Leslie Jordan, Blanco Brown, and LOCASH: “Let It Slide”

Leslie Jordan, Blanco Brown, and LOCASH collaborate on Leslie Jordan’s song idea, “Let It Slide,” out now on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand-new collaboration below.

The world was devastated to hear about the passing of beloved talent and personality, Leslie Jordan nearly two weeks ago at the young age of 67. Known for his roles on screen and stage including “Will & Grace,” “The Cool Kids”, “American Horror Story,” and “Sordid Lives,” among others, he was just beginning his career as a singer, releasing a country/gospel album last year titled “Company’s Comin’” featuring artists such as Chris Stapleton, Dolly Parton, and Brandi Carlile. Today, we celebrate the release of his new track, his last gift to fans, “Let It Slide” with LOCASH and Blanco Brown.

Move over “Cha-Cha Slide.” This fun, pop-country tune is all about throwing your worries away and enjoying the moment. Lyrically, it’s simple and silly, and its funky rhythm mixed with the artist’s banter in between verses makes an amusing song perfect for a night at a honky-tonk.

“Let it slide to the left, slide to the right // Let it roll right off of your back, to your backside, get electrified // Let it roll right into your hips, shake it off like a Polaroid pic // Let it slide, slide, slippety slide // Kiss your blues bye-bye”

This song is right up Brown’s alley, who initially gained publicity with his 2019 hit, “The Git-Up.” This track fits LOCASH’s persona as well, known for tailgate hits such as “One Big Country Song” and “I Love This Life.”

Nelly Collaborates with Blanco Brown and Breland on “High Horse”

Superstar Nelly collaborates with Blanco Brown and Breland on their new song “High Horse,” out now.  Take a look below as we dig into the song.

Multi-platinum-selling superstar Nelly has dipped his toes into the country world a few times over the years. Now, the rapper is solidifying his staying power in the genre officially releasing a country-inspired album Heartland, due out on August 27th. Last week, Nelly released the second song off the project, “High Horse,” featuring Blanco Brown and Breland.

Full of country twang and vocals, “High Horse” is another funky collaboration. Similar to Nelly’s collab with Florida Georgia Line, “Lil Bit.” The three artists are proving that genre lines do not need to be so solid. Brown, Breland, and Nelly combine all their unique talents and voices in a song that is truly a genre of its own.

“Get up off that high horse // Get up off of this train // Get up off of that high horse // And drop that thing on me // Get up off of that high horse // Get up off of this train // Get up off of that high horse // And drop that thing on me”

Nelly has had crossover success in the country genre since 2004 with Tim McGraw on “Over and Over” He is in a league of his own. It is encouraging to see him take other promising artists under his wing. Blanco Brown and Breland are both rising stars in their own right!

Blanco Brown Releases New Song “Nobody’s More Country”

Blanco Brown released a brand new song, “Nobody’s More Country” available now, June 18th, on all streaming platforms. Check out the brand new track below.

Finally, Blanco Brown returns with another incredible creation. After a scary accident in 2020, the singer-songwriter is back with a restored lease on life. His brand new song “Nobody’s More Country” is everything we hoped it would be.

The new song is a certified bop. It is catchy, effortless, and unifying, all mixed together. Written by Brown with Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line, Jordan Schmidt, and Quintin Amey, “Nobody’s More Country” is a song that showcases the singer’s Georgia roots, groovy beats, and his vast life experience. On the track, Brown shares everything he loves about his home state. He also mentions places that country music has allowed him to travel to. Ultimately, he comes to the conclusion that there is “no place like home.”

“I’ve been back and forth from here to Georgia // Carolina to California // Across the hills of middle Tennessee // I’ve been mountain high in Colorado // Seen some things but one thing I know // No one loves the country more than me”

“I’ve been all around the world and have seen people of all ages, nationalities, and backgrounds uniting over their love of Country music—the music ties us together,” shared Brown in a recent press release. “It’s the sound of home, it’s the sound of my Georgia heart. It’s hard to imagine anybody loving it more than me.”

We could not agree more! We’re happy to see Brown blazing the trail for equality, acceptance, and love in country music. It doesn’t hurt that the new song is so fun too.

Parmalee Scores #1 Song with “Just The Way” featuring Blanco Brown

Parmalee’s “Just The Way” featuring Blanco Brown earns them number one song as the tune hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

It has been seven years, since country band, Parmalee found themselves at the top of the charts with “Carolina.” Now, their smash hit with fellow artist and friend, Blanco Brown, “Just The Way” revitalized their career and exponentially grew their prospective fanbase. Today the upbeat song found its way to the top of the country charts, marking Brown’s first number one on country radio.

Written by Matt Thomas, Kevin Bard, and Nolan Sipe, “Just The Way” is a song that encourages acceptance and loving people for who they are. Boasting equality, it is refreshing to see a song like this take the number one spot on the charts. The song shares the impossible task of being perceived as perfect on social media and to society, adding that flaws are really what makes us human.

“I love you just the way God made you // Girl, he don’t make mistakes // What you call your imperfections // I call beautiful, babe // So let my eyes be your mirror // And you’re bound to see it too // ‘Cause I was made for loving // Just the way God made you”

Parmalee and Brown take turns singing their prospective verses. During the chorus and bridge, the band and singer show how effortless their voices mesh together, as well as, how incredibly talented they all are.

Congrats to Parmalee and Brown on their hit!

Exclusive Blanco Brown Showcase in NYC

Blanco Brown

Last night songwriter, artist and producer Blanco Brown took the stage at Bowery Electric to perform an exclusive showcase hosted by his record label Broken Bow Records. His debut song “The Git Up” is going viral, highlighting the catchy nature and fun dance moves reminiscent of The Cha Cha Slide, The Macarena or even going further back, The Electric Slide.

At last night’s showcase, Brown kicked the night off after a warm and humbling welcome from BBR Music Group’s EVP, Jon Loba.  He told the story of the first time he met Brown and how different and exciting he thought his music was. Brown told Loba, “I want music without classification, music without borders.”

Blanco Brown NYC

For traditional country fans, Brown’s music may stretch the genre too far past the limits however, his talent is undeniable. He opened his set with Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” and from the moment he hit the chorus, his silky smooth vocals captivated the intimate crowd. He then performed the songs from his debut, self titled EP including “Georgia Time”, “Ghett Ol Memories”, and “TN Whiskey”.

For anyone willing to continue to support the genreless music movement, Blanco Brown’s tunes are catchy and you won’t be able to stop bopping your head to his unique beats. While “The Git Up” is the very first introduction, the artist manages to introduce a new subgenre to the country music umbrella, what he likes to call “Trailer Trap”. Read more about his backstory and how he grew up listening to country music with his grandma here.

Take a listen to Blanco Brown below and keep up with him by following along on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook.

NYCS First Impression: Blanco Brown’s Debut Self Titled EP

Blanco Brown

The country music world better make some room, because Blanco Brown is certainly redefining the genre. The brand-new artist released his self-titled EP today (May 31) via Broken Bow Records, and if its success is anything like that of his widely received debut single, ‘The Git Up’, it could mark a very unique and timely twist on what we know and love as country music.

Brown’s sound has been self-defined as “trailer trap” – part trailer park, part trap music, an ingenious genre of his very own which is heavily influenced by two of his greatest musical influences- Johnny Cash and Outkast.

Through the songs on this EP, such as ‘Ghett Ol Memories’ and ‘Georgia Power’, he manages to give you a glimpse into his childhood, split between the urban ‘hood and summers spent with relatives in the small rural town of Butler, GA., while at the same time seamlessly blurring the lines between hip hop and country, two genres that have always been thought of as polar opposites.

“I don’t necessarily think of the sound as being genre-breaking,” he says in his bio. “I think of it as being culture-bonding. If you listen to the messages of these songs, you’ll find it’s about the things we all go through as humans, not about race.”

“The Git Up”, his debut single released on May 2nd, 2019, has caused an overwhelming outbreak of attention to Brown, just in time for the release of his new EP. This undeniably catchy and loveable dance-along song has its own fun choreography, as posted in an instructional video on Brown’s YouTube channel, and has even led to ‘The Git Up Challenge’, consisting of swarms of online fans posting their rendition of the dance moves. Comments on the tutorial read ‘Cha Cha slide meets Old Town Road’, and ‘Country Weddings will never be the same.”

In songs such as ‘CountryTime’, and ‘TN Whiskey’, Brown mixes his stellar vocals with catchy hip hop beats that sneak in when you least expect it, and completely change the entire feel of the songs, giving them the best of both worlds.

“Making trailer-trap music really feels liberating to me because I want to bring people together. That’s what this music stands for: unity. It’s multiple influences and sounds and styles, all coming together,” Brown continues.

Brown’s authenticity, gift for detailed story-telling, artistic mind and diverse upbringing are the perfect combination for songs that will capture the hearts of many who can relate to his stories, are fascinated by his new self-made genre, and simply just want some music to listen to have a good time.

Blanco Brown Introduces ‘The Git Up’ and Trailer Trap Music

Blanco Brown

J. Kaviar

We are certain that you haven’t yet heard of Blanco Brown but by the end of summer, everyone will be doing ‘The Git Up’ at their backyard BBQs and tailgates. Brown split his childhood listening to hip hop in Atlanta and country music during the summers with his grandmother in Butler, GA. This singer-songwriter and producer works to combine both lifestyles and genres, collectively creating “Trailer Trap” part trailer park/part Trap music.

His debut single ‘The Git Up’ is not only the catchiest song we’ve heard in a while but also has a dance to go along with it that is already making its viral way across social media. Check out this news anchor from Charlotte, North Carolina doing the dance which has already garnered over 740k views.

This choreographed dance is super simple to learn but Brown posted a tutorial just last week, which will give you the chance to be the best at the dance moves before all of your friends. People are already learning ‘The Git Up’ and the videos across all social media platforms are garnering millions of views. The track is on Spotify’s Wild Country Playlist and fans can look forward to Brown’s debut EP which will be released on May 31st on Broken Bow Records. In the past, he has produced music in the hip-hop and pop world for Chris Brown, Fergie, and Pitbull.

It will be interesting to see how this new subgenre of country music is received, especially after the controversy and phenomenon that happened with “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X. Watch the video above and tag us in your version of ‘The Git Up’.
