Nashville, Tenn. – Pinecastle Records is excited to announce the signing of award-winning recording artist Troy Engle. To celebrate the momentous occasion, the critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter is also releasing the brand new single, “Back Home.” Available today, it’s the first taste of new music coming later this year from the Pennsylvania based instrumentalist. Fans can download and/or stream the new single HERE.
“I wrote ‘Back Home’ with my buddy Bill Whyte. I had written the first few lines, ‘I belong in those mountains, Lord knows I go back if I could’ and was thinking about folks, like my dad, who left the mountains, hollers, and their families behind, to try and make a better life for themselves,” explains Troy Engle. “There’s a longing in them to go back home, but there was no way for them to make a living there. This also resonated with Bill, who grew up on a farm in Missouri, and I think a lot of us can relate as well, no matter where home is. We still want to go back in time and smell mama’s cooking in the kitchen and go fishing with daddy one more time.
As mentioned, “Back Home” was co-written by Engle alongside Bill Whyte, with the pair perfectly capturing the message of returning to your roots. As a true display of his world-class musicianship, the new single features Engle tackling all aspects of the recording process by impressively performing acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, upright bass, drums, lead and harmony vocals. Listeners can also hear the inspiration gathered over the years while the singer has shared the stage with an array of different fan-favorites like Patty Loveless, The Isaacs, Larry Sparks, Buddy Jewell, Leon Russell and more. His compositions have also been featured on top TV shows like The Voice, American Pickers, Duck Dynasty, and Pawn Stars.
With spring officially in the air, Troy is looking forward to the release of his next full-length project, also titled Back Home. Set for release at a later date, fans can expect to hear new singles throughout the year, with the full album release to be announced at a later date while he’s still finishing up production on the record.
