– Carrie Underwood is out with a few new songs on "Greatest Hits: Decade #1." That would include the hit "Something in the Water" and "Little Toy Guns."

Cracker is out with "Berkeley To Bakersfield," a double-album of punk and country. David Lowery of the band said, 'On the Berkeley side, we chose to focus this disc on the music we associate with the East Bay: punk and garage with some funky undertones. The Bakersfield disc represents the California countryside of the band. We've dabbled in country and Americana over our career but this time we wanted to pay homage to the particular strain of country and country rock music that emerges from the inland valleys of California."
