NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 14, 2017) – Singer-songwriter Mike Ryan will release Blink You’ll Miss It, his third full-length studio album on October 20th. The Texas native’s new collection of songs describes life and relationships and how they change over time. Striking emotional ballad “Sad Song” is Sirius XM’s featured Highway Find and is available now HERE. Blink You’ll Miss It is the follow up to Bad Reputation which yielded three #1 singles on the Texas Music Chart and New Male Vocalist of the Year by Texas Radio.
Blink You’ll Miss It, produced by Brent Anderson, highlights Ryan’s impressive ability to craft compelling narratives that resonate with audiences. Lead single “New Hometown,” racked up 4 Million+ streams on Spotify and premiered on Rolling Stone Country. The track, which recounts the painful memories of an ex-girlfriend during a visit back home was also featured by Taste Of Country, Sounds Like Nashville, Nash Country Daily and more.
Ryan’s heart-gripping stories, catchy hooks and pop sensibilities can be heard on title track “Blink You’ll Miss It” and in real-life account “Damn Good Goodbye,” a song that recalls the memory of a final send-off with his old high school buddies. “One Way” written by Chris Stapleton and Lee Thomas Miller, accentuates Ryan’s vocal stylings with a rich and resonating sound that draws the listener in. “The Rewrite” originally written as a love song, eventually had writers Ryan, Chris DuBois and Brent Anderson flipping the script to transform the tune into a rowdy anthem for broken hearts and includes a shredding guitar solo by Brad Paisley.
The San Antonio, TX native’s talent has captured the attention of fans in the Lonestar state and it hasn’t gone unnoticed in Nashville. Signed as a writer to Sea Gayle Music Publishing since 2013, his latest chart-topping cut includes “Last Time For Everything,” a song he co-wrote with Brad Paisley, Smith Ahnquist, Chris DuBois, and Brent Anderson. Influenced early on by his grandfather’s musical ability, Ryan taught himself how to play the guitar while in college and he has since built an enviable following of avid fans, performing over 150 shows per year, including headlining shows at the iconic Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, TX. Upcoming performances include Atlanta, GA (9/14), Nashville, TN (10/11) and San Antonio, TX (10/20). For more information and for a full list of tour dates, visit www.mikeryanband.com.
