COUNTRY ARTIST ALLISON CIPRIS RELEASES NOSTALGIC NEW SINGLE "SUNRISE DRIVE"
Nashville, TN (September 16, 2022) - Country-Rock singer/songwriter Allison Ciprisrecently released her newest single "Sunrise Drive." You can listen to it HERE!
With picturesque lyrics like shifting gears, his hand on mine, windows down, my hair was flyin', thought I saw forever in his eyes, "Sunrise Drive" shows Cipris’ softer side as a songwriter and takes you for a journey on a moonlit open road, conjuring up memories of summer romance.
“Sunrise Drive is a special song for me," Cipris explains. "When Al Lama and I wrote this song, we immediately had a good feeling about it. I have always loved performing this song and have held on to it for a while, waiting for the right time to release it. My favorite kind of songwriting comes from real life situations and experiences. A lot of my writing comes from personal experience, but there are so many pieces of everyone I know or have come in contact with in the stories I tell with my music. I try to be real and relatable in my writing, so that anyone who listens to my music will be able to connect in some way.”
