This week, we announced that rising artist Joey Hendricks signed a recording deal with Sony Music Nashville. his debut single “Yours or Mine”
is out today and we were able to catch up with him to get the scoop. Here are 5 things you need to know about Joey.
1. “Yours or Mine” was co-written with Michael Whitworth and Daniel Ross. Ross produced the track.
2. Joey moved to town thinking he was going to be a songwriter. His publisher encouraged him down the artist path.
3. When asked about when he knew he wanted to be a songwriter, Hendricks said “I knew as soon as I learned a few chords on guitar my sophomore year of high school. My grades went to shit and all I cared about was music from that point on… sorry mom and dad haha.”
4. Joey says the song he wish he wrote is “Stop This Train” by John Mayer. “I’m a sucker for life songs and songs about the passing of time. That one is written perfectly in my opinion.”
5. Fans should be on the lookout for more music! “These are strange times in the middle of a pandemic, but I’ll still be putting music out and hopefully will be able to play them live for people at some point.”
