2022 Toyota Star Maker winner Max Jackson has officially signed with ABC Music after recently teaming up with Stephen White Management. Today, she continues the journey, announcing a new single, Little More Country – her first new single with ABC Music.
Little More Country was produced by Rod McCormack and co-written by Jackson, Nolan Wynne and Gavin Carfoot. She commented about the single in a press release, due for release on Friday, 20 October, “Little More Country is all about what it means to be country. It’s not the car you drive or the clothes you wear; it’s so much more than that.
“It’s about values and, I guess, my favourite traits of country people, the same traits I always aim to embody. This one goes out to the honest, kind, hard-working, back-road driving, big-sky-loving, stop-to-say-hello country music fans.”
Jackson continued, “The anthemic energy of the song is something I really love. I’ve always felt like the kick drum sounds like cowboy boots stomping on an old hardwood floor, and it makes me so excited to know that soon we will be playing it live, bringing it to country music fans who share these same values and country frame of mind.”
On signing with ABC Music, Jackson added, “I’m really proud to also have this new music coming from not just myself but an incredible team. Recently, I announced my signing with Stephen White Management. Now, along with Steve and Brogan, we are so proud to announce that we have also joined forces with ABC Music. This really completes a dream come true team for me, and I cannot wait for this next bunch of music I’ve been working on, kicking off here with Little More Country.”
Head of Music at ABC Music Natalie Waller said, “Having met with and seen Max Jackson perform, her talent and presence is undeniable. We are excited for this next chapter with her.”
