NASHVILLE, TN. – (7th October, 2022) – Hot off their electric performances across the UK this summer, “Artist to Watch” (Sounds Like Nashville) Everette – comprised of Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia – today release their Kings of the Dairy Queen Parking Lot: Side B. Listen HERE.
“From beginning to end of Kings of the Dairy Queen Parking Lot: Side B, we explore every shade of us stylistically and lyrically,” says the duo. “These songs relive the stories from our 16 years of friendship and musical partnership that made Everette. We feel like the world can use a little off-the-wall crazy to escape every now and then, and we’d love to take you there and back again.”
Exploiting the “crazy rush that comes with a new crush” (People), Side B features the previously released, addictively catchy “Gonna Be A Problem” that has received rave reviews.
“With red hot dueling guitars and a ‘hanging-with-the-boys’ vibe, their Country Rock is filled with clever lyrics, descriptive stories and a sense of humour that’s missing in most of today’s super-serious scene” (Sounds Like Nashville). Everette proves this sentiment on tracks like “Woo Hoo Hoo” which is all about looking on the brighter side of life and “Shunk As Drit” that serves as a how-to-guide for living your last day on Earth.
Incredible songwriters, the duo co-wrote all eight tracks, diving into romance on “Make Me Want One,” which the duo performed on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, “Run,” and “She Got That From Me” while “Wild Woman” and “Get By” blast their signature sound of “soulful, laid-back twang-Pop with clever lyrics and catchy hooks” (Rolling Stone) up to 10.
Named one of “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” by Rolling Stone, the rising duo pump their Country as hell vocals, whiskey smooth harmonies and Bluegrass and energetic beats into their new project that solidifies the “soulful act” as “one you’re going to want to keep on your radar” (Country Swag).

Rooted in contemporary Country, Rock & Roll, southern storytelling, and heartland hooks, Everette’s music unfolds like the soundtrack to a backyard party where the kegs are tapped, the music is loud, and everyone’s on the guest list. Signed to Broken Bow Records, the duo – comprised of Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia – was selected for CMA’s second EVER KixStart Class as one of the three acts chosen out of nearly one hundred candidates. Named after George Clooney’s philosophy-spouting, folk-singing character in O Brother, Where Art Thou? — the guys honed their craft in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where they cut their teeth playing four shows a week while attending Western Kentucky University. There, they attracted a diverse community of fans and friends from teachers to hippies to working professionals. Learning that they fit in with everyone and everyone fits in with them, this helped whittle Everette’s salt-of-the-earth songwriting and top-shelf musicianship, which soon led them to Nashville. Already accumulating rave critical acclaim, Everette’s music has been described as “high-energy grooves and airtight harmonies by Billboard, “soulful, laid-back twang-pop with clever lyrics and catchy hooks” by Rolling Stone and “… laid-back couple of dudes who blend gritty rhythms with wavering harmonica and mesmerizing slide guitar” by Taste of Country. More recently, the duo released their project Kings of the Dairy Queen Parking: Side A, made their Grand Ole Opry debut, joined Brothers Osborne on tour and played Nissan Stadium at this year’s CMA Fest. Heading out across the US with Cadillac 3 this Autumn, Everette’s highly anticipated Kings of the Dairy Queen Parking: Side B is out now and includes their addictive track “Gonna Be A Problem.” For more information on Everette, visit: weareeverette.com.
