Country music is one of those genres where storytelling is valued above all else. If you can tell a story people want to hear with your music, and you have the voice to back it up, you can make it. And these five artists that we’re talking about today are going to be names you’re going to be hearing everywhere all over the country scene before you know it, mark our words!
Warren Zeiders is Warner Records’ newest artist, thanks to the success of a song we are absolutely obsessed with, ‘Ride The Lightning.’ Warren has all the tools to storm onto the country music scene and be right up there with the best of them. If you need further proof that he’ll be all over the radio in the near future, just check out Warren’s newest track, ‘Burn It Down.’
We completely fell in love with Madeline Merlo after finding her on TikTok! She has this incredible relationship with her pen that continues to blow us away with every song she teases. While we’re patiently awaiting ‘Girl Where He Grew Up,’ we will be streaming ‘It Didn’t’ on a loop! We have a feeling Madeline Merlo is about to blow up, so now is the time to jump on board!
Morgan Wade is incredible. That’s putting it lightly! Her album, Reckless, is a masterclass in what it means to be a country artist. She’s nailed down that storytelling trope that the genre is famous for and has done so beautifully. Our favorite tracks that we’d recommend to anyone are ‘Run’ and ‘Suspicious Minds.’
Yes, Mason Ramsey is in the midst of a major comeback! And we couldn’t be more pumped! Helping genuinely talented people blow up is one of the things the internet does that we love the most, and Mason Ramsey is such an excellent example of that. He had a whirlwind of a few years after the Walmart video went viral, and now going to school and working on TikTok has blown him up all over again. After diving into the music he’s got out so far, we are sure this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Mason Ramsey!
Remember the feeling you got the first time you heard Taylor Swift’s sophomore album, Fearless? That feeling is what we got when we heard ‘Hate This Hometown’ by Erin Kinsey. She just has it. The songwriting ability, the true love for the genre, and the voice – it’s a recipe for success. Erin is an artist to watch, that much is clear.
