On Feb. 10, it was announced that country music singer Scott Coner is back in the music industry after a twenty year departure. His debut EP Feels Like Friday will be released digitally via Red Distribution this March. Its first single "Feels Like Friday" was just sent to radio.
"Years ago things were going very well for me in Nashville. I recorded several tracks with the great Charlie Daniels on a southern rock album. It was never released because I felt I needed to take a break from the music business and prioritize my life. Family has to come first, but now that my daughters are nearly grown, I'm ready," Coner remarked via a press statement.
On this new project, he collaborated with such veteran country artists as Tanya Tucker and T. Graham Brown. It was produced by Greg Wright and it features a collaboration with Brown on Coner's own "Sanibel."
Coner's duet with Tucker, “Maybe She Lied,” recently held the No. 1 spot for three weeks on the European Hotdisc Top 40 Country Chart. The title track, "Feels Like Friday," was co-written by Bob DiPiero and David Lee Murphy and it is Coner's first single from his new EP. DiPiero holds 15 No. 1 hits with many artists including Tim McGraw, George Strait and Vince Gill; moreover, Murphy has co-written No. 1 hits with Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Thompson Square and many others.
