If Mama loves country music, she’s set for an exciting Mother’s Day weekend with new music from Kylie Morgan, Carly Pearce, Blessing Offor and Dolly Parton, Chase Rice, Brian Kelley and more. 

Other new songs are cued up from Matt Stell, Allie Colleen and Scotty McCreery.

To hear these songs and more, visit CMT’s new music playlist, CMT Roundup.

Kylie Morgan, “Scratching the Surface (Mama’s Song)”: "I wrote ‘Scratching the Surface (Mama’s Song)’ as a sense of hope for my mama. She is newly an empty nester with my baby sister going off to college & I felt the sense of her feeling like her purpose was now in her past,” shared Kylie. “I then surprised my mom by singing it live with my sister on stage. After sharing it on social media, it turns out millions of mama’s and daughters felt the same way, which moved this song to the front of the line when it came to my next release. With Mother’s Day coming up, I truly hope this song brings healing and validation to everyone out there with this same feeling.”

Carly Pearce, “fault line”: “Some of my favorite songs were in the era of Tammy Wynette and George Jones,” said Pearce. “‘fault line’ is my take on writing one of those classic, ‘I'm gonna rip your head off’ country songs. The playful angst in this song makes it one of my favorite moments on the record.”

Blessing Offor and Dolly Parton, “Somebody’s Child”: “We’re all ‘somebody’s child,’” Blessing explains. “It’s such a simple concept, but I hope it’s the beginning of us all realizing that there’s always a point of empathy, there’s always common ground if we want to find it. And there’s no better embodiment of finding common ground, finding relatability, than Dolly Parton. I’m so honored and humbled to have her on this project.”

Chase Rice, “Fireside”: “This is just the very beginning of my next full album, which to me is another level up from the Cowboys record,” Rice said. “The theme continues with some pictures of my childhood and not only what got me here today, but who did.”

Matt Stell, “Built by Broken Hearts”: “I couldn’t be prouder of Born Lonely,” admits Stell. “When I started writing these songs, I decided to tell the truth – the good, the bad, the fun, the sad, all of it – and see what happened. It turned into the best batch of songs I’ve ever recorded.”

Allie Colleen, “Grass On The Grave”: “This song is a tribute to loss and all that comes out of it,” she said. “Sonically, it resembles the resiliency of healing, and lyrically, it represents the frustration of letting go. I hope it creates a safe space for recovery and pushes the listener forward to the pursuit of ‘more.’"

Albums/EPs out today:

Brian Kelley, “Tennessee Truth”: “I’m so excited for y’all to hear my debut album. Each and every one of these songs make up my Tennessee Truth,” shares Kelley. “I hope everyone enjoys listening to this project as much as I did making it. This is my Tennessee Truth.”

Scotty McCreery, “Rise & Fall”: “I’ve been living with this record for months…it is more me than any I’ve ever made, and I’m so excited for the world to finally hear it,” said Scotty McCreery.

Lily Rose, “Runnin' Outta Time”: “Making this EP has been a patient, intentional and rewarding process these last few years,” shares Rose. “I feel like it exemplifies exactly where I'm at in this season of life – being the best version of myself that I can be, while moving at a million miles an hour.”
