Dustin Lynch And The Song That Almost Wasn’t

Posted on: July 9th, 2015 by Chris

Dustin Lynch is reflecting on the success of “Where’s It At” in an interview with “Rolling Stone,” and says he almost didn’t choose it as the lead for his upcoming sophomore album. 

He says “Where’s It At” was finished early in the recording process and he had “got tired of” it by the time it came to make his choice.  Dustin adds that “something magical happened with the guitars” on the track, and it turned out to become “the Cinderella story of the album.” 

“Where’s It At” was certified platinum this week and his latest song “Hell Of A Night” is in the Top 20.

Dierks Bentley has released a new video for “Riser.”  Of the song, Dierks tells Rolling Stone, “I think it’s pretty evident there is a hardcore yearning going on in this song, and personally, it’s something I’ve experienced in the worst of ways in past relationships,” he says of his new song. “This song is about wanting something so badly even if it’s not good for you, just wanting that love back, which is something I think everyone can relate to at some point in their life.”

Kip Moore Scraped Entire Album

Posted on: July 7th, 2015 by Chris

Kip Moore is opening up about his failed song “Dirt Road” and says it forced him to re-do a whole album.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Kip says he decided to “scrap the record and start over” after the song hit a dead end with radio listeners last year. That decision brought about his new single “I’m To Blame,” which will be featured on his upcoming album, “Wild Ones”.

He says after the flop, his writing “morphed” into a different style, and that he wanted to follow that path because he “liked where the body of work was going.” 

“Wild Ones” is due out on August 21st.

Brantley Gilbert Married!

Posted on: June 30th, 2015 by Chris

More than a decade after they first met, Brantley Gilbert has finally married the woman of his dreams.

He and Amber Cochran said their “I do’s” on Sunday (June 28) at his home in Georgia, according to Country Airplay.

Amber is a schoolteacher from his hometown that he dated on and off for years before finally deciding to settle down. He says she’s the one he references in several songs including “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” and “More Than Miles” and describes her as “the one that (almost) got away.”

He told People last November, “I’m a blessed man to have her back in my life and can’t wait to make her my wife.”

Look for the newly weds to show off some new ink soon, too. They told Taste of Country they have plans to have something tattooed on their ring fingers.
