TN)—Render Records Group DOWNDAY is proving to be one of the hottest
and fastest growing Country Rock bands in America. With an official
release date of February 11th, their powerful sophomore ballad, “The Last Song” landed on Music Row’s most added list this week amongst Rascal Flatts, Eric Church and Kip Moore.
“We are so thrilled with the response that radio has given us in such a
short period of time,” said DOWNDAY’s lead singer Rockey Jones. “We
can’t wait to meet every one of you in person on our radio tour!”
Working with platinum selling producer Steve Freeman and signed to Render Records, “The Last Song” is the first single from DOWNDAY’s sophomore album, After All These Years. Already met with critical success, Roughstock reviews it with legendary comparisons:
Last Song” is a powerful ballad from rising band Downday. Signed to
Render Records, the band showcases the ability to harmonize as strong as
some classic rock bands (The Eagles come to mind) while having the
Country storytelling of a band like Blackhawk.”
The album is slated for release on May 26, 2014 and will feature Jonathan Cain from Journey on the title track.
DOWNDAY scored their first Country radio Top 40 hit in 2013 with debut single, “Back in the Day,” while the music video made its home on CMT, GAC, ZUUS Country and TNN. Alongside the single release, “Back in the Day” was chosen to be featured on the home page of iTunes in June of 2013 and was the most added song at reporting country radio for two straight weeks.
The Arkansas-based band founded by Rockey Jones and Christian
Dean have been blazing new music trails across the state of Arkansas,
as well as, the entire mid south region, growing their fan base at a
rapid rate with their unique blend of southern rock style, country
melodies, blue collar message and tight harmonies. DOWNDAY is
currently gearing up to embark on the Grip It, Sip It & Rock It Tour 2014 sponsored by the GIASI Beverage company, HOOTERS and the Original John Daly Cocktail. The band will be representing PGA Golfer and two-time Major Champion John Daly’s
new beverage at concert locations all over the United States. Many
concert events will feature John Daly on site for signings and
special event meet and greets with DOWNDAY.
