In the past several years, there has been a tremendous shift in popular music. If there is a gap in genres and style, producers and executives plan to fill said gap to maximize listeners and sales alike. The same can be said of country music.

Artists like Chris Stapleton and Kacey Musgraves have made their mark in similar ways in this particular market by simply filling in for the original sound of country that some say the genre has been lacking. Some artists, like newcomer Erica Bryan, have a much different take.

Bryan, currently a Nashville resident originally from the suburbs of Atlanta, describes her sound as “dark, southern soul.” This modern meets rustic feel is exactly what country music needs. Her wide range of sound and taste make her a prime candidate to be on the radio, and that is exactly why I think she just might make it. And here's why.

We can all agree that a lot of music struggles to find its integrity. This is not a problem for Bryan though. Let me tell something, Bryan’s music subtly screams sincerity. It has an honesty to it that allows you to fall into the music and believe every word. This songwriter is not trying too hard or too little, and that is something special.

Her debut single, “Jericho,” which launched Mar. 31, is my personal favorite out of her upcoming EP. (I was able to get the hook up and listen to her entire EP last week.) The record is co-written with her producer, Tommy Harden, but Bryan had been holding onto the idea for this song for three years now.

“I walked circles around Music Row and started praying that doors would be open for me in Nashville,” says Bryan. “While I was walking around Music Row and praying, I felt like Joshua walking around Jericho and that is where the song idea of ‘Jericho’ came to life.”

With Bryan being a self-funded and self-managing artist, she has a unique freedom that allows her to execute and deliver her work with the utmost artistic integrity. This can be a little bit daunting since she is the one investing in her career, not a multi-billion dollar record label.

If you have not already listened to the song above, hit the play button. "Jericho" is now available on iTunes for just 99 cents. Bryan is also set to release a full EP in early July featuring seven full-length songs (the songs I have already heard and fallen in love with). She will feature these songs at her album release show at Smith's Olde Bar in Atlanta on July 1. You can also follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all things Erica Bryan.

Now go buy her single and lets make Bryan famous you guys.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
