New Top 10s
NEW Broadjam Top 10 Charts:  Iowa, Montana      

Get a feel for the "simple life" from the gifted songwriters on this week's Top 10 charts. In Iowa, they work hard but play even harder. Prepare to be rocked out of your work boots and into your dancing shoes for the country nightlife. Then sit back and hear the tale of a place where relationships are meaningful and the past worth remembering.

Don’t be deceived by the name, Swansongs is anything but elegant or pretentious. The song “KNOGGIN POUNDIN” perfectly describes what Swan Burrus' solo project is all about – getting down and shaking loose.  With forceful downbeats and an unforgettable hook, beware of impulsive fits of singing along. The song actually comes with its own disclaimer: “I’m sorry if you’re drownin’ in my sea of knoggin poundin’!”  But we forgive Swansongs; head bumping never felt so good!

Open your heart to Adam Nelson’s introspective “I’m Still the Same Man." Touching on existential topics including friendship, love and time, Nelson provides a hopeful, yet deeply nostalgic perspective of life. The passionate baritone harmony is guided by a cello, which flows seamlessly with the soft percussion and bright piano. Like a beautiful Montana sunset, this song will leave you with the conflicting feelings of adoration and sadness.

Check out all the great music on Broadjam's newest Top 10 charts!
