Under the heading ‘16 Songs We’re Loving This Spring,’ Warner Bros. Records’ Michael Ray’s debut single, “Kiss You In the Morning,” has been added to Entertainment Weekly’s spring playlist. “It’s been a long, long winter. But spring is finally in the air – And so are fresh new tracks,” says EW, who also spotlights new songs from Madonna, Kendrick Lamar and Kelly Clarkson – with Ray’s “Kiss” named the only country song on the list.
If early interest is any indication, Blake Shelton has another hit on the way. Shelton’s slinky new single “Sangria” is the most added song at country radio this week, a quick start that follows a record 14 consecutive No. 1 hits for reigning and five time CMA Male Vocalist of the Year. The song was already Top 50 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart last week even though it hadn’t yet been officially released.
