TIM HICKS’ “HERE COMES THE THUNDER” ADDED TO ROTATION AT SIRIUS/XM’S “THE HIGHWAY”


Coming off a high-energy show at the 2014 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, TN, Canadian country star Tim Hicks has another reason to celebrate today as his latest single “Here Comes The Thunder” has been added to rotation at SiriusXM’s syndicated country channel THE HIGHWAY. The new single is Hicks’ fifth to be released in Canada, but the first to impact American airwaves. “Here Comes The Thunder” made its debut this morning, being introduced by host Jessica Wade:

“We’ve done it again. #HereComesTheThunder is @timhicksmusic and it’s CRAZY GOOD. On in moments! @SXMTheHighway #OhCanada”

2013 CCMA & 2014 JUNO nominated Hicks was the #1 highest selling digital Canadian Country artist of 2013 and the #1 Most Played Debut Artist overall at Country radio. He was awarded the all-genre Breakthrough Artist Of The Year award at the 2014 Canadian Radio Music Awards (CRMA’s), and just picked up the Male Artist Of The Year award at last month’s Country Music Association of Ontario Awards (CMAO’s). Throw Down, the critically praised album, debuted #1 week of release and features four Top 10 radio hits, including the GOLD-certified “Get By” & “Hell Raisin’ Good Time” (also a #1 video on CMT), plus the viral hit “Stronger Beer,” which is now approaching 1 MILLION YouTube hits.

Hicks’ forthcoming sophomore album 5:01 will be released August 5th via Open Road Recordings and includes the lead single “Here Comes The Thunder.”
