As every Friday passes, there are numerous songs that come out from independent country artists whose songs are well-written, beautiful, or simply fun. We’ve compiled a list of songs that were released last week by independent acts that deserve much love and attention. Who knows, you might find your next favorite song.


1. For My Own Good by Sarahbeth Taite

This debut project for the singer deserves to be heard. Taite's effortless vocals fuel every emotion she sings about. It's refreshing to see such vulnerability in a collection of songs. A stand-out track from the EP "Too Good" is what a lot of young women need to hear. "I'm too good to you for my own good, i'm staying longer than i should," are lyrics that remind someone that they should focus on themselves and what is good for them.


2. "Rather Be Crazy" by Julia Cole

Cole released a track that exudes the feelings of pain and hurt. "I'd rather be crazy than alone tonight," sings Cole. The song is about acting out because of deep loneliness. It's easy to turn to anger and frustration when feeling sad, so this song is undeniably relatable.


3. "More Than A Maybe" by Juna N Joey

The moment this song begins it's as if you're driving down the road with the windows down. The duo sing about young love and how hopeful it can feel. Nothing quite beats the feeling of anticipation for someone you want to spend time with.


4. "Come On Down" by Josiah Siska

Siska's voice is strong an impactful from the first line. His deep vocal tones echoes the style of classic country. The track is up-tempo and sparks the feeling that someone is ready for a good time. "Come on down where the party is," sings Siska. The song adds a different flavor to the usual Friday releases.
