Four of the Top 5 songs on the April 2016 Top 40 Country Songs list raced there in just a few months. It took less than three months for our No. 1 song to hit the top, and several behind it leap-frogged hits from more established artists to become amongst the most sought-after songs in country.
Charles Kelley’s “Lonely Girl” was written by “Crash and Burn” writers Chris Stapleton and Jesse Frasure, and one would bet it was written on the same day. Kelley’s follow-up to the Grammy-nominated “The Driver” is a throwback recorded with modern soul.
Charles Kelley is following his successful debut solo single, “The Driver,” with another bombshell: “Lonely Girl,” written by none other than country’s newest legend-in-the-making, Chris Stapleton, along with Jesse Frasure.
Carrie Underwood’s "Church Bells" tastes like sweet revenge and adds to her growing body count of no good men. The singer’s fictional story of a poor girl named Jenny quickly takes a dark turn, and the singer celebrates her antagonist’s inevitable fate.
Jana Kramer's “Said No One Ever” is a progressive country-rocker that is sure to appeal to country’s younger audience. The clever lyric combines with Kramer’s flirty delivery to create three minutes of sound you’ll have a hard time forgetting.
Songs like Craig Campbell’s “Outskirts of Heaven” refocus a country genre that’s easily distracted. The singer’s picture of heaven is familiar and satisfying. His vocal performance is amongst the best of his career.
Kenny Chesney says “Noise” is his first song with real social importance, and the timing couldn’t be better. Without being political, he takes on politics. Without sounding like a luddite, he challenges technology. Without smelling curmudgeonly, he recalls how things once were.
