Miranda Lambert's Sultry New Single, «Vice» to Be Revealed on July 18
Miranda Lambert has announced she will finally be releasing a new single, «Vice».
Miranda has been dropping hints about her new single this past week on Twitter. Her most recent post was a photo of a vinyl 45 record with the title «Vice» blurred out and a caption that simply said «July 18». But it looks like the word is officially out and «Vice», cowritten by Miranda, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, will be the new single.
We at Nash Country Daily have been lucky enough to get a sneak listen to the sultry single and there's a reason she posted the image of the vinyl record as a hint. We can say that it is a very different kind of song for Miranda - one that you wouldn't expect - but well worth the wait.

Maren Morris Spruces Up Breakout Album, “Hero,” With Three New Unreleased Tracks
Maren Morris’ breakout album, Hero, landed on many of 2016’s Best Of lists and earned nominations for ACM, CMA and Grammy awards for Album of the Year. But Maren isn’t resting on her laurels when it comes to her major-label debut album. The “My Church” singer has announced that she will be releasing a deluxe version of Hero on March 17.
The deluxe edition will feature three new songs, all co-written by Maren, that were not included on the original version: “Bummin’ Cigarettes,” “Space” and “Company You Keep.” Fans of Maren will no doubt be familiar with the tunes, because the Texas native performs them during her concert sets.
«Django & Jimmie» by Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard
Legends Willie and Merle salute musical pioneers Django Reinhardt and Jimmie Rodgers in their 2015 duet album. For the concept alone, this should rank among the year's finest and most important records. Thankfully, the material lives up to the premise, with standouts like «It's All Going to Pot», «Missing Ol' Jonny Cash» and the swinging title track. Plus, the rhythms and melodies sound as fresh and mesmerizing as anything out there in the mainstream. In an industry that seems more and more obsessed with youth, it's nice to see a couple of alpha stags showing the young bucks how it's done.

Joey Feek’s Posthumous Debut Solo Album Set For Release
A little more than a year after the death of Joey+Rory’s Joey Feek from ovarian cancer, the singers debut solo album, If Not For You, is set for release on April 7.
Produced by husband Rory Feek, the 12-track album was recorded in 2005 and will included Joey’s original recording of the song “That’s Important to Me.” The tune was also a single for Joey + Rory in 2010 and featured on their sophomore album, Album Number Two.
“The album is filled with songs that spoke to her and, even more, spoke volumes about her. About what’s most important to her. The lyrics of this record made it clear who she was and who she wanted to be,” Rory said in the album’s booklet. “Yes, her voice might have changed a bit in time, but her character was already rock-solid.”
Included with the album will be a 48-page booklet of photos and stories from Joey,

Art Imitates Life as Billy Ray Cyrus Crosses His Own “Thin Line”
Billy Ray Cyrus is a busy man these days. Writing and starring in his own sitcom, Still The King, which was picked up for a second season by CMT, would keep anyone busy enough.
