Brantley Gilbert – One Hell of An Amen

The bad boy of country music, Brantley Gilbert will soon be heading back to the UK to perform at C2C for the second time. He’s without a doubt one of the biggest stars in country music right now and he’s had huge success with his second album Just As I Am. New single One Hell of An Amen is the third cut from the record and it’s an emotive ballad that gets better with every listen.

Canaan Smith is a country star we’ll be keeping an eye on in 2015. It was recently announced that he would be supporting Dierks Bentley on his forthcoming US tour along with Kip Moore and Maddie & Tae. Love You Like That is his second single and has so far peaked at 28 on the US Country Chart. Recently Canaan a short video featuring footage of him playing the song live.

Carrie Underwood – Little Toy Guns

One of the most successful American Idol winners ever, Carrie Underwood is still going from strength-to-strength. Before Christmas she released her first Greatest Hits collection and lead single Something In The Water scored the singer her 12th US Country Chart number one. Now she’s released the video for her next single Little Toy Guns which carries a weighty message that should ensure another huge hit.

Chris Young – Lonely Eyes

Lonely Eyes is the third single from Chris’ critically-acclaimed fourth studio album A.M. It follows hits Aw Naw and Who I Am With You and is on the cusp of scoring him another Top 10 smash on the US Country chart. Who can resist that deep husky country drawl?

Thomas Rhett – When I Was Your Man

Thomas Rhett is a rising star and in 2014 he scored his third consecutive US Country Chart Top 10 hit with Make Me Wanna. That single as the fifth to be taken from his debut album It Goes Like This. Showing his versatility, Thomas has released his cover of the Bruno Mars hit When I Was Your Man and the result is pretty surprising.
