CJ Solar, "Airplane"
Instead of gazing upward dreaming of a jet-engine escape from his "dot on the map" small town, CJ Solar is focused on what's down below and right in front of him: a relationship burning so furiously that it's visible from 30,000 feet. The mid-tempo ballad is a change of pace for the Southern-rocking – and underrated – songwriter, who also has a hit on his hands with Morgan Wallen's "Up Down." "Airplane" though is all Solar's vehicle, a performance so full of bombast and confidence that, unlike jet trails, it won't fade from your memory quickly. J.H.
