PRODUCED BY DAVE COBB
TOUR DATES CONFIRMED INCLUDING GRAND OLE OPRY DEBUT ON FEBRUARY 25
December 9, 2022—Singer, songwriter and musician Channing Wilson’s new song, “Drink That Strong,” is debuting today. Listen/share HERE.
Produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, “Drink That Strong” is Wilson’s second official release as an artist, following “Blues Comin’ On,” which debuted earlier this fall. With the music, Wilson is embarking on a new chapter of his career, after establishing himself as an honest and respected songwriter for the past two decades.
Born and raised in Lafayette, GA, Wilson began making trips to Nashville in 2009 where he earned his first publishing deal. Since then, he’s signed with Warner Chappell/Low Country Sound and written songs such as Luke Combs’ #1 hit, “She Got the Best of Me,” as well as numerous tracks for The Oak Ridge Boys, Travis Tritt, Robert Randolph & The Family, Dirty Heads, Jerry Jeff Walker and more. He’s also shared bills with several of his heroes such as Steve Earle, Billy Joe Shaver and Robert Earl Keen.
In celebration of the new music, Wilson will make his Grand Ole Opry debut on February 25 and will continue to tour through next year including shows at Tucson’s Rialto Theatre, San Diego’s House of Blues, Columbus’ King of Clubs, Lexington’s Manchester Music Hall, Louisville’s Mercury Ballroom, Seattle’s Tractor Tavern and Portland’s Ponderosa Lounge & Grill among many others. See below for complete itinerary.
Written by Wilson and H. Phillips, “Drink That Strong” features acclaimed musicians Brian Allen (bass), Chris Powell (drums), Leroy Powell (electric guitar, pedal steel, harmonica) and Mike Webb (piano, organ).
