Radio Romance – “Like the Moon”

Named after an Eddie Rabbit album of the same name, Radio Romance cut their teeth performing at Legend’s Corner on Lower Broadway in Nashville, TN. Their dynamic live show earned them a National Champion title for the 2018 NASH Next Challenge, after winning the Nashville local event in 2017. They have opened for some of the genre’s top acts such as Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, Lee Brice, Billy Currington, and Luke Combs. Their last single “Weekend” charted #49 on the Billboard Country Airplay charts, and the group has accumulated over 700,000 Spotify streams. Their new single “Like the Moon” produced by Blake Bollinger details the end of a relationship and the struggle of moving on afterwards. The music video premiered on CMT.com earlier today, and the group has been selected for CMT’s Artist Discovery Program. Directed by Quinton Cook the video was shot at an old abandoned warehouse in Nashville’s Wedgewood neighborhood and at a farm north of the city. In the video, the band is shown performing in a studio setting and at a campfire scene with VHS video flash backs woven into the story. It’s a great piece that captures both the sadness of a breakup and the motivation to move on after.

Deze week besteed ik aandacht aan wat, voor USCM, nieuw talent. De eerste is Sarah Shook & The Disarmers en hun single New Fails To Fail. Sarah werd geboren in Rochester, New York en heeft al verschillende begeleidingsbands gehad. Tot nu toe kwamen er één EP Seven (2013) en twee albums Sidelong (2015) en Years (2018) uit.
