Multi-platinum hit-making trio Cheat Codes, popularly known for their smash single No Promises' (featuring Demi Lovato), are diving into the country music scene with their debut country music album, One Night in Nashville - Presented by the Cheat Codes.

This album is an entirely new endeavour for the genre bending trio who have put out records in electronic dance, pop, and alt rock genres. 

Cheat Codes originally turned to Little Big Town to add their vocals on a song while making their last album, Hellraiser PT 3.

They said, “We had set out to make a dance song and the vocals were so right it just made sense. We didn't know if anyone would want to do this with electronic artists, but we found that they were just as keen to work with us as we were to work with them. That comfort set the tone for the type of album we wanted to make and who we wanted to work with moving forward.”

Influenced earlier in their lives by country music to some degree, it wasn't until the trio went to Nashville where it all started to come together. 

They added, “Going to the coolest city ever after us making one song turned into us wanting to make an entire album. We knew it was a different world musically from the one we lived in, but we knew we wanted to be a part of it.”

Shortly after, the guys did a song with Lee Brice and Lindsay Ell, which dropped in October 2021.

“We felt so comforted and welcomed by them and their audience our collaboration was just so natural. We were invited to play with them at the 2022 Stagecoach Festival and being embraced by not only them, but their fans was such a special feeling we knew we had to do more.”

The project is due out early next year, and the single, I Remember, with multi-platinum recording artist, Russell Dickerson will be released on Friday, August 26.

Cheat Codes said, “Working with Russell Dickerson was like that first sip of an ice-cold beer as the suns going down. Jesse Frasure and Russell set the stage perfectly, the second they sent over the chorus we fell in love and knew exactly what we needed to bring this to life.”

Dickerson added, “Jesse Frasure sent me this song and as soon as I heard the chorus, I was in. I got together with the writers to finish it and it came together perfectly. Then enter Cheat Codes and these dudes took it to the moon.”

Collaborations with Mackenzie Porter, Maddie & Tae, Dolly Parton, Lady A, Jimmie Allen, Brett Young, Little Big Town and Mitchell Tenpenny will also feature on the new album.
