What I'm Listening to | September

Each month I'll share five songs I'm been loving all month and hopefully you'll find a song or two (or all of them!) to love as well.

Just press play to listen to all the songs!

I'm doing something a little different today! For starters, I'm sharing 8 songs instead of 5 and more importantly, there's a theme! Usually when I can't find any new music to listen to, I fall back on my usual favorites, which tend to be garage/alternative/indie rock. But since last year, I've added a new genre to my list of fallbacks – country. Specifically, female country singers. I think it all started when I fell in love with Jana Kramer's music and then Maren Morris' album last year. For the last couple weeks I've had my country playlist on repeat so I thought I'd share some of my favorite songs. Most are old-ish but there's a couple new ones on there too.

If I Were You
 - Jillian Jacqueline (feat. Keith Urban) | I heard this for the first time last week and it quickly became my most played song this month! She's got a great voice and the lyrics really struck a chord with me.

I Wish I Was - Maren Morris | I've featured this song before and played it more times than I can count but the words still get me every time ("Cause you're looking for true love / And I'm not the one / But I wish, but I wish I was").

Just Another Thing - Maren Morris | It's one of her more upbeat songs but not in a poppy way. It's just really sassy and I adore it.

End Up With You - Carrie Underwood | I used to listen to Carrie Underwood when she first started out (Some Hearts and Carnival Ride) but not much since. Then I heard this song a few weeks ago and it reminded me of catchy her songs are and how great her voice is.

Vice - Miranda Lambert | I fell in love with this song the moment I heard it. The mood, Miranda's voice, the lyrics.

Sway - Danielle Bradbery | Sway is definitely more on the country-pop side but it's so catchy. It makes me think of warm summer days.

Love - Jana Kramer | I've seen Jana Kramer twice now (and would totally see her a third time) and while I've loved both her albums, this song never fails to be a fave.

Tennessee - The Wreckers | I have such a fondness for Michelle Branch. I actually forgot The Wreckers were considered country until Estelle mentioned it (and this song). Thanks to her I added this song to my playlist!

Yay for new (to me) country music!

Which song is your favorite?

Here's my full country playlist if you want to know what else I'm listening to!
