Singer/songwriter, Allie Colleen, has announced the release of her new thought-provoking and emotional single, “Feels Like.”

“I’ve always wanted a love song that I could live out when I sang it. For me, every single memory, every single recount in this song comes from a very special place in my life when I felt more loved than I’ve ever felt,” reflects Allie Colleen. ”In my case, of course, almost every memory is a childhood memory or a memory with friends or family, not so much romantic memories, except one, but that’s up to the interpreter.”

5Watkins Family Hour – Vol. II

Vol. II follows Watkins Family Hour’s sophomore album Brother Sister, which they released as the COVID-19 pandemic began taking hold of the globe and, in turn, shut down the live music industry. That record was, serendipitously, a quieter affair, showcasing the musical interplay between Sara and Sean that keeps the Family Hour heart beating. In many ways, it’s also a successor to Watkins Family Hour, the self-titled 2015 album that introduced the band to a broader audience and sent them, along with some of their closest collaborators, out on the road to tour. They will be performing in Nashville at Americana Fest on Sept. 17.

Nashville singer/songwriter Sam Williams announces a forthcoming deluxe version of his celebrated debut, Glasshouse Children. Featuring six new tracks, Glasshouse Children: Tilted Crown comes out Oct. 14 via Mercury Nashville. Williams’ first song off the expanded edition, “Ragdoll,” written by Williams with Femke Weidema and William Benjamin Roberts.

“Ragdoll represents putting it all on the line for someone in a playful way,” says Williams on the single. “It’s a fresh sound for me and I think it’s a fun love song, ‘Let me be your ragdoll’ translates to ‘I’m yours.’”

Whisperin’ Bill Anderson and Dolly Parton release a bluegrass version of “Someday It’ll All Make Sense.

“The bluegrass/acoustical version was the original way this song was recorded. Sierra Hull played mandolin, her husband, Justin Moses, played fiddle and dobro and the record was co-produced by longtime bluegrass stalwart, Thomm Jutz. Both Dolly and I have a deep appreciation for the simplicity and authenticity of this type of music, and we both wanted this version to be heard,” Anderson shared. “I think the intimacy and warmth of the acoustical approach allow the lyric of the song to stand out even more. And it’s that lyric that seems to be resonating with people.”
