Courtney Jaye Embraces a Bright “New Day”


Courtney Jaye’s new album Love and Forgiveness is a pleasing pop affair that calls to mind the peaceful, easy feeling of ‘70s FM radio. Scheduled for a May 7 release, it’s bound to be one of the most enjoyable records to come out of Nashville this year. On the album’s final track, “New Day,” the sprawling pedal steel guitar almost sounds like clouds lifting. That’s no coincidence. Love and Forgiveness was inspired by a deeply broken heart. Luckily things are looking up, judging from the album’s thoughtful lyrics, bright melodies and optimistic title. Enjoy the CMT Edge world premiere of Courtney Jaye’s “New Day.”
