Country artist Will Day is proud to announce the release of a new track entitled ‘Simple Then’, featuring fellow powerhouse country artist Brooke Schubert. ‘Simple Then’ is a song of love and heartbreak. It tells the story of a couple who fell in love at a young age but as time goes by, they drift apart. Early in their relationship, there were no complications, life was simple, fun and carefree. The boy breaks the girl’s heart, and they soon realise that there is no fairy-tale ending.

“When Jared (my producer) and I wrote ‘Simple Then’ we knew straight away that we wanted it to be a male/female duet, it was just about finding the right fit. In my opinion, Brooke has one of the best voices in the country, so we were stoked when she agreed to come on board. It was wonderful working with such a professional. It’s special track and Jared, Brooke and I are really happy with how it’s turned out.”

This song comes hot on the tail of previous supercharged single ‘Countrified’ which enjoyed solid airplay on Australian country radio when it was released in April, reaching #12 on the KIX Country Hottest 20 Charts and remaining in those charts for 5 consecutive weeks. The song was added to full rotation on iHeartCountry Australia and the music clip was spun on CMT Australia. Gigs followed, with Will performing at Brisbane’s Town and Country Music Festival and up in Rockhampton to a full capacity crowd for Round Up at CMC Rocks to rave reviews.

‘Simple Then’ is the third single from Will’s debut album ‘Countrified’. Released 23rd July, the album includes a perfect combination of up-tempo, high energy country rock tracks, in which Will is so well known for, as well as emotive and heartfelt ballads such as ‘Rare Piece of Earth’, a track written about Day’s connection to his hometown of Goondiwindi. The album includes some impressive co-writes with the likes of fellow country artists, Troy Kemp, Col Finley, Jetty Road, Hayley Jensen and Jade Holland and guest vocalists such as Col Finley and Troy Kemp on the ‘in your face country rock’ track ‘Bro’s’.

‘I feel like this album has been a long time coming for me but I’m so excited to have it finally released. I’m really proud of what I’ve managed to achieve with the songs and the sound. I was lucky enough to collaborate with so many co-writers and guest vocalists on the album. Big thanks to my producer Jared Adlam who really helped bring all the tracks to life’

This release is in the lead up to a national tour, which will reach every state in the country and will include a performance at major Country Music Festival, Savannah in the Round at Mareeba, QLD, in October alongside such artists as Lee Kernaghan, Troy Cassar-Daly, The Wolfe Brothers, Brad Cox, Casey Barnes, Southbound and many more. With Will’s immense passion of touring means that he is excited to bring his live show to Australian audiences and while a few shows have been postponed due to covid lockdowns in some states, Will is eager to revisit those areas later in the year.

With a strong touring ethic, Will is a constant crowd favourite, delivering a high energy show. He has opened for the likes of Morgan Evans, Shannon Noll, Icehouse, Diesel, The Whitlams, Hoodoo Gurus, The Baby Animals, The Black Sorrows, Col Finley and The Viper Creek Band while also appearing at some of Australia’s most iconic country music festivals, including Tamworth Country Music Festival, Groundwater Country Music Festival and Gympie Music Muster.

In other news, Will has entered into a long-term partnership with premier clothing and accessories brand Ringers Western who have been announced as Will’s official wardrobe sponsor.
