MCA Nashville/Republic Records dynamic duo YA’BOYZ brought their signature party-starting energy to Bridgestone Arena on Saturday (5/7), performing their song “WOO WOO,” which has been named the official 2022 playoff anthem of the Nashville Predators. Fans can hear “WOO WOO” again during tonight’s match up, and any future Predators games broadcast on Bally Sports South this season.
YA’BOYZ, comprised of Zach Kale and Joe Ragosta, are no strangers to having their energetic country jams tied to epic moments in sports. Their music has already been heard on Fox Sports, ESPN for the previous two college football seasons including SEC and ACC Networks, and season 13 of American Ninja Warrior.
Their self-titled latest release “YA’BOYZ” is a backwoods banger, with clever lyrics nodding to gator Luccheses, Piggly Wiggly, and double-wide trailers. Firing on all cylinders, the pair previously turned heads with boundary-breaking tracks “LEGENDS” and “STOMP YOUR BOOTS.” More new music is on the way for YA’BOYZ, melding punchy beats and infectious hooks for an in-your-face sound the genre has never heard before.
With unparalleled energy and wit, Zach Kale and Joe Ragosta are the very definition of entertainers as duo YA’BOYZ. Acclaimed songwriter and lead vocalist Kale has penned hits for artists including Florida Georgia Line, Gabby Barrett and Charlie Puth, NELLY, Keith Urban and more. Ragosta fronted a thriving punk rock band, but he always felt destined for more. After a chance meeting in 2016, Kale and Ragosta formed an instant friendship founded in a shared passion for music, fun, and the dream of smashing genre barriers. The pair soon began writing together, easily blending their diverse backgrounds and creating an all-new sound. The music is high-energy, quirky, and clever, just like Kale and Ragosta. Their tunes have already been featured on American Ninja Warrior, ESPN for its 2020-2021 college football season, and FOX Sports’ 2021-2022 season, and the dynamic duo have more new tracks on the horizon. YA’BOYZ are hitting the road this year with a live show that can be summed up like the final 5 minutes of a fireworks show – explosive, engaging, and keeps you looking for more.
