Today, buzzworthy Sony Music Nashville singer-songwriter Dylan Marlowe dropped two new tracks, “Grew Up Country” and “Empty Shotgun (Mr. Mechanic).” Listen here.

This morning, Dylan shared his new track “Grew Up Country” on the Kelleigh Bannen show. Penned by Dylan, Zach Abend, and Jeb Gibson, the singer said, “‘Grew Up Country’ is about growing up like I did in a small town in Georgia. It was a simple way to live but I wouldn’t change a thing.”

Written by Dylan, Seth Ennis, and Joe Fox, fan-favorite “Empty Shotgun (Mr. Mechanic)” first garnered attention during his live shows for the hooky lyrics and wordplay. “Both ‘Empty Shotgun’ and ‘Grew Up Country’ are a lot of fun to play live,” Dylan added.

Earlier this year, Dylan made waves with the release of his latest track, “Record High,” which Outsider called “arguably his best work yet,” noting that “very few country singers have seen their musical stock rise as quickly as Marlowe’s has in the last few years.” Additionally, MusicRow praised the track, calling it “Moody and haunting. The soundscape ripples with dobro, muted percussion and chimed electronics. His broken-hearted delivery aches with sincerity. Excellent work.”

Named one of Spotify’s 2023 Hot Country Artists to Watch, Dylan will be heading out on HARDY’s the mockingbird & THE CROW FALL TOUR this fall. For tour dates and tickets, visit

About Dylan Marlowe

Statesboro, Georgia native Dylan Marlowe is Nashville’s newest rising star on the country music scene, where he comes likely wearing camouflage and an audible smile, equipped with a sound that blends traditional country themes with a touch of rock. Dylan found his way to Nashville just before the start of the pandemic but made lemonade from lemons, filling his days with songwriting, networking, and finetuning his craft. After Dylan shared a performance of his countrified rewrite of the Olivia Rodrigo hit “Driver’s License” to social media, people really started paying attention. The clip immediately quadrupled his TikTok following and has racked up over a million views on YouTube to date. The enthusiasm surrounding the track prompted him to release it to streaming services, followed by his own infectious tunes like “All About It,” “I’ll Keep The Country,” and “Why’d We Break Up Again.” Now, with his first No. 1 as a songwriter for Jon Pardi’s “Last Night Lonely” under his belt, his explosive new single, “Record High,” and his opening slot on HARDY’s tour this fall, Dylan has set the scene for a monumental takeoff in 2023. Drawing from influences like Kenny Chesney, Eric Church and Cody Johnson, Dylan is carving out his own creative niche that he’s filling with music that fans will readily identify with the name Dylan Marlowe. | Instagram | Facebook | TikTok | YouTube
