30 More New-ish Country Songs That You Need To Be Listening To Right Now

A group of people

2022 is off to a hot start with music releases, and it only seems to be getting better.

Only five months into the year, there have already been tons of good albums, EPs, and singles released for our enjoyment.

New albums by 49 Winchester, Zach Bryan, and Kaitlin Butts, in my opinion, have separated themselves as the top three of the year thus far. But Muscadine Bloodline, Miranda Lambert, William Clark Green, Molly Tuttle, and many more are close behind.

There is still plenty of firepower left in this year’s tank, though, as Whiskey Myers, Arlo McKinley, American Aquarium, Caamp, and more artists have begun releasing singles for their upcoming albums.

No matter how you look at it, we are in the midst of a great year for music. If you haven’t been able to keep up with New Music Fridays and all of the recent releases, here are 30 of the best songs that have been released over the past few months.
