Single release: ‘Rainy Day’ by Travis Collins

unnamed-12If you’re unaware of the work of Travis Collins, it could be because you’ve been living under that proverbial rock – given that he’s won six Golden Guitars and he’s a back-to-back CMC Male Artist of the Year. Collins is a dynamic live performer, and a standout solo artist as well as a valued collaborator (such as with Amber Lawrence, on their EP, Our Backyard).

Collins has collaborated with producer Luke Wooten in Nashville to create his new song, ‘Rainy Day’, which is the third single from his forthcoming album, due in August, with ‘Make Up’ and ‘Weekend’ the first two.

While it could be seen as a melancholy song, the message is ultimately one of action, not despondency, and Collins is such an accomplished singer that he can pull off the nuances in the lyrics. Having said that, it’s an emotional song and impossible to not be affected by it.

‘”Rainy Day” came from a heavy heart,’ says Collins, ‘being reminded to never take anything, or anyone, for granted. This was a really tough experience to write about … and an equally difficult song to record, and now release.

‘Nobody is guaranteed tomorrow, and we’re certainly not guaranteed each other tomorrow … so, stop putting things in the “someday” basket. Take that trip, start that business, connect, reconnect, buy that nice thing you have always talked yourself out of. Most importantly, tell people you love them, and open that good bottle, together.’

Collins’s last album, Brave & The Broken, went straight to the top of iTunes charts on release (#3 Main chart/ #1 Country) and debuted at #1 on the ARIA Country Album charts, as well as picking up four Golden Guitar nominations.

Single release: ‘High Horse’ by Travis Collins

unnamed-5Travis Collins is a six-time Golden Guitar and back-to-back CMC Male Artist of the Year winner, and his live performances alone would be enough to garner those accolades, except he’s also been releasing consistently great country rock, including Our Backyard, his recent collaboration with Amber Lawrence, which is still taking them around the country.

Collins has announced a new album, Brave & The Broken, and from it has released a new single, ‘High Horse’, which looks at the end of a relationship through the eyes of a man talking to a (not quite understanding) friend. Collins has always been able to tell stories from a different perspective, and this song addresses not just the end of a romantic relationship but the complications that can also come with friendship.
