Honors His Heritage With “Nada es Mejor (Nothing’s Better – Spanish Version),”
Out May 20
“Nada Es Mejor” to Conclude Multi-Week Run of New Releases
Nashville, Tenn. (May 11, 2022) — Curb Records recording artist FILMORE laments the milestones he’s missed for the sake of his dreams on “Mean Something,” out today (5/11) — listen HERE. “Mean Something” is the latest in a series of successive song releases from the Wildwood, Missouri native, who has been premiering weekly offerings throughout the spring.
Pouring his heart out in three minutes, FILMORE ascribes significance to a job that often takes him away from home and the people he loves most on “Mean Something,” which he co-wrote with Will Weatherly and Michael Whitworth in the back of a bus while on tour with Lauren Alaina in early 2020. The autobiographical track mourns the pivotal moments he’s missed in exchange for a life on the road and a career he’s sacrificed everything for. Across a soaring, pleading vocal, the rising star hopes every lyric, every mile and every fan interaction will, ultimately, serve a greater purpose.
“It was a special moment for me and the writers on this,” FILMORE remembers of the genesis of the song. “We’ve been friends for a long time, and we were able to put my story into words that I also felt like related to other people. This song goes out to anybody who’s on the road working hard for their family, making sacrifices, and missing those important moments in life, knowing it’s all going to be beneficial because they’re out there working hard to support everyone back home. For me, that’s what ‘Mean Something’ was — just being on the road and missing everything in life from birthdays to graduations. So I hope this song resonates with the people who travel and miss their families.”
FILMORE kicked off his string of new music in March with upbeat, guitar-driven song “Johnny Got A Girl,” pub-worthy singalong “Leave Me A Memory,” and retro-tinged track “Girl Back.” Next, twangy pop jam “Somewhere With Beer,” driving heartbreak anthem “Falling Out Of Love,” and high-voltage rocker “If That Ain’t Country” premiered in succession. Gratitude-filled ballad “Without Tennessee,” ’80s groove “One Last Time,” and Caribbean-flavored selection “Bar In Belize” followed. In addition, the singer/songwriter has also dropped fresh collaborations in recent weeks with YA’BOYZ and You Betcha Guy.
On May 20, he’ll unveil “Nada es Mejor (Nothing’s Better – Spanish Version),” a fresh take on the original track found on his full-length debut, State I’m In. As his first Spanish recording, the song honors his Hispanic heritage and concludes his multi-week run of new releases.
Tonight, the singer/songwriter will once again step into country music’s most iconic circle for a performance at the Grand Ole Opry. In June, he’ll take the Dr Pepper Amp Stage at the 2022 CMA Fest.
Curb Records recording artist FILMORE made his major label debut in 2020 with the release of State I’m In. He has quickly amassed more than 220 million career streams. Prior to being signed, the Wildwood, Missouri native was the first independent artist to be featured on Spotify’s Hot Country cover. FILMORE’s catchy hooks and clever lyrics have since caught the attention of The New York Times, NBC’s “TODAY” show, The Bobby Bones Show and Sirius XM’s “The Highway,” among other high-profile outlets. Moreover, the rising singer/songwriter has honed his electric live show by opening for acts such as Sam Hunt, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Lauren Alaina and Pitbull; and rocked performances at Stagecoach, Watershed, CMA Fest, and Country Thunder. FILMORE is currently releasing a song per week throughout Spring 2022.
