Triple Tigers recording artists GONE WEST will release their first single “What Could’ve Been” today, as announced in People (HERE). GONE WEST is 2X Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat, Grammy-nominated songwriter Jason Reeves, 4x Hawaiian Music Award winner Justin Kawika Young and Grammy, ACM and CMT nominee Nelly Joy. GONE WEST produced and wrote the track with Jamie Kenney. It’s a huge week for the foursome who also play CMA Fest for the first time, appearing at Chevy Riverfront Stage on Sunday, June 9.
The four have collaborated musically for fourteen years, but it was while on a personal break from one of the most musical pop breakthroughs of the last several years, Caillat and her fiancée Young decided to head to Nashville where Caillat’s frequent co-writer Reeves was living with his wife Nelly Joy.
Suddenly a creative incubator for four friends turned into GONE WEST, a fresh harmony, breezy melody group whose myriad influences landed somewhere between Laurel Canyon, Texas roadhouses, Appalachia’s harmony and the plains of the Midwest. In a short time, they were invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and signed to Triple Tigers. For Caillat, who’d already collaborated with Taylor Swift and Brad Paisley, as well as CMA Song of the Year winner Liz Rose, it felt like a homecoming.
Triple Tigers Records will release “What Could’ve Been” to country radio next month on July 15.
