Country Powerhouse Tori Martin Is Ready To Have "FUN" With Release Of New Single
Song Encourages Listeners to Slow Down, Take Time to Enjoy the Moment and Make Time for Loved Ones
Powerhouse Country singer-songwriter Tori Martin is ringing in the summer with her brand new single “Fun.” The song could not be more timely as stay-at-home orders are lifted and states begin to re-open. "Fun" is the second single off of Martin's highly-anticipated album Lucky to be released this summer. The track is currently available through all streaming platforms and digital retailers and is already creating a buzz following its international release day premieres on Radio Sobro NuMu FRIDAY, an all-streaming radio platform that allows listeners to enjoy Nashville’s songwriters worldwide, as well as during her virtual release party on SCENES, a large media outlet known for transporting followers into the world of entertainment from the music, film & television, comedy, fashion & beauty scenes into worlds they've never been before. Listen here.
The catchy uptempo tune which was co-written with award-winning songwriters, Kirsti Manna (Blake Shelton's "Austin"), Bill DiLuigi and produced by Bill Warner, is meant to serve as a reminder that we need to take control of our time, focus on what's important and make every moment count. Martin commented, "Fun" was inspired by the merry-go-round￼ we all ride called life! I wrote this upbeat summer song with two powerhouse writers, Kirsti Manna and Bill DiLuigi. Our world today is so fast-paced that we rarely take time to enjoy the moment or make time for our loved ones. This song was written prior to quarantine life. I think, now more than ever, we have come to realize those everyday moments we may have taken for granted. Everyone has been forced to slow down and focus on what is really important. After all, if life is short and tomorrow isn’t promised...we should be having fun!
Martin added, "In light of our current situation, it is also important to be responsible and follow proper safety precautions, but as things start returning to the new normal, it is the perfect time to reconnect with friends and family that we have missed seeing for far too long and get back to doing those things we enjoy and making memories.
