  • TYLER HUBBARD RELEASES HIS NEW PROJECT, DANCIN’ IN THE COUNTRY, TOMORROW (AUGUST 19TH).

    Tyler Hubbard will release a handful of specially curated songs on Friday (August 19th), titled Dancin’ In The Country, in advance of his upcoming album, which will drop January 27th, 2023, and prior to his live shows this fall on Keith Urban’s THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR.

    “It’s an exciting season,” says Tyler. “Can’t wait to be out with Keith (Urban), and I hope everybody knows these new songs. I wanted to get some more music out before I hit the road with Keith so there was actually some songs out there that the fans can get to know, and these songs are fun and I’m super excited about them.”

    He wrote the title cut, “Dancin’ In The Country,” with Ross Copperman, Jon Nite and Keith Urban, and it was inspired by the nearly nightly dance parties with his family.

    “’Dancin’ In The Country’ is just a really fun, uptempo country song that I’m super excited to play live,” he says. “I was fortunate enough to get to write this with Ross Copperman, Jon Nite and Keith Urban, who’s just incredible as a writer and a guitarist, and he and Ross Copperman really helped capture the feel and emotion of this song sonically and also me and Jon Nite really tried to dial in the lyrics and they were also very helpful with that. But just an incredible day of songwriting and a really cool song that came from it and a song that sounds like nothing else on the project, and honestly, a song that was inspired by these nightly dance parties we’ve been having in my house after dinner. Me and the three kids and my wife we go in the playroom, turn the party lights on just about every night and have a dance party. So, this is one of those songs that always worked in the dance parties  and feels like something that’ll be really fun to take on tour and play live and hopefully get the crowd moving the way the kids do during the dance parties. So, ‘Dancin’ In The Country’ is just a fun one.”

    The new collection includes his smash single, “5 Foot 9,” which is closing in on the Top 10 on the country charts.

    Tyler Hubbard (new season of life) OC: …our life. 1:20

    “It feels exciting. It feels new, and it just feels personal as well. I think that’s a key word that that I really am leaning into, and it’s been fun, and now having this new perspective and this new opportunity for both of us to get to to pick songs and to write songs from our voice and our personal life and kind of let the fans in on a little bit deeper level of who we are personally as an individual, as opposed to a brand or a band is just it’s empowering. It’s really cool. I would say it’s almost forced me to do some self-discovery, you know, and figure out what is my story exactly what do I want to what is my legacy, what do I want my music to say? Because now my name is attached to it, which automatically adds this extra level of like, I don’t know, responsibility, maybe, or maybe pressure at times, but also heart and passion. You know, it really, it just stimulates that makes you want to pour your heart and soul into this stuff and make sure that it’s who you are and what you want to say. And I think that that’s been really healthy for this season of our creative journey or our career. The last ten years have been incredible, but there’s something new and fresh and fun about where we’re both at right now. And we’re just channeling that. And, you know, I hope the fans enjoy getting to be or getting to see a little bit deeper into our life.”

    Written by Hubbard with Corey Crowder and Canaan Smith, “Way Home” was one of the first songs Hubbard wrote after making the decision to pursue a solo career.  The song illustrates the way Hubbard relies on his foundation of faith and “is a traditional country song that can be heard in a church and a honky-tonk,” says Hubbard.

    “For me, this is a personal song, that allows fans to get to know me on an even deeper level,” adds Hubbard. “This song is a reflection on where I’ve been, where I am now, and where I’m headed. It’s become my personal reminder, on a regular basis, of who’s really driving this truck we call life. Thank God it ain’t me.”

    Listen to “Way Home” HERE 

    Chorus:

    Well, they say that life is a highway

    And I’ve put some miles on mine

    More than one time, I took the wrong two-lane

    Just lettin’ my horses run wild

    Yeah, I got lost (yeah, I got lost)

    Until I got found (until I got found)

    Oh, and now that it’s well with my soul

    I just ride in the seat next to Jesus

    ‘Cause I know He knows the way home

    Tyler Hubbard (Way Home) OC: …from the heart. :46
    “’Way Home’ is a special song that I wrote with a couple of my great buddies, Canaan Smith and Corey Crowder. And this is one of the first songs that I had wrote after I decided to be a solo artist and to really shift my perspective in writing rooms to specifically to trying to write for me and my project and my album, and kind of capture my voice and what I want to say and tell the world my story. This is a song that does just that. It’s kind of autobiographical and tells the world and tells the fans kind of where I came from and where I’m at and where I’m headed, and also just a reminder to stay in the passenger seat and let Jesus drive and he’s in control and knows where we’re headed. So, anytime I feel like I’m leaning over and trying to grab the wheel, I’m just reminded of who’s in control and who needs to stay in control. So, this is a special song, from the heart.”

  • TYLER HUBBARD SENT”5 FOOT 9″ TO THE COUNTRY SUPERSTAR HE NAMECHECKS IN THE SONG.

    Tyler Hubbard is closing in on Top 20 on the country charts with his debut solo single, “5 Foot 9.” In the chorus of the song, he namechecks one of country music’s biggest superstars, Tim McGraw.

    God makes five foot nine, brown eyes, and a sundress
    Loves Tim McGraw and a small town accent
    Ain’t no way that me and this truck made her fall in love
    Jack makes good whiskey but God makes the good stuff
    Oh, God makes the good stuff

    Since he calls out Tim and has mad respect for the singer-actor, he wanted to send the song to him before it was released.

    “He was a huge impact on my music and my career. A big influence,” says Tyler. “And also, yeah, I mean, I’ve worked with him recently. I’ve really grown to love him and admire and respect who he is and how he handles himself and how he runs his business. And so, yeah, I sent it to him actually a few weeks ago and said, ‘Hey, I just want you to have a heads up. My first single is going to have a shout out to you. And it you know, I want you to hear it first for me, but I highly respect you and what you stand for and who you are and and just want you to know I love you. And this is this is coming out soon.’”

    The two collaborated last year on the song “Undivided,” which was written by Tyler and Chris Loocke.

    Tyler also recently released the song “35s,” which is from his upcoming solo project.

    AJ (fave 4th of July memory) OC: …very cool. :58
    Well, this one is hard to beat. A couple of years ago, maybe longer than that now, I had an old boat in Florida. It’s like an old antique motor yacht, and it was kind of a cool old boat. I had taken that boat, I’ve always wanted to take it up north like to New York and up in that area, up in the northeast where it’s so pretty. So, we took the boat up there and Denise and the girls, we all went up. They like going to New York City, which I don’t really care about going to the city. So, I got to stay in my boat there at the harbor tied up, which was cool anyway. So they spent time in the city a few days and then that was Fourth of July, and we went out in the Hudson River that night and they shot the fireworks off and we were anchored out in front of the Statue of Liberty and New York City was behind us, and the Statue of Liberty and the fireworks were going off sitting on that boat. That was the coolest thing and my girls still talk about that. I mean, that was the coolest thing on Fourth of July I can ever remember. I can’t top that one probably. It was emotional sitting there watching the Statue of Liberty and thinking about all that. It was very cool.”

    “My best memories would be hanging out with my mom, brother and sister on the beach on Tybee Island right off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. We’d go there every year, and we’d light our own fireworks and watch the ones that they had for us. They were the best times, some of the best times of my life.”

    Carrie Underwood (favorite Fourth of July memory) OC: …work out. :51
    “I think my favorite Fourth of July memory would be going to the fireworks stand and picking out which fireworks I wanted to do. I must’ve been like 7 or 8, and I came home and made a list of what order I wanted to do them in, because I wanted to put a show on for Mom and Dad, and of course I couldn’t wait until it was dark outside (laughs). So, I made my Mom and Dad get the lawn chairs and come out to the backyard and watch some not very dramatic fireworks at like six o’clock in the evening, but I was so proud of myself, and I was so proud of the show that I put on. So, I feel like that was a little training for what I do now – putting on shows, figuring out how it’s all going to work out.”

    “The Fourth of July for me, growing up we would always go to the lake, we didn’t live on the lake but we would all go to the lake. Had a buddy who had a pontoon and we would always get on the pontoon and you go out and you’d tie all the pontoons together and just have a big time. This was before, I was younger then, the adults were having more fun than we were, you know it was just to go swim in the water and shoot off fireworks. Basically, water tailgating is what it was. And then as we got older, same thing…we would just, us younger kids had our own boat and we had as much fun as the adults.”

We’re usually playing shows, or we’re out on the lake or at the beach, or sometimes I’ve said, ‘I’m staying at home,’ shooting fireworks off the back porch or something. That’s probably not the safest thing, but we have a good time either way.”

All the individual families had a lot of competition with each other and tried to outdo each other to try to see who had the biggest and baddest fireworks and all that. [laughs] My daddy, I think, was the smartest one. He just went out and bought maybe $25 worth of fireworks and let everybody else put on the big show, so he saved a lot of money.” [laughs]

    “1989 was the first year I came to the States, and it had always been my goal, but I had no plan on how to get here. It was just a case of keep playing, keep getting better at what you do, and then hopefully, somehow, some way I’ll end up over here. The guy who was managing me at the time, we just planned a trip over here – it was actually for the New Music Seminar in New York. And we came over for that, and then we did a trip down to Nashville, and I was shopping my little demo around. I think I humored everybody more than anything else [laughs] with my tragic, ill-fitting demo for the time. So, I left there, but I was just so committed to coming back as quick as I could.”

But, it was always a great memory, and I miss not getting to do that as much as we used to.”

We always do it far away and then we light it, and we always run back and watch the fireworks, but that’s probably one of my favorite memories.” MADDIE: “My birthday is July 7th, so I always get built-in fireworks for my birthday, and sometimes we actually celebrate it on the 4th, because there’s fireworks everywhere, so it’s perfect.”

    “My favorite Fourth of July memories growing up are actually kind of dangerous now that I think about it, but we used to have fireworks wars where we’d shoot like roman candles and bottle rockets. We’d always go to my grandma’s house, pop fireworks and we’d end up shooting ’em at each other and having wars; no eye protection, no nothing, just shooting bottle rockets at each other’s faces. But it was so fun; some of the best days of my life.”

But over in Alabama, that’s where all the firework stands were, and we only had to drive 10, 15 minutes to get to the Alabama line, so we could go get a bundle of fireworks pretty easy. But he would always take a lot of pride in going and finding all the good stuff and coming back with a big pile. He’d have his torch out there at the end of the driveway and we’d all eat homemade ice cream and put down towels on the driveway and he’d shoot off fireworks for 30-45 minutes. Such a good time.”

    “Fourth of July in Warner Robins, Georgia is an event. It’s something else. In fact, forever they’ve thrown an Independence Day concert, and back in the day, it was huge. It was the biggest thing they did all year. They would actually have the concert in the MAC (McConnell-Talbert Stadium), which was the high school football stadium that Warner Robins and Northside and Houston County shared. I mean, one year they had Wynonna play and then they had Josh Turner one year, Darius Rucker. I mean it was like a big deal, and there’d be 15,000, 20,000 people there, and I think it’s so cool that there’s a little bit of a legacy of people coming together in that town and making something happen, you know? I’ll never forget going to those shows and thinking, I was more proud of what the city had done. I was like, ‘That’s just so cool that they could put together a show like this, an event that everybody will love.”

  • TYLER HUBBARD RELEASES ANOTHER NEW SONG, “35s.”

    Tyler Hubbard has released a new song, titled “35s.” He says the song, which he co-wrote a couple of years ago with his buddies Jordan Schmidt and Michael Tyler, has become sort of an anthem in his home to remind him to slow down and enjoy the good stuff.

    “‘35s’ is a fun song I wrote a couple of years back, and it’s honestly all about slowing down, living life to the fullest, being present and just letting the good things kind of sink in,” says the Georgia native. “For me, I’m guilty of running too fast, living a little too fast, trying to be too productive and check all the boxes, and I just needed a little reminder to slow down and let life sink in every now and then. So, that’s kind of the heart and soul behind this song. It’s also a rocker. It feels good and it kind of makes you want to do everything but slow down, but I hope you love it as much as I do.”

    Tyler’s “35’s” is from his highly anticipated solo project. The new song follows his debut radio single, “5 Foot 9,” which is currently Top 30 and climbing the country radio airplay charts.
