This week in country music, artists paid homage to their hometown roots, stayed up way too late, bravely faced the future and even tipped their hats to the King himself. Read on to hear all the latest tunes!

Ryan Bingham, "Jingle and Go": 

Ryan Bingham is paying homage to his his East Texas roots in his latest single, "Jingle and Go." Specifically, Bingham's new song honors the roadhouse bars in which he learned his craft, and shines a light on those who came before him. “It’s a song I had in the can about the days when I used to sit in the corner of these roadhouse bars playing for tips,” Bingham explains to CMT. “I did not really have much to my name other than a guitar, a bag and an old truck. But everybody has that thing that makes you jingle and go.” “Jingle and Go” appears on Bingham’s forthcoming blues-meets-country album, American Love Song, which is set for release on Feb. 15. -- CC

Sarah Buxton, "Only the Truth":

Kansas native Sarah Buxton enrolled in Belmont University and moved to Nashville well over a decade ago, and over the course of that time, she has pursued music as an artist in her own right as well as penning hits for country stars such as Keith Urban and Chris Lane. While Buxton' musical career has taken her on a roller coaster ride through the ups and downs of being in the business, her newest song, "Only the Truth," displays an unshakable optimism as she looks towards what is coming next. "Stand with me baby, we don't have to fear it," she sings in the chorus of the song, "It's only the truth." -- CL

TG Sheppard, "I Wanna Live Like Elvis":

Attention TG Sheppard and Elvis Presley fans: After more than 20 years, Sheppard has a brand-new single to share, inspired by the King of Rock and Roll -- who also happened to be one of Sheppard’s friends. In “I Wanna Live Like Elvis,” Sheppard possesses a certain swagger as he lists off the things he wants to do to be just like Presley. "I was compelled to record “I Wanna Live Like Elvis” in honor of my long-time friendship with him, and because the writers were able to capture so much of his life story in just four minutes in a clever and comical way that hasn't been done before,” explains Sheppard in a press release. The song has even earned the praise of Presley’s widow, Priscilla, who says that she thinks the song “has a catchy beat, great lyrics and is cleverly written.” "I Wanna Live Like Elvis" will be included on Sheppard's upcoming full-length album, the details of which have not yet been announced. -- CC

Olivia Lane, "Hey 3AM":

Olivia Lane shines a light on the darkness and loneliness of insomnia and the stress it can bring in "Hey 3AM," telling a story that the singer -- who often has trouble sleeping herself -- knows all too well. "'Hey 3AM' is one of the most personal songs I've written. I'm a night owl and sometimes it can be hard to turn my brain off at night because my thoughts are so loud," Lane admits in a press release. "This song is an ode to that frustration, but it's also about making the decision to just go to bed. Stressing never does any good." -- CL
