At Sounds Like Nashville, we pride ourselves on bringing our readers updates about the latest and greatest songs coming out of Music City. Whether it’s a new single from the biggest superstar or the debut track from a new artist, we hope to bring fans a wide range of what’s hot in country music.

At the top of each month, our staff selects their personal favorite new songs and updates SLN’s ongoing 10 Songs You Should Be Listening To playlist. This month, Sounds Like Nashville will highlight ten incredible black artists, who are all sharing their voices and experiences through one of the most powerful means: music. Rising star Mickey Guyton has been an avid advocate, speaking out for injustices happening around the world. Her latest effort, the powerful “Black Like Me,” speaks to her own personal experiences living as a black woman in America. Kane Brown also released a timely new track with “Worldwide Beautiful.” The song is one he’s held on to for over a year, but found that it needed to be shared due to the events surrounding George Floyd’s murder and the resulting protests.
