49 Winchester Yearns For Home In New Single “Russell County Line”

Joshua Black Wilkins

For those of you still living under a rock, there’s a band out of the small town of Castlewood, Virginia, that’s formulating a sound that you will not find anywhere else…

And that’s 49 Winchester, a group that prides itself on its combination of soul, rock, and Appalachian country, led by the unique vocals of front man Isaac Gibson.

As the group is gearing up to drop their fourth studio album, Fortune Favors The Bold on May 13th, they’ve already blessed us with two new singles.

That includes lead single “Annabel,” and their brand new one out today, titled “Russell County Line.” As touring musicians who spend most of their time on the road, “Russell County Line” finds them yearning for home.

Frontman Isaac Gibson weighed in on the new project:

“Everything has to be built. And very few people are going to achieve success overnight.

We didn’t start out as a bunch of hot shot pickers out of Nashville. We started out on the ground floor… very basic songwriting and instrumentation.

But we kept working at it, always progressing in what we wanted to do and how we wanted to sound… each song better than the previous one, the show this evening better than last night.” 

May 13th can’t get here soon enough.
