Listen to all of this week’s finds on demand right here, and/or on Breakout Country – airing Saturday at 4pm (Bridgewater, NS), Sunday at 4pm (Halifax, NS & Saint John, NB) & Sunday at 6pm (Thunder Bay, ON)!

The Reklaws teamed up with Drake Milligan from America’s Got Talent, hoping for, “this year’s biggest party anthem!

Kidd G is a model, singer, and TikTok star known for his unique flow, upbeat energy and creative take on hip hop – now being called, “Country Music’s Next Emo-Rap Star!”

Emily Reid says, “I really wanted to put out something that I was proud of and I wanted to tell this story. I know I’m not alone in the feeling of trying to be something to make other people happy and losing yourself in the process. I’m so grateful to all of the amazing people in my life who have encouraged this out of me and couldn’t have done it without them x10,000. Cheers!”

Josh Ross says, “When we first started writing the song, we thought of doing it as a sad ballad. But while we were on the writing trip, we got the news that I was going to be opening for Nickelback on their Get Rollin’ Tour, so we thought making it a country-rock song for our live set would be a cool idea.

Hailey Whitters new album I’m In Love just came out on Friday! About this song she says, “It’s no secret I grew up a kid on ’90s country radio… I was reminiscing about Trisha Yearwood‘s song ‘XXX’s & OOO’s… thinking a lot about the way that song made me feel – strong and like I could do anything I set my mind to despite whatever barriers anyone or anything might put in my way. I wanted to write a song that made young girls growing up in today’s world feel that same feeling.

Dan Davidson says, “Sometimes songs just fall out of you and you don’t have to fight it – that’s when you know it’s good! This was one of those songs. It’s about how everything can change for a guy in an instant, and usually it’s enough to explain it all by saying “He met a girl” – right away, everyone knows what that means.”

Brad Paisley bring us this new summer anthem, the 2nd new song off his new album at a new record label coming out later this year!

Morgan Wade‘s new album Psychopath is out August 25th with this song saying, “That nostalgic, joyful sentiment is what we were channeling when writing this song and I think we got there. ‘80’s movie’ is fun, melodic and light-hearted and I am so excited it’s finally here.

Ryan Langdon says, “I’m not trying to change anyone’s mind to like me, or to convince them of anything other than who I truly am. I wanted to inspire others to just be themselves. I feel like other songs often try to convince a partner or people that deep down they are something different.

Lemon Cash are brothers from Ottawa who bring us “a playful, propulsive, and triumphant-yet-heartbreaking anthem that showcases [their] songwriting prowess, infectious energy and unique blend of heartfelt storytelling and captivating melodies.”

From Sarnia, Ontario, Eric Ethridge‘s original, “safe” plan was to become a chiropractor, first earning a degree in kinesiology and exercise physiology at Western University in London, ON. “That’s when I really started cutting my teeth, performing in bars all the time, around 2007, 2008. When I graduated in 2011, I had gotten into chiropractor school. A week before I was going to go, I decided to wait and pursue music. My family was, like, ‘Uh… are you sure?’ My buddy, who I also convinced to go to chiro school was like, ‘Dude, really?‘”

From Dustin Lynch‘s album Blue In The Sky, “whether connecting before the concert, thrilling a crowd onstage, or creating the soundtrack to a starry-eyed couple’s love story, the proven entertainer has never been more magnetic or more in tune with the moments that define forever-kind of memories.”
