Hear it first at RollingStone.com/Country 24 hours early
A year after the release of his first self-titled EP, rising singer/songwriter Levi Hummon is set to release new song, “Don’t Waste The Night,” on Iconic Entertainment Records this Friday. Written by Hummon along with Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem, Hummon first introduced fans to the upbeat rolling-rhythm song produced by Jimmy Robbins during his live shows earlier this year.
“There were always these moments–growing up in a household where you’re trained to pay attention to the details of the story, with my dad as a songwriter–where I would hear a line and think, ‘ah, that would be a great song,’” shares Hummon. “It’s a habit I can’t break. I was writing with Josh and Matt, and we were drawn to the phrase ‘Don’t Waste The Night,’ and we wanted to create an anthem to encourage having a fun and spontaneous time.”
Last spring, Rolling Stone Country named Hummon one of their “New Country Artists You Need to Know,” and exclusively debuted the new track on their website today, 24 hours prior to its official release.
Lauded for his instincts and attention-grabbing sound, the 2017 Ram Truck spokesperson has hit the road hard this year, as the opener for Michael Ray’s 2017 Think A Little Less Tour, and with several appearances alongside Kip Moore, Dan + Shay and Frankie Ballard this month alone.
Hummon is currently wrapping his first west coast tour as a special guest of Kip Moore’s, with a strong finish this Sunday at Stagecoach Festival.
The Music City native will also play Nashville’s High Watt on May 16, his first headlining show in his hometown in over a year.
