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.

4. "Heart You Can't Break" by Madeline Edwards

This track is different from other current material from the very first note. It's got an '80s beat that is unshakably catchy, and the lyrics are riddled with empowerment. Edwards sings about not being so easily let down by someone who is trying to break her heart, and it sounds very believable.

5. "Left Of Center" by Tyler Dial

The singer-songwriter delivered a subdued song that fits just right for his voice. The rack is reflective of the long and bumpy road to reaching your dreams. The lyrics are about embracing someone's differences as they work hard to find out who they are. "You can call me left of center, but last time I checked, that's right where the heart is."
