    Great New Country Music Recommendation (maybe even Jim Schue might approve)

    Jeremy Pinnell is a Northern Kentuckian who released a new album last month. I think I am a little obsessed with it. If you like country music (not the Country Girl Shake It For Me or the Huntin Fishin Lovin Every Minute of It kind) then give Jeremy a listen. The album is on Spotify. My favorite song is a Different Kind of Love, but I think they are all pretty good.

    Yesterday on WNKU's final day, they squeezed Jeremy in twice on their final day play list (that list is also available on Spotify).

    I've been listening to Chris Stapleton on heavy rotation the last month. Hard to argue against him and his throwback sound.

    Agreed - Jeremy is cut from the same cloth.

    After honing his skills in the Cincinnati band "Elmwood" Ruston Kelly moved to Nashville to launch is solo career while also becoming engaged to award winning Country singer Kacey Musgraves.

    Leaning more towards alt/country than maybe traditional, however I opine that alt/country often borrows more from traditional Country than does pop Country, in that it has a tendency of hanging closer to the root.

    Here he is in his national TV debut just this past Monday night on Seth Meyers.

    This tune "Black Magic" is from his EP "Halloween", released last fall, but is now gaining steam thanks to a ton of touring as of late, which has also landed him a warmup spot for an upcoming show with Jason Isbell in Lousiville in December.

    First spotted Ruston a couple of summers ago headlining with a fantastic performance at the Bluegrass & Beer Music Fest on the Riverside in Bellevue, Ky and knew that I was hearing brilliance.

    I'm going to reserve judgement until I hear more. For some reason the harmony sounds off, but this is live so..

    Rising star in Nashville and Kentucky boy, JD Shelburne--- I saw him a couple months ago. Very energetic performer and good songwriter. The video was filmed in Taylorsville, his hometown.

    There is a ton of Kentucky talent out there right now. Most folks know of Stugill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, and Sundy Best, but there are a bunch of talented people right now.

    Here's one of my favorites.
