It's been five years since Laura Bell Bundy released her last album, and after many delays, the wait is finally over . Another Piece of Me is released on Big Machine Records, the same label group that houses Taylor Swift and Maddie & Tae. Another Piece of Me is well worth the wait (it was second place in the most anticipated summer albums poll on this blog), with excellent tracks written by Laura Bell Bundy herself, as well as almost all the well known country songwriters you can think of. Seriously. Name one, and that person probably worked on her album.
In country music this year, women supporting other women has been a strong theme, and as Kalie Shorr noted in a recent tweet, Mickey Guyton always comes up as an example of that. Unsurprisingly, Guyton’s EP has a strong adherence to that theme, with many motivational songs that women or girls can jam to in order to improve their mood.
Only about a year after the release of Golden, Lady Antebellum released their new album, 747. This album, instead of being produced by Paul Worley, is produced by Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, The Band Perry.) Needless to say, it has a more upbeat sound, and feels more produced overall. It's a pretty cohesive album, with many gems, sticking to the memories theme they explored in Golden.
