Tyler Hubbard has released a handful of specially curated songs titled “Dancin’ In The Country.” This is in advance of his upcoming album, which will drop Jan. 27, 2023, and prior to his live shows this fall on Keith Urban’s “The Speed Of Now World Tour.”
“It’s an exciting season,” Hubbard said. “Can’t wait to be out with Keith (Urban), and I hope everybody knows these new songs. I wanted to get some more music out before I hit the road with Keith, so there was actually some songs out there that the fans can get to know – and these songs are fun and I’m super-excited about them.”
He wrote the title cut, “Dancin’ In The Country,” with Ross Copperman, Jon Nite and Urban, and it was inspired by the nearly nightly dance parties with his family.
“ ‘Dancin’ In The Country’ is just a really fun, up-tempo country song that I’m super-excited to play live,” Hubbard said. “I was fortunate enough to get to write this with Ross Copperman, Jon Nite and Keith Urban – who’s just incredible as a writer and a guitarist – and he and Ross Copperman really helped capture the feel and emotion of this song sonically; and also me and Jon Nite really tried to dial in the lyrics, and they were also very helpful with that. But just an incredible day of songwriting and a really cool song that came from it, and a song that sounds like nothing else on the project – and honestly, a song that was inspired by these nightly dance parties we’ve been having in my house after dinner. Me and the three kids and my wife, we go in the playroom, turn the party lights on just about every night, and have a dance party. So, this is one of those songs that always worked in the dance parties, and feels like something that’ll be really fun to take on tour and play live – and hopefully get the crowd moving the way the kids do during the dance parties. So, ‘Dancin’ In The Country’ is just a fun one.”
The new collection includes his smash single, “5 Foot 9,” which is closing in on the Top 10 on the country charts.
