Pandora’s Most Thumbed Up Country Songs of 2016

unnamed-12016 brought an injection of great new songs to country music, and Pandora listeners liked it, enough to give these 25 tracks a total of 38 MILLION thumbs up! Chris Stapleton takes the lead, appearing most frequently on our list, with a year for the history books beginning with his November 2015 CMA Awards performance with Justin Timberlake. Stapleton wasn’t the only break-through this year. The list of top 25 include several new acts who hit it big this year including Cam, Kane Brown, Chris Lane, Jon Pardi, and Cassadee Pope. Look no further for the year’s biggest love songs, break-up songs, drinking songs, and a ray of ‘Humble and Kind’-ness, just in time for the holidays.”

After the release of their debut album, Disguised In Color, Civil Youth has garnered airplay on 134 FM radio stations, landed sync licensing with major networks including MTV, VH1, and E!, and received national press in Alternative Press Magazine.  The band has since released their second full-length album,Who Rescued Who, as well as an acoustic album titled Ossein.

What started as an outlet for lead singer Michael Kepko to express his anxiety and depression while living in Boston, has evolved into a cultural movement backed by a community of thousands of supporters who identify with Civil Youth’s lyrics and music. Civil Youth inhabits each stage with light-up drum solos, crowd chanting, instrument swaps, and stage acrobatics. Between heavy guitar riffs, and poetic rapping, fans of all ages can find a way to connect with Civil Youth. Within a year, Civil Youth has surpassed the caliber of “local band,” making their name known across the United States.
