“Country music’s newest badass” (People), Kolby Cooper is setting the summer ablaze, igniting his latest anthem “Kill Me” with flaming instrumentals, his fierce vocal and his signature, rebel-fueled chaos. Available today via BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records in partnership with Combustion Music, the blazing up-tempo country-rocker – written by Cooper, Michael Whitworth and producer Andrew Baylis – rages with fervent lyrics, capturing a mesmerizing desire between two people. Listen to “Kill Me” HERE.
Due to wild fan response at his packed-out shows, the heart-pounding new song follows his Grand Ole Opry debut and the release of his acclaimed label-debut album, Boy From Anderson County To The Moon, that Whiskey Riff and Raised Rowdy declared as one of the top albums of 2022. Ready to make a statement, “Kill Me” also marks the country outlier’s first taste of new music this year, solidifying his sound shift into country rocker territory.
“‘Kill Me’ is a song about addiction – love, drugs, or life in general, says Cooper. “Everyone is out here chasing a cheap thrill and that’s what this song is about. The struggle to keep it all balanced.”
Continuing his strenuous packed-out tour schedule throughout 2023, Kolby Cooper has “proven that he has everything it takes to hang with the big dawgs in country music” (Whiskey Riff).
