CMM’s January Playlist Featuring Our 2015 “Ones to Watch”

January’s playlist is dedicated to 10 artists we think you should keep your eyes and ears out for in 2015. Some of these names will surely ring a bell as they have had some hit singles like Maddie & Tae and Natalie Stovall and the Drive. Other artists may be new to your radar, and an artist like Chris Stapleton was chosen because in our opinion he has one of the best voices in the business, has written countless hits for others and we know a solo album from him would be AMAZING…and we are patiently (actually impatiently) waiting for it. We think this group of artists is capable of REALLY BIG things this year and we look forward to what they will be doing.
