Mercury Nashville’s Travis Denning released a summer-ready new track, “Tank Of Gas And A Radio Song” on Friday, available HERE. Denning co-wrote the song with Nathan Spicer and Shane Minor, and delivers a driving guitar groove with a relatable sense of sentimentality for a past relationship, recalling memories of road trips taken together, with a gravelly vocal.
Denning is continuing to share new music with fans as his current single, “After A Few,” climbs the country radio charts. The new single has been praised by Rolling Stone as “a showcase of his songwriting chops and the guitar licks he woodshedded at backroad bars in his native Georgia” and was spotlighted as one of their “10 Best Country And Americana Songs To Hear Now.”
“This song has been one of my favorites since the day we wrote it, and easily one of my favorites to play live,” said Denning. “I love that the title seems like it would be your stereotypical party song, but I think the approach of the lyrics will surprise people. I hope a lot of people dig this song this summer.”
