Voice Season 4 finalists The Swon Brothers recently confirmed the October 14th release of their self-titled debut album via Arista Nashville, and now there are 4 tracks from the album to stream! The album is co-produced by Mark Bright and the Swon Brothers, and led by t15 and rising single “Later On.”
You may hear a familiar voice on background vocals on the poignant “This Side of Heaven” (on which the brothers trade lead vocals) – country superstar and Season 4 Idol champ Carrie Underwood is a college friend of Zach Swon’s and has been rooting the duo on since they turned up on The Voice. They are now labelmates at Arista Nashville and share a producer in Mark Bright. The 4 tunes feature a couple of power ballads about faith and how life can test it – traditionally a common theme in country music but barely on the airwaves in these bro country days – plus a romantic midtempo celebrating the all around appeal of a woman (that’s also featured on the current Danny Gokey album) and a bro-friendly summer song. Check them out here:
“Pray For You” (Jessi Alexander / Tommy James / Eric Paslay)
“This Side Of Heaven” (Blake Bollinger / Ryan Lafferty / Ben Stennis)
“Pretty Beautiful” (Ben Caver / Megan Conner / Brian White)
“95” (Ryan Hurd / Frank Rogers / Brad Tursi)
