1. Trisha Yearwood – Workin’ On Whiskey
Wow. Trisha Yearwood released her version of “Workin’ On Whiskey” with background vocals from none other than Kelly Clarkson. Canadian country fans will recognize the song written, and previously recorded, by Jessica Mitchell.
“This song is about the unfortunate realization that people get to sometimes where a relationship just isn’t what you thought it would be. That can be hard and sad and frustrating, but I think this song reminds you that it’s also important not to forget you loved that person at one time – and you shouldn’t be apologetic for loving that person. Like the song says, forever slips away from you sometimes. Some relationships just aren’t in the cards, but you can’t be sorry for falling in love.” – Old Dominion via Instagram
As the first artist signed to Big Loud Records’ new female-focused label, Songs & Daughters, Madison Kozak is certainly one to watch. The Canadian-born singer/songwriter will have you booking a trip back home with her new song “First Last Name”.
