Singled Out (1/2/2012)

Sony Music Nashville looks to have a busy promotional schedule early in 2012, with a handful of new singles slated to hit radio. First up is Miranda Lambert’s “Over You,” the second single from her acclaimed Four The Record collection. Lambert penned the deeply personal song with her husband Blake Shelton, about Blake’s brother who died in a car accident.

Miranda says, “I’ve never cried writing a song, and I don’t know that I ever will again. After we wrote it, Blake said he couldn’t record this song for himself or sing it on stage every night but he would be honored for me to. ‘Over You’ is one of the most special songs I’ll ever be a part of.” Starting January 12, Lambert will kick off her headlining On Fire tour in Rockford, IL with Chris Young and Jerrod Niemann.

Across the hall at Arista Records, Ronnie Dunn’s “Let The Cowboy Rock” will go for adds January 16. The third single from Dunn’s self-titled debut solo album, it follows up the reactive “Cost Of Livin'” which was the theme of episodes of Dr. Phil and The Doctors in December.

Also vying for adds in these early weeks of January is Show Dog-Universal’s JT Hodges, whose new single is “Goodbyes Made You Mine.” Back in November, Hodges made his Grand Ole Opry debut and his single “Hunt You Down” climbed to No. 28 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart.

Also part of the Sony camp, BNA will be rolling out “Hot Mess,” the debut from newcomer Tyler Farr, in time for a February 6 add date. Farr’s song “That’s What They’re Bitin’ On” was also an unofficial single, and made it to No. 46 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart.
