It's been an exciting and eclectic time for country music this year. While staple country singers like Willie Nelson still make great music, Nashville is exploring new frontiers. Country fans are hearing new sounds like Kacey Musgrave's dreamy pop vocals in "Space Cowboy" and Kane Brown's sultry R&B touch in "Heaven." They're also seeing pop artists return to their southern roots with collaborations like Taylor Swift and Sugarland in "Babe." Both old souls and young hearts will definitely find something to listen to on country radio. At the end of the day, country music is all about storytelling, whether it's capturing sorrow or wrath.
