EMI Records Nashville recording artist Tyler Hubbard continues the release of new music as he unveils his latest track “Way Home” from his highly anticipated solo project. The new song follows his debut radio single, “5 Foot 9,” which is currently Top 25 and climbing the country radio airplay charts. Also, previously announced, Hubbard will be joining Keith Urban on tour this fall, performing his new solo music for the first time on tour.
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 |
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
Bringing his trademark high-energy performance style, Hubbard will join Keith Urban and previously announced special guest Ingrid Andress on “The Speed Of Now World Tour,” beginning September 3rd at The Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA. The fall tour dates will run through November. For information on where to get tickets go to www.tylerhubbardofficial.com.
Hubbard’s debut solo single, “5 Foot 9,” which Billboard calls a “promising introduction to Hubbard’s solo music,” and MusicRow says is the “soundtrack song for summer,” has over 40M global streams. The song quickly moved inside the Top 50 on the streaming chart in its first four weeks of release and is solidly inside the Top 25 at radio. “5 Foot 9” currently is No. 19 on the Spotify Top 200 and the single has landed on TikTok’s Top 5 U.S. sounds with over 254K creations to date. It has also placed No. 7 on the Shazam Top Country Chart and sits at No. 87 on the Shazam Top 200 USA Chart. Hubbard’s latest song, “35’s,” entered the Spotify Top 200 Country Chart just two weeks after launch and has over 1.5M total global streams.
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.”
