Dierks Bentley today releases his take on the Tom Petty classic, "American Girl." The free-spirited, bluegrass-tinged track officially impacts country radio today (via Big Machine Records/The Valory Music Co.) and is from the forthcoming Tom Petty tribute album, Petty Country: A Country Music Celebration of Tom Petty to be released by Big Machine in partnership with the Tom Petty Estate. The album brings together the top Country and Americana artists to create a tribute to Petty's musical legacy.

Of the song, Bentley shares, "Petty's southern roots shined through across his songwriting and storytelling. He might not have ever been considered as country, but you can't go into a bar in Nashville without hearing this song. It is one of the greatest songs in a life's work of great American songs. The spirit of this woman, the idea of such relentless hope - and disappointment - ignites such a spark. Jon and I were driven to make that feeling of American roots stand tall." (continue)

Sum 41 have shared a music video for their newest single "Waiting On A Twist Of Fate", which comes from their upcoming final album Heaven :x: Hell. The second single from the double album's pop-punk Heaven side, "Waiting On A Twist Of Fate" harkens back to the earliest days of the band's pop punk roots. The track opens the album the only way long-time fans would expect Sum 41 to open an album - a flurry of guitar riffs, drum fills, and vocals powerful enough to raise the dead.

The video, filmed at the Punk Rock Museum in Las Vegas, pays homage to the music that inspired the formation of Sum 41 that the members hold close to their hearts to this day. The video features a cameo from CJ Ramone, as well as footage of Sum 41 inside of Green Day's infamous tour bus the Bookmobile. (continue)

bog berries just released a new single called "Nobody Told Me", and to celebrate we asked mastermind Cooper Evello to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

I started writing "nobody told me" when I was driving around Massachusetts teaching teen band ensembles, private piano lessons to 7 year old who didn't really want to learn, and writing music for a non-profit that didn't really care that much about what I was creating. In most ways I had a really great life and felt grateful for my community, food, shelter, having a job where I was involved with music, my partner etc.. But also in a lot of ways I felt without purpose, I felt meaningless, I felt like I wasn't doing anything with my life that mattered. I think I felt like what I had imagined my life to be was not coming true. I had toured with bands before but nothing ever took off. I had recorded and released songs before but nothing went viral. I continued to see friends and hang otu but sometimes social gatherings or just existing felt a little hollow in a way I never thought I would feel. It felt a little bit like I was just trying to find enough pleasure to get through each day or week but it wasn't really building to anything with deep meaning. I wasn't playing in a band at the time and was feeling lonely and started to write short little songs for tik tok. On January 5th 2023 I posted the first verse and chorus of "Nobody told me" and it didn't go viral or really do anything but it was fun to share with a tiny part of the internet and had some positive responses. It encouraged me to finish the song and now a full year later I'm releasing the full song. The song is about feeling disappointed with how my life turned out. As a kid I imagined myself touring the world as a saxophone player, or working as a professional musician, or doing some wild art projects with my friends as adults and writing musicals and having sleepovers. As a kid I imagined I would be doing something fantastic as an adult and maybe even be a little famous. I didn't' expect to just be driving around, alone in my car. Bored, a little depressed, very much a traditional sad adult. (continue)
