You can see them live at Analog at Hutton Hotel on Feb. 18.

Cole Swindell releases his new single “Drinkaby.”  Swindell says, “The guitar lick in the intro just grabs you and doesn’t let you go. I’m not sure if there is such thing as a fun breakup song but that’s kind of what this is. Glad it’s finally out and can’t wait to get out there and play it live.”

Butler explains the song, “Praying for Rain” is “about putting up the white flag and surrendering. It’s about saying that things have gotten so bad, so out of hand, that we can no longer handle something on our own and we need help.”

10Chase Rice

When Chase Rice’s longtime friend came to him with an idea for a song about “a guy and his dog driving around together,” the songwriter laughed. “That cliché was exactly the type of thing I was trying to avoid on this album,” Rice remembers. And yet, once he sat down with his acoustic guitar to craft what would become one of three solo writes on the forthcoming project, the result was anything but cliché. With “Bench Seat,” available everywhere now, Rice pays tribute to that friend – and the dog that saved his life.

“My buddy was in a really dark place – to the point where he was ready to end his own life. It took a lot for him to take me back to that moment, but when he told me what stopped him it stopped me in my tracks: his dog came and laid his head on his lap, and that connection saved him,” Rice explains. “I wrote this song by myself with the point of view from the dog’s perspective – which might not be obvious right away – and what that moment might have meant for the two of them if not for that intervention.”
