NASHVILLE, TN, May 16, 2023… Emerging country-star, Taylor Hogan, has released “Shot Of Whiskey” featuring Ryan Kinder, available on all digital outlets. The powerful country song showcases Taylor’s unique ‘New York roots meets Nashville’ sound – blending country-rock, urban pop, and other influences. Kinder’s guitar skills and backing harmonies add depth to Hogan’s unmistakable vocals lighting up the track. Penned by Hogan, Kinder, and Luke Sheets, the infectious chorus declares – “I might not be your cup of tea, but I’m damn sure someone’s shot of whiskey!”
“It’s certainly a worthy description of a song that does blend a mixtape of sounds, making it custom-made for the musical times we find ourselves living in at the moment,” describes People Magazine in their premiere of the single.
Taylor explains “Shot Of Whiskey” felt like the perfect first single because it reflects the combination of musical influences in my life. I’m also so thankful to Ryan Kinder and Luke Sheets for helping me weave part of my story into a song that rocks, and I am so excited Ryan is featured on it!”
Kinder adds, “I was honored to be a part of “Shot Of Whiskey” with Taylor and Luke. The song made so much sense for her with the juxtaposition of being a country girl from New York. We had a blast writing and recording this one, and I was more than happy to be a feature when Taylor asked.”
“Shot Of Whiskey” is the debut single from Hogan’s upcoming EP, out later this year.
