UPDATE: The winners have been selected and this contest is now closed. Thanks for entering!
It's Free CD Tuesday! On Tuesdays, you see, new releases come out. And we're going to give some away to you.
We've got three releases from Universal Music this week:
Josh Turner -- Punching Bag: The follow-up to 2010’s Haywire, which yielded the No. 1 hits “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and “All Over Me,” Punching Bag represents Josh in fighting shape. Throughout 11 songs, he bobs and weaves like a champ, exhibiting new range in both his voice and his songwriting. He penned eight of the record’s 11 tracks, including the rollicking title song that, he says, set the tone for the entire project.
Ironically, the up-and-at-’em tune was inspired by a particularly down day for the singer. “I’ve learned that songs come to you in various ways, from all different angles,” he says. “Nothing was going my way that day and I felt like I was up against the world. When I got home, my wife Jennifer and I were talking about things that happened and I said, ‘You know, I just feel like a punching bag, like life is beating me up.’” Pound for pound, it may be Josh’s most ambitious and confident record to date.
NOW That’s What I Call Country Vol 5: This country CD is a rollicking good time. With tracks like “Red Solo Cup” Toby Keith, “Drink In My Hand” Eric Church, and "Crazy Girl” Eli Young Band, it was made for roadtrips.
The two-CD pack also includes songs from Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift, and many more. It's a CD that any country fan should have on regular rotation.
Perhaps your dad needs this for Father's Day?
Eden’s Edge -- Eden’s Edge: Three talented young musicians from Arkansas -- Hannah Blaylock, Dean Berner, and Cherrill Green -- make their debut on Big Machine Records with a vibrant sound that honors country music's roots while creatively pushing the envelope with their seasoned musicianship, dazzling harmonies, and insightful songwriting.
"We've found or have written music that moves us and inspires us," said Blaylock. "We just trust that the music will speak for itself. You do what you do and hope people will love it and can connect with it because our first love -- as much as we love playing and writing music -- our first love is inspiring others through music."
