Nashville, TN Black Label Country Records’ recording artist, Dusty Black, will release his debut five-track debut EP, “Who Are You,” tomorrow, July 23, 2021. Available via all digital service providers, the EP was produced by country star Colt Ford and Grammy award-winning producer, Noah Gordon. “Somebody’s Mama” f/Gary LeVox, written by Monty Criswell, Derek George, and Houston Phillips, introduces the new EP and premieres today on People.com.
“This collection of songs perfectly expresses my life – past, present, and future,” said Dusty Black. “I’m so excited to finally have new music to share.”
From a touching song that speaks to life’s lessons, “Right Church, Wrong Pew,” to “Somebody’s Mama” (f/Gary LeVox), about raising a daughter which “serves up a heartfelt cup of sentimentality” (People.com), the five-song EP collection features songs penned by some of Nashville’s best songwriters. In each song, Black’s distinct vocals and authentic delivery shine through with a “sandpapery charm” (MusicRow Magazine,) and “an affinity for Southern rock and a rhythmic intensity” (Billboard).
“Who Are You” tracklist:
1. “Right Church, Wrong Pew” (Michael Heeney, Kenton Bryant, Jordan Walker)
2. “Places to Run” (Josh Mirenda, Taylor Phillips, Brock Berryhill)
3. “Who Are You” (Mitchell Tenpenny, Rhett Atkins, Jacob Durrett)
4. “Make a Memory” (Houston Phillips, Matt Chase, Josh Dunne)
5. “Somebody’s Mama” f/Gary LeVox (Monty Criswell, Derek George, Houston Phillips)
