NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 7, 2019) – Country recording artist Zach Stone (Whetstone Music Ventures) kicks off the summer season with the release of a sultry new tune titled “Hands On.”* Slated to impact country radio on Thursday, May 30, 2019 [PlayMPE(05-06-2019)], the track follows the success and momentum of Stone’s debut single, “Sorry & Lonely,” which ranked in the Top 50 on the MusicRow Charts.
Produced by Matt Billingslea (Taylor Swift), the subtly, flirtatious track is revved by heart-pounding drum beats, electrified by rockin’ guitar solos and enlivened by a “put-your-hands-together,” sing-along chorus. Delivered with confident vocals, the sweet-talkin’ track, co-written alongside Will Stone (no relation) and Casey Cattie, recalls a timeless sentiment similar to the 1964 Beatles tune “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” as a “weak-in-the-knees” lesson in love. The simplistic love song reveals a playful infatuation spawned by chemistry and a freedom to explore an unmarked territory.
As long as you stay mine It’s so much better if we make it up as we go I was never any good at takin’ notes So I’ll learn to love you when I pull you close
“I’ve always been the type of person who takes a hands-on approach in all life situations. My ideal relationship is based on communication and patience. I’m fun-loving and physically affectionate; this song covers my feelings on PDA,” Zach Stone said in jest. Marco Promotions and Jerry Duncan Promotions will team to spearhead the “Hands On” country radio promotion campaign. The single will be available via major digital retail outlets and streaming platforms (Amazon/iTunes/Pandora/Rhapsody/Spotify) on Friday, June 21, 2019; digital retail distribution services will be provided by ONErpm.
About Zach Stone: ZACH STONE is a dynamic performer who makes an immediate and memorable first impression; the 25-year-old exudes a magnetic humility that casually and comfortably translates his charismatic personality. With quiet impact and unsuspecting power, his modest confidence and subtle sex appeal make Stone every guy’s trusted friend and every woman’s wildest dream. The native Texan, and now Nashville resident, is making his mark. The Commercial Music graduate (Belmont University) and TeamUSA all-star showed great promise to become a pro baseball player. He chose instead to lay down his glove and pursue the love of his life—music. Belmont’s “Best Of The Best” award-winner signed a management deal with Jetpack Artist Ventures in 2015. Just twelve months later, Stone recorded and released his six-song EP titled ASHES (produced by Rex Schnelle of Brooks & Dunn and Trace Adkins fame). Stone has since recorded and released a series of singles and corresponding music videos including “One Last Night” and “Four Letter Word” which received enthusiastic welcome and acclaim by country fans and the media. MusicRow Magazine recognized “the talented colt” for his studio performance with its DisCovery Award (March 2018), while the corresponding “Four Letter Word” music video premiered on Heartland-TV. Zach’s debut radio single, a two-Stone original penned alongside Will Stone (no relation), titled “Sorry & Lonely” enjoyed an early welcome from country radio, making its way to the Top 50 on the MusicRow Breakout Chart.
