JT Hodges’ latest single, “Goodbyes Made You Mine,” will be available at all digital download sites tomorrow, on Valentine’s Day, according to Bill Kennedy, Show Dog-Universal Music’s Vice President of Sales, Marketing & New Media.
“JT’s new single showcases his unique voice and edgy style,” Kennedy said. “The song is a natural next step after last year’s debut ‘Hunt You Down.’”
Robert K. Oermann, a respected music critic, said in his Music Row review of the single: “this has a certain ‘presence.’ JT’s not only a solid writer, but his vocal performance is up-close and personal, packed with personality and exuding confidence. The deep-twang guitar and driving production are also pluses. A star is born.”
Nate Deaton// KRTY GM/ San Jose said, “JT has what we are always looking for; the look, the sound and the ability to stand out on the radio. He did that for us with “Hunt You Down” and “Goodbyes Made You Mine” will do that for everyone.”
Hodges made it to the semi-final round in the Academy of Country Music’s New Artist of the Year category. He burst onto the country music scene in 2011 with the release of his debut single, “Hunt You Down,” and a slot on Toby Keith’s Locked & Loaded Tour Presented By Ford F-Series. “Goodbyes Made You Mine” is the second single from the artist’s soon to be released CD.
