Denny Strickland’s love for West Coast culture uniquely blends with his Arkansas country roots to create music that feels like a throwback and an examination of modern romantic expression.
On the road from the age of five years old showing horses, Strickland taught himself to play the guitar and write songs after studying at Arkansas State University. With the same veracity that made him a champion rider, he soon began to play regional gigs and caught the eye of The Statler Brothers’ longtime manager (and Bass player for Johnny Cash), Marshall Grant. Grant’s passing in 2011 set the wheels in motion for Strickland’s move to Nashville, reigniting his music career on the MusicRowCountryBreakout Chart with the debut hits “Swerve On” followed by "How Far You Wanna Go" and the club anthem " Get A Grip". Denny's most recent hit “We Don’t Sleep,” features a video which enjoyed 3 weeks at #1 on the CMT Music 12 Pack Countdown. Strickland co-produced his debut album, California Dreamin with producer Sean Giovanni, which was released in August 2017 with Red Star Label Group. Strickland has writing credits on six of the 10 tracks on the project, look for his next single in 2018.
