Top Country Releases, March 2014
by Nick Murray | March 8, 2014
The past month in country music has been uneventful, offering only a few new albums and a batch of singles that mostly look forward to spring and summer. Then again, those new releases did have their moments: Hurray for the Riff Raff's Small Town Heroes and Lydia Loveless' Somewhere Else pick up where Rosanne Cash's January release, The River & the Thread, left off, continuing a remarkable run of alt country albums to start the year; and Dierks Bentley's Riser is thus far the best mainstream release of 2014. Here, we collect our favorite tracks from all of the above, then finish with new entries in Billboard's Top 20 singles chart.
