TIM HICKS DROPS PARTY & FESTIVAL ANTHEM ‘YEE TO THE HAW’
Red Dog Recordings are excited to announce that they will now be marketing and promoting releases from multi-award winning and chart-topping Canadian Country star Tim Hicks in Australia.
And that starts with Tim Hicks’ new party and festival anthem, ‘Yee to the Haw.’
‘Yee to the Haw’ has been echo-ing across festival stages in North America all summer long, including the massive Boots & Hearts Festival, where Tim Hicks headlined the opening night and filmed the song’s new music video, which is now playing on CMT in Australia.
"I dare you not to smile when you hear this song! It’s just SO much fun," Hicks shares.
"Upbeat, feels good, bit of a 90’s country vibe with a modern twist - what else do you want in a summer single?!” says Hicks.
“I wrote this with Jeff Coplan, Bruce Wallace, and [celebrated Australian writer] Phil Barton on one of our now infamous ‘wildcard nights’ in Nashville, way back in 2019.”
“Honestly, I forgot about it, and so did the rest of us! That is, until Jeff Coplan demoed it out and sent it over. I smiled so hard when I heard it, I couldn’t not put it out! So, from the knuckleheads that brought you ‘No Truck Song’ and ‘Stronger Beer’, here’s ‘Yee To the Haw’! Hell to the yeah! Hope you dig."
‘Yee To The Haw’ comes on the heels of Hicks' summer inspired acoustic EP Campfire Troubadour Volume II. From summer days to bonfire nights, Hicks has every mood covered with his recent roll out of music.
This single follows the release of Hicks’ eighteenth Canadian Country Top 10 single ‘Talk To Time.’
Delivering track after track with unparalleled quality and consistency, Hicks’ ascent as an elite chart-topping act since making his country label debut in 2013 is undeniable. His vast catalogue of highly praised releases including Throw Down, 5:01, 5:01+, Shake These Walls, New Tattoo, Wreck This and Campfire Troubadour has earned the five-time JUNO Award nominee and CCMA Award winner a double Platinum selling single, four Platinum selling singles, nine Gold singles and one Gold album in addition to the eighteen Canadian Country Top 10 singles, multiple sold-out headlining dates and back-to-back national tours.
