“Rainbow” was released in February 2019 as the fifth single from Musgraves' third studio album Golden Hour.
In the music video, various characters are shown in different rooms with dim light, including “a single mother taking care of her child, a man facing his alcohol abuse, a young person wrestling with gender identity, and a teenager caught in the middle of a family crisis."
Scenes of Musgraves performing the song either silently accompanying the others or alone are mixed in throughout the video and near the end, she is seen sitting on the floor of a room as a rainbow appears overhead.
The song was my grandmother’s favorite before she passed away. She passed away unexpectedly several years ago, and it was the song I wrote last right before she passed.
“I Don’t Know About You” was released in 2018 as the second single from his second major-label album Laps Around the Sun.
Taste of Country describes the song as a "slow jam" which "finds the singer walking into a bar to find a girl he's determined to get to know." It features a "rhythmic singing style" in which the song's narrator wants to get to know a woman more closely after encountering her in a bar.
“Women” marks the second collaboration between Florida Georgia Line and Jason Derulo. Their first collaboration was“This Is How We Roll” back in 2014.
“The video we posted with [Jason] Derulo kind of captures the experience of working in the studio with him, getting creative. – you know, recording and performing. There are a brotherhood and a bond there – a friendship that kind of breeds creativity. We’re 100-percent comfortable with each other. So the whole process, from [Brian] throwing the title out there to the finished product, seeing it on the album, it’s sort of been a cool process in multiple stages. It’s one that we’re really thankful for, and honored to be a part of.”
"Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset" was released in May 2018 as the third single from Bryan's 2017 album What Makes You Country.
The song recalls a summertime romance between two teenaged protagonists. The narrator falls in love with a girl after being hired to paint the girl's father's house.
In July 2018, Bryan released a lyric video that includes pictures of his family (Click the icon “<”“>” to watch it).
"Beautiful Crazy" is a bonus track to his 2017 debut album This One's for You and had gained viral attention prior to its release as a single.
“Beautiful Crazy” is a love song about different reasons why he likes a girl. Taste of Country describes the song as “a slow, personal love song that truly showcases the singer’s talents”.
The song is the second single released from McCreery’s fourth studio album Seasons Change (2018). “This Is It” was written with Frank Rogers and Aaron Eshuis two weeks before proposing to his longtime girlfriend. He sang the song at his wedding reception. The music video features real-life footage from his wedding.
“Drowns the Whiskey” was released in May 2018 as the second single from Aldean's album Rearview Town.
The song is a steel guitar-led song with neotraditional country influences. In it, the male narrator sings about his vain attempts to "drown" the memory of a former loved one by drinking whiskey, but instead observes that the memory of said lover "drowns the whiskey."
“Must’ve Never Met You” was released on June 1, 2018.
Avoiding tapping your foot or nodding your head along to the track is near impossible, and in addition to a good driving beat, the lyrics perfectly convey the point that getting over someone is much easier said than done.
Brown officially released the single in June 2018, following an Instagram post he made in March that featured him dancing to the song's chorus with his dog.
“The song meaning, to me, is, you just want to get away from everything. I feel like everybody is always on their social media. I can’t say nothing, because that’s how I got started; I’m always on social media. But it’s, “lose your phone,” “lose the old-school radio station. It’s just you and your girl getting away and not worrying about any problems going on in the world today. It’s just, lose it and have fun together.”
Written by duo members Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley along with Hardy and Mark Holman, the song expresses romantic love as a "simple" concept.
The music video features a grandfather recalling a romantic story to his grandchildren, interspersed with scenes from his wife and his younger self crashing a party in the 1930s.
