Nashville, Tenn. (April 28, 2022) – Earlier this quarter, Spotify celebrated the one-year anniversary of their Fresh Finds program by announcing Carter Faith as the first country artist to ever take part in the multi-genre program highlighting independent artists. As part of the program, Faith has been partnered with two chart-topping songwriters, Jon Green (Lady A, James Bay, Sam Smith, Little Big Town) and GRAMMY® nominated Tofer Brown (Jon Pardi, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town) alongside Lauren Hungate (Lily Rose, Ashland Craft and more) to create the Spotify single. Brown and Green also served as co-producers. “The Devil’s Still Down In Georgia” is available today exclusively on Spotify.

“This was a unique writing experience because we went into the session knowing we were going to release the song that we wrote that day. I was nervous until Lauren threw out this title and immediately, we all felt the magic behind the title” shares Faith. “It was so fun to get to write something different and inspired by such a famous and fun song. Getting to write the song and then almost immediately record it was so special because we got to really continue riding that magic instead of having to try and find it again. Jon and Tofer truly crushed the production on this song and I’m so proud of it.”
Since its launch in 2016, Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist series has served as a launchpad for developing independent artists, often representing an artist’s first editorial “home” on Spotify. Stars ranging from Clairo to 100 Gecs to Aminé were all featured on Fresh Finds playlists early in their careers and have gone on to attract millions of monthly listeners.
