Chase Rice’s viral hit ‘Eyes on You’ earls No.1 most added at Country Radio

Broken Bow Records’ Platinum-certified artist Chase Rice made a triumphant return to country radio with his new single, “Eyes On You,” becoming the No. 1 Most Added song in the format. The mid-tempo ballad paints a picture of a man so in love with a woman that nothing else in the world can take his eyes away from her. Hitting the U.S. Viral 50 Chart immediately after its release, “Eyes On You” was an instant fan-favorite on streaming services, having been streamed over 50 million times worldwide already – averaging more than 250,000 streams daily – before even being announced as a radio single.

New music and video from a unique duo – Tony Wright & Ryan Hamilton

Tony Wright (Terrorvision) & Ryan Hamilton (The Traitors) have shared the music video for the lead single from their forthcoming collaborative album ‘Grand Ole Otley’ – out June 8th – their version of the Don Gibson classic later recorded by Johnny Cash among others, ‘Oh, Lonesome Me’, which has also received airplay at Americana radio and been highlighted as one of Classic Rock / Louder’s Tracks of the Week, among other early coverage for the release.

After being introduced by producer Dave Draper, Wright & Hamilton’s shared love of ‘good music’ led to talk of an album re-imagining country standards and more obscure songs from way back in the archives. The resulting album, ‘Grand Old Otley’, is a heady mix of country, Americana and folk and is likely to prove much darker at times that could be expected from a pair notorious for their wise-cracking.
