Featured Artist: Billy Joe Shaver & Willie Nelson
We've got a hefty selection of brand new bangers that have been released on our Best New Country 2022 playlist.
There's nothing like a New Music Friday. Every week we wait patiently for that fresh batch of new tunes from our favourite superstars and fast-rising acts. Whether it's Miranda Lambert or Ashley McBryde, BRELAND or Eric Church, we all want to dig in and get our dose of brand new music.
This week, our featured artists on Best New Country are Lucinda Williams and Willie Nelson, with 'Live Forever'.
It's their take on a Billy Joe Shaver classic, ahead of the forthcoming release of Live Forever: A Tribute to Billy Joe Shaver. The record will star a whole batch of artists and songwriters taking their cut at one of the greatest songwriting catalogs of all time, including George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Nathaniel Rateliff, Ryan Bingham and Nikki Lane, Steve Earle, Edie Brickell, Rodney Crowell, Margo Price (her track also includes Joshua Hedley), Allison Russell, and Amanda Shires.
The Texas singer-songwriter who died on October 28th, 2020 was an integral member of the Outlaw Country movement. A favorite among music legends, Johnny Cash once called Shaver “my favorite songwriter,” while Willie Nelson declared, “BillyJoe is definitely the best writer in Texas.”
Alongside Lucinda and Willie, we've got some ace new country songs from Allison Russel and Brandi Carlile, Charley Crockett, Maren Morris, Kane Brown, Eric Church and more.
With Holler's Best New Country playlist, you can listen to them all! BNC contains all of the best new country, Americana and roots tunes we're spinnin' right here at Holler HQ.
