Good country dating songs
In country music, a label will generally only release an album if one of its singles succeeds on the radio first.
Some of country's best male voices (Josh Turner, Kip Moore, Brothers Osborne) have seen albums stuck in limbo for years because they failed to get a radio hit.

("Whisper") may not be what you're looking for yet, but that's OK, because music was not meant to be heard in singles, but in albums."Rice, who is a scheduled presenter at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, emphasized "album" four more times; "Whisper" is merely the first single off his upcoming sophomore album, which he promises has a wide range of topics.
