Warner Music Nashville rising artist Randall King is stripping things down with his new EP, Live at Brooklyn Bowl Nashville, available everywhere today (LISTEN HERE). Recorded at Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl in 2021, the EP features six acoustic versions of tracks originially released on King’s major label debut album Shot Glass.
“I got a chance to take over Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville and make some acoustic recordings of some of the favorite songs off the new record Shot Glass,” said King. "I picked these songs because they became a staple at our live shows. They're all upbeat, with passion and energy that I love. They're the newest songs on the record that weren't part of another project, so I wanted to showcase these six."
Produced by Bart Butler and Ryan Gore, Shot Glass includes 11 standout songs, seven of which co-written by King, that provide different POVs of those at a bar (LISTEN HERE). The top shelf concept record was recently named to Billboard’s All Genre 50 Best Albums of 2022 (So Far), making King the only male country artist to make the list. The outlet stated, “the skillfully crafted album proves King has a well-defined musical vision, and the musicianship to execute it” Whiskey Riff also added the record to their Best Country Albums of 2022 So Far list, describing it as “a honky-tonk masterpiece…Randall knocked it out of the park.”
Deemed a “talented newcomer to watch” by Rolling Stone as well as making Pandora and Country Now’s 2022 Country Artist to Watch lists, King has accumulated 150+ million global career streams to date.
