Country fans have been buzzin' for awhile about June, because one country music spitfire -- and well-loved artist -- is releasing her fifth studio album and its title may be a foreshadowing of its success. The artist? Miranda Lambert. The album? 'Platinum.'

Included on Lambert's highly anticipated album is 'Somethin' Bad,' a duet with fellow country star Carrie Underwood, which they debuted at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards.

In addition to 'Platinum' dropping June 3, country newcomer Lucy Hale is releasing her debut album 'Road Between.' This completes her transition from actress to country artist. And country hip-hop artist Big Smo will blur the lines with 'Kuntry Livin'' which is appropriately tagged as 'hick hop.'

Joshua Scott Jones, one-half of popular duo Steel Magnolia, ventures out on his own with a solo project called 'The Healing.' With a broken engagement from duo partner Meghan Linsey, a loss of a record deal, a stint in rehab, and a roller coaster of emotions involved, Jones will give fans an inside look into the cathartic experience of creating this record, and ultimately, healing through it. Bubba Sparxxx rounds out the month with 'Made on McCosh Mill Road'
