Breaking Southwest stages "Ghost Town" welcome

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 – Texas natives Breaking Southwest release their debut single, "Ghost Town," on Friday.

The trio, who are signed to Nash Records, also will appear during South By Southwest on the Nash Live Stage March 16 in Austin before heading to Dallas on March 17 to open for RaeLynn on the NASH Next Tour stop at The House of Blues.

Breaking Southwest merges country and rock among other influences. The 2015 NASH Next-winning trio is Kent Bell (vocals/guitar), Kyle Gaston (guitar) and Lauren Hall (fiddle/vocals). NASH Next was a talent competition held for the first time in 2015.

The new single was written by Jonathan Singleton and Josh Thompson. The group is in the studio working on their debut album with Julian Raymond, who worked with Glen Campbell.

Nash Records is part of the Big Machine Label Group.
