Keith Urban Streaming New Single 'Parallel Line'

(Radio.com) Country star Keith Urban has shared an online stream of a new track called "Parallel Line," which was co-written by Ed Sheeran and a team of big-name songwriters.

Sheeran collaborator Amy Wadge, Snow Patrol frontman Johnny McDaid, Julia Michaels and Benjamin Levin also worked on the tune, which is the first single from Urban's upcoming album, Graffiti U.

"I just loved the song the very first time I heard it it just struck me as one of those kinds of songs that comes along very, very rarely," Urban said in a prepared statement. "I grabbed my guitar, started playing it and it just fit. It felt so right for me and I was just anxious to get in the studio and get to work on it."

Urban's ninth studio album, Graffiti U, is scheduled for release later this year. Check out the new song here.

Zedd And Maren Morris Have New Collaboration 'The Middle'

(Radio.com) Pop music makes for the most unlikely bedfellows. Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey (brothers Kyle and Michael Trewartha) have come together for a new song, "The Middle."

All three of the artists hit social media to promote the forthcoming single, which is set to debut on Jan. 23. Zedd even went so far as to post a 16-second "teaser" on YouTube with no audio at all.

It would appear that we'll all have to wait until Jan. 23 to hear how this country/pop/EDM collaboration will sound--and to see if it's a cover of the 2001 Jimmy Eat World song of the same name. Read more here.

Singled Out: Sammi Rae Murciano

Young up and coming pop singer Sammi Rae Murciano recently released her new EP "The Story" and to celebrate we asked her to tell us about the tracks including the anti-bullying anthem "Reflection". Here is the story:

My EP "The Story" truly tells my story and I hope to inspire others.
Having gone through being bullied however, I turned my hardship into "Reflection", which looks back at my personal experiences.

"The line in the song 'living everyday not knowing what was going to happen or be' shows everything I've gone through getting up each and every day." But having been bullied has given me the inspiration to help others that are going through the same thing. "There are many stories you hear about people being bullied and how they resort to harmful and drastic measures which could lead to dangerous outcomes." I had the perfect outlet to channel my own pain, I had my singing to turn to and it's only made me stronger. As a way to escape from the feelings of being hurt, bullied, and hated on, I started writing in my journal...which turned into a source for songs that told my story".

The second song in my EP is "Back To Me." I wrote this song after the hardships I faced with bullying. The inspiration came from learning to trust and love again after being hurt and let down. The line in the song "can you bring me back to life" shows that I was so broken down that I wanted to move forward and find the strength to trust and love people again.

The third song in my EP is called "Never Letting Go." This song sums up my EP in the sense that you should never let go of what you want and never give up because anything is possible. Through everything I had gone through no matter what, I knew that I was never going to give up on my dream. I want this song to inspire others, no one should let what anyone says stop them from going for what they want. A line in the song that is so important to me is, "Take the risk or the chance to lose it all, let the burning desire go," meaning you should always take a chance on anything that you believe in. For me I took the chance to live my dreams and pursue what I love to do which is singing. This is my story, and I'm glad that I am able to share it with the world in hopes to inspire and help others.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!

Thomas Rhett Reveals The Advice For His Younger Self

(Radio.com) Thomas Rhett is one of the hottest artists on the country music scene right now, but if he could go back in time, what advice would he give to his younger self?

"I would just tell myself not to worry as much," the "Marry Me" singer revealed via a press release. "It's so easy as an artist to just think that every little moment is going to be your downfall, whether you cut the wrong song, or a song didn't go top 10."

"Obviously those things can affect your career, but I think I would go back and tell myself like, 'Dude, just chill out and enjoy yourself rather than just always worrying about what's to come.' You know, really trying to sit there and enjoy the good things when they happen." Read more here.
