10 Songs You May Have Missed in 2021

2021 was an incredible year for country music. Major artists released new singles and albums, live music returned, and new artists started their careers. With all of that going on, it can be hard to keep up with all of the new music coming out of Nashville. In no particular order, here are ten songs you may have missed in 2021.

1. Stop Draggin’ Your Boots by Danielle Bradbery

“Stop Draggin’ Your Boots” was the third track released from Bradbery’s next project and her first new release of 2021. This song brings out the sassy and fiery side of Bradbery, which is a side that fans may not have seen before. Bradbery tells her man to “stop draggin’ his boots” in their relationship. She has had it with his lack of commitment to their relationship. She continues to shine vocally and show off a new confidence level in this song. This song may be hard to miss coming into the new year. It was recently added to Spotify’s Hot Country playlist. Here’s to a hopeful radio release and a new album in 2022.

2. “All American” by Mickey Guyton

Mickey Guyton has had a whirlwind year in 2021. She released her long-awaited debut album Remember Her Name in September, featuring songs such as “All American,” “Black Like Me,” and “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?”. “All American” has been featured in Guyton’s multiple high-profile TV performances including her performance at the 2021 American Music Awards. This song reminds Guyton’s listeners and her critics that we are more alike than we think we are. “Ain’t we all / ain’t we all American?” Hopefully, fans will be seeing and hearing more of Guyton in 2022.

3. “Miles” by Tiera ft. BRELAND

“Miles” by Tiera and Breland is one of the best collaborations of 2021. Tiera and Breland team up to give fans their take on the country genre. Tiera’s vocal delivery is pop R&B inspired topped off with a southern twang as Breland raps and harmonizes with Tiera on the last chorus. The instrumental of the track is a very polished pop-country production that could easily compete with anything released to country radio. Fans will surely be hearing more from both artists next year as Tiera signed with The Valory Music Co. over the summer, and Breland has been teasing new music on his social media pro
