Jamie Lynn Spears, ‘How Could I Want More’ – ToC Critic’s Pick [Listen]

Jamie Lynn Spears' country debut is as honest and authentic as many (OK, most) figured it probably wouldn't be. 'How Could I Want More' is a sharp, vulnerable lyric that the 22-year-old little sister to Britney Spears takes full ownership of. There's not a whiff of that pretension that so often follows a pop star as he or she crosses into country music.

The Cadillac Three (Feat. Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, Mike Eli), ‘The South’ – ToC Critic’s Pick [Listen]

With 'The South,' the Cadillac Three make many of the other rock-inspired country artists seem as aggressive as a Beanie Baby.
