NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 12, 2024) - A driving mid-tempo with his signature “pleasant baritone” (Billboard), Chancey Williams’ kicks off 2024 with his new release, “A Cowboy Who Would” - available today. The tune offers a shift in the typical “leaving kind” cowboy mentality. Instead, the message finds Williams, a former saddle bronc athlete himself, opting to hang his hat with the woman he loves, once again serving up his unique brand of “hearty music” (People). Co-written by Adam Craig, Jaden Hamilton, and Brent Anderson, “A Cowboy Who Would” marks the neo-traditional country artist’s first release in 2024 - and Williams’ first with new producer and hit songwriter Brice Long.

Give It A Listen

“I’ve been mostly releasing music I either wrote or co-wrote because it has been hard for me to find songs that really capture what I’m all about, but I loved ‘A Cowboy Who Would’ the first time I heard it,” said Williams. “Even better, the writers were kind enough to let Brice (Long, producer) and I make some small tweaks to it so it really fits me. My team and I are really excited about this one.”

The new release is already receiving support from the country music community: “A Cowboy Who Would” has either been added or will be added to more than 150 radio stations nationwide as of January 23, was added to PickleJar’s “Up All Night” program, which is syndicated on 57 Cumulus stations nationwide (many of which based in large or major markets), and is receiving airplay on Local Radio Network’s MainStream Country and Super Star Country show formats.

“A Cowboy Who Would” follows a successful string of releases in 2023. After releasing his sixth studio album, One of These Days, in March, the Wyoming native kept the music coming with new songs like “Paycheck Down,” an exploration of “betrayal and farewell” (All Country News) “I’m On the Whiskey,” and “It Ain’t You,” “a vibrant and fun song that dives into the challenges many cowboys face while trying to sustain a romantic relationship” (Wide Open Country).

One of These Days and its 12 tracks received raves from People, Billboard, Taste of Country, Whiskey Riff, Holler, Saving Country Music and more, with Whiskey Riff declaring Williams “the real deal” and “a damn good songwriter.”

Williams’ 2023 performances included a debut at the prestigious Grand Ole Opry (April - he was invited to take the Opry stage again in September), a spot on the Dr. Pepper Amp Stage during Nashville’s CMA Music Festival (June), and a rigorous tour schedule that included headlining dates and regular opening spots for artists like Parker McCollum and Ian Munsick. In December, Williams opened a performance at the National Finals Rodeo for the fifth time and performed at “The Chelsea,” the flashy 3200 seat venue at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas.
