Doug is teaming up with fellow South Carolina naive, Cody Webb to launch The Palmetto Roots Tour presented by Classic Carolinas. The tour is scheduled to kick off March 02 in Myrtle Beach, SC and will highlight several hard ticket shows across the Palmetto state.
Doug McCormick releases his brand new single, “Good Beers Left,” to all digital outlets and streaming services. The track, produced by Marshall Altman (Frankie Ballard, Aaron Watson), is the follow-up to his Sweet Dixie Memory EP, and is the next step in introducing his brand of #mccormickcountry to the masses.
He says of the new track, “I’m excited to continue to tell my story with this song. I feel like it reveals a side of my artistry I haven’t really shown before. Yeah, I’m a simple, laid back kind of guy, but I do like to cut loose from time to time. That’s what this song is all about. For me, ‘Good Beers Left’ is a tip of the hat to some incredible memories, and even more than that, it’s a toast to all of the good times ahead.”
Earlier this year, McCormick enjoyed a 10-week run in the Top 3 of CMT’s 12 Pack Countdown with his video for “Dirt Road Dancin'” from the Sweet Dixie Memory EP. Shortly after, he entered the studio to record “Good Beers Left,” a song he co-wrote with fellow Nashville songwriter, Thomas Archer (“Hurricane – Luke Combs”).
A South Carolina native, Doug moved to Nashville and landed a songwriting deal with BMG/Chrysalis in 2013, and has steadily built a following through grassroots touring and his dynamic live performances around the region and beyond. With this new release, Doug’s profile continues to rise.
The official music video for “Dirt Road Dancin” will release January 10, 2017! This fan funded video tells a narrative of young, small town love and captures Doug at his best, singing a country song. The self written, “Dirt Road Dancin” comes from Doug’s latest release, Sweet Dixie Memory EP.
Doug launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his first ever music video featuring his song, “Dirt Road Dancin” on August 01, 2016. The response to Doug’s invitation to his fans to help him write the next chapter in his career led to a fully funded campaign in less than two weeks!
The campaign will run until August 29th. With an already, fully funded campaign, Doug is excited to be in the early creative stages of planning his first ever official video release!
“Thank you doesn’t say enough. I’m humbled to see my fans show up and remind me once again that they have my back. I couldn’t be any more excited to have this opportunity to get my fans involved in my career! I’m sincerely grateful to have such loyal, diehard support behind me and my music!”
To celebrate reaching this milestone, Doug kept his promise to his Facebook followers and took off cutting victory laps around Music Row William Wallace style!
