Country singer-songwriter Levi Hummon has put in his time. And now, it’s his time.
Hummon’s readiness has been a decade in the making, and you can hear it in his break-out hit “Paying for It,” the instantly infectious collaboration with Walker Hayes, and in his brand new song “Bottled Up.” Both tunes offer bona fide proof that working on his songwriting, playing and performing for the past ten years is paying off and giving fans a chance to hear Hummon at his best.
While Hummon spent his 20s practicing his art, his immersion into country music started much, much earlier: the day he was born. His father Marcus Hummon is one of Nashville’s most prolific Grammy-winning songwriters, having penned The Chicks’ “Cowboy Take Me Away,” Rascal Flatts’ “Bless the Broken Road,” Tim McGraw’s “One of These Days,” Sara Evans’ “Born to Fly” and hundreds more. So growing up with his dad composing at the piano meant that the soundtrack for Levi’s childhood was almost always country music.
