Happy Monday! Back at it with another quick playlist to get your week started!

Luke Combs third studio album Growin’ Up dropped earlier this summer in June, and I had a few instant favorites. This one definitely stands out, and as a traveler, I enjoyed the visuals it brings to mind during that drive that feels like it’s in the middle of nowhere.

Lindsay Ell perfectly encapsulates that feeling of not wanting to rush into love but also feeling far behind others. (She also appears on our Stars & Guitars Every Artist Ever list today!) This song serves as a reminder that there is never a timeline that we have to fit into and wherever we are in life right now is perfect all on it’s own.

And Lainey Wilson recently gave us another song from her upcoming album titled Bell Bottom Country. “Watermelon Moonshine” reminds me a lot of Deana Carter’s “Strawberry Wine” and the adventures of first loves.

  • Luke Combs - Middle of Somewhere

  • Lindsay Ell - Right On Time

  • Lainey Wilson - Watermelon Moonshine
