With a new music video, “Up In Lights,” released this month, #WomenCrushItWednesdays co-host Melanie Meriney is listening to:

Break Up in The End (Cole Swindell) — the lyrics are sooo relatable and it’s one of those rare feel good sad songs;

Happy Birthday (Kelleigh Bannen) — also relatable and about the feelings you still carry after a break up;

Goodbye Summer (Danielle Bradbury & Thomas Rhett) — their voices are incredible together and it’s extremely catchy;

Hotel Key (Old Dominion) — so catchy and just gives you a positive sing-along vibe;

Army Ranger (Jessie G)- I know I’m biased, but Jessie’s voice is so unique and the message is very unifying and uplifting towards our military families and troops! (Editor’s side note: Melanie co-wrote the song with Jessie.)
