Listed in Billboard’s list of “Country Artists to Watch” independent husband-and-wife duo Terra Bella, enters 2019 with true grit as they re-sign with Songshine Media for exclusive PR representation and release their newest single, “Middle of Nowhere USA” to country radio.
“Joe and Martina [of Terra Bella] are a integral part of our musical family,” said Dakota Heflin,Founder/President of Songshine Media. “It’s my absolute pleasure and passion to represent Terra Bella as they continue to get the recognition they deserve for their valued musicianship and hearts of gold. We have a great year ahead of us.”
Penned by Joe Costa and Dustin Huff, “Middle of Nowhere USA” serves as the third single from Terra Bella’s first full-length album There’s A Country Song (May 2018) following “Before You” and the Country Rebel-premiered“Wild One,” but will be the first single to have a significant push to airwaves with an official music video to boot.
“It’s a special piece, fully shot in the our hometown of Visalia, California,” said Joe of the music video currently in it’s final stages.
“Capturing the horses and cowboys, who happen to all be close friends and family, and shots in the actual arena where I was a rodeo queen and where Joe proposed. It’s homegrown and genuinely us,” adds Martina.
Originally from California’s Central Valley, Joe and Martina Costa have been performing together for the better part of a decade. Terra Bella has toured primarily up and down the West Coast and across the United States playing clubs, theatres, and rodeos as well as opening for national acts such as Blake Shelton, Lee Brice, and Montgomery Gentry to name a few. In August of 2013, the couple decided to move 2,200 miles east to “Music City “ and further pursue their artistry. Joe has since acquired a cut on Luke Combs’ platinum-selling album This One’s For You with the song “Don’t Tempt Me”. Terra Bella was introduced to esteemed producer/guitarist, Johnny Garcia, who began to coach and produce Terra Bella’s material in between tour legs with Garth Brooks. In 2016, the debut EP Road To Forever came to fruition and scored the duo’s first Billboard Indicator (#51) and Music Row (#42) charting song with the single “You’ve Got That Somethin’.”
