TAYLOR HICKS RELEASES NEW SINGLE
“SIX STRINGS AND DIAMOND RINGS”
– American Idol winner and Platinum recording artist Taylor Hicks
released his new single “Six Strings and Diamond Rings” today. The
long-awaited single features an iconic collaboration with
Grammy-nominated Robert Randolph and is the first from Hicks’
forthcoming album set to release in early 2018 and recorded in Nashville
at Zac Brown’s iconic Southern Ground Studio.
“They say an artist has to live and breathe the art they make. It
also has to be relatable to the people that are listening and to the
lives they lead on a daily basis. No matter what someone may be
experiencing in life, I think music has the power to let us know that we
are not alone in the emotions we’re feeling and the things we are going
through. “Six Strings and Diamond Rings” embodies this for me, and I
hope listeners can take the same ideas away from this song,” Hicks says
of his new single.
“Six Strings and Diamond Rings,” which premiered Wednesday on Billboard.com, is a song about life on the road and the personal sacrifices it often takes to turn a dream into a reality.
In the midst of recording his new album and continuing to tour, Hicks
has also been on the road hosting the award-winning INSP original
series, State Plate, which airs on Fridays at 8:00pm Eastern. State Plate takes
Hicks across the country in search of the states’ most iconic cuisines.
Hicks landed himself a feature column in USA Today after his stop in
Missouri. View the USA Today column here.
