Last week totally got away from me, so I figured I would get a jump on this week's playlist. It features a track from Ags Connolly's fabulous sophomore release as well as Nikki Lane's "Jackpot" from her upcoming album. In honor of seeing Will Hoge last week and Whiskey Myers this week, there's a song on here form each of them as well. If there's someone you like and think should make next week's list, let me know!

One of TDC's favorites, Jeff Crosby, released a new song, "Keep Me Young," via his Bandcamp page today.
He had this to say about the song (via Bandcamp), "Wrote this song driving around LA working for a studio delivering rental gear. Someone spray painted "find something to love and let it kill you" on a concrete wall on Beverly blvd. Thought it was a fitting opening line for a song. Finished the 2nd verse in McCall, ID visiting this beach downtown where I used to hang out with my girlfriend and get stoned after school. ahhhhh those were the days. While I was on a solo tour last year in England I tracked this song at Clockwork Owl Studios in Brighton with Tim Bidwell producing and engineering. Really loved the studio and couldnt be happier with how it came out. Seems fitting to release it now turning 30 and all this week. Hope you enjoy" - JC

January 13, 2017 (Nashville, TN) -- Nashville's The New Respects has returned with a new single, "Money," releasing the track today at all digital music services.
“'Money' was written while we were in college, when we didn’t have much,” reflects the band's bassist Alexis Fitzgerald. “The chorus says 'life ain’t about money,' and that’s true; we found happiness at a time when money was tight, and we wanted to share that sentiment with our fans. Our producer, Jeremy Lutito, helped us create a fun chorus and rhythm that would allow our audience to let loose and enjoy life in the moment."
