Georgia-born and raised singer/songwriter Ethan Payne released his “Made It Out of Georgia” single on Craig Campbell’s Grindstone Records in July, and today, his follow up single, “Hey Y’All,” hits across all available digital platforms. Ethan wrote the hard-driving song with Nick Alligood and Marty Evans, and Grady Saxman produced the track. Listen HERE.
“HEY Y’ALL, I’m so excited about this next single! I’ve been working so hard on getting new music ready, as we take a turn for the more real/country side of things when it comes to my songs,” said Ethan. “You can expect more anthems and true stories from me in the near future!”
A self-described “old soul,” Ethan has drawn inspiration from acts as diverse as Chris Young, George Strait, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Chris Stapleton, and wrote his first song at the age of 14. He was diagnosed at the age of 18 months with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs. Through sheer determination and a disciplined work ethic, and with the support of family, friends and musical mentors, Ethan has pushed forward, following his passion and encouraging others to do the same.
At the age of 13, Ethan was called up on stage at a concert in Dallas, TX by country music superstar Luke Bryan. The two began a casual friendship that night which still lasts to this day. Ethan has since gone on to open shows for numerous established artists.
Ethan was voted Georgia Country Teen Artist of the Year in 2020, an award for which he has been nominated every year since 2017 by the Georgia Country Awards. He appeared on the 17th season of American Idol on ABC-TV in the spring of 2019, where he reunited with Luke Bryan to perform a rendition of the Bryan hit “Do I.” He recently moved to Nashville, where he has immersed himself in the music culture, co-writing songs with hit songwriters for his upcoming album. When he’s not touring, writing or actively promoting his career, Ethan participates in a variety of events as an Official Ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
