MARTY BROWN RELEASES ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM, "AMERICAN HIGHWAY"
It's time to buckle up! Marty Brown's much-anticipated new album, AMERICAN HIGHWAY, is out and available for purchase now. The gregarious Kentuckian officially launched the project last night as he wooed industry insiders and select guests with a party at B.M.I.-Nashville's posh digs. Today, the Country star guests on WSMV-TV's Today In Nashville show, an appearance that follows visits to Country Aircheck, MusicRow Magazine and All Access earlier this week.
Early reviews are full of praise for the project: The Morton Report calls Brown, "An American hero (who) takes a full-blown top-down ride on AMERICAN HIGHWAY. Buckle up now." Lonesome Highway notes Marty's "fans will be delighted to have him back and new listeners will find a singer and writer giving his all and hitting some solid blue-collar sentiments." ParcBench observes "Every song in this collection has a high degree of flair, each in their own style, yet all of them rooted in traditional Country music."
AMERICAN HIGHWAY is Marty's first album release in over 20 years, and listeners agree that his new music proves he is writing - and singing - better than ever. This is a righteous, joyful foray featuring stylistic growth and gentle genre bending. Marty shares production credits with the revered Jon Tiven (B.B. King, Wilson Pickett, Waylon Jennings) with whom he co-wrote all of the disc's 10 songs.
