Single Release: 29 March 2024

Ahead of his headline tour, rising UK Country and Americana artist Matt Hodges is set to release his highly anticipated single, “Make This Our Town”, following his BCMA Male Artist of the Year win and appearance on BBC Look North TV!

Matt Hodges is gearing up to drop his latest single, “Make This Our Town,” on 29th March 2024. The song, a feel-good anthem celebrating the simple pleasures of unwinding with loved ones over a beer after a hard week’s work, is poised to resonate with audiences far and wide with its infectious melody and relatable lyrics.

Reflecting on the upcoming release, Matt shared, “We all work hard and look forward to the weekend to let loose and relax with a few drinks, spending time with the friends and family we love. Hard work seems a little easier with a beer and a couple of shots!”

This exciting announcement comes hot on the heels of Matt’s recent triumph at the BCMA awards, where he proudly walked away with the title of Male Artist of the Year. His band’s unforgettable performance at Liverpool’s iconic venue, The Cavern, further solidified his status as a trailblazer in the UK Country music scene.

Cliff & Susan

Cliff & Susan, married country music duo from Little Rock, Arkansas, are excited to announce the release of their new single, “A Natural State.” Written by Arkansans Cliff Prowse and “The Voice” Season 17 alumni Cory Jackson (Team Blake), the song is a tribute to growing up in rural areas and celebrates the simple joys and beauty of small town life.

The dynamic arrangement of the song is reminiscent of country legends like Brad Paisley and Alabama, with a chicken pickin’ guitar, heavy traditional fiddle, and a double-time breakdown at the end where the band rocks an extended instrumental.

Gary Pratt

Country artist Gary Pratt has released a new single, “Before Someone Gets Hurt,” from his album, “Something Worth Remembering.” The song, written by Larry McCoy, Bart Butler, and Westin Davis, tells a story of love, fear, and the difficulty that comes with making the decision to end a relationship.

Fueled by his own personal experiences, Pratt’s emotional and heartfelt vocals bring the lyrics of “Before Someone Gets Hurt” to life. The song is a reminder that sometimes it’s better to end a relationship before it causes more pain in the long run.

Jordan Davis

New song “Good News Sold” has just been released by award-winning singer/songwriter Jordan Davis. The single was premiered on the sold-out UK/European run of his Damn Good Time this February.

Sharing his inspiration for cutting the song, Davis shares, “I think at times there is no shortage of very heavy headlines locally and globally, and it’s hard sometimes to not get lost in that and spiral into being overwhelmed by them. But when you go home and hear your kid laugh or see someone go out of their way to help a stranger, these acts aren’t being highlighted in the same way but they very much exist.”

The song showcases Davis’ ability to capture and perfectly crystallise real-life snapshots

Sarah Rose

‘Take to the Grave’ is the first release of 2024 for award-winning UK artist Sarah Rose. The song was co-written in November with country writer Tim Prottey-Jones (First Time Flyers), who went on to produce the track.

The story tells of a woman who meets a stranger in a bar one night… Finding new courage she leaves her abusive relationship, but with consequences she wasn’t expecting.

‘Take to the Grave’ will be released on Friday 15th March 2024, on all digital streaming platforms.
