“Gonna Be You (RUSLAN Remix)” Debuts Today 2/21/20
Curb Records duo American Young releases “Gonna Be You (RUSLAN Remix)” to all digital service providers today. Kristy Osmunson and Jon Stone give the popular song—originally released last spring—a refresh with this exclusive remix version available now.
Jon harnesses lead vocals on the first verse of the wistful track as he reflects on the demise of young love, wondering if he’ll ever get a second chance. As if echoing his thoughts, Kristy leads with a female perspective on the second verse as she finds the courage to rewrite the past. Their signature harmonies intertwine when the song finds its resolve in a relationship that was meant to be.
“I think ‘Gonna Be You’ is a promise,” Jon says of the song, “almost like, ‘I’m out here chasing my meaning in life, and there’s no one I’m ready to be with; but when I am, it’s gonna be you.’”
For Kristy the song serves as a compass. “Life takes us down so many winding roads in pursuit of our dreams,” she observes. “The farther away from home we get, the closer to home we are. Home is where my love is.”
Kicking off the new decade with new music, last month American Young released “Some Girl.” The fresh track hit streaming platforms in conjunction with the duo’s appearance on the Season 3 premiere of E!’s hit reality series, “Very Cavallari,” on which Stone has a recurring role.
American Young capped 2019 with their first ever British Country Music Association (BCMA) Award, after being named “International Touring Artist of the Year.” The accolade marks the third consecutive nomination for the duo and American Young’s first BCMA win. The globe-trotting duo already has dates confirmed for 2020 in the U.K., Germany, Amsterdam, Mexico, Canada and more. They recently returned from Island Time Music Fest in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, where festival proceeds benefit the island’s Little Yellow Schoolhouse and its service to local, special needs children.
