    Country Music News

    1) Morgan Wallen's "One Thing at a Time" is back at #1 on the charts.  (Full Story


    2) Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan had a scary emergency landing on Friday while flying home out of St. Louis.  Luke says it was 16 degrees and winds were blowing at 40 miles per hour, so some instruments on the plane weren't working properly.

    But it all worked out.  They were able to rent a car, and make a stop at Dairy Queen, with Jason behind the wheel. 


    3) Sheryl Crow released a new song about artificial intelligence called "Evolution".  It includes riffs from Rage Against the Machine's guitarist, Tom Morello.  It's the first single from her upcoming album of the same name, that comes out March 29th.


    4) So much country music these days is about partying, enjoying life, and saving horses by riding cowboys.  But some of the best stuff ever written in the genre takes you to the depths of sadness . . . and leaves you there.

    TasteOfCountry.com put together a list of the 30 most depressing country songs.

    5) Back in 2015, Hardy was still a struggling musician, playing for tips.  And one night, instead of a tip, someone wrote "QUIT!" on a napkin and dropped it in his jar. Well, Hardy didn't quit.  He doubled down . . . and I probably don't have to tell you that he MADE IT.

    And on Friday, he released a song about it.  Not surprisingly, it's called "QUIT!"
