Cam - " Burning House "Yes , I did highlight Cam last week . I am reposting her on this weeks list because as of Friday she was added to GAC 's top twenty countdown voting page . If you like what you hear/see head over to www.greatamericancountry.com to cast your vote and get " Burning House " charting on the count down . On this moody , dreary , rainy day I have listed to this track almost ten times I think . I love it . So , I vote it hitting the voting page along with it fitting the day qualifies it for a second week in a row posting to #NewMusicMonday .
Next , leading the pack with six nominations is Little Big Town . Nominated for album of the year , I think " Pain Killers " has a strong chance . Personally I am torn between LBT and Kacey Musgraves , " Pageant Material " for the win . But then the music nerd in me believes that Chris Stapelton may prove a first go 'round upset to all the artist in the Best Album category . I plan to share a few of his tunes in the weeks ahead . However , as an accomplished writer you may have already heard some of them with out even knowing it . Back to LBT , off of one of my favorite albums this year , " Pain Killers ", I am sharing " Faster Gun " . Again , a tune that musically kinda goes with the darkness of the day and my mood . I am unsure it will be a single seeing as three songs have already been released off the album . Every artist is a bit different with how much of an album will be released . For example , Taylor Swift has released to radio 5 tracks of off 1989 and it is only a year old . So , ya just never know . I digress.....here is " Faster Gun " by Little Big Town .

Thompson Square - " Trans Am "
Up for best duo of the year is Thompson Square . For whatever reason I can not find the official video for this song , so a performance vid will have to do . " Trans Am " is the duo's first release of the year after taking a small bit of time off after number one's such as " Are You Gonna Kiss Me " , " Glass " , & " If I Didn't Have You " . Now , expecting their first child Square is up for the Best Duo award I wanna say third time , I am super bad at numbers so , it could be a give or take situation on the amount , but not for the first time they are up for Duo of The Year . Having won several years ago it would seem all duo's in the recent two years have been shut out by Florida Georgia Line . I mean , o.k. they win it once cause they crossed genre's and toured with a R&B star . O.k. I might get it . Simply due to the exposure of country music around the world through genre mixing factor . But I am now over it . I think that while Maddie and Tae are young/new they have co - written a wonderful first album and are doing well on the heels of the Sounds of Summer tour with Dierks Bently , Kip Moore and Caanan Smith . As I have said before I have a strong affection for writers . Especially writers that are performers as well . I mean , it is a scary thing to sing your own tune for folks to criticize . Considering that all of us who have access to the internet have also deemed ourselves official music critics I am unsure how a person gets that brave . Don't think I could do it . So , props ! Anyway , I kinda have my fingers crossed for TSquare , but could see it going to any set in the category . My fear is that trend will reign and FGL will win for a third year in a row . I think it's third . Third or second . UHG , WHATEVER !
Last , but as expected , I am sharing another tune from Kip Moore's #WildOnes . Small fact , Kip co - wrote , " Let's Fight " , Thompson Squares first official single to hit radio several years ago . While it didn't get all the traction it should have , it is still one of my favorite of their tunes . This week I am sharing the title track from #WildOnes , my ninth share from the 16 track deluxe album . The below video is a bit of a teaser from Life in Rewind films . Responsible for several instagram teasers & youtube, behind the scenes , etc. videos Life in Rewind seems to have been documenting Moore's climb up music row from the very beginning . I love the teaser vids so much that I hope , eventually , LIR will get the opportunity to do a full video that lands on a countdown . Wild Ones is the title track from Moore's most recent studio release . A bit of a chant , a bit of this is how we do and don't , Wild One's is no doubt an anthem . Seeing as he did not release the title track from his last album " Up All Night " , my favorite track from the record btw , I don't even know what to expect from Moore when it comes to the releases off of Wild Ones . Release to single or not I shall be chanting along to this one as I go wherever I want , whenever I want , with whomever I want , if I want . " Cause tonight we're just worried about having fun !! " . Last week I shared " Running For You " on the #NewMusicMonday post , the current single to radio from Moore . Today I called two separate radio stations to request it have some air time . I just wanna remind you that as a fan you have power . VOTE ! VOTE ! VOTE ! REQUEST ! REQUEST ! REQUEST !
