NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 13, 2014)—Kentucky’s ownBorrowed Blue (Red Buck Entertainment) celebrates its recognition as “the one to watch” in the 2014 country music scene. The independent, five-man, country rock band appears in one of country music’s most prestigious industry magazines, CMA-Close UP, in the “Who New To Watch” feature section in good company alongside fellow rising country artists such as American Young (Curb Records), Chase Rice (Sony Red/Thirty Tigers), Cole Swindell (Warner Bros. Nashville), The Brothers Osborne (EMI Nashville) and The Swon Brothers (Arista Nashville).
Borrowed Blue made its presence known as a contender in Fall 2012 with its debut Nashville recording and single release entitled “Porch People” (written and produced by guitar slinger/recording artist Eric Heatherly) from its self-titled album (produced by Ira Dean/Trick Pony). The group recently filmed and released the music video “Back That Truck Up,” a proven fan favorite, which can be viewed via the Borrowed Blue official web page and YouTube.
Reigning from the Lake Cumberland region, Borrowed Blue is made up of a band of brothers—Kentucky-grown childhood friends Matt Cooper (lead vocals), Brandon Davis (drummer) and Jordan Latham (rhythm guitar) joined by Jay Gregory on lead electric guitar and Scottie Morrow on bass. A staple on Nashville stages and across the country, Borrowed Blue has shared the spotlight with award winning acts (Blackberry Smoke/Tyler Farr/Jamie Johnson/Kentucky Headhunters/John Michael Montgomery/ Montgomery Gentry/Kellie Pickler) in prime country music locales and festivals including Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar, Hard Rock Café Nashville, Listening Room Cafe, Silver Dollar Saloon, Lawrenceburg Fall Festival, Foothills Festival and CMA Music Festival.
In preparation for their upcoming sophomore CD release, the boys of Borrowed Blue have been co-writing with some of Music City’s most respected song crafters including Phillip Douglas (“Kiss This,” “My Blue Angel,”/Aaron Tippin and “The Choice”/Billy Gilman), Bernie Nelson (“Daddy Never Was The Cadillac Kind”/Confederate Railroad,“Damn Baby”/ Montgomery Gentry and “Betty’s Got A Bass Boat”/Pam Tillis), Jeff Silvey (“Oh What A Perfect Day”/George Strait) “and Kim Tribble (who has cuts by Jason Aldean, Montgomery Gentry, David Lee Murphy and more).
