The Red Clay Strays Release Powerful New Single ‘Devil In My Ear’, Tackling Mental Health

Grammy-Winning Producer Dave Cobb Teams Up with The Red Clay Strays for Upcoming Album...

The Red Clay Strays have released the brand new song Devil In My Ear. Written by guitarist Drew Nix, ‘Devil In My Ear’ explores the profound effects of depression, anxiety and self-doubt. Watch the video here.
 
Reflecting on the song, Nix shares, “‘Devil in My Ear’ is a song that came to me during a time when I was trying to figure out why somebody who was dear to me, and many others, would take their own life. Somebody who, even with superb talent, a loving family, and good friends thought their life either wasn’t worth living anymore or they were experiencing a pain so severe internally that they could no longer live with it. This song is dedicated to the people who have had these thoughts and moments where they feel like their life doesn’t matter enough to stick around. Please stick around. Somebody loves you. Those thoughts are lies and things will get better. God bless.”
 
‘Devil In My Ear’ is the second song unveiled from The Red Clay Strays’ highly anticipated new album, Made By These Moments, which will be released July 26th on RCA Records (pre-order/pre-save here).
 
In celebration of the new music, the band made their late-night television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last month, where they performed new single, ‘Wanna Be Loved’. Watch the performance HERE. Of the song, Whiskey Riff declares, “The traditional Southern rock sound perfectly complements the lyrics to the single, instantly striking a chord with listeners,” while Live For Live Music praises, “Soaring Skynyrd slide guitar melds with Coleman’s rockabilly falsetto, all cloaked in hat-in-hand Southern humility and a lyrical honesty inherent to roots music.”

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell) and recorded at Cobb’s Georgia Mae studio in Savannah, Made By These Moments is filled with the band’s signature genre-blending sound, as they meld electric rock and roll with southern soul. Across these eleven tracks, The Red Clay Strays explore fundamental elements of the human condition, reflecting on faith, love and redemption.
 
Of the project, lead singer Brandon Coleman shares, “Made By These Moments shines a light on overcoming the battles we face in life like loneliness, depression, and hopelessness. We hope you listen and recognize that our pain has a purpose.”
 
One of music’s fastest rising bands, The Red Clay Strays are Brandon Coleman (lead vocals, guitar), Drew Nix (electric guitar, vocals, harmonica), Zach Rishel (electric guitar), Andrew Bishop (bass) and John Hall (drums). Formed in Alabama in 2016, the group are currently in the midst of a breakout year, as they are nominated Emerging Act of the Year at the 2024 Americana Music Awards and continue to achieve massive success with their single, ‘Wondering Why’.
 
With over 100 million streams to date, the track spent a week at No.1 on Spotify’s Viral 50 USA Playlist and six consecutive weeks at No.1 on the Americana Singles chart. The song has become a staple of US radio and features on multiple charts in the USA – No.7 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart, No.16 on the Billboard AAA chart and No.18 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and continues to gain support across genres, including charting on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100.


 
‘Wondering Why’ is from the band’s album, Moment Of Truth, of which Billboard praised, “Lead singer Coleman’s gruff, impassioned vocal shines here as always, bolstered by the group’s exemplary musicianship,” while Rolling Stone declared, “the musical manifestation of the push and pull between salvation and redemption…Delta blues, gritty honky-tonk, and Sun Records rockabilly, shot through with a palpable darkness.” Since the release, The Red Clay Strays have also made their Grand Ole Opry debut and toured extensively across the country including shows with The Rolling Stones, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Elle King and Old Crow Medicine Show.
 
They are selling out and upgrading their headline shows on both sides of the Atlantic, after requiring upgrades to UK venues in just a matter of days of going on sale, The Red Clay Strays will embark on their debut headline tour of the UK & Ireland in August, performing four dates including London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on August 23rd.
