For something different on Valentine's Day, Denning drops "ABBY"

Friday, February 14, 2020 – It may be Valentine's Day today, so Travis Denning probably figured why not release a break-up song.

Denning is out today with "ABBY." Written by Ashley Gorley, Matt Jenkins and Chase McGill, the track marks singer/songwriter Denning's first outside recording. The track follows his current single, "After A Few."

The song about is break up, and when posed with the question if there is someone new, the answer is "yes, and her name is 'ABBY.' That's 'Any Body But You."

"The minute I heard this song I knew I had to record it because my instant reaction was 'Man, I wish I had written that,'" said Denning. "I feel like anyone who has gone through a breakup can relate to it in some way and wishing they had a response as bold as 'Any Body But You.' We've played it out on the road live a few times, and the reaction has been wild. I'm excited that more people are getting to hear this song. It's a fun one."

Following kicking off 2020 as direct support on Dustin Lynch's Stay Country Tour, Denning will join Sam Hunt this summer as a special guest on his The Southside Summer Tour, starting May 28 in Charlotte, N.C.

A native of Warner Robins, Ga., Denning debuted in the top 40 with "David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs." from his distinctive songs and raucous guitar solos. Denning has penned songs for Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Michael Ray and Chase Rice. Denning's newest songwriting cut includes Ray's current single "Her World or Mine."

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable – If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»
