To celebrate the release of Ryan Connolly’s debut single “Riding This Town”, the emerging Ontario-based country music singer-songwriter curated a brand new curated Spotify playlist featuring songs that inspired the new track that you can stream below.
Note: All songs written by Jason Aldean
This song inspired the whole concept of the chorus and the references of trains throughout the song.
Tattoos on this town
I think that this song title just paints such a small town feel. We all have the places and the faces that paint our childhood. I just used it in the literal sense of burning the place up with tire marks.
Such a visual that connects with anyone listening. Whether you have seen it with your own eyes or have only seen pictures, there is a nostalgia to it.
This is one of my favourite early Jason Aldean tracks. Such a great tune and I felt like it lended a great deal of significance to the storyline of the song.
One of Jason’s biggest hits…how could I not reference it especially talking about cars and freedom.
Burning it Down
This one was a perfect rhyme after “Driving Around”! Haha
The conclusion to the song…”We Back” means I’m back and I ain’t going anywhere!
This is the first song I ever heard from Jason. Great riff, great energy, and a perfect hook to grab the small town-ers!
This Nothin Town
We all say we want to scram at some point in our lives. Whether we are running away from lovers, haters, or repetition … We have all been there.
The most iconic name in the country genre … The Man in Black deserved a spot in this track!
“Wheels Rollin'” is “the dream” for me in this business. The ambience of live music is why I am chasing it. I want to smell it, breathe it, and live it every day of my life. The connection between the audience and the artist is not Replicable. A guitar circus on wheels in cowboy boots is the way I wanna roll. “Kick it” he just always says … Like “ya Mamma” he does it all the time and it makes me laugh every-time! Haha
