Travis Linville Record Release Pay Per View Streaming Show
Acclaimed singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Travis Linville will release his highly anticipated new album, I’m Still Here, on May 21 via Tulsa's Black Mesa Records. Produced by fellow Oklahoman JD McPherson, I’m Still Here is full of, in McPherson’s words, the “fantastic songs and consummate musicianship” Linville is known for, but the contributions from his collaborators shine throughout. Linville recently revealed the result of one such contribution: the album’s title track, a lament on the chasm between perception and reality, which was penned in a single writing session with power songwriter, and one-fourth of acclaimed supergroup The Highwomen, Natalie Hemby (Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Lady Gaga). Her talent as a writer pulled Linville’s song idea in a decidedly more pop-inflected direction, touching on Hemby’s gift for writing exactly what someone else means to say. The song gained Best Of The Week accolades from Billboard Magazine and Rolling Stone Country.
Hailed as “one of the most sought-after songwriters and collaborators in the Sooner State and beyond” (Wide Open Country), Linville’s session and touring work include credits with artists ranging from fellow Oklahomans Samantha Crain and John Moreland to longtime collaborator Hayes Carll and indie rock stalwart Berwanger (feat. members of the Anniversary). In recent years, he’s performed his own music as hand-selected support for Carll and Moreland, as well as Parker Millsap, Todd Snider’s Hard Working Americans, and even country legend Marty Stuart. These collaborations and his recorded catalog, including 2017’s Up Ahead LP, have built for Linville a dedicated group of fans in the music world who’ve spent decades enamored of his nonchalant technical skill, artistry, and taste.
Among those fans is Broken Arrow, Oklahoma native JD McPherson, who recollects, “Growing up in Oklahoma, Travis was known everywhere as one of the most respected musicians and performers from a very large pool of talent.
In 2018, Linville found himself with a ohandful of songs approaching studio readiness and bored of his typical “record, release, repeat” grind without much outside influence. Meanwhile, McPherson was searching for the right project to flex his producing muscles. A few conversations later, and a match made in Oklahoma, but brought to life in Tennessee, was born.
