Marty Brown Set To Release New Album, American Highway
After a two-decade break from recording music, songwriter and producer Marty Brown will release his new album, American Highway, on May 17. We’re so excited! After all, we’ve been following Brown since the 90’s and loved seeing him return to music on season 8 of America’s Got Talent. Die-hard and new fans alike will want to give American Highway a listen (or ten) on Friday! Rumor has it that it’s his creative best.
American Highway, which will be released on Plowboy Records, features ten tracks that Brown co-wrote with Jon Tiven (who also co-produced the album). In addition to his own successful albums, Tiven has produced music for many famous artists including Frank Black and Wilson Pickett. American Highway has been described as a masterpiece of “Gospel to Blues to traditional Country, Rockabilly and beyond.”
So far we’re loving the first track released called “Umbrella Lovers”. Talk about big-city vibe meets amazing vocals! We recently had the opportunity to interview Brown at Country Radio Seminar (CRS) in Nashville where we talked about American Highway and “Umbrella Lovers”. Watch our interview with him here:
Other songs we’re looking forward to hearing on American Highway include “I’m On A Roll (Better Than It’s Ever Been)”, “Casino Winnebago”, “Mona Lisa Smiles”, “Kentucky Blues”, “Shaking All Over The World”, and Velvet Chains.”
“Marty took 20 years off from recording,” Plowboy President Shannon Pollard recently said. “Most artists would never attempt a comeback; for Marty it was always impossible to imagine that he wouldn’t return to the studio. He is just as raw and brilliant as ever – but he’s expanded his horizons, and this is one American Highway that we are excited to travel.”
