On The Verge: 5 New Country Releases

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

1. "Last Rodeo" by Parker Graye

Graye takes listeners on quite the journey with her latest release. The last rodeo is a metaphor for how hard someone will hold on to a love that's been long gone. Her vocals soar through the entanglement of emotions that come with figuring out when to let go. The style of the song combines the classic, somber country with a fresh take.

2. "Hay Is For Horses" by The Reklaws

The Canadian duo seems to strike again with this laid-back song. It's about how easy it is to fall in love, a sweet edition to today's music. With lyrics like, "Hay is for horses, kisses are for porches, seasides for sand, tequila is for dancing," it is hard not to adore this track.

3. A Tale Of Seven Cities by Raleigh Keegan

Keegan released his new album over the weekend after teasing a bit of the music for the past few months. The singer seems to have come into his own as he had a hand in writing and producing the project. A stand-out track is "Waking Up In Nashville" which is worth listening to.
