EXCLUSIVE: The Kentucky Gentlemen Share Their Heartfelt Ballad ‘Love Language’ From Upcoming Debut EP
"Love Language" is one of five tracks featured on the duo's upcoming EP, which is set for release on July 22. Co-produced by Chris Sligh (Rascal Flatts) and Matt McClure (Lee Brice, Dylan Scott), the project provides a soundscape that mixes elements of today's pop-country hits, R&B and the 90s country classics that the Campbells grew up listening to. With tracks that range from breakup anthems to powerful explorations of the challenges they've personally faced as Black and gay men, The Kentucky Gentlemen: Vol. 1 acts as an impressive and long overdue introduction to the country music scene.
"There's no better feeling than finally getting to share what we've been working on for so long," they explain. "Our first EP, The Kentucky Gentlemen: Vol. 1, is just the beginning of many volumes to come in our musical journey. Since moving to Nashville as teenagers, we've experienced several chapters of our lives that have helped us grow. This chapter has been our favorite because we've truly leaned into what makes us unique. From breakup anthems to soulful country ballads to sultry summer jams, every song on this project embraces who we are."
