reviews are so helpful to an artist and their team. If you don't like the song, be constructive in your review, not rude. The point is to help these artists, not discourage. And yes, I know there are LOTS of good songs that have been released the past week or two and they're not all listed here. I choose the ones that stand out to me and those might not always stand out to you but at least you've heard about them. Most of the time they won't be by artists who saturate today's country radio but there might be one or two in there if the song hits me right.
Be sure to check out the artist's websites and find out more about them and the latest tour dates. Connect with them on social media.
