Country Roundup, April 2011
Is it us, or has there been a serious lack of new country music in recent months? Things are finally moving in the right direction, though, and we've got the lowdown on all the new country releases, be they albums or singles.
This week alone, we have new albums from the graceful Emmylou Harris, the rough-and-tumble Steve Earle and a leak of the new Colt Ford album, Every Chance I Get. In the past few weeks, there has been a handful of really exciting singles that radio has gone crazy for: it's no surprise to us that Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and Ashton Shepherd currently have the fastest-rising singles of their careers.
