A Portion of the Proceeds of the Song to go to ACM Lifting Lives
Trio Opens for Jimmie Allen at KKGO's Stagecoach Kickoff Event Thursday
Country trio Honey County honors the country music community and celebrates those who dance and sing on in the wake of violence and tragedy in their new single, “Country Strong.” The band, Dani Rose, Devon Jane and Katie Stump, have written, recorded and are set to debut the song at Stagecoach to commemorate the resilient country community. With the help of co-writer Kalie Shorr and producer John Spiker, they excelled at the mission. A portion of the proceeds of the song will be donated to ACM Lifting Lives to further their mission to develop and fund music-related therapy and education programs, and serving members of the community who face unexpected hardships. “Country Strong” can be streamed and downloaded HERE.
Each year, the HonkyTonk team creates a new Stagecoach dance. 2019’s song, written by Los Angeles-based Honey County and remixed by DJ Hish, and the dance, created by Stagecoach Dance Captain Anne Marie Dunn with Borderline dance teacher Kristal Lynn Konzen, will be taught to fans all weekend. Fans can join in on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. at the HonkyTonk Stage for a special live music and dance performance with over 100 professional dancers.
The country music community is invited to participate, world-wide, by posting their #CountryStrong stories to social media and supporting live music in their communities.
“We were honored to take on this opportunity to write a song that celebrates our resilient country music community. We have so many friends that were affected by the tragic events that took place over the last two years and we hope that with ‘Country Strong,’ we can contribute to the healing and love that helps to bring us all even closer together” said Honey County.
In addition, Honey County performed as the openers for country artist, Jimmie Allen at "Go Country 105" KKGO's Stagecoach Kickoff Party on Thursday evening.
The trio saw much success from their High on the Radio EP release earlier this year, and several singles as “Love Someone” was prominently placed on the final season of CMT’s “Nashville” while “Los Angeles” was featured on E! News Weekend and its remix on the NFL Network’s “Total Access.”
