SEVIERVILLE, TN. - Sound Biscuit is excited to share “Roots,” the new single and music video from Sara Collins’ debut project as a Sound Biscuit label artist.
This is Sara’s third single release on the Sound Biscuit record label and first video release from the upcoming Roots album which is slated for a late Spring/early Summer release.
Sara Collins shares, “I can’t wait for everyone to hear my latest single Roots! The original inspiration behind the song came from when my childhood home went up for sale. My co-writers Jeffrey Roe and Georgia Miles, brought so much magic into this song. We had a great time reminiscing and talking about our upbringings during that writing session! After my Dad passed away in 2020, Roots became more personal for me than it even was before. The song perfectly captures my Louisiana southern roots and I’m thrilled to have it as the title track to my album!”
“Roots” features Sara Collins (lead vocals) along with GRAMMY nominee and winner of 13 IBMA awards Darren Nicholson (mandolin), GRAMMY nominee Stephen Burwell (fiddle), Colby Laney (acoustic guitar), Austin Crum (electric guitar), Trevor Reddick (Bass) and Felicia Mikels (harmony vocal). The song is written by Sara Collins, Georgia Miles and Jeffery Neal Roe. Recorded, engineered and mixed at the GRAMMY nominated recording studio Sound Biscuit in Sevierville, Tennessee. Produced by GRAMMY nominee Dave Maggard and mastered by GRAMMY award winner Paul Blakemore.
The new single and music video will be available to the public on all major download and streaming services Friday, March 24, 2023.
“I’m so honored to have the opportunity to sign with Sound Biscuit Productions! This project is deeply personal to me and I am thankful for Dave and Shane’s production talents and guidance. They did such a wonderful job bringing the songs to life on this upcoming album.”
