Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean’s new single “If I Didn’t Love You”

Both sides of this former relationship are having trouble moving on — because each still loves the other. “If I didn’t love you, I’d be good by now. I’d better than barely gettin’ by somehow,” Aldean and Underwood sing in harmony in the chorus. “Yeah, it would be easy not to miss you. Wonder about who’s with you. Turn the want-to off whenever I want to. If I didn’t love you.”

Brandi Carlile’s new single “Right on Time”

Of her new single and upcoming album, she says “I never imagined that I’d feel so exposed and weird as an artist without the armor of a costume, the thrill of an applause and the platform of the sacred stage. Despite all this, the songs flowed through—pure and unperformed, loud and proud, joyful and mournful. Written in my barn during a time of deep and personal reckoning. There’s plenty reflection…but mostly it’s a celebration.”

Jo Smith’s new single “Poor Lil Heart”

“Poor Lil Heart is a late summer barn burner that is all about blowing off steam and making the best of a broken heart. There was so much energy in the room when my co-writers and I wrote this song, we decided to keep the beginning of the original work tape to kick off the master recording. It’s a fresh but undeniably traditional country uptempo that is perfect for a social media dance clip, or a post-heartbreak road trip,” Jo says of her new single.

Rachel McIntyre Smith’s new single “Blue Hawaii”

Of her inspiration, Rachel says, “When I was creating “Blue Hawaii” I wanted it to feel like the soundtrack to a fun beach vacation with your best friend. Lighthearted and fun. The song to perfectly accompany a beach sunset while you’re sipping on a Piña Colada or Blue Hawaiian. I think we were able to capture that- and I hope others think so too.”

Chelsea Sulkey’s new single “On Fire”

Of her debut single, Chelsea says, “When I decided to write this song I knew exactly what I wanted to say, I just didn’t know how to say it. I went to my co-writer, Kolby Oakley, with the idea and he already saw my vision. I wanted an empowering song. Something that either gender could relate to.” She wants to remind everyone to not let anyone put out the fire inside of them, and instead use the hurt to ignite the flames even more.
