Current single, ‘See You Next Summer,’ heats up country radio
Diamond-selling superstar Brian Kelley’s got small-town life on his mind in “Dirt Cheap.” Delivered today across all streaming platforms and digital retailers via Big Machine Records, listen to “Dirt Cheap” and watch the lyric video.
“The moment I heard ‘Dirt Cheap’ I knew I had to record it. It reminded me of some of my favorite country songs growing up that really pull at your heartstrings. As much as I love the beach, I love the country, too,” Kelley shared. “This song matches and meets me where I’m at in life currently. I’m working hard, so in love with my wife Brittney, and always keeping my eyes peeled for the perfect ‘Dirt Cheap’ property of our own. I am so thankful this song landed in my world, and I hope it resonates with those who hear it just like it did with me.”
Aiming for a much-needed homecoming, “Dirt Cheap” was written by Seth Ennis, Wyatt McCubbin and Andy Sheridan, arriving with “laid-back twang that’s smooth sailing all the way,” hailed MusicRow. All about slowing down in a world moving way too fast, it finds a couple ditching their hectic lives in the city for something a little more down-to-earth – and a little less expensive, too. Produced by Dann Huff with a sunny, mellow-country soundscape, the uptempo tune mixes inviting acoustic guitars and a breezy steel with the warmth of Kelley’s celebrated voice, further painting an easygoing picture of life as it was meant to be.
In the studio working on his full-length debut album with Big Machine Records, “Dirt Cheap” comes as Kelley’s current single, “See You Next Summer,” nears Top 30. Marking his first time in the coveted most-added position at country radio as a solo artist with 80 first-week stations launching the ultimate anthem for summertime romance, “See You Next Summer” was notably added to Spotify’s “Hot Country” playlist and has already surpassed 8.6 million global streams to date.
