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.

Country star and outdoor enthusiast Chase Rice has been chosen as NRA Country’s Featured Artist for August. The announcement comes during a busy time, as he preps to launch his highly-anticipated new studio album, 'Ignite The Night', set to release August 19 and available for pre-order now. Rice is also made his late-night national TV debut on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday, August 6.
As part of the NRA Country promotion, fans can check out an exclusive behind-the-scenes video clip of the “Ready Set Roll” singer in a high-octane, off-road adventure at NRACountry.com. While there, fans can register to win the ultimate “Americaning Prize Package” including: an autographed Ignite The Night CD, T-Shirt, beach towel, sunglasses, trucker hat, water bottle, and koozies.
As an NRA Country Featured Artist, Chase joins some of country music’s biggest artists including Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice, Love and Theft, Easton Corbin, Eric Paslay, Craig Morgan and many more, in teaming up to celebrate his support of our brave men and women in uniform, appreciation for the great outdoors, and love of family.
"I grew up on a 15-acre horse farm in Florida, and later North Carolina. Instead of playing video games, I grew up hunting, riding four-wheelers, and getting outside and getting dirty. We went to church on Sundays and learned about Jesus, and then my dad would drink a beer that same afternoon while my mom cooked for me and my brothers. I don't really know what people call ‘country’ anymore, but that was, and is, my version of country and I love it,” said Rice.
Within a few short years of moving to Nashville, Rice has already built a loyal fan base across the country through his energetic live shows and gained the attention of industry professionals with his edgy, eclectic sound. Rice first made waves as a co-writer on Florida George Line’s massive 2012 crossover hit “Cruise,” and his star continues to rise with his own RIAA Gold-certified, Top 20-and-climbing single, "Ready Set Roll." Rice's new full-length album, Ignite the Night, is slated for release August 19 on Columbia Nashville/Dack Janiels Records.

'Ignite the Night' is proving to be a fitting title for country music star Chase Rice’s forthcoming album, as it rocketed to the top of the iTunes Country Albums chart this week thanks to strong pre-order sales. Releasing August 19 on Columbia Nashville/Dack Janiels, Ignite the Night was produced by Chris DeStefano and features 15 tracks including the Gold-certified, hit lead single “Ready Set Roll,” which Rice will perform Wednesday, August 6 when he makes his late-night debut on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers.
“I can’t thank the fans enough for sticking by me, coming out to the shows night after night and buying my music,” said Rice. “The fact that ‘Ready Set Roll’ went Gold before it even hit the Top 20 and now Ignite the Night is already blowing up on iTunes means we must be doing something right, and I can’t wait to give them all I’ve got with this new album.”
By pre-ordering the iTunes “Party Edition” of 'Ignite the Night', fans receive an instant download of “Ready Set Roll” and “Gonna Wanna Tonight.” The digital edition also includes four bonus tracks: “Party Up” (featuring Colt Ford), “Country In Ya,” “Best Beers of Our Lives” and “Ride.”

Rice is currently touring with country superstar Dierks Bentley on the Riser Tour and continues to sell out his own headlining dates across the country. For more information, visit www.ChaseRice.com or follow on Twitter and Facebook.
