A lot of songs are considered for each New Music Weekly playlist, but only the best and most repeat-worthy ones make the cut. This week, we’re digging some pretty unique country releases thanks to a new album from The Voice judge Blake Shelton and an unlikely yet awesome compilation of country artists paying tribute to Motley Crue. We’ve also got pep in our step thanks to the latest full-length from Swedish indie duo JJ and a big single from Netsky featuring Beth Ditto.
