Travis Denning is building upon the momentum of a breakthrough year, releasing more new music as he drops fan-favorite track “Goodyears” today, available to listen here. Co-written by Denning with Tony Martin and Cole Taylor, as well as produced by Jeremy Stover, the cruising nature of “Goodyears” and its clever double entendre has captured fans’ attention since Denning began performing the song during his live set. With a relatable message of appreciating the simple things in life more timely than ever, Denning is officially sharing the track as a direct response to fan requests to release the song.

Denning was just nominated for CMT “Breakthrough Video Of The Year” for his first No. One and GOLD-certified single with the “shadowy” (Rolling Stone) “After A Few.” Denning will perform the track on the upcoming 2020 CMT Music Awards airing on CMT on 10/21 at 7pm CT. Accelerating his ascend from a chart-topping single, Denning also just released his “upbeat, raucous” (American Songwriter) official new single “Where That Beer’s Been,” available at country radio now. Both tracks are taken from his recently-released debut EP BEER’S BETTER COLD that debuted in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart.

“This song has always been somewhat of a creed for me,” shared Denning. “I was raised by two parents who believed the good in life isn’t given, it’s earned. I grew up surrounded by people who knew that, and knew that sometimes the things we work for don’t come easy. There’s no denying the bad times make the good even better. But when they do come, we sure know how to stop and take it all in. I think that’s something we can all relate to right now.”

A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, singer/songwriter Travis Denning first made waves showcasing his “future star power” (Billboard) with the release of his Top 40 debut single “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs.” Denning kicked off 2020 as direct support on Dustin Lynch’s STAY COUNTRY TOUR and has previously opened shows for Cole Swindell, Alan Jackson, LANCO, Riley Green and his first headlining “Heartbeat Of A Small Town Tour.” With over 340 million streams worldwide, Denning has been spotlighted for his head-turning sound and was selected this past year as an Opry NextStage recipient and CMA KixStart Artist, as he makes his mark within the industry. Inspired at a young age, Denning developed a love for country, pop, rock and heavy metal and started playing local bars from the age of 16, as he built a strong following from his distinctive songs and raucous guitar solos. A prolific writer with an unquestionable stage presence, Denning moved to Nashville and secured outside cuts by Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Michael Ray and more. Denning’s newest songwriting cut includes Michael Ray’s Top 20 single “Her World Or Mine.” For more information, visit

Travis Denning (Goodyears) OC: …is about. :34
“I wrote this song in 2016 and recorded it in 2017. It was a big part of my live shows, and I’ve always been asked when I was gonna release this song. Initially, I was gonna wait for a full-length album, but things are just crazy right now and I figured why not and go ahead and give to the fans, you know? I think people just relate to this song. I think everybody’s been in a position where times are tough and everything’s looking kind of discouraging. But I think country music fans and country music lovin’ people are tougher in tough times, and they know how to get through it and that’s really what this song is about.”
