'Might As Well Be Me' is set for release on August 5
The project is crafted for the stage with all of Denning's hard-charging energy and mischief-making signatures intact, but it also captures an artist maturing. It is available to pre-order now here.
Denning explains, "Last year and my most recent EP were all about thankfulness and being glad to have any live shows at all. This time a lot of that is behind us, and it's like 'Alright, let's get to work.' Overall, I wanted this EP to feel like a setlist. And I wanted it to be a no skipper."
Along with the album announcement, he has dropped a new track from the upcoming release, Buy A Girl A Drink. Co-written by Denning with Jeremy Stover, Paul DiGiovanni, and Chase McGill the candlelit confession features Denning's most tender lyricism to date.
He says, “Buy A Girl A Drink is just a story of how much can come out of one simple little thing of buying a girl a drink. It’s pretty inspired by how me and (fiancé) Madison first met, and just how far we’ve come and how much we’ve grown in our relationship from just buying a tequila soda for her to now we’re getting married. It’s one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written.”

Might As Well Be Me also includes the previously released track She’s On It, a thoughtful track that contemplates a mistake that can’t be fixed. On Don’t Give a Truck, Denning’s playful personality doesn’t just lead the party, it helps drop some heartfelt wisdom with a pure country turn of phrase. With the nostalgia-tinged River Named Mississippi, Denning is in all new territory. Red Round Here, is a rollicking roadhouse banger and the serene If You Need Anything Down Here finds Denning pledging undying support to a fallen friend.
A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, the singer-songwriter celebrated his first #1 and recently certified platinum single, After A Few. Accelerating his ascend from a chart-topping single, the song was taken from his debut EP Beer’s Better Cold that debuted in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart.
Denning first made waves with the release of his Top 40 debut single David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs. He previously headlined his own Heartbeat Of A Small Town Tour, toured with Cole Swindell, Dustin Lynch, Alan Jackson, Riley Green and is currently out on the road this summer with Dierks Bentley and Ashley McBryde, and will join Jake Owen later this year.
With over 500 million streams worldwide, Denning has been spotlighted for his head-turning sound and was previously selected as one of CRS New Faces, an Opry NextStage recipient and a CMA KixStart Artist, as he makes his mark within the industry.
