NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Country rock songwriter Bryan Fox makes a celebratory return with fellow Kentucky natives Buffalo Stille and Ron Clutch from the Grammy-nominated, Southern alternative hip hop group Nappy Roots, releasing a new collaborative song called "That's About Me." Produced by studio veteran Malcolm Springer (Matchbox 20, Collective Soul, Boz Skaggs), and recorded at Nashville's House of Blues studios, the new rollicking summer song is the third collaboration between the trio, and likely their best yet. The song gives its listener a reason to celebrate the return of summer, while paying homage to the popular song themes and instrumentation you get by mixing a little bit of country rock, with a little bit of hip hop.
"Our sessions together are just so fun," said Fox. "We're all just friends making music together and having a great time. It's as simple as that. I think our different perspectives are what makes our collaborations so special. We are all seeing these different viewpoints come together, combining to make a song idea a lot better than anything we could have done alone. It's beyond my comprehension to believe that everyone isn't able to grasp this concept. We can all benefit from celebrating each other's differences."
"That's About Me" came together somewhat more abnormally than previous collaborations between these gracious Kentucky boys. This time, veteran producer Malcolm Springer took a shot at laying down some of the instrumental tracks first. Shortly thereafter, Fox, B.Stille, and Clutch cleverly adapted their lyrics to Springer's instrumental mix, and in almost no time they were in Nashville's House of Blues studio together again, making the song a reality.
"This song isn't necessarily what country music needs, but it's what the world needs right now," said producer and co-songwriter, Malcolm Springer. "What a great bunch of guys to write and record with!"

Creativity, inclusion and a strong sense of family runs deep in the Fox household. The country rocker's teenage daughters, Dylan (16) and Pepper Fox (14), created most of the artwork used in the song's animated lyric video, premiering June 19. The PG-themed video was produced by Clayton Luce of Darkstar Production Company, with additional artwork provided by renowned Louisville-based artist Jeral Tidwell.
"Everyone is just so eager to get back to having a little joy, lightheartedness, and fun in their lives, so that's what is so special about this project for me," Fox continued. "Every time I listen to the song, or watch the animated video with my daughter's artwork, it just makes me smile! I know we are all in need of reasons to smile and be happy right about now!"
