“This is the most traditional country song that I’ve released,” said Matt Jordan. “It’s a bit of a departure from my Heartland rock sound, but I loved the idea. I thought we were writing this song to pitch to someone else and when we finished it, I knew I needed to record it. It was special. The sentiment of the song is something I can think many people can relate to… about how it feels after a breakup when you’re left with only the thrill of the gamble.” 

The single showcases the rising star’s gritty vocals and country/rock influences, drawing comparisons to the likes of artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Eric Church, while showcasing his artistry as a songwriter. With his unique Heartland Rock meets Country sound, Matt Jordan is carving out his own path in today’s music scene.
