Filmore’s Acoustic Version of “Slower” Available 8/9

Fresh off his scorching hot set at Windy City Smokeout in Chicago, country singer/songwriter Filmore finds himself with a certified hit on his hands via his single “Slower,”
his first for label Curb Records. With each passing day, the addictive
song with its ultra-satisfying banjo backbeat, has already surpassed 26
million on-demand streams-and-climbing and is earning its place as ‘the
song of the summer’ according to NBC’s “TODAY.”

Growing up in Wildwood, Missouri, Filmore would come home from school and, as he told Rolling Stone,
listen to everything from salsa music his Colombian mother would play
while cooking dinner, to his dad’s Eighties favorites like John
Mellencamp and Def Leppard.

“I
grew up listening to all types of music – my parents music, the
internet, and the radio stations in my hometown. From high school to
college and then Nashville, my music influences just kept growing, and
continue to,” shares Filmore. “I found my musical sound by being
completely true to myself. The moto I’ve built my career and music upon
is ‘anything but typical.’ I’ve been in Nashville seven years, and in
the last couple it feels like I’ve hit a groove musically and on the
road.”

“Slower” was written by Filmore, alongside Steven Dale Jones and Justin Ebach, and produced by Ebach.

This Friday’s (Aug. 9) release of an acoustic version of “Slower”
follows last month’s additional release of new song “Livin Easy,” and
recent previous track “Other Girl,” the latter two off his forthcoming
full studio album set for release later this year.

Filmore is also grabbing the attention of some of country music’s
hottest artists. This fall, he will tour alongside Lauren Alaina on her That Girl Was Me Tour and also share the stage in August with Dan +Shay, following a July date with the duo.

And thanks to the demand from fans, Filmore will soon set off on his The Slower Tour which
includes high profile stops in New York, Las Vegas and Nashville with
special guests Alana Springsteen and Niko Moon on select dates.

About Filmore

Wildwood, Missouri native, who now calls Nashville home. With over 85
million on-demand streams, appearances on NBC’s “TODAY” and TheBobby Bones Show,
the singer/songwriter has honed his electric and engaging live show by
touring alongside artists such as Sam Hunt, Russell Dickerson, Carrie
Underwood and Dan + Shay, among others. With his first major label album
expected later this year, lead single “Slower” is racing up the country
radio charts thanks to unprecedented streaming boosts, as prior to
