Defining a genre with his sure-footed everyman approach, the platinum selling entertainer, also announced the digital release of “Wreck” a 3-song EP featuring the brand new single “No Truck Song”. Produced by Jeff Coplan and co-written by Hicks, Jeff Coplan and Bruce Wallace, ‘No Truck Song’ follows Hicks’ #1 chart-topper “What A Song Should Do” and serves as an exciting first look at what’s to come in 2020.
“It’s so much fun,” shares Hicks about ‘No Truck Song’. “On every album I usually add one or two songs that are a little tongue-in-cheek, designed to give fans (and me!) a chuckle, but we’ve never released one as a single before. We smiled and laughed a lot while we wrote it, so I hope fans hear that, and it makes them do the same!”
Hicks continues to lead the way, expanding the songwriting and style that helped define today’s country music. The platinum selling entertainer is a “true star on the Canadian country music scene” (GoBe Weekly), “proving he knows how to tailor his songs to his ever-expanding audience” and commemorating his wide-open sound as one of the defining influences on today’s Canadian County Music.
Building from local acclaim to a nationally recognized name, Hicks has cemented his reputation as an elite chart-topping act since making his country label debut in 2013. The platinum selling entertainer’s catalogue of highly praised releases including: “Throw Down”, “5:01”, “5:01+”, “Shake These Walls” and most recently, 2018’s “New Tattoo”, have earned the four-time JUNO Award nominee and CCMA Award winner, two PLATINUM selling singles, 7 GOLD singles, one GOLD album and thirteen Top 10 radio hits including the No. 1 chart-topper “What A Song Should Do” – all with his long-time label Open Road Recordings, in addition to multiple sold-out headlining dates and back to back national tours.
The first recipient of the Nielsen Compass Award, an honour that recognizes an artist for the most total content plays including streams, single and album sales as well as total social media following, Hicks released his fourth full-length studio album “New Tattoo” in June (2018) and followed with the national “Get Loud” headlining tour last fall, where he partnered with PLUS1 and donated $1 from every ticket to the Unison Fund and their work providing counseling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community. The album’s first single “LOUD”, was licensed by the NHL in North America – adding to his collective 60+ million streams worldwide to date.
