Riding a growing wave of excitement, Stoney Creek Records artist Drake Milligan is bringing neon thrills back to Country music, announcing his full-length album debut Dallas/Fort Worth.
Set for release on September 15 and named after the young Texan’s hometown, the project finds a next-generation traditionalist mixing timeless sounds and right-now energy – and giving Texas twang a much-needed shot in the arm.
Featuring 14 tracks produced by the legendary Tony Brown (George Strait, Reba McEntire) and songwriter/producer Brandon Hood, double-barreled baritone vocals match electrifying honky-tonk hooks, Western swing two-steppers, country pop balladry and more, as Milligan uncorks exuberant themes of trouble-making fun, young romance, life-sustaining love and more. Under his watch, country’s metaphorical saloon doors swing open once more.
“As a lifelong Country music fan, it has been my dream make a full-length record that pays homage to traditional Country roots, while still bringing new sounds and energy to the genre,” says Milligan.
