Nashville, Tenn. (May 5, 2023) — EJ Vickers, a newcomer to the country music scene, today released his debut single, “I Love You,” dedicated to moms everywhere as Mother’s Day approaches. Much to his benefit, the 21-year-old from Cross Plains, Indiana, has country music royalty in his corner as he enters Nashville’s music scene. Teddy Gentry, co-founder of iconic country group ALABAMA, produced the song.
“This song could not have been more relatable to me, and it will always hold a special place in my heart,” explains Vickers. “I am grateful for my mother and love her dearly, and I hope everyone that hears it gets the same feeling of their own when they listen!”
Vickers may be new to Nashville but is no stranger to country music. He picked up a guitar at age three, and his dad taught him four chords. He hasn’t put down the guitar since. As a third generation musician, Vickers grew up watching his dad perform at local concerts in Indiana. Now, with his debut single and Gentry’s support, Vickers hopes to make his mark.
“Working with Teddy has been one of the most inspiring things I’ve gotten to do in life,” notes Vickers. “He is the most creative, humble, and just down-to-earth man I’ve had the pleasure of getting to meet. He has definitely made me feel like family, and I am grateful for everything he does!”
Gentry believes Vickers’ future is bright. “It’s a great song and he’s a fine singer as well as a nice guy,” he says. “He’s been a pleasure to work with, and I believe he has a successful future in music! Just give him a shot, and I think the fans and moms will love this young new talent. Go EJ! I am very proud to be working with you.”
Additionally, Vickers is set to make his debut at CMA Fest in Nashville next month when he performs on the Spotlight Stage (Friday, June 9 at 12:30 pm).
