The summer heatwave comes a with a splash of country music before the days grow shorter and the kids return to school. The new country music releases for August 2012 are no exception. While July had so many country superstars with new country music releases that it was difficult to decide where to spend your money, August has just four that look promising. 

Colt Ford releases his next studio album on August 7, and if the new single ‘Back‘ is representative of what’s to come, fans can expect more of what made the big man famous. Dustin Lynch and JT Hodges are also releasing new albums for August 2012. Hodges releases ‘JT Hodges’ — featuring songs like ‘Hunt You Down’ — and Lynch releases his self-titled debut, featuring the hit ‘Cowboys and Angels.’ Blackberry Smoke will also release new music in August 2012.
