NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 27, 2019) – Singer-songwriter Mike Ryan releases new single “Dear Country Music,” today (9/27).

Co-written by Ryan, Lynn Hutton and Jameson Rodgers, the song details how country music can be present in some of life’s most pivotal moments. “Dear Country Music,” is available across digital retailers and fans can listen to the song, here: http://mikeryanband.com/
“I started listening when I was pretty young and throughout my life country music has always been there for me. Whatever the mood, there’s a song for every occasion and I was proud to write this one with a couple good friends,” said Ryan.
Captivating millions of listeners with his songwriting and emotional vocal delivery, Ryan has surpassed an impressive 107 million cumulative career streams, and appeared on National TV. Ryan was also a featured SiriusXM Highway Find, and a Pandora and The Boot Artist to Watch.
