Hard to believe we still have a few readers who don’t know much about Haley & Michaels. This is a duo that you really need to keep an eye on! I first told you about Haley & Michaels back in February, 2013, after seeing them in concert at 12th and Porter in Nashville. [See that article by clickinghere]. To say we were impressed would be a huge understatement. We knew there were some exciting things in store for Ryan Michales and Shannon Haley.
They recently sent out a little recap about what has been going on with their career, and I have to share it with all of you. As you will see, these two are quick to credit their fans for a huge portion of their success. Seems many artists often fail to recognize their fans as a driving force in their careers. Haley & Michaels haven’t forgotten their fans. Here is the recap, and some news they wanted to share with all of us.
To give a quick recap: When we first emailed you months ago about joining our “campaign team” to help us launch our single, we never dreamt it could have actually worked so well! We officially give you 90% of the credit (we’ll take a solid 5% each) but without you it could never have been such a success story.
Just Another Love Song sold over 25,000 copies, it was in the Top 20 on The Highway for 12 weeks, our video was #1 for 7 straight weeks on CMT Pure, and in the Top 20 on GAC for 15 straight weeks. Some major market radio stations started playing the song on their stations and we are now on a national radio tour and will be launching the song to FM stations some time in November!
As a result, we got signed to William Morris (one of the biggest booking agencies in the world) and have gotten to open up shows for Martina McBride and many other amazing artists we love. Your downloading, sharing and commenting on The Highway got our song off the ground and gave it the chance to be heard. Thank you!!
On to the NEW exciting news!! First, our first official EP release is happening!! Tuesday October 21st! We’ve been working on this EP for almost a year with Kyle Jacobs and Matt McClure (Lee Brice’s producers) and we are so excited to share each song with you.
AND!!! We’re going back on The Highway!!! On the same day our EP releases, Sirius XM The Highway is premiering our new song “One More Night To Break”, co-written with The Warren Brothers!!
We are hoping to have your support again, as we launch our EP and our new single on The Highway!!
We will send you more information on the release day, but right now we just wanted to let you know that you have made such a difference in our lives and careers, and we are so grateful. There really is power in numbers and it really does take a village. Thanks for being a part of it!
I think my favorite song from this duo will always be the first one I heard, “The Price I Pay”. But, running a very close second is “Just Another Love Song”. Check out the video to that one below. You can see the video to “The Price I Pay”, by clicking here.
