Returning with his latest single "Dirt On Me", a country anthem that breaks free from the clichés of the genre, offering listeners a sonic experience of sheer autonomous defiance. With a commitment to remaining relatable and authentic, Colt Graves delivers a track that is both invigorating and memorable.
Drawing inspiration from artists like Shinedown, Graves infuses his music with a diverse range of influences. "Dirt on Me" combines folk storytelling, pop hooks, hip-hop cadences, modernist beats, and classic country instruments, resulting in a captivating and exhilarating sound. It's a testament to Graves' ability to blend genres seamlessly and create a unique musical identity.
Recorded in Nashville with producer and engineer Jake Parshall, "Dirt on Me" showcases Graves' impeccable attention to detail and commitment to high-quality production. The song's release marks a significant milestone in Graves' career, cementing his position as an emerging country sensation.
Speaking on the new single, Graves explains – “Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, it just isn't good enough for some people?Dirt On Me is for the people living true to themselves and trying to do the right thing, regardless of what anyone else has to say about it. It’s a ‘fed up with the bullsh*t’ anthem and a call to confident and more prideful arms; you can’t please everyone; the harder you try, the worse you will end up. People are always going to 'Throw Dirt On You' and try to drag you down, but positivity always wins, and the best thing we can do is ignore the noise and keep moving forward.”
