“You wanna hear a song you can drink a beer to, dance all night, cry if you want to” sings Georgia-born, Nashville-dwelling Andy Velo on “Song You Can Drink a Beer To” which is the lead single off his new album, North Georgia Pines. The song shows the honesty and feelings that not only Velo’s music brings but what country music brings to fans from all over.
Andy Velo left his hometown of Suwannee, Georgia in 2012 to officially make his move to Nashville. Early in his career, Andy started going out on the road with country artist, Corey Smith. He was able to learn first-hand from Corey what all it took, behind the scenes to become a touring artist. From there, life took him in many different directions including stunt work on the big screen in films such as The Blind Side. However, with everything, he was brought back to his true passion for music.
Velo released his self-titled EP in 2012 and his 2nd studio release EP, Blue Collar Cruise in August of 2014. It continued to provide the backdrop to Andy’s high-energy live show for the last couple years as he spent time headlining clubs and opening for several of country’s top artists including Brantley Gilbert, Granger Smith, Kip Moore, in addition to Corey Smith.
Velo is honored to be one of few artists that are Brand Ambassadors for Jim Beam Bourbon. This relationship gives fans more ways to connect and express themselves with everything from bourbon tastings hosted by Andy to free music downloads and tour sponsorship.
North Georgia Pines is a 12 song LP that features songs such as “God Made a Backroad”, “Song You Can Drink a Beer To”, and “Fields”.
“All the years spent writing, recording, and touring around the country has lead me to this point where I feel like not only have I refined what I love but I also think the record, both sonically and lyrically, is something fans of country music will connect with” says Velo.
