Taxi Music Forward - Hip-Hop-Flavored Country

..Which means: “Hey cool track, I'm going to pass this on. It may be usable to the TV/Film/Publishing pro that will hear it next."

This is the second forward for myself and co-writer, Mary Lyn Bates. (Our first forward was "Stupid Little Heart")

I don't consider my production skills in this genre are super strong, so I just worked up what I call a simple demo with as much of that "country swagger" as I could muster. I imagine a genuine country dude could really make use of this on their next project [wink, wink].


CHART-WORTHY HIP-HOP-Flavored COUNTRY SONGS (Hick-Hop) with Male Vocals are needed by a well-known Music Row-based Publisher for a CMA-nominated act that’s looking for his next single! 

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would appeal to the fans of acts and Songs like: 

"Back to Them Backroad" by Colt Ford ft. Jimmie Allen 

"Thats All We Know" by Jawga Boyz 

"Old Town Road " by Lil Nas X 

Please submit contemporary-sounding Country Songs that have a Rap/Hip-Hop style, with authentic Country instrumentation and Hip-Hop beats. Be sure to have solid vocal deliveries, original storylines with fresh lyrical perspectives, and super-catchy, memorable choruses! 

TAXI Tip: Your submissions can be well-crafted, stripped-down demos or fuller productions, as long as what you send in is competitive with what they’ll get from writers on the Row. 

The specific deal points will be negotiated on a Song-by-Song basis directly with the Publisher. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, May 10th, 2020.  TAXI # S200510HC
