Tyler Hubbard Releases ‘Dancin’ In The Country’ As Next Single

Tyler Hubbard has a new single out, following his debut single as a solo artist, “5 Foot 9,” landing at the top of the charts. The 35-year-old released “Dancin’ In The Country,” the title track of his recent EP.

“’Dancin’ In The Country’ is just a really fun, uptempo country song that I’m super excited to play live,” Hubbard says of the song. “I was fortunate enough to get to write this with Ross Copperman, Jon Nite and Keith Urban, who’s just incredible as a writer and a guitarist, and he and Ross Copperman really helped capture the feel and emotion of this song sonically. And also, me and Jon Nite really tried to dial in the lyrics, and they were also very helpful with that. [It was] just an incredible day of songwriting and a really cool song that came from it, and a song that sounds like nothing else on the project.”

“Dancin’ In The Country” was originally inspired by the daily dance parties Hubbard and his wife, Hayley, have with their three children.

“Me and the three kids and my wife, we go in the playroom, turn the party lights on just about every night and have a dance party,” Hubbard shares. “So, this is one of those songs that always worked in the dance parties and feels like something that’ll be really fun to take on tour and play live and hopefully get the crowd moving the way the kids do during the dance parties.”

Urban, who invited Hubbard to join him for part of his  The Speed of Now World Tour earlier this year, previously praised Hubbard for his songwriting skills as well.

“First of all, I’ve always loved [Tyler’s] voice,” Urban said on Apple Music’s Today’s Country Radio with Kelleigh Bannen. “We got to write together a few months ago for the first time, and we wrote a song that he ended up recording that I’m very excited about. And it was really great being in a writing room with him. I was curious about his process and his way of approaching things. And I was really impressed with his compositional skills as a writer. He’s really, really good.”

Hubbard admits he never expected “5 Foot 9,” written about Hayley, to become a No. 1 hit.

“Reaching No.1 with my first single as a solo artist is an incredible feeling,” Hubbard said at the time. “I’m overwhelmed with gratitude when I think of everyone who has supported and stood behind me. I’m thankful to the fans, country radio, my team, and everyone at EMI Records and UMG Nashville for believing in me and working so hard to make this dream become a reality.”

Hubbard will release his eponymous full-length album on January 27. Find music and tour dates at TylerHubbardOfficial.com.
