Trea Landon’s ‘Loved by a Country Boy’ Video Shows Off His Roots [Exclusive Premiere]
Trea Landon makes his country music debut with his new single, "Loved by a Country Boy," and he's letting Taste of Country readers see the video before anyone else.
The 25-year-old Georgia native's debut single fires straight down the middle of contemporary country radio with a slick, well-produced sound that incorporates a mid-tempo beat with banjos and a lyric that celebrates the joys of clean country living and loving.
"Girl you ain't been loved / 'Til you've been loved by a country boy / Bet you never felt nothin' like that, naw / Girl you ain't been loved / 'Til you've been loved by a country boy / Steal your heart, won't give it back / But don't you want that love / Well come and get this love, baby / Girl you ain't been loved / 'Til you've been loved by a country boy," he sings in the chorus.
The video for "Loved by a Country Boy" features Landon and his lady engaging in a fun day of fishing, taking a stroll in nature, building a fire and playing with a dog. Click above to see the video for the song. "Loved by a Country Boy" is set to land at country radio on Aug. 26.
Landon comes by his country leanings honestly. Growing up in Daisy, Ga., the singer was "raised with a fishing pole in one hand and the keys to the pickup in the other," according to his biography. He cites the Peach Pickers — the powerhouse songwriting triumvirate of Georgia natives Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip and Dallas Davidson — as one of his main influences, and he signed with Davidson's Play It Again publishing company as a writer within four weeks of moving to Nashville in 2015.
Landon, Kyle Fishman, Davidson and Justin Wilson teamed to co-write "Loved by a Country Boy," which Nashville super-producer Scott Hendricks produced. Landon is now signed as an artist with Warner Music Nashville, and he's already toured with artists including Craig Campbell, Riley Green and Luke Combs.
