continues the hot streak with his follow-up infectious anthem “Sunshine
& Whiskey,” which has sold over 460,000 copies to date. Currently
Top 10 at Country radio, the tune is quickly approaching the top of the
chart. Both songs are featured on his latest album, SUNSHINE & WHISKEY, which debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart, and ROLLING STONE noted as “required listening.” Produced
by Marshall Altman (Marc Broussard), the project captures the
newcomer’s unique blend of blues-infused, country rock and his
undeniable guitar prowess on every song.
