After the release of his huge 30 track double album, Morgan Wallen hit #1 on Billboard 200 albums chart and had the largest streaming week ever for a country record. Prior to this release, his first 2018 album, 'If I Know Me,' peaked at No. 13 and has accrued 2.4 billion streams since. Yes, the album has 30 songs, but it still beat and doubled Luke Combs record of 102.26 million streams for 'What You See Is What You Get' by taking in a whopping 240.18 million on-demand streams in it's first week. That's a hell of an album release. We've all...

During an online press conference earlier today, Garth Brooks revealed that he received a phone call from Jill Biden asking him to perform at Biden's inauguration this coming Wednesday, January 20th. After taking the weekend to think it over, Garth accepted the invite, stating "this is not a political statement, this is a statement of unity." Even though Garth revealed he is a republican, he also performed at Obama's inauguration in 2008.

Fresh off his first number 1 on Country radio, Parker released the music video for his second single today, 'To Be Loved By You.' Parker isn't your typical Texas country singer, he mixes just the right amount of the mainstream sound without the typical Nashville aspect. As artists like Morgan Wallen gear up for a huge year, Parker is definitely included in the list of country artists to break out and have huge careers. This is one of my favorite songs from Parker so far. Checkout the video below.

Just when I thought they couldn't get any worse.  There was a time when FGL was the biggest thing in country music. As far as mainstream goes, it went Jason Aldean to Luke Bryan, to FGL, to Thomas Rhett, and now Luke Combs and Morgan Wallen. None of those other guys have "fell off," there's just something new and fresh and a shit ton of talent to be heard. With that said, it's no longer just the fact that new artists have came around. It's not just the fact that I may dislike their music for not being my taste...
