The Mercury Nashville band, Boy Named Banjo, releases its latest track today, “Heart Attack” – Listen HERE. Written by band members William Reames and Barton Davies, Ryan Tyndell (Eric Church, Dierks Bentley) and Jeff Hyde (Eric Church, Jason Aldean), “Heart Attack” is produced by Oscar Charles. The Nashville born and raised quintet includes Barton Davies, Ford Garrard, Sam McCullough, Willard Logan and William Reames.
Boy Named Banjo’s music is a fusion of contemporary country, Americana and folk-rock stacked on a foundation of bluegrass. The new track, “Heart Attack,” was written in 2020. When the guys left the writer’s room that day, the music didn’t quite match the intensity of the lyrics, and the song wasn’t a likely contender for the band to record.
“Almost two years later, Ryan Tyndell pulled the song out and started working on a more upbeat tempo and created a demo for the song,” says Davies. “He played it for us and that’s when the lightbulb went off and we knew we had to record the song, and it turned out to be one of the most fun experiences we’ve had as a band in the studio. We were all drawn to that driving bluegrass lick and felt this song was the perfect song to pay tribute to our grassy roots, while also leaning farther into our progressive country sound.” Adds Reames, “‘Heart In Motion’ is also the perfect vehicle for us to showcase the energy we have when we perform live.”
