Hey my fellow country fans I just heard the best new song out there on the radio today; Rearview by Jagertown.

Tried to find it online but apparently it’s off an album of the same name that doesn’t come out until next week, but I did find a video here. If this song doesn’t get stuck in your head then your speakers might possibly need fixing! Honestly this is such a refreshing take on the break... Continue reading
