In recent times, the country scene has been undergoing a significant transformation, and Maren Morris is making it clear that she is distancing herself from aspects of the genre that she considers harmful. The Texas-born artist recently unveiled two new songs and accompanying music videos on Friday, titled “The Tree” and “Get The Hell Out Of Here,” as part of her EP called “The Bridge.”

Through these songs, Maren Morris shares her thoughts on the current state of country music. In “The Tree,” she metaphorically references cutting down problematic trees, suggesting that the real issue lies at its roots, and she has endured it longer than she should have despite being unfairly blamed. Maren Morris is embracing a new beginning, and there are ten additional fresh songs to enjoy. Check out some of them right here.

Mitski, ‘My Love Mine All Mine

Mitski’s seventh album, titled “The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We,” which is set to be released this Friday, exudes radiant warmth and confident ease that are prominently showcased in the single, “My Love All Mine.” Mitski sings with a clear, powerful voice, declaring, “Nothing in the world belongs to me but my love,” while a group of backing vocalists adds depth to the song’s ambiance.

The inclusion of delicate piano melodies reminiscent of a cozy barroom and occasional hints of pedal steel guitar create a nighttime country vibe, with Mitski leading the song at a leisurely pace that seems to stretch time itself.

Cat Power, ‘She Belongs to Me (Live at the Royal Albert Hall)’

In the previous year, Chan Marshall, known by her stage name Cat Power, delivered a complete performance, faithfully recreating Bob Dylan’s legendary 1966 “Royal Albert Hall” concert. 

On November 10th, she is set to release a live album featuring the entire 15-song set, which includes a moving rendition of “She Belongs to Me.”

Renowned for her prolific and instinctive interpretation of others’ songs, Chan Marshall strikes a perfect balance of respect and innovation with this 1965 Dylan classic. She slows down the original’s tempo, infusing a comforting atmosphere through the crackling, inviting warmth of her voice.

Chris Stapleton, ‘Think I’m in Love With You

The steady rhythm, understated guitar riffs, subtle organ accomplishment, and the ethereal strings in “Think I’m in Love With You” unmistakably draw inspiration from the soul music of 1970s Memphis.

Chris Stapleton’s vocal performances also pay tribute to this era, with his melodic jumps, expressive trills, and rhythmic variations reminiscent of AI Green’s style. However, Chris Stapleton injected his unique intensity and rawness into this genre; his tribute is emotionally charged and distinctively his own.

Parchman Prison Prayer, ‘Break Every Chain’

Inmates incarcerated at the infamous Parchman Farm prison in Mississippi participate in weekly church services, where they engage in singing. Similar to folklorist Alan Lomax’s work in the 1940s, producer Ian Brennan recently visited Parchman to capture recordings. 

During one of the Sunday sessions, he recorded passionate Gospel performances, the majority of which were solo and unaccompanied, featuring prisoners who are collectively known as Parchman Prison Prayer. 

The proceeds generated from the album, titled “Some Mississippi Sunday Morning,” will go towards supporting the Mississippi Department of Corrections Chaplain Services. One of the contributors to the album is M. Kyles, a prisoner in his 50s, whose soaring voice passionately praises the power of Jesus’s name in the song “Break Every Chain.”
