Listen to Cody Johnson’s New Motown-Inspired Single, “Nothin’ On You”

Even More Music News - 7 hours 6 min ago

After scoring his most successful single on the country charts with “On My Way to You” (No. 11), Cody Johnson will ship “Nothin’ On You” to country radio on July 22. Penned by Barrett Baber and Trent Willmon, the new tune is featured on Cody’s 2019 album, Ain’t Nothin’ to It, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in January.

“It’s the most unique song I’ve ever had the chance to record,” says Cody. “It’s very Motown, which is a piece of my musical heritage that I haven’t really gotten to touch on—that bluesy, kinda sexy, soulful thing.”

Thomas Rhett Scores 13th No. 1 Single With “Look What God Gave Her”

Even More Music News - 9 hours 12 min ago

One week after his new album, Center Point Road, debuted at No. 1 on both the all-genre Billboard 200 chart and Billboard Top Country Albums chart, Thomas Rhett has scored his 13th No. 1 single with “Look What God Gave Her,” which is No. 1 on both the Mediabase chart and Billboard Country Airplay chart.

Penned by Thomas Rhett, Rhett Akins, Julian Bunetta, John Ryan, Jacob Kasher and Ammar Malik, “Look What God Gave Her” reached No. 1 after only 17 weeks on the charts. The tune is TR’s seventh consecutive No. 1 song.

“I think I played this song 2,000 times in a month after we first wrote it,” says Thomas Rhett. “It makes me want to dance. It makes me want to move. And to me, the song really is a celebration of how awesome my wife is. I know I’ve done that in the past, but I’ve never really done it in an uptempo way. I was really glad we were able to nail this one. My wife is so beautiful, but at the same time she’s inwardly beautiful, she’s funny, she’s kind, she’s the best mom I know . . . and she’s hilarious. It’s really just about thanking God for the human being He made, and singing it in a fun way.”

“Look What God Gave Her” is the lead single from Center Point Road, a 16-song album that takes its name from the street in his Tennessee hometown that shaped much of his life experiences. TR co-penned every track on the album, which also features a who’s who of top songwriters, including Shane McAnally, Ashley Gorley, Jesse Frasure, Karen Fairchild and more. In addition, the album features a number of collaborations with other artists, including Kelsea Ballerini (“Center Point Road”), Little Big Town (“Don’t Threaten Me With a Good Time”) and Jon Pardi (“Beer Can’t Fix”).

Tim McGraw’s Creative Process? “I’m Always Watching People Trying to Figure Out Their Story”

In addition to his work in the aforementioned genres of music and writing, Tim has carved out a respectable career as an actor over the last 15 years. The Louisiana native has co-starred in a number of mainstream flicks, including Friday Night Lights, Four Christmases, Country Strong, The Blind Side and more.

The accomplished singer, author and actor recently sat down with Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown to chat about his multi-medium creative process, including how he prepares for his various acting roles.

“You know, if we’re at a restaurant or if I’m walking around with my daughters and they’re shopping and I find a bench to sit on, I’m always watching people trying to figure out their story or trying to make up a scenario that’s going on,” says Tim. “I think that’s part of the creative process, and I think that also helps me as an artist, helps me as an actor, is to put those scenarios together and sort of create this world that you see.”

Tim is on the road this summer with more than 15 tour dates, including stops in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Phoenix and more.

Watch Luke Bryan Complete a Pass to Super Bowl Champ Rob Gronkowski During “Sunset Repeat Tour” in Boston

Even More Music News - 13 hours 12 min ago

Luke Bryan kicked off the summer season with his Sunset Repeat Tour at Boston’s Gillette Stadium on June 21.

In addition to playing his hits for the sold-out crowd, Luke created a halftime experience of his own by inviting recently retired All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots to join him onstage.

The crowd treated Gronk to a loud ovation, and Luke, with football in hand, took the opportunity to send the receiver on a fade route. After overthrowing Gronk on his first attempt, Luke got the ball back from a crowd member—after some pleading—and completed a 15-yard throw to the three-time Super Bowl champ.

“I can now say I completed a pass to Gronk in Gillette Stadium,” Luke said. “How cool is that?”

Watch the clip below, via Twitter feed @_Karyn_.
