MusicRowPics: Denny Strickland
Jessica Nicholson • April 23, 2015 •
Jonesboro, Ark., native Denny Strickland was immersed in various types of music, from classic rock to traditional country, while growing up on his family’s farm. A performer from an early age, this self-taught guitarist and singer is also a touring veteran, having criss-crossed the nation on the horse show circuit as an American Quarter Horse champion. The experience made the transition to pursue a career in country music a natural one for Strickland.
Strickland, along with guitarist Andrew Timothy and cajon player Jeremy Warren, showcased his new music with a brief set at MusicRow’s Nashville office.
He began with current single, “Swerve On,” an up-tempo, barroom country thumper that finds the singer ramping up the confidence to talk to a lady who has caught his interest. Switching gears, Strickland showcased his musical versatility, commanding a cover of Staind’s “It’s Been Awhile” with equal ease.
He closed with the single-worthy tune “My Kind of Crowd.”
Strickland, who currently resides just outside of Nashville, has been visiting numerous stations during his recent radio tour. “We are just taking it one day at a time, and really enjoying getting the music out there to country radio, and ultimately to the fans.”
