Co-produced by Nashville industry heavyweights Chuck Howard and Wilbur Rimes, “Chocolate” is a tongue-in-cheek look from a female’s perspective at the benefits of candy as opposed to those of a boyfriend. Bomshel’s Kristy Osmunson, producer Howard and songwriter Bob Regan wrote the song, and after hearing it, Holder jumped at the chance to record it.
“The first time I heard ‘Chocolate,’ I immediately connected to it, and I’m sure there’s a lot of other girls out there that will, too,” says the 18-year-old Holder. “It’s different, but that’s what I like about it. It’s catchy and it’s fun, and after all – who doesn’t like chocolate?”
The Chattanooga, Tenn., native has been recording material for the past several months with Howard, a veteran Music Row producer whose credits include projects with LeAnn Rimes, Trick Pony, Hank Williams, Jr., Bomshel and many others. Holder’s debut album is due out later this year on Nashville-based independent label, All Entertainment.
The teen Country singer has an accomplished background in theater, having performed more than 800 Broadway-style musical shows in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. before pursuing her Country career full-time in Nashville. She released a special holiday song “Christmas Eve” to Country radio in December 2010.
