Flores plans his "Half Life"

Friday, March 22, 2024 – Rising country singer Wyatt Flores, who has received much acclaim, announced today his next project, "Half Life, an eight-song project out Apriil 19 on Island Records.

He released the song "Wish I Could Stay" today, following up on his latest single, "Milwaukee." Lyrics include "Here in your arms, I feel so alive. I've never been so scared to die...I wish I could stay."

The two recent tracks are a first taste of the next new batch of songs to follow highly-praised project "Life Lessons," released last November.

Wyatt grew up in the college town of Stillwater, Okla. His father played drums, his uncle played guitar, and his mom introduced him to the catalogs of George Strait and Alan Jackson, while dad spun classic blues around the house. Flores was inspired by Turnpike Troubadours, Tyler Childers and Jason Isbell. So did Oklahoma.

"There's a lot of pain and suffering that comes from Oklahoma," he said. "Going back to the Trail of Tears, we're a poor state, and we don't have much. We're the kindest people ever, but we're tougher than a boot. We don't stop fighting. It builds a lot of character."

After dropping "Travelin' Kid" at 19-years-old, he gained some attention with "The Hutson Sessions" EP highlighted by "Please Don't Go." Signing to Island Records, he capped off 2023 with the "Life Lessons" EP. Wyatt kicked off 2024 by making his acclaimed debut at The Grand Ole Opry.
