It’s been an exciting time for many of the artists featured on the playlist. On September 2, Jon Pardi released his fourth studio album, Mr. Saturday Night. The project has been widely hailed in media reviews. Its arrival coincided with the premiere of a brand new video for the album’s title song. Billboard calls it “an homage to beer-soaked, neon-lit barrooms” and Holler describes the set as “the sort of heartbreak album that gives the listener both a chance to cry their eyes out and hit the dance floor for some much-needed boot-scootin’. Jon Pardi is simply our esteemed King of Bleeding Hearts.”

Little Big Town released their 10th studio album, Mr. Sun, on September 16. On the day of the release, the band unveiled the music video for “Three Whiskeys and the Truth,” which was directed by Running Bear Film’s Stephen & Alexa Kinigopoulos. Immediately following the video’s premiere, the band went live exclusively on YouTube Premium for a livestreamed afterparty to answer fan questions about the new album.

Listen to “Latino Infused Country.”

    HISPANIC and LATINO are misnomers that were redefined by the wasicu colonizers to oversimplify the Census. HISPANIC and LATINO people are of European origin. Just like Indian and Native-American are BS terms because it was too difficult for the white people to learn the hundreds of different tribes and clans of indigenous people who not only weren’t from India, they and their ancestors existed on this land thousands of years prior to it being renamed America. FYI, those whom you label as Latino/Hispanic are actually indigenous people from Mexica tribes, who were enslaved by Spaniards and French invasive species of Europeans, who were given Spanish surnames, like the slaves of the Southern USA had their surnames changed, or the children forced into INDIAN SCHOOLS had the Native beaten out of them, starting with replacing their birth names with anglo names. Lazy journalism is getting tiresome.
