Eric Church – Heart On Fire

Speaking directly to fans in a video message delivered to the Church Choir, reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Eric Church confirmed that new music is on the horizon: “I have three albums coming out in April. They came out of my 28 days in the mountains of North Carolina, where the songs were recorded and written. The collection is entitled Heart & Soul.” Watch the announcement here.

In keeping with his longtime commitment to put fans first, Church created the middle album, &, specifically for the Church Choir and will make it available exclusively to those fans and only as a vinyl record on Tuesday, April 20. The other two albums, Heart and Soul, will be available everywhere on Friday, April 16 and Friday, April 23, respectively. ‘Heart’ is available for pre-order here, ‘Soul’ can be pre-ordered here. ‘Heart On Fire’ is the opening track on ‘Heart’ and latest single to be released from the project.

Along with prioritizing his fans, just as important to Church is the constant desire to push the limits of his artistry, an effort that was on full display during the month-long creative process that went into the creation of this collection.

“I’ve always been intrigued when a song is born in a writer room – there is a magic that happens there,” shares Church of the unique process that went into making this project. “I wanted to put that in the studio form. So, every day, we would write a song in the morning and we would record the song that night. Doing it that way allowed for the songwriters to get involved in the studio process and the musicians to be involved in the creative process. You felt a little bit like you were secretly doing something that was special, and you knew it… You started going, ‘hmm, wait ’til the world finds out about this.'”

The final result of that inclusive process is a three-part, 24-song collection from the man Stereogum praises as “the most consistently interesting star in the Nashville ecosystem” which features an elite list of songwriters who joined the secluded marathon writing and recording sessions. Part of the recording process for the project anchored solely by Church, with no features, were his longtime producer Jay Joyce and backing vocalist Joanna Cotten, as well as his touring band who played alongside some of Nashville’s most talented studio musicians on the album (full musician credits listed below).

“The interesting thing about this process is that Jay kept asking me the last three or four days, ‘Are we done?’ and at that time I didn’t know what the project was,” notes Church. “I kept saying ‘God, this is going to be really hard. There’s a lot here. Is this a double album? And if it’s a double album, how do we leave out these five or six songs?’ I am the hardest critic on making sure every song deserves to be on the record, and I beat this thing to death going ‘this can’t be that good.’ But, it was just a special, special time and a special, special project that I think will be among our best.”

Concluding his video message to fans, Church reflected, “It’s been a long 10 months. With the power of music and love for each other, we will get through this, we will gather again soon. I cannot wait to play this music for you live.”

That belief in the unifying power of music will be on display again in the coming weeks, as Church takes to the field at Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, February 7 to perform the National Anthem with R&B star Jazmine Sullivan ahead of Super Bowl LV.

Not Just Charlie – Get Around

Written on the back deck of a housetruck on a broken ukulele and recorded during Victoria’s 7-month lockdown, Get Around is a lament that yearns for the open road, at the same time as trying to make peace with staying at home.

Featuring The Waifs’ Ben Franz, Dave Mann, Melanie Robinson (Tim Rogers/You Am I), Tim Bennett, Mal Webb and a bunch of other incredible Australian talent, Not Just Charlie is a new adult contemporary folk-roots project from Formidable Vegetable’s Charlie Mgee (who’s organic family-funk tunes have recently racked up high rotation on global radio behemoth SiriusXM) diving into what it means to be human in a time of unprecedented uncertainty, isolation and disconnection from community and country.

JERKSTORE. – Eyes Closed (ft. r.em.edy)

After receiving national radio play on triple j unearthed with their last single in December of 2020, the Jerks return for the first release of the new year. Eyes Closed ft. r.em.edy is a swooning, pop rap tune capturing elements of disco and modern hiphop, showing off the groups range playing across genres alongside an impressive, powerful hook from guest vocalist r.em.edy.

With JERKSTORE releasing a number of singles throughout 2021, an EP due in April and a debut album in August, the team is expected to have a strong year.

Lainey Wilson – Things A Man Oughta Know

Buzzed-about newcomer and “one of Country music’s most promising young stars,” (Whiskey Riff), Lainey Wilson today announces her hotly-anticipated studio album, Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’ is set to release February 19 via BBR Music Group/Broken Bow Records. Those who pre-order the album will immediately have access to the brand-new track and album opener, “Neon Diamonds” (a song which a prominent tv booker said he hadn’t “heard a more perfect ‘grab-you-in’ start to an album since Thriller”). LISTEN HERE.

A prolific songwriter, Wilson co-wrote every song on the album, generously and courageously sharing her thoughts, stories, feelings and heart with the world. The lyrics, rooted in messages of honesty, thoughtfulness and authenticity showcase the Louisiana native’s awe-inspiring self-awareness, empowering others with her strength through vulnerability. As producer, GRAMMY® Award-winning mastermind, Jay Joyce, brought Lainey’s signature “Bell Bottom Country” sound to life, which blends traditional Country with a funky, yet modern flare. The Boot also notes her sound as “a cross between easy listening and hard truths.”

“I am proud of every piece of this record and all the people that have helped bring it to fruition,” said Lainey Wilson. “Finally being able to share this body of work is the most fulfilling and rewarding moment of my life thus far.”

Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’ includes her current radio single, “Things A Man Oughta Know,” which has garnered more than 35 million streams, earning a place on Spotify’s Nashville’s Worldwide Hot 50 and has been in the Top 5 consumption per spin and streams per spin for the past 17 consecutive weeks. A fan and critic favorite, the song was featured in NPR’s Best Music of 2019 saying it, “proves [Wilson] capable of blending a thoroughly countrified vocal approach with digitally sharpened contemporary production, thanks to the suppleness and body of her honeyed, crystalline twang.”

Already having music featured in the hit series Yellowstone three times, the rockstar performer has earned a host of recognition as a rising star-being named to a slew of “ones to watch” lists (Pandora, The Boot, Sounds Like Nashville, etc.) including MusicRow’s “Next Big Thing 2021,” being a part of CMT’s Next Women of Country and CMT’s Listen Up programs and being featured in publications like Forbes, Rolling Stone, New York Times, Billboard and NPR.

The “vocalist of unmatched talent, humbled by her characteristic humor and wit,” (American Songwriter) will return to the Grand Ole Opry stage Saturday, February 20 as part of her week-long celebrations for the album’s launch. Additional launch plans will be announced in the coming weeks.


“One of Country music’s most promising young stars,” (Whiskey Riff) Lainey Wilson is the total package. Earning the enthusiasm of the industry, named as an “Artist to Watch” by MusicRow, Pandora, The Boot , and Sounds Like Nashville (to name a few) and included in CMT’s “Next Women of Country” and “Listen Up” programs, the Louisiana native is one of Nashville’ most buzzed-about new artists, garnering early praise for her “unabashedly down-home and unflappably worldly” (NPR) style and exhibiting “just enough scars and pragmatism to write great, universal country songs” (Taste of Country). Set to release her first album as a signed artist this February, her music has already been featured in the hit drama series Yellowstone three times, graced the Grand Ole Opry stage and was covered in publications like Forbes, Rolling Stone, New York Times, Billboard and NPR. With a rockstar stage presence, her artistry has taken her across the globe, performing for sold-out crowds throughout the US, UK, and Germany with notable names like Justin Moore, Tyler Farr, Ashley McBryde, Randy Houser, Josh Turner, Morgan Wallen, and more.

The “vocalist of unmatched talent, humbled by her characteristic humor and wit,” (American Songwriter) left her small farming community in a camper trailer to chase her dreams and has been carving her own unique place in the country music landscape ever since. Creating a sound and style all her own with “Bell Bottom Country,” which blends traditional Country with a modern yet retro flare, Lainey is a fresh, fierce voice in Nashville. A prolific writer (having co-writer credits on songs by artists including Luke Combs), Lainey shares her feelings, stories, experiences and understandings through her music. Described as “a cross between easy listening and hard truths” by The Boot, Lainey’s music (and character) is largely driven by her values and self-conviction. Her new album, produced by GRAMMY Award-winning mastermind Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Miranda Lambert), Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin,’ is set to be released February 19 via BBR Music Group/ Broken Bow Records. Following the sentiment of the title track, the entire album is rooted in authenticity, honesty and thoughtfulness-representative of Lainey’s own character. The album includes her current radio single and “song every country fan needs to hear” (Taste of Country), “Things A Man Oughta Know.” With more than 35 million streams, the song is a fan and critic favorite, spurring a flurry of activity across social media as well as included in “must listen” lists in publications like NPR and Rolling Stone.

Spacey Jane – Booster Seat

Fremantle four piece Spacey Jane have been gaining fans since they started, a mere four years ago, with every piece of music they have released. After a handful of EP’s it was their debut album ‘Sunlight’, released in June 2020 that showed how significant that following was. It debuted at #2 on the ARIA Album Chart.

The song that has captured the most attention is ‘Booster Seat’. Over the last six months the song continues to win over new fans and is now starting to climb the Spotify Australia Chart (#58 at writing) and looking like factoring in triple j’s annual Hottest 100 poll.

‘Booster Seat’ is a song about a complex but common issue of anxiety and depression taking control away from you and relying on others in the same way children trusted their parents to keep them safe. Spacey Jane make the subject lighter, breezy and the sound effortless and, as their album title suggests “sunny”.

‘Booster Seat’ is a special song and one that I’m sure will be entering many more peoples worlds as we drift into 2021.

Troy Cassar-Daley – Back On Country

Australian country music legend Troy Cassar-Daley announces his first studio album in five years, THE WORLD TODAY, is set for release March 19 via Sony Music Entertainment Australia. This will be the 11th studio album from the multiple ARIA and Golden Guitar winner in just over 3 decades of making music. PRE-ORDER HERE

Alongside the announce, Troy has released the first single from the album, ‘Back On Country’. Speaking on the track Troy explains, “‘Back On Country’ is a term largely used by Indigenous Australians and it gives us the feeling of belonging. My dream is that everyone can feel connection and have the responsibility to look after Our land together as one people.” The driving, guitar laden track caries that message with Troy’s iconic vocals and powerful song writing: “No matter what your bloodlines / we belong to this land”. LISTEN HERE

The forthcoming album was sparked from a moment of deep reflection, as Troy explains, “THE WORLD TODAY songs started flowing not long after losing my Father. I looked at myself in the mirror one morning and asked myself “what do I have to say?” and “where do I go from here?” Then COVID hit and I was like a rudderless ship bouncing in a sea of nothingness. Instead of staying in the darkness that had surrounded me I found light in making music and telling stories, which was my saving grace as a kid and to this day as an adult. Suddenly I had 25 songs, a new deal with Sony Music Australia and some purpose to make new music once again.”

Pulling himself from that dark time, Troy found joy in writing with old friends and playing bass and drums on some of the rough demos in his home studio. Joined by friends and long-time collaborators – producer Matt Fell and engineer Ted Howard.

Troy’s songs have been the soundtrack to the everyday triumphs, struggles and good times for Australians from our small towns to the big cities and this record is no different. It’s testament to the longstanding career of the 50th inductee into the prestigious Australasian Roll Of Renown, who has also been awarded numerous accolades including 37 Golden Guitars, 4 ARIAs, 3 APRA Song of the Year awards, 9 Deadlys (Australian Indigenous Artist Awards), 4 CMAA Entertainer of the Year awards plus 2 NIMAs (National Indigenous Music Awards).

After spending the majority of 2020 writing and recoding at home, Troy will once again hit the road in 2021 with a run of dates, including Bluesfest Byron Bay, Gympie Music Muster, Deni Ute Muster and Savannah in the Round. For more information and tickets visit https://troycassardaley.com.au/touring/ . up to become the largest solo tour he has ever undertaken. Adam will perform over 40 shows across NSW, ACT, VIC, QLD and SA from February to September 2021.

Tim McGraw & Tyler Hubbard – Undivided

When friends talk music and those friends happen to be two music icons – three-time Grammy® winner and CMA Entertainer of the Year Tim McGraw and myriad American Music Award, Academy of Country Music and CMA Award winner of superstar duo Florida Georgia Line Tyler Hubbard – the result is “Undivided.” The upbeat and heartfelt collaboration arrives with an official behind-the-scenes music video of the two friends in the studio. The song will be included on the Deluxe version of McGraw’s #1 album Here On Earth , out later this spring on Big Machine Records.

Co-written by Hubbard & Chris Loocke, “Undivided” came out of Hubbard’s time spent soul-searching on his bus while waiting out a positive COVID-19 quarantine. In that space, examining his own ability to judge too quickly, he considered the values he was raised with and looked to his faith for guidance and inspiration. But rather than writing a somber song, the process brought him to a place of hope, and he dug into his roots for a song that sparkled with a beat and positivity.

“Music gives us hope and brings us together in a way nothing else can. This doesn’t mean we don’t have work to do. Quite the opposite,” McGraw explains. “I loved the positivity of this song and that it called me to check myself and to remember that love is bigger. It’s why I knew this song had to be my next single with Tyler as soon as he sent it to me.”

“I knew immediately when I finished it, I had to text it to Tim. He has a way of communicating with the world that is unique in music,” Hubbard said of the feel-good song and collaboration. “For him to want to perform with me was an amazing feeling. The song is about coming together, and that’s exactly what we did.”

Produced by Corey Crowder, Hubbard, McGraw and Byron Gallimore, the banjo and acoustic guitar driven track creates a perfect space for McGraw’s gift as a voice of not just wisdom, but living and learning, to pair with Hubbard’s wide-open rural truths and phased vocals.

I think it’s time to come together
You and I can make a change
Maybe we can make a difference
Make the world a better place
Look around and love somebody
We’ve been hateful long enough
Let the good Lord reunite us
‘Til this country that we love’s

Adam Harvey – All For Rum

Sony Music Entertainment Australia will release SONGS FROM HIGHWAY ONE, Adam Harvey’s new studio album on Friday, February 19. Inspired by his years touring around the beautiful country he calls home, the album is the multiple ARIA Award nominee and 8 time Golden Guitar winner’s fifteenth studio album and his first self-produced.
Alongside the album announcement, Adam has also released the single and video for ‘All For Rum’. Filmed at the iconic site of “sweetest nectar in the world” in Bundaberg, Adam puts a cheeky spin on the classic quote “all for one and one for all”.
The track joins already released singles, ‘Ramblin’ Fever’, featuring Lee Kernaghan, and the album’s opener ‘Highway Number One’ which quickly climbed to #1 on the iTunes chart after it’s release in March this year. Originally a Merle Haggard tune, ‘Ramblin’ Fever’ saw Adam and Lee earn a Tamworth Golden Guitar nomination for Vocal Collaboration of the Year (2021).
To write and record his fifteenth studio album, he brought in good friends, collaborators and co-writers such as Graeme Connors and Colin Buchanan. There’s a reunion with Beccy Cole, Darren Coggan and Felicity Urquhart. With the blessing of Joy McKean, the late Slim Dusty makes an appearance on Adam’s version of ‘Angel Of Goulburn Hill’.
In a nutshell SONGS FROM HIGHWAY ONE is about adventure, freedom and looking forward while, with a writer’s taste for nostalgia, taking the time to look through the rear-view mirror of life as well. Recorded at The Music Cellar on the NSW Central Coast with engineer Jeff McCormack, Adam relished the role of producer on the project. “I’ve had all sorts of different producers through the years,” he recalls, “and I just thought, ‘Why don’t I have a crack at it myself?’ It’s another challenge and a whole lot more work than I actually expected. I learnt a hell of a lot too.”
In 2021 Adam will return to his love for being on the road, embarking on the Highway One Tour. Beginning in February 2021, Adam has put together a schedule of tour dates that add up to become the largest solo tour he has ever undertaken. Adam will perform over 40 shows across NSW, ACT, VIC, QLD and SA from February to September 2021.
