NASHVILLE, TN (June 20, 2016) – RYAN FOLLESE made a splash on Friday (6/17) with the launch of “Float Your Boat,” which flowed across airwaves throughout the day on SiriusXM’s The Highway. The broadcast continued at Margaritaville in downtown Nashville as fans joined for a special Happy Hour and live performance. The new track is already making a splash on the iTunes Country Songs chart, climbing to #16 and remaining in the Top 50 through the weekend.
Diving into the genre honestly with his debut Country single, the former Hot Chelle Rae frontman grew up south of Nashville with established Country songwriter parents Keith Follese (Tim McGraw “Something Like That” / Faith Hill “The Way You Love Me”) and Adrienne Follese (Martina McBride “I Love You” / Lady Antebellum “Long Gone”). Ryan inherited their lyrical sensibilities, penning “Float Your Boat” and is credited for Hot Chelle Rae’s #1 pop smash “Tonight Tonight.”
Currently in the studio with producers Cameron Montgomery and Dann Huff, Ryan is writing and recording his full length album for Big Machine Label Group.
