  3. This is great. Thanks. I'm looking forward to the new album from Brandi Clark. 12 Stories was so great.

  6. I love some of the names I am seeing on here. Clay Walker and Gary Allan's leadoff singles are addictive and I can't wait to see what they have coming, especially with Clay, as it's been nearly 6 years since his last album. I had a feeling the Court Yard Hounds would be on their way to releasing something new right about now. Both of their voices are so soothing. I remember Chely Wright began a Kickstarter campaign about 2 years ago to get this new album going. Another long overdue release. Ditto for Rick Trevino.

    What intrigues me the most is Lila McCann's EP and what will be officially released on it. Over the years, she has had numerous non-album cuts to enjoy on sites like Myspace, from "Ain't It Great To Be a Woman" to "Go Easy On Me." Given especially that Myspace's music service is no longer reliable, I'd love to see these get an official release, but I also can't wait to see what else she has in store...I just wish Jessica Andrews was on this list.

  7. Brandy Clark ‘Big Day In A Small Town’ – Although technically outside of Q1, the news of a much-anticipated follow-up to the celebrated ’12 Stories’ is just too much to bear (April 1) (from FTCR)

  8. Can't Wait for Marie Osmonds new CD "Music is Medicine! Love ya Marie.

  9. Marie's CD Marie's CD will be coming out in march. Check out you tube. I think there is one song she sings. her nephew is a very good singer as well his name is David Osmond. The CD will be country contemporary country and a duet with Marty Roe Of Diamond Rio. Go Marie you are so beautiful as always.

  10. Josh Turner's fans have been waiting it seems like forever for his next album. Hopefully it will be released soon!
