Channing Wilson Releases New Single, Debut Album Out February 24
Singer-songwriter Channing Wilson has released his new single, “Gettin’ Outta My Mind,” which he wrote alongside Kendell Marvel. The track will be featured on his debut album, Dead Man, out on Feb. 24 via Ol’ Dog Records/Soundly Music.
“Gettin’ Outta My Mind” joins the three previously unveiled album tracks: “Sunday Morning Blues,” “Drink That Strong,” and “Blues Comin’ On.”
Wilson has written hits for Luke Combs, The Oak Ridge Boys, Travis Tritt and more. After two decades as a successful songwriter, Dead Man marks a new chapter for Wilson as he is coming into his own as an artist.
Produced by Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb, the 10-track project puts the Georgia native’s honest and empathetic voice on display as he addresses universal topics such as love, heartbreak, loneliness and human connection through a personal lens.
“Back in the Depression era, Jimmy Rogers was a big hit, and the reason why was because he sang all these sad songs that let people know they weren’t the only ones going through hard times,” shares Wilson. “There are so many people out there right now dealing with problems like mental illness, but we still don’t talk about it nearly as much as we should. So, the one thing I hope for this record is that it helps people realize that they’re not alone, that someone else feels the way they do. Because to me that’s the first step to feeling okay again.”
In celebration of the new music, Wilson will make his Grand Ole Opry debut on Feb. 25, and continue to tour this spring with shows at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley, Kansas City’s Knuckleheads, Columbus’ King of Clubs, Lexington’s Manchester Music Hall, Louisville’s Mercury Ballroom, Seattle’s Tractor Tavern and Portland’s Ponderosa Lounge & Grill, among others.
