Landon looks to "Get the Girl"
Monday, June 24, 2019
– Newcomer Trea Landon released a second song "Get the Girl," the follow-up to "Loved by a Country Boy."
The 26-year-old Georgian said, of the new song, "This song is about a girl that isn't impress with just pick-up lines. You have to go above and beyond to get a girl like this to be interested in you." Fellow songwriters Justin Wilson, Paul Jenkins, Brandon Ratcliff and Pete Good penned the romantic tune.
Landon scored a publishing deal within weeks of moving to Nashville in 2015, released an EP independently with more than three million streams and has since joined the Warner Music Nashville label family. Landon, who has toured with the likes of Luke Combs, Riley Green and Craig Campbell, will go on a promotional radio tour this summer.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
