Nashville based country pop singer Abi has released her new single and music video for “Matches” via Vevo and all digital retailers. The single is Abi’s first official single release since her 2015 EP “17”.
I truly cannot even put into words how ecstatic I am to be releasing new music!” says Abi. “It’s been such an incredible experience working with so many talented beings and finding my own voice and sound. ‘Matches’ was truly the beginning of this discovery and I’m excited for you all to embark on this journey with me.”
“Matches” was a fan favorite during Abi’s set when she opened for Pentatonixand Us The Duo late last year, and the long-awaited single has landed a spot on CMT’s Artist Discover Program…the official music video will receive over 6 weeks of airplay on CMT Music, officially beginning July 18th.
The single is only the beginning of new music for the singer – Abi has been in the studio for the better part of this year writing and recording new music, and is set to release a new EP in the fall.
The EP is very honest and genuine to my own experiences with love; the good and the bad. It’s taken me some time to get it where I wanted, but these pieces of work are my proudest yet and I can only hope when it is heard that you, as a listener, will hear a part of yourself telling the song’s stories!” states Abi
In 2015, Abi spent her summer after high school opening for Kelly Clarkson alongside Pentatonix and Eric Hutchison, and has since toured with Frankie Ballard, Eli Young Band, and in 2016 she opened up for Pentatonix and Us The Duo for the US run of the PTX World Tour.
Last summer, Abi performed at Nascar events across the country, and opened for Sam Hunt, Phil Vassar, Mo Pitney and more at the 30th Annual Country Fest in Cadott, WI. Abi is currently in the studio wrapping up her new EP, expected to release in the fall of 2017.
