TRAVIS DENNING DELIVERS DOUBLE-EDGED BREAK-UP ANTHEM “ABBY”
Mercury Nashville Recording Artist’s Current Top 20 Single “After A Few” Continues To Soar At Country Radio
Singer/Songwriter Shares More Details Exclusively With PEOPLE As He Is Tapped For Opening Slots In 2020 With Sam Hunt And Dustin Lynch
Nashville, TN – February 14, 2020 – Mercury Nashville recording artist Travis Denning is serving up the ultimate break-up anthem in time for Valentine’s Day with his new track “ABBY,” available to listen today here. Written by Ashley Gorley, Matt Jenkins and Chase McGill, the track marks singer/songwriter Denning’s first outside recording. The track follows his current Top 20 single “After A Few,” that continues to ascend at country radio and has garnered over 44 million streams worldwide, as Denning continues to release music to meet fan demand.
Sitting down with PEOPLE to exclusively share more details behind “ABBY,” Denning’s new “wickedly fun good-riddance romp” takes listeners on the journey of a break up, and when posed with the question if there is someone new, the snap back is “yes, and her name is ‘ABBY.’ That’s ‘Any Body But You,’” in a lyrical anagram that has crowds singing along during Denning’s live set already.
“The minute I heard this song I knew I had to record it, because my instant reaction was ‘Man, I wish I had written that,’” shared Denning. “I feel like anyone who has gone through a breakup can relate to it in some way and wishing they had a response as bold as ’Any Body But You.’ We’ve played it out on the road live a few times and the reaction has been wild. I’m excited that more people are getting to hear this song. It’s a fun one.”
Following kicking off 2020 as direct support on Dustin Lynch’s STAY COUNTRY TOUR, Denning will join Sam Hunt this summer as a special guest on his THE SOUTHSIDE SUMMER TOUR. The tour will kick off on May 28 in Charlotte, NC at PNC Music Pavilion, with coast to coast stops through September this year.
A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, singer/songwriter Travis Denning’s current Top 20 single “After A Few” follows his Top 40 debut single “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs.” Denning has previously opened shows for Cole Swindell, Alan Jackson, LANCO, Riley Green and his first headlining “Heartbeat Of A Small Town Tour.” With over 134 million streams worldwide, Denning has been spotlighted by Billboard for his “future star power” and was selected this past year as an Opry NextStage recipient and CMA KixStart Artist, as he makes his mark within the industry. Inspired at a young age, Denning developed a love for country, pop, rock and heavy metal and started playing local bars from the age of 16, as he built a strong following from his distinctive songs and raucous guitar solos. A prolific writer with an unquestionable stage presence, Denning moved to Nashville and secured outside cuts by Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Michael Ray and Chase Rice. Denning’s newest songwriting cut includes Michael Ray’s current Top 25 single “Her World or Mine” that is continuing to climb the charts at Country radio.
