Travis Denning released two new songs today, celebrating his fiancé just weeks ahead of his upcoming wedding. The songs are a surprise to his future wife, Madison Montgomery. “Second Best Thing,” was written by Denning, Nathan Spicer and Scooter Carusoe and “New Year’s Kiss,” which is a peek into their relationship, was written by Denning, Shane McAnally and Nathan Spicer. Both tracks were produced by Jeremy Stover and Paul DiGiovanni.
The pair of songs were written a while ago, but Travis saved them to put out at the right moment. He thought they would be a great pre-wedding surprise for Madison, who will hear them today, along with fans, for the first time.
“I’m not necessarily the best gift giver, but I always like to think that I can express the way I feel best when I write,” said Travis. “That’s definitely the case with me and Madison and our relationship, and my love for her. These songs felt like a nice gift that I wanted to give to her and show Madison and the world how much she means to me. She does not know these are coming out today, so I’m hoping that she really enjoys the surprise. Madison is pretty smart though, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she, is onto me.”

Travis Denning (writing 2 songs for Madison) OC: …that way. :40
“I had the title ‘Second Best Thing’ I think right when me and Madison started dating and really started getting serious. It’s funny to look back that I wrote a song about getting married that early in our relationship, but for as creepy as that might sound (laughs), I mean, it’s just the truth. I knew really fast that we were going to spend the rest of our life together, and then I later wrote ‘New Year’s Kiss’ just recalling that kind of initial moment that I knew we’d probably end up being more than just friends. I recorded them a while ago and have just been holding on for the right moment to put them out, and I wanted this to kind of feel like a gift to her, and I hope it comes off that way.”
Travis Denning (hopes Madison is surprised) OC: …on to me. :19
“I’m planning on just not even telling her they’re coming out. I just hope she wakes up on the morning they’re released, and she sees the post and I hope she’s really surprised. She’s heard ‘Second Best Thing’ before and she loved it. She cried a little bit when I first played it for her, and so she knows I recorded it a long time ago. Hopefully, she’s not on to me.”
