When it comes to male voices in country music, it doesn’t get much better than Jacob Bryant. And in case that isn’t laid out enough for us on his 2019 full-length debut, Practice What I Preach, the Georgia bred singer-songwriter is about to further cement his spot in the genre and blow everyone away with the release of his latest single that drops on Friday, February 21st.
Co-written by Bryant, Wyatt McCubbin and Jami Grooms, “Tell Me” is everything that country music fans – both new and old – have been looking for. And thanks to Bryant’s matchless musical style, even non-country fans will have plenty of reasons to love this new song. The dream team that is Bryant, McCubbin and Grooms, deliver the gut-wrenching reality of agonizing over not knowing where one’s relationship status lies and the pain that comes from waiting and wondering. In the end, though, the heartbreaking truth of the matter is that even the answer we don’t want is better than no answer at all, and this trio of gifted songwriters tackle that head on with lyrics like, “Maybe I don’t wanna know the answer, but just tell me where I fall/baby, tell me” and “But don’t keep me waiting or wondering if I’m wrong/baby, tell me you’re gone.”
Bryant’s vocals are filled with a burning passion and raw emotion that is as authentic as that southern accent of his, and like a good whiskey leaves you coming back for glass after glass. Whether you’re a fan of Bryant’s previous releases or this is your first introduction to the “Pour Whiskey On My Grave” singer, I can assure you that “Tell Me” will not disappoint and leave you hitting that repeat button. This is the song country radio needs right now.
