“I’m so excited to be releasing an acoustic version of ‘5 Foot 9’,” says Hubbard. “I’m humbled by the response we’ve seen from fans over the past few months. Hearing crowds singing the words back to me on tour has been an incredible experience. For this acoustic version, we started from scratch and really broke down the instrumentation and tempo to give it a different feel. We ended up with an interpretation that we hope brings a new emotion to the song.”
Hubbard will make his Grand Ole Opry debut (as a solo artist) on Friday, November 11. Tickets are available HERE.
Tyler Hubbard’s first six-song project, Dancin’ In The Country, debuted with over 10,000 SPS units (sales plus streaming) making it the second best-selling country EP debut of the year. Dancin’ In The Country also debuted at No.1 on the Heatseekers Albums chart, No. 6 on the Current Country Albums sales chart, and No. 107 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Billboard says of the debut collection, “The singer-songwriter has offered a promising collection of six tracks on Dancin’ In The Country, which make good use of his pliable voice and storytelling panache by supporting them with full-bodied production.” Since releasing his debut single, Hubbard has released eight unofficial music videos.
