Press Release

Drew & Ellie Holcomb are excited to announce that they will be releasing their new “Brick by Brick” EP this Valentine’s Day – the same day the duo kick-off the “Feels Like Home” headline tour. News of the EP comes with the release of the achingly beautiful title track “Brick by Brick” – listen here via your preferred DSP. The song opens with the sounds of an acoustic guitar and is anchored by the warm tones, subtle twang, and alluring cadence of the pedal steel as well as Drew & Ellie’s harmonies.

“ ‘Brick by Brick’ tells the slow and steady kind of love story that heals us and invites us back home to ourselves. This is the love I've known in Drew, and I'll be forever grateful for it. I loved writing this song with my talented friend, Taylor Leondhart. I'm a big fan of her music, and what a joy to become friends and find in her a kindred spirit,” Ellie Holcomb said.

The new EP is their first new music since 2023’s “Bones” single that followed 2022’s “Coming Home: A Collection of Songs” album – featuring songs the duo had written over the years along with new single “Coming Home,” a cover of Willie Nelson’s “On The Road Again,” and a rerecorded version of fan favorite “Hung the Moon.”

When asked about the new “Brick by Brick” EP, Ellie said, “I love anytime Drew and I get to make music together. It feels old and familiar, and new all at the same time. Drew's been traveling a lot on the road, so this batch of songs is a combo of ones we've written both apart and together, and I couldn't love them more. These songs embrace steady love, dancing and mystery, so naturally, I'm a big fan.”

Drew & Ellie Holcomb first met while Drew, a native Memphian, and Ellie, a native Nashvillian, were attending school together at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. When Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors originally formed in 2005, Ellie was a full-time member. The couple married in 2006 and, in 2012, Ellie left the group to pursue a solo career that has seen her release three studio albums of her own, including her critically acclaimed 2021 LP “Canyon,” and three children’s books along with accompanying albums and her adult devotional book, “Fighting Words.” Drew and the band released nine studio albums, including their more recent critically acclaimed “Strangers No More” LP in June 2023, which produced the No. 1 Americana single “Find Your People.” 

While pursuing separate and equally successful career paths, the couple has continued to collaborate personally – adding three beautiful children to their family – and professionally – putting on annual sold-out Christmas shows, releasing an album, singles, and an EP plus some touring along the way.
