CMT Music Premieres "Wildflowers on The Highway"
New record from Szlachetka, Heart of My Hometown, out February 16
February 5, 2018, Nashville, TN … CMT Music has premiered the latest music video off Heart of My Hometown, the upcoming record from Szlachetka. “Wildflowers on the Highway,” one of the more intimate, acoustic tracks off the album, features an appearance by co-writer Katelyn Clampett. Heart of My Hometown can be pre-ordered via PledgeMusic and will be available across all digital platforms February 16.
Heart of My Hometown, the sophomore album from Rolling Stone “Artist You Need to Know,” Szlachetka (pronounced SLA-HET-KA), is a mix of modern Americana, 70's California rock, and singer/songwriter sentiments. Produced by Grammy-winning producer David Bianco (Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Lucinda Williams), the album shines new light on Szlachetka as a singer, prolific songwriter, storyteller, and fiery lead guitarist. Its touchstones include the charged roots-rock of Tom Petty and the warm, acoustic sounds of Jackson Browne.
Rolling Stone describes the forthcoming album as "a soundtrack for both the highway and the heartland...a collection of road-dog roots-rockers and Americana ballads inspired by the people (and places) he's left behind in the rearview mirror."
“Storytelling lyrics, guitar prowess and vocals that sound raw and polished in the same breath,” The Boot writes. “He draws on Americana influences, rock-country qualities and even a few pop tendencies to create a song that’s rooted in folk and country music, yet raised to new lyrical, musical and emotional heights.”
Upcoming Nashville appearances:
