"To celebrate our Ameripolitan Music Awards nomination, and as a thank you to our supporters for a great 2019, we went into the studio in Nashville with our friends Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson to put our spin on two of our favorite classic hits. We had a blast with these and hope you enjoy them too." - The Shootouts

 

“Whitney’s version of “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” is so iconic, but we wanted to arrange it as if it were a countrypolitan hit from yesteryear. A song this sturdy holds up well, no matter how you arrange and produce it.” - Ryan Humbert, lead singer of The Shootouts
 
“ELO is one of my favorite bands of all time, and I idolize Jeff Lynne as a songwriter and producer. Giving “Don’t Bring Me Down” a try as a honky-tonk tune just felt right — and it's a ton of fun to perform live too!” - Ryan Humbert
