Israel's Hottest Country Music Entertainer Launches Recording Career In The States
With Autobiographical Tune Due September 24, 2021
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Omer Netzer, Israel’s biggest country music entertainer and the hottest ticket among mass audiences in his home country, has announced the release of his original tune, "Country Boy.”* Reigning from The Holy City, the twenty-eight-year old trendsetter is set to make his mark in the U.S. country music scene with his debut single (“Country Boy”) set for a September, 24, 2021 release via all digital retail outlets and streaming platforms (Amazon/iTunes/Pandora Spotify/Tidal). The corresponding Pre-sale/Pre-save event begins September 17; Ed Gertler, Digital Streaming Services will spearhead the digital release campaign.
Having enjoyed overwhelming success with previous releases, Netzer’s career ambitions have moved him toward Music City, Nashville. His smokin’ hot guitar talents, combined with gritty vocals, soulful sound and a humble boyish charm set him apart as a country music heart throb to watch.
"Omer Netzer is the kind of artist that Israel should export with pride. His songs are catchy without being over sentimental; he knows how to build the layers and present them in a way that all can appreciate. It's clear this guy knows a thing or two about how to create a hit!" (YNET)
Written and produced by Netzer, “Country Boy” is an autobiographical anthem that rocks with pride—in God and a country way of life as a common thread of core beliefs. With a soundscape that combines a mix of blues and southern rock, the production highlights Netzer’s gripping vocals and impeccable electric guitar skills as attention-getters from the get-go. The storyline takes the listener down the back roads of Israel to Tennessee.
“I hear the country dyin’ on the radio.
Don't mess with this country boy.
Raise your hands, ride with me,
say no more, tell me what you believe.”
“This song is about fighting for, and defending, God, our beliefs, a wholesome way of life, and a good, ole traditional country song—all of which stand the test of time,” said Omer Netzer. “I feel a deep connection with ‘Country Boy;’ it mirrors my strong faith and direction, and I own it.”
"Omer Netzer wins hearts again and again…in the last few years, it's been impossible to ignore his magical voice, which is heard nonstop on radio stations." (Mako)
Omer is preparing to introduce his third studio album. As an early introduction to the project, he released "Whiskey" (January 2021) and the upbeat, touching love song “Sweet Alice” (December 2019); both of which have swiftly become fan favorites.
Omer has scheduled tour dates in his home country throughout the summer, with plans to return to Nashville, as “home to stay,” in September 2021.
