SOULFUL NEW TRIBUTE TO AMERICAN MUSIC HEROES OUT TODAY
Stack of Records Album To Arrive September 24th
NASHVILLE, TN. – (September 3rd, 2021) – Big Loud Records breakout artist Larry Fleet is headed for the debut of his full-length album, and now shares the roots of his soulful sound with the brand-new track, “Stack of Records”, out today (3/9). Listen here.
As the project’s title track and opening song, the grooving standout serves as Fleet’s Country star origin story, and a swaying tribute to his eclectic influence.
Co-written by Fleet with Ben Hayslip and Eric Paslay, “Stack of Records” speaks to the literal stack of vinyl albums his parents kept at their home in White Bluff, Tennessee. As the talented vocalist was growing up, he became fascinated by the sound of icons from across the American musical spectrum – and that mix wound up helping inspire Fleet’s now-signature fusion of Country, Classic Rock and Soul.
“‘Stack of Records’ is practically an autobiography of the music I listened to growing up that made me want to pick up a guitar,” explains Fleet. “I’m grateful to every musical influence that unknowingly shaped me into the artist I am and I hope I can return the favor for someone else one day.”
The just-released track previews Fleet’s STACK OF RECORDS which arrives on September 24. According to Fleet, the project is a direct result of that fateful record collection. “Every song on this record is based off a stack of records,” he says.
Produced by Joey Moi, the album includes 14 tracks in total – all of which were co-written by Fleet himself – and also features all-star collaborations with Jon Pardi, Jamey Johnson and Bryan Sutton.
The rising talent announced STACK OF RECORDS last week, and along with today’s title track, Fleet has also shared two more examples of what fan will discover: The romantic blast of rural R&B, “Different Shade of Red”, and the spiritually charged Country Soul of his chart-rising single, “Where I Find God”.
Released in early 2020, “Where I Find God” has already racked up more than 32 Million on-demand streams, while its official video has been viewed nearly 19 Million times on YouTube.

ABOUT LARRY FLEET: Blue-collar, Tennessee-native Larry Fleet grew up with a love of music sparked by an eclectic mix of influences spanning from Merle Haggard to Marvin Gaye. To make ends meet, Fleet spent tireless hours working construction jobs – never losing his dream of making music. A chance encounter with Jake Owen in 2017 led to a collaborative friendship and an opening slot on the road with Owen. Not long after, Fleet was sharing the stage with a living legend and one of his heroes – Willie Nelson – and etching his mark in the Nashville songwriting community co-writing with esteemed tunesmiths including Rhett Akins, Brett James and Kendell Marvel. The hard-working family man is now turning heads with his debut single ‘Where I Find God’ – a powerful ode to finding peace in the higher power’s presence. Garnering Fleet praise for his “emotive vocals” (Billboard), the song’s official music video continues to resonate with fans, amassing 19 Million+ YouTube views. ‘Where I Find God’ follows the release of Fleet’s aptly-titled debut album on Big Loud Records, Workin’ Hard. On September 24th, Fleet will release his brand-new, full-length album, Stack of Records, produced by studio ace Joey Moi.
