Season 4 Voice finalists The Swon Brothers have leveraged their run on the show into a major label deal with Arista Nashville and a recently released debut single that’s off to a fast start at country radio. They’ve been traveling all over, having performed in Sochi on several NBC gigs, in Mexico on labelmate Jerrod Niemann’s High Noon cruise, and around the US on a radio tour. Along the way, they’ve been playing new tunes slated to appear on their upcoming debut album. Check out video of a bunch of new songs here:
“Pray For You” (Jessi Alexander/Tommy James/Eric Paslay)
“Same Old Highway” (Adam Craig/Jeff Middleton/Josh Thompson)
“Songs That Said It All,” which Zach and Colton cowrote with Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood of Lady Antebellum.
“What I’m Thinkin’ About” (Jon Nite/Jimmy Robbins)
Also check out this recent performance of a pre-Voice Swon Brothers tune, “Oklahoma Lovin’,” where it’s Colton Swon who actually sings lead:
The Swon Brothers have also cut a song called “That’s How I Like It,” cowritten by Nathan Chapman, Lori McKenna, and Liz Rose, and a song called “Colder,” cowritten by Ryan Griffin, Chuck Wicks, and Micah Wilshire.
The Swon Brothers’s debut single “Later On” (cowritten by Ryan Hurd, Joey Hyde, and Justin Wilson) recently set a Country Aircheck record for the most adds for the 1st single from a debut act, and is already #40 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and #39 on the Mediabase country chart just 17 days after going for adds. Do you think “Later On” will be able to cash in on its early momentum, and what do you think of the other songs the Swon Brothers have lined up for their upcoming debut album?
