With their debut single “Smoke” lighting a fire at radio, country-rock outfit A Thousand Horses have released a video for the woozy ballad.

Music Industry Execs Sees Vinyl Rise as More ‘Fad’ Than ‘Explosion’

Last year’s 52 percent jump in vinyl sales has been fantastic for record stores — “and growing more important by the day,” Carl Mello, senior buyer for New England music chain Newbury Comics tells Rolling Stone  — but the record industry  isn’t quite so enthusiastic. The vinyl explosion has been so pronounced that pressing plants can’t keep up with demand, putting retailers in the awkward position of running out of hit LPs such as Taylor Swift’s 1989 , Sam Smith’s In the Lonely Hour and even Jack White’s Lazaretto , which sold more than 86,000 copies and was 2014’s best-selling vinyl album. Streaming and Vinyl Up, Album Sales Down in 2014 But managers and record labels clearly see vinyl as a fad — vinyl makes up just 6 percent of overall album sales, according to Nielsen Soundscan.

Hear Carrie Underwood’s ‘Waiting All Day for a Super Bowl Fight’

Two days before the Big Game, the NFL has released Carrie Underwood’s “Waiting All Day for a Super Bowl Fight,” Super Bowl XLIX’s official theme song. Country Music Fans’ Guide to the Super Bowl Stacked high with synthesizers, power chords and banjo, “Waiting All Day for a Super Bowl Fight” is a reworked version of NBC’s Sunday Night Football theme, which Underwood began singing during the 2013 season. Previous Sunday Night Football vocalists include Faith Hill, who logged six years with the show, and Pink, who originated the theme song in 2006. Although the lyrics tend to change with each season, all versions of the theme song are based on Joan Jett and the Blackhearts’ 1988 hit,  “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” much in the same way that ABC’s Monday Night Football theme was based on a revised recording of Hank Williams, Jr.’s “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight,” from 1989 to 2011.  Hill made several appearances at the Super Bowl between 2007 and 2012, performing the theme song before kickoff
