"Fool Speed" – the new single by country/southern-rock band County Wide – features a catchy hook that pairs with a chorus that feels like home, making it a strong contender for the country sing-along of the summer. The song perfectly captures the feeling of working hard all week to live the weekends to the fullest.

“I knew this song could be something good because most people are like me and they didn't take their first job or life very seriously until it smacked them in the face.” Aron Bunch, lead singer and rhythm guitarist says. Drummer Travis Clem adds “First job is always overrated, it's much better to hang out with the boys except that doesn't always pay the bills.”

County Wide are known for providing a sound that reminisces elements of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Blackberry Smoke, while also bringing an original creative energy that many fans don’t seem to find from new bands these days.

Discussing the origins of the song, lead guitarist Steven Standifer exclaims ‘Fool Speed just had a great drive to it and I tried to incorporate that into the guitar parts to keep the song moving. The guys immediately loved the riff that I was able to come up with.’ All five members of the band contribute to make this song sound as full as it possibly can and that shows when they play live. Known for exhilarating live shows that keep the audience on their toes, “Fool Speed” is sure to be a new setlist highlight for the country rockers.

"Fool Speed" is out everywhere! Take a listen!

The Kentucky-based band just announced their next track, "Good Advice," which will release on September 30. Both "Fool Speed" and "Good Advice" release ahead of an impending, highly-anticipated album release.
