Blackjack Billy Takes America On Board "The Booze Cruise" With Latest Single Release

Officially Impacting Country Radio Now - Blackjack Billy Is Currently Featured on The Test Drive

It may only be spring, but country radio is about to get a lot hotter with a brand new version of Blackjack Billy's upcoming single, "The Booze Cruise" from Reviver Records. The country group is moving full steam ahead with their highly energetic new single. The feel-good anthem, available for download HERE, was officially released to country radio yesterday.

Due to the exposure on SiriusXM's The Highway, "The Booze Cruise" has already become an underground indie hit. Just from airplay on the satellite radio powerhouse alone, "The Booze Cruise" has already exceeded sales over 300,000 units. Fans of the group might be familiar with the song, as it made an impact north of the border in Canada upon its original release, where it was certified platinum. The song was written by members Noll Billings and Jeff Coplan, along with Chuck Jones.

Blackjack Billy member Jeff Coplan feels that the track is perfect for this time of year. "This song is just a big ol' party on the water. You can Booze Cruise out on a lake or right in your backyard with some buddies, some booze, tunes and a sprinkler."

The band, which consists of Brad Cummings and Ian Munsick - along with Billings and Coplan - is currently in the studio working on their debut Reviver Records project. In addition, the country-rockers are adding dates to their concert schedule throughout the summer. Fans can stay in touch with Blackjack Billy through their website, .

About Blackjack Billy:

Every band has their unique success formula, for Blackjack Billy it is their combination of talented songwriters, and a drummer with a gift for live performance which led to them to being called the "Rolling Stones of country music." Often called one of the hardest working bands in the business; when Blackjack Billy takes the stage with their unique blend of Country and Rock, heads turn and people take notice.

The guys play close to 100 shows a year across the U.S. and Canada, and are involved in every step of creating new music.
