NASHVILLE, Tenn. — CCB Nashville introduces the latest recording from its flagship act Cash Creek. The band will release “Hard Time”* featuring a special vocal performance by Larry Stewart (former lead singer of Restless Heart). The trio’s fourth release since its reformation in 2012, the “Hard Time” (Radio Mix) will be distributed to country radio on Tuesday, July 6, 2021 (PlayMPE) and available via all digital retail and streaming platforms (Amazon/Apple Music/iTunes/ Pandora/Spotify/Tidal) on Friday, August 6. (Radio Promotion spearheaded by Jennifer Blair/Distribution by CD Baby).
With a genuine admiration for modern country of yesterday, Cash Creek demonstrates its appreciation for Restless Heart as 80s country music trendsetters and hitmakers. Produced by Cash Creek Band lead singer Kimo Forrest, the remix recreates the magic of the original tune (written by Stewart, Tim DuBois and Mike Noble) as featured on the Restless Heart WHEELS album which boasted four No. 1 hits. Reminiscent of classics, the recording recalls renowned vocal groups (Restless Heart/Eagles/Pure Prairie League) enriched by drums, keys and harmony electric guitars. Cash Creek Band members [Kimo Forrest (Vocals/Guitar/Keys), James Blaylock (Drums) and Monty Devita (Vocals/Bass)] perform on the track.
“When Kimo told me Cash Creek was cutting ‘Hard Time,’ I smiled big,” said Larry Stewart. “While a fan favorite ‘by request’ at our shows, it was never a spotlight track; so to put it in the forefront as a fresh new and contemporary recording, and single, is a thrill. I look forward to rocking it with this band in live performances.”
“This is a ‘pinch me’ moment for all of us in the band,” added Cash Creek lead singer and producer Kimo Forrest.“We have been Restless Heart fans since the release of their first self-titled EP. Their incredible harmony vocals, quality musicianship and award-winning songs have been a benchmark for Cash Creek. Having Larry join us on our re-recording is truly a dream come true and a highlight of our career.”
Cash Creek will host a special listening party as part of its Cash Creek Club Live grand opening to be held at the Nashville Palace on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at 7pm. Larry Stewart, Mark Wills, Megan Mullins, RT Johnson and The Rollers among others are slated to perform.
