Mitchell Tenpenny released the seven song "Neon Christmas." The title track and "The Naughty List" are new songs from Tenpenny.
Once upon a time, Terry McBride was one of the members of McBride & The Ride. He later had success as a songwriter (Brooks & Dunn have recorded more than 20 of his songs), but now has put out his second solo release, "Rebels & Angels."
The Cadillac Three released "Tabasco & Sweet Tea," a non-country album of blues and funk.
