It's a big month of new country music releases in March 2013, with seven albums and counting planned for the month leading up to the ACM Awards. The most-anticipated release may be from Blake Shelton, but it'd be a mistake to overlook new projects by Thompson Square, Ashley Monroe and Luke Bryan

Bryan will release another spring break-themed EP on March 5, the same day Monroe releases her first solo album since joining the Pistol Annies. Other projects to look to forward to include Kacey Musgraves' debut album and a new album from 'I Ain't Your Mama' singer Maggie Rose.

March 5
