I feel as though there's never been a time where there's been more country music talent than right now. Part of it is because the genre is so all-encompassing, with a ton of different sounds and styles, and the other part is because it is so readily available on so many platforms. That being said, I believe the cream still always rises to the top, and right now the cream happens to be a guy originally from Sheridan, Wyoming, Ian Munsick.
Many people in the Rocky Mountain region have already known and followed Ian for a few years now, but he is about to blowup into a huge national star!
Becoming the next Luke Combs/Morgan Wallen-type star isn't an overnight process, but the steps it takes are well in motion for Ian. Start with great music... Since the 2017 release of his self-titled EP he's won iHeartRadio’s Rocky Mountain Country Music Awards Song of the Year for “Horses Are Faster,” and became the only artist who simultaneously qualified two tracks as finalists in the NSAI/CMT songwriting competition. Recent singles, such as his latest "Long Haul," are enjoying huge streaming and social media numbers.
One of the hardest steps in this path to superstardom I keep describing is getting a major record deal... Ian got that box checked this year also signing with Warner Music Nashville. They'll make sure radio gets ahold of the music, and if I were a betting man, I'd say we will look back on this article someday and say "the rest is history."
Watch out country music world, Ian Munsick is coming to show you what the west is all about!
