Hannah Ellis knows as well as anyone... country fans can always count on the genre to fire the neon up on a Saturday night, to keep the dive bars open until after closing time, and make the jukebox rock or tip a cover band.
Ellis debuted her latest single, “Country Can,” earlier this month. The upbeat track serves as a tribute to all the ways country music can unify audiences, building bonds between friends (and even strangers in the bar). The Kentucky-born artist penned the song with Jason Massey, Parker Welling, and her husband, fellow singer-songwriter Nick Wayne, according to a press release from her record label.
“Country can, country can/ Get a cold one in my hand/ Make these old boots wanna dance with somebody/ Make my two lane, four wheels roll down a winding back road/ Nothing turns my radio to gold like country can.”
“This song is so special to me and I hope you turn it up loud every time you hear it!” Ellis gushed in her Instagram caption when she released her new single. Its long-awaited release comes after weeks of teasing “Country Can” on Ellis’ social media channels. Last month, Ellis knew: “I think it’s about time for some new music, don’t you?”
Ellis finally unveiled the release date of “Country Can” with a truck wrap on the #98 car at the NASCAR Playoff Race on July 29 in Indianapolis, Indiana. She delivered a stunning performance of the National Anthem the same day, the press release states. Listen to “Country Can” here:
