West Virginia country singer Chase Likens releases the first single, “Rub A Little Dirt On It," from his upcoming project produced by renowned platinum-selling producer/engineer, Kevin Beamish. The uptempo single is available now across all digital platforms, impacting radio now and formally introducing the world to Nashville’s next star. Taste of Country agrees, “Likens sounds ready for country radio right now. Like today. He has that quality of a voice.”
A top 12 finalist on Season 11 of American Idol, one of Likens memorable powerhouse performances prompted judge Steven Tyler to cry. Since then he has taken a measured approach to his career, working with mega-producer Kevin Beamish, whose previous credits include icons such as Reba, Kenny Chesney, and REO Speedwagon.
“Rub A Little Dirt On It” is undeniably ready for radio. Likens believes this upbeat, attitude-filled single will let him come straight out of the gate swinging. “This song allows me to stay true to my traditional country roots while giving me the perfect vehicle to show off my melodic range that fans seem to love. This song is so authentically me - I grew up in the mountains of West Virginia riding horses, picking blackberries, and riding dirt bikes so I kind of love that my first single has Dirt in the song!
