It was a great pleasure to have the opportunity to talk with Ian. He truly has a great story to tell and his voice is one that country music is lucky to have. Both of his two hits mentioned below are worth adding to your music playlist. The video was well done and sounds amazing.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country music singer/songwriter and The Voice Season 19 finalist Ian Flanigan transports listeners ahead to a feel-good, relaxed summer with the release of the lyric video for his latest single, “Under A Southern Sky.” Flanigan sets the scene for those familiar hometown nights, where it doesn’t get much better than taking a drive with the windows down, sitting around a fire, and making memories. His bold vocals soar on this theme song for hard working, small town dreamers, highlighting his one-of-a-kind talent and pure creativity. The lyric video for “Under A Southern Sky” was premiered by Music Mayhem and the single is available to download and stream on all digital platforms now!
Enjoy our conversation:
“Under a Southern Sky is a song about that small town summer night feeling when you’re feeling free and rocking out,” shares Flanigan. “It’s an anthem for that good feeling, really all year round, and I hope you resonate with the vibe as much as I do.”
Flanigan recently released “Grow Up,” another lively track which features his Voice coach and country music icon Blake Shelton. He opened for Blake Shelton, kicking off the “Spring Blake 2022 Tour.”
“I can’t wait! Feeling very grateful for the opportunity to open for him and be a part of Spring Blake. Love all the new music he’s been releasing. I’m looking forward to catching up and hanging out!” shares Flanigan.
