Photo Credit: Jeremy CowartJerrod Niemann has already released several songs about drinking, including "One More Drinkin' Song," so he wasn't exactly thrilled when he saw the title of a new song, "Drink to That All Night," in an e-mail from his songwriter pal Lance Miller a few months back.

Jerrod says, "I was like, 'Man, come on. Just because it's a drinking song doesn't mean you have to send it to me.' Surely, how different can it be? And then I listened to it. I thought, 'Woah, this is something else.'"

Jerrod then sent the feel-good song to his producer, and they recorded it for his new album, High Noon. A big part of the song's success can be credited to the driving drum beat throughout the track.

"This is a song that definitely gets you in the mood for the weekend," Jerrod explains. "It just gives this driving feel, and when it's five o'clock on Friday and you're ready to crank it up, that's what you need is something to knock you out of your chair."

Go to JerrodNiemannOfficial.com to see where he'll be playing "Drink to That All Night" next.

RCA NashvilleMiranda Lambert is one of country music's biggest stars these days, so her schedule is non-stop between recording, touring, doing interviews and scheduling quality time with husband, Blake Shelton. In all that madness, Miranda has to remind herself to slow down and reflect on how amazing the last few years have been. That's part of the inspiration for her latest hit, "Automatic."

Says Miranda, "I'm getting to where I've lived a little more. I've done some things. I have a long way to go, but I also am realizing that it's very fast-paced this life that I'm living right now, and the life that we're all living."

Miranda thinks of "Automatic" as a mental scrapbook helping her hold on to some precious memories.

"It's always about the next. The next place, the next show, the next event. Whatever's happening. And it's never about right now or what we did five years ago," Miranda says. "It's like, 'Remember that time?' I just want to make sure I'm enjoying this."

"Automatic" is the lead single from Miranda's upcoming album, Platinum, due out June 3.

Warner Music NashvilleIf the cold snap affecting a good chunk of the country has got you down, just turn on Brett Eldredge's  beach-inspired hit, "Beat of the Music." The song has been heating up the country chart for a while now, but Brett is thankful "Beat of the Music" is headed towards #1 a lot faster than his debut hit, "Don't Ya."

Brett tells ABC News Radio, "'Don't Ya' took like 47 weeks to reach the top of the chart, which was great, 'cause it got people to know me. And soon as they heard 'Beat of the Music,' they knew that was me."

"Beat of the Music" has been getting just as big a reaction as "Don't Ya" during Brett's concerts lately.

Explaining the new song's success, Brett says, "It takes you to a special place, I think. You don't have to think too much. You just gotta feel good. And I like to be 'Mr. Feel Good' sometimes."

"Beat of the Music" and "Don't Ya" are both included on Brett's debut album, Bring You Back.
