NASHVILLE, TENN. – Known for the depth of his heart-and-soul originals, Big Loud Records’ Tennessee troubadour Larry Fleet hits the blue-collar nail on the head today with a studio version of “Layaway,” a soon to be signature telling the simple story of hard work in hard times to provide for your family.

Narrating the tune originally released in 2022 as one of his Live From 1979 performance clips, his full-voiced baritone enlivens the song he co-wrote with Joshua Miller and Mark Trussell about showing up daily, putting ‘a little more down’ on a wish list full of gifts until he doesn’t owe a dime on a working man’s hymn for the ages.

“When times get tough, the tough get to workin’ hard where I’m from,” Fleet notes. “I worked construction for years before this dream started to take shape for me, and I know how much it takes sometimes to keep things afloat. Sacrificing for your family is one of the most admirable things in the world to me, something I’ve seen my family and friends do for each other all my life. I wanted to pay tribute to that effort and dedication and write one for them.”

The follow up to recent releases “Young Buck,” “Daddy Don’t Drink,” and “Try Texas,” “Layaway” adds to Fleet’s lauded collection of trademarks, a continuation of who he’s always been musically and a preview of what’s to come on his next full-length album due later this year.

Giving fans more opportunities to see the new tracks and fan-favorite oldies performed live with his convicting vocal chops on full display, the earnest powerhouse announced 14 additional Larry Fleet Live headline dates for the fall last week, and SOLD-OUT his first-ever Nashville headline show at country music’s Mother Church, The Ryman Auditorium.

With 25+ headline shows on the horizon, Fleet is keeping his foot on the gas, revving up his schedule with support slots with Parker McCollum and Jon Pardi, along with several festivals and fairs including Summerfest, Country Fest, Country Stampede, and Moon River Music Festival.

“I just can’t believe the way these folks have shown up for us,” Fleet says in awe of his touring demand. “This headline run has really started pickin’ up steam and the boys and I can feel it every night on stage. To have these shows to look forward to, especially at the Ryman which almost feels like a hometown show nowadays the way those crowds are so good to us. Shoot, to get to headline there and to sell it out so fast like that?”

Tennessee-born troubadour Larry Fleet grew up on a stack of records spanning Merle Haggard, Otis Redding, Willie Nelson, and Marvin Gaye. A thoughtful songwriter with a knack for a one-liner, an ear for a sturdy hook, and a powerhouse voice that strikes like a match, Fleet was working blue-collar jobs to make ends meet before a chance encounter with Jake Owen led to an opening slot on the road and a recording contract with Big Loud Records. Six years later, the devout family man is turning heads among fans and critics alike with albums full of soon-to-be-classics; 2021’s tribute to the music that raised him, Stack of Records, and his aptly titled 2019 debut, Workin’ HardSaving Country Music puts it simply: “If you’re looking for the future of traditional country music, then look no further than…Larry Fleet.” A road-tested live show standout, Fleet wrapped 2022 with his first-ever headline One For The Road Tour, following up crowd-winning opening slots in front of Darius Rucker, Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Jon Pardi, and many more. He just extended his current headlining run, Larry Fleet Live, and will open dates for Parker McCollum all summer long.
