With a rich, distinctive voice and a knack for writing powerful songs with catchy melodies, singer/songwriter Austin Merrill is proving to be one of country music's brightest rising stars. As evidenced in the new single, “Whiskey & Water,” his unique sound is both traditional and modern, a seamless blend with mass appeal that feels just as much at home on stage as it does on the farm.
"Whiskey & Water" is the title track from Merrill's debut EP, produced by multiple Grammy winner Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Reba). The project features five songs written solely by the artist and neatly merges his 90's country upbringing and contemporary songwriting with Bright’s clear musical vision.
The first single off the EP, "You'll Come Knocking," was featured on Spotify's New Boots Playlist and has garnered over 400,000 streams. The music video for “You’ll Come Knocking” had a World Premiere on CMT and was highlighted as part of the "CMT Next Up Now” series, and also garnered over 20,000 views in 24 hours on Country Rebel.
