The guys of Outshyne have come a long way since their days of flipping burgers at Burger King, where all but one of the band members worked years ago. Today they are traveling and playing music to fans live while staying busy recording new music for their CD which is set to release in early 2015. South Carolina natives Waylon Owings (lead singer, guitar), Josh Coleman (lead guitar, vocals), Casey Joe Kelly (rhythm guitar, vocals), Jason Paxton (bass) and Matthew "Smiley" Norris (drums) make up the band. The guys have opened for the likes of Jake Owen, Eric Church, Lee Brice, Easton Corbin, Gary Allan, Colt Ford and many other country stars. They have had a whirlwind year with their single "Moonlight Crush" hitting number 1 on SiriusXM The Highway Hot 45 back in July. Watch the official music video for "Moonlight Crush" below.
Two new songs from their upcoming CD are releasing this Tuesday (September 9) on iTunes and other digital outlets. We had the opportunity to hear these early, can't stop listening and can't wait for the fans to get their hands on the new music in just a few days.
"Night With Your Name On It", written by their friends Cole Swindell, Adam Sanders, & Thomas Archer, fits right in with today's country music and has the sound that country fans are wanting to hear. Acoustic cords lead into the electric guitar and the rocking sound continues throughout the song. The up-tempo beat will have fans moving as they are singing along to the catchy lyrics which are perfect for Waylon's voice. A modern love song, expect to hear this one playing on country stations across the nation soon.
"Whiskey Whisper" was penned by Chase Rice, Cole Taylor & Thomas Archer. The first beat of the music comes on and it doesn't seem very country, then quickly the sound of a modern country tune combining rock and a little rap takes over...add a sultry female voice to the vocals and you have a hit in the making. A seductively romantic tune that's not too slow, this is one of many songs of its kind out presently but definitely has a place in the niche of rockin' country.
If these songs are any indicator of what the full CD will be when it releases, expect the guys of Outshyne to take country music by storm. This could be one of those CDs reminiscient of Florida Georgia Lines' freshman cd, you know the kind, where every song deserves to be a hit.
