It’s the local artists debut single “Boot Fits.” In talking about the song, Henline shared,“My first single, “Boot Fits,” is truly my personality in a nutshell. I was raised under the motto that you don’t have to change who you are to fit anyone else’s version of you, and that’s exactly what the lyrics of this song talk about. I grew up listening to everything from Elvis to Patty Loveless, James Taylor to Linda Ronstadt and so much more – and all of those inspirations are threaded through my music in different ways.”

Colin Stough starts the new year off with a powerful message of resilience, as he offers up a fresh rendition of one of his biggest hits with “I Still Talk To Jesus (Acoustic).

.”A Country-Rock ballad of unshakable hope, “I Still Talk To Jesus” was originally part of Stough’s standout time on ABC’s American Idol in 2022. Eventually finishing third on Season 21, Stough released the aching anthem alongside his fellow Top 5 finalists, showing fans a moving example of inner toughness – and one heart’s weary-yet-determined refusal to give up on love.

Randall King’s 18-track sophomore album Into The Neon – due Jan. 26 via Warner Music Nashville – takes listeners inside one man’s story of finding love and losing it, with songs made for slow dancing under the starry night sky or two-stepping at a local honky tonk. With the latest taste of new music off the upcoming project, “Coulda Been Love,”out today, King grapples with regret over the girl that got away and love that could have been.
