Everette To Release New Project Oct. 2

Everette (Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia) have announced that part one of their two-part album produced by Luke Laird, Kings of the Dairy Queen Parking Lot – Side A, is set for release this Friday, Oct. 2.

“We don’t care where you come from,” Rupard said. “Whether you’re a city person or a country person or from Mars, you’re always welcome at the Everette party.”

Rooted in country, rock & roll, southern storytelling, and heartland hooks, Everette features two Kentucky natives who write their own songs, play their own instruments, and proudly blur the boundaries between themselves and their audience. For them, music is all about community and connection. Named after George Clooney’s philosophy-spouting, folk-singing character in O Brother, Where Art Thou, the two co-wrote all 14 songs on Side A and Side B, teaming up with writers like Bryan Simpson, the Warren Brothers, Brent Cobb, Matt Jenkins, and Bobby Pinson for the fun.

To celebrate the announce of Kings of the Dairy Queen Parking Lot tonight, Everette will be hosting a charitable livestream show sponsored by Country Fuzz at Nashville venue The Basement with proceeds from the show going to Second Harvest Food Bank. The guys will also host their “Seven Songs in Seven Days” series beginning Oct. 5, where the duo will acoustically perform a different song from the album each night at 7 p.m. CT on Instagram Live. Following the performance, they will chat with co-writers about the songs, the process, etc. Upon album release, Everette will be announcing details of their “Love Your Neighbor” series – a series of backyard shows where they (safely) perform for friends, family, fans, and neighbors.
