Brandy Clark, ‘Stripes’ – ToC Critic’s Pick [Listen]

Brandy Clark’s ‘Stripes’ is country music’s formal introduction to the woman behind many of the edgiest songs of the last two years. Those who like their country women to sound rooted in tradition and a little (OK, a lot) unpredictable will love this woman’s anthem.

Meghan Linsey, ‘Counting Stars’ – ToC Critic’s Pick [Listen]

As a solo artist, Meghan Linsey is difficult to label. Her countrified version of OneRepublic’s ‘Counting Stars’ is country like duo the Civil Wars is country. Technically, it’s true. But the song -- and yes, this is an overused phrase -- is like nothing else on country radio.

Natalie Stovall and the Drive, ‘Baby Come on With It’ – ToC Critic’s Pick [Listen]

Move over, boys! Make some space for Natalie Stovall in that clearing that marks the dirt road's end. 'Baby Come on With It' by Stovall and the Drive cooks at a temperature the so-called Bro-Country bands of 2013 may be afraid to experiment with.

Parmalee, ‘Close Your Eyes’ [Listen]

Parmalee’s new single ‘Close Your Eyes’ is too lighthearted to be called a power ballad, but the mid-tempo country love song does serve as another big vocal showcase for singer Matt Thomas. The band’s harmonies are also highlighted on this third single from ‘Feels Like Carolina.’

Miranda Lambert, ‘Automatic’ [Listen]

Miranda Lambert does nostalgia as well as she does crazy. Her new single ‘Automatic’ is a yearning look back at a time before computers, cell phones and 800 channels on TV. With familiar and original references, the singer introduces a softer tone for her fifth studio album.

Lee Brice, ‘I Don’t Dance’ [Listen]

Lee Brice’s new single ‘I Don’t Dance’ feels like a natural progression of this singer-songwriter’s career. It’s personal, like almost every song on the ‘Hard 2 Love’ album, but also powerful and experimental like Brice's early recordings. The power is provided in production, however -- a key difference between this ballad and others that relied solely on his vocal abilities.
