Songs You Should Hear: Cameron Floyd Finds a New Sound; Leilani Kilgore Breaks Your Heart

To say we’re pumped about a fresh new year of music and possibilities is an understatement. We’re already seeing the submission form fill up with new reasons for excitement in 2022, and we can’t wait to keep digging in!

With that said, we have some songs from later in 2021 that still need to receive their proper UMC love. So, Jenna and I have teamed up once again to present some of those as…

UMC50: 50 Can’t Miss Songs from 2021

UMC family, we love you. We’re thankful to have made it another year together, through the inherent challenges of the times. And, even though this has been an especially wacky holiday season, we want to make sure we leave you with one more parting gift before we say hello to new possibilities in 2022.

That parting gift is this year’s UMC50 playlist.

We scoured our UMC20 Best Of playlists — and our other UMC20 playlists, for months where there wasn’t a “Best Of” (2021 was weird, y’all) — for 50 tracks that we feel paint a picture of the musical year that was. You’ll hear variety. You’ll hear some things you don’t expect. You’ll see familiar names on the list, as well as first-time inclusions in our now-annual tradition.

It was important to us to get this to you. We hope you enjoy it as you reflect on 2021, and celebrate what is to come in the year ahead.

Well, we’re back with another one! Jenna and I compiled a few tunes to take you into your weekend, and we must not delay any further. Here are some…

UMC20: All of the Sounds (Oct. 12, 2021)

It took more time to come up with a headline for this installment of UMC20 than it took to construct the playlist itself. That’s because this one — and let’s be real, most installments of UMC20 — can’t be put into a single box.

A lot of these songs are here to feature artists on upcoming NashLive! shows, sure. However, that’s not all she wrote — we have some other fun surprises that we’ve snuck in, just for fun.

We’ll let you hunt through and find something you like. Get to it!
