Viral sensation Heath Sanders has a new single, “Down on the South,” and it’s country as dirt.
Sanders is a former Arkansas oilfield worker turned full-time musician whose popularity skyrocketed after a performance on The Bobby Bones Show in early 2018. Bones found a cover that Sanders put online of Chris Stapleton’s “Either Way,” loved it, and invited him to perform on his show. While on the show, Sanders sang his song, “Bloodline,” which went viral.
Since then, he has been selling out shows every weekend across the country. He’s opened up for Drake White and Corey Smith, and he has been invited to open for Bones’ own band, The Raging Idiots. Sanders has joined L3 Entertainment, management home to Justin Moore, Tyler Rich, Leah Turner and Scott Stevens, and recently signed a publishing deal with Sony ATV.
Heath sings the type of country I love. Nothing pretentious. The honesty comes through the voice, and the lyrics.
As far as the new single, “Down on the South,” Heath said:
“Those nights were so much more than just hiding out to drink a beer with your buddies, yee hawing on a tailgate. They were the introduction to who you really were and what you would become. They were where you found yourself…. where you tapped into emotions and philosophy you had no idea you were capable of, a constant state of self-discovery. Hell, I don’t know anybody who wouldn’t want that back.”
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
