Nashville, TN (August 3, 2022) – Grace Leer released her single “Ones Before Me,” today to all music platforms. The single, written by Madison Kozak, Andy Skibb and Catt Gravitt, is a fun sing-along tune that celebrates country music greats including Loretta, Waylon and Willie. Leer recorded it live in a Nashville studio and producer Dan Fernandez really brought the mix to life by creating a live feel with a modern twist and a guitar lick that’s guaranteed to stick.
The chorus odes:
“Rewind to a time when Loretta sang her mind, when Waylon and Willie were higher than high,
when the band had a steel and the drums they were real, oh, the rhinestones in all of its’ glory
so, here’s to the ones before me”
“I love this song so much because it’s a toast to all the country legends that paved the way for artists like myself to do what I do,” exclaims Leer. “Dan Fernandez really brought this to life and I’m so excited it’s out.”
In celebration of the greats, Leer is covering songs from days gone by on her socials. The first cover is Patsy Cline’s “I Fall To Pieces.” Watch here.
“Ones Before Me,” is part of Leer’s self-titled EP slated for release on September 14. The project was produced by Dan Fernandez and features such songwriters as Lanco’s Tate Howell, Joey Hyde and Madison Kozak among others.
