NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Five-time Golden Guitar nominee Jayne Denham releases her new single “Moonshine,” featuring American singer, rapper, and songwriter Colt Ford. As one of Australia’s most admired and sought-after country western rock performers, Jayne brings listeners a storytelling anthem that takes you on a journey of love, loss, fight, and glory. Australia’s leading country artist Jayne Denham releases “Moonshine” as her new album’s title track and debut single.
Written by Colin Elmore, Cameron Jaymes, and Melissa Pierce, and produced by Grammy-nominated songwriters and producers Brian Bunn and Brian White, “Moonshine” is a song with danceable melodies, wrapped in a love story, that will entice audiences globally. Hailing from down under, Jayne says, “When I first heard “Moonshine,” I knew it was the perfect fit for me, and I could immediately hear exactly how I wanted to sing it. Colt Ford is the perfect addition for the direction of the song, and to have him featured on it was the piece of the puzzle that fit so seamlessly.”
The creative lyricism accompanied by Jayne’s powerhouse vocals and Colt Ford’s lyrical additions, ‘Girl when I give you this kiss, like moonshine hitting your lips’ makes this single a standout track with undeniable talent interwoven between an Aussie and American singer.
Colt Ford says, “Being featured on Jayne’s new song ‘Moonshine’ is a true honor as well as bringing more of my music to the Australian country scene. Country roots run deep, and the spirit of the countryside can be found in every corner of the world, where hardworking and down-to-earth people come together to create community.” The lyrics are a true representation of said talent, with classic country roots intermixed into the rendition and liquor theme of the record.
“I am not the type of artist to write many love songs, but when I heard “Moonshine,” I knew if I was to write a love song, this was it,” adds Jayne. Jayne continues to expand her artistic repertoire with this epic single collaboration involving overseas counterparts that marks one of the biggest milestones in her career.
To accompany the single release of “Moonshine,” Jayne has partnered with Franklin County Distillery, located in the mountains of Virginia, known as the “Moonshine Capital of the World,” to release her own line of two different flavored moonshines, Ridge Runner Pear and Orchard Peach.
Jayne’s 5th album, Wanted, came out of the gate firing all the bullets, reaching No. 1 on the Aria Australian Country Album chart and No. 2 on the Air Australian Indie chart after Jimmy Barns. The album also landed Jayne 2x Golden Guitar Awards for Female Artist of the Year, and Contemporary Album of the Year. Wanted led Jayne to define the foundation and essence of her brand, which electrifies costume attire and custom-made leather accessories by Buffalo Girl designer Terry Cronin. Denham has scored four No. 1 smash hits in Australia, six Top 10 songs in the National Country Charts, 12 Top 30 videos, and six Country Music Channel (CMC) nominations.
