Fridays are always a great day for music lovers as not only does it mark the last workday for many in the week but it’s also the day where most artists release new music. Here is a look at some of the releases out the week of September 6:
Highwomen Redesigning Country Music
Country music’s newest power group featuring Brandi Carlile, Marren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby are flipping the country music narrative with their new album. The women sing about multiple topics considered off limits or never sung before in this debut disk. The stand out track “If She Ever Leaves Me” which I think might be the first song from a lesbian’s perspective in country music. The women deliver powerful track-after-track which can only leave fans hoping that they will keep going after their success after the first album.
John Mayer Gets Carried Away
Mayer has had a busy year, touring for a large part of 2019 as part of Dead & Company and his own tour. On Friday the Grammy Award-winning artist released his new song “Carry Me Away.” The singer released a lyric video along with the new track which has a cameo from one of his best friends – his dog.
