So here's a new list of some country songs that are pretty new that are deserving of my noble recommendation, as well as one of Mumford and Sons' newest songs, and lastly an under-rated song with a link to the music video because VEVO hates free internet.
Mumford and Sons "I Will Wait" from the album "Babel".
Easton Corbin "All over the Road"

The song starts like a few other of Paisley's storylines, like "Cooler Online", but the beauty of this song is with the guitars and the video. (Also that beautiful Telecaster that Paisley plays, seen to the left!). You can hear some nice, twangy riffs that song distinctly like Keith Urban and Brad Paisley (Watch Keith Urban's "Stupid Boy" video on YouTube to hear how his guitar usually sounds). Come about 2:45 into the song, the two start going into solo-battles, and if you watch the video you can just see how much fun they are having, playing off of each other's leads and even playing each other's guitars in the middle of the solos. It's incredible, and these two are easily the best guitarists in mainstream country music. The video has great shots of their hands while they are playing and folks who have played guitar know what's going on and folks that haven't should get a little better appreciation for what goes into learning these instruments. So like I said, click here to watch the YouTube video of these two in action and maybe you'll see what I'm talking about.
Remember, I'd love to hear any of your own recommendations or thoughts on music, country or otherwise.
