Welcome to the first Country VS rate on Pop Justice. Each of the four artist here have brought something a little different to Nashville. First up is Ashley Monroe. Monroe’s music style is a throwback to country sound of previous years with her own lyrical twists. The album “The Blade” was produced by country legend and 21 time Grammy winner Vince Gill. The lone single “Onto Something Good” peaked at number 53 on the country charts. Monroe has found success with girl group Pistol Annies and duet Lonely Tonight that peaked at #2. The album was nominated for Best Country album and made many best year end lists. On To Something Good I Buried Your Love Alive Bombshell Weight Of The Load The Blade Winning Streak From Time To Time If Love Was Fair Has Anybody Ever Told You Dixie If The Devil Don't Want Me Mayflowers I'm Good At Leavin Next up is Kacey Musgraves. Musgraves has earned herself a bit of a reputation as being liberal country music. Her first single Merry Go Round looked at the darker aspect of rural living while Follow Your Arrow caused a bit of a stir. Her follow up Pageant Material is the one we will be rating here. Biscuits and Dime store Cowgirl charted at 28 and 44. Musgraves music often has themes being yourself and not giving into other expectations of you. Her frequent songwriting partners and members of LGBT community Brandy Clark has released two great albums herself and Shane McAnally has been all over Nashville. The album was nominated for best country album and made many best year end lists.

The album was mainly produced in California outside the norm of typically either being in Nashville or maybe Texas. The first single My Mistake came and went without much notice. The second single was then played on major country radio show once and received such a large response that country radio started adding the song to their playlist. The song played kind of as antithesis of bro-country. Burning House is the highest charting song here at number 29 on the Hot 100 and #2 on country charts. Lyrically the album has underlying feminist message. Untamed Hungover On Heartache Mayday Burning House Cold in California My Mistake Runaway Train Half Broke Heart Want It All Country Ain't Never Been Pretty Village The final contender is Maren Morris with Hero. While Hero is the most current sounding of all the albums it’s the most experimental in sounds. She found big success with the lead single My Church that when onto to win Grammy for album year. Lyrically she brings a style and phrasing that is unique for country music but used more frequently in other genres. The album has seen the most commercial success as well.
