Leaving Austin has debuted a brand new track and music video, “Never Found You”, co-written by the band with the late, great busbee and reigning ACM Songwriter of the Year Hillary Lindsey.
“Last year was tough y’all.. no doubt,” the band says collectively when thinking about this song. “But we’d be lying if we said it was the toughest year we’ve been through. Struggling with darkness, anxiety, and depression is something we don’t talk about much, but have struggled with for years. Through one of the most trying times that this world is going through, some incredible things happened in our hearts. We recognized who was gonna be there for us, who our light in the darkness was, and that there are people put in our lives for a reason.
Whether it be a wife, a new friend, an old friend, or God, we were found by someone that helped us get back on track. We wrote about that in this song with two incredible humans Hillary Lindsey and busbee, and hope it can be a connection for you to whoever those people are for you… and don’t forget to tell ’em…the ones you would be lost without…the hand to hold that gets you through. We hope y’all love ‘Never Found You’.”
Hailing from a small farming town of Visalia, CA, and now Nashville residents, Leaving Austin is forging a path in country music that’s solely their own. Comprised of Austin Machado, Davis Forney and Michael Stevens, the trio’s smooth vocals and distinctive songwriting have definitely made them a sought after band in Nashville, regularly writing and recording with some of Nashville’s finest writers/producers. The band has amassed over 10 million streams and released their Southern Gold EP in 2019 after signing a worldwide co-publishing deal under a partnership agreement with Sea Gayle Music and BMG Nashville.
