A Reverie And Recollection Of Lost Love From A Barstool View
Available Via All Digital And Streaming Outlets-- Friday, October 23, 2020
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Country singer/songwriter and recording artist, Michael McCall (MDM Entertainment), is set to release his debut single, “He Looks Good On Her,”* in mid October. Produced by Buddy Hyatt (George Jones/Lee Greenwood/Mickey Gilley/ Tracy Lawrence) and co-written by McCall (BMI) and Scott Randall Rhodes (BMI), the original track will be available Friday, October 23, 2020 via all major digital retail and streaming outlets (Amazon/iTunes/Pandora/Spotify/Tidal). A resurge onto the country music scene, following the release of his self-titled CD release in 2017, the track dabbles in the murk of unrequited past love from the reserved seat of a barstool. The storyline is that of a happily-ever-after breakup and the realization that a former lover wears the new “look of love” well. McCall’s tenacious vocals portray an aging heartbreak and pining love to spin the familiar tale about the one that got away; simplistic production spotlights trademarked iconic country-western guitar twang performances that do-si-do with piano and pedal steel counterparts. “After sifting through a number of recordings, we kept going back to 'He Looks Good On Her.’ The entire team voted hands-down that this was the single to come out of the gate with,” said Michael McCall. “It's got a simplistic retro-country sound and an awkward storyline. The song reflects upon both the uncomfortable feeling of running into an ex, who’s sporting a ’new love glow,’ and alternatively finding comfort that her future looks good on her."
I heard she’s moved on and doing well With that ‘cross the room happy on her smile It ain’t hard to tell, she was meant for someone else He looks good on her like I did back then He’s holding on to her, man, I wish I had I still recognize those come and get me eyes If I didn’t notice I’d be blind He looks good on her
McCall is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on his sophomore recording project anticipated in spring 2021. The “He Looks Good On Her” pre-sale and pre-save event begins Friday, October 2, 2020. Dan Hagar, Mach3 Entertainment Group will spearhead the country radio promotion campaign; Ed Gerler/Digital Streaming Services will oversee digital retail distribution and streaming services.
ABOUT MICHAEL McCALL: Hailing from Washington State, singer, songwriter and country recording artist Michael McCall is truly a welcomed surprise…to the country music sector and the world. As his story would have it, Michael was born on a farm in Clifty, Arkansas in an unexpected detour off I-90 during a family trip en route from The Evergreen State to the southern sector. Michael grew up splitting time in both Washington, at the family orchard in the summer months (harvesting cherries, apples, pears, peaches and apricots) and in Florida, during the winter where he learned to fish, and trap shrimp and crab. His upbringing and lifestyle taught him early on the value of hard work and its marriage to honesty, loyalty and dedication; and these characteristics ring true in his pursuit of his music career. Engaged by the eclectic and traditional styles of Otis Redding, John Mellencamp, Bryan Adams, Dwight Yoakam, Jason Isbell, George Strait and Waylon Jennings, and a talented family of musicians (including one of his biggest influences, his father, who was a songwriter and guitarist), Michael is drawn to storylines that captivate and phrases that lure and hook the listener. While McCall’s inventive guitar chops and haunting vocals may seemingly have been inherited naturally, he has a musical style all his own. With unique phrasing and perspective, Michael writes his own truth to create a captivating story from what may have once been mundane to become incredibly interesting. With a sound that doesn’t fit in a box, his original compositions embrace a combination of new contemporary country, a touch of late 80s and 90s hits, with a healthy dose of yesterday’s classic rock. His live show kicks off with a “bang,” spotlighting driving rock rhythms and pulsing pop rock drums, breaks down to an intimate acoustic performance, featuring flavorful melodies and simplistic, sing-along lyrics, to ramp back up and conclude with a big finish. Pursing his music career as a full-time endeavor since 2017, Michael began playing guitar in various bands. He’s concentrated his focus on songwriting, has since recorded and released a self-titled album (2017), been pursued by various labels and enjoyed chart success in the UK.
