NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Smashville Entertainment flagship artist, Alexis Ebert (and former Warner Bros. Nashville recording artist), is set to make her country radio debut with the release of her original tune, “Ride Or Die.”* Slated for release to country radio in late January [PlayMPE 01/29/19], Alexis takes the listeners for a flirtatious ride on the rebellious side. Co-written alongside award-winning songwriter, film and television producer Tammy Hyler (of “Runaway Bride”/”Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen”/”Desperate Housewives” fame and who has also collaborated with Martina McBride, Shania Twain, Billy Ray Cyrus, Taylor Swift and many others), the track will be available via all major digital retail and streaming outlets (Amazon/iTunes/Pandora/ Rhapsody/ Spotify) on Friday, March 29, 2019.
Produced by multi-award winning Mickey Jack Cones (Dustin Lynch/Jason Aldean/Runaway June/Mitchell Tenpenny/Trace Adkins) and recorded at Westwood Studios/COR Entertainment (Nashville), the track is the first to be released in 2019 from Ebert’s debut album (co-produced by Cones and Rodney Clawson) which highlights tunes co-written alongside multi-award-winning songwriters Rodney Clawson, Luke Laird, David Lee Murphy, Craig Wiseman and Jim McBride.
The explosive tune winds up with a “ready-aim-fire” intro set off by fiddle and banjo licks. Far-and-away from a sappy “Romeo and Juliet” ballad, the brazen “Bonnie and Clyde” high-energy tune is ignited by saucy, matter-of-fact lyrics and burns it down with a chemistry that’s a “perfect match.” Poised to revive the Tush Push in the honky tonks, dance halls and biker bars across the country, “Ride Or Die” lines up from heel-to-toe with the likes of “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” and “Achy Breaky Heart” in Alexis Ebert Hillbilly Hollywood Country style.
