On this week’s edition of Sidelines FM, we played a mix of Grammy winners, Nashville favorites and new releases.

We kicked things off with Kendrick Lamar‘s “These Walls,” which took home a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at this year’s ceremony. Lamar, who was nominated 11 times, also took home Best Rap Album, Song and Performance, in addition to Best Music Video for his remix of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.”

Fellow winners Alabama Shakes and Chris Stapleton made their way into our playlist this week, with “Sound & Color” and “Might As Well Get Stoned,” respectively. Stapleton is one of six Nashville artists playing the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival this summer, along with Bully, Natalie Prass and others.

We also played new singles from Sturgill Simpson, Lissie and Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes.
