NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 13, 2023) -- Country singer-songwriter Whey Jennings croons like a Cowboy on the sentimental love song, “Daredevil,” the new single from his forthcoming EP, Just Before The Dawn, due out September 22 by Dirt Rock Empire.

“I wrote this song for my beautiful wife,” Whey said. The idea and lyrics just came flowing out of my heart like honey from a hive because of how true it is in reality. I’m her Daredevil and she is my rose petal!”

Fans can watch the new music video now on the Cowboy Lifestyle Network until its premiere on Whey’s YouTube channel this Friday at 12pm ET, along with being featured on CMT.com’s music videos page. The video is also set to roll out on The Heartland Network after the release date.

“Some really good friends of mine, singer Justin Jeansonne and his fiance Jaden Barnett, were the actors in the video, which we filmed at the Country Rebel ranch in Tennessee,” Whey continued. “They are some of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met in my life, and I think they perfectly captured the essence of the song.”

“Daredevil” is one of six new songs from the EP, and the third single released in 2023 following summer releases of “Old Country Song” and “Wild Child.” Making a monumental comeback since 2022, Whey demonstrates next level songwriting abilities on the new EP. The grandson of Outlaw country pioneers Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, Whey is charting his own course in life and with his music. Several of the songs on the forthcoming Just Before The Dawn EP continue to tell his story of redemption, with help from his faith, family and friends. With his newfound lifestyle at-hand, Whey is already beginning to establish his own musical legacy within his iconic Jennings family tree.

“People like us, traditional country music fans, are a dying breed, and by us I don’t mean just artists,” Whey explained. “There’s a large cult following for old country music loving men and women and we are all like-minded individuals, that when old country songs are played, it brings us all together. With me and fans, I ain’t never gone wrong with an old country song so you can plan on me to keep the tradition alive for as long as I can.”
