Country Newcomer To Appear At CMA Fest Next Week

NASHVILLE, TN (May 31, 2024) – LECADE today releases his new song “You Get Me” via Big Machine Records. An honest admission of sadness, bad behavior and accountability for the state he’s in, “You Get Me,” continues the singer/songwriter’s streak of vulnerable songs that don’t shy away from shining a light on the ugly truth.

“I’m super excited to be able to put out this track, and I think a lot of the OG LECADE fans are going to enjoy it,” shares LECADE. “We worked really hard bringing this one together, and I’m so happy it’s making its way out into the world.”

LECADE has been absorbing three chords and the truth since he was a kid, watching his dad play in dives and legendary honky tonks across the south. Marrying his signature raw, tell-it-like-it-is storytelling with Pop-infused beats in his own music, the young artist has held tight to that tried-and-true musical ideology he was raised on. It’s on full display in “You Get Me,” which finds LECADE on the lonely side of a break-up, leaning on vices to cope. The contemporary track co-written by LECADE, Gabe Foust and Jacob Hackworth was the young talent’s latest collaboration with producer Austin Shawn, following his retrospective “Bed We Made” and “Next Town Over.”

With more than 3M monthly listeners and 100M streams globally to date, LECADE is just getting started. He will make multiple appearances at CMA Fest next week, with a performance at Whiskey Jam on Thursday, June 6, and the Good Molecules Reverb Stage on Saturday, June 8. He will also perform at upcoming festivals throughout the summer including Tailgate N’ Tallboys, Festival of the Bells, GoldenSky Festival and more.

ABOUT LECADE: Splitting his upbringing between Winfield, Louisiana and Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Cade Brinkley, better known as LECADE grew up watching his dad play in dives and legendary honky tonks (like Tootsies) across the south with his band. Falling in love with music at such an early age, LECADE began consuming music of all kinds before converting from an avid listener to a creator himself. In high school he began creating music in his bedroom by buying beats from YouTube creators and writing lyrics over them—which caught the attention of Nashville and TikTok alike. Now, the Country artist is determined to be the next to defy genres, successfully marrying Pop-Country with just enough Hip-Hop style. Averaging more than 2.4 million monthly listeners, he is growing his streams and has accumulated more than 100 million streams to date. With his unique, yet somehow familiar vibe, made for mainstream and outlaw Country fans alike, LECADE has produced his most recent “Next Town Over,” his popular single “When I’m Gone” and songs from his debut Country album, Chasing Ghosts. Now signed to Big Machine Records, LECADE is currently in the studio working on new music.
