If there was any question about Josh Abbott’s intention as a Texas country artist, he answers it on ‘Small Town Family Dream,’ his third studio album. Actually, he doesn’t just answer the question, he pulls a hot poker out of the fire and brands his love for the Lone Star state across his chest, back and arms. There’s no doubt where the Josh Abbbott Band frontman’s loyalty lies.
On her new album ‘Blown Away,’ Carrie Underwood spends time looking backward at relationships that have run their course. The mid-tempo, mandolin driven ‘Do You Think About Me’ is a nostalgic remembrance of a boyfriend that she no longer pines for, but certainly thinks about.

Before Chuck Wicks released ‘Stealing Cinderella’ and spent eight weeks on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ with then-girlfriend Julianne Hough, he was a potato farmer. The Delaware native grew up on his family’s spud farm, working from the time he was 8-years-old until he headed off to college.
Lee Brice‘s new album ‘Hard 2 Love’ feels like a half thank you note, half apology to his soon-to-be wife and their son.
