Michael Hall releases country single ‘My Country Family’

The veteran singer and songwriter of country music known as Michael Hall has released his country music single, “My Country Family.” The track has been proudly published as an American independent release entirely without support from the corporate music industry. Raw, natural and full of the warm, classic overtones of traditional country-western music, “My Country Family” is a ballad of the American heartland that people all over the world can appreciate.

Michael Hall has cited as main artistic influences some of the very best-loved heroes of country music. Given in his own order, these include Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Elvis Presley, and “many more.” His sound incorporates several key attributes of these, perhaps most importantly including Hall’s rich and bold singing timbre, the strength of which carries the song and would sound powerful and moving even if heard unaccompanied.

Hall’s singing is backed by his own accomplished guitar playing, some beautiful slide, a strong bass line, elegant piano, and a little percussion for good measure, and these elements round out “My Country Family” for some of the best country music to be published in decades. Fans of Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, and other such classic players from before the country genre became watered-down by rock-‘n’-roll crossover projects are sure to be well pleased with this offering late in 2014 from Michael Hall.

It bears noting, also, that the themes expressed in “My Country Family” are perfectly suited to the holiday season, just weeks away from the single’s official release date. Speaking of his themes in the track, Hall writes simply that they are centered around “Gratitude and blessings.”

Michael Hall was born and raised in the country in South Carolina. He has worked in farming, ranching, automotive work and music. He has been a trucker, bull rider, drag racer, paint-and-body man, barn builder and a cowboy.

“But with all that experience,” he writes, “singing and songwriting have always been my passion.”

Hall has played all over the American Southeast in honky-tonks, nightclubs and churches, at festivals, private parties, and weddings.

“I’ve shared the stage with some of the greats,” Hall says, “and I’m looking forward to presenting my music in a meaningful and strong way.”

“My Country Family” by Michael Hall is available online worldwide.
