Foot-stomping entertainer Drake White “totally switches gears on us, delivering a muscular vocal performance that digs deep – really deep – yielding a motherlode of emotion” (All Access) in his soulful new single “Makin’ Me Look Good Again.” Going for adds at Country radio today, the song written by White along with Monty Criswell and Shane Minor, is already receiving major kudos from press with Taste of Country raving “very few songs any singer has released in 2016 — carry the weight of this heartbreakingly beautiful ballad.” Get it here.
“This song is deeply personal to me,” expressed White. “The inspiration for this song is my wife Alex. I am always a better version of myself when she is by my side and I am thankful for her every day. It is awesome that I can finally express that to the world through music.”
On the heels of K99 Colorado’s New Country already predicting the single to be “one of the biggest songs of 2017,” Country radio programmers nationwide voted in White as one of the esteemed 2017 CRS New Faces. He will join other hot up-and-coming stars at the official ceremony in their honor on February 24 during Country Radio Seminar in Nashville.
Billion dollar corporations have also taken notice of White’s talent as Geico is currently showcasing “Heartbeat” in their national television commercial featuring Dallas Cowboy’s tight end Jason Witten. The spot premiered on Thanksgiving Day during the highly-rated Dallas Cowboys win vs Washington Redskins game on FOX. Watch it here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBiZJNhfpD4&app=desktop.
His debut album SPARK immediately shot to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Country Albums chart upon its release earlier this year. The album features White’s Top 15 hit “Livin’ the Dream” as well as fan-favorites “It Feels Good” and “Heartbeat.” One Country has named SPARK as one of their “10 Country Albums We’re Most Thankful for This Year” saying “Drake’s gritty, soulful voice is enough to get any Country fan standing at full salute. His debut LP is impressive — it’s contemporary, plucky and never loses its way.” Fans also voted it as Taste of Country’s Album of the Year.
