Sarah Burke here, and I’m looking at the week that was in country music, including the latest SiriusXM Most Wanted Countdown, new music from Zac Brown Band, Little Big Town news and more!
We’ll be releasing this list of the hottest songs in Canadian Country music every week, we’ll keep you posted on our socials:
Hear Zac Brown Band’s New Song “Roots”
What hasn’t Zac Brown Band tried in the last few years? From experimenting with pop & EDM to collaborations with Chris Cornell, the band returns to their roots with a new song. The video captures their growth as a band from early footage to playing arenas and winning a Grammy. Their follow-up to 2015’s Jekyll & Hyde will be titled Welcome Home recorded in Nashville with the infamous Dave Cobb. The album is out May 12th with a monster tour to follow beginning with back-to-back nights in Atlanta.
Brothers Osborne Take on Trump in New Video
Brothers Osborne take on Trump with bold political commentary and a tribute to the 1991 film Point Break in their new video “It Ain’t My Fault.”
You won’t see much of the Osborne brothers past the opening, in their role as pawn shop managers (homage to their debut 2016 album). They’re robbed by a bunch of American Presidents…or bandits sporting masks of their faces. This classic cops-and-robbers chase somehow sees the masked-Obama escape on a jet-ski and Hilary Clinton rescuing masked-Bill on a motorcycle. You’ll love where the masked-Trump ends up:
Little Big Town Serenades Sesame Street
A Stanley Cup playoff game and Sesame Street all in one week…
Little Big Town performed “I Is For Instruments” with Elmo, Grover, Abby Cadabby & Cookie Monster. Check out Cookie’s sax solo here:
They play CMA Music Festival coming up June 11th and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium for a residency in support of their new album The Breaker through this fall.
