NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 14, 2017) – Singer-songwriter Mike Ryan will release Blink You’ll Miss It, his third full-length studio album on October 20th. The Texas native’s new collection of songs describes life and relationships and how they change over time. Striking emotional ballad “Sad Song” is Sirius XM’s featured Highway Find and is available now HERE. Blink You’ll Miss It is the follow up to Bad Reputation which yielded three #1 singles on the Texas Music Chart and New Male Vocalist of the Year by Texas Radio.

Blink You’ll Miss It, produced by Brent Anderson, highlights Ryan’s impressive ability to craft compelling narratives that resonate with audiences. Lead single “New Hometown,” racked up 4 Million+ streams on Spotify and premiered on Rolling Stone Country. The track, which recounts the painful memories of an ex-girlfriend during a visit back home was also featured by Taste Of Country, Sounds Like Nashville, Nash Country Daily and more.

Ryan’s heart-gripping stories, catchy hooks and pop sensibilities can be heard on title track “Blink You’ll Miss It” and in real-life account “Damn Good Goodbye,” a song that recalls the memory of a final send-off with his old high school buddies. “One Way” written by Chris Stapleton and Lee Thomas Miller, accentuates Ryan’s vocal stylings with a rich and resonating sound that draws the listener in. “The Rewrite” originally written as a love song, eventually had writers Ryan, Chris DuBois and Brent Anderson flipping the script to transform the tune into a rowdy anthem for broken hearts and includes a shredding guitar solo by Brad Paisley.

The San Antonio, TX native’s talent has captured the attention of  fans in the Lonestar state and it hasn’t gone unnoticed in Nashville. Signed as a writer to Sea Gayle Music Publishing since 2013, his latest chart-topping cut includes “Last Time For Everything,” a song he co-wrote with Brad Paisley, Smith Ahnquist, Chris DuBois, and Brent Anderson. Influenced early on by his grandfather’s musical ability, Ryan taught himself how to play the guitar while in college and he has since built an enviable following of avid fans, performing over 150 shows per year, including headlining shows at the iconic Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, TX. Upcoming performances include Atlanta, GA (9/14), Nashville, TN (10/11) and San Antonio, TX (10/20). For more information and for a full list of tour dates, visit www.mikeryanband.com.

Rolling Stone Magazine – Hear Mike Ryan’s Clever Breakup Song ‘New Hometown’

Singer-songwriter premieres first new song from upcoming album

“You broke my heart and drug it around my stompin’ grounds/So now I need a new hometown,” Mike Ryan sings of a blue-eyed girl from Tennessee who has turned his city into a place full of painful memories.

“New Hometown,” which the lauded musician co-wrote with Chris DuBois and Brent Anderson, is the first single released from his upcoming third studio album. Ryan says it wasn’t based on any one true story, but the lyrics certainly resonate with him every time he goes home to San Antonio.

“I broke up with a girl, my first love, shortly after I moved away from home,” Ryan tells Rolling Stone Country. “Since I’ve come back to town and seen those places where we used to run around, the song makes a whole lot more sense. You go to places where as soon as you walk in the door, it takes you back five years ago to when you were there with her.”

DuBois and Anderson, who also wrote eight songs with Ryan on his last album, Bad Reputation, are featured on a handful of other tracks on the Texas native’s upcoming LP. The new project, which doesn’t yet have a title or release date, is full of love songs and story songs, Ryan reports, and caters to fans of his last collection.

“It’s going to be a familiar album for people who’ve listened to Bad Reputation, but it’s definitely not going to be a carbon copy,” he says. “We’re adding some different flavors, but it’s not going to be too far off the beaten path from what I’ve released.”

Good strategy. Bad Reputation yielded three Number One singles on the Texas Music Chart and led to Ryan’s win for New Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2015 Texas Regional Radio Awards.
