Nashville, TN – Breakout pop-country duo SixForty1 will release their newest single “Forget Those Heels” this Friday, July 3. “This song was a no brainer when considering songs for our EP. It taps into the intimate sides of our lives that we wanted to share with our fans,” says SixForty1. The new song follows the release of “Somebody’s Gonna
” earlier this year as well as 2019’s “Next Kiss
,” “Plane Crazy
” and the double A-Side single release of “Show You Around
” and “I Get That
SixForty1 have received nearly 7 million streams and have been featured on major Spotify playlists like “Breakout Country,” “New Boots,” “Next from Nashville,” “Wild Country,” and “Young Music City” – all this and the band has yet to release their debut full-length album. American Songwriter points out: “While they’ve yet to release a debut record, the singles and two EPs they’ve released thus far have demonstrated the duo’s innate ability to write catchy, pop-country tunes.”
SixForty1 (Brooks Hoffman and Austin Gee) are bringing people together in a big way. The duo originally formed when the two met at Murray State, in Kentucky. Since then, the goal of the band was to bring people together, through their music, as does highway 641, the band’s namesake.
Since making the move to Nashville in 2018, they have managed to create quite a buzz. The two have unique and inimitable songwriting chemistry and a knack for catchy and clever musical phrasing.
The group has found early success and fandom, attracting Aaron Tannenbaum, CAA booking agent powerhouse who is also responsible for Luke Combs, Martina McBride, Brantley Gilbert, and Brett Young. The group also turned the head of manager Aaron Keiser at Morris Higham Management; a Nashville based management company representing artists Brandon Lay, Brantley Gilbert, Carly Pearce, Kenny Chesney, Michael Ray, and Old Dominion. Since Tannenbaum and Keiser came on board, SixForty1 has toured with several acts including Brantley Gilbert, Michael Ray, Walker Hayes, and Muscadine Bloodline, while also making appearances at Brantley Gilbert’s first and second annual Kick It In The Ship cruise.
