Album releases become available for download Fridays at midnight East Coast Time. Since that’s 9pm Thursday night West Coast Time, every Thursday night, Pepper picks her three favorite songs from the new country albums and plays them on K-Frog for New at Nine! Here are her picks for this week.
One of the most exciting albums of 2016 is Maren Morris‘s debut, Hero. It’s filled with empowering songs – and if you have sensitive ears, be warned that there’s plenty doses of the “s” word in it, too (but none that made it on the radio!). Be sure to catch this bright new star opening for Keith Urban at the Staples Center on Thursday, October 20th!
Here are the three songs from Hero that I played tonight for New at Nine:
- ’80s Mercedes
- My Church
- Second Wind
(P.S. If “Second Wind” sounds familiar, that’s probably because you’ve heard Kelly Clarkson‘s version of it on her Piece by Piece album!)
