Enduring a broken heart, losing loved ones, and dealing with some not-so-glamorous days on the job is all a part of the rollercoaster that is the journey called life. These moments may cause you to feel like nothing good is ahead, but sometimes, we just need a good tune to remind us of the strength we carry. This new list of songs does just that with empowering narratives and boasting melodies. 

Listeners are hearing from a fresh batch of rising artists like Tucker Beathard, Neon Union and Rachel Wammack, as they’ve recently dropped new music. 

From lighthearted honesty to unfiltered breakups and straight-up country anthems, Country Now is sharing its brand-new list of stand-out tracks that has something for everyone’s playlist.

Here are seven songs you need to hear right now.

Jordan Davis – “Part Of It”

Jordan Davis continues his string of sentimental narratives with his newest release, “Part Of It.” Co-written by Davis with his brother Jacob Davis along with Jordan Walker and Matt McKinney, this song depicts the good and the bad that come with the reality of life. That includes heartbreaks, losing loved ones, and chasing dreams. As Davis sings in the latest preview of songs from his next album, “you live and learn and good ones go.”  

“You know, it’s not far off of ‘Buy Dirt,’” Davis told Country Now. “I think one of the things that ‘Buy Dirt’ did for me, not just professionally, obviously it’s garnered a lot of attention and it’s been a huge blessing, but I think personally and as a songwriter, it kind of helped me evolve into, you know, what I think people want to hear. I always thought it was kind of hits and up-tempo stuff, to where now I think it’s just writing songs from the heart and being honest, and ‘Part Of It’ is another one of those songs.”

Amanda Jordan – “Break Your Heart”

In her latest release, Nashville newcomer Amanda Jordan promises not to “Break Your Heart.” As she sings the upbeat plea co-written by the talented Kelsea Ballerini, Nicolle Galyon, and Jimmy Robbins, Jordan wears her heart on her sleeve with true elegance. Despite her seemingly impulsive personality and unapologetic honesty, the Smith Falls, Canada native claims to treat love with nothing but care. 

“I instantly fell in love with the song on the first listen and completely connected with the lyrics,” Jordan shared. “I can be a little messy and reckless at times, but one thing is certain; I am not going to hurt someone I love. I would never want to break their heart.”

Rachel Wammack – “Girl’s Gotta Know”

After teasing clips of her newest song and seeing a high demand for the full version, Rachel Wammack finally unveiled “Girl’s Gotta Know.”  Written by Wammack alongside Jim McCormick, the song follows the Alabama native’s personal track, “Like Me,” which was released this summer. This song encourages those in a relationship to ask their partner all the right questions before things get too serious. For example, before introducing them to your family, it’s important to know, “Do you hug your momma / Do you like dogs /. Do you love Jesus?”

Wammack shared, “This song is for anyone who is waiting for someone who meets their standards and someone is brave enough to show them how they feel. I hope people hear that it’s important to know your worth and never settle. I’m living proof that it’s worth it.”

Carter Faith – “Already Crazy” 

In the midst of assembling her debut album, due out next year, Carter Faith dropped her latest single, “Already Crazy.” The female powerhouse took the traditional breakup song and added her own twist of liberation under the piano-backed track as she stresses, “No, it wasn’t you leavin’ that made me go mad / You didn’t break me, baby / I was already crazy.” Faith co-wrote this soft, velvety tune alongside GRAMMY-nominated Tofer Brown and Lauren Hungate.

“This song means so much to me because of how it tells a story of heartbreak while also empowering someone to be authentically themselves at the same time,” the rising star explained. “It feels like the first song that’s part of something a lot bigger for me.”

Neon Union – “’Bout Damn Time” 

Neon Union has decided it’s “’Bout Damn Time” they re-introduce the nit and grit of country music with their debut single. The country duo made up of Leo Brooks and Andrew Millsaps is revving its engine as the newcomers prepare to take the genre by storm. Produced by Dann Huff, and written by Tyler Hubbard, Michael Hardy, Hunter Phelps and Jordan Schmidt, “’Bout Damn Time” combines both singer’s influences as they strive to assemble the country music community and stress that all are welcome with their hard-hitting tune. 

“We wanted our first track to be high energy and reflective of who we are as a duo. It’s about so much more than the difference in our skin color. ‘Bout Damn Time’ is about how we want to bring a new sound to the country music scene and bring fans together for a great time,” they said, explaining the inspiration behind the new song.

Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots – “Opening Act” 

Radio and television personality Bobby Bones recently dropepd a new lighthearted track titled, “Opening Act,” with his band, Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots. Bones co-wrote the upbeat song with Raging Idiots member Eddie Garcia and emerging artist Brandon Ray, alongside country stars Lainey Wilson and Jordan Davis, both of which are also featured on the song. Together, they make light of what it’s really like to serve as an opening act, and even stole a bit of inspiration from their own experiences in the industry.

“Nobody cares about the opening act/ You don’t know a single song that they play/ Your only wish is that they get off stage/ They said sing along and no one sang/ It’s true, it’s true, it’s true/ Nobody cares about us, cause we’re the opening act,” they sing in the comical tune.

“Playing with the Raging Idiots, we always want to make people laugh and put on a really entertaining show,” Bones said in a statement. “When you’re the opening act, there are always people who are just there for the opener so I wanted to write a funny song about that experience. The first time we played this song was when we opened for Garth Brooks, so it was pretty fitting.”

Tucker Beathard  – “One Of Those”

As rising star Tucker Beathard reflects on his own values, he takes things a step further when he asks the listener if they are, “One Of Those” in his latest release. Beathard served as a co-writer on this track alongside Ben Stennis and Jeff Hyde. Through his meditative vocals, the singer/songwriter kindles the deliberation on what it means to stand up for what you believe to be right and if you’re willing to take action for what you believe to be wrong. 

He sings, “Or are you one of those don’t back down for nothin’ / One of those standing up strong for somethin’ / Walkin’ the walk even if you gotta walk it alone / Are you one of those?”

“I’ve always loved the quote ‘If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything’” explained Beathard. “It’s important to know what you believe and why you believe it, because when adversity comes or shit hits the fan the last place you wanna be is on the fence or in the gray. There’s a lot of people that will talk the talk, but only a few who will stick to their guns and walk the walk.”
