Phoenix Stone Releases EP Honky Tonk Superstar: Lead-Off Single Lands On Billboard Charts

Continuing the momentum of his smash debut country single, ‘100 Proof Moonshine,’ hit producer and songwriter, Phoenix Stone, releases digitally today his EP Honky Tonk Superstar. Produced and written by Stone, this EP features 4 original tracks that embrace his southern rock upbringing. It is available oniTunes now and included in their New & Noteworthy section.
This year has already brought him national recognition, including a Billboardmagazine online feature, a performance on the nationally syndicated television show,Daytime, and inclusion in the Nashville Lifestyle Magazine’s “25 Most Beautiful People of Nashville 2012,” alongside Lisa Marie Presley and CMT’s Cody Alan.
This project has been a long time coming for Stone, an industry vet that has worked alongside everyone from Art Garfunkel to newcomer, Liana Conway, to the platinum-selling boy band, Backstreet Boys. After landing deals withWarner/Chappell Nashville and Universal Records as a teenager, Stone opted to put his own solo career on the back burner but never lost sight of eventually making an album on his own terms.
The EP’s lead-off single, ‘100 Proof Moonshine,’ has already caught the eye of industry and fans alike. Acclaimed MusicRow reporter, Robert K. Oermannawarded the single his DisCovery Award and called it: “Very nicely produced, with a crashing drum sound, banjo grace notes, a ringing electric guitar and some hearty shouting chorus boys. Stone sings with southern gusto, and the song has loads of memorable hooks. Play it.” While KUPL Portland’s Scott Mahalick declares: “100 Proof…100% Hit!”
As part of the single promotion, Stone set out on a nationwide radio tour with OleSmoky® Moonshine, Tennessee’s First Legal Moonshine, and the success
of that tour has landed the single at #59 on the Billboard/BDS Indicator charts and steadily rising.
The accompanying music video, which was shot at Malibu’s One Gun Ranch, a sprawling  estate originally owned by a member of Guns N’ Roses, debuted today onAOL’s The Boot and can be seen here: CLICK HERE!
In addition, the video will debut on The Country Network this Friday.
