“Can’t Say I Ain’t Country” album has been released on 15th of February and has captured the attention of the band’s fan base firstly through its lyrics. Details that are part o life’s big picture – jobs without future, a couple saying a prayer before eating in a Mexican menu restaurant, an orange’s peels left to rotten on a floor are just a few of the evocative images inspired by the album’s lyrics.
The lead single “Simple” is a love song with a taste of folk and rock, similar to the ones from Mumford & Sons’ playlist, whilst the duet with Jason Derulo called “Women” is a ballad meant to praise the women. “Told You” has traces of soul and blues on it, while “Small Town” and “Talk You Out of It” are a mix of R&B, country, and hip-hop.
Overall the album “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country” is a balanced gathering of several musical styles, without struggling to find original ways to speak about love and other relevant themes of modern life. The vocal harmonies combined with the contrast between the softness of its love songs and the strength of its country tracks provides the overall feeling that “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country” is bringing the band and its fans back home.
Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard met in Nashville while they were students at the “music factory” “Belmont University”. They began to write songs together during the school breaks and entered the local clubs circuits. Their performances have soon built a fan base and a reputation as a country sound band worth following. In December 2010 the duo released the EP “Anything Like Me”.
In 2012, the single “Cruise” preceded the album “It’z Just What We Do”, released in May. “Cruise” became a huge success: it reached #1 in the country charts and stayed there for 24 weeks, sold more than 6.5 million copies and in 2013 grabbed the CMA for “Single of the Year”, bringing also the distinction “Vocal Duo of the Year” for the band. The pop remix of the single, featuring Nelly, reached #4 on “Billboard Hot 100” and turned the song into an international pop hit.
The following year, in 2013, the band released two more successful singles: “Get Your Shine On” and “Round Here”, both reaching the top of the country charts. The same performance was attained by the album that followed these singles: “Here’s to the Good Times”, released in that year’s summer, won two platinum certifications and also reached the first position in the country albums charts.
2014 brought the fans the album “Anything Goes” produced by Joey Moi and preceded by the single “Dirt”. The album debuted at #1 in the charts and the single “Dirt” became the band’s fifth #1. Other 4 tracks of the album have become Billboard country hits all through 2015: “Confession”, “Sun Daze”, “Sippin’ on Fire” and the track that named the album – “Anything Goes”.
The band’s third album – “Dig Your Roots” was released in 2016 and in 2017 the band featured on Bebe Rexha’s track “Meant to Be”. The song reached #1 that year in “Billboard’s Country Airplay” chart and #2 in 2018 on the “Billboard Hot 100”.
In 2018 the boys began to release singles from the album “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country”: “Simple” appeared in June, together with “Colorado”, released only in digital format. In July it was “Talk You Out of It” turn, whilst “Sittin’ Pretty” was released in August. All these singles have been included in the album “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country”.
