NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Alt-country rockers Southbound 75’s new video for their recently released debut single “Not Ready To Say I’m Sorry Yet” exclusively premieres today on The Country Network (TCN). The catchy, hook-driven country rock tune was written by lead singer Mark Lorenzo, with the audio recorded and produced by hit-making Nashville producer Bill McDermott (Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, George Strait). The video was produced and directed by Josh Sikkema, and is also watchable on the Tampa-based quartet’s YouTube page.
“This video really captured the point of the song,” said Lorenzo. “All the metaphorical signs are pointing to exactly what he should do, but the guy just keeps only seeing what he wants.”
“Not Ready To Say I’m Sorry Yet” introduces songwriter Mark Lorenzo’s ability to craft a cleverly written song about dealing with the immediate personal feelings born out of heartbreak, an established theme at the very core of many great country & rock songs. The song is set to appear on their forthcoming debut album Tales From The Black Swamp, also produced by McDermott, due out Fall, 2020.

Smash Single – Up For Country Song Of The Year – Reigns As 2017’s Longest-Running Country Airplay Chart-Topper
Follow-Up “I’d Be Jealous Too” Making Waves
Broken Bow Records star DUSTIN LYNCH is celebrating his first iHeartRadio Music Awards nomination as his undeniable summer anthem “Small Town Boy” will contend for Country Song of the Year at the iHeartRadio Awards broadcasting live from Los Angeles Sunday, March 11 on TBS, TNT and truTV.
“I couldn’t be more grateful that ‘Small Town Boy’ has been nominated for Country Song of the Year,” says Lynch. “It’s been amazing to see people embrace this song and have the continued support of Country radio. I’m looking forward to celebrating all of these great songs with friends at the iHeartRadio Awards.”
“Small Town Boy” – Lynch’s FIFTH consecutive #1 hit – topped the Billboard Country Airplay charts for a career-record four straight weeks, making it the chart’s longest-running #1 of 2017. The hitmaker performed the GOLD-certified smash (written by Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip and Kyle Fishman) across the airwaves, hitting the stage on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!and CMA Fest television special, NBC’s TODAY and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and CBS’ The Talk.
Lynch’s follow-up single, “I’d Be Jealous Too,” is poised to leave its mark on Country radio, already within the Top 40 and climbing swiftly. The “one-of-a-kind, natural showman” (Morning Hangover) hits the road in January, performing at Luke Bryan’s beachside festival Crash My Playa and returning as featured support on Brad Paisley’s WEEKEND WARRIOR WORLD TOUR, which kicked off Jan. 25 in Los Angeles.

Matt Westin was born and raised in a blue collar family in a middle class suburb of Pittsburgh, PA. From a young age, he pursued various passions, including academics, sports, acting, and music. After years of searching, Matt found true fulfillment in the creative outlets of acting and singing, dedicating himself to his artistic pursuits, and walking away from a promising career in engineering. With the influences of many legendary artists, ranging from Johnny Cash to Garth Brooks, “all the way” to Frank Sinatra, Matt found his voice. The thrill of live performance fed his desires, as he honed his vocal ability in bars and clubs around Pittsburgh for over a decade. His obvious drive and talent quickly won over his family’s initial disapproval of his walking away from an engineering career, and they became his biggest supporters. Tragically, after a bravely fought battle with Leukemia, Matt’s father succumbed to complications of chemotherapy, in April 2016. As a true family man, Matt was utterly devastated and struggled day to day with the reality of his father’s death. After months of depression, instead of self-destructing, Matt decided to honor his father’s memory, by finally pursuing his music career, as his father had encouraged.
Deciding to make a country record in his father’s honor, and being introduced by a mutual friend, to world-class musician/songwriter/producer Bryan Cole, the stage was set. Bryan took on the project as producer, believing in his talent and vision, and guiding Matt in making a first-class country record. Bryan recruited long-time friend and mix engineer, Doug Kasper to record and mix the record at nearby Tonic Recording Studios. With radio-ready songs, legendary musicians Mike Brignardello (Big & Rich, Blake Shelton, bass) and Steve Hinson (Dolly Parton, Luke Bryan, steel guitar), and an amazing up- and-coming musician, Adam Ernst, Matt dedicated an entire year to making the record he and his father would be proud of.
