Kelly Clarkson’s holiday project, When Christmas Comes Around, arrived on Friday, and the track list boasts some impressive collaborators. Among them is Chris Stapleton, who lends his voice to one particularly soulful song, “Glow.”

Kelly and Chris trade verses on the song, a love ballad about the one special person who’s missing from an otherwise perfect Christmas.

“Nothin’ has changed, I still wish you could be / Wrapped up in my arms, spendin’ Christmas with me,” the pair harmonize in the chorus. “When it gets cold is when I notice the most / With all the lights on the trees, even Christmas can’t compete with your glow...”

This is the first time Kelly’s ever teamed with Chris, but the pop star’s no stranger to country collaborations in general. In fact, “Under the Mistletoe” -- her duet with Brett Eldredge -- is a bonus track on When Christmas Comes Around.

Kelly also snagged a number-one country hit back in 2011, thanks to her duet with Jason Aldean, “Don’t You Wanna Stay.”

UMG Nashville

Jordan Davis and Luke Bryan reunite this week for a new version of “Buy Dirt,” a duet that originally came out as the title track of Jordan’s May EP.

This time around, the two stars trade verses on a stripped-down, acoustic version that highlights the song’s message. A new video shows Jordan and Luke performing the song from two bar stools, putting an emphasis on the song’s advice for leading a simple, happy life.

When Jordan first released “Buy Dirt,” he explained that he wanted Luke on the track because the country superstar embodies the message behind the song.

“Luke isn't just a great entertainer; he's a great dad, a great husband, and a great friend, too," Jordan explained. "That's what 'Buy Dirt' embodies. When I wrote 'Buy Dirt,' I knew he could relate to the song's message."

“Buy Dirt” also lends its name to Jordan’s headlining tour, which kicked off in September. Beginning this month, the singer is also a supporting act on Kane Brown’s Blessed and Free Tour.

Hot on the heels of his viral hit, “Fancy Like,” Walker Hayes returns with another taste of his signature rhythm, swagger and authenticity. This time, it’s “U Gurl,” a playfully sultry ode to his partner.

“With ‘U Gurl’ we wanted to capture that feeling when you look at your significant other and you just can’t take your eyes off them, yet in a fresh way,” the singer says. “I get that feeling every day when I look at my wife.”

Walker’s been teasing the release of “U Gurl” all week, and he’s already shared a TikTok dance to go along with the song. Just like the dance that helped send “Fancy Like” viral, the new moves are the brainchild of Walker and his teenage daughter, Lela.

Walker will debut the live version of “U Gurl” tonight during a show in Waco, Texas. Fans worldwide can tune in when it livestreams on Walker’s socials at 10 p.m. CT.

Miranda Lambert is kicking off a new musical chapter on Friday, with the release of her dreamy, mid-tempo new single, “If I Was a Cowboy.”

The track paints a picture of life out on the open plains in the West, chasing freedom on horseback and seeing the world from under the brim of a Stetson hat.

Miranda co-wrote the song with acclaimed Nashville producer Jesse Frasure, whom she met earlier this year while working on a very different kind of project: The dance remix of her song, “Tequila Does.”

Both creators behind “If I Was a Cowboy” had to dig into their imaginations to write the song, Miranda explains, as neither of them have much personal experience with the Wild West. “It’s funny, he’s a Detroit boy, and I’m an East Texan, but somehow we wrote a song about the Wild West together,” she notes.

“If I Was a Cowboy” hits radio next week. In addition to gearing up for new solo music, Miranda recently announced that her band The Pistol Annies -- also featuring Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe -- will have a new Christmas album out this year.

Sony Music Nashville

More than four years after the arrival of his first EP, Ryan Hurd's first full-length album finally arrives today. 

Though he's previously written number-ones for Lady ALuke Bryan, and Blake Shelton, the record features Ryan's biggest hit as an artist so far, his nearly-top-five duet with his wife Maren Morris"Chasing After You."

And it's titled... Pelago

"It was called RH LP1 Sony Music Nashville for about three months," Ryan laughs, perhaps hinting at some difficulty or delay in finding a name.

"Well, first of all, you have to ask me about it, so that's a good thing," he explains. "Second of all, I needed a word that rhymed with Chicago for my song 'Coast,' and I kind of used that as a placeholder thinking I made it up, and turns out, it's actually a word in Italian and Latin that is actually what it sounds like."

So Ryan's unusual album title is actually a teaching moment.

"It's a word that means 'open sea,' and it's a word that means 'overwhelming passion,'" he reveals. "So I thought that was just a really cool umbrella for all of these songs in this project."

Physical copies and downloads of Pelago offer eleven new songs, all co-written by Ryan, save for "Chasing After You." Streaming versions of the album also add four favorites, including "To a T" and "Diamonds or Twine."

Miranda Lambert’s had a slew of new songs to share this year, and she’s showing no signs of slowing down now. This week, the singer has been teasing the release of a new track, called “If I Were a Cowboy,” on Friday.

A snippet of the song shows Miranda sitting alone at a bar, drink in front of her, as the song’s mid-tempo, guitar-driven chorus plays. “Wanted by the law, but the laws don’t apply to me,” she sings. “If I was a cowboy, I’d be wild and free...”

The new song appears to fit more into Miranda’s signature, straight-ahead country sound than much of what she’s released thus far in 2021. Previously, she put out a collaboration with rocker Elle King called “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” and a stripped-down acoustic project with collaborators Jack Ingram and Jon Randall called The Marfa Tapes.

Whether or not “If I Were a Cowboy” signals a new solo album from Miranda, however, remains to be seen.

In the meantime, fans will have plenty of new music to get their fix from the superstar. She and her trio, The Pistol Annies -- also featuring Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley -- recently announced a Christmas album due out this holiday season, called Hell of a Holiday.

Though Lainey Wilson’s still a little in shock that she’s got a number-one country radio hit, the “Things a Man Oughta Know” star says she’s fired up to be a part of where country music is headed next.

“It feels like it couldn’t be a better time for me and my music. I’m proud, humbled, excited and ready to it again,” she tells CMT.

The singer goes on to say that now she’s had a taste of success, she’s “hungry for more,” and she’s hoping to achieve her goals by sticking to the authenticity and heart that helped her create “Things a Man Oughta Know.”

“I’m going to keep saying what people are thinking with my music,” she adds. “If I stay extremely honest and continue to tell it like it is, I believe I’ll remain successful.”

“Things a Man Oughta Know” hit the top of the charts last month. Lainey wrote the song with collaborators Jason Nix and Jonathan Singleton. It's a track from her freshman project, Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’.
