Kelsea Ballerini’s new remix of “hole in the bottle” with Shania Twain

Kelsea Ballerini’s new single is that much sweeter with country pop legend, Shania Twain on board! I mean, wine not?! The duo take Kelsea’s “hole in the bottle” and add a little more flair, creating a whole new song to drink (or dance) to!

On their remix, Shania said of her duet partner, “She’s very serious about her writing, but she really gets the balance between relatability and not getting all wrapped up in the seriousness, but … she was directing me all the way. It was really, really cute … She’s actually a really good director, and she knows what she wants, and I really respected that.”

Abigail Neilson’s new single “This Is Me Leaving”

On her phenomenal new single, Abigail says, “This Is Me Leaving,” is a song I wrote when I finally decided to let go of a person I had truly cared for and loved. As a writer, I write about all of my personal experiences. This time around, I was dealing with moving on after my heart had been broken. When writing it, I wanted this song to be memorable, so I knew the hook had to be strong. I also wanted it to be relatable, so if anyone else was listening to it they could really connect to the song. “This Is Me Leaving,” is such a powerful statement, and when I wrote it I felt like I was finally myself again and could move on.”

Olivia Harms’ new single and music video “Hey There Cowboy”

Olivia Harms’ new single has everything we need. Cowboys, a classic west tune and a killer release video! Daughter of classic cowgirl singer, Joni Harms, Olivia is forging her own country music path. She is born and bred western and her music reflects her heritage. 

The video, produced by COWGIRL 30 Under 30 Alumni, Mcfarland Productions, features a classic dive bar that we can all relate to. There is nothing quite as freeing as a cowboy and a couple drinks. Cheers to “Hey There Cowboy!”

Kelsey Waldon’s new cover “They’ll Never Keep Us Down”

There is nothing quite like a country song ranting against the man. In Kelsey Waldon’s new cover of Hazel Dickens’ pro-union song, we can not help but stand up and cheer along next to them. On her distinct sound, the Kentucky native said, “I want to work towards a new southern strategy because my South is a South for all people.”
